THOMASTON — Watts Hall Community Arts kicks off the new year and keeps the winter blues at bay with a reprisal of last fall’s popular Dance Party featuring the Watts Hall Band Saturday, Jan. 14, at Watts Hall, 174 Main St.

The 10-piece, vocally driven Watts Hall Band boasts a full horn section, keyboards, saxophones and guitars. The group’s catalog of rock, blues and R&B favorites is guaranteed to turn listeners into dancers.

The high-energy rock ‘n roll dance party runs from 7 to 9:30 p.m. A cash bar by The Block Saloon and a selection of concessions by donation will keep attendees fueled for a great night of dancing.

Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Advance tickets can be purchased at

In the event of inclement weather, the dance party will be held Saturday, Jan. 21. Updates will be posted to the Watts Hall Community Arts Facebook page, found at
