There are a lot of things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving season but this November our Sing-Along crew is most thankful for BOY BANDS! They’ve provided us with classic summer jams, heart breaking ballads, crying teenage girls, hopeless crushes, Justin Timberlake and plenty of laughs. Join us the day after Thanksgiving and work off some of those calories with our awesome selection of music videos from the 80’s to today (but mostly from the 90’s and early 00’s)

with all with the words on the screen so you and your friends can sing and dance along.

Featuring subtitled music videos from *NSYNC, New Kids on the Block, Boyz II Men, Backstreet Boys, One Direction, New Edition, All-4-One, Hanson, 2gether and more Boy Bands you know and love (or love to hate). We might even throw in some Justin Timberlake solo hits because we love him so much. Whether you were at their concerts screaming along with thousands or in your car alone secretly singing along to “Bye Bye Bye” when no one was looking you’re invited to come and sing your heart out. We promise no one will judge you because they’ll be to busy singing and dancing too!

-Dress as your favorite boy band member or boy band archetype (like the Bad Boy or the Cute One) for the Costume Contest!

-Practice those pop and lock dance moves for the Dance Off!

-Enjoy themed drinks like the “No Strings Attached”, “Step by Step”, “Motownphilly” and more!
