Disco Night: Save the Date

Black Creek to Host Gallery Disco

Do you long to take a trip in a time machine back to the “funkadelic” era of the 70’s and 80’s? If so, Black Creek Arts Council will be hosting Gallery Disco on Saturday, February 28th from 7pm to 11pm. To purchase tickets, stop by Black Creek Arts Council, Burry Bookstore, or contact any BCAC board member. Advance ticket prices are $25 per person. Tickets will be $30 at the door.

Gallery Disco will feature a live disc jockey playing classic hits from the Disco era. Don’t worry about bringing your best dance moves, as dance instructors will be available to help you “shake your groove thang.”

For those of you “cool cats” who may not be familiar with disco, your evening at Black Creek’s Gallery Disco will take you back to the beginnings of the musical influences of funk and soul. You will groove to the sounds and styles of nostalgia from artists such as KC and the Sunshine Band, Queen, and Donna Summer.

Feel free to dress up in your favorite 70’s or 80’s attire for your evening at Gallery Disco. Light refreshments and desserts will be served. Mark your calendars on February 28, 2009 so you can “get down and boogie” with Saturday night fever!
