Your Deejays

Kevin Johansen - Already a Rivoli regular deejay at the packed Northern Soul Nights. Kevin started to collect the jazz dance music around 1985 and moved to London in 1987 and became a regular at Upstairs at The Wag on the regular Monday jazz nights dancing to deejays like Sylvester and Gilles Peterson. When the legendary Sunday afternoon sessions at Dingwalls started he became a regular there until it shut.

He will be providing the sixties and seventies Bossa and Mambos along with the organ grooves.

Ian Dewhirst - In 1977 Ian was at the top of the Northern Soul tree having residencys at Wigan Casino and Cleethorpes but he was getting priced out of buying the records. He got on a plane to Los Angeles to find them himself with help from his friend Simon Soussan. Whilst out there he was going to the top soul/funk clubs and produced a record by Shalamar.Back in Britain he met Paul Schofield in Jumbo records in Leeds and got into buying the latest Jazz Funk releases. This led him to his residency at Leeds Central and all-dayers at Blackpool Mecca, Manchester Ritz, Nottingham Palais and Birmingham Locarno. In the eighties he was the compiler of the classic Jazz Funk Mastercuts series of lp's. Ian will be sticking to the classic jazz funk cuts.

This is definitely going to be a night to remember
