Colin Jazz Barnby Promotor, DJ, and Radio presenter.

It all started for me back in the seventies whilst at school in East London. I discovered back then what real music was all about, the music and the vibe was hot!
I started clubbing and DJing from a young age and frequented places like The Goldmine, The Royalty, Epping Forest Country Club, Lacy Lady, Wheelers, Billys …etc

An original Soul Boy from back in the day, complete with a wedge hair cut (yes I once had hair) and all the clothing that went with it.

I started collecting and playing music back in the early 80’s Being a veteran and around the scene for so long means I have a vast knowledge of the music and often quote many anecdotal stories along with facts.

Whilst my roots lay musically very much in a Jazzy vein and I can often be found playing in the jazz room. I also love my Soul, Jazz Funk and RnB.

Musically I drop anything from Jazz, Latin, Jazz Funk, Soul, Funk, Rare Groove, RnB, and sometimes a splash of the Disco glitter ball is there to be heard too.

I’ve played at various All dayers, Weekenders, Soul Holiday Events aboard and gigs, I hold residencies around the Essex and East London area.
