Enchantment Under the Sea Reenactment

James / November 16th, 2010

At weregoingback.com’s Back to the Future celebration finale, they reenacted the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance at the Hollywood United Methodist Church (the original filming location!).ย Harry Waters Jr. (Marvin Berry from the movie) sings Earth Angel. AJ LoCascio plays guitar in the back right.

And here’s the recreation of Marty playing Johnny B. Goode.

Anyone have more pics/videos/blogs about the event? Send them along.

    This is so awesome. Once the 30th anniversary comes on Wednesday October 21st (Which I hope will happen), they should have most 2015 stuff and an old school photo shoot at the beginning of the clock tower with costumes.

    Can we just get it over with and make the remake with AJ Locascio already? As far as I’m concerned he is the new Marty McFly. It’s inevitable that they’ll make a remake, so they might as well do it with AJ.

    Something’s wrong with the space time continuum… it’s 1955 and everyone is filming with their cellphones?! ^^

    Ah, I didn’t realise that was AJ. It didn’t sound that much like Marty this time, but I suppose the sound quality is to blame. He’s a cool guy.

    That sounds like it must have been a blast for the people who were there. Because the only people who would show up are people that care and want to have fun at something like this. Looks like it was a blast too.

    As for AJ’s performance, I was rather impressed. Was that really him playing/singing or was he synching with a recording. There would be nothing wrong with that, since not everyone was made with all skill sets. I’m just curious. As for it not sounding like Micheal J. Fox, let’s remember that, at least, in my memory, he didn’t sing the Johnny B. Goode. Or else his voice changes a lot when he sings. Either way, everyone has their own way of performing, so I think it was more interesting for AJ to act out the physical stuff we all expected, but just perform the music as best he could, and not try and waste his effort sounding like someone else in that part.

    Very cool overall. Man. I love being a turt…I mean, I love BttF

    Yes that is actually me playing and singing. It was obviously not meant to sound like Marty. In the movie the singer sounded nothing like Michale J. Fox.

    Here’s a higher quality video on Vimeo:

    Their guitarist could have dressed more appropriately for the role, like most of the others. The torn jeans and sleeveless shirt don’t even match the part of the 80s that Marty was from, at least in American suburbs.
