Listed below are a few places and events where P.J. has been out and about.

In March 2018, 'Oops' broke into the Top 3 of titles on Kindle after being featured in an Amazon promotion.

December 18th - Featured interview on Juice Radio Brighton

Former nightclub boss, Paddy Shevlin recounts the highs and lows of the Brighton club scene from the 70s and 80s in his new book.

'Oops Upside Your Head'  will take you back to the time  when the boat song was in the charts.

Paddy was inspired to write his memoirs as nightclubs are closing at such a rate in Britain - down from an estimated 4,200 in 1994 to around 1,700 in 2017 - that they could soon be a relic of a bygone age.

Paddy told Juice: "The book is set in my era when the  country was emerging from a time of grim austerity with industrial strikes and the imposed 3-day working week. People still needed to enjoy themselves, though, and with pubs back then closing at 11 pm, many found their fun at the nightclub during this golden age of disco."

Each chapter is  named after a song title and will ring many bells with anyone who spent time on the dance floors of  the Top Rank Suite, Busby's and The Pink Coconut in Brighton back in the day.
