Special Event: Oldies Dance Party
January 23 @ 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
Oldies Dance Party
It’s time to dust off your white bucks, penny loafers, and your blue suede shoes and join us for a trip down memory lane. This is about history Daddy-O…the musical kind when Elvis, The Beatles, Sam Cooke, Little Richard, Buddy Holly, The Crystals, Frankie Avalon, Neil Sedaka, The Bee Gees, and a host of other music titans ruled the airwaves. “DJ Al,” will play hits from the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s —the tunes you love and remember.
NO COSTUME REQUIRED …NO PARTNER, EITHER.
On the flip side, for anyone who dresses in costume, there will be prizes for “Best Outfit” plus “Best Couple’s Spot Dance” (think “American Graffiti”), and trivia questions.
Alan “DJ Al,” Fisher loves playing “the oldies.” He was on the radio for seven years, four of those as host of a morning show. After his on-air stint, “DJ Al,” worked as a lawyer, judge, and teacher. He’s been a part time DJ at dances, promotions, festivals, and car shows for the last 40 years. DJ Al has emceed for Eddy Arnold, Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, and Ray Price and interviewed many country music artists including George Hamilton IV, Bill Anderson, and Loretta Lynn.
Come out and enjoy OLLI at Ringling College’s first Oldies Dance!
