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.

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…
We’e still buzzing a wee bit from our slowbeats #SaturdayJamm sesh at Wired Cafe Bar, Nottingham on 29th November!

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…
