PLEASED TO MEET YOU
ROCK N BLUES IS THE NATURE OF MY RAVE

Calling Midnight Ramblers to the club for a night of tumbling remixes and edits of The Rolling Stones and like-minded cats. Not to mention some solid hat-tipping to the blues originators of modern music as we know it, all distorted through a disco guitar pedal.

This is the joint where analogue weaves with electronic music in a cheeky tangle. The originals will always be perfection, without a doubt, but where’s the challenge in playing the greatest hits? We’re just jamming in the disco and bringing these sounds back to where they belong. A darker place where you can feel a little high, loose and dance your way to some much-needed emotional rescue.

Dress-code:
Durable stage wear with double-stitched crotch seams, Carnaby Flower, Savile Row renegade, Fedoras and Guy-liner, Studio 54 realness, glitter pirate, scarves for days…

Sympathy for the Disco: Portland Launch Party
Remixes and edits of the Stones, peppered with tracks from a few like-minded cats.

Gimme a night of rolling remixes
Gimme riffs and bass.
Gimme beats and a dance floor
and I’ll give you a 12 bar rave.
Licks, tricks n’ struttin’ round.
As Keith says: it’s music for the neck down.

We suggest:
Swagger like Mick,
Pack a little Keith magic in your pocket,
Bring your Ronnie sense of humour,
Turn up on time like Bill,
Don’t over-do it like Brian (RIP),
And always be a gentleman like Charlie.
Rock out but don’t forget the roll.
And…
Keep the band together.
