‘On the surface Culture Seventy Six (C76) is somewhere between disco and boogie, but it would be a sad injustice to stop digging there, go deeper and you’ll also find the core elements of soul and funk as part of the musically atheistic landscape of this burgeoning company.’
C76 has been created out of it’s influence and love of disco from it’s most memorable year, and with the huge resurgence of disco, soul and funk infused music, the people behind this unique brand felt it was time to bring some of the current scenes playmakers to the South West of England.
Cindy Dalgleish the promoter and creative producer has over thirty years of experience in music industry, event management and marketing. This history always always brings a high level of production, music and un-rivalled atmosphere that simply titillates your ears, eyes and your arse!
C76 go out of their way to make your experience of an event much more. The addition of glamorous fashion, dancers and hosts, coupled with world renowned DJ’s, live artists and supporting instrumentalists really make their events a cut above the rest. Their particular choice of lighting and sound are also carefully designed to bring back the original spirit of disco and soul often found in the likes of NYC’s the Loft, Paradise Garage, Studio 54 and Limelight.
Recognsing a gap for quality Disco, Soul and Funk events in the South West, Si had already been putting on some parties as Modern Disco but felt that things could go bigger, Cindy was also promoting the sound of Disco and rare groove through her Disco Hustle events that have now merged into Culture Seventy Six AKA C76.
With early stage support and montoring from an established disco and house music producer, music journalist and educator Si Gordon who has longstanding relationships with a group of international artists, Djs and promoters that are the cream of the crop in today’s disco scene, with these contacts C76 was able to launch with the European tour for Downtown Disco which includes Dr Packer, Michael Gray and Ian Ossia.
Culture Seventy Six was the only UK South West leg of the tour, planned by Downtown Disco.’
