Million Dollar Orchestra Live

Following last year's hugely successful Jazz Festival show at Saint Lukes, which paid tribute to New York’s seminal Salsoul Records, The Million Dollar Orchestra returns with a bang on August 24th!

Million Dollar Orchestra Live

About Million Dollar Orchestra Live

Having upgraded to one of Glasgow’s flagship venues: SWG3 Galvanizers, the show evolves from toe-tapping sweat pit to full-on disco spectacular.

The Orchestra is the latest venture from Glasgow’s Million Dollar Disco record label. Spearheaded by revered local DJ and producer Al Kent, the label boasts an impressive track record of releases as well as an enviable reputation for hosting esteemed parties in Glasgow and across the UK. Striking a unique balance between paying respect to the spirit of disco whilst maintaining the flare of modern dance-floor sensibility, the nights have achieved cult status amongst young clubbers and disco stalwarts alike.

Featuring a full ten-strong band, including acclaimed local soul vocalists, backed by a now staggering orchestral section allowed by SWG3’s generous stage, the show will encapsulate the true essence of the disco era’s charm. Expect a hefty, funk-laden affair brimming with elegance and soul that modern music struggles to achieve. Certainly not the place to enjoy a glass of bubbly hinted by such an ensemble - the evening’s entertainment is firmly focused on keeping that disco fire burning on the dance-floor!

This year’s theme, ‘Love is the Message’, grants the opportunity for an expertly-crafted journey through the essence of the era's most captivating music. A refreshing escape from the negativity that’s abundant within modern society’s headlines, the show is a journey to the apex of good vibes where love can once again save the day!

In line with MDD’s core values and party-throwing prowess, post live show sees the party move upstairs to SWG3’s Warehouse where head honcho Al Kent will be on DJ duties. Continuing the journey with hidden treasure and crowd-pleasing gems, the after party is guaranteed to be a seamless blend into a heady party mindset for the most dedicated of clubbers.

Be sure to catch the greatest manifestation of authentic disco since the golden days!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Million Dollar Orchestra Live are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
