Do you remember...
You know, the Fifties was just the beginning of Rock and Roll. When Bill Haley's "Rock Around The Clock" became popular, the nation learned to swing to a whole new sound and move to a whole new groove.
The music was known as Rock n Roll and every teen around was dying to get on American Bandstand!
This is such a fun party idea that parents might want to get in on the action as well!
