Book The Vintage Gramophone DJs
It’s a wind up, but not in the usual sense as The Vintage Gramophone DJs, comprising DJs Matt and Annabel, spin the discs on their 1930’s picnic wind up gramophones. The Vintage Gramophone DJs play an eclectic selection of popular music from the dance bands of the 20’s through to the rock’n’roll pioneers of the 50’s. These two shellac jockeys started collecting old 78rpm discs over five ago and have now had to convert their garage to cope with the vast collection of over 25000 records and 15 gramophone players.
Matt and Annabel use original vintage gramophone players which, by all accounts, were the iPod of their day, portable and with a great sound. These are linked up to a P.A. system to amplify the music for any size of venue. The original wind-up gramophones play 78rpm Shellac discs from a collection of over 25000 recordings, ranging from 1900 – 1960.
Matt is a regular studio guest on the Cerys Matthews show on BBC 6 Music and has previously appeared on BBC TVs ‘Working Lunch’ programme and with Rob Da Bank on BBC Radio 1. Looking dapper in his vintage tweeds or dinner suit, Matt can work completely independent of electricity, but has the facilities to be amplified when the circumstances necessitate.
