About the event
Expect a stunning soundtrack, glass roofed venue with palm trees, dancers, balloons and a massive mirror ball as we say farewell to the summer with our disco all dayer.
DISCO - Founded in New York City in early 70’s, a phenomenon happened that changed music and nightclubs forever -
From the underground bath houses hosted by Frankie Knuckles, the apartment parties held by David Mancuso at The Loft, Nicky Siano's Gallery parties to the opulence of Studio 54.
Moving into the early 80’s the mutant disco coming out of New York's Paradise Garage hosted by Larry Levan.
As well as Frankie Knuckles at the Warehouse & Ron Hardy’s Music Box in Chicago influencing a whole new generation of clubbers with their eclectic mix of leftfield Disco .
Disco was about breaking the boundaries in music - DJs playing eclectic records to gay and straight, rich and poor. The audiences were now mixed together in one Disco Melting Pot.
With Producers such as Walter Gibbons, Giorgio Moroder and Tom Moulton making records now specifically for the dance floor. Artists like Chaka Khan, Prince, Diana Ross, Grace Jones, Gloria Gaynor, Chic, Sylvester and Donna Summer were taking the sound to the world - it was a revolution!
