Andyman has wealth of experience in DJing predominantly ‘rock’ music spanning over 30years. Anyone who has experienced his full all nighter sets know to expect many more styles chucked in the mix way beyond just ‘rock’. Throughout that time he has a vast array of genres to pick from and mould them into the party soundtrack we’ve come to love. Having worked numerous amounts of venues both locally & further afield, including the mighty Rock City in Nottingham, he says his spiritual home is here at The Rigger. When asked how he would best describe his style, he said ‘alternative party anthems’. He loves music as an entity not individual genres as the same themes are present across all genres just presented in different ways- no different to paintings in an art gallery & which style you prefer doesn’t make it right or wrong. He also appears to have a talent for not just technical ability but for visually comical air drumming!



DJ Dan Peach is no stranger to the Stoke music scene, having DJ'd in The Rigger, and various other local venues for many years. Dan specialises in both contemporary and classic Metal, Hard Rock, Goth, Punk, and Grunge. His all-time favourite bands are Kiss, Judas Priest, Ghost, The Misfits, The Cult, The Wildhearts, Therapy? The Sisters Of Mercy, and Danzig. 


Dan is also a published musician, having currently played on ten studio albums. He has also toured across Europe several times. Dan keeps his finger on the pulse of the music scene via his music blog
