UMPI presents Motor Booty Affair during Homecoming 2010

Tuesday, 31 August 2010

The University of Maine at Presque Isle is pleased to present famed interactive retro band Motor Booty Affair during its Homecoming 2010 festivities on Saturday, Sept. 18 at 8:30 p.m. in Wieden Gymnasium. Campus and community members are invited to attend this concert.

Motor Booty Affair, dubbed "The Ultimate Disco Party Band," delivers 1970's dance floor classics with flair – complete with afros, bell bottoms, platform shoes and lots of polyester. The band consists of four "funkateers straight from the Planet Funktar" – Superfly, Spanish Fly, Sir Rumpus Funkberry and Cyclone Link Skywalker Jr. – who will perform hits by Earth Wind & Fire, The Bee Gees, KC & the Sunshine Band, Chic, The Commodores, Barry White, Abba and more.

"We are so pleased to be able to present Motor Booty Affair to our campus and the community during our Homecoming 2010 festivities," Keith Madore, Director of Alumni Relations, said. "They're going to get the crowd moving with their music and keep them completely entertained with their 70's lingo and stage antics. This is a real crowd-pleaser of a show and we invite one and all to come out for this special evening."

Motor Booty Affair has performed throughout New England, and was most recently in Fort Fairfield this summer performing for nearly 2,000 spectators during the Maine Potato Blossom Festival. For more information about the group, visit www.motorbootyaffair.com.

There will be a beer garden at this event (no admittance without proper ID). Door opens at 7:15 p.m. For more information, please call 768-9568. Proceeds will benefit the UMPI Alumni Scholarship Fund.
