Sunday, November 8th, 2009

babble djHey babblers! Its birthday time! Time to celebrate 16 years of fat friendly house beats at the Charlotte, Leicester on 5th December.

For a taster try Damien’s new mix.

Extra funk filled fun upstairs hosted by Long Jon and Lobstafari, with special guest Barry Convex (The Twist and Spout).

Lighting by Image Oven, decor by Jitterbug.

babble @ the Old Mill – 15th August

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

Heads up babble folks! We’ll be rocking the Old Mill on the 15th August with the full soundsystem. We’ve been booked by a very nice man called Will whose having a birthday party there. £3 on the door all friendly folk welcome.

babble will be hosting the main room downstairs with sets from Rob, Deb, Mono and Damien.

Upstairs Will says there will be: “a mix of Rock and Metal from the 90’s downwards into the 70’s, with a good smelly chuck of cheesy tunes thrown in for good measure. Plus a mystery DJ set later in the night, just to keep us on our toes… if it all goes to plan”.

The Old Mill can be reached on foot via the towpath from King Richards Road. Head north, take the footbridge over the weir, and the Old Mill is in a courtyard on your left just before the lock.

From the A50 / Frog Island: Find the (now closed) Northbridge Tavern on Frog Island (by the canal), follow the road opposite the pub by the canal – past the lock and into North Mills, listen out for the music – if you end up on the foot bridge over the weir you’ve gone too far.

The address is:

The Old Mill, Frog Island
North Mills
Leicester LE3 5DL

Doors open at 8pm, finishing at 2am.

Free Party @ Lallie Bella – 20th March 2009

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

Heyup babblers, fancy a little get together? Yes? Good!

Mini – babble will be on the very top floor in the bar – not the full soundsystem as its kind of an awkward space and lots of stairs, but there is a nice outside roof terrace adjoining the bar. We will be taking PA just not the really big bits 🙂 DJ’s upstairs will include Lobstafari, Mono, Damien and Rob Forreal.

Festivities kick off at 9pm and run through till 4am.

Lallie Bella is on Queen Street LE1 1QW just down from the new Curve Theatre (map)

Thursday, June 19th, 2008

Thanks to everyone who came down and made Saturday another wicked night! Despite a slightly lower turnout than last time you groovers did us proud, keeping the dancefloor buzzing right through till 4am (that trip to the council for the late license was worth it after all!). As always keep in touch so we can let you know about the next party:

More vids and pics after the link below.


next babble 14th june @ keos

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

14th june flyerHey groovers, get it in your diary, we’ll be back rocking the joint at Keos on the 14th of June. Looking forward to seeing you all! More details to follow…

… and here they are! Ooo blimey this one has crept up quick on me. We’ve been scurrying around like crazy things modifying and adding things to the soundsystem so it should sound even better than last time! We’ve spent some of the hard earned pennies you pay on the door for our gigs on fixing one of our old amps and buying a new mahoosive one to make the bass super wobbly.

In the house room we’ll have babble residents mono, debs, rob and damien spinning the tunes, and very excited they are about doing it too, lots of new records to seduce your dancing intentions.

The second room will be hosted again by Long Jon with his ever expanding setup, new sound there and more lights. Lobstafari will also be gracing the decks with his fishy stylings, and we’re proud to announce a return to the decks of none other than Big Al who specializes in most funksome grooves.

It all kicks off at 10pm, late license has been approved by the council so we’re good to go till 4am provided there are no last minute objections. Get down before 11pm for £4 entry, £6 after.

Well that Really Was A Lot of Fun!

Tuesday, January 29th, 2008

Fat sounds, friendly folk, fuckin’ ace night! Thanks babblers one and all for making last Sat one of the best babble nights for a long time. Lets do it again soon…

Stay in touch for news of the next night:

Public service announcement – Miss S. McLaughlin left her handbag, phone, cashcard and (naughty girl) a large bottle of vodka at the club. Call Keo’s on 0116 2622929 to get it back (although I think the manager may be away on holiday for a couple of weeks now – hopefully someone will be there to give it to you if you’ve not got it already).

babble back at keos 26th Jan 2008

Thursday, January 3rd, 2008

bass hornHappy New Year to you all! We’re back at Keo’s bar above the Music Cafe on Braunstone Gate on Saturday the 26th January 2008. Time to start dancing off all those chocolates! 10pm – 4am, £3 before 11pm, £5 after.

We’ll be celebrating life in general but also the birthdays of good friends Chris, Dave, Gail, Becs and Jackie, so get the date in your diary – don’t miss out!

babble djs damien, rob, mono and debs will be providing the deep house grooves, along with special guest Not Will from MWD40. We’ll have a second room hosted by Long Jon, Lobstafari and Dave.

Fancy dress is encouraged on an animal theme, but is optional!

Also we have some work still to do but are hoping to be using some new bass bins which should double our trouser flapping output – another reason to come down for some lovely house vibrations.
