*Joey from Blossom voice* Woah! Did you know that DJs Jeff Pineau and Trevor Murphy (Quiet Parade) have been bringing Halifax one of the most nostalgic dance events, That 90s Night, since July 2012? *Jesse from Full House voice* Have mercy!  Well, it's true and it's giving me Goosebumps. Tonight at The Seahorse, they're gonna hit you baby, one more time

"Musically, we stick to the overarching theme of just playing 90s jams," Pineau and Murphy tell me, "From time to time, we'll throw a theme party — like the Saved By The Bell Beach Party or Neon Night — but that's more about atmosphere and it doesn't really have any impact on the music we choose. We're 90s kids, so we have both a nostalgia and a fondness for a lot of these songs. Never really thought we'd be so psyched about S Club 7 when we were 14, but here we are."

To get you pysched for this next nostalgia trip, we're quizzing Pineau and Murphy on their favourite things from the 90s. There's nothing like a Big Shiny Tunes 2 & 3 down memory lane.
