The audience had thinned by the time  Rebel Angels brought the spirit of the ’50s  back for their last set of the night. The backdrop was silver lamé adorned with record and the entryway was adorned with pink and blue balloons.


 Frontman Ben Lamb showed his best ’50s moves as did the audience including the in the Pink Ladies in pink satin ’50s style  letter jackets, who remained to dance the night away to ’50s hits like “ Yakety Yak ” and “ the Great Pretender.”

 As usual Rebel Angels played an array of ’50s pop and, ballads and rock and roll like “ Twistin the Night Away,” and “ I Fought the Law.”


 Lamb wrapped his through around classic ear-worms like Neil Sedaka’ “ Calendar Girl.”


Everybody showing their best  dance moves including birthday boy Ben Lamb on. a popular hits of days gone bye like π the Isley brothers’ “ You Make me want to Shout.”


 They were called back for peppy encore of  “ Let’s Go to the Hop,” which had me singing the lyrics to Dash Rip Rock’s parody “ Let‘s go Smoke Some Pot.”
