Night Fever: Tribute Band of Bee Gees

I love Bee Gees. I grew up listening to them, and Saturday Night Fever happens to be a favorite. Of course, so is Tragedy and Words but then again… who’s counting, right? So when K from Team Gingerclaps asked me whether I want to attend the Event: Black Dog Evenings with Night Fever: A Tribute to Bee Gees I jump at the chance.

My partner for the evening is the glorious S from Sorelle Grapevine . We hit the bar and eat some food and drinks to keep us company while the band sets up (this is a Black Dog Event after all!!!) and the bar tender takes pity on me and transforms my Chilli Vodka with Tomato Juice into a Bloody Mary which is tart, spicy, cold and exactly the way I like it.

Food is also there, and we do eat from a couple of counters, my favorite being the cheese balls which are moist on the inside and crunchy on the outside. We also eat something called Cheese Korean Roll, but they are cold, although tasted nice, and it took away from the taste of it. Later we go get chicken rolls and egg rolls because both of us are hungry after all that dancing.

Tuning up the Synth before the show begins.

Night Fever, a tribute band to Bee Gees came down all the way from Canada get up on the stage around 8 pm, and they start playing. I must say –  at first we were listening to some of the songs which are not too popular with the crowd but not stunningly so, but then they warm up to us, and we warm up to them, and well, after a while, we start dancing. So many favorites – Islands in the Stream, New York Mining Disaster 1941, How Deep is Your Love, Stayin’ Alive… we are bowled over and disco fever truly takes over and the crowd goes wild dancing.

Fire Breathers!!!

There is also a couple of fire breathers who decide to put up shows and play with bottles of fire and breathe massive bulks of flame. Its a fun show and I watch with rapt fascination. Which is one of the reasons for the pictures being murky.

The lead singer who was pretty hot. 

The band takes one last request after they finish – Tragedy. I get super excited, and drag S back to the dance floor to dance one last time. The show gets over at perfect time – right around 10 pm, and CC & FC is once again back to normal. The people who were dancing with abandon minutes ago straighten themselves, and look around for a drink. We quietly leave, our hearts and minds filled with the music and the memories of the fever.
