UPCOMING EVENTS FOR DANCING
If You Are Looking To Dance …
From Pop Music, to the Swing of old New York with a mix of Electro French touch beats, they only have one thing in mind: to make generations of people dance, sway, and sing along to melodies that stay in your head long after GINKGOA has left the building and for as long as the Ginkgo, their tree totem, continues to survive.
Fri, April 21, 7pm – 10pm Mamma’s Marmalade TheFalcon Underground Marlboro NY
Mamma’s Marmalade is a progressive bluegrass band from Amherst, MA that’s been playing around New England since 2014 and getting people dancing everywhere we go. Fusing bluegrass, rock, and jazz, we’ve built up a good following around the Pioneer Valley, but we’re always looking to expand elsewhere.
Disco Music is the Root Music of the 70’s Sub Culture Nightlife Scene …
*Disco music is all about the dance … the high energy, the beat came initially from a funk, soul, r&b background. The dance club scene was regularly responsible for breaking major hits. Ed Ward, in The Rolling Stone Illustrated History of Rock & Roll (2nd edition), notes that, in this setting, who was playing the records was often more important than what the records were. Deejays helped determine the way records were made. Album-sized singles were introduced to fill deejay needs; these “disco singles” became so popular that a large number of them were released commercially. Radio stations didn’t just add disco cuts to their playlists, they often went all disco. Record companies competed to hire disco insiders and artists.
Enjoy this mix set by Freaky Frankie DJ Ramos.
