Entertainment, live music to return Friday at former hot spot

It’s been a while since the former floor of Nicholasville’s former City Limits club has been a dance floor. This Friday evening will be the first sock hop in changing that string of weekend silence.

Event organizers Teg Evans and Wm Scott Collins are promoting a dance party to music from the 50s-70s on Sept. 22. Tickets for the event are $5 per person. Live entertainment will consist of Collins and his One Man Rock and Roll Band, as well as Jacky Waldrop and special surprise guests.

The shakin’, boppin’ and twistin’ the night away will begin at 7 p.m. at the 106 Courchelle Drive club. Dressing up for the event in period-accurate attire is encouraged, with prizes to be won for best dressed and best dancer.

According to Evans, this is only the first entertainment outing in the works for the building before the end of the year. He also said that the building will be available for select events for churches, businesses or organizations.

“It’s our hope to see it become more and more active,” Evans said. “It’s got a great service kitchen and all of the things that we need to really make it a pretty cool venue for a lot of things.”

Evans said that thirty-five years ago, City Limits was a popular gathering place for people to gather, dance and play miniature golf. He said that craft shows and car shows were also popular attractions held on site.

“Everything we do there will be kid-friendly and family-oriented,” Evans said. “It’s a family place.”
