Nicky Siano is the last surviving pioneer of the 70’s dance music scene. He is the only person left who was there at the very beginning, remaining relevant and involved through the 70‘s – in the decade of the disco explosion & as a resident at STUDIO 54. Nicky’s first job playing records was at New York’s famed club THE ROUND TABLE in 1972. In 1973, at the age of 17, he opened/designed and was the DJ at THE GALLERY,
