MESSENGER

23:00-03:00 £5 b4 12 and £7 after / £6 all night (students)

Messenger, the original roots advertiser, consistently programmes the heights of conscious reggae music, dub-wise and otherwise!  Crazy to think now that it first started in Edinburgh back in 1987 and that it’s been keeping the fires burning, every month, at the Bongo for two thirds of that time.  That’s 30, THIRTY, years at the heart of Edinburgh’s reggae scene, and 20 years here at the Bongo!  Upstairs: Sound System Legacies explores the legacy of dub / reggae / roots music and sound system culture on more contemporary club / dance music styles such as dubstep, jungle, d n b, garage etc, featuring DJ Skillis plus guests…  Look out for some of the mighty Messenger Sound System in here as well!  2 Floors of music – Don’t miss!  Powered by Messenger Sound System.  FACEBOOK

MUMBO JUMBO + THE GOGO

23:00-03:00 £3 B4 12 / £7 after / £5 (concessions)

Mumbo Jumbo mixes it up a whole heap.  Resident DJs Trendy Wendy, Steve Austin and Eva Crystaltips play everything from disco, funk and soul to electro and house: Saturday night party music all night long.  But Mumbo is very much a LIVE dance party, as ‘Bongo’ David Bernard gets busy on the live percussion alongside Erb & Ting (alias Al Roberts and Groove Armada’s MC MAD), also jamming live (guitar & vox).  AND upstairs it’s The GO-GO, with DJ ‘Tall’ Paul Robinson and friends playing gassy and groovy 60s Pop and Beat, Mod Tunes, Soul, Rock N Roll, Garage, and Ye-Ye…  Two clubs for the price of one?! You bet!
