The 1970s were a highlight in music. As the era that bred the likes of ABBA, Black Sabbath, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Rolling Stones, Roxy Music, Pink Floyd, Blondie, Fleetwood Mac, The Jackson 5 and countless others it was the perfect incubator for musicians blending traditional techniques with cutting edge development in production and instrumentation.
One of the most recognisable genres of the decade, disco saw its heyday in the flared pants, glitter balls, and discothéques of the 70s. The likes of The Bee Gees, KC and the Sunshine Band, the Village People, and Gloria Gaynor were all leaders in this field with electronic driven dance tracks astounding audiences around the world. Book a famous act or try a 70s-themed tribute to these legendary performers to make sure your guests groove all night long.
