New Years Resolution is to get up to Empty Bottles particularly as my daughter is at University in Leeds and Im sure she some of her friends would make it a night.

Cant make this one as i'm working on the Saturday morning but will make the next.

Heard lots of good things

Hope it goes well boys

good stuff :-)

be good to have you over John, was itching to get to York last night but left it too late to arrange a lift... Was no doubt a good one with Martyn and the residents...

Plenty of cheapskates confirmed already, looks like its gonna be another busy one... top mix of sounds on offer, Rare Soul, RnB, Funky sounds and maybe a little Latin judging on how well it went down last time....

You know it's the funky latin grooves that make EB stand out from all the rest, and I just LOVE that Manny Corchado. Hope someone plays it on Friday. Can't wait. Best soul night in town (and that's any town north, south, east and west of the Pecos btw)

Couple of PMs in for directions and parking....

Been trying to work out google maps and getting the map up on here but it's not happening?!? so might be best to type the post codes in on there to get directions....

Post code for Santiago is - LS1 6PG

Nearest car park is pretty much 1 street away and an NCP - LS2 7LP

If anyone can give better directions or copy and paste the google map that'd be great as I am fooooookin useless!

cheers!

Looks like being a packer! For those who haven't been before, don't worry about seats - not many to go round anyway. Oh yes, bring a fan as well......

Put down me, Mr Trevski and Andy Hudson for the cheapskate entry please......

Just got in and gotta say what a brilliant night I had at Empty Bottles, a super friendly venue that had a underground feel to it with a very receptive crowd that made dj'ing there an absolute pleasure, loved every minute of it :thumbup:.

Had to laugh when I overheard a young lady saying to a friend, "wow' did you hear that old guy play, he must be 60"...... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Will post my playlist up later.

A big well done and thank you to Richard and Eddie for asking me to play from my albums, was honoured guy's :hatsoff2:

Well done everyone concerned absolutely brilliant night.Rammed,anymore in & they,d have had to gone behind the bar as that was the only space left :D

Thought the music was quality all night,think all the dj's brought something to the party & then some.Well done lads :thumbsup:

It was a laugh a minute in "old mans" corner with those rather quite N. East lads leading the way & Craig & his crew not far behind (I wonder how Pete's head is this morning :facepalm:)

So put me down for another dose of that in a couple of months time please :thumbup:

Cheers

Martyn

PS Sandy the look on all your faces when you walked in was a picture...........told you it was small with not many seats :hypo:

Ha ha would have made a great photo!!! :P

First thoughts when i walked in was, "i cant stay here very long"! :unsure: .........but as we had brought Grant over and his last spot was 1-30 till 2-00 that decision was taken out of my hands. However i'm really glad that was the case cause we had a fantastic night, the music was excellent, the atmosphere was electric, absolutely rammed, sweat dripping off the walls, traipsing through a carpet of talc, everybody up for a great night. We did'nt leave till 02-45, what a fantastic night, great experience and would deffo come back again. :hatsoff2:

not had a hangover after a soul night since i got banned from drivng ten years ago. no such issues last nght having a chauffeur ( or chaufeusse in ths case).with benefits.... nudge nudge. thanks to martyn bird for the cds , great to see steve and richard and enjoy steve c s set. all sets were bloddy marvellous as we ve come to expect at this little smasher. great to bump into ian and his lovely wfe. wendy too and her lovely husband , n fact everyone includng the lovely barmaid who pored the pint of lemonade for my missus into her lovely handbag .good to see richard and andy h from york and lee. willie played some blinders though couldnt tell me what they were . mind you id have forgotten by this morning seem to remember talking about a t shirt with fluffer on it. would have been preferable to have the fluffer in it to be truthful but you cant have t all ways .back for more next month.

Hi aintgotit, thank you and glad you enjoyed them, think you asked me after i'd finished, sorry mate but the old grey cells were a wee bit scrambled after using all my concentration getting the tracks from the albums right :lol: lol, ie: what side to put on, finding the number of the track, wiping the vinyl down (for some reason the vinyl was steamed up!!! :huh: ), having to use a torch to cue the right track number up then doing it all over again and again :lol: , oh' and having a great time behind the decks and boy it was hot in there :sweatingbullets:.

Should be able to answer any questions, that's if you can remember :g::lol: .

Will put my playlist's up in Events-playlist tomorrow tho.

Willie

thanks for the feedback everyone, massively appreciated... have put a few tunes I played up in the playlist section to give you a flavour of what was played...

think all the djs played cracking sets. a big mix of genres but all the records spun had one thing in common.... that is was dance music, no exceptions.. that, along with the top crowd that was in, made the night what is was.

here's a video of Willie rockin' the place!!

see you all next time on Friday March 9th for our 1st anniversary night!!!
