Here is Aloha Record's float from, we believe, 1982. Five of the people in this image are known to have worked at Aloha (Ralph B., Tom M., Steven P., Ed R. and Donald G.).

Aloha Records was the favorite shopping place for all the wonderful music that was played at the Trocadero and the other clubs with up to the minute music. The staff there was well known for being able to name that song in 3 notes! For many of us, Aloha Records was where you went to learn about the cool music you were fortunate enough to have heard at the Troc. Many of the Aloha staff member's considered it their duty to attend Trocadero and note which songs where played and at what period of the night they were played.

No one ever left Aloha Record with out that latest "got to have It" record.


Trocadero Transfer's 1986 float. On board are the wonderful DJ Bobby Viteritti, lighting wizard Jim Feldman ('Unit' to friends) and a dinosaur. Obviously trying to make a statement of how long the club had been around. The Trocadero never lost it's humor, one of the many facets that made it one of the greatest discothèques ever.



Here's a card from The Balcony, a place where many Trocladytes would visit after a party. Note the fallen C, this reflected the fact that the sign outside the bar had a loose C on the sign and nobody fixed it. Later the C fell down on it's own accord and the club was then known as Balony! After all the other letters were taken down someone found the C and put it back up. Then the bar was simply known as The C, how festive is that?? There are many stories about happenings at the Balcony, we invite anyone with memories of this infamous place to send 'em in for inclusion here.


Here's the Trocadero Transfer dancefloor 1988, the Crew Party. DJ Steve Fabus (or Steve Fabulous as we called him) is at the helm in the DJ booth in this picture. Does anyone recognize any of the faces in this crowd?

DJ Steve Fabus and producer Ron Baer were holding events at Dreamland at 715 Harrison on Sundays for Brit Hahn . During this time Brit took over the Troc from Dick Collier so he could hold Saturday night events there.

Brit and Ron brought Steve in to deejay at the Troc. and Steve brought in Gus Bean to work with Ron. Gus and Ron co-produced the night with the first half called "Hero" and the second half (after-hours) called "Crew". Gus soon took over the whole night as "Crew".

Steve continued to play there on Saturday nights for Gus with deejays Dave Moss and Hosh Gurelli. Steve comments, "The club had a number of different names during this time, but it will always be the Trocadero Transfer".

Historical note: "Crew" was Gus's first big club event, it was an overnight success. Gus was only in his early twenties at this time. To this day he is still producing many successful major events around the city.
