Party Tonight is a compilation album released by multi-hit Salsa and pop music group Modern Romance on the Ronco label. It was out in shops - on vinyl and cassette tape - ready for Christmas 1983 and showcased their biggest hits. It further offered some album tracks and cover versions. Party Tonight reached #45 on the UK Albums Chart, wrapping up what had been the band's watershed year; it is their highest charting album in the UK to date. The album was produced by Tony Visconti and featured tracks from their two previous studio albums - Adventures in Clubland (1982) and Trick of the Light (1983) - and featured its sister single, "Good Friday", released simultaneously. Party Tonight and Good Friday share the same cover photo.
The album features both lead vocalists - Geoff Deane (1980–82) and Michael J. Mullins (1982–1985) - and was released in Germany by WEA and in Japan (under the title Juanita). The signature trumpets and horns by band member - and conductor-composer - John Du Prez are evident throughout.
