And, of course, a little background on the three memorable clubs.
Piccadilly, which ceased operations 21 years ago drew large crowds especially during the weekends, with an average of about 500 people mainly because of its bands, good music, ambiance, massive sound system and bright neon lights. Piccadilly was also known for its legendary Tea Dance parties on the weekends. Every teenager in the 80s and 90's may have been to these parties at least once in their life. The discothèque with its main entrance at the side of the building has been replaced by other businesses and since 2008, a language center.
Tin Mine, from its original venue in the original Hilton KL (then Crowne Plaza, now demolished) in Jalan Sultan Ismail, was the place to be and be seen on Saturday nights back in the 1980s. This was the place to be and be seen on Saturday nights. It was the joint where the rich and beautiful hob-nobbed. The interior of the disco was styled around the theme of a tin mine. Many Malaysian bands like The Strollers, The Revolvers, The Falcons, Alleycats and Anita Sarawak performed regularly there. Some of the bands later became recording artistes and some had successful stints overseas. That era was considered as the Golden Age of Malaysian bands. Dress code is enforced on weekends, but not on weeknights. Club Tin Mine does not permit plain tee shirts, beanies, dew rags, headbands or bandannas, hoodies, cut off or sleeveless shirts. If you want to get in, dress nice!
As for Scandals, It was 1986 and the club scene was bucking the country’s economic trend. The club to be seen in was Scandals. It was at the back of KL Plaza. All the spoilt rich kids were there parading around with their dad’s Porsches while the genuine hardworking ones were driving TX3s, at least I think it’s theirs. Busy nights at Scandals use to be on the weekends only but the parties will go on till the wee hours in the morning. Scandals disco was never raided even once in its lifetime. Scandals was also known by its strict music policy, dresscode and an A lister crowd. Many of them were models, fashion designers, celebrities and Royalties.
There will be limited tickets at the door at RM90 with one drink and a Big Reunion non-stop mix promo CD compiled by the above DJs. You can also pre-buy these tickets before the event by calling Ariff at 012 9532646. You are advised to get your tickets early as we only have a maximum capacity of 600pax at a time.
