Highlight of the night would have to be the running man competition. Grown folks in the middle of the circle dancing their hearts to the sounds of MC Hammer like they were 14 again.
It was definitely a night full of 90s nostalgia. Many punters coming dressed to the theme having rummaged through the back of their closets to find an outfit they may have worn more than 10 years ago. Meanwhile, the DJs pumped out rnb classic after classic to a packed Danceteria at Goodgod Small Club.
Thanks to all that came and made it a massive night. Congratulations to Callum our Running Man Champion of NSW and Lilybeth the winner of our Westcoast Cooler and Passion Pop hamper for best dressed.
Break out your Cross Colours, Malcolm X caps and your mustard Keppers because this Saturday we are doing a party at Goodgod that will be just like the Blue Light Discos of your youth, just without the Bombers trying to steal your Reebok Pumps.
Big DJ line up playing 90s and 80s R&B/Hip Hop Hits. Plus there will be a running man competition where you can win this signed* photo of Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopez.
On top of that best dressed on the night wins this Hamper including West Coast Cooler and Passion Pop.

What can I say about DJ Spinbad that hasn’t already been said. Basically you need this mixtape in your life. This tape is so next level and makes 90’s cheese sound amazing. So much detail so much time… if you slept on this tape you need to download it today and if you’re a hater you suck and will probably stub your toe in the next 3 days.
These photos were too funny not to blog. A while ago an old friend of mine, Astrid posted these shots on her facebook. Yes that is me in the orange Lowes jumper performing at Eastgarden’s shopping centre. With lyrics like “It ain’t easy being on social security. So they consider me, a burden to society”, I was an instant hit amongst local shoppers that flocked with groceries in hand.
Adidas and Nike jumpers, awful undercuts with long fringes, high waisted jeans, but I think what makes these photo collages so perfect is Astrid’s Catholic School Girl meets Graffiti style of writing. Awesome to the power of infinity plus one.
Competition: What were you wearing in the 90s?
Send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will repay you with a signed and framed photo of Janet Jackson or Aaron Hall much like this one from MC Hammer and take you out to dinner or something.
