Glasgow SWG3 : February with OOFT!

Ali Herron aka OOFT! has been knocking out rock solid original productions and his own DJ-friendly edits for several years now. From running the much sought after L.E.S.S. Productions label with The Revenge, to releasing on the now infamous Instruments of Rapture aswell as influential labels Delusions of Grandeur and Wolf Music, he has recently been focusing on his own burgeoning imprint, Foto Recordings.

As a DJ, he has held residencies at top clubs like The Sub Club and Berkeley Suite in Glasgow as well as touring around Europe, and is known for dropping just about anything in his sets from slow mo tackle to disco to classic house sounds. With debut album "Intricacies of Modern Life" coming out in Feb this year we are excited to see what Ali OOFT! brings to Mini Manoeuvres.

Fake Hogmanay

After a successful Fake Hogmanay party last year and loads of requests we are back with a bigger and better party for 2017. Tickets go sale on Monday at 12pm so click going or interested to stay in the loop. This Mini Manoeuvres is bit different from normal MM parties so please read on. It's for parents, children, grand parents, aunties, uncles and family friends to see out 2017 and welcome in 2018 together in a fun environment...with all your family and friends in a magically festive location without actually going out on Hogmanay...no taxi drama and no baby sitters required. 

We will celebrate in true Scottish style with DJ's David Barbarossa and Gerry Lyons, 4 hours of party tunes, a sit down dinner, a piper, a balloon drop, a live acoustic set, maybe a few rounds of strip the willow, a disco, a fake count down, the bells of course a big HAPPY NEW YEAR. 

As usual there will be free face painting AND glitter tattoos, soft play, giant connect four, giant inflatable ball pit, murals, arts & crafts, LEGO, play doh, sand pits and more. Adult food will be provided by the award winning and highly rated A'Challtainn Fish Restaurant & Bar. Kids food will be provided by Magnificent 7 Pizzas. 

Ticket price includes all of the above and; 

Adults: Haggis, neeps and tatties plus a glass of fizz on arrival (veggie haggis available)

Children: a choice of haggis pizza or margaritas by the brand new Magnificent 7 located in BaAd.

We expect this unique event to be very popular, tickets are limited so don't sleep. If you are meeting friends at the event and wish to sit together please read the confirmation email carefully. 

Pre walking babies are free as always, noise levels are monitored throughout (via a meter on the decks). Mini Manoeuvres is aimed at pre and early primary age (0-8) although all ages are welcome to attend. If you have any special dietary requirements or birthdays please get in touch. 

Happy New Year!

Mini Manoeuvres Southside

Come and celebrate the May Day bank holiday with us! DJ Rebecca Vasmant will be there plus another very special guest TBC. 

Rebecca has already made a name for herself in Glasgow with her residencies at Sub Club, Made In Glasgow and Know The Way parties. She also runs a popular record fair with the venerable Sub Club. A monthly spot on BBC Radio Scotland playing contemporary jazz records, attempts to bridge the gap between this much abused but crucial genre and the electronic scene. As a huge jazz fan, she also airs this facet of her irrepressible musical passion at key events like the Glasgow Jazz Festival and the Baltic Soul Weekender.

Rebecca's Ministry of Sound activities have taken her to 22 countries in the last two years; including premiere spots in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Estonia, India, Africa, Nicaragua, Bosnia, Latvia, Dubai, Austria, Turkey, Serbia, Algeria and Bulgaria. We are looking forward to seeing what records she brings to Mini Manoeuvres.
