Looking To Launch A New Monthly Sheffield Event - Help Needed

Recommended Posts

Guest Ben01

Hi guys. We are looking to launch a monthly Northern/Motown Sunday day/night at a Sheffield City Centre Bar and was hoping that there may be some people who could point us in the right direction to get started. We have the bar, the sound setup and everything else needed to host the event but we need DJ's and/or people that can put the word out with us. If this is something that maybe you would like to get involved in or offer advice on then please get in touch.

 

Many thanks

 

Ben

please make it OVO so that the dj's who put a lot of time & effort obtaining our music get to play their

tunes at more places and help rid the world of bootleggers

That's just what's needed in Sheffield another venue !!!!

 

You will now be able to have a Proper Pub Crawl with Soul . Imagine how pissed you would be at the end of the night. 

 

Happy Days

Careful not to infringe on other promoters in the Steel city, there are maybe half a dozen established venues,

i suggest you check these out and/or visit them so as not to clash.

 

Cheers

Just to add to Nigel's list, the Rondevu is the 3rd Sunday (alternate months, as said). It looks like the 2nd Sunday is available, unless anyone knows different. There'll be plenty of local DJs happy to spin a few tunes for you, I reckon, but make it vinyl (at least), and OVO for personal preference. Roughly where in the city centre are you?

Cheers

John

Some promoters are looking into the "Lost Sunday" case. Apparently when the Mayans moved from the Haab to Tzolkin calendars ,they lost a Sunday. Tony Robinson (Time Team),is on the search with his team.

"If only we could locate the Lost Sunday",said Tony. " We could have re-runs of Midwives,and fit in another Sunday soul session "

Not many people are going to care in a city centre wine bar!

I'm sure there was a thread exactly the same as this posted up sometime in the last year  :g: I seem to remember being slagged off for suggesting the promoter was cynically jumping on the NS bandwagon, so I won't bother this time.

what ever you do, don't use existing dj's who work the other sundays, try and put something fresh together to make it yours, and not just a spin off of someone else's. try and bring your own identity to the scene, that way you might stand half a chance of doing well. all the best with it, whatever route you decide to take  :thumbsup:

If it's for a younger crowd start with Brett and get the likes of PaulB and Adam L over or the Leeds lot who's names escape me due to my excitement at going to watch the Blades play Crewe. Sorry boys but I'm sure everyone' knows who I mean.

Northern and Motown are well catered for already.

A fair point, only the Rondevu is rare and underplayed OVO. The rest are oldies and Motown so far as i know.

I think that you'd be filling a much needed gap in the market, adding to the sparse city nightclub scene a rare and high quality opportunity to introduce frustrated music lovers to this currently neglected and little known field of music.

does that sound ridiculous? Like I'm playing opposites even?

there's your answer then.

Nonsense.

 

Everyone knows that the sign of a healthy scene is more nights than any one area can reasonably support, less cohesion, greater fragmentation and a proliferation of DJs with essentially similar tastes. In fact the greater number of clashes and least probability of maintaining a consistent and enduring scene the better. Anyone would think you don't believe in consumer choice.

Can you put that in Laymans terms please for the vast majority on here

Cheers :)

Maslow's hierarchy of needs has been adapted to : health - safety - social acceptance - being a dj - self actualisation.

 

last time I heard some one quote maslows theory was on education for promotion course in army
