AN event is taking place in The Abbey Inn on St Stephens Night which is definitely one for the dance music purists, with the legendary Mark Kavanagh and internationally renowned Tralee woman DJ Eibhlin, appearing at the venue.

Back in 1997, nightclubs in Tralee were still adjusting to the new reality that dance music was king among young people on a night out and playing chart hits and slow sets were becoming a thing of the past.

A few Tralee folk got together and decided to stage three huge dance music events under the ‘Janus’ moniker in locations just outside the town.

Two were held in Mountain Lodge out in Curraheen and one in the Earl of Desmond with hundreds packing out the venues on each occasion.

Well they’ve decided to get the ‘band’ back together for one night only with some of those who played the gigs 20 years ago reunited to celebrate the anniversary.

It’s a stellar line-up with Mark Kavanagh, DJ Eibhlín, Billy Nasty, Jonno Brien, Marq Walsh, DJ Stacky, John O’Loughlin and Jason Fitz playing tunes for the masses.

It kicks off pretty early in the evening at 7.30pm and continue until the wee hours. For tickets at €10 go to B-Mobile on Dominick Street.
