A nice long list for the DJ nerds 1993/2020
Make yourself comfortable
Below are just some of the many national & international artists that we have hosted, since WHQ reopened at Curtis Mayfield House in 2003. One or two played the Old Club, but it was once we got the bigger capacity @ CMH that we really went at it.
We'll keep updating it as there's bound to be loads we've missed. Just mad busy & can't remember everything y'dig..?
So when you spot any omissions, lettuce know so we can add 'em in, especially local bods, as there's been so many of ya & we want to ensure your names go there, as you are a massive part of WHQ history.
It’s a long, long, list... One that will no doubt bore you to tears, unless you are a musical or Dj nerd, currently unbuttoning your pants…
Assuming that's not you & your chosen love partner is still a real, actual person, please do feel free to whizz down & hit 'next' at the bottom, to skip straight over to the following page.
We won't mind & it might be best if you don't see what's about to go down.
As we fear things in DJ Nerdland, may be about to get a wee bit messy...
Tissues at the ready
Now we're all going to look away, so that those of you who are Dj nerds, can (properly) enjoy this tender moment, with a little privacy...
