‘Get Ready’ (The Temptations,1966)….I ‘Heard It Through The Grapevine’ (Marvin Gaye, 1968)…there’d be some ‘Dancing In The Street’ (Martha and the Vandellas, 1964)!!! When you start the evening with a Sloe Gin Fizz, you know you are back in the 60’s! Add a great disc jockey and disco ball, and you’ve got ladies dancing even before dinner is served. This was one fun night with everyone getting into the retro spirit!
The L3 Ladies celebrated the 60th Anniversary of Motown in style! The outfits ranged from cool hippie style to The Supremes Chic. This elegant, sophisticated night club environment sported a rocking vibe for sure! A disco ball, suspended from the ceiling front and center, threw myriad spots of light spinning around the walls of the room. The decorated tables were as beautiful and clever as could be….“vinyl record” placemats encircled gorgeous floral arrangements of oranges, yellows & purples … floating candles adorned with musical notes and more vinyl records added the perfect touch! Posters of our favorites lined the walls, including The Supremes, Smokey Robinson & more…. .
Dashing bartenders, Tony Ying, Richard Warner, and Jack Lambe, concocted Manhattans and Sloe Gin Fizzes. Now those were some specialty cocktails! This party’s definitely getting started! Daryl, the DJ, played famous songs from the era, as well as contemporary hits and from then on, everyone danced the night away! Countless people described the night as “a real blast from the past” – check it out below!
A magnanimous thank you to our superbly talented hostesses; Michelle Warner, Jackie Perrotti and Sue Ying. These rockin’ “Supremes” worked tirelessly to put on this fantastic Motown event!
