Official "NAME"
Did you know that our OFFICIAL name is simply
"OLD SCHOOL SATURDAY"® ???
(no other words included---big smile)

Please help us by CORRECTING YOUR FRIENDS if they make the simple error of calling our event "1st Sat" or "2nd Sat" or any other variation. This will help them to be accurate...and it will help them to AVOID MISSING OUR EVNTS (because they "think" it is scheduled on a specific day of the month---LOL).

In fact, we actually have a United States Federal Trademark registered as:
"Old School Saturday"®
(yep, we're THAT serious--smile).
Scheduling
Did you know we may schedule an OSS event for "ANY Saturday" of the month---not just on a specific Saturday? Yes, yes, yessssss.... our events may be scheduled on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th Saturday (it may change month-to-month).
Our event is simply called "Old School Saturday"
(not O.S. "First Sat, Second Sat, Third Sat"----LOL).
The best way to KNOW WHEN the next event is scheduled is to join our e-list and/or visit our website often (smile).
80s and 90s Music
We FOCUS PRIMARILY on 1980s & 1990s music at our immensely popular OSS Events. We respect & love music from all eras , but we can't be all things to all people...hence, we focus on those TWO decades. If you are looking for music from TODAY'S era, we are NOT the event for you. Likewise, if you are looking for music from the 70s or 60s, we are NOT the event for you either (big smile). Thanks for helping to spread the word, clear up confusion, and prevent the disappointment of some patrons that may have other "expectations." We simply want people to know that we are all about THE 1980s and 1990S...so they know what to expect at OSS. :)
