On the 19th September 2013, Cafe Mambo will be hosting a truly unique event for the second year running. Mambo In The Mix is an event that they put on to support the Red Cross in Ibiza and Formentera.
The event aims to raise a lot of money for charity which is a great thing but in order to raise this money, the guys at Cafe Mambo’s put on something special.
For one day only, Mabo mixes it up, the public can have the opportunity to provide the music and Dj in Mambos Dj booth, and the Dj’s server the drinks!
Last year saw the likes of Carl Cox, Armin Van Buuren and Seth Troxler (to name a few) all put a shift in serving food and drinks. Its an opportunity to get a little closer to the Dj’s and even catch a word with them as your ordering your drink 🙂
If your In Ibiza next week, then please go down, buy a drink, make a donation, think about how much money your going to spend each day while your away, and then maybe think about the people who will benefit from money you would probably never miss.
A couple of years ago, i was sat at work one Friday morning listening to the radio 1 Dj competition. I remember it so well, because there was a Blackpool lad on. It’s not often we get on the news or radio, unless it’s a bad news!
Danny Howard was the Dj and he wiped the floor with his competition. His prize ended up being the prize that just keeps giving. Warmup slot at Ushuaia for the radio 1 weekend, followed by an invite to play at space the same night, if i remember rightly, he ended up doing a 6 hour set in there. The following year offered more gigs, a Radio show and more of a season in Ibiza.
In 2013, Danny has decent summer schedule for his Ibiza gigs.
I feel a bit guilty starting this blog post off talking about him as though he is a competition winner because he is now far from that. It’s a fairy tale with an amazing ending though, i don’t know Danny personally (though there is probably a connection through mates, Blackpool inst that big!) though it seems like the boy next door has done good!
Enough of the sentimental guff, Go and check Danny out this summer if you’re in Ibiza. He has already played Pacha this season and the pre party on Mambos for which he appeared on Mambo TV.
So far i have the following dates for Danny
Friday 5th July – Judgement, Ibiza
Friday 12th July – Judgement, Ibiza
Friday 19th July – Judgement, Ibiza
Monday 22nd July – Pacha, Ibiza
Friday 2nd August – Judgement, Ibiza
2nd – 4th August – Radio 1, Ibiza weekend
Saturday 3rd August – Cream/Radio 1, Privilege, Ibiza
Next Tuesday, Mambo play host to a very special night for a great cause. Mambo in The Mix, is a charity event raising money for the Red Cross, and they have something very special lined up.
Planned to coincide with their 18th birthday (eek, they were 5 when i first went!) They have a night of drinks and music planned, with a twist.
On the night you can expect to see the following Artisits:
Armin Van Buuren
Paul Van Dyk
Woody Van Eyden
Zdar Of Cassius
All of these Dj’s will be working behind the bar in Mambo at some point throughout the evening. In what would be the most surreal event if it ever happened to you, PVD could be serving you a beer, or Seth Troxler could be mixing your Pimms!
Whats more, you could be playing the music from the Dj booth, while the Dj’s are mixing the drinks! It sounds like Mambos will be a road block on the 18th, but it will be well worth it for your favourite DJ to be serving you, and money being raised for charity.
I think its great these guys have taken time to do this, so return the favour and if you’re in Ibiza next Tuesday, go down and check it out. If you’re not there but would like to contribute, then head over and make a donation on the Mambo website
