This year, we thought wed do something different in August... In conjunction with our friends at Modesty, we have decided to bring you a new event for the Friday night of the bank holiday weekender in Brighton, to provide the authentic mod event for the Friday night we think youll want!

We have booked you some mighty fine DJs to suit and the event will run in collaboration with modesty. We will offer a discounted ticket for those who purchase both Friday and Saturday night tickets from us.

I am proud to introduce to you Nicholas Louchart all the way from France... Callum Sammon and Jodie Richardson the power couple from Leeds and Norfolk respectively... Jim Watson of Soul on the Square who you all should know and Mr Bryden will be joining me to tie everything together.

Modesty's August Bank Holiday Special will also be returning to the Downstairs Club at Al Duomo's, Brighton on Saturday 24th August to play the hippest sounds to the best dressed crowd a of the weekend This year's event will see Ian Bryden hosting once again, the wonderful Mike Warburton (MG Blues), and brilliant young gun Vinny Baker join residents Colin Baldock and myself.... AND we are very happy to announce that Sneakers legend and all round top fella Paul Hallam has agreed to spin some tunes for y'all !

In further exciting news ... the venue will also be opening the upstairs bar to us on both nights from 11 (& piping the music up there) to alleviate the bar issues from last year 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) :)

Tickets for each night are 10, but as a special deal for early birds you can have tickets for both nights for just 16 by paypal ( as Friends/Family) to modesty_brighton_19@outlook.com

So there it is...

Recently received the two latest offerings from Jason Brummell's Suave Collective Publishing .... quite enjoyed jason Disley's Mod Noir effort "7 Day Fool" and currently thoroughly enjoying my friend Dave Dry's wittily written recollections of modding about in West London in the 60s ... "My Generation"

Highly Recommended :)
