Derby Rolls Royce All-dayer 23/3/08

Recommended Posts

440 paying punters thru the door and both rooms packed to the rafters.....

I spent all night in the modern room where every DJ played a blinding set.

Looks like this format will be repeated again for the second May bank holiday.....and again for August....

Anyone from here manage to share in this amazing night?

Yep, certainly did Chris. Got to agree with you, all the sets by the DJ's in the 70's / modern room were superb. It would be good reading the playlists as some fabulous music was played, from funk, crossover, 70's dancers and the very latest modern, all mixed up and making a great pot of music. I was stunned by how many people were there and that people had come specifically for the 70's room, not just stragglers from the northern room having a curious look waiting to hear Ace Spectrum or Drizabone. Some teething problems with the mixing desk causing grief for the DJ's with feedback, but that can easily be sorted for next time. It was my first time at the Rolls Royce, and as a venue it has got to be one of the best on the scene. Although I didn't spend time in the Northern room, the room itself was fantastic. Not too big and cavernous but more like a big nightclub, and the music sounded great in there. All the guys involved with the all dayer must be very pleased with how it went. Looking forward to the next.

The best all dayer by far at Rolls Royce,in my humble opinion.Lots of positve comments on the night and it was great to see people who had not been before having a good time and saying what a smashing venue it was. Music in northern room was excellent as my feet told me on Sunday morning! A big thanks to all the Dj's in both rooms for what was for many a thoroughly enjoyable all dayer. See you all next time :lol:

Well it was our first time at the Rolls Royce, and have to say that we were,nt to impressed with the venue itself(to clubby for our liking). The dancefloor (big yes) but it was way too slippy,and yet some were still using talc :lol: music was fine..... thumbsup.gif apart from them playing some modern in the northern room!! And yet there was a seperate room to accomodate for that!! :lol: Also it was way too packed,and i did hear a lot of other peeps say so too!! We all thought it should have been a ticket event of a limited number. :lol:
