Richard Lett Altitude Festival
“Sandwiched between the Irish comic maestro Ed Byrne and US urban hip hop legends Ugly Duckling we had a difficult task to complete. Who would raise the game in our 2000 capacity marquee from low seating high jinx of the comedian to whip up the crowd into a dancing frenzy?
The answer came in Jersey based party instigators the Disco Sensation Comedy Tribute Show. In fact it was more a case of light the touch paper and stand back – the ensuing explosion shook the mountaintops and we were lucky to escape an avalanche. Act after act streamed onto the stage, in big wigs, loud costumes and with and energy and zeal which quickly infected the crowd. There were pop icons aplenty; Freddy, Elvis and his dancing girls, MJ and even Snoop Dog – all carefully choreographed and set to the tunes of their own DJ (a man of questionable taste in clothing but a damn fine DJ).
The Disco Sensation brought home the party and provided the event with some fantastic and memorable visuals that were used to great affect in later years.“
