Some of you may remember the days immediately following Saturday Night Fever when the Bee Gees rocketed to superstardom. Bell bottoms and disco were the rage. But even if you were too young to experience it, there’s always the band Night Fever.
This Bee Gees tribute band played at the Place des Festival here in Montreal on Thursday night and rocked out a great set of classic Bee Gees hits. Admittedly, disco was never my thing as a kid. But over time a blend of nostalgia and maturity has helped me appreciate music that was just about feeling the rhythm and appreciating your dance partner.
All the hits came out. You Should Be Dancing, Somebody To Love and of course Saturday Night Fever were on deck and the crowd responded with cheers for each new cover song. And despite the annoying roleplaying with, “Hey, brother Maurice,” or “Now, brother Barry,” the show elicited the kind of response from the audience that is usually reserved for the real band.
Kudos once more to the Festimania people, who are hosting us, for giving us such open access to so many show. We had a great time at this performance.
