Famous in Nashville as simply “The Monday Night Dance Party,” KEEP ON MOVIN! is the wildly successful weekly rock and soul dance party presented by ELECTRIC WESTERN. Now in their fourth year, DJs JACOB JONES and RENO BO spin a hand-selected mix of the most danceable popular and obscure 50’s and 60’s Rock and Roll, Soul, old school R&B, Stax, Motown, Girl Groups, Doo Wop, Funk and Garage every Monday night. Their slogan “Monday Is The New Friday” holds true each week as the masses converge upon the hip east Nashville neighborhood, pack into rock club The 5 Spot and ready themselves for an evening of dancing, drinking and fun. The drinks flow for hours and the sweat pours off the crowd.
KEEP ON MOVIN! was named “The most stylish party in America” in the April 2012 Style Bible issue of GQ Magazine. College kids, baby boomers and everyone in between understand why this party is THE party in town. The rhythmic sounds of Otis Redding, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Temptations, Aretha Franklin, Sly and the Family Stone, Buddy Holly, Sam Cooke, James Brown and more keep the crowds in dance hall bliss while the evening’s pied pipers Jones and Bo instigate and officiate the festivities.
Guest DJs have included Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys), Brendan Benson, Diane Birch, Eli “Paperboy” Reed and Greg Cartwright (Reigning Sound, Oblivians). Local and national celebrities like Ke$ha, Jared Followill (Kings Of Leon), Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs), James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins) Taylor Hanson (Hanson), Adam Schlesinger (Fountains Of Wayne), Mat Kearney and
legendary tailor and suit-maker to the stars Manuel have shown up to find out what all the fuss is about.
The faithful show up each week right at ten when the needle drops and stay until the bartenders scream “last call!” hoping to get the dancing masses out of the club so that they can go home for some much needed and well-deserved sleep. That is, until next Monday rolls around.
