Eardrum @ dry bar / dry201 manchester 23.09.00

Eardrum was always a legendary night. Beginning life at Kaleida (now Matt-&-Phreds) with DJ Silver + 'live drum'n'bass' accompaniment from James Ford (drums) & Sneaky (bass), and the Subliminal Darkness crew (Crystallize, Fox, Jenna G, Piccolo, Quest & Thai) sharing mic duties before moving across Oldham Street to Dry Bar

Dry Bar wanted a change in music policy. Subliminal Darkness walked away. Eardrum #2 residents then included such luminaries passing through as Mr.Scruff, Chubby Grooves, Mark One, Andy Votel & Tom Simba (Groove Armada)

Now Eardrum #3 residents Sam Du Prez , Mr.Wilson and DJ Technique with drummer Phil Kirby (Yago / Biting Tongues) & bass player Steve OJ (Dust Junkys) who replace original Eardrummers Sneaky & James Ford

Eardrum welcomes back to Dry Bar an old resident DJ Chubby Grooves! Regular host mc's are (then-very-young) Jenna G and Real Deal who are joined on-stage by MC DRS. This is 2 years before Real Deal AKA Strategy and DRS formed Broke'n'English and became 'Manchester's Finest', before Jenna G went on to global D'n'B stardom!!
