Hailing from Derry, Northern Ireland, Queen & Disco formed in early 2013. Throwing parties provided a platform to showcase their sound and get heard, with a string of live mixes, released mainly on the Q&D ‘Soundcloud’ page, as well as showings on the likes of ‘Disco Deviance’, and several shows on London’s ‘MeatTransmission Radio’.
The Q&D sound has been honed with constant playing, making sure residents Barry Crumley, Alan Mooney, and Bee Mc Cormick know each others styles inside out. 3 distinct tastes Funk, Soul, Disco, Boogie, and House elements but, always going somewhere that suits the night in question.
Resident Alan Mooney has also had several releases on names such as ‘Midnight Riot’, Austrian imprint ‘We Mean Disco’ and a release on US based ‘Noc Boots’ to name a few. ‘Every Time’ is undoubtedly the most successful, reaching Number 1 in the “JunoDownland” Disco Chart.
Gigs have come at an increasing rate with a residency in hometown mecca ‘Sandinos’ with their monthly guests. Away dates have included multiple Gigs in London, Brighton, Dublin, Glasgow, as well as a whole host of other Irish Cities with a debut festival appearance, and a first venture to mainland Europe in Italy.
