80's night club reunion

Okay...everyone...freak out! We are a week away from getting into the groove at the 80's Nightclub Reunion! Grab your sunnies and meet us at the dance floor as we boogie our butts off to the sound of 80s Disco Funk New Wave Synth n Pop.

The Solid Gold Dancers are ready to give the time of your life . . . again. Remember, its this Sat 23 March at 7pm at H Lounge (upstairs Hamilton Hotel).

TO PLAY OR NOT TO PLAY MICHAEL JACKSON at this Saturday's 80s? This has been the question that has 80s Nightclub Reunion director, promoter & Dj in a spin after posting a message on social media that regardless of the International debate Dj Les-Boss will play Michael Jackson.
Saturday's 80s Nightclub Reunion is themed Legends of the Mirror and is a tribute to the great dance and disco music of the Eighties and also a time to reminisce the great days of Brisbane's grand nightclubs of the 80s, Sybils, Images, Transformers, The Underground, Club Rumours and so many more.
Dj Les-Boss who will play a 2 hour set of the great 80s Disco, Funk, Pop & New Wave asked if he should play a list of Michael Jackson songs, especially when the 80s is where Michael Jackson made his mark. Dj Parry James of 80s Clubs The Underground, Stratus and Tracks Nightclubs stated he would not be playing Michael Jackson, as he has always done so in the past.
Dj Les-Boss & Sarina Catalano who started the 80s Nightclub Reunion 5 years ago, designed this night to bring together the people and community that were like second family in the clubs of the 80s and playing the music of their formative years.
Doors open at 7pm and the 2 hours disco show from 9.30pm with Dj Les-Boss which includes Brisbane's own 80s Solid Gold Dancers will read the audience before dropping some of the biggest dance floor tracks of Michael Jackson. Dj Les-Boss says it will be tempting to want to play his music and also does not want to be disrespectful towards the fans that have supported the event and to also provide the fans that do want the MJ songs to be happy with whichever decision he chooses.

Dress: 80s Superstars & Sunglasses at Night. If you still haven't gotten your tickets, grab 'em now!
