Wotcha. We’ve been out ’n about a bit lately and there’s more to come too.

First off, cheeky thanks to everyone who bopped ’n hung out at The Angel Microbrewery on 5th May. Punk Post Disco vibe, that night. Steaming time, folks. We’re back there again on Friday 2nd June. Mixed Crate Disco sesh pulling in all sorts of cuts.

We made up to be back at Rough Trade Nottingham on Saturday 20th May. Early doors beats ’n treats family friendly 2 ’til 6 sesh. Dropping all sorts. Been nearly two years since our first slot in the cafe bar space so we’ve chuffed to be still spinning there. Nods to Kyle and his crew for their ongoing support. Nice one.

Here’s a new one too. We’ve been asked to spin tunes at Sherwood Art Week’s Secret Garden Fair on Saturday 24th June. If you’ve ever been you’ll know the format. We’ll be playing rock ’n’ roll, r ’n’ b, jazz and more from 11am till 6pm. Hope it’s sunny that day.

Maybe see you soon, then.
