Mohegan Lake, NY (PRWEB) July 19, 2010
In the best-selling tradition of Saturday Night Forever (The Story of Disco), Turn The Beat Around, And Party Every Day (The Casablanca Story), Stephen A. Welles’ new novel Disco Nights is an intriguing and entertaining look at one talented dancer’s personal view of the Disco years from the inside of the dance floor looking out.
Set in the flashy discos and on the streets of New York City in the late 1970s, author Stephen Welles, who was raised in the Bronx and Manhattan, uses his own experiences to paint his central character and how he became a part of the disco explosion coming out of the U.S. Marines (1977) as a 21-year-old “street-club dancer.”
Welles says, “Disco Nights offers readers the chance to learn about or relive the great memories of the Disco Era through the story line, the songs, the artists, the musicians, the street dancers, the clubs, and the DJ’s who put the music out. I also included a love story with a surprise ending, and a few exciting dance contests. Revolving around this story of our 1970s culture are landmark historical events that occurred in New York City – the 1977 black out; Son of Sam; the Yankees return to glory, gay rights, the summer where the Bronx was burning and more. I feel this book is more than entertaining because it will help people to understand an era that had its tough times but also was fun, exciting, and part of our musical culture and history.”
