About C&T

Coffee and Turntables is a series of cafe-based daytime parties brought to you by Ivan (Thee Lucifer Sams) and Peter (Old Rope) along with regular guest DJs.

We organise events in cafes and eateries around Liverpool, usually on Saturday afternoons, with some special bonus evening bookings.

We only play vinyl records and have a roster of DJs with different tastes but all with one goal: to liven up your lunchtime! The events are family friendly and we try to use accessible venues wherever possible.

C&T is a great way to have a bite to eat, sample the delights of the cafes of the city and make some friends along the way.


The beginning…

Coffee and Turntables started life as a weekly DJ party on Jamaica Street, in Liverpool’s trendy Baltic Triangle, during the Summer of 2018.  We brought sunny vibes every Saturday afternoon for 11 weeks outside the then-new 92 Degrees café.

You know the famous Liver Bird wings graffiti? It was near there. You know the mural of Jurgen Klopp? It was opposite that. We made that spot so cool they decided it was the only place for their street art. Maybe. The sun was pretty hot that year and it may have gone to our heads.

C&T on the move

Since that first long hot summer we have had tons of residencies in cafés around the city, played a regular slot at Northern Soul Manchester, been on the radio several times, run pop-up events, produced podcasts, launched our famous B-Sides party organised record fairs, curated a mini-festival and have formed a partnership with independent heroes Good Liverpool.
