Upstairs Lounge hosting Retro Rock Revival for 50’s dance party May 11

Get your dancing shoes on and hop on down to the Upstairs Lounge Dance Party this Saturday, with Retro Rock Revival providing the tunes.

Unlike the listening shows you may have attended at the venue, event promoters Beacon Ridge Productions encourage attendees to get up and get down to the sounds of this five-piece Vancouver Island band.

Led by project founder Richard Spencer on lead guitar and Terry Marshall, the entertaining former member of Victoria band The Sutcliffes, Retro Rock Revival churns out popular favourites from the 1950s that are sure to get your toes tappin’ and your fingers snappin.’

Supporting these two on songs ranging from hits by Elvis Presley to Fats Domino and more are Mike Berman on drums, KC Hingley on bass and Ralph Barrat on keyboards.

The dance gets underway at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $20 in advance at the Oak Bay Rec Centre, at Nicholas Randall Ltd at 2180 Oak Bay Ave., by phone at 250-595-7946 and online at eventbrite.ca. They will be $25 at the door.
