'Brady Bunch' reunion: World's Largest Disco announces celebrity guests

Finally, a Brady (or four) that Buffalo will welcome with open arms.

The World's Largest Disco founder Dave Pietrowski announced that four of the actors who starred in "The Brady Bunch" will headline a lengthy list of celebrity guests for the 2018 event, which sold out long before the Nov. 24 party in the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center.

Barry Williams, Chris Knight, Mike Lookinland and Susan Olsen, who played Greg, Peter, Bobby and Cindy Brady, respectively, on the classic ABC show, took in a Buffalo Sabres game yesterday afternoon before their scheduled appearances at the 25th anniversary of the disco. The foursome will be joined by Fake Jan, played by Geri Reischl, who replaced Jan Brady in "The Brady Bunch Variety Hour."

Other celebrities in Buffalo include Lisa Whelchel, who played Blair Warner on "The Facts of Life"; Loni Anderson, who played Jennifer Marlowe on "WKRP Cincinnati"; Howard Hesseman, who played rock-loving deejay Dr. Johnny Fever on the same show; Deney Terrio of early '80s TV show "Dance Fever" and John Travolta's dance instructor for "Saturday Night Fever."
