About the LA DISCO SOCIETY
In the heyday of Disco Music, in the 70s and early 80s, hundreds of great Disco songs were crafted and to this day, we keep discovering some amazing gems that not many people know or have heard.
In 2007, the Los Angeles Disco Society became the VERY FIRST Disco Meetup in the WORLD, after successfully convincing Meetup.com to add Disco as a Music Genre.
While we will celebrate ALL the various styles of Disco Music and its big massive blockbuster hits like "YMCA", "Le Freak", "I Will Survive", "Hot Stuff" and others, we will also try to expand our own knowledge by discovering the hits that only made it regionally or in Europe and didn't get the club or radio airplay they deserved, the more obscure but drop-dead gorgeous pieces that came out perhaps at the wrong time,etc
We will also sponsor potluck get-togethers or even outings to local clubs. Members can bring and share their favorite songs and allow us all to discover or enjoy some great music.
BTW we don't discriminate against anyone. This group is open to ALL (read important note below however)!
So If you're cool, friendly, funny, have a lot of integrity, are willing to participate regularly (both with emails and on our outings) and you LOOOOOOOVE Disco, JOIN US NOW!! it's FREEE!!!!
And get ready to GET DOWN and SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE!!! ))
