In a couple days, the Konover Great Room, located on the University of Hartford campus will be booming with tunes from your mom and dad’s era—unless, of course, you are Mom and Dad—then why not join us to boogie oogie oogie and get down to some of your Saturday Night Fever favorites? The catch? You have to dress the part. But be cool, man! Just go to your nearest Goodwill or Savers and grab some thrifty bell-bottoms and a flowered shirt, and you’ll be ready to feel the funk.
Pay $4 at the door and listen to a 20+ piece band play a range of groovy hits, from “Disco Inferno” by The Trammps to Jamiroquai’s “Canned Heat.” The role of the fundraiser is to honor Justin Campeau who passed away with Leukemia Lymphoma. Campeau was a viola performer who not only shared his brothers’ love for music, but altogether reinstated the Phi Mu Alpha chapter. The fraternity’s website gives further information.
Not only do the brothers of Phi Mu Alpha wish to pay tribute to Justin Campeau for his hard work and dedication to music, but they wish to donate to a cause that aims to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. The organization also aims to improve the quality of life for patients and family.
So get freaky-deaky and come to the Konover Great Room at 8:30 pm this Thursday night for some good vibes and hip dance moves. If you didn’t live through disco, you’re ready to get down—and if you did, don’t fight the urge to relive it. You know this boogie is for real.
