A Party for Doc

Doc Dances

Wednesday 18th March

It was with much sadness that we learnt of the passing last Friday of DocRedWater – known to us simply as ‘Doc’.

Various venues across the grid will he holding some celebrations of his life and we’d like to be one of them.  On Sunday 22nd March (from 12 til 2pm Slt) The Lola & Lyndka show at ShenaniganS will have a 50’s music theme in honour of Doc – if you’re lucky to own one of Docs hats then please wear it or wear something that you feel Doc would have found ‘appropriate’. click for more

Harry Hargreaves first show @ Shenanigans

Harry Hargreaves

It’s never an easy thing to do – follow another act onstage and do your ‘thing’ and even more difficult when it’s your first show at a new venue but last night Harry Hargreaves pulled it off admirably.

Harry’s “mission” was to follow Rod Hyx on stage and entertain the crowd that Rod usually attracts – from the first notes of the opening song drifting acrosss the stream it became apparent we were in for an evening of soul. Harry played a surprisingly varied menu of songs and didn’t stick with the well known ‘classics’ – he delved in to Northern Soul and played a couple of numbers by Wigan’s Ovation (have a click if you’ve not heard the name – it’s worth a listen). click for more

Dj Cort owner of Crazy Diamondz plays Wednesdays

Cort gets foxy

More guests are visiting the cafe and remarking how lovely the build is at ShenaniganS and are hanging around to enjoy the ambience and music.

One of our first visitors as we completed the build was our friend Cort who owns Crazy Diamondz (the venue where we’ve played our weekly shows since before last Christmas).

Cort has been DJ’ing some sessions at her own club as a ‘fill in’ and when we asked her to do a session for us – she nearly fell off her chair in shock!

Like all good idea’s though – it took root and eventually blossomed, so this week she said “Yes!” and has agreed to do a session each Wednesday from 12 til 2pm SLT (or from 8pm til 10pm UK time) and will also bring with her from Crazy’s, her friend and host Evan. click for more

We’re pleased to announce our first live Musician

Rods 1st gig

It gives us great pleasure to announce that beginning on Thursday 19th February, ShenaniganS will play host to our first live musician – Rod Hyx from 11am SLt til noon. We hope you’ll enjoy his style and come to all his shows with us and tip him (and us) heavily.

Rod will be streaming over the parcel so either come dance in the barn or cosy up to someone special in the Glade, our new bit of land or you could just sit at one of the cafe tables and listen. Whichever you choose, we’d love to see you here click for more
