The Marquee is looking good!

I was down there yesterday for a sconce around-It's a much better site than last year and the entrance to the gig gives off a much nicer festival vibe-my pics aren't great but they might give ya an idea of what to expect! I was talking to Peter Aiken who is overwhelmed by the reaction to the Kanye gig (only a couple of hundred tickets left) The fact that it has outsold his Dublin shows is good for us down here and I reckon a yearly hip-hop guest of this calibre could well materialise!

Check out all the details of Cork Hip-hop week at and the details on the Marquee at Later on today someone is gonna be winning VIP tickets to the whole shebang (with free gatt and parking!) on Red Drive!

    About Me

    My photo
    I'm a DJ from Cork in Ireland. I work with RedFM, presenting Red Drive, The Hitlist and my specialist show, Black on Red. I'm probably best known for being one of the main hip-hop/soul DJ's in Cork and Ireland. I've been DJing in Cork since the early 90's in legendary clubnights such as Sweat in Sir Henrys, Mor Disco, Free La Funk, Yo Latino and also Jam and Jam Junior at the Savoy and the Pavilion. I've also held down long term residencies at clubs around Ireland such as Brown Sugar at the Kitchen in Dublin, U-Turn at Ri Ra in Dublin, Jazz Juice at the GPO in Galway, Thompson Garage in Belfast, the Soul Clinic, Dee-Bop, Meltdown and Mo Bounce in Limerick and i've played abroad in the United States and the U.K. on numerous occasions. I also write a music column for the Evening Echo and i'm a regular contributor to the U.K.'s Blues and Soul, the longest running black music magazine in the world. These days i run the Pavilion, a music venue in Cork, which hosts my Jam night every few Fridays also you can catch me at
