Once again, we’re made up to be spinning tunes to soundtrack an afternoon of supping craft beers and cider at Blackwoods Scouts Group Annual Beer Festival on Saturday 9th July ’16.
We’ll be dropping a massive selection of tunage from 2pm to 8pm-ish. Expect all sorts of nuggets and plenty of sonic surprises too. The beer fest goes on until late that evening so hang around to watch the sunset and catch the evening’s entertainment. We’ll be posting more info on all that over at our Facebook page.
It’ll cost you just a few quid to walk in while kiddies get in for nought. That gets you a free beer fest glass to sip your ale from too. Bargain. All profits go towards funding Blackwoods’ activities over the next year.
See ya’s there. Hope it’s proper sunny, people.
Big shout out to everyone who got well stuck into our Post Punk Disco sesh at Rough Trade Nottingham on Friday 29th April.
Fab night, people. Hoping to do it all again soon-ish. We’ll keep you posted on that. Before then, come keep us company at RTN on Saturday 28th May for an afternoon of Beats ‘n’ Treats between 3pm and 7pm. Always a nice slot. Hope to see you.

Crackin’ night. Big shout out to everyone who bopped ’n boozed with us at The Lord Roberts. Good to see you. Even bigger hugs to our DirtyDiscoJamm hardcore who just keep coming back for more. Appreciate your support, people. Honestly.
What now? The Lord Roberts as we know it shuts on 30th September. Many thanks to Shaun and his pub crew for looking after us this last six months. We’ll try to find a new home for our DirtyDiscoSoundsystem parties so hopefully we’ll be back spinning early 2016.
Don’t forget – we’ve got a Saturday afternoon black wax residency thing happening at Rough Trade Nottingham. Our next sesh’s on 24th October then 28th November. Always fun spinning vinyl. Pop in to say hello, why doncha.
Of course. Cuts we dropped on y’all. Loads of big Jamm party fav’s in here:
Night Fever-Bee Gees (Luxury edit)//The Right Stuff-Noel Gallagher (Psychemagik edit)//Papa…-Temptations//Strange Games And Funky Things-Love Unlimited Orchestra//Love The Way You Love Me-Marti Caine//It’s Only Love Doing Its Thing-Barry White//Pay The Price-Stevo//Good Love-Issac Hayes//Sunday Morning People-Honey Cone//I Wanna Be With You-Doc Severinsen//Superstition-Stevie Wonder//The Vulture-Labi Siffre//A Case Of Too Much Love-Gloria Scott//Nothing But A Heartache-The Flirtations//I Gotcha-Joe Tex//Express Yourself-Charles Wright//Stone To The Bone-James Brown//Last Night Changed It All-Esther Williams//Its Great To Be Here-The Jackson 5//Disco Queen-Hot Chocolate//Do The Bus Stop-Fatback Band//Winner Takes All-Isley Brothers//I’ll Never Forget-Dexter Wansell//Shake Your Booty-KC And The Sunshine Band//You Should Be Dancing-Bee Gees//Let’s Go Around Again-Average White Band//Boogie Wonderland-Early, Wind And Wind//Gimme..-Abba//Alright-Jamiroquai//Heart Of Glass-Blondie//Grapevine Boogie-Leftside Wobble//Step It Up-Stereo MCs//Once In A Lifetime-Talking Heads//Too Blind to See-Kym Sims//Situation-Yazoo//This Is Radio Clash-The Clash//Love Can’t Turn Around-Farley Jackmaster Funk//Do You Wanna Funk-Sylvester//For What You Dream Of-Bedrock//24 Hour Party People-Happy Mondays//Rocks-Primal Scream//I Got A Feeling-Larse//Get Lucky-Daft Punk//Uptown Dinosaur-Was Not Was X Mark Ronson//Stuck In The Middle…-Stealers Wheel//Pull Up To The Bumper-Grace Jones//Back To Life-Soul2Soul//Loaded (Terry Farley edit)-Primal Scream
Sad news but we knew it was coming. The Lord Roberts Pub will be shutting its doors on 30th September for what could be a long time. Current manager Shaun and his crew will be leaving for good then too.
A new owner will take control eventually but the boozer’s friendly and open-minded vibe will be gone when the doors shut that last time. This is down to the pub’s landlord. Shaun’s tried to work something out to keep The Lord Roberts running as it is now but they refused.
We’ll soon be looking for a new home for our parties. But we’re still having our early autumn #DirtyDiscoJamm party downstairs on The Lord Roberts’ final weekend. But we want it to be a night to remember so we won’t be charging you to get in. Cost ya’s zip so more cash for tipples. May chuck in some balloons too.
We really hope you can join us on Saturday 26th September for a boogie in the “disco” basement to help celebrate Shaun and his crew’s last few days plus say a sad goodbye too.
Bank holiday weekend init, so we’re made up to be spinnin’ sweet disco ‘n classic pop tunes at The Lord Roberts this Saturday night from 9pm-ish.
Just after our all-vinyl Beats ‘n Treats session at Rough Trade Nottingham. Gonna a frisky day, alright.
We’ll be in the main bar space. Nice change. So don’t forget to say hello on your way to grab a tipple. Be nice to see you.
We’re truly gutted to say this but our #PrideJamm after-party at The Lord Roberts on Saturday 25th July has been cancelled due to health and safety concerns on punter numbers from Nottingham City Council licensing people. Nice of them.
They’ve instructed Shaun and his pub crew to rigidly cap people numbers during their day long Nottinghamshire Pride celebrations. And they’ve killed our after-party DJ slot too. We’ve tried to address all their concerns but they’re just not budging.
So what does this now mean? The Lord Roberts is still a fab place to celebrate Notts Pride on Saturday but we won’t be spinning tunes to give it a celebratory disco party vibe.
We’re trying to sort a post-Pride party there in the near future to make up for it. We’ll keep you posted on that one.
Before then, do have a bleedin’ good time on Saturday if you’re joining in the Notts Pride fun. And don’t forget to say hello if you see us having a few cheeky beers at The Lord Roberts that night…
