Amy, Pham Tuan Ngoc, Minh Tri, Hong An, Giong Hong Ngoc, and Diem Suong gathered at the Seneca Events Center in Niagara Falls for a holiday dance show.

Amy

The end of November is a time for giving thanks in the United States. Thanksgiving is typically celebrated by eating far too much food including turkey, watching football on the television, falling asleep on the sofa, and shopping for big deals.

But on the night before Thanksgiving – November 25 – members of the Vietnamese community from Rochester, Toronto, and Buffalo gathered at the Events Center in the Seneca Niagara Resort and Casino for a celebration of music and dance.

After the house band got the music started, Toronto's Amy performed a three song set that included “I Hate Myself for Loving You” by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band Joan Jett and the Blackhearts in English.

Hong An

Hong An took the stage next for a three song set of rock, techno, and Latin (Cha Cha Cha) songs. Hong took the stage for his set, but took it a little further when he jumped off the stage on to the dance floor for a song. He posed for a number of photos with fans as he sang.

Pham Tuan Ngoc

Next up was Pham Tuan Ngoc who also sang a song in English during the night with the theme song from “Robin Hood” with Kevin Costner - “Everything I Do, I Do for You” by Bryan Adams. Pham's set included a Bossa Nova styled song and techno music. He also took to the dance floor for a song where he was surrounded by fans.

Diem Suong

After performing a Latin tune for the fans to dance a little Cha Cha Cha, Diem Suong slowed things down a little before getting the crowd on their feet for a couple of techno numbers.

Minh Tri

Like the guys before him, Minh Tri also performed a song on the dance floor performing some techno music. Minh went back to the early days of rock and roll when he performed the Neil Sedaka hit “Oh Carol”.

Giong Hong Ngoc

Finishing out the night was Giong Hong Ngoc slowed things down a bit with her techno set. The night of music and dance ended with Pham Tuan Ngoc joining Giong Hong Ngoc on stage for a duet.

While the audience was almost exclusively members of the Vietnamese community with the music sung in Vietnamese; the performers proved that even for those who did not understand the words, the music crossed the language barrier for two hours of good music and fun on the dance floor.
