They say time flies when you’re having fun and this definitely seems to be the case with Nostalgia Parties, which celebrates five years of entertaining the island this Saturday. Ranging from swing to 80s hits and rock nights, if there’s one thing these guys know well it is how to pick quality music to put on a party.
With over 40 parties under their belt, there are “too many amazing moments to mention,” say Claudio Sagbhini and Nicholas Tryfon.
“What we enjoy most is seeing people of all ages and backgrounds coming together, mingling, dancing and having fun. In this way, together with the fundraising work we have done over the years, we feel we’re contributing to the community.”
Their fundraising refers to a portion of the ticket sales that goes to a selected charity after each event. And the focus on customer experience doesn’t go unnoticed either. Whether it is outdoor video projections, flickering disco balls or venues that fit a night’s theme, the Nostalgia team has shown that each detail of the events is well-thought out.
“We get a casual, happy, open-minded crowd and we think that’s the main reason people keep coming back,” say Claudio and Nicholas. “We like to think of ourselves as ‘something in the middle’, not too underground and not too cheesy or mainstream. We are also probably one of the only parties in Cyprus where a young and older crowd comfortably share the dancefloor and where no social inhibitions exist.” That’s how it all started in 2014, feeding a need for a high-quality ‘retro’ party for an older crowd but also for a more alternative, well-educated in music crowd.
Now, Nostalgia celebrates five years with an upcoming party on Saturday in Nicosia which promises great music, a great crowd and a few surprises. Music will be by DJs Claudio and Marcos, and there will be food, drinks and lots of dancing.
