The 1980’s….the decade that fashion forgot but which also produced some of the most awesome music of all time! It also provided us with the 80s disco setup which many party goers of a certain vintage look back on with fond memories!
In these days of most mobile disco setups looking like clones of each other….the 80s Roadshow offers something a little bit different!
There’s a big resurgence in everything ’80s at the moment, especially with the younger generation. I’m even seeing a lot of ’80s themed weddings at the moment, and that makes me a very happy DJ indeed!
Retro parties are absolutely AWESOME
I’ve seen parties where fancy-dress has been the order of the evening (as is usually the case) where an entire family of Smurfs has arrived, and there have been so many nylon costumes that the atmosphere was quite literally…electric!
The ’80s Roadshow is a genuine mobile disco light-show as would have been seen at functions during the 1980’s, and was indeed the first type of mobile disco I used to use. Much of the Roadshow as seen today is my original setup from the day.
With the advantage of digital quality sound and the enhancement of just a few modern-day fixtures (the original light-shows lit the floor, not the room!), the ’80s Roadshow is being used more and more for milestone disco parties….especially those with a theme based around the 1980’s.
It’s old, it’s heavy (I know the feeling!), and it’s how a disco used to look!
Although nearly 40 years old, this particular setup probably receives more comments from customers and guests than any other I take out onto the road.
Many customers and their guests remember this type of setup from the days of the “school disco”.
It’s a real trip down memory lane! And believe me, the music matches the memories of the flashing lights!
Please note that due to the weight of the ’80s Roadshow, it’s really only ideally suited to ground floor venues. Function rooms which involve stairs will sadly incur additional fees and need extra time to set up!
Fancy dress from the era, pineapple and cheese on sticks, and music from your youth….what better way to celebrate your special birthday than with a disco setup the way things used to be back then?
It doesn't just have to be for '80s themed parties!
The Roadshow is also regularly used for:
- 60s themed parties
- 70s themed parties
- Any other party where you’d like things to look just a little bit different from the modern day equipment!
And as you’d expect with any party I work at you get:
- Full playlist management via my online planning tools
- Me, as your award winning DJ (and someone who was there in the 1980s!)
- Fully tested equipment
- Fully insured
- Memories to last a lifetime!

An 80s themed birthday party at Arbury Community Centre, complete with the Retro Roadshow. What’s not to like?
When I first got the enquiry from Kelly about her wedding way back in 2017, I KNEW it was going to be a brilliant party!
A party with a large hint of 80s and 90s music and the 80s Roadshow to match the theme. My idea of a party!
