ALAN WHITE - Atlanta, GA (USA) Alan White started playing drums and DJ’ing at his own teenage nightclub called The Bop Shop in the basement of his house when he was just a teenager in 1956.
He began playing drums professionally as a member of Turk & the Party Cats from 1960-1963. After attending broadcasting school, Alan began up working as afternoon drive DJ at WHVW, Poughkeepsie, N.Y. in 1964. After playing the first Discotheque dance in America at Vassar College in 1964, Alan built the first Discotheque in America called The Rumpus Room in 1965 and thus became the first Disco DJ in the U.S.
He was a theatrical agent who booked both touring nightclub bands and recording artists at Paramount Artists Corporation in Washington, D.C. from 1966-1967 and at Action Talents in New York, 1968. In 1969 Alan moved to Philadelphia to make Disco records with 1960’s recording star and former Dovells lead singer, Len Barry. The results were the first ever Disco records, released in 1969, including the first Disco hit, The Electric Indian’s 1969 instrumental hit “Keem-O-Sabe”. In all Alan was involved as agent, producer, co-producer and/or manager of dozens of recording artists throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s.
In 1975 Alan was a part of Maury Povich’s Washington, D.C. TV show, Panorama, the night that the idea for the movie Saturday Night Fever was born. He toured the east coast with this nightclub Disco shows throughout the 1970’s, eventually settling in Atlanta, Georgia and headlining Jeryl’s, the top disco in Atlanta throughout the Disco era. Since then Alan has remained in Atlanta appearing at nightclubs throughout the area. He was the host and co-producer of the Late Night Atlanta TV show.
He is the Swing DJ’s Hall of Fame and has received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Disco Association.
