Can you believe it? Five whole years of Cool Beans. Something that started as a small time club night/radio show has spawned five whole years of parties along with two television series, a management agency, a monthly column in Now Then and a regular slot on FM radio. Cool Beans has also enabled us to host stages at festivals, take a musical comedy show on the road, DJ all over the UK & beyond and make a whole bunch of friends in the process!
As always, a big thanks to everyone who has helped us along the way, it means a lot that you keep coming to the events and tuning in to our tv/radio output. As you know by now, there’s only one to celebrate a beans milestone, and that’s by hosting a huge party in a venue we’ve never partied in before! Hooray!

ROOM 4 – THE SMOKING AREA!
Perfect place to hang out with some friends and absolutely ideal if you like smoking. On top of all that – free air con.
And here’s some info on the acts!
Festival scene legends, Brighton-based King Porter Stomp return to Cool Beans after blowing us away a few years back, bringing with them their unmistakeable funk/ska/dub/hip hop sound! For added excitement, Davin from the Staxx Brothers (Seattle, USA) will be joining KPS on stage for extra funkiness!
NEW YORK BRASS BAND
Some people call them “the ultimate party band”, and you know what, we’d have to agree with them. These brass monsters have been known to clamber on bar tops, take parties into the street and hang upside down playing trombones! You know you’re in for a good time when NYBB are on a line up!
A band close to our hearts, alongside them we’ve toured the French Alps, the Scottish Highlands and countless UK cities. The evening will host a double milestone as Smiling Ivy shall also be celebrating ten whole years!
MANGO RESCUE TEAM
Tropical mayhem galore from this Sheffield collective, expect inflatable palm trees and more coconut rhythms you can shake a stick at. Tropical rating will be through the roof for their set!
Hapless chumps Chris Arnold & Mickey Michaels, from the Cool Beans Television Show, have been allowed out of prison for the night.
We’ll also have a second room going for this one, a DJ fuelled mega-mash-up-party-rave the like that Sheffield has never seen before! Working the platters that matter on the evening are as follows…
Andy H (Tuesday Club)
Jimmy Then Gent (Clothes Line)
Powlo (Thirsty Ear)
Smiling Ivy (DJ set)
And a special Cool Beans debut from legends of the rave scene: Junglist Alliance! That’s right! Junglist Alliance!
On top of all this, the Cool Runnings Cafe will be set up in case anyone gets peckish: meat and veg options available!
EARLYBIRDS – £5 (Sold Out)
ADVANCE – £7 (Sold Out)
EXTRA ADVANCE – £9 (Not Sold Out)

All tickets can be found via the charitable ticketing website and our good pals Party For The People.
This is going to be our last event of 2015 and probably our last big one for quite some time. All the more reason to see you on the dance floor!
