FAC51- THE HACIENDA NYE RESIDENTS PARTY GRAEME PARK / GREG WILSON / TOM WAINWRIGHT / JON DASILVA / ALLISTER WHITEHEAD / CHAD JACKSON
The Hacienda NYE & Resients parties have always been pretty special and this NYE we welcome a host ofresidents who helped shape the musical direction of The Hacienda, playing week in, week out at the club, breaking the records that went on to influence dance music worldwide.
We will be dancing in the new year at a new intimate 850 capacity Warehouse space situated a stones throw away from the original club
The event sees six of the residents who soundtracked FAC51 over its fifteen years as the centre-point of Manchester’s music scene. Greg Wilson, the first DJ ever to mix live on TV on Channel 4’s The Tube was Saturday night resident 1983 to 1984. He was followed by Chad Jackson, then DMC World Mix Champion as Saturday’s resident from 1985 to 1986.
As acid house took charge of the club in the late Eighties, Jon Dasilva ushered in this new era with the revolutionary Hot night and then Graeme beginning his residency to February 1988 to share Nude Night duties with Mike Pickering.
As the club reopened in May 1991, Mike and Graeme took charge of Friday and Saturday nights respectively and then added new residents, as Allister Whitehead was added as resident to Shine, while Tom Wainwright formed a great partnership with Graeme on what became known as “Squiggle”.
