Gala dance event caters to baby boomer generation

St. Maarten – Lovers of music from the seventies, eighties and early nineties will be taken down memory lane during the first “Night to Remember” gala and dance on September 29.
The event is expected to become an annual one and will be held at the Hope Estate Senior Citizens Recreational and Community Centre near the M. Genevieve de Weever school.
One of the promoters of the event, Vanessa Fraser said that she was motivated to host an event of this nature because she believes that countless entertainment activities are held on the island but few cater to a mature audience.
“A lot of places that you go to you will find that the music is only for young folks, but grown people want to enjoy themselves as well. Our generation is starving for the music from yesteryear; music that we can reflect on, laugh, cry or have fun.”
Fraser partnered with a local DJ, Cleon Jeffrey to pull off the event which will feature the best of old school funk, rock, jazz, soca, calypso and soul.
“Since the theme will be a night to remember we want to make it special for you. You can choose to dress retro and win the best dressed old school couple prize and more” Fraser added. Mature folks who are good on their feet can dance their way into a another prize by doing the foxtrot, jive, waltz, funky Charleston, Macarena, tootsie roll, running man and other old dance moves. Teaspoon-One Man Band starts the ball rolling at 8:00 pm.
