This summer marks the 20th anniversary of a disco that brought music lovers an alternative to night clubs playing your everyday chart music.
Over 200 people flocked to the very first Sonic Hippie Love Funk in Heaney’s, Ballybofey in 1991 to enjoy everything from Rock’n’Roll, Soul, Punk to Dance of that era.
The alternative disco lasted for four years and tomorrow night (Saturday) it’s going to be brought back for one night only at the Balor Arts Centre.
The night will not only mark the 20th anniversary and offer old friends to meet each other again, it will also raise much-needed funds for Grow, a charity promoting positive mental health.
The alternative disco was started by Seamus Campbell, Bernard Griffin and friends who got fed up with the disco and chart music of the night club scene of the day.
