BEE GEES PARTY
SATURDAY, AUGUST 27. Join me, RON BOLIN, THE DANCIN' DJ, for a fun night of dancing with a focus on the music of THE BEE GEES. Ranked the 3rd most popular musical artists of the 1970s (behind Elton John and Paul McCartney) Barry Gibb with twin brothers Maurice and Robin had 25 hits on the Pop chart from 1967 to 1974 (including lots of well-written, heart-felt, violin-laden ballads) before they became the "kings of disco" starting in 1975. They racked up 48 chart hits in all. I'll also include hits by their younger brother ANDY GIBB and solo hits by Barry plus his hit duets with other artists. There will of course be a lot of disco songs and Hustle will be my pre-dance lesson, but about half their hits were pre-disco and I'll play plenty of them too.

I'll also include songs by other artists
to round out the evening as the Bee Gees songbook doesn't have as much variety as some musical artists ... although believe it or not, they did have one hit on the County chart that I'll be sure to play ... and yes, it does sound Country! The dance is open to everyone, singles and couples of all ages. I see to it that there is always lots of mixing at my dances so you don't need to come with a partner. Soft drinks and water will be available for sale. PLEASE NOTE SUMMER HOURS:

7:30 - 8:30 PM: Hustle lesson. No partner or experience needed. I'll teach the basics (you'll find them easy the way I teach them) plus fun variations.
8:30 - 11:30 PM: Dance!
The Bee Gees have great music for Freestyle, Hustle, Swing, and Nightclub Two-Step.

Cost: Lesson and dance is $15. Dance with no lesson is $12.
Location: The Hayloft Dance Hall, 15320 - 35th Ave West, Lynnwood. 2,600 square foot sprung hardwood dance floor and an awesome sound system.
