Talking about music is like dancing about architecture, unless you’re getting down to the timeless Tudor Revival polka. Pick up streamlined moves with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $7, you get one general-admission ticket to the 2011 Summer Dance Party featuring Mercy Me! (Band), presented by Bistro 33 El Dorado, on Saturday, July 16 (a $15 value). The show takes place at the Steven Young Amphitheater at the El Dorado Hills Town Center. Doors open at 7 p.m.; the show begins at 8 p.m.
Hosted by the upscale Bistro 33 El Dorado, the 2011 Summer Dance Party shuffles feet with musical stylings by Sacramento’s shindig-stirring tunesmiths Mercy Me! (Band). A cover band that weaves R & B into an already high thread count of funk, Mercy Me! (Band) instigates good-vibe pandemics and awakens dormant electric slides with unforgotten favorites from the sensorial spectrum of Marvin Gaye, The Jackson 5, James Brown, and Sly and the Family Stone. Amphitheater space allows for open-air grooving and long-distance slap-bracelet attempts. Dancers can warm up before the show and take in Bistro 33 El Dorado's full food and drink menu, which sates grumbling tummies with a selection of soups, paninis, and upscale bistro fare. Or, parched pipes can grab a beverage at the amphitheater (this Groupon is not valid for food or drinks).
