8:00 PM to 10:30 PM

The audience will see silhouettes of a band onstage, video will roll in the background with narrating trivia prior to each song. There will be a pause. The audience is encouraged to shout out their guess of what song is coming up. The song starts, the crowd cheers with “oohs” and “ahhs” as some got it right and some got it wrong and others go “Wow, I didn’t know that”. We sorted through 20 years of over a thousand songs into a one - 100 minute show. The main criteria was to trim it to hit songs that are still relevant and memorable still to this day. We made our pick of songs that we feel will never get old. Hit songs by Patti Page, Dean Martin, Johnny Cash, Fats Domino, Frank Sinatra, Little Richard, The Platters, Bill Haley and the Comets, Elvis, Paul Anka, Patsy Cline, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ritchie Valens, Buddy Holly, Ricky Nelson, Chuck Berry, Paul Anka, The Platters, Chubby Checker, Dion, The Four Seasons, The Beatles, Roy Orbison, The Temptations, The Supremes, The Rolling Stones, Sonny and Cher, James brown and more…. The grandparents of today that grew up in this era should bring along their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to see how cool they really were back then, how great the music and dance moves were and not to forget the fantastic cars back. You will have to explain to these young guns a few things like what a 45 record is, A side, B side, and that there was no such thing as a cell phone. Tell them why you hung around a place called “The Diner”. Did we mention the fantastic cars of that time? Yes back to cars, I drove a 1955 Chevy 2 door and later a ‘69 - Z28 Camaro and I still kick myself for selling them. What car do you wish you still have today? We encourage the audience to come dressed in the 50’s or 60’s outfit they most love. If there are any local dance groups that can dance 50’s style let us know. Hope to see you cheering for your favorite years of music. ----------------------------------
