Steve Ranford is a key figure at the forefront of Worcester's house music scene. In addition to his residency at The Bar Upstairs at The Pheasant in Worcester he is well known for playing at Velvet Lounge, Mode, Bushwackers, Bar 12 and Bar 13.


A house music fan from a young age, Steve spent his weekends searching the Midlands' best record shops looking for those hidden underground house gems and hands-in-the-air anthems that lead everyone to the dance floor. An embracement of digital DJ technology means he can access an even wider range of house music which guarantees his DJ sets are always interesting, exciting and up-to-date.


Steve's first DJ gig came in the form of a Thursday night residency at the infamous Courtyard bar in Worcester.


After a hiatus, he secured his place at the heart of Worcester night life with his Friday residency in the dance music room at Velvet Lounge and his Saturday night residency at The Bar Upstairs where he played the energetic and original style of house music he is famous for. His Saturday night residency at The Pheasant / The Bar Upstairs is well known as being the longest running bar residency in Worcester.


Moving forward for 2014/15 Steve is set to be instrumental in the reopening of the famous bar and house music venue Bar 12 which will live once again in the Cornmarket area of Worcester city centre. One of the most popular bars and late-night house music venues in Worcester, the relaunch of Bar 12 will see real house music back on the map in Worcester town centre once again.
