Music As You Like It 50th Anniversary

Music As You Like It is celebrating its 50th anniversary! Keith Danon has been interested in music and entertainment since  he was a youth and a magician growing up in Pasadena, California. He was intrigued by the old "Sock Hops" which started in the early 40's providing funds for World War 2. In the late 40's, they discarded their socks in the gymnasiums scuffing up the wooden floors. In the 50's "Sock Hops" evolved with 2 turntables, larger speakers, lighting, and a disc jockey making announcements to the kids. In 1957, the nationwide hit "At the Hop" by Danny and the Juniors further created interest in this new fad. Keith graduated from SDSU with honors in the 1970's and became youth director for Admiral Hartman, a naval housing facility. After booking Shotgun Tom Kelly from B100FM for a dance, Shotgun bowed out with an illness leaving Keith with the microphone and records to play. At that time, he started his entertainment career. In 1983 he decided to start his own talent agency booking 100's of different types of acts for corporate events, weddings, the military, and a host of other clients. These days Music As you Like It has produced over 27,000 events around the country. Using his creativity, he strives to make each event special. A member of the Ocean Beach Community for 51 years, he has seen the changes in both Ocean Beach and the entertainment world. A  member of the OBMA for years, he continues "Selling Fun" around the country.
