Baby boomers still feeling forever young

A Winnipeg baby boomer who still enjoys rocking out to the sounds of Buddy Holly and The Beatles says there’s room on the dance floor for more fleet-footed folk like him.
Bob Sidof, 56, is president of the Forever Young Club — a group of individuals from all walks of life fused together by a love of old rock ’n’ roll music and friendship.
To illustrate this point, the club’s motto is: ‘You don’t stop playing when you get old. You get old when you stop playing.’
The topic of eternal youth will be on the playlist when the club holds its upcoming 14th Annual Dance on April 9.
The event will be held at the Masonic Temple at 420 Corydon Ave., at Confusion Corner and will feature performances by The Tune Raiders and Specialty Music — a.k.a. DJ Ray Wheeler.
On the night, there will also be food, a silent auction, 50/50 draws and the club will be collecting for Winnipeg Harvest’s Bring a Tin for the Bin campaign.
“We’re hoping that about 300 people will turn out, as it’s our big fundraiser” said Sidof, service manager at an automotive shop, whose wife Deanna is also dancer.
So why, after all these years and changing musical tastes, is the club — founded in 1997 by Barry Green and a few friends at the 215th Royal Canadian Legion in East St. Paul — still going strong?
“Many of our members still like to enjoy the music of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. Our membership is changing all the time, with a few younger ones coming in, but there’s still a lot of baby boomers,” Sidof said.
“I think that music is timeless to our generation, because it’s goes back to our teenage years and great memories and associations and our very own The Guess Who and things like that.”
“Plus, I guess we’ve got to survive the cold weather for five long months, so we’ve got to party. Also, it’s about the social connection and harks back to all those teen dances at community centres and live bands,” he added.
Sidof said dress code for the upcoming dance is optional, although some folk do dress up in period gear, which includes poodle skirts for the women and black leather jackets and white T-shirts for the men.
Tickets for the dance cost $20 per person. For more information, call 261-4442 or email email@example.com.
