That Amazing Thing! takes its roots from all the best house parties we’ve ever been to. Formed in 2000 around the nucleus of Manchester DJs Mark Haran and Francis Wooff and their friends it grew from house and cellar happenings across the city to become a club night with the intimacy and atmosphere of a house party.
Evolving through various guises That Amazing Thing! has at times been a Sunday evening session, a series of quarterly events and a monthly Saturday club night, however we found regular scheduling and operating on a commercial basis led toward compromises. So the night's current form came into being - a range of formats as diverse as the music played there and the people who go. Abandoning safety for freshness and spontaneity That Amazing Thing! takes place in various hidden underground spaces around Manchester and in other odd surroundings: from boats to micro festivals in the countryside involving camping and village halls. These parties have free admission where possible or kept at cost where not, news of them is spread via word of mouth, through personal invites, by our mailing list and this website. Our aim is to have fun whilst bringing cutting edge music to the dance-floor - from techno to hip hop, afrobeat to soul music, 2 step future sounds to classics, everything goes into the mix to create the warm, special vibe that has developed round the night.
At That Amazing Thing! we share the music we love with the open minded people that form the friendly crowd who come along to our nights of high spirits, intimacy and crazy fun.
