Ever dream of singing your favorite '70s song, backed up by a band or an orchestra? Have you been longing to dedicate a song from the '70s, played live, to your best gal or guy? How about accompanying or dancing to your fave song from the '70s, played by a band or an orchestra—or both?
Now, by making a donation to a worthy cause, you can realize your dream.
Who can forget the music of the '70s? You remember—Led Zeppelin, Dire Straits, ELO, solo McCartney or Lennon, Crosby, Still & Nash, the Bee Gees, Fleetwood Mac, Donna Summer, Elton John, and even Disco.
The Hanover Wind Symphony and the You Choose Band will team up to present a fun-filled "Rock 'N' Winds '70s Night" family concert. And you can choose to have your favorite tune played by either the 70-piece Hanover Wind Symphony or the 10-piece You Choose Band, or both.
The event will benefit Area 3 Special Olympics, serving Morris, Sussex and Warren counties, as well as the Hanover Wind Symphony. Both are non-profit organizations that serve the local community.

A family-friendly event, the Rock 'N' Winds '70s Night will include a special area for children to play that's visible so parents can watch their kids and still enjoy the music. Before the concert, there will be a tailgate party outside the venue (weather permitting).
For a special "Be a Macho Man for the Special Olympics" promotion that night, you can dress up as one of your favorite members of the Village People band (the Cowboy, the Cop, the Native American, the Construction Worker, the Biker, or the Sailor), and strut your stuff while the You Choose Band plays "Macho Man."
