June 23 | Boogie Wonder Band
The most celebrated DISCO band of our generation! If we didn’t know better, we’d say that the Boogie Wonder Band, arrived via a time machine because this 10-piece band busts out funk-a-licious grooves and disco-strutting jams like they are straight out of the ’70s. Channeling the era with a full-throttle high-octane live show, each member dons eye-popping Las Vegas-inspired costumes and flashy personas. They don’t just hail from another land; they come from another decade – where Disco ruled the dance floors!
