We still believe "It's all about the vinyl ! "
SNEAKERS 54 - How we began

Sneakers 54 was established in 1976 when a group of friends got together and decided they had to do something about the lack of good West end clubs that played Jazz,Funk & Soul music. They found that in order to gain entry into clubs they would need to dress in suits, pay extortionate entrance fees, and then on top of all this, listen to pop music for hours until the DJ decided to play the odd Soul tune at the end of the night.


Our next move was to hire venues in the West End and hold our own club nights playing the music we loved. The nights became more regular and we soon built up a following that had been looking for the same things as us;  they wanted to listen and dance to the best in Jazz, Funk & Soul in a friendly and safe environment.


We decided to name ourselves Sneakers 54 after the classic Jazz-Funk track by Sea  Level , the one track which closely resembled the spectrum of music we most enjoy and play at our club nights.

And we still believe's all about the vinyl !


SNEAKERS 54 - Today

Due to popular demand we're back .... playing the best in Jazz, funk &Soul from the 70's/80's plus some of the classier tunes released recently.  

We organise parties in central London at approximately 3 month intervals to provide a reunion for our friends who have supported us and partied with us over the years.  Our aim is to provide regular club nights for like minded people who wish to have a good night out a few times a year with the guarantee of great music.

  Our club nights always have a warm friendly atmosphere and we've had some very positive feedback on all our events.
