Tuesday, Jan. 28 will be our next ’50s and ’60s Sock Hop. It will be held in the MountainView Ballroom, doors and the cash bar will open at 5 p.m., the buffet will be served at 5:30 p.m.
The meal will include a plated salad, rolls, and butter, comfort food meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy, a garden vegetable, and cookies!
This gives us a chance to socialize before the action starts!
Tickets are on sale at the MountainView office, they are $30 per person.
When 2 Jacks and a Julie (aka Wild Ride) start playing, then we get down to serious dancing! They play Swing, West Coast Swing, Cha Chas rumbas, and a few Waltzes. They do a great job of mixing in some slower dances, so we could keep our energy from flagging. They play Elvis, the Righteous Brothers, the Everly Brothers, and even Patsy Cline. I love to see the tables empty for Unchained Melody. Even if you don’t dance, it is a pleasure listening to this band perform. I think they are the most exciting band in Tucson. They play from 6:30 until 9:30 p.m.
For those of us still there, after 8:30 p.m., they play requests, and really rock it out!
These Sock Hops are a blast!
Get your partners, your neighbors, and anyone you want to share a memorable evening with, and come join us in a trip back to our golden youth!
Wear your poodle skirt, your rolled-up jeans, or Tucson casual, just dress for fun! Dance to your own beat, dance like you wanted to in your youth! Stan and I wouldn’t miss it, join us!
