Cool Beans Management?

Those of you who follow us on Facebook will have noticed that we’ve been banding the term Cool Beans Management around an awful lot recently. I mean we really have been splattering it all over your news feeds. Some of you “liked” our announcements, some of you disregarded them and hunted for more pictures of sexy horses. Fair play, we’ve all gotta get our kicks somehow. For those of you who are still unclear as to what we’re banging on about, Cool Beans Management is what to turn to if you want to book a Cool Beans act. This could be for festival appearances, club nights, bar shows, weddings, bar mitzvahs, book readings, funerals, bespoke Skype performances (if Dave Benson Phillips can do them, we can do them too), birthday parties, global warming debates, backflip lessons, etc, etc, etc, etc.

Who’s on our roster then? Well….

Andy H – Phenomenal scratch DJ, UK DMC finalist and Redbull Thr3style UK finalist.

Arnivore – Founder of Cool Beans, DJ and blog writer.

Ham Pocket – Acoustic comedy bronze trio with a healthy disregard for trousers.

Jimmy The Gent – Up and coming SheffTown DJ and promoter. He’s gentle and he’s a man.

Mikey J – Extremely versatile DJ with residencies at TTC, Sunday Joint, Shinobi, New Bohemia, Propaganda and Funkywormhole.

Smiling Ivy – Energetic ska/punk/reggae/funk band who can be found touring all over the UK and beyond in 2013.

The Legitimate Gentlemen – Live electro swing act who incorporate horns, banjos and samples.

The Welsh Whisperer – Country crooner, the prince king of Wales, voice of an angel.

So there you have it, click on the links to find out more about the above and if you’re interested in booking any of them please email We always respond promptly and you may even receive some “banter” with your booking. No extra cost of course. Thanks for your time. Goodbye. xx

Join us in ending 2012…

It’s been a great year for Cool Beans. We’ve had a lot of fun, we’ve had multiple good times, hell we’ve even had a variety of enjoyable experiences and we’re ending it the only way we know how – a quiet sit-down affair in Dom Kidson’s living room, 2 units of alcohol each and a small party popper at midnight.

Of course not! We’re throwing a massive party! Hooray! Warhgh! Etc!

We’re teaming up with The Harley (legendary music venue) and Clothes Line (legendary topless drunks) in bringing you a party that will satisfy and overwhelm all. Messieurs Andy H and Mikey J are headlining the affair, not only two of the best DJs we’ve come across, but also 2 of the nicest chaps you’ll ever meet in the “DJ scene”. Both Tuesday Club residents, they’ve played all over the UK and beyond never, failing to impress the crowds. For NYE they’re planning a special back to back set for us; all aboard the partybus!

Also on the bill are rapscallions Arnivore, Jimmy The Gent, Mr. Stu, General Ron, Lonesome Dom and Andy Enchilada. Last time all these performed at a venue together they left damages to the value of around £300 (if anyone from the Harley is reading this, we promise this won’t happen again) but also left everlasting beautiful and spectacular memories in the eyes of the punters. It’s guaranteed to be a lovely affair and with it being the last Cool Beans event for 3 months we’re all up for a special one!

Musically it’ll be all over the place. Emotionally it’ll be all over the place. Physically it could be all over the place.

Dirt cheap £3/4 tickets are currently on sale from the Harley and online here.

9PM – 4AM (entry still £4 before 10:30PM)

Bring on 2013!


Welcome to the wonderful world of Cool Beans.

Wow, what a great day, what an extremely pleasant day. Not only are we all going boxing later but today marks the birth of our brand spanking, revamped and relaunched Cool Beans website. It’s been long overdue, many people described our first website as and small children were known to faint if they caught a glimpse of the shoddy html coding. Once more, we apologise for all that, please drop the charges.

First of all, huge thanks go to the man like Matt Steer. He’s been working very hard day and night, only stopping every 26 hours for a quick urination and a Twix, in making our online dreams come true. If you too would like a website creating, whether it be a shrine to Abba or a place to showcase your omelette-making skills, please check out Reyt Design, you won’t be disappointed! Thanks also to the Unseen Bean for once more lending his artistic talents and finally thanks to whoever is reading this sentence, because that means our efforts were worthwhile and we can finally stop crying into our pillows at night.

Basically, this website is a massive improvement on the old one with some tasty new features. We now have a Cool Beans Management page, a free downloads page, a galleries page and a blog page which when clicked should bring you right back here. All our integral links have been embedded in the footer and we’ve been told the site looks grand on your smart phone, tablet, netbook, projected onto a pig, engraved into a tree, etc, etc.

So sit back, relax, and let your mind, body and soul be emerged in what the critics are calling “the best website launched on boxing day 2012 with an orange background and a picture of Andy Enchilada in the slider”.
