Need we say more about this ad taken from "The Voice" magazine circa 1981? A definite sign of the times! Well OK, one thing: Going by the many typos in this ad it would appear that the typesetter had not sampled the "sustained intellectual effort" that these "Black Beauty's" offered!


This poster beautifully captures the mood of a Black Party from this time period. The theme would be dark in a magical and mystical way, intensely exotic, sexy and mysterious, oooooh!

The famed Black Party at the Trocadero Transfer was the favorite of many. Intense, Intense, Intense, was the look, sound and feel. The music would be haunting and delicious with a twist. The atmosphere would take on the essence of the season with bountiful tables of delicious treats to add to the festivities and did we say, intense?

For this particular event, we recall DJ Michael Lewis mixing Pamala Stanley's "This Is Hot" into Patrick Cowley's remix of "I Feel Love" by Donna Summer. Needless to say the crowd went wild! It was rare to have DJ's Michael Lewis and Craig Morey play together during the entire evening but as was said of the night, "They were flawless!" Add to the mix the incredible theatrical lighting of "Unit" (Jim Feldman), who put every cue and nuance in place to give the musical trip the true feel of a Trocadero Transfer Black Party. Ooooh, girl. We got the chills just thinkin' about it!


This is the letter head of the envelope mailed to the lucky few Troc members who would receive a poster as well as an invitation for each of the larger Troc events. How exciting to find this in your mail box! The thrill of anticipation felt while peeking into the large envelope to see what was inside was like opening up a gorgeously wrapped gift! The latest poster would always be sure to elicit an "Oooh, Wow!"
