Whether you have booked a venue or you are the DJ for the night in your own living room a disco ball will always add a little pizzazz to your event.

The mirror ball must be mounted as close to the ceiling as possible or it can simply hang from a T bar. A spotlight is then pointed in its direct line of fire. Switch on and spin! If the lights in the room are turned down and the area is darkened the visual effect will be incredible.

You and your guests will experience beams of light flashing all around and see myriad spots of light spinning around the walls of the room.

The glitter ball is true to its name in that it always seems to produce the magic touch that every dance party needs.

Here’s a little interesting information If you happen to be interested in the history of this iconic piece of technology:

Mirror balls, disco balls or glitter balls (all terms of reference for exactly the same thing) were first widely used in nightclubs in the 1920s.

One appears in a Berlin nightclub sequence in the silent film Die Sinfonie der Großstadt (1927), 50 years before Studio 54. Of course, they weren’t called disco balls until the 1970s and 1980s, when they were a ubiquitous piece of equipment in discotheques. They were simply called mirror balls because disco’s hadn’t been invented yet.

In the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, these devices were a standard piece of equipment in discotheques, and by the turn of the millennium, the name “disco ball” had grown quite popular.

The disco ball is an iconic party symbol that has been around for decades and will stay the center of every event for a long time to come. No party is complete without the dazzle and shine of a disco ball. Go on, make it a night to remember..
