Bang is 10! - 10 Years of Your New Favourite Club

My club night Bang turned 10 years old a month ago and to celebrate this amazing event we organised a massive Bang Birthday Party with all the fun of the riotous Bang affair plus photo displays, the Bangzine, a Bang Birthday cake and the return of the Bang Band which includes the Bang DJs plus our infamous roadie Steve on drums. Thanks Steve, for your energy, enthusiasm and encouragement (and for being so into it that you want to continue Bang Band!) You Rock!
The big birthday bash took place at our new home upstairs at The Stag and Hounds in Bristol alongside our fellow club night Dirty Casino (downstairs) on Saturday 16 February.
I wouldn't normally appear to boast about something I did but we had worked so hard to plan the event and these comments made me so happy and proud that I had to give them a mention!
Facebook comments on the Bang fanpage http://www.facebook.com/bangbristol after the event included.

'The Bang Band were brilliant'
'What a brilliant night thanks so much for a fantastic time!'
Wow!!! What a night! I love Bang!
'Loved it, the band rocked it. Roll on May! Xx'
'It was amazing, folks. Thank you so much x'
Thank you Bangers!!

And as we say at Bang.....It's time to kick out the jams!!

I love the two images of the amazing Bang Birthday cake. The top one where the cake is lovingly displayed and the second taken during the Bang party! The fantastic cake was made by the very talented Naomi (my brother Mike's lovely lady) Thank you Naomi!!!
The set list image (taken in what looks like a stable from all the random bits of straw on the floor) shows you the seven tracks we covered in the band these are all Bang favourites from the club night and were received really well, which was fantastic! I sang Decepticon by La Tigre at the end as I pretty much have to scream and it kills my voice! Totally worth it though!! I really enjoyed it!!
For the past 10 Years, the Bang DJs have always ended the night with 'Life on Mars - Bowie' which we did on this night too but the atmosphere was amazing and my brother Mike(seen above with Phil, my husband) decided we needed an encore and quickly grabbed - whilst managing to keep hold of his pint - 'Ace of Spades-Motorhead' The room went mad! Bang on!
For those who didn't know....Bang play 50s, new wave, northern soul, ska, alternative 80s, 60s garage, glam, underground indie and punk.... It’s time to Kick out the Jams……
Join Bang at The Stag and Hounds in Bristol, Uk on the following dates in 2013
Saturday 18th May

Be there or be square Daddio!
