$5 Dance Lessons Available One Hour Before Event Begins

MELBOURNE, FL, December 17, 2018 – Rock & Roll Revue, an ensemble of the Melbourne Municipal Band, will present its second ‘50s-style sock hop on Friday, Jan. 25, beginning at 7 p.m. at the Melbourne Auditorium, 625 Hibiscus Blvd. Tickets are $10, and can be purchased at the door, at any Swingtime or MMB event, and at Swingtime Ticket outlets (listed below). ‘50s dress is optional.

Rock & Roll Revue is an 8-piece combo that plays music from the 1950s and 1960s. Vocalist Len Fallen will perform, along with the Swingtimers Vocal Trio – Connie Maltby, Diana Sageser and Dave Hutson – singing Doo-Wop music.

“Our first sock hop last year was a sellout, and so many attendees were asking when we would have another, so we are kicking off 2019 with this fun evening,” said Conductor Art Martin. “Whether you love to dance or just love the music of the rock ‘n roll era, we invite you to join us. We’ll be playing all the favorites, including Let’s Hang On, At the Hop, Your Mama Don’t Dance, Shake, Rattle and Roll, Louie Louie, Dream Lover and Jailhouse Rock.

The event is BYOB. Tables can be reserved in advance for eight or more people by calling MMB Auxiliary President Marci Hutson at 321-339-7705.

Those who would like to brush up on their dancing skills can do so from 6 to 7 p.m., when Laura Beers offers lessons (www.adancersvoice.com or 751-4766). The fee for lessons is $5, payable to the instructor.
