Miloe VB 2016
So, finally the dust seems to have settled, just a little, people are still talking about the good times, the dj’s, and looking to next years event already.
This year saw Miloe return for his 8th year as a Vocal Booth resident dj stepping up on the friday afternoon poolside. The friday poolside session was to be a Pressure Radio takeover with the whole session featuring DJ’s from the station. Things were set off perfectly From Jeff Garcia with a set spanning Soul, Funk, Jazz, Latin, Afro to Broken Beat, & some House. DJ Semi continued the vibe perfectly leading into the Pressure Radio’s head honcho DJP.
So, the time is 5pm and things have warmed up nicely and its time for our very own Miloe to step up.

Ton a Grooves
This saturday see’s the return of a two DJ’s under one banner “Ton a Grooves”. In association with Vocal Booth Weekender the mix tapes come alive once more with a party in the heart of Birmingham, UK.
Patrick Smoove & Andy Ward have been friends for over 25 years.
Patrick was already a major name on the U.S House scene in the UK by the time Andy Ward started to make any kind of noise at his Sunday Morning residency at Marco Polo’s.
Patrick was resident at The Steering Wheel, C.R.E.A.M and regularly appeared at all the hot spots up and down the country as well as a much coveted appearance on …Pete Tong’s “Essential Mix” plus several guest mixes for Danny Rampling’s “Love Groove Dance Party”.
In 1996 a series of “bootleg” mix tapes began and was to be the favourite amongst most of the clothes stores, hairdressers and food joints all across Birmingham City Centre.
For the next Vocal Booth Local Gathering, we are excited to bring the Ton-A-Grooves vibe back to Soho Rooms in conjunction with Panache.
Opening up the night will be Neil Pinnock, followed by a four-hour, vinyl only set from Patrick & Andy, back to back.
Soho Rooms is an amazing, intimate setting for this one and after the great feedback from the Boxing Day Gathering, we are sure to have a roadblock.
Remember your Vocal Booth Membership Card for half-price entry !
