This event is now over. Look up now to read the latest reviews of this soul event

I've had a couple of people ask me where the nearest place to stay is. There's a travelodge less than 5 minutes down the road, here's a link

If anyone wants a 'sales table' on the night, you don't have to book. But please bring a power extension lead & light.

Would be great to see more record sales boxes.

Looks like it's going to be a very busy night again.

Hope you had a great night Hammie / Pottsy. Sorry I couldn't make it over as intended but next one is in the diary already!

Thanks again for what you did over this way last Saturday. Amazing records between you and people still talking to me about it with lots of great feedback about what you played etc. I'll tell you more when I next see you + hope to have a nice photo or two for you too.

All the best, Steve.

Yes I have to echo the above comments. Some top quality tunes. Yvonne Vernee, Al Scott, Del Larks but the best was The Cautions, thank you for playing that. Good cross section of music, good atmosphere and nice to meet up with people I have not seen since the late 70,s. Didnt bloody recognise many though. Must be my glasses??

Put up your playlists guys it deserves a bigger audience.

Just like to agree with the above comments with the exception of the 70's sounds remark, hey we all got our own preferences but personally I thought the boys done good

Regards

You know what, It's weird, but that old club house at Stewartby has a feeling about it. You know when you have a favourite room at home, the one where you come home & head straight for, where you sit down with a cuppa & think 'phew....it's nice to be back home'. I get that same feeling about that old club house in Stewartby. You then combine that with a room full of friendly people....you then bung a few old records on the record players, it's just like being at home in that room, except it's about 75 times bigger lol

Hammie & Geoff take the same approach as me, so long as it's fun...lets do it, & at the moment it is good fun.

I really want to thank everyone that has supported the club & made it enjoyable. A very big thank you to Sue & Kelly on the door. Bless her, Sue has to leave Kelly in charge now & then so she can dash over to the dance floor & have a dance.

I also want to give a mention to our mate Mick Lewin. Wow, did he help us out on Saturday night. A fella on the edge of the dance floor was more than a bit the worse for wear drink wise. I was told that not only had he been sick all over himself, but also 4 chairs, plus a corner of the dancefloor. Mick could see I turned a funny colour when I went over to take a look & straight away took charge & cleared it all up. Thanks ever so much fella, you saved an even bigger mess.

On the music front, being an anniversary party type of night, I think we strayed from the path we normally go down. I said over the mike "if you have any requests come up & see us" doh ! it was my fault ! lol

So, from Hammie, Geoff & myself, hope to see you all again real soon.

Take care,

pottsy

Blimey Steve mate, you sure? we played a lot of records in 6 hours. There is one little classic oldie that I love playing, Innocent Bystanders - Frantic Escape. A record you kind of grow up with & just take for granted, but then when you wack a couple of thousands watts up its jacksy, wow, it does sound good !

Agree about Frantic Escape. There are a few like that eh? Just thought that you deserve to let the rest know what they are missing. I prefer the old style 60,s dancers, but I love the 70,s stuff and even more modern soul. Not keen on RnB or this Latin groove stuff but it was a very good mix and should have catered for most tastes IMO. Even heard one that I did not know AND is now a want.

That for me is the mark of a good night.

Anyhow IF you can put upa list great, but not the end of the world.

Cant promise I can make next time, Stockport is a long way north!!

Regards

Steve

Hi, a bit late as this night was two weeks ago, but just wanted to say how much I enjoyed Stewartby. To describe it as an 'oldies night' isn't accurate (I don't know if anyone did this time, but I have heard as such before). The variety and quality of music was what you would expect from a big allnighter, but with a bit more variety- not just northern-there were quality classics like Flash McKinley, Judy Freeman & Blackrock, Etta James, Celeste Hardie, a nice bit of RnB, plus Latin soul tracks like Hard Hands (R Baretto) and a good variety of modern from 70s through to 00s. Quite a few unusual bits played and even going a bit funk-ways, like a version of 'You Don't Mean it' which was not Towanda Barnes. (who was it?). Personally I was dancing pretty much all the time I was there. The DJs came prepared with big boxes of records, took requests, and clearly some thought had gone into the musical structure of the night- it didn't 'peak' too early, pace-wise. The room's a nice size with plenty of seating, and the dancefloor is good and nicely positioned. For a value night out (a FIVER) I'd definitely recommend it.
