The Fabulous ’80s Dance Party was a weekly DJ night at the Haunt for many years, but after a long hiatus, DJ Nicky Wood is starting anew, tonight at the Range!
“I’ve had lots of offers” to bring back the ’80s Dance Party, says Nicky, “but I’ve never gone with it until Cass called,” referring to Range booking manager Cass Medcalf. The Range, in a second floor space overlooking the Downtown Ithaca Commons, hosts live music, karaoke, and DJ nights.
This time around, the ’80s Dance Party starts at 9pm on Saturday, January 7th, with a $5 cover, and Nicky is planning to pay tribute to David Bowie, Prince, and George Michael throughout the night. All three died during 2016.
In addition to the ’80s Dance Party, Nicky was a morning DJ at WVBR for several years, and hosted the station’s Alternative ’80s Show on the weekend for a while.
