Dancing Queen

Elizabeth Park hosted its regular Wednesday night concert, with Steppin' Out, a six-piece band with a sax, guitar, bass, keyboards, drums and a female singer.  They mainly perform foot-stomping, body-swaying dance music of the '70s through the '90s.  I'm going to show a bunch today.  You can stop looking whenever you want.










Did I dance?  Noooo.  That would have made the camera shake.

This is a large crowd for a concert in a park. People of all generations seem to be having a good time. Music can be a "generation gapper," with people people enjoying different music based on what they listened to when they came of age. Your photos show a broader appeal of this music in the park experience.

Sounds like fun evening.

The appreciative crowd is quite large. This is one of the perks of summer: people of all ages getting together to enjoy outdoor activities: music, markets, art fairs, music...you name it. LOVE SUMMER! Love the diverse facial expressions on the people in your photos

There is a bit of ABBA resemblance in a couple of the blond shots.

I love all your photos today, Jack! Everyone looks like they're having such a great time! The 70s to 90s were great dancing years to be sure and I most certainly did my share! Loved it! Thanks for the fun start to my day! Enjoy yours!

Such a big crowd for this event and everyone looks like they are having a wonderful time. It kind of make me think of the two years I spent working in Chicago where they had Movies in the Park at Grant park. I was always amazed at the number of people it drew and again, everyone having a great time.

But the question is: Jack, did you dance?

I bet this was wonderful, I don't mind that kind of crowd!

Excuses, excuses. Just get out there and shake it!

Nice photos of what looks like a good time. I'm not much of a dancer either, though!

Dawn said...

Whoa...people really get in to their dance moves don't they?
I'd feel safer on your side of the camera I think:)

VP said...

I would have liked to attend, taking pictures with you!

Halcyon said...

Beautiful pics!

Jacob said...

Looks like great fun. And reminds me of The Villages except in The Villages most of the folks are a bit older!

jennyfreckles said...

Great to see people enjoying themselves, all generations together. The more I see of your Elizabeth Park the more I think it serves the same purposes as Roberts Park in Saltaire - though you have better weather!

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Everyone looks like their having a great time. Nice when a community can come together like this.

SRQ said...

I love the shot of the guitarist. Your assignment next Wednesday should be "photographer involvement"! P.S. See my other comment about HDP & portraits!

beam me up, that looks like fun. My favorite is the second to last shot, he looks like a cool cat and someone that would be interesting to meet.
