hits through the years


Shake is held in Camden’s famous Electric Ballroom on Saturday nights and regularly hosts 1500 people. It boasts three different rooms. The first being the main room with its selection of 80’s, 90’s, and current chart hits. This room has a great atmosphere with everybody just getting down to the tunes being played. The next is upstairs and plays the best of garage and old skool - featuring DJ Groover. Lastly, there is a great chillout room for when it all gets a bit too much. An amazing night out.

Bring And Share

Bring & Share is a monthly one-nighter hosted from what could be an abandoned living room above a pub. The concept is that you create the soundtrack for the night. It works with an ingenious INBOX and OUTBOX system where the DJ is given a totally random eclectic mix of records provided by a crowd armed with their bedroom vinyl. The result is a diverse and unpredictable DIY soundtrack - a place where Blondie gets into bed with the Sugar Hill Gang and the Eurythmics share the limelight with the White Strips. The type of night that invites you to make friends with the DJ - a kind of interaction with the night that you won't get anywhere else. Bring and Share: The Enterprise, 2 Havestock Hill, Chalk Farm, London NW3. Tube: Chalk Farm. For dates see www.bringandshare.co.uk
