Putting Families On The Dancefloor & Babysitters Out Of Business.
The sheer idea that we need some semblance a social life is utterly ridiculous. We have a social life; it’s just it resolves around transporting our offspring around various clubs and birthday parties.
Despite this outrage, there is still the small percentage of brain-space that remembers a time when we were ‘Avin’ it large’ around fields in the M25, or pumping our fists to ‘Fight The Power’. And when Jarvis crooned about ‘Let’s all meet up in the year 2000’ it seemed like a light year away.
Almost overnight we’ve swapped doing ‘The Running Man’ for the ‘The School Run’. Admit it, we’ve grown up and sold out. The vinyl is packed away and the dancing shoes have become comfortable plimsolls for stumbling around the garden.
Well, No More. In The Spirit Of Revolution, We Built TotRockinBeats.
Started in Sussex in 2015 by Dan Flanagan, TotRockinBeats, is a community interest company that brings together a team of highly experienced teachers, parents and festival workers, that also just happen to be top-quality DJs, artists, rappers, kids entertainers, dancers and one of the creative minds behind Bestival.
We were ravers, breakdancers and gig promoters – then we grew up and had kids. Now, we mash all of that great stuff together and throw highly original, themed parties on a Saturday and Sunday afternoon, so that people of all ages that can come together on the dancefloor.
We’ve sold out a wealth of 1,000 + capacity venues with our unique mix Old-School Hip-Hop, Funk, House, Soft-Play, Craft, Interactive Visual Arts, Lego and Singalongs. We’ve made a Wurlitzer organist mash-up David Bowie and Star Wars theme tunes whilst a 97-year-old lady DJ’ed. Now you don’t see that every day.
TotRockinBeats – It’s like going to an amazing festival, except you don’t have to camp and we are finished by 7 pm, so you don’t need to worry about paying the babysitter or getting home for bedtime.
