Yerba Buena Gardens Festival 2018 | SF

Disco fever wasn’t just an American epidemic. In the late 1970s, those lithe, funk-inflected bass lines, slinky keyboards and punchy horns spread around the globe, finding a particularly receptive audience in the Philippines. Manila Disco Fever celebrates the Manila Sound, a hugely popular movement that blossomed in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s with acts like VST & Company, Hotdog, Boyfriends, Hagibis, and Cinderella. MDF features special guests Spanky Rigor and Roger Rigor (original members of VST & Company) and is built around The Union, a dynamic show group with a five-piece rhythm section and five vocalists from various show bands of the ’80s (including Music & Magic’s Jet Montelibano and the New Minstrels’ Jessica Casas and Nino de Jesus, with Fulton Montoya and Joann Visitacion). Manila Disco Fever is that kind of concert that will simply make you get up on your feet and dance.
