Beatz & Bobz have promoted parties in Miami for the WMC and toured the USA to promote the first Mix CD in 2001.
Launched on Thursday 30th October 1997 as a breakbeat club at the then 275 capacity Cavern Club Exeter, first guest was the Orb’s Dr Alex Paterson. We moved to Friday nights with the second party with guest Fluid (now known as General Midi) other early guests were 808 State and a very young Phantom Beats. Soul of Man played there second ever gig at Beatz & Bobz and Rennie Pilgrem debuted his seminal Emit remix at the club after finishing it on the train on the way down to Exeter.
Some other stand out moments at Beatz & Bobz; the visit from the legendary godfather Afrika Bammbatta, Timo Maas playing the week his Azido Da Bass mix was at number one, the residents selling out the club with no guests for the first time, seeing the club grow from around 80 people in the early days to selling out the Lemon Grove at Exeter University (1000 people) in 2005 with Finger Lickin' Records night. The first Beatz & Bobz Mix CD being released and the one thing that just keeps getting better the Beatz & Bobz crowd, with so many DJs saying one of the best and most knowledgeable crowds in the country. Krafty Kuts said the Exeter Respect Afterparty in 2011 was one of the best gigs he played where ever he went musically the crowd went with him.
Its easy to see why Beatz & Bobz has kept going for 19 years
