BB&T’s Party in the Park is a weekly dance party located in Elmwood Park in downtown Roanoke, VA. The concerts take place each Thursday night during the summer. The company who hosts the shows, Event Zone, normally books Carolina beach and dance music bands for this series. However, this year they’re attempting to expand the audience by introducing a number of "themed nights". This listing is specifically for their 70s themed dance night. This night is scheduled for either June 25, or July 2, 2009.

Event Zone is accepting submissions for any artists in the 70's dance music vein (e.g. disco, soul, motown, rock, etc.) and a show band with costumes would be ideal. The selected band will be compensated up to $3,000.

Two 1 hours sets are required; 6:00-7:00pm and 7:30-8:30pm. Soft beverages are provided to band. Lights and sound will be provided. There is no backline. Attendees are typically 40+ years of age, and average attendance is around 1,200.
