The RRazz Room at the Raven will proudly present “Sing and Dance Out Loud and Proud” on April 2, featuring performances by two of the biggest acts of the Disco era —  The Grammy Award-winning Trammps, along with Cory “Cher Chez La Femme” Daye.

The Trammps were based out of Philadelphia and were an early disco phenomenon with their 1972 cover of  “Zing Went the Strings of My Heart.”

But they became legendary in the clubs for their Atlantic sound track “Disco Inferno.” In 1977, “Disco Inferno” was the hottest song in New York’s top dance clubs, including 2001 Space Odyssey, where “Saturday Night Fever” was filmed. The movie soundtrack featured “Disco Inferno,” and won the Trammps a Grammy Award in 1979.

Currently, the Trammps original members Robert Upchurch, Harold Doc Wade, Stanley Wade, Keith Elmore, and Van Fields, tour internationally with musicians from the original group.

Also in the spotlight on April 2 is the dazzling Cory Daye singing all her hits, including “Pow Wow” and “I’ll Play the Fool.”

Daye is best known for being the voice behind Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band, and her unique tone can be instantly recognized by many former disco denizens on the 1976 dance classic “Cher Chez La Femme.”

A native New Yorker, Daye was born in the Bronx, and ultimately went solo with her 1979 LP “Cory and Me.”

Tickets for the Saturday, April 2 disco extravaganza are $75, and available online. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.

The RRazz Room at the Raven is located at 385 W. Bridge St. in New Hope.
