Prom is a memorable night for those who got to go. In some cases, it is seen as an event that defines the rest of one’s life. There are some people who have regrets about prom for whatever reason : perhaps they didn’t (or couldn’t go), had no date, got kicked out, or it wasn’t memorable enough. Well, one band is looking to remedy those regrets with a very special event. Ladies and gentlemen, get ready for the Second Chance Prom presented by Rewind Party Band on Saturday, April 27! As the band is getting ready to play a gig at Salty Dog Sports Bar and Grill, Bohemia sat down with band spokesperson Jessica Gomez Seniceros to discuss sponsors, prom tickets, memorable prom moments, and even prom tips.
What led to the creation of this particular event?
Just an idea that Sotero had along with Dustin Drew (formerly of 92.9) a year or so ago. And since 92.9 switched to country, Sotero went ahead with the idea & decided to do it this year.
Based on what you said this is your 1st time doing the “Second Chance Prom”? And how are people responding to this event?
Yes, first time. If it is a success, we (Rewind Party Band) will host one every year. Right now, it’s just a one-time thing to see how it goes. A trial run. People are responding pretty positive to this event. A lot of good feedback. Many are looking forward to it simply because they didn’t attend their prom, had bad experiences with their prom, or they did have a good time and would like to relive that moment. It’s crazy because people think that prom means having a date but this one we got so many friends who are just coming as they are just to have a good time. They’re like “I had a date back then but this one I’m not. So, I’m gonna have more fun just by being by myself.” There’s different scenarios on why they’re going, but that’s why we tell them that they don’t need a date. Your night. Make it for you.
