ONE NIGHT AT THE DISCO
SATURDAY 11TH NOVEMBER 2017
10pm - 2am
SWG3 and Melting Pot are bringing the good people of Glasgow the opportunity to visit an era of pure decadence, excess, glamour and music that became the blue print for modern day dance music - One Night At the Disco!
Founded mainly in New York City, a phenomenon happened that changed music and nightclubs forever - from the underground bath houses hosted by Frankie Knuckles and the apartments parties held by David Mancuso at The Loft and Nicky Siano's Gallery parties, to the opulence of Studio 54 with it's regular celeb guests to the Paradise garage hosted by Larry Levan. They were the venues that were breaking the boundaries - DJs were now mixing records, gay and straight, rich and poor audiences were now mixing together and producers such as Walter Gibbons, Giorgio Moroder and Tom Moulton were making records now specifically for the dance floor.
Artists like Chaka Khan, Diana Ross, Gloria Gaynor, Chic, Sylvester and Donna Summer were taking over the world - it was a revolution.
The clubs were places of worship and that is what will be doing on the 11th November - we will take you to one night at the disco - the sound and lights and talent of an era that shaped where we are today.
