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.

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…
