The Rambunctious social club has firmly established themselves as one of the South west’s most unique club/arts experiences, penned as ‘Clubbing for the creatively curious’ Rambunctious aims to pull in the party goers in a more interactive, ‘come and play’ fashion. Rambunctious is the collaborative creation of visual artist and art wizard Lee Hodges(DJ – Hod’guez) and Glyn Griffths (DJ Griff – Jelly Jazz), both ardent sonic tune rattlers. Since it’s beginning nearly eight years ago Rambunctious has been exciting venues across the south west with fun filled themed nights of interactive play and the hookiest dance-floor tunes your feet can fathom! Remember it’s all about YOU!
LEE HODGES – ‘DJ Hodguez’. Art Wizard and tune rattler
Lee’s boundless curiosity and slightly obsessive nature, has led him down all sorts of paths!
Lee’s work in poster art and illustration is spreading far and wide and it’s his stylistic touch that has given Rambunctious it’s unique identity.
Lee’s appetite for invention and set design with his inventions of such classics as the turntable visuals and the cut-outs have lent Rambunctious it’s unique interactive appeal too. Now, due to a miss-spelling on a bus ticket in South America as ‘Hodguez’ Lee’s latin DJ name is realised and the boundless quest leads him to the DJ booth…
DJ slots have included The Americas cup stage in Plymouth, Bestival, Port Eliot, Tropical Pressure, Lush Showcase and many many more. Hod’guez likes spinning nothing better than a bit of Mexican Nortec and Mexican ska!
Currently you may find Lee dreaming up more creative antics, throwing stones with his feet, spooning down copious amounts of honey and taking his imagination on frequently long walks.
Griff has become a part of the Rambunctious crew by virtue of knowing astonishingly little about the other arts. As long-standing resident at the even longer standing clubnight Jelly Jazz, Griff developed an insatiable appetite for standing up in clubs and playing all of his favourite music at people, but thankfully they rarely seem to mind. He currently has residencies at the Eden Project Arts Cafe nights, Firefly Bar and still plays at the occasional Jelly Jazz event. Further afield he has played in Canada, the US and Puerto Rico…oh and Padstow! Griff also DJs for the Jelly Jazz radio show which can be found on listen again at any convenient time through the wonder of the giant web thingy at www.jellyjazz.com
Griff is currently galavanting around South America with his lovely wife Cara, we aren’t entirely sure when they will be back, but we think it will be March 2012, we miss them….but rest assured Rambunctious will be waiting.
This week he has mostly been playing rhythm and blues, swing, jazz, ska, calypso, funk, soul, gospel, salsa, cumbia, rhumba, afrobeat, with the occasional excursion into gypsybeats.
