1972…a Sha Na Na concert and a backyard summer party was where it started. The next, and supposedly final goal, was to impress choir director, Lindley Hall, enough to let them perform in the Brush Vocal Music Fall Concert. They auditioned, Mr. Hall smiled and a phenomenon was born.
The Fabulous Blue Moons, all mid-70's Brush grads, performed often during the subsequent 33 years. However, as these 17 year olds found themselves turning 50, it became more and more difficult for the group to coordinate their schedules to accommodate performances and so, in 2005, The Fabulous Blue Moons took their final curtain call.
In April, 2005 approximately 625 people crammed Normandy Party Center for their “Farewell Tour”, proceeds of which was donated to the Brush Vocal Music Boosters.
The hall was too crowded, the tables were too full…and no one cared. There wasn’t room to move on the dance floor…and no one cared. All anyone cared about was being together and celebrating the end of an Era. And through the tears and tributes that endings bring, everyone was grateful to be a part of one last time, one final show…UNTIL NOW!
The Moons will rise again in the sky on Saturday, July 4, 2015 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. as they rock the community at Legacy Village. This is a reunion you won’t want to miss! Hope to see you there!
