The Sheen Resistance – how London gets its groove on
LIke a perfect genetically engineered blend of Demis Roussos and Roger Moore, The Sheen Resistance plot the liberation of occupied London with the pure power of disco.
Lost in 1984 when their E-Type Jaguar collided with a lorry just outside St Tropez, The Sheen Resistance were perfectly preserved by its cargo of frozen champagne cocktails.
Discovered and revived in 2009, their mission is to bring classic dance tunes to the ears & feet of London. When they’re not doing that they can be found modelling safari suits on the catwalks of Paris Fashion Week or travelling between Milan and Monte Carlo by sequinned jetpacks. Probably.
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, the riotous Mighty Hoopla festival and guest slots at a secret party in party heaven Ibiza.
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.
The monthly Lost In Disco show is broadcast live from the studios of Music Box Radio in central London featuring two hours of disco, soul, funky electronica and anything groovy and slightly retro.
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.
