Ciao! Ciao! Following hot on the heels of our freewheeling Forza Giro speciale we return to the decadent surrounds of Casa Forza for our partito compleanno secondo celebrazione! We will be marking our second year anniversario in maximus decadance style with two floorza of musicale speziale with the Terrazza featuring two bona-fide italo legende, a returning Dutch maestro and a host of old friends and new. In a journey that has taken us from to the final of Euro 2012, down the slopes of Courmayeur across the Grossglockner High Alpine Road to the autobahns of Deutschland via New York dive bars, Berlin Bahnoff’s & Giro Escapades to return back once again to where it all started...
Starring on Il Terrazza we are molto felice to welcome two true original stars of the Italo era d’oro in the shape of Ken Laszlo & Fred Ventura. Hey, hey Ken will be belting through a series of his hammers through the night with surely not a dry eye in the casa. Classic tracks from Laszlo such as Hey Hey Guy, Tonight & Don’t Cry were epochal recordings that defined the very core of Italo Disco - he is one of the original capos and he is still rocking it out in 2014, 30 anno after the original era d’oro. Laszlo has sold more than 1,000,000 copies of his records - facto! Godfather Fred Ventura will be rocking il microphono getting ready to return to the stage of his triumphant debut on Il Terrazza but as a special birthday present to the Forza Comitata he will also be on the giradischi for a special italo wave & disco DJ set with plenty of hammers and heartbreakers exclusivo!
Support comes from Forza made-guy, DJ Ken Hanzlo and DJ Nino Con Nero. Con Nero also known for his Somadrone project, has recently returned from living in New York. Whilst there he spent many hours trawling second hand record emporiums and thrift stores mining for golden nuggets of early 80s wave and synth wax. We are delighted to give Nino the opportunity to exhibit these lost treasures. Completing the musical narrative on Il Terrazza and blowing out the birthday candles will be Forza residents Crosserini e Simonetti, it is going to get emotional.
The House of Forza welcomes back a familiar face in an unfamilar setting. The DJ Overdose becomes Live Overdose as we are molto eccitante to host a very rare live set from the man like DJ Overdose aka Model Man. Maker of some of the sickest electro beats around featured on the likes of Bunker, Lunar Disko, Creme & Murder Capital, DJ Overdose rocks the dancefloor to maximum effect. Everytime. DJ Pressure in the House of Forza comes from the Discoteca Lunare / Garibaldi’s Gang combinazio of Barry Donovan, Andy Doyle & Shane O’Meara. Super-stellar DJs traversing the worlds of house, techno, disco, electro and football punditry, they will be the Brennans sliced pan of the Overdose triple-decker.
With Brazil 2014 on the horizon, our cinematic screening this Forza harks back to the halcyon days of Walkinstown roundabouts and Italia 90 kickabouts. We reach for the FIFA stars with The Official FIFA 90 World Cup Film where with Ireland making their debut in the world’s greatest competition, the stage was set for Packie & Pavarotti to knock it out of the park. With Charlton’s boys lining up against both the Netherlands and Italy during the tournament hosted in the old country, what better choice to fill up a paragraph of a Forza press release.
So join us for our secondo compleano celebrazione in our home spirituale of Odessa once again for what promises to be uno parti fantastico!
