A house DJ hopes to bring a successful 2013 to a close with a packed dancefloor at his pre-Christmas show.

Ross Michael will bring Fuse to the Voodoo Lounge at Mama Liz’s in Stamford tomorrow (Saturday).

The Stamford-born DJ branched out on his own this year after setting the night up with Jamie Scott and has developed a dedicated following in the town.

Ross said: “The night has evolved quite a lot since we started. The last gig at halloween was the best and biggest I’ve ever done.

“I’ve also been dabbling with a 4am finish. Some people are against it but a lot of people are staying until the end which is great.”

Ross’s promotional budget is limited, so he relies on word of mouth, social media and flyers to bring people in.

But people are clearly enjoying his own mix of house and techno, along with the sets of the various guest DJs he brings along.

Ross said: “The Voodoo Lounge is a band-oriented venue, so it’s harder to promote a dance night.

“But I’m enjoying it. I try and get different guests in. On Saturday we’ve got a couple of guys from Northampton.

“We try and get away from the usual DJs in town and get people from out of the area while still putting on a free gig.”

Ross will be joined tomorrow by Jon Passey, Monochrome Brothers and Gutty. The night runs from 9pm until 4pm and entry is free.
