70’s soul (not glittery disco but would be acceptable since we’re on stage)
From the costume director (costume and dance ideas link):
“I would say more street. Like similar to soul train, 70s casual. Funky, but not too glitzy. If some glitz makes it in there, that’s fine.. Enclosing a video.”

Bellow are a few things I pulled out of our costume closet that you’re welcome to try on (just schedule a time with me). We also have “Northwest Costume” down the street to rent or buy things as well as “Scorpio Rising” a block away (I will have a costume budget for you 🙂 ). Can stick with 1 costume or have multiple costumes – up to you. Props can be used. Again, I’ll get to firm even more up on Tues night at rehearsal with the band.
