shimmy shimmy coco pop is back and we’ve got a new location, LUCCA! A huge dance floor, big booths, great wood beams and vintage tiles…a perfect fit for a shimmy shimmy coco pop party!
We’ve also decided to expand and add another decade to the mix. So instead of just your favourite 50s rock’n’roll oldies and 60s motown soul sounds, we’re adding in some 70s funk to the mix.
Jake Catlett always knows how to get you moving on the dance floor. His music collection is extensive so expect to hear your favourite oldies hits next to some rare asian soul tracks. You never know what to expect when Jake plays and that’s a great thing!
We’ve also asked Uncon Sci to join us for the first time. Some of you may know him from his electronic dj sets and live performances…but what you didn’t know was that Uncon Sci used to be a resident DJ at LA’s finest weekly raw funk dance parties, Funky Sole. He’s bringing along a selection of records so expect to hear some killer funky soul tunes!
And of course your hostess, superkid will be playing all your favourite happy-happy-sunshine-lollipop rock’n’roll and soul tracks that gets you jumpin’, jiving, shimmy-ing and twisting the night away.
We love visuals! We love projections! We love watching old clips of soul train and american bandstand! So we’ve asked stickbug back to provide some great visuals for the party.
As always dress up is encouraged, so pull out that those blue jeans and biker jacket, mod dress and 3 button skinny suit. Slick back that pompadour, put up that beehive hair and let’s get ready for the return of one of the best 50s/60s dance parties in town!
