DJ George RIP

DJ George
George Lawson, DJ, born 26 April 1954, died 27 October 2017
It is with Great sadness that George Lawson has died from terminal cancer after a long illness. George was a very important part of the Management at the Cooler Music Venue, Park Street, Bristol having joined the Company in 2003 and was also resident DJ every Saturday night for nearly 10 years, running Klub Kute from 10pm till 4.30am often following live band shows.
George also founded The Kandi Klub in January 1989 playing in Bristol to thousands of frenzied indie people with new and fresh electric mix, indie alternative music as well as the classics of the indie scene of the 80′s and 90′s based at the Lakota, Studio, Thekla and the Bierkellar, often 3 nights a week regularly playing to a 2,000 audience weekly. Many reunion nights were held at the Cooler and more recently New Years Eve parties at the Louisiana in Bristol.
George retired in 2013 to live in Cornwall, his childhood home and followed his passion for Photgraphy, but kept in touch with many of his friend’s of which I am proud and privileged to have known this popular, kind and caring person who shall be greatly missed by many.
