The Pop, Rock, Soul & Rock ’N’ Roll sets are also very engaging, louder than the Jazz & designed to get people dancing with the grooviest & most iconic vintage hits as well as modern ‘Indie’ anthems.

The Ska sets are for the niche ska lover and are very energetic and full of all the favourite ska tunes.
