The 'Galaxy Classics Party' is hosted by John Lommers
John Lommers, who is also known as "Bad Motherfunker," began his career as a DJ at the age of 12 at his local soccer club. Remarkably, he constructed his own speakers, DJ set, and FM transmitter at such a young age. In 1980, at only 15 years old, John was given a significant opportunity to work as a light jockey at the Discotheater Galaxy in Den Bosch. This experience working alongside DJs such as Robin Albers, Arjen de Gram, Svenno Koemans, Jan van Son, and Joep Gersjes fueled his ambition to become a DJ himself.
Four years later, in 1984, John was given the opportunity to DJ at Galaxy himself, starting with Sunday afternoons, eventually filling in on weekends, and eventually becoming one of the resident DJs. He went on to play at other clubs such as Broadway (Erp), De Rodenburg (Beesd), and Toys (Uden). John expanded his DJing work to include large national roadshows for Veronica, Tros Popformule drive-in shows, and Philips Moving Sound Sound shows. He also has a deep passion for radio and worked for several years at stations in Amsterdam (Extra 108) and Belgium (Fantasy FM).
In addition, John Lommers, is the organizer of the annual club event Galaxy Classics Party, which has been held since 2012.

Charly Boelhouwers is a studio maestro, renowned for his exceptional talent in blending soul, funk, and disco classics into harmonious and inspiring mixes. With a career marked by collaborations with major radio stations, Charly has established himself as a luminary in the world of music production. After a brief hiatus, he has made a triumphant return to the scene.

During the 1980s, he was a guest DJ at multiple clubs in South Holland and North Brabant, and he had a steady gig at a club in Sliedrecht. He also created beats for a hip-hop band and, together with two mates, presented a progressive dance show on the local radio in Papendrecht every Wednesday night.
Johan Duivesloot (producer)
His musical journey began in 1983, ignited by a deep affection for disco music. Initially, he explored this genre through the Soulshow and later through the works of Ben Liebrand. In the early 1990s, I started DJing in youth centers, eventually transitioning to drive-in shows where I specialized as a mix DJ, primarily blending pop tracks. This chapter spanned approximately five years. Subsequently, from 1990 to 1995, I played at a bar-dancing venue. My experience further expanded with seven years of radio shows on stations such as radioAM5, Dreamstreamradio Rotterdam, and 24Disco.nl. These shows, known as 'The Disco & Funk Show' with Johan Duivesloot, continue to be a part of my endeavors to this day.
