What a great night, with great company and good drinks (by Templeton Rye- an Iowa staple). The Gold Star Soul Revue Band dazzled everyone- feet were moving and skirts were twirling! The Golden Girls, who sang along with with Quinn DeVeaux and Dusty Stax (Marc Dantona) stole the show with their rocking voices, ocean-y dresses and vintage beauty. Thao Nguyen- of Thao and the Get Down Stay Down made an appearance to sing with the band. I was bummed I missed this, but I had to step out for a meal. It was a long day of decorating the Verdi Club. Naturally, after we put the scissors down and the scissors away, we toasted to a hard day’s work. I had a lot of fun capturing what Marc and I described as “Back to the Future meets Under the Sea”. Guests were snapping photos of the jellies and posting on Instagram – truly a great compliment. I am really looking forward to the next Dusty Stax formal this winter. Photos by Isla Bell Murray.
