Keeping disco alive in Spain

By Steve Gilmour, of TRE

THIS was the concert I had been looking forward to all summer – Earth, Wind and Fire, at the Puente Romano Hotel, Marbella.

Whoever had the idea to host summer concerts at Marbella’s Puente Romano tennis club is a genius. And legendary Earth, Wind and Fire didn’t disappoint.

Whether it was the full moon or the beauty of the venue, but the crowd were buzzing and on their feet from the word go.

Consisting of 13 members, including three lead vocalists and a five-piece horn section, Al McKay and his ‘All Stars’ provided 90 minutes of pure entertainment.

Their biggest hits, including Fantasy, Boogie Wonderland and Lets Groove, came towards the end when the 2,300 strong audience went nuts.

Indeed, it wasn’t long before I had gone through all my repertoire of disco moves from the 1970s and 1980s.

  1. E, W & F are great… I was at their concert a few years ago at Puente Romano. But talk about FREE disco concerts? This week by Marbella’s Tourist Office on the beachfront/Paseo, they had GREAT disco music played while the Water Polo competition took place…. The BG’s “Saturday Night Fever”… Joe Crocker’s “You Can Leave Your Hat On” from The Full Monte…Donna Summers… ETC.
    I enjoyed it from my terrace and even my Golden Retriever loved it – I think? To Marbella Ayuntamiento – THANKS & Ruff Ruff from Roqui!
