Legends of Vinyl are a national institution providing global leadership in education, recognition and celebration of excellence in the art of creative spinning of record vinyl.
To this day, these Pioneer Legendary DJs are still actively performing for large audiences and representing a very small and unique community of DJs that are from that innovative era. They are the originators, the springboards, of the art of spinning record vinyl that has laid the foundation and has paved the way for the latest and currently changing dance music avenues of today. And to add to all of this, no two Legendary DJs from the Legends of Vinyl are alike with their innovative and creative spinning talents.
Each is his/her own Rembrandt. All forms of dance music today, and without a doubt, has its roots tied to the Legends of Vinyl. For 40 years the Legendary Pioneer DJs have remained a constant in the art of remixing, remastering, engineering, and producing the highest quality of music as you still hear it today.
Their ingenious work is still heard and cherished all over the globe today as it was originally created on vinyl 12 and 7 pressings.
Legends of Vinyl is guided by prestigious, award winning and Hall of Fame DJs, chaired by Luis Mario "Flaco" Orellana and Ray "Pinky" Velazquez.
The entity is also comprised of and supported by key figures from the DJ entertainment community. The Haven, The Sanctuary, The Loft, The Salvation, the world renowned Paradise Garage. Anyone who was part of the atmosphere and chemistry at any one or all of these historic dance clubs, owns a nostalgic and emotional "take over" that they cannot describe in words alone.
There have been books written about the early days that gave way to who the Legends of Vinyl are and, if you read these books, you will come to logic and understand the written text but can never explain nor come close to absorbing the emotional euphoria-the intense emotional high. To fully capture this experience you will have to come and hear and feel the Legends of Vinyl - those classic club DJs from that era who, to this day, "spin" vinyl just like it was performed in the early days of disco and dance. The music is nothing like you've heard - underground, creative, melodic, sensual, driving, attitude, funk, high energy, all combined providing an emotional trip and, to put in simple layman's terms, downright "nasty" at the same time.
This is actual artistry and not just an evolving technology. The true artistry of spinning vinyl records; you have to be there, hear it, and watch the show created by the originators and absorb the emotional wisdom. Legends of Vinyl, the originators, the innovators, the turntable risk takers - the ones who started the party disco/dance movement that has evolved into a dance craze frenzy all over the globe and further directed and produced the fire of what has captured every form of dance in every medium today.
All dance roots have their humble beginnings tied to the Legends of Vinyl. We will rekindle an era of passion and emotion - and you will become part of the bygone era with us from sundown to day break, recharge your batteries and come to the next gala event.
Even the old club historians and aficionados will find this performance "trip" to be entertaining and memorable just to listen to and watch.
Disco balls? Rubbish! The first lighting that was used for dancing in this era – psychedelic lighting; that's right, right out of the 60s; so if you think we're talking Saturday Night Fever – go back, way back - back into time! Where the only people that existed were Troglodytes (as Jimmy Castor would have said).
As you listen and dance to The Legends of Vinyl you can hear how dance (pre-disco) music spawned and influenced the new forms of music that you hear today. Most of this music originated in 7 inch 45rpm vinyl track format. Get ready for our upcoming gala DJ/Artists Hall of Fame Seminars, Awards Ceremonies, and After Parties as history makes a full circle comeback! We're coming to a city near you!!
