missionaccomplished: Club Voodoo
July 14, 2010
With VOOdoo back behind the decks of Bar Mango, the Angels had to join in the party.
We timed our arrival at the Hosier Street club so that we could enjoy a champagne reception to get us in the mood.
After some early evening mingling in the garden terrace, the party was just getting started.
It wasn’t long before we hit the dance floor as Dave Oldershaw DJed. He’s the sound of Voodoo and has played with the best over the last 20 years, including former Big Brother contestant Kate Lawler, who guested at Mango last month.
Voodoo original Mr Mickey Slim was also blasting out the tunes that got us Angels onto the dance floor.
Sonny ‘The Outlaw’ Webb moved the music in the direction of house, while the special guest slot this month was UnderCover DJ aka Ric James, who has been regularly rocking clubs in the Midlands.
The event organisers told us that the Voodoo house sound has moved on with the times but remembers its roots and always puts on a seriously fun event.
As well as playing at Bar Mango on a regular basis, Voodoo has gone global with gigs in Ibiza, Poland and in clubs across the UK.
As the dance floor was getting heated up (with us on it, of course), the garden terrace was getting chilled out as Let’s Get Analogue played some subtle house and techno.
Mango has given us a great combo with the best of both worlds, this was club heaven.
The garden is now open for free from 8pm so you can come down early and relax before a good build-up in sublime surroundings of the Mango Terrace.
You could be anywhere other than Reading – this was total escapism, it was so easy to get lost while listening to Let’s Get Analogue. The club officially opens at 10pm, with entry ending at 2am.
