Dance to the Boogie Wonder Band at Mohegan Sun
One can pretty easily argue that hip hop changed not just music but also society. One could also argue, though, that in doing so, hip hop also sorta helped ruin disco.
Yes, change is inevitable - but plenty of folks still revere the music and dance floors of the '70s and early '80s, when Kool & the Gang, Michael Jackson, the Ohio Players, KC & the Sunshine Band, Rick James, Donna Summer and Chic were dominant forces.
Fortunately, the members of a show group called the Boogie Wonder Band have devoted their collective careers to replicating the sounds of that indelible musical era. Their talents will be on full display New Year's Eve in the Mohegan Sun Wolf Den. If ever a night called for this sort of a soundtrack, it's the final evening of the year.
