MMC Rocked the House 20 Years Ago!

So today marks the 20 year anniversary of the retooled The Mickey Mouse Club, commonly referred to as the MMC, on The Disney Channel.

Daddycatcher would spend the afternoons glued to the television screens as the variety show introduced him to future stars: Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Ryan Gosling, Keri Russell, Christina Aguilera, and JC Chasez.

However, what Daddycatcher remembers the most is the band, THE PARTY, that was comprised of 5 of the original MMCers: Damon Pampolina, Tiffini Hale, Chase Hampton, Albert Fields and Deedee Magno.  Daddycatcher wore out their cassette tapes.  Yikes, cassette tapes!

He also remembers crushing on ringleader Tony Lucca, who’s now an indie musician.

After the MMC ended, he starred with Keri Russell on the short-lived teen Aaron Spelling drama Malibu Shores.   He played a boy from the wrong side of the tracks who falls in love with a rich girl.  It’s a tale as old as time.
