We did this last summer and I am going to repeat it for this summer as well, since we had such a great turnout.
The event is a one-time volunteer event with Volunteers of America to help sort and pack the backpacks and supplies as part of Operation Backpack.
As this event is still a few months away, I will update with information as we get closer to the summer months. Please note: date and location is TBA. The event will most definitely take place in August 2020. Thanks.
We will be joining the world-famous Rhythm Revue for one of their annual dance parties.
Some of you may know or heard of legendary DJ Felix Hernandez' ultimate "Rhythm Revue" dance parties or heard his show on WBGO FM.
This event features "Retro Soul" music featuring soul music from the 60s and 70s. Tickets are $20 plus a service fee of $4.86 and can be purchased here:
Everyone will be responsible for purchasing their own ticket(s). You are welcome to bring a guest, if you choose to.
Please note: seating is General Admission and seating is scarce. Drinks are available but NO FOOD. We should get there around 5:15 to get a good place on the line and hopefully seating inside.
Wear your flat shoes and something cute and sexy because you will be dancing the night away! 60s and 70s means Motown, Funk and Disco! Should be fun!
Unless you were living in a cave on the dark side of the moon, you have heard of Daryl Hall and John Oates.
This is a bucket-list thing for me. I have no idea how we're going to do this, but come heck or high water, I'm going to figure it out.
Tickets are on sale. Ticket prices range from $48 to the high $300s. Of course, the more you pay, the closer you will be to the stage and the less you pay, the further away you will be. The good news is that the Jones Beach Theater is 15,000.
If you are interested in going, RSVP. Then I'll gather up the RSVPs and we'll figure out how much we want to pay. I'll collect the money and purchase the tickets.
I am purchasing these tickets on Monday, February, 24 in the evening. I'm leaning towards tickets in the $70-$100 range. I honestly wouldn't mind sitting in the rafters just to hear them. But that's me.
We'll all meet at Penn Station and catch the LIRR out to Jones Beach. This concert takes place on a Tuesday night so we'll be getting back into Manhattan fairly late (11 PM-ish) so please plan accordingly.
