Nyack Weekender: Disco Party and Kids Try Hockey

This weekend take a trip down memory lane with a Disco Party with Randy Jones of the Village People at the Union Arts Center and a Doo-Wop Sunday. There’s also jazz, a country jam, folk, funk-fusion and rock. The kids can get active with sports instruction or see a family-friendly comedic play.

  • Your favorite lovable family of creepy kooks is alive and well and living in their super-spooky mansion in Central Park.

Fri at 8p, Sat at 7p, Sun at 2p & 7p, Tarrytown Music Hall, 13 Main St, Tarrytown. Runs through Feb 4.

  • Swing out of the week with the jazz and funk of the Albert “Ahlfabet” Swing Group and Collision Theory. Enjoy traditional swing jazz in the style of Louis Armstrong and Bix Biederbecke and the unique sounds of funk-fusion. 10:30p, Olive´s, 118 Main St, Nyack.


Come in your best 70’s threads –or come as you are– and dance all night at a Disco Party with Randy Jones of the Village People.
