Who didn’t like that magical era? Women had big hair, platform shoes, sequins, feathers, tight strapless colorful culottes, bell-bottoms, and halter neck tops. Both, men and women wore long hair or big afro’s. Men also wore bright colorful three-piece suits with unbuttoned-wide lapel shirts, as well as one piece tight jumpsuits. Others took the John Travolta look of the hit movie Saturday Night Fever, the famous white disco three-piece suit. It was an era to dress different to make a statement.
Then there were places to go to show off all that, like Studio 54 in NYC, where the rich and very famous went to dance all night and do crazy stuff.
However, the most impacting element of that era continues to be the music. We are still listening to artists from the 70’s today. You’ll recognize their music if you hear it. Last Dance: Donna Summer; We are Family: Sister Sledge; YMCA: The Village People; Boogie Wonderland: Earth Wind and Fire; Staying Alive: Bee Gees; Disco Inferno: The Tramps; well the list is endless.
Recently, I had the opportunity to attend the 70’s Disco Live Show that is travelling the country, at the MGM National Harbor, in Maryland. The MGM at the National Harbor, is located in Prince George’s County, MD, a county that I adore, about 15 to 20 minutes from our nations Capital Washington, DC.
The show had all the sequins, outfits, colors and especially, the best music of the 70’s. It was very entertaining and people attending couldn’t stop dancing from beginning to end.
If you want to have an awesome time watching (and dancing) this live show, Google: Disco Live Tour for locations and tickets.
