Viewing: DJ Sets - View all posts


This event is a must as ST ALLAN was a monster influence to so many in dance music. A true legend, icon and innovator who is loved and by so many and worshiped by clubbers and DJS alike in Manchester and The north West of england.

His memorial will be held at BOWLERS in TRAFFORD PARK on NOVEMBER 19th (TICKETS AT SKIDDLE NOW)

I will be there to my respects to the man who made pianoman/PCP/DJ FRIENDLY known across Manchester. 


Retro Rave (Volume 2) coming soon 

The first volume of the Retro Rave DJ set mix was very popular and we had many massages and inboxes as when there will be a volume 2.

It is being put together now and will be available for Free download early January 2020.


Back To The Old Skool (Dublin 30th Dec 2018) 

We had the pleasure of flying over to Dublin for the first time in three years at the end of December to play for BACK TO THE OLD SKOOL having being booked earlier in the year by DJ Fabio.

The Dublin ravers are without a doubt our faves as they really know how to enjoy themselves and know all the songs too! Every gig in the city is a pleasure.


We must thank Shaza Macca, Fabio & Bianca, NOW FM , Mark XTC and the rest of the djs on the night too x

Pianoman in Hull April 1st 2017

2017 Here we come 

2016 was a very busy year for us DJ wise and we cannot wait for the new year.  In 2017 Carl and James will be splitting all DJ sets between them both so at least one of them will be in attendance for Pianoman DJ bookings. 

There are a few reasons  for this...

James is working on other musical projects outside of the Old Skool genre and has a lot of time invested with songwriting and studio time.

The recent move to leafy and scenic mid Wales by James and his family due to personal commitments. 

Carl is not only a great DJ and technical head he is centrally placed in regards to bookings and the best of the two of them at organisation!

NOTHING CHANGES apart from logistics. The Pianoman tracks and remixes and mash ups that make our sets so different and liked are not going anywhere. The only difference now is James will have more time to concentrate on them.
