Disco Donnie Presents and Virtuosos Entertainment are no strangers to drive-in music events in Houston (TX) and on June 20th the teams crushed the second edition of No Parking On The Dance Floor at the Showboat Drive-in theatre. The event series is centered around creating a safe place to enjoy live music that we all love during a time where we must remain socially distant.

If you aren’t familiar with drive-in music events, there are some modified rules due to the nature of the event type and/or location. If you were outside your vehicle, you were required to wear a face covering. You could remove your mask when eating or drinking, but it was highly encouraged to put the face covering back on even when around your own car squad. Disco Donnie Presents encouraged fans to practice a new definition of P.L.U.R.:

Practice social distancing.
Look out for each other. 
Use air hugs not real hugs.
Respect the rules and guidelines put in place.

While the stage had some speaker equipment, it was highly encouraged to tune in on your car’s FM radio and crank up the bass. Showboat Drive-in theatre did have another event at the same time in the other screening area, so there were limited concessions available. No Parking On The Dance Floor itself did not have concessions or vendors brought in, so the event was mainly BYOB for both food and beverage. Some attendees even brought their own rail to head bang in sync with the music played by the DJ’s

No Parking On The Dance Floor was Peekaboo‘s first show back and his energy on the stage was absolutely surreal. Not only was the set amazing, but the stage production (lights, visuals, AND lasers) was killer as well. Peekaboo was supported by Dirt Monkey and Spicy Bois Viskus and Cvptvgon, who also threw down some heavy hitting sets with bass that hit all the right places.

Showboat Drive-in was able to duplicate the stage’s visuals on the theatre’s screen, which created a great viewing experience no matter where you were parked. Parking spots were assigned as cars arrived, so the earlier you arrived the better the viewing spot. Some other social distancing music events have used parking lots for their shows, so being able to use a theatre screen at a drive-in venue is a huge advantage.

Overall, No Parking On The Dance Floor was pretty successful. Between the great lineup, festival-like production, and maintaining social distancing. Disco Donnie Presents and Virtuosos Entertainment cultivated a fun environment for enjoying live music while staying safe. Make sure to keep an eye out for future announcements as you do not want to miss out on the next drive-in style music event.
