"DISCO INFERNO"- The Trammps Perform at Atlantic City's Resorts Superstar Theater!





One of MrKen's A-T-Fave 1970's disco bands will perform in the Superstar Theater at Resorts Atlantic City for five groovy shows beginning on Sunday, September 9 thru Wednesday, September 12-- and Friday Sepember 14.

The Trammps unique blend of pulsating beats, catchy melodies and vocal harmonies embodied the essence of a style that grew to define the disco era.

MrKen still owns the wonderful 1976 LP album, "Where The Happy People Go". The album included the songs, 'Disco Party', 'Hooked for Life', and Soul Searchin' Time.' This album was showered with honors: Best Disco Album, Best Disco Artist, Best Disco Single and Best Disco Single Unreleased (Billboard, 1976).

And, of course, the Trammps cemented their place in music history with the Saturday Night Fever hit, "Disco Inferno" (of course MrKen owns both the album of the same name & the 'Fever' LP). And in 1994, Rhino records released on Cd "This is Where the Happy People Go: The Best of the Trammps
--1--

Indeed, the Trammps produced some of the happiest, carefree & danceable music ever!
****************************************************************
But take notice! There is a new disco orchestra, "Escort", that's been performing lately in Brooklyn & Stuyvesant town ("Brooklyn's Finest Disco Orchestra"- Village Voice 8/1-8/7/07)! Here is a quote from Dan, one of the producers...


"For a lot of people who do production, when you're digging for samples on disco records, you're like, 'Oh, I actually like this better than the stuff that's coming out now...The engineering's better, the production's better--and oh my god, it's actually musical."

This guy has my vote...but then, the music reflects the times.

Footnote -1- Disco aficionados may be disappointed that only the 'short' version of "Where the Happy People Go" is reprised on the Rhino CD. The "long" club version, which includes the tantalizing piano intro, can only be found on the original LP and possibly the CD, if still available. However, the collection itself is terrific. (MrKen).
