Not going to Ibiza this year? Probably just as well. It’s never been quite the same since Kasabian discovered it, has it? Instead, grab a spray tan, and get on down to see the legendary New York DJ, Nicky Siano – at Studio 2, on Parr St.

Nicky Siano was dancing in Manhattan clubs at 15 (yeah, well, we were dancing at the 051. What of it?). Ah, but Siano was resident and co-owner of the hottest club in New York, ‘The Gallery’, when he was 17 – so that’s where our stories diverge somewhat.

After mentoring Frankie Knuckles and Larry Levan, working with Arthur Baker and launching the careers of Grace Jones, D.C. La Rue, & Loleatta Holloway he also worked the DJ booth at Bianca Jagger’s infamous Studio 54 Birthday Party. We were on the balcony. Honestly, we still have flashbacks.

So this has all the makings of being quite an event. The man who invented beatmatching promises to bring the spirit of 70s clubland to the city for one night only…
