San Francisco has a diverse disco scene that often crosses over but not often enough! The goal of Go BANG! is to bring the crews and their devoted dancers together in a mixed, diverse, exciting environment, with a nod to the diversity and freedom of the 70's/80's San Francisco/New York/Chicago disco nightlife!
Disco freaks, art school boys & girls, drag queens & kings, boogie-heads, fierce dancers, flashy dressers, sexy girls, hot boys, DJs, dancers, photographers, artists, fashionistas; gay/straight/bi/tri/whateva! Bring your flashiest, trashiest, classiest, sexiest, craziest style; but bring an open mind, big smile, and shoes that will allow you to dance from opening to last call! We will start with fire and end with fire!
Taking inspiration from the classic Dinosaur L. song

Adrian Santos was born and raised in New York City, starting to DJ in the early 70's in NY before moving to San Jose, California in 1978. There, he opened Disco Boston, the first East Coast-style dance club. In 1980, Santos began a six year stint at The Silk's in Emeryville. Silk’s was a legendary black afterhours dance club where he played ‘til the sun came up. In 1986 Santos moved to the Trocadero Transfer in San Francisco, playing House and R&B through 1987.
Santos was a Top-Rated Billboard R&B reporter on the West Coast and Director of the Badda Record Pool. He has received of many plaques and Gold Records for breaking several classic songs of the day including "Genius of Love" by Tom Tom Club, "Beat Box" by Art of Noise, "Thinking About Your Love” by Skipworth & Turner, and D-Train’s “Play at Your Own Risk.” He is also the former owner of legendary Star Records in San Jose.
Santos created the first mix show - "Saturday Night Silk's Party" - on the legendary KDIA – which targeted the local African-American audience. This paved the way for FM Urban Stations to start their own mix show. Later, Santos was a Guest Mixer on KMEL in San Francisco.
