70s Sarah turns 70 at 54

Sarah Dash will turn 70 on August 18th. She will be feted at a brunch at 54 Below, which is where I last saw her when she was part of Tracy Stark's tribute to Lesley Gore.

According to her press release:

54 BELOW, Broadway’s Supper Club will host Sarah Dash’s upcoming milestone birthday on Sunday, August 23, 2015 from 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM. This 70s Disco themed brunch is a play on words – the singer turns 70 this month (August 18th) and is perhaps best known as a powerful one third of the groundbreaking 70s group Labelle which was also comprised of Nona Hendryx and Patti LaBelle. 
Guests should expect a number of surprise appearances from a virtual “who’s who” from the world of music as well as a touching tribute from Tony-award winner and Grammy-nominated singer, Melba Moore. In addition, Alfa Anderson, Luci Martin and Norma Jean Wright, the magnificent lead vocalists on era-defining CHIC records “I Want Your Love”, “Everybody Dance”, “Le Freak” and “Good Times” are set to perform these classic hits as well as debut music from their hot new group Next Step. 

"The Sarah Dash Birthday Celebration: 70s Disco Brunch is a gift to Dash from her longtime supporters who have followed her from her start with Patti LaBelle & The Blue Belles which morphed into the unprecedented rock-soul-funk trio Labelle to a solo career filled with remarkable individual achievements. 

“I was blown away”, says Dash, “when a group of fans approached me with the Disco Brunch concept. They organized themselves, pooled their funds to secure the venue, and are literally throwing me a 70th birthday party.” “I don’t think there is a higher honor than to have people show their appreciation in such a way”, she concluded. “I am truly grateful.” 

Tickets to the 70s Disco Brunch hosted by 54 BELOW (254 West 54th Street/Manhattan) are available now at www.54Below.com. The cost of a ticket is $100 per person and includes a two-course brunch, a bottomless cocktail aptly named after Dash’s international solo hit “Sinner Man”, and once-in-a lifetime performances. With food, laughter, flowing cocktails and a dynamic show this event is not to be missed. 

For more information, call: (646) 476-3551.

I am so looking forward to celebrating Ms. Dash's birthday in high style as befits a diva of her stature. Could it be any more appropriate it's taking place under the old Studio 54? Special thanks to Marvin Johns.
