CANCELLED GIG: SATURDAY 2nd JANUARY

Apologies for such short notice but the new Irish Club management left it until 30th December to inform us that they had double-booked both the upstairs and downstairs rooms! We are seeking assurances that this won't happen again, so until further notice it's the first Saturday of the month like it has been for 24 years!

NEXT GIG: SATURDAY 6th FEBRUARY: IT'S THE DELAYED NEW YEAR'S KNEES-UP!

We've introduced a format change to kick off 2021 - for the last 12 months or so DJs have played the last hour to only a handful of dancers, also the club management  have indicated that it's not cost effective to keep staff on when bar sales are negligible. The obvious solution is to close at midnight SO BE EARLY! 

Your DJs will be, in no particular order...

Al Taylor

Keith Collett

Disco Denny

Boyne Callanan

Steve Hibbert

FUTURE DJ ROSTER

As usual, please let me know if you can't make your slots....
