Travel back in time to the Sansei Dance Party Era in Los Angeles during the ’60s and ’70s through live music and storytelling! Written and produced by Harry Manaka, author of Chronicles of a Sansei Rocker, former owner of the Baby Lion Supper Club, and leader of Somethin’ Else, this immersive performance combines the classic tunes of the Sansei Dance Party Era with illuminating stories of the times. A love letter to the era and to all those involved—from the bands to the muscle cars to the hairspray—this premiere event should not be missed!
This show features John DePatie, Bobby Flores, Richie Gajate Garcia, Gerald Ishibashi, Royce Jones, Harry Manaka, Harold Payne, Charles Ruggiero, and Wayne Wakai playing hits from the dance floor and sharing stories of the bands, events, and music that shaped this unique moment.
