Johnny Hoy and the Bluefish tear up the dancefloor in Chilmark

The Yard’s “Public Dancing Allowed!!!” event draws dancers to Chilmark Community Center.


The Chilmark Community Center was alight on Friday night when Johnny Hoy and the Bluefish took to the stage for a performance organized by the Yard. The show, subtitled “Public Dancing Allowed!!!”, drew a sizable crowd who turned out and turned up to support the Yard and its programming.

“You don’t get the chance to dance to Johnny in the ballroom that often,” Kevin Boreri, a long time Johnny Hoy fan who recently moved to the Vineyard full time, said.

Mr. Boreri, and many others, were excited by the opportunity to shake, wiggle, and groove on the dance floor and took full advantage of the open space. The Bluefish played a rip roaring set that had people stomping, spinning, twirling and laughing through the winter night.
