So this Friday I am staying home and putting rollers in my hair (long story for another post), but last Friday, Steven and I and a couple of friends partied like it was the ’80s’s. Yes, I said like it was the 1980’s, not like we were in our 80’s (although that it does feel like sometimes). We went to the American Legion in Mohawk and danced to the sounds of The Posers.
We had never heard the band before, but we were interested because the bassist is our good friend, Rick DeJohn. We got to the Legion shortly before they started. I texted the couple who planned to meet us that we had arrived. They soon joined us, and we were enjoying the band.
It was not long before they played a song I remembered well from my days of watching Mtv, back when they actually played music most of the time. I asked Steven to dance with me. We bogeyed down! Not many people had been dancing prior to this, but afterwards, the dance floor started to fill up. We danced a lot, and I loved it. They did not only play 1980’s music. We enjoyed it all. It was easy to see the band was having fun, and I think everyone listening was having fun as well.
The Posers will be playing at the Team Rebecca Fundraiser at the Ilion Moose Lodge, on Barringer Road this Saturday, Feb. 18. Donation for admission is $15. For more information, go to http://teamrebecca.alfordplace.com/. For more information on The Posers, you can visit their Facebook page.
