Canceled - Village People to rock Sacramento State’s Alumni Month - Canceled

The Village People

The Village People

Iconic disco group The Village People—featuring Sacramento State alum David Hodo—will bring the “YMCA” to the University Union Ballroom at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, April 6 as part of Alumni Month activities on campus.

As part of The Village People, Hodo made music history during the 1970s with the performers’ campy but respected take on diverse stereotypes. He has portrayed The Village People’s “construction worker” since the group’s 1977 inception in New York’s Greenwich Village.

Hodo graduated from Sacramento State in 1969 with a bachelor’s degree in speech. His appearance is one of many Alumni Month events in April which recognize Sacramento State alumni and their achievements.

With hits like “Macho Man” and “In the Navy,” The Village People have sold millions of recordings and still perform all over the world today. The group remains strong here and abroad, having recently performed during Cher’s farewell tour in 2004, and in Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, Mexico and Portugal. Their worldwide popularity was in evidence during the closing ceremony of the Torino Olympics when athletes and spectators “spelled along” when the group’s “YMCA” was played.

Tickets are $30 general, $25 for Sacramento State Alumni Association members and $20 for Sacramento State students. They are available from the Sacramento State Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or

Media assistance is available by contacting the Sacramento State public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
