Dan Spalding – DJ Dan ‘the Drum’
Dan Spalding – DJ Dan ‘the Drum’ shows
From East end barrow boy to club nights on the Costas DJ Dan “the Drum” Spalding has done
Guest slots and warm up sets that include The Legends that are Norman Jay MBE, Joey Negro , Brandon Block and Huey Morgan to name but a few..
Having spent his early years quite literally banging the drum for his beloved Spurs the name stuck and so did his love for all things with a beat.
The journey starts with a 14 year old Danny dabbling in the street smart sounds of East London’s Walthamstow, where record shops were revered as places of worship, and frequented by musical pilgrims. Funk & Soul, Reggae, House , Hip Hop, you don’t stop.. Well.. you get the picture/soundscape… eclectic music, for eclectic people.
This back story and the massive influence of the likes of Norman Jay, mixing black & white music regardless of genre, always putting the tune first, and marrying the tune to the right occasion at the right time, is what Dan is all about.
Head honcho at Schweet Charity, Dan has raised thousands for Local and National Cancer charities, and has helped many up and coming local musicians get a leg up and putting them on in the venues he has resided in, but he is still happiest behind the decks so come, dance, be subjective, be eclectic and be part of the collective,
“If you are looking for a good DJ who is competent and comfortable playing ALL styles of dance/black music to discerning mixed crowds, then Dan is your man. I’ve had the pleasure of deejaying alongside him several times down the years..” – Kind regards Norman Jay MBE
