Boogie Nights, a nationally renowned 1970s and 1980s themed dance party, recently opened to disco flashback, rave reviews, Technicolor fever, celebrity impersonators and a popular vibe that will continue on Saturday nights through early part of this year at Tahoe South’s MontBleu Resort Casino and Spa.

Sequins, polyester, afros, spandex and disco balls were out in full force at the grand re-opening of Blu Nightclub, which has been transformed to the “if-it-feels-good-then-do-it” era of smiley faces, retro furniture and shag carpet.

The new 400-square foot, light-up dance floor holds grids of LEDs in a multitude of colors that change with the beat of high energy dance tunes from the ’70s and ’80s.

“Boogie Nights dance club visionary, Dave Pena, has the pulse on what appeals to multiple generations and knows how to create a high-spirited, energetic atmosphere,” said Dave Davis, director of entertainment for MontBleu. “Blu Nightclub’s dance floor was packed all night with people singing and grooving to the music. We’re looking forward to more action-packed parties this winter.”

Talent stars in the party mix featured spot-on Michael Jackson moves by Cooley Jaxson, a regular dancer on the ’70s and ’80s disco-era “Solid Gold” TV show, who coincidently taught a young King of Pop, Michael Jackson, the famous moonwalk. Cheers broke out from the crowd as Cooley performed all of Michael’s dance moves from the crotch grab to the toe stand.

Other celebrity impersonators included Madonna, Joan Jett, Tina Turner and friends. Mr. Boogie, Roller Girl and Hula Hoop Girl plus a team of Go-Go Dancers also kept on grooving throughout the evening.

Boogie Nights is a time machine to hip, funky, slammin’ jams and iconic dance moves. The Ultimate Dance Party is every Saturday night at Blu Nightclub starting at 8 p.m. for people 21 and over.

Tickets at the door for $10. Admission is free when dressed in ’70s and ’80s attire.
