Graham Beetham and David Berthiaune are a two piece DJ act from Halifax who over the last five months have been packing out bars around Yorkshire with their unique sounds.

And this Saturday the pair will be rocking The Cobblestones, a new bar that has opened in Sowerby Bridge.

Graham who is 47 and David(41) are named Koot and have more than 20 years experience in music djing.

They’ve been mates for more than 12 years but only more recently begun their colaboration.

“What makes us so unique is that we have tried to break the mold so many DJs find themselves in. What I mean is that many DJs pigeon hole themselves into a category,” says Dave .

“What we have done is combine our musical tastes which span over 30 years and then mix together disco with modern house music and re-edit old tracks to make them more up to date.

“We tend to stay away from pop, and concentrate more on eras like 80s boogie/Nu Disco, with some new up-to-date sounds ... tracks we think still have life left in them like Chic, Shalamar Madonna, Roxy Music and house music.”

Koot are performing at The Cobblestones in Sowerby Bridge on Saturday, May 23 and the Potting Shed, Bingley on May 29.

Entry to the gig which starts at 8pm and goes on until 12.30pm is free.
