BMC sponsored Kendal Discothéque

by Mick Ryan Discothéque Meister Thanks to thevision of the British Mountaineering Council (BMC) directed by the esteemed David Turnbull we are lucky to have veteran music selectors Craig Smith and GavinEllis entertaining us at the Saturday night discothéque at the Kendal Mountain Festivals to be held at Brewey Arts Center at 9pm on Saturday, the 18th of November. Smith and Ellis are the Disc Jockeys tothe stars, the folk that Ben (Moffat), Jerry (Moon) and Leo (Dicaprio née Houlding) call when they wantthe party rocked. Having recently taken the roof off at Ben Moon´s andAndy Cave´s 40th birthday, these two will be wrestling the wheels ofsteel for you pleasure at the BMC sponsored Kendal disco. I recommend getting tickets in advance because it´s bound tosell out.It´s hard to categorize what sort of music these guys play, but havingsaid that it´s not some new genre boom boom music that about 3 peoplein the room get. It covers all bases and anything goes as long as it´sgot a groove and even verges at times on Guilty Pleasures…who said theOsmonds never made a good record?Speaking to Craigearlier today he mentioned that “programming the music for Kendal is abig challenge. Just think about the audience that will be there. It willrange no doubt from young bloods fed on a diet of grime and dub step,through aging 80´s lycra boys and girls to withered mountaineers more athome with gypsy fiddle music” When choosing the records Craigmentioned that the flow of music is very important. Each record should fit withwhat has gone before it and what is to follow, not necessarily in tempobut in feel.”It´s going to be fun and to cap it all the Brewery ArtsCentre have kindly agreed, thanks to the hard work of Abi Willis theorganizer of the Film Festival, to let us play through their amazing soundsystem”
