Time for a new post – I know it’s been too long, but I actually mean I have time for a new post, so better crack on.
Things are moving at such a pace that most weekends are becoming something of a blur! At the end of August, Bank Holiday weekend was a particularly full few days.
Firstly Razzmatazz was another busy night – for the first time at it’s new home, The Ritz in Queen Street, Penzance. Falmouth Indie-epic-rock outfit Lonely Hunters played a blinder. The next Razzmatazz is on Friday 23rd September. Watch out for details soon of this month’s live treat.

The following night saw a packed Toast getting down to some serious electro-house and breaks – DDJ style! This night gets better and bigger every time, and I’ll be back monthly for the rest of the year – see the Gig Guide for details.
As if that wasn’t enough excitement for one weekend, Sunday was Party in the Park in the beautiful gardens of Trereife House in Penzance. I played all afternoon between the bands, and despite being cut short by a power failure had a great time. Keep an eye out for video footage of my appearance with The Surgeons too!
What a night this turned out to be. I had the honour of opening with a tight set of funky breaks, then the guys soon ramped up the BPM and the temperature, with some blinding sets of house, breaks, techno and Drum ‘n’ Bass. The bar was heaving with dancing bodies and the event has been declared a resounding success. The BrapFM Social will be at No 51 every 2nd Friday from now on.
One last thing I must tell you about; I’m delighted to have been asked to be the Resident DJ at a new monthly dance night at the Ritz in Penzance. The night, “Step Back In Time” will feature a guest DJ each month, playing classic dance tunes from the last 40 years! Think funk, soul, old-skool house and electro just to scratch the surface. The first event will see the legendary Indian Billy joining me in the booth to spin a selection of choice choons . More on Facebook here.
I’m sure there’s more to tell, but I’m out of time for now. Looking forward, all roads lead to Birmingham NEC for the BPM Show – see the last post below for deets. Excited? Only a lot!!!
