Tony Davis | 90s Rave
Tony captured the legendary rave nights held by Nottingham’s DiY free-party collective at the Marcus Garvey centre and many other venues around the city. Clubs such as The Kool Kat, Venus and also The Eclipse in Coventry.

It was a magical time when people were fully immersed in the moment, no mobile phones, selfies or checking yourself in on Facebook. Just pure love and hedonism for the music. A recent comment left on Tony’s Instagram page summed it up “It was a time when you went clubbing and left your ego at home”
