The First Friday Art Walk will feature Retro Sounds, a music and art event, in downtown Ocala Friday, March 5, from 6 to 9 p.m. This year’s Retro Sounds event will celebrate the disco era of the 1970’s with a performance by Bee Gees tribute artists, Bee Gees NOW.
A band fueled by a moment in time during the disco era, the Bee Gees have become a timeless classic brand of American pop music. The Bee Gees were formed in 1958 by brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb. The movie “Saturday Night Fever” with John Travolta brought the band to the musical forefront in the 1970s with hits like “You Should Be Dancing,” “Stayin Alive” and “Night Fever.” Playing those hits and more, tribute band Bee Gees Now, brings that ’70s dance fever to downtown Ocala.
Attendees will enjoy activities with a 1970s twist such as local arts organizations providing free, hands-on art activities; visual artists working live throughout downtown; special sales at participating restaurants and extended business hours at local shops. In addition, a vintage car exhibit by the Ocala Street Cruisers will be displayed on the east side of the downtown square.
