The Sheen Resistance – how South West London gets its groove on
Created in a lab by scientists, from the pure essence of Donna Summer and Oliver Tobias, and incubated with the heat of lasers stolen from Studio 54. The Sheen Resistance hide out in their modernist mountaintop villa, watching old Persuaders episodes and Mario Bava movies, while plotting the liberation of occupied London with the power of disco.
The Sheen Resistance are Jason Regan and Andrew Burgess and since 2009, they have been on a mission to prove that classic disco never went away. With regular sold-out parties across West and South West London, they play infectious, groove-filled sets of 70s and 80s disco, dance and club classics, soul, funk and the occasional guilty pleasure.
Their Lost In Disco nights have been a huge success in the beautiful shabby-chic environment of West London’s Bush Hall, on the South Coast at Brighton’s boutique Hotel Pelirocco, and the riotous Mighty Hoopla festival.
Their corporate events have included the gala opening of The Design Museum in Kensington sponsored by Vogue. Playing either individually or back to back as a duo, occasionally augmented by special guests, their sets always have a feel-good, inclusive vibe for a mixed, good-natured crowd.
We never forget it’s a party – everybody’s welcome, and we want you all to feel comfortable letting your hair down. That’s why people come from as far as Birmingham, Hertfordshire, Surrey, Streatham and Blackheath, making our nights London’s No. 1 retro party.
