Steve Scott (Captain Hooch) is the Strut the Hooch Creator & Coordinator.
“It is one half hour of bizarre, fun and silliness to do anything you want to do…family-style,” says Scott.
Scott says he came up with the idea to bring people together.
“There is so much meanness and sorrow in the world. I wanted to carve out just 30 minutes where we could all celebrate our differences and encourage each other. Forget about the troubles of the world for just half an hour,” adds Scott.
