Welcome! This site reflects the spirit of 2Klub's
Hard House and Nu-NRG events which I've run in both Manchester
and Birmingham, from 1999.
My aim is to provide you with useful information about both clubbing
lifestyles and the clubbing business, and to help promote DJs I
like and respect and my own events.
This site also is a resource for those interested in clubbing and
club promotion and it provides a history of some clubs and clubbing,
albeit an individual view based on my own experiences.
I've done a lot in a short and interesting time.
In 1999 2Klub was the first hard house club
In 2000 discovered some now well-known DJs, like Eddie
Halliwell, and over the years gave a boost to some
2Klub's was the only underground club float in the now legendary
Leeds Love Parade.
In 2001 I organised and ran SWEAT and in 2002 organised
StOmP! both at Subway City
I also lost a ton of money. Oscar Wilde may have been feeling a
bit too jaundiced when he said "Experience is the name we give
to our mistakes" but there's some truth in that nonetheless.
Despite the angst of losing money, club promoting and clubbing continue
to take me on a fascinating and hugely enjoyable journey, and I've
learned a lot from both. Because of that, and the many people I've
come to know, I do not regard either as a "mistake". I
hope to share, and discuss with you if you want to, some of that
learning either directly, (my e-mail address is below), or generally,
through the Guestbook.
The opinions and advice on these pages are my own, based on my personal
idiosyncratic experiences, and are independent. Whether you agree
with me or not, please bear in mind that the price charged is zero.
There is nothing sold here, your e-mail address if you subscribe
to the newsletter, is not exploited, and I earn nothing from any
of the recommendations I make.
There's three main themes to this site.
The first is related to promoting my events,
(currently a historic exercise, but who can say what the future
holds). This encompasses pages such as:
The second relates to the business of clubs and
club promotion. Not of interest to many, but some people want
to know more about how the industry works mainly because they
want to be a part of it, usually either as DJ or promoter. Related

Theme three relates to clubbing lifestyles and
