Yeah, I have. If you like live music and you like to dance, it's fun. If you don't, it's not. Basically, the band plays for a couple hours and they have some lookalike and costume contests. I enjoy it but I know most of my friends usually give it a pass.

If I actually get to go to Fest next year, I want to go to the dance!

I want to have an authentic 1965 dress on (found a pattern!)
and have my hair done in a 1965 style and wear pumps. I want to
dance to mid-60's top 40 tunes!

Oh, Sweet Pea, c'mon and dance with me
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon and dance with me-e-e-e!

My name for the evening will be "Francie." Unless I have short hair.
Then it will be "Midge."

I've never been to the Friday Night Dance party. I usually just go all day Saturday and Sunday.
For those of you who did go, do they actually play all music from the 60's - or is it all just Beatles music?

Just Beatles. That's actually one of my suggestions, that they should either have two bands, the Beatles band and another general 60's band or a 60's DJ for when the band takes its breaks, so people could keep dancing and have a variety. Of course, Mark would never listen to me, so....

Yes, Rell, I want to hear "Little Bit o'Soul," "Come On Down to My Boat, Baby,"
"I Fought the Law" and all those, too!

For my "Francie" look, the white dress:

Yes, you must and we will join the Chicago Seven-or-So at the party!
We'll turn it on its ear, doing the Frug, the Monkey, and the Jerk!
And we'll win all the prizes!

"...and you can do it too, it's easy (so easy)

Like taking candy from a baby!"
