Come On Disney, Let's Reopen 8TRAX!
If you would be so kind, please let me reopen 8TRAX. I've got the money, I've got the DJ's, you've got the place. Let's make beautiful Disco music together, 70's style. You and I. At Pleasure Island.
The thing about a 70's Disco format is that it would not succeed anywhere but in vacation meccas such as Pleasure Island, CityWalk and on cruise ships. In these locations there is a constantly changing stream of potential customers who are drawn-in by the kitsch that is 70's Disco; the parade of hit music, the crazy fashions, the iconic celebrities of those days. My visit to Studio 54 earlier this week confirmed my belief of the drawing power of Disco. Disco is family-friendly. Everyone from every age group knows the songs and the words. A reopened 8TRAX could be family-oriented into mid-evening and then switch to an all-adult format later on. It's a fun night out that they can't get back home. Another great vacation memory. At Disney.
Well think about it and let me know! Thanks, KINGBOB
PS-If we can't use the 8TRAX name, not a problem. I've got some other cool names we can use instead!
