Celebrate Memorial Day Weekend with a Dance Party, Vinyl DJ Bash at Bobby's Place by Alex Bieler
JOE JUREWICZ

Sometimes you just have to dance. It doesn’t matter if you’re light on your toes or if you’ve got two left feet, a little boogie can lead to a whole night of fun, especially when there’s an all-vinyl DJ bash going on in The Flagship City.

Fortunately for you, there is an all-vinyl DJ bash planned for May 23 at Bobby’s Place, with the Memorial Day Weekend Dance Party providing you the perfect outlet to move and groove. A talented trio of DJs will be pumping out jams from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., as Ben Frazier, Steve Maynard, and Matt Texter will serve as music central for the dance party. Locals will know Maynard from his days as host of Bring Your Own Vinyl Night at the crooked i and Texter from his soulful solo work and emceeing skills at Bobby’s Place’s Open Mic Nights. Frazier currently resides in Rochester, N.Y., but has some strong ties to Erie, thanks to the years he spent behind the counter at The Record Den in the ‘90s.

The three men will wield their vinyl collections in an attempt to make the most groovetastic, booty shake-inducing bash Erie has seen in a while (or at least this Memorial Day weekend). Between some classic hip-hop, Motown, new wave, and any other music that will get your toes a tappin’ and your hips a swingin’, Frazier, Maynard, and Texter are on a mission to make you move, so get your dancing shoes ready for a night at Bobby’s Place May 23. --Alex Bieler
