Saturday Night Dance Party

After my last post, I thought I'd post more photos of people dancing again to 80's music!

No, not more grainy, retro photos scanned from my college years but photos from our neighborhood's block party. The festivities last night didn't disappoint - the weather was perfect, we brought our lawn chairs and a couple of beers and the band provided the music, entertainment and memories from our high school and college years.

They are called The Brat Pack - they bring back all those killer songs from the 80s and sprinkle in some recent hits, too.

Case in point - the main singer is dressed up as Lady Gaga here:

That was early in their three hour set, full of energy, numerous costume changes and great music.

It wasn't until darkness settled in that the crowd started to dance in earnest, though. Why is that?

Each band member has an 80s "alter ego" - these two are Lynn D Lauper and Brendan Goes to Hollywood. Kitschy, right? Just like the 80s.

The bassist was my favorite - she was having a great time kicking it all night long.

They had a fabulous light show which is always fun (and a bit challenging) to photograph.

The Brat Pack plays all around Central Illinois and even our old stomping ground in Indiana. We hope the neighborhood gets them back next year!

Great shots Shirley -- 80s music is my favorite era too. :)

My goodness, Shirley, they really go "all out!!"
This is wonderful, and what fun it must have been!
Glad you had a great time!

Wonderful Shirley! Makes me nostalgic just looking at your photos... p.s. I tend to wait til dark to get on the dance floor myself ;)
