Highlights from the Village People's live show
In their 35-year history, disco legends Village People have delighted worldwide audiences with high-energy dance tunes, iconic costumes, and signature choreography, all of which helped the group earn a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and sell more than 100 million albums. Still touring internationally, the troupe of six men dress to represent various American personas, including the original Native American, construction worker, and soldier, as well as new performers taking on the biker, cop, and less rambunctious Wall Street power broker. The band serves up audience favorites such as "In the Navy" and "Can’t Stop the Music" before showcasing its crown jewel, "Y.M.C.A.," which earned a spot in the _Guinness Book of World Records_ when 40,000 fans simultaneously performed the dance at the 2008 Sun Bowl. The song, a staple at weddings, bar mitzvahs, and Freemason meetings, encapsulates the band’s signature blend of celebratory lyrics, carefree choreography, and ample crowd interaction.
Bergen Performing Arts Center
In 2004—on a mission to bolster its community’s wellspring of creativity and education—the nonprofit Bergen Performing Arts Center took over the former John Harms Center, an art-deco-style movie and vaudeville palace built in 1922. Today, in the same antique theater where Frank Capra screened his first car chase, the venue hosts 150 yearly events that bring dance, music, and theatrical productions to an estimated 250,000 annual audience members. Networks such as HBO, PBS, and MTV all have filmed international broadcasts on the stage, which has seen the likes of Diana Krall, Heart, and ZZ Top.
