The 70’s was a very, very funk time to be alive. Disco, funk and Motown were all the Jazz in this decade. With some very smooth and soulful cats hitting the clubs, this was the latest crave to be taking the dance floors by storm. John Travolta’s Saturday Night Fever was a box office hit and off the back off that success – artists like the Bee Gee’s grew to international stardom, touring and travelling the world, spreading this new genre of music – Funk and Disco.
