Local legend Johnny’s Dance Band will be playing Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope for one perfomance only on Saturday, Jan. 25 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $15 and available online.

According to the Playhouse, “The original Johnny’s Dance Band reigned supreme in the Philadelphia tri-state area, from the mid- to late-seventies. They had 3 albums on RCA/Windsong, and even set some local records. They were the only unrecorded, unsigned act to ever play the 19,000 seat Spectrum … simply due to local popularity. A concert on flatbed trucks at then dirt lots of Penn’s Landing drew 25,000 loyal JDB fans. In their hey-day, they were quite simply the biggest local draw anywhere around the City of Brotherly love. After a long hiatus, they re-incarnated in January 2013.

“But, what the band calls “Rock ‘n Roll Vaudeville” was always their strength: original music & satire, with a strong dose of good old-fashioned cabaret schtick. Their unique on-stage performances were largely developed through long residencies at local clubs, such as John & Peter’s in New Hope, and the former Grendel’s Lair on Philly’s South Street”JDB
