Stop press - we can now confirm Sheffield's very own 'Beatleg Bootles' tribute band will be performing a set on the night based on the Beatles' legendary 1963 Azena Ballroom show promoted by Peter Stringfellow in the months leading up to the launch of the Mojo!
Join us as we turn the clock back to the sixties and celebrate the launch of our brand new book that remembers arguably Sheffield’s most legendary club.
King Mojo reined supreme from 1964 to 1967 attracting artists spanning Stevie Wonder to the Small Faces to play 555 Pitsmoor Road.
Lifelong friendships were made at this alcohol-free teenage club that attracted punters from right across the north of England.
Scores of club regulars have contributed to the 'Dirty Stop Out's Guide to 1960s Sheffield - The King Mojo Edition'; the book contains never seen before photos and more.
Our launch night will be re-creating the vibe of this incredible club via the dancefloor sounds of DJ Stevlor & The Spinning Orphans who spun the discs at the legendary sell-out Mojo reunion in 2011 at the Leadmill.
We also have Sheffield's own 'Beatleg Bootles' who will be performing a full set based on the Beatles' legendary Azena Ballroom show promoted in 1963 by Peter Stringfellow prior to the Mojo.
There will also be an exhibition of posters by celebrated King Mojo artist Colin Duffield. The event takes place in the nightclub of Genting Casino Sheffield. There is a carpark above the venue.
Author Neil Anderson said: “Few clubs anywhere created memories like King Mojo. The contribution Peter and Geoff Stringfellow made to popular culture in the era was quite incredible. I wanted to create a fit and lasting legacy to an era that will never be repeated."
The night will be in honour of Peter & Geoff Stringfellow who sadly passed in 2018.
The event will be raising money for Cruse Bereavement Care.
