A club can exist with camaraderie, with love, with harmony. It doesn’t have to be a pushy distasteful thing, which a lot of clubs are these days. Clubs can be very harmonious, and it starts at the staff, and then it comes down to the patrons. Remember, if you are working in the club scene, what you do impacts on the patrons...so get your head together because you’re giving a party. Let it be the best it can, and let it be with your best friends. And even if they’re not, act as if they are, until they are

Nicky Siano was born 18th March, 1955 in Brooklyn, New York. In 1971, at the age of 16, he performed his first DJ gig. In 1972 he opened iconic disco club The Gallery in SoHo Manhattan with his older brother Joe Siano. When Steve Rubell opened Studio 54 he asked Nicky to be a resident DJ on weekdays. He became known for playing underground alternative music, as opposed to the disco hits that were dominating the nightclub scene. Nicky was fired from Studio 54 after four months due to excessive drug usage. Subsequently, he went into production and produced his first big single ‘Kiss Me Again’ in 1977 for Sire Records, which sold more than 300,000 copies.
