One of the most liberating things about silent disco is that you can take the party anywhere. On a warm summer evening in Boston in 2010, the stars aligned and Silent Disco & Pub Crawl had a baby. We slapped that baby on the bum, thew on some silent disco headphones and named it ‘mobile clubbing’. On this glorious day, a group of about 30 party people embarked on the World’s First Silent Disco Pub Crawl in the WORLD!
We decided to hit up Boston’s Faneuil Hall – infamous for its tourism and Top 40 DJs. Despite the less-than-desirable music and overwhelmingly obnoxious loose women & dude-guy patrons at night, Quincy Market is an awesome destination for some daytime bar hopping – especially when you can bring your own soundtrack everywhere you go.
Everyone had an absolute blast. Our group doubled in size at every pit stop we made. People gravitated towards our dancing energy and we had plenty of silent disco headsets for them to join in on the fun.
Want to host your own Silent Disco Pub Crawl? Here’s what you’ll need:
- Silent Disco Equipment (headphones & transmitter)
- Portable power source / battery pack
- MP3 player loaded with your favorite dance tracks (or 2 for both channels)
Shake it all up and you got yourself a traveling silent disco circus!
Here’s a video from our pit stop in the Boston Commons. Everyone who walked by slowed down to watch us dancing in apparent silence and we couldn’t resist getting them all involved!
Here are a few videos from one of our pitstop at the Rose Kennedy Greenway water fountain. We were even accompanied by Amelia Andrade, a Brazilian News Reporter from BTN!
As you can see, we don’t really have any videos of us in the bars themselves because as you know the crawl itself is
half most of the fun! You can see more photos on facebook.
Is there a great bar crawl area with bad music in your city? Got any other fun ideas for mobile clubbing?
