Start Warming Up!

Start Warming Up!

Brrrrr. In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s winter. That means it’s time for Auckland-based, nationwide radio station George FM to do the right thing, and help pull party people everywhere up out of their winter blues.

That’s right, Nokia N91 presents the George FM Winter Warm Up, at the mighty St James Theatre on Queen St, Saturday August 19th.

Musically, it’s like a giant George FM smorgasbord across four rooms.

Perhaps you’ll sample some soulful, jazzy house courtesy of DJ Philippa, a dollop of chunky breaks from Page 3, some sweet funk rhythms from Selecta Sam and Uncle Barney, take a sprinkling of all round musical goodness from Cian, and then tuck in to a healthy serving of quality beats from Breakfast host Peter Urlich alongside DJ Bevan Keys.

The list goes on and on, with about 75 George FM and Base FM DJs playing a set, starting from 9pm, and heading well into the night. George FM’s little brother station Base FM takes over Brooklyn Bar with a hefty lineup of everything from reggae to hip-hop, to drum and bass, thanks to Shot And Go energy drink.

We’ll be closing off Lorne St at the back of the St James to create a Winter Wonderland complete with fake snow, visuals, and a Nokia mechanical snowboard.

Listen in to George on the night, as we’ll be going live to air from the event, bringing you the tunes from the main room, interviews, and general reporting of the happily chaotic proceedings, thanks to Jameson’s Whiskey.
