San Francisco has a diverse disco scene that often crosses over but not often enough. The goal of Go BANG! is to bring the crews and their devoted dancers together in a mixed, diverse, exciting environment, with a nod to the diversity and freedom of the 70’s/80’s San Francisco/New York/Chicago disco nightlife!
Taking inspiration from the classic Dinosaur L. song

He regularly headlines some of the biggest entertainment events in the world. His style encapsulates an incredible range.

**Featuring: Tal M. Klein:
Somewhere around 1996 Dave Marino (whom Tal met while doing a late night talk show called “The Saturday Night Hangover” at their university radio station) let him into his recording studio in Belmont, New York. Since then Tal has been an auditory menace to the world at large, forcing his records, mp3’s, and cd’s down everybody throats like it was cod oil and the asian flu was going out of business. Tal is all about drunk funk, that’s music which inspires one to both chill and shake their ass at the same time. Finding that perfect funky record, to him, is like winning the chocolate, money, and sex lottery.

**Featuring: Eddie House *Go BANG! Premiere!*
Growing up in the SF Bay Area music has always been in Eddie’s family. His Father and Uncles were a popular band back in the 1960’s called “The Apostol Bros.” later changing into “The Heartbeat Band.” Everything that Eddie learned about Old School and Classic Soul has been through his father’s vinyl, which he holds as a treasure to this day. It’s no wonder why he is in love with any genre that has to do with Soul. Eddie began collecting and studying his vinyl since he was a teenager. Always having a fascination with Funk and Soul this sums up the eclectic, tasteful music selection Eddie brings to the tables and dance floor. He adopted the moniker “Eddie House” to describe his love for House Music, rhythm, soul, funk, disco and grooves.
