Hoosier Bandstand
Let the IU School of Medicine Alumni Association take you back to a time when Dick Clark ushered rock ’n roll into your home and taught you the steps to the latest dance craze.

Whether you fancied Elvis, The Jackson 5, or ABBA (your secret’s safe), American Bandstand entertained and informed.
On Friday, May 19 nationally known impersonator John Di Domenico comes back to Indianapolis by way of Vegas to serve as host “Dick Clark” of the second annual Hoosier Bandstand. The Band Etc. will play the best tunes from the ‘50s through the ‘90s.

Come together with all who love the IU School of Medicine for a light-hearted evening of music, laughs, and nostalgia.
