It’s been 40 years in the making and finally it is here..REVIVAL is the new retro night at Manbar with DJ Brent Nicholls and hosted by Jonny Hooley.
The whole night is based on clubbers requests…and Brent, if he has it, has to play it. Talk about Disco Revenge on poor Brent who has at times turned his nose up at many of the tunes requested.
The turnout was impressive with people coming from all parts of the gay tribe..Vauxhallers, scenestars, Compton Street crew and twinks up for a retro boogie.
One person said “I can’t believe so many people want to listen to this old crap”…but they do. For many it takes them to a ‘better day’ when they were young, for others it is like a museum of ‘samples’ to be found in current house music.
Revival also had pop up celebrities like Lady Gagas and Kylie Minogue in the house, and Michael Jackson made a special return for the evening.
