On New Year’s Eve, a packed Bush Hall played host to DJs The Sheen Resistance and outrageous dance act Hot Heels, as 2018 was ushered in with a night of classic 70s and 80s disco.
Lost In Disco, the name of the night, has been a huge hit throughout 2017 with a series of sold-out events. Longtime disco fans, The Sheen Resistance have turned their love of the ultimate party music into a hugely enjoyable spectacle. With a playlist including the likes of Earth, Wind & Fire, Evelyn Champagne King, Diana Ross and Chaka Kan, visuals incorporating drag performers, glitter makeup artists, swathes of trashy animal print drapes and gold lamé, Lost In Disco is a celebration of both disco’s euphoric best and it’s kitschiest. Audiences have clearly come back round to appreciating disco’s many strengths and it’s probably no coincidence that one of the genre’s enduring supergroups, Chic led by Nile Rodgers, were also headlining a major event a short ride away at precisely the same time.
With the emphasis on party rather than club night, Lost In Disco is proudly catering to all age groups – from those in their early twenties, to those who danced to the tunes first time round. The common link is a love for classic dance music, and an inclusive, friendly party atmosphere, which is provided in spades. Many of the partygoers dress in keeping with the theme, and it’s an event where friendships have been made and revived.
The Lost In Disco events are continuing into 2018 at Bush Hall, with a trip to Brighton’s funky Hotel Pelirocco in mid January for an exclusive, small scale night. The next event at Bush Hall is on February 10th, when The Sheen Resistance will be joined as a special guest by the wonderful DJ Anna Greenwood, and then later in the Spring by long-time Ibiza star, and Boogie In Wonderland resident Sarah Main.
