We are mixing
Motown (1959-1972) songs
with Old Vegas Swingin’ Martini Night
(1956 -1966 Vegas Swing)
America was very NightClub oriented during this
16 year timespan and Nightclub people
could dress to the hilt when they went out.
These songs make people smile and be hip, and it is
more of a Retro Nightclub experience
when dressed like the “in crowd”.
With this night the wardrobe runs
from suits with thin ties
to all kinds of wild and/or stunning dresses.
To pinpoint the fashion of the day
choose any well-dressed character
between 1956 and 1972.
