RE:JOICE for it’s Friday night and come down to the most dazzlin’ night in town.
RE:JOICE for the weekend is here to be celebrated in true style.
RE:JOICE and let’s celebrate the songs that formed the soundtrack to your youth.
Hosted by The Hoxton Pony’s very own DJ/promoter extraordinaire Ronnie Joice, every Friday night we’ll RE:JOICE it’s the weekend and put on a party that’ll make sure you see very little else of it until Monday morning!
We’ve got all your favourites – each week we present to you a brand new guest DJ from the world of music, TV, film and fashion.
If you like ‘em, we’ll get ‘em!
You learnt the lyrics off by heart, and the dance moves infront of the mirror.. you copied the fashions and most importantly, you always sang along!
Our job is to resurrect those fantastic records that you forgot about so that we can make you fall in love with them, all over again!
THE BROKEN HEARTS
“The Broken Hearts (Nisha and Amber) lead a new wave of female DJ groups who look and sound great.” - Elle Magazine. Well-known for their distinctive brand of spectacular DJing, The Broken Hearts have played some of the most exclusive venues in London, as well as shows throughout New York, Paris, Moscow and Milan. Their eclectic sets have been described by The Independent as, "a Hollywood musical on hallucinogenics." They're either fashion designers (Beyond The Valley) or are being played by fashion designers (PPQ) or they're radio hosts (Q Radio) or they're collaborating with super-cool musicians (Whitey) or documentary makers (Welcome to the Big Top) or just simply being commentators (T4's Frock Me). Number 6 in Elle magazine's 'Hot 20' and number 16 in The Observer's 'Cool List', turntable Goddesses Amber and Nisha are guaranteed to pull out a plethora of delights from both the DJ crate and the dressing-up box. Need we say more?

ELI AND FUR
The capital’s cutest new DJ duo addicted to pop. They met when they were 16 while studying music technology and art at Hurtwood House, a school for performance and creative arts in Dorking, which counts Emily Blunt and Leah Woodamong its alumni. Now housemates in Fulham, Eliza Noble and Jennifur Skillman have tuned their creativity to London's party scene. 'We always go out together and often wearing matching Henry Holland suspender tights. 'Our friends see us as one,' says Eli, who works for Kylie Minogue and Cher’s Xenomania. Their party habits, which see them bopping between Shoreditch House and the Notting Hill Arts Club, inspired them to hit the decks. 'We always notice the details when other people are DJing – it's become an obsession,'says Fur, who, by day, is an accessories designer at Aspinal of London. After buying their first decks a year ago, the pair have picked up tips and whose music tastes range from Katy Perry to Daft Punk, have now successfully launched themselves as pop DJs who specialise in a RE:JOICE house party vibe.
