DJ Ultra Mel

Posted by Samantha Croad on October 10, 2013 | 0 comment

Ultra-Mel could dance before she could walk. Propped up between mattresses she would jiggle to the Police's De do do do, De da da da. She was destined for a life with an endless soundtrack and happened to fortuitously fall into DJing.   Ultra-Mel started DJing professionally in 2009 and she has been serving up dessert to dance floors ever since. She began with private parties and was soon offered a residency at Gin in Greenside. All the while refining what worked to get people dancing, she could be seen playing at Town Hall and was a regular feature at the gritty underground club in Braamies known as Kitcheners. There she played alongside the likes of Andrew the DJ and Felix Laban...

The Rocketeers

Posted by Samantha Croad on October 10, 2013 | 0 comment

Every once in a while a music act comes along that is truly unique and refreshing with the sounds it delivers, the hot new Duo Cover Band The Rocketeers is one such act.
