Silent Disco: Quietly invading Boston
“Silent disco? What the hell is that?”
Avid silent disco-goers are all too familiar with this question.
So… what is it?
“Silent disco is a new way to experience live music” says George Gayl, co-founder of the event and provider of Silent Storm Sound System.
At a silent disco event everyone is provided with a pair of wireless headphones upon entry.
Through these headphones stream the live music being performed by the DJ or artist of the evening. Each pair of headphones comes equipped with a volume control knob and a mute button. Want to rock out? Crank your volume up! Want to talk to your friends? Hold the mute button down.
OK, so get it? Still skeptical? “Try it, you’ll probably love it. We love converting skeptics,” says Gayl.
