KXCR Florence’s public community radio station invites all dancers to get on their blue suede shoes and enjoy an evening of the best music of the 1950’s. It’s happening on the back dance floor at the Elks Club on Saturday, October 22, 7PM.
DJ James Bonisteel’s amazing collection of discs and vintage vinyl will keep the joint jumpin’ and memories flowing. If you remember the 50s you’ll know Chuck Berry’s ‘Johnny Be Goode’, The Everly Brothers’ ‘Bye Bye Love’ and Buddy Holly’s ‘That’ll Be The Day’ not to mention classics like Nat Cole’s ‘When I Fall In Love’, The Platters’ ‘Only You’, Sam Cooke’s ‘You Send Me’ and, of course, Elvis’ ‘Heart Break Hotel’. And the list goes on: James Brown, Bo Diddley, Ray Charles, Little Richard, Patsy Cline, Richie Valens, The Coasters and more.
Show up and show off your ducktail and pegged pants or party dress and beehive hair to enter and win costume party prizes. Dance contest and free food treats round out the evening’s activities.
