Boomer Dance Party is a DJ service for the baby boomer generation.
Boomers were born between the years of 1946 and 1964, which makes us roughly a population in our mid-50''s to early 70's. The Elvis years. Doo-Wop. Motown.The Girl Groups. Beach/Car Music. British Invasion. Psychedelic. Disco.
We are the generation that danced to the Twist, the Frug, the Mashed Potato, the Jerk, the Pony, the Watusi and a dozen other steps that came an went on shows like American Bandstand, The Lloyd Thaxton Show, Shindig, Where The Action Is, and Hullabaloo. Later, we learned how to Boogaloo and Shingaling by tuning in to Soul Train on Saturday morning.
I started Boomer Dance Parties because my wife and I are passionate about dancing, but we were frustrated by DJs who play a few "oldies" and "wedding reception perennials" as they made their way to more contemporary music that just didn't do it for us. Seriously, have you ever watched baby boomers trying to dance to hip hop?
I play the dance tunes from the era that created dance parties. Hey you...baby boomer. Do you want to sit there listening to music...or get off your ass and dance?
