Good lord, it's our birthday soon. Let's throw a party

For the people, by the people...

So after a massive 13th Birthday Party, a truly epic NYE party and a cracking little free party we decided that Easter needed a makeover, there was too much low quality chocolate and not enough disco!!! We've decided to fix that by asking one of the members of Crazy P to head down and drop some high quality tunes at our Easter party on bank holiday Sunday 1st April at The Maze in Nottingham.

Ron Basejam, aka Crazy P keyboardist Jim Baron, is a legendary DJ and producer having released tracks on Wolf Music, Delusions of Grandeur & Winding Road as well as remixing The White Lamp, Fouk , Hot Toddy and obviously Crazy P.

As it's a Bank Holiday Sunday we're running slightly earlier than usual 9pm - 2am.

Support comes from Wrighty & Mark A

Advance tickets:

Early Birds Tickets:- SOLD OUT
Advance Tickets:- £8
On The Door:- £10

Big love to The Lofthouse, Nottingham

We learned of some rather sad news recently that The Lofthouse has decided to close it’s doors. We were fortunate enough to put on 3 Soul Buggin’ parties at the venue (Dego / Ray Mang / Chris Duckenfield) and boy oh boy what parties they were. We’ve hosted events at quite a few places over the past 12 years or so but The Lofthouse felt very special to us, definitely had that warehouse type feel and in many respects reminded us our glory days at the much missed Moog bar when it came down to the magical vibe it created for our parties. We’ll have many warm memories of The Lofthouse as it was such a great venue where like minded souls could come, dance and escape the usual madness of the streets below. It will be greatly missed by us (and many of you we imagine) but we wish them well in their future endeavours.

Our recent party was the very last night the venue played host to and as luck would have it we recorded it all.
