La Cheetah Club Presents Francisco

Roman party ignitor and master of all things disco, Francisco (Jollymusic), will be joining us in Glasgow for a pre Christmas shake down. Francisco is one of the most eclectic dance artists that has been working in the Italian music scene, especially because of his fresh and quirky sound made of Italo Disco, Funk and Old School Chicago House. So many DJ's from Italy and Europe had taken notice of his music just after the release of his first two solo records "Salvation" and "Fregna" both on Pigna records. Francisco's music has been featured on many compilations by people such as Dr. Electroluv or numerous ones issued by the famous British dance magazines Jockey Slut and DJ Magazine. Francisco is ready now to step ahead introducing newer tracks such as "Moon Roller" and a full length album named "Music Business". Both works showing that he represents the heritage of the purest Italo disco. His show is made of humor and groove, all based on a perfect mixing technique that has been acknowledged during the many experiences on the road thanks to his previous projects such as Mat101 and Jollymusic.

Francisco plays the La Cheetah Club (below Max's Kansas City) on Queen St Glasgow on Friday 17th December for a "Black Friday Disco Speciale" Support comes from The Wasp (Pest Control Records) and Craig Moog (Electrofunkdiscotek). Tickets £7 on door 11pm-3am. Black Friday just got a whole lot brighter......
