Modesty's Brighton August Bank Holiday Special will, of course, be returning to the Downstairs Club, Al Duomo's on Saturday 29th August, which will see the return from last year of the wonderful Mike Warburton (MG Blues), joining residents Colin Baldock, Lucas Gomersall and myself. We are very happy to announce that rising star Jake Bonnici will be playing some of his amazing collection (although, hopefully, not "Mr. Blobby”) and following last years  triumphant set by Paul Hallam,  the wonderful Richard "Shirly" Early has graciously agreed to continue the “Sneakers legends” theme with some tunes to fill the dancefloor.

As proved so popular last year, those lovely young people at Fast Way Of living will be taking over the venue for a Bank Holiday Welcome Party on Friday 28th August, where I will once again be joining Lucas Gomersall behind the decks along with top DJs & two of my favourite young people Jodie Richardson & Callum Sammon, and this year we are pleased to be joined by the legend that is Dave Edwards (Sidewinder etc.), and travelling all the way from Spain to spin some tunes for you lucky people, we are privileged to welcome Alvaro Rubio Romo.

In further exciting news ... the venue will once again be opening the upstairs bar to us on both nights from 11 (& piping the music up there) to avoid the bar issues from some previous years and as a chill out area for those of us that need an occasional sit down (none of us are as young as we once were), They have also promised us that both aircon units will actually be fully functional on both nights, this time :)

Tickets for each night will be £10 and will go on general sale in late March or early April but as a special deal for early birds you can have tickets for both nights for just £16 by paypal (as Friends/Family) to modestybrighton@outlook.com

PLEASE NOTE … The special “Early Bird deal” will only be available until 1st April (£18 for both nights thereafter), and both nights are expected to sell out early as they did last year …. “So don't be late, don't hesitate!”

All the very best and hope to see you there

PS ... PLEASE don't forget to include your postage details so I can send your tickets out !!!

Due to the success of our Sell Out 2019 August Bank Holiday event in conjunction with Modesty, we will be returning to provide you with the only smart dress only Summer Bank Holiday mid Weekender between Fast Way of Living on the Friday and Modesty Brighton on the Saturday, in the basement club at Al Duomo, 7 Pavilion Buildings, Brighton BN1 1EE.

Tickets available via PayPal. We are doing our early bird deal again at £16 for tickets for the two events or £10 for each night. Early bird expires April 1st so be quick if you want to take advantage. PayPal to modestybrighton@outlook.com and PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR ADDRESS DETAILS AND WHICH NIGHT YOU WANT THE TICKETS FOR (Modesty Only tockets will not be available for general sale until March at the earliest)

We are pleased to announce our DJ's for this wonderful evening as:

Dave Edwards - Who doesn't know Dave? Dave has been one of the guv'nors of the UK Mod Scene since day dot - name one place he hasn't spun discs at worth noting?! With one of the biggest and most diverse record collections on the planet, he's bound to get you on your feet... In the meantime, check out his monthly event in London, Sidewinder...

Alvaro Dimples - For those of you who've not come across Alvaro - he needs a strong introduction! Alvaro is a firm favourite at Fast Way... He basically controls the Spanish Mod Scene's taste in records with blistering (and I mean BLISTERING) Rhythm and Blues, Authentic Jazz and British Beat Treats - Hark back to the sound of The Scene in '63 with him!

Jodie Richardson - Coming back to our Brighton Bank Holiday Special for the second year running, Miss Richardson isn't a rival to the Krays (thank god) but she's definitely feisty bringing girl power to the mix - having DJ'd pretty much everywhere recently - Jodie's taste is very much Sneakers. Keep an eye...

Callum Sammon - When we asked for a Northerner, god gave us one that's sizeable in this mountain of a man - Callum is back again to show off his taste in Heavy Blues, Sweet Soul and Raunchy R&B, last year he knocked the socks off us with unknowns and songs everybody should know and we all twisted the night away with him.

Ian Bryden - Well, you all know Ian now pretty much, he's our partner in most of these events, runs the amazing Modesty event on the Saturday, a very good mate and someone who genuinely understands authentic mod music, he'll be there with the usual delights and a box of records to make you dammmmmmn envious!

Lucas Gomersall - Lucas is our main man and runs our internationally famous events on a day to day basis - having brought a new idea back to mod by playing the authentic club tunes of the era, from teen club Rhythm and Blues Pop to monstrous Motown hits, Lucas will be guaranteed to get you Twisting, Hully Gullying, Doing the Dog, Jiving with your Partner, the Wah Watusi and then getting you back up again with a Pace Setting Block Record!
