A little flooding over the weekend wasn't going to stop a party in Crosby.

Parts of Baytown and Crosby were under water late last week from flooding, including the bar Bob N Jeans. Video from inside the club Saturday night shows patrons dancing in ankle-deep water to the band called, appropriately enough, Pushwater.

As of Monday afternoon, the dancing video clip above had been shared more than 1,300 times.

Before the show, Pushwater posted to Facebook, saying that the show will go on, flooding or not, while showing the inside and outside of the club.

The band Pushwater posted this video to their Facebook page Saturday.

Front man Jesse Duke says they'd already driven from Jewett to Crosby by time they found out the bar had taken on water.

"By the time we got down there, I called the manager to ask how it was. She said it was flooded. I said we're gonna come take a look anyway. And when we got there, there were people dancing and playing pool and sitting at the bar drinking. That was at 6pm," Duke said.

And the dancing didn't stop.

"It was awesome," said Bob N Jeans employee Angie Rives. "That's why I did the video. Because I wanted everybody else to see how awesome it was to see everybody here, no matter water or whatever, having a good time dancing in the water."

We asked Jesse Duke if they were worried about the possibility that someone could get electrocuted.

"My father, who plays bass guitar for me, he's a pretty darn good electrician. And he noticed that all the breakers were GFCI, all the plugs were safe, they were four feet off the ground," he said. "I said, 'Dad is there any chance that anything could happen electrically?' He said no, they've actually engineered/retrofitted this building in a manner that would keep everyone safe. Once he told me that, we just went with it."

And they created one of the most memorable nights in the band and this building's history.
