I was lucky enough to be asked to take photos at a really special party on Friday 27th Sept. 2014 at the Baltic Social here in Liverpool of disco legend Nicky Siano.
“Nicky Siano was dancing in Manhattan clubs at 15, and by the age of 17 was resident and co-owner of the hottest club in New York: ‘The Gallery’. He mentored Frankie Knuckles and Larry Levan, worked in the studio with Arthur Russell, and is one of a handful of DJ’s who started the dance music scene in New York: Nicky Siano TRULY deserves to be called a legend.
Not only did he inspire such clubs as THE GARAGE & STUDIO 54, but he also launched the careers of Grace Jones, D.C. La Rue, & Loleatta Holloway to name a few. He also famously worked the dj booth at Bianca Jagger’s infamous Studio 54 Birthday Party. It was no coincidence that when Steve Rubelle opened Studio 54 he chose Nicky as one of the two original DJs”

"The photos were great – they were exactly what we were after in terms of capturing the networking, the high profile speakers, the Awards winners and also the fun of the Awards dinner. It was great to have such an involved photographer at the event capturing as much as possible and we would be very happy to use you again"
