Hello Steve and Martin

Looking forward to my visit to "61" Great venue with great hosts in a venue to die for. Hoping that my brother Carl will be coming along too, which will make the night even more special. A superb warm up for the New Year.

See you all soon

Hi Ian,

We've had some really special nights when you've played for us at Route 61 and this is promising to be an absolute cracker.

Looking forward to seeing Carl tear the floor up if he can make it.

See you tonight

Just home from the Route 61, too wide awake to sleep yet. What a fantastic night that has been, not seen the place so full for a long time and the music was top notch all night, Well done to you all. Just hope everyone has enjoyed it as much as we have that they will want to do it all over again in two weeks time when the Route moves to the 2nd Friday of the month. See you all then.

Hello All

Just back myself and concur with everyone. What an absolute belter of a night. People pouring through the doors from early on immediately gave it a good feel. John played a superb opening set and both Steve and Martin followed suit. Dancers busy all night with all the usual suspects coming together to make it a wonderfully special night.

I really hope this is the shape of things to come for Steve and Martin, because they have worked so hard to make this venue what it is and it now seems that their hard work has finally paid off.

Have a great New Year everybody

KTF

WoW!............ Just recovering from the best night ever at Route 61.

What a special night that was, with a packed house and with people travelling far and wide all up to dance and have a good time.

John Barnsley, Steve Foster and top man Ian Gee all played briliant sets and even got them dancing on the stage.

Just got to thank everyone who made it such a fantastic night, all of the people who have supported us this year and to all of the DJ's who have played at Route 61.

We will be doing it all over again on the 13th January 2012 when we move to the second Friday of the Month and with a new extended finish time of 1 a.m

Wishing everyone a very happy new year!

Martin

What a way to end the year.

Not just one of the best Route 61's but one of the best soul nights that we have been to this year.

The music from start to finish was first class and what an atmosphere.

A real credit to everyone involved.

A very happy new year

Hya Ya'll, Late as usual bin asleep lol:

But wow what a night, i truly thank you all for the wonderful comments, From doors opening while awaiting John Barnsley the dancing started from my first record on the turntable which if memory is correct was ( The Showmen - Take It Baby ) a Mojo club memory, John and Joyce arrived John took over and gave us a brilliant set of soul thank you John, i was back up and it was a pleasure to play for such an appreciative crowd,

My partner with the (61) Martin Smith followed and kept the mood going with as always a set that you could not resist hitting the dance floor i even ventured on to it till my ageing body could take no more, The God Father Mr. Ian Gee followed Martin with a set to die for he always deliver's the goods again tempting me back to the dance floor for a couple thankyou Ian you will always be welcomed back at the Route61. Martin Smith returned to the turntables with even more goodies which left it to myself to take us to 1 o clock and fin. the athmosphere was increased with Tosh's Girls dancing on the stage which attracted more of you to do the same bringing back some wonderful memories of what we did a the King Mojo Club in the Sixties, i thank you all for the fab athmosphere you all created, I played us out with Bunny Sigler Will you Love Me Tomorrow.

Once again i give a huge thank you to you all for such a wonderful enjoyable night, here's looking forward to many more in 2012. see you in 2 weeks on the second Friday with the new finish time of 1 o clock.

Happy New Year to you all,

Steve Foster
