This year’s Hogmanay (New Year’s Eve) party at the Bongo will be hosted by Mumbo Jumbo and Four Corners, two of our most enduring and consistently successful nights.
Mumbo Jumbo is the brainchild of Trendy Wendy, originally behind the much-loved Tackno nights, more recently behind the Playgirl Mansions parties and also the owner of The Street bar at the top of Broughton Street, and Steve Austin, who ran the hugely successful Headspin parties for over a decade at the Bongo. With some forty years of DJing experience between, you could say they know what they’re doing behind a set of decks.
Wendy & Steve will be rocking the main room with the very best Mumbo Jumbo classics, playing disco, house, electro, electroswing, mashups, remixes and more – the perfect ingredients for the best party soundtrack – all accompanied by drummer Bongo Dave’s live beats (on congas and other live percussion).
Meanwhile, upstairs will feature the very best in deep funk, jazzy breaks, afro-latin and dub reggae from Four Corners DJs Simon Hodge and Johnny Cashback, similarly seasoned veterans of the Edinburgh scene. Simon ran the acclaimed Big Beat nights for a decade, originally at the much-missed Cafe Graffiti and then at Cabaret Voltaire, before launching Four Corners at the Bongo. Having celebrated its tenth birthday at the start of the year, with a massive party featuring 6Music’s funk and soul evangelist, Craig Charles, Four Corners is still going strong and the two DJs are equally versed in heating up a dancefloor.
As an extra added bonus… your Hogmanay ticket gets you FREE entry into Mumbo Jumbo at The Bongo Club on Saturday 2nd January…. WooHoo! x
Tickets: £15 / £12 (adv) / £10 (early bird until Mon 21st Dec)
