Now performing as Oingo Boingo Dance Party, former Oingo Boingo members Johnny Vatos, Steve Bartek, John Avila, Sam “Sluggo” Phipps, Carl Graves and Doug Lacy, along with a host of other wildly-talented musicians.
Per an email from Midsummer Scream:
We’re proud to announce that our Saturday night costume party will be headlined by members of the band synonymous with Halloween in Southern California: Oingo Boingo! Now performing as Oingo Boingo Dance Party, the group will play favorites such as “Dead Man’s Party”, “Weird Science,” “Only A Lad,” and “No One Lives Forever.”
The 21+ party will also feature a Best and Worst of the ’80s Costume Contest, with prizes awarded for those portraying ’80s styles, pop and horror icons, or anyone else from the decade. Additional prizes will be awarded for categories including “most frightening costume” and “best horror themed cosplay.”
“Oingo Boingo was synonymous with Halloween here in Southern California in the ‘80s and ‘90s,” said Rick West, Creative Director of Midsummer Scream. “What better way to launch our event than a concert featuring these legendary performers doing what they do best as Oingo Boingo Dance Party? To me, bringing these musicians and the haunt and horror community together under one roof is a no-brainer. They’re going to bring the house down!”
Midsummer Scream also announced a special meet and greet package for fans available for purchase on their website.
“For the ultimate Boingo fans in attendance, a limited amount of Tender Lumpling Experience passes are now available for purchase, which offers admission to the Noche de los Muertos party, as well as a personal meet-and-greet opportunity with the band that includes photos and autograph signing prior to the concert.”
With the addition of Oingo Boingo, Midsummer Scream is putting together an incredibly impressive event for the fans! The team here at All Hallows’ Haunts can’t wait for July!
