What a fab beer festival that was, and the weather held out too!
Massive shout outs to everyone who got stuck our #BeerFestJamm vibe. Glad you liked the tunes, people. Special nods to all the Blackwoods Scouts crew for letting us soundtrack their very big afternoon. We had a crackin’ time playing for everyone. We’ll be back in 2016. For sure.

Made up to say we’ll be spinning tunes to soundtrack an afternoon of supping craft beers, ciders and wines at Blackwoods Scouts Group Annual Beer Festival on Saturday 16th May ’15.
We’ll be dropping a massive selection of songs between 2pm and 7pm. Expect all sorts and a few surprises too.
The beer fest goes on until late that evening so hang around to watch the sunset and the evening’s entertainment.
It’ll cost you just £3 to walk in and that gets you a free glass to sip your ale from too. Bargain. All profits from the event go towards funding Blackwoods’ activities over the next year.
Hope it’s sunny, people!
Cheese on toast! Our Jamm party on Saturday 21st March turned out to be a massive night.
Big messy shout out to all you lovely people for bopping and boozing the night away. Even got quite carried away ourselves. Needless to say we suffered the day after but in a good way.
Big bumps to Sean and The Lord Roberts crew for all their help. We’re hoping to do it all again in a few months time. Don’t fret, we’ll let you know all about it right here.

Not long now ’til our next DirtyDiscoJamm party in NG1, people.
Some of you have asked again “So, what’s it all about?”. Quick answer is we just wanna give people a fun night out. That’s it.
We know plenty of you are up for some booze and a boogie but don’t fancy the mess that’s some parts of town on a weekend – we don’t. So we’re having a stab at giving you and us that night out. The timings are babysitter-friendly if you got little ‘uns while The Lord Roberts’ good for cabs ’n buses (and dodgy post-party nibbles!).
The tunes are a massive part of our nights and we dig all sorts but lean towards that cuts will hopefully get people moving. Check out our mixtapes and past set lists for a taste. Some right bombs in there but we would say that…
And thanks for all your support. Some people have been with us since day one way back and it’s much appreciated.
Hopefully, we’ll keep the party going. We’re up for it, if you are…
Sorry, it took a wee bit longer than we wanted but we’ve bagged our next DirtyDiscoJamm party night.
Chuffed to say we’ll be back spinning choice cuts on Saturday 21st March downstairs at The Lord Roberts, Broad Street, NG1. Usual time – 8pm ’till late. Door tax is just £2.50. Bargain.
Yep, it’s an-new Jamm party space in Hockley. We had a fab time at The Peacock but fancied a change. We think The Lord Roberts is an ace party space and sure you will too. Hope to see you that night… Dave // Sam xxx
We’e still buzzing a wee bit from our slowbeats #SaturdayJamm sesh at Wired Cafe Bar, Nottingham on 29th November!
Here’s what we dropped. Some stuff we’ve played out before and loads we haven’t. If you were there, we hoped you enjoyed it. And if you weren’t, we hope to see you next time…

So sorry, folks! Due an almighty cock up by The Peacock pub crew (they double booked the piddlin’ room!), we’re now having our next #DirtyDiscoJamm party on Saturday 11th October ’14.
We know from talking to many people they were gearing up for our party on 27th September. We’re as disappointed as anyone else but it’s one of those annoying things that’s outside our control.
That said, you can still expect very nice people, some boozy tipples and sweet tunes to boogie to from 8:30pm til late on 11th October. And it’s just a budget busting £2.50 on the door too. Same place as always: upstairs at The Peacock, Nottingham, NG1.
Sorry again for any aggravation the change of date may cause you. Hope you can still make it…
We’re well chuffed to say we’re having another #VinylJamm sesh downstairs at The Peacock, NG1 on Saturday 20th September ’14.
Same sweet vinyl groove: disco, funk ’n soul nuggets all on juicy black wax. Crackles ‘n all. Plus a few cheeky sonic surprises.
Tunes start at 8pm (’til late) and being downstairs it’s zip to walk in and enjoy. Do come. Be nice to see ya’s.
Wotcha. Some quick news. We’ve decided to bring forward our next #dirtydiscojamm party by a week to Saturday 27th September.
Sorry for any arse-ache caused but we’ve got so much going at DirtyDisco HQ that something had to give.
But we really want to keep the #dirtydiscojamm party going, so Saturday 27th September it is. Same place: upstairs at The Peacock, NG1. Same time: 8:30pm ’til late. Watch out for our updated flyers coming very soon.
Hope you can make it.
