The Ugly Disco was held March 8, 2014 at the Riverside Convention Center in Rochester, New York. One of my Humber College buddies, Kevin Tierney, invited me to come down for a visit, and meet the musicians, and check out this gala evening. I had never been to Rochester, NY before, so I thought I would drive down and check it out. Kevin plays a fantastic trumpet and performs with numerous groups including the internationally known, “Skycoasters” band from Rochester. The “Skycoasters” have been performing together for over two decades and is the ultimate 9-piece party band. They have performed at numerous NFL Superbowl parties, summer olympics, New York Yankees parties as well as numerous festivals, clubs, weddings, and high-end corporate events.

This was the 11th annual 2014 Ugly Disco Bash that featured, “Something Else,” “Atlas Band,” “The Skycoasters,” and Toronto’s own “Disco Nation.”

The Ugly Disco seemed like what a “Studio 54,” party would be like – everybody having a great time, lots of disco-dancing, and lots of great “live” entertainment. All of the groups dressed the part of the disco 70’s era and also there were numerous costume changes throughout the night. The Skycoasters wore these amazing “lit up glow jackets”–very hip to the disco scene!!

The Skycoasters closed the night with numerous disco hits such as: “Disco Inferno,” “That’s The Way,” “Funky Music,” “Dancin’ Queen,” “Rock The Boat,” “Don’t Leave Me This Way,” “Funky Town,” “It’s Raining Men,” “I Will Survive,” and of course….Donna Summer’s famous ”Last Dance.”

Numerous cheers could be heard from an energetic, appreciative crowd of disco dancers – and all were in hip disco costumes enjoying the “party-of-the-year!! The Ugly Disco is held once every year. If you have the opportunity to go and see it, you will not be disappointed.
