Calling all true blue Retro fans.

Now you can roll back the years to listen to your favourite numbers of yesteryear at the Grand Retro Party 2019 to be held at the Impiana Hotel Ipoh on Saturday, November 9, 2019 from 7.30pm onwards.

The celebrity deejays performing will showcase their skills and showmanship to play vinyl records on turntables to enthrall the audience.

Many music lovers in the current era would not be privy to the fact that music was once played via vinyl records before cassettes, discs and the the present gizmos came in.

What is outstanding is the all deejays numbering eight of them with several of them being legends in the industry.

Leading the pool is led by DJ Shah who had started in career at the Palm Groove Disco at the former Royal Casuarina Hotel (presently Impiana Hotel). 

Shah is now a entrepreneur and hotelier in Cherating.

Next is DJ S Louis aka Louis the Maestro and founder of the Ipoh International Fashion Week (IIFW).

The proceeds from the IIFW to be held in Oct will go to the needy children at the Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

This is followed by DJ KT Pillai cum popular emcee and President of the Toastmasters Club Ipoh. 

He has been in the industry for more than 25 years and is a popular figure at premium private and social events.

The list continues with DJ John Sham (ex Palm Groove and ex RMAF fighter jet pilot), DJ Harry (Owner of the former Slippery Senoritas Club Penang), DJ Albert and DJ Soulrocka.

“We are still getting calls from former deejays from the Palm Groove era who want to participate in the event.

“We might just end up having many more deejays for the night. We welcome them, as the event is planned just to bring people down memory lane and have a good time,” added Pillai.

He also added that the event is also to portray Ipoh’s vibrant past where people like to dress up out for a night of clean fun and camaraderie.

The private function will also screen some of the profiles of the deejays on the big screen before the event proper.

Meanwhile, Impiana Hotel’s food and beverage team will set up the stall concept outlets to feature their food ranging from hotdog, fries, sandwiches, fried mee mamak, keuy teow, chicken wings, prawn fritters, fried spring rolls, vegetarian fried rice, fried sausages with chilli, commando chips, chicken shawarma and fresh fruits at only RM10 per platter.
