    • Gogo Children Bristol 8th Bday Niter No 2 !!

      Ezzie has summed it extremely well. A great mix of music - class and quality upfront Northern, Rare Soul & Funk all the way from a well-selected, balanced and blended mix of some of the most experienced DJs around. I thought they all played off each other superbly, each injecting their own style and approach which made the night's sounds flow very nicely without any resort to the obvious or overplayed. Great venue and a superb ticket-only crowd who were a nice mix of soul fans of all varieties - younger, older, keen to dance, keen to listen. A record and anoraks corner near enough to the action to soak up the dancefloor atmosphere and far enough away to be able to chat and pontificate comfortably. Plenty of fun and laughs and altogether a fabulous all niter and a credit to the organisers who have built this club so well over the last 8 years.

      Well that was alright !! ☺
      despite selling out a week ago we were still getting requests for tickets right upto Saturday afternoon and deals were being done by those who couldn't make it
      Wed already taken the projectors and decks down Friday night so just had to tweek a few things and soundcheck saturday night and by 9 we were ready just as the first gogo ers started to arrive.After my first 30 minute set John took over for 30 while I joined nicci on the door with tickets and wristbands which was now a steady flow of regulars and new faces with both sides of the streets outside filling up with cars
      Dave Rimmer and Alan Handscombe were next up with mainly rnb and Northern from what I could hear on the door.I had to keep taking a peep and the main room and dancefloor was filling up nicely as was the far end with record sellers and collectors talking vinyl.
      At 12 we closed the doors and could join the party.Matt Sneath was now on the decks and it was HOT!! The dancefloor full to matts uptempo funky edged rhythm n soul.The best set of the night for a lot of people
      Myself and John were up next with 30 minutes each of gogo faves and requests before Mick H came on and pushed even our boundaries further with a set of different soul styles weaved together brilliantly for some very happy dancers
      After Mick Ted came on and kept the dancefloor full with big in demanders,northern rnb and some great funky edged stuff too
      Dave Thorley was up at 4 and educated aswell as entertained as always with quality rare soul as with mick pushing boundaries 
      as we approached the final hour although the crowd had obviously thinned out a bit.there was still more than enough to keep the atmosphere going while john and myself double decked...and still they danced right to the last track at 6....the night had flown by
      great sets by all our guests so a MASSIVE thanx to them...to all the travellers from devon to dundee and porthcawl to london and so many towns and cities in between..to all the first timers many who were already talking about July's niter ..to our regulars for the last 8 years and to the brilliant management Joe and Dan and all the helpful staff at fiddlers
      last summers niter was gonna be a hard act to follow but judging by the Facebook comments, saturday lived upto expectations
      Roll on July ☺
