Could it be 40 years ago?
Yes, it’s been four long decades since John Travolta’s sinuous moves in Saturday Night Fever made a generation believe we could dance our cares away.
You can revisit those heady nights of disco dancing this Saturday, September 9, when the tribute band the New York Bee Gees reprises the band that set the sound tone for the 1977 movie.
Jefferson Patterson Park’s pavilion turns into a disco for the occasion, adding Raniere Martin’s portrayal of disco queen Donna Summer to deepen the illusion. You say you know Jefferson Patterson Park for its outdoors focus on environment, history, heritage and archaeological education? Fun times like this support those programs.
“We had a Beatles band last September, which was very well received,” says Friends coordinator Carol Frederick. “So we decided to focus on tribute bands and host this fun retro group.”
Doors open at 7pm, food, beer and wine sold; Jefferson Patterson Park, St. Leonard, $50 w/discounts, rsvp: http://friendsofjppm.org/event/live-at-jeff-patt/.
