On Saturday, July 5th, The Duchess presents the third installment of her very popular RETRO dance parties at the Artful Dodger. The Hop has quickly become a popular favourite for the young and old. Grab your dancing shoes, put on your party dress, comb your hair back and let’s pay homage to the past!
Ladies - we're talking poodle skirts, bobby socks, beehives, boleros, scarves round’ necks, crinolins, 2 inch patent letters, pencil skirts, baby doll dresses and pedals that push.
Gents - slap on that flat cap and argyle sweater. Slick your hair back, tuck your shirt in. Pleated, chino trousers. Boots and skinny blazers. Thin ties. Winkle pickers.
The Hop features 50's and 60's music from DJs:
THE DUCHESS |
The Duchess likes to pretend it's 1955 or 1967. Sometimes she'll write plays about that and perform them and other times she'll throw dance parties, so she can briefly pretend she is her Mom as a teenager. The Duchess grew up listening to CHAB radio and knows the words to every song by The Shangri-Las. And, she has a VERY IMPRESSIVE dress collection.
KIDD REGINA |
With his genuine authenticity, Kidd Regina will make you shake, rattle and roll with his special collection of dusty, vintage 45’s and LPs. He’ll be spinning up a storm of classic rock n’ roll, rock-a-billy and doo-wop!

Danny Oliver is no rookie to the Regina music scene. As lead singer for one of Regina's favourite indie pop acts, Fly Points, Danny gained a lot of well deserved attention for his vocal chops. Now he has released a solo album, which is perhaps one of the finest albums a Regina musician has released in a long.
