Frenzy Showbar Launch with Pete Wardman & Ed Real @ The Showbar
Saturday 24th June 2006
After the 2004 and 2005 period of throwing our sporadic hard house parties in Club Destiny on Old Christchurch Road, Bournemouth, Frenzy needed a new home... and what better place than The Showbar! All I can say is thanks to Michael and Gamegrid for asking us to come in.
Frenzy take over the Showbar
The opening night of Frenzy's new monthly residency at the Bournemouth Showbar on the pier brought back many a good memory for so many hard house clubbers in the town.. in fact it was a little bit like a trip down memory lane!

Dylan kicks it off with Sesame Street
Dylan from Club Destiny started off proceedings with some classic Storm Trax white labels, the one with the Sesame Street riff in it being particularly memorable. Whilst this tune was playing the first of the hard dance clubbers started to come into the venue, and Dylan entertained them for the next hour with a very bouncy warm-up set.
Cheeky Scott – we knew what to expect
Next up was Frenzy favourite Cheeky Scott. Scott's been with Frenzy since the Passion days and continued the theme set by Dylan with more classic bouncy hard house which led quite nicely into Chris B of Pants and Corset fame.

Chris B gets a little bit trancey
Chris used to be resident at the infamous Manor nightclub in Ringwood, as well as Slinky, and soon showed his versatility with a set that was probably a little unusual for Frenzy as it had a hint of trance... however, this wasn't a bad thing as The Showbar by this point was rocking!
Trade’s Pete Wardman gives us a little techno
Next up was hard house legend Pete Wardman, and I don't use that term lightly. Pete's probably one of the finest hard house DJs on the planet and has played for Trade for many a year.. and Trade know their DJs! Pete's set had a little bit of everything including a little bit of techno.
Put your hands up for... Frenzy
Ed Real predicts a Riot!
The final DJ of the night was Riot's Ed Real. Ed's a Frenzy favourite having played for us at Destiny and played all the hard house anthems you would expect from an ex-employee of Nukleuz. BK's Bad Ass is the only one I can remember though... it was a very long and enjoyable night!
Frenzy's first gig at The Showbar was a success, many people came through the door, everyone danced, we all got a little bit drunk. Bring on the next one!
