From a press release:

If you’d rather party like it’s 1999 than like it’s 2020, Saved by the 90s will meet you in the middle in Scranton.

Last night, Stage West in Scranton and DamnMillennial Promotions announced that they’re bringing this high-energy party band to the parking lot of Montage Mountain Waterpark (1000 Montage Mountain Rd., Scranton) for a “Sunday-Funday Tailgate” on Sunday, Aug. 9.

Gates open at 2 p.m., and the music runs from 4 p.m.-7 p.m. General admission tickets, which are $79 per car (maximum of four guests per vehicle), are on sale now via Prekindle. This is an all-ages, rain or shine event; guests who are 21+ must show ID to drink. For more details, visit the Facebook event page.

Inspired by your favorite musicians and hits of the decade, Saved by the 90s is a national sensation that is bringing back the ’90s with a huge interactive party by a live ’90s cover band that will blow your socks off. Dress up and dance the afternoon away.

With bands stationed all over the United States, Saved by the 90s puts on parties regularly at theaters and clubs where anybody can jump in and join the party. The bands also specialize in playing the best music at weddings, corporate parties, and other private events.

Saved by the 90s has many imitators, but don’t be fooled by the wannabes – Saved by the 90s is the highest-quality, longest-running ’90s party with live music on Earth. Plus, for the young millennials out there, there’s also a 2000s cover band – Y2K: the Millennium Party.
