Judge To Deliver Verdict On Coventry Club

A leading Radio One DJ has given his verdict on Coventry nightlife by choosing to perform in the city ahead of several top venues.

Judge Jules will appear at the 1,800-capacity Ikon Superclub tomorrow after hearing positive feedback about the venue.

The club recently played host to Jules' colleagues Trevor Nelson and Artful Dodger, something SkyDome manager Ian Knight believes prompted his decision to follow them into the Coventry DJ box.

He said:

"Judge Jules is one of the most famous and well respected DJs around and has achieved rave reviews worldwide.

"We are delighted that he is coming to the city because he receives requests to perform all over the globe - I know that he has played to huge crowds in Argentina, Australia and a host of other countries.

"His interest in appearing at Ikon stemmed from a growing reputation that we are gaining in the industry thanks to high praise from the likes of Trevor Nelson, Artful Dodger and other artists who have appeared here.

"It is fantastic for us, but also for the city that Coventry is becoming the talk of the Radio One staff-room - that always used to be an honour reserved for the top London clubs."

Judge Jules, real name Jules O'Riordan, gained his nickname for being one of the few DJs to hold a degree in law, and Stavros Poulos from promoter Cosmic Entertainment believes Jules now lays down the music rules.

He said:

"The rise of dance music owes a huge debt to Judge Jules and his determination to bring it to people's attention.

"He is renowned for spotting some of the countries top tunes well before they hit the charts and his opinion is one of the most respected in the industry.

"Who knows, maybe Coventry clubbers will get the opportunity to hear some of the summer's biggest tunes a few months before everyone else.

"Tickets for the event are selling extremely fast and we are expecting them all to go well before the night."

Tickets for the event can be purchased from the Jumpin Jaks box office priced 10.
