O2 Academy Islington
For a year now the Coffin Dodgers Disco has been sticking two fingers up to the youth and showing them how it’s really done, tempting old time clubbers out of their comfy chairs and back on to the dance floor where they belong!
After being bombarded with requests, Don and Reg have grudgingly decided to forgo watching Jools Holland and put on a party on New Year’s Eve like no other in London!
You can expect a few balloons, a few Werther’s Originals, a smattering of silly games to test your aching limbs and lots of rock, pop, disco and indie for you to dance round your zimmer to! And of course, Don and Reg doing their thing. They may even offer you a cup of tea from their flask…
It should be the hottest night since Bournemouth Working Men’s Club burnt to the ground!
Remember Coffin Dodgers Disco is strictly for over 28s only. Photo ID MUST be produced, even if you have purchased an advance ticket! No Kids Allowed!
Expect to hear classic tunes all night. Remember Don & Reg don’t do hip-hop, it’s more like hip-op as they sound the call to arms to all the wrinklies out there who are still old enough to kick up some noise! In order not to spoil the party, Don and Reg have put a block on anyone under 28 from attending and Vera, our door fascist, will be checking your ID (please bring some) and asking you questions like, “Name 3 of the England players featured in the Mexico 86 Panini sticker album” or requesting that you sing theme tune to 80s kiddies classic ‘Rainbow’ or ‘Grange Hill’ There will be loads going on during the night, so come on Grandpa, grab your cardie (we don’t do chill…) and get that zimmer on the dancefloor. Oh and feel free to ask us to turn the sound down if you think it is a bit loud! So come and have a go if you think you are old enough!
Door Policy: We’re now deep into winter so we recommend you oldies dig out your thermal underwear once again, we don’t want you starting the new year with a cold now, do we. Remember we have a nice cloakroom for you to put all your coats in now.
Come and twist your hips to the Christmas hits of yesteryear. Don’t expect to hear anything the youth like! No dubstep, no processed beats and remember, house is something you live in! No, these old gents like tunes with words and a melody you can whistle in the shower, whilst nicely soaped up and using the loofah on those hard to reach parts, So what can you wrinklies expect to hear? Pop, indie, rock, disco, Motown, rock ‘n’ roll, power ballads, soul, punk, funk and of course some Vera Lynn!
