JFK has left The Emporium.

JFK leaves as Emporium expands

The Emporium in Coalville loses its talisman DJ as it opens up to the drinking market - what next for the county's super club?


Changing times are ahead for The Emporium in Coalville after its resident DJ and one of the main draws at the super club, JFK, decided to go it alone and leave the venue after years at the decks.

The club, recently under new management, is to invest over £300,000 in a new bar area which it hopes will attract a midweek crowd of drinkers as it opens its doors to a new market.

JFK, former co-owner of the club in Marlborough Square, will still DJ at selected PaSSion events at the club but has decided to split from the new owners to enhance his DJ career.

"He is still DJing here. We have got to clear up whether he wants to break away completely, but we still have him booked here for a number of events."

JFK will play on 14 August with Reece Elliott and will be playing a six hour set on 04 September. The club still wants to book JFK to play at PaSSion and is currently submitting dates for the rest of this year to his new agency.

"He is still DJing here. We have got to clear up whether he wants to break away completely, but we still have him booked here for a number of events. It's not going to be the last people see of him but as a promoter he has gone," says Dan Platten from the club.

The Emporium, although opening up to a new market with its development, will still stick to its dance music tradition with PaSSion and Red Room Sessions. The club will be home to another club night launching on 13 August.

New night 'Feel' features the best in commercial house and is headlined by Yomanda on its first appearance. The night is promoted by Pete Martine and follows a string of new nights which have found a place at The Emporium in recent years.

The Emporium, home to the massive PaSSion and Storm nights, opens its doors to smaller promotions including Religion which has found a niche market in Coalville and looks set to be joined by other unique nights.
