For your next party why not do something different and
take it back to yester-year retro music style. Pick a year
in your life, say the year you left school, lets face it
the music was brilliant then. Choose another year perhaps
when you started work, again another year of top pop tunes. We can focus on just one theme or decade such as 70s Disco 80s pop or going way back with 50's rock n roll. We can also mix it up and play the biggest dance floor hits (which are not necessarily the same as the biggest chart hits) from the past to make a retro hit mash up.
A blast from the past makes a fun theme for your party. For a retro music theme parties our DJs will play the best 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s dance Music to make it a smash hit event. A party DJ can play the best and proven floor filling tracks from each era to ensure a busy dance floor. If its your silver, ruby or golden wedding anniversary we can play the music from when you first met. If its your 40th, 50th, or 60th birthday party etc we can play the hits from your School days, teen years or 21st birthday party. Theme parties give everyone a chance to get into fancy dress and that always breaks the ice. Dress up and get down to 70s dance floor classics played by 70s DJ in London, Essex, Hertfordshire, Berkshire and Bucks.
Old Skool is the new cool. Most people will think back
to an earlier time and agree, music today is not as good
as it was then. This is true, or to put it another way completely
untrue. The real truth is that at any point in the UK chart
history there would be rubbish music which we have wisely
forgotten. However there would also be classic tracks which
we remember and love. Unfortunately a less experienced party
DJ, who is only playing tracks from compilation albums will
not know what's a hit and what's a miss until it creates
a dance floor walk off. For example if you love 80's music
do you love the massive number one "There's no one
quite like Grandma", or the chirpy classic "Orville's
song". These tracks all make our worst
tunes of the 80s list and some serious money would have
to change hands before we would give these terrible tunes
a spin at an 80s retro music party. Although some terrible tunes made it to the top of the charts sometimes its the less successful tracks that have a more positive effect on the dance floor.
With experience, the party DJ can filter out all the rubbish
and no matter what period you pick for your retro music
theme party there will still be a wealth of great tracks
to choose from. In fact music selections can usually be
honed down even further. For instance 60's Motown is very
different to swinging sixties Mersey beat or music from
the 60s flower power generation etc.
What about 70s glam rock verses 70's punk rock, so different
yet this music was divided in the charts only by about a
year. 70's soul and disco are similar but you could have
a Retro seventies music party playing one or the other,
80s music party's are very popular, with a broad range
of music styles to choose from. New wave bands with the
distinct electronic sound can help set the tone of a retro
party, and tunes from the hugely popular 80's boy bands
like Duran Duran, ABC and Spandau Ballet will build the
dance floor action. Maintaining popularity particularly
amongst the chaps is the ska and reggae inspired sounds
of bands like Madness, Bad Manners and UB40. These bands
have provided us with some classic floor fillers that will
even get dad on the dance floor, at a Family
Towards the end of the 80's, dance took over. During a
party everyone started shouting aciiiiiiiid... House (which
is different to earlier Chicago house) this doesn't work
that well at Retro party today but is set for a comeback.
The bit in the middle 80s is often the most popular. This
can be divided in to different groups, ie cheesy pop tunes
from artists such as Wham, Kylie, Mel and Kim, etc or discos
classics from Whitney Houston, Alexander O'Neill, MJ and Luther
The best Retro night disco parties would usually involve
