The Ramsgate Soul Train returns for its biggest and best party yet… for a STUDIO 54 – NEW YEARS EVE SPECIAL!
We’ll be counting down to 2022 with the finest Funk, Soul, Rare Groove, Disco, Boogie & Northern Soul around, on a sound system that really gets kickin’. Let’s celebrate in style!
If you’re a lover of Soul, Funk & Disco then our STUDIO 54 celebration is the NYE party for you! Because, the ultimate New Year celebration would surely require jumping into Doc Brown’s DeLorean, slotting Sylvester’s ‘You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)’ into the cassette player and blasting back to December 31, 1977 (or ’78) at which point in time the car would squeal to a halt right outside 254 West 54th Street in New York City – home of the legendary Studio 54, once the best known nightclub in the world. In fact, no one would be likely to bat an eyelid if you did turn up in Doc Brown’s DeLorean. After all, it was considered quite normal when Bianca Jagger arrived for her birthday party on the back of a horse!
So this year arrive like a star, rockin’ your best retro vibes with glam dresses, jumpsuits, velvet anything, fur coats, glittery outfits, white suits, loud shirts and wide brimmed hats or whatever takes your fancy. They’ll be prizes for the best outfits, so get your glad rags on and party like it’s 1977!!
