Of course Nic,

 

Does 'Number 1' want a lift too? - It's about time I did the honours.

 

Eeeeek! - I've just realised I'm involved in a 'Sin' that is very near the top of my 'Shudder List' - We are having a 'personal conversation that has no interest whatsoever to anyone else on a thread'! :ohmy:

 

Apologies folkz - Nic, gis a ring to arrange 'logistics' (Great word that)

 

All the best,

 

Len :thumbsup:

Yes it's true - this year, Sam's actual birthday will be celebrated on the day!

Spoke to him again last night and he's really looking forward to celebrating with everyone and most importantly, swivelling those hips behind the decks (oh, be-have!).  I also see Mick H is asking us all to be good, but the mind boggles as to with what party treats he will have in store for us - good thing those tunes are much prettier than the masks he wears (boo!).   

 

Thanks to all who have reserved sales tables, please let me know if you require space as I have further names and we have a limit in the alcove.  Everyone is welcome to bring along their sales boxes for mobile sales, also don't forget flyers for your upcoming events.  A reminder that Dave Raistrick will be selling tickets for the Skegness Weekender on Saturday too. 

 

The restaurant will open for dinner, cocktails and the usual bar beverages are on order.... and the line-up of sounds is: 

 

4:00 pm - Soul Sam (60 min)

5:00 pm - Maria O (60 min)

6:00 pm - Arthur Fenn (60 min)

7:00 pm - Mick H (60 min)

8:00 pm - Maria O (75 min)

9:15 pm - Arthur Fenn (75 min)

10:30 pm - Mick H (75 min)

11:45 pm - Soul Sam (75 min)

 

* 1am (or not too long after 8-)) - close *

 

====

 

As always, please drop me a PM if I can help with anything.  We're not keen on sticks and hope you have a wonderful time at Boomerang.

LOL - guess you don't do the chicken dance at big weddings, not one to be missed.

 

The birthday boy crossed the Pennines last night and has had his breakfast now, chillin with the Saturday paper and tv - and keeps asking me how many are coming to Boomerang today.  Somehow I don't think Sam believes me when I say "I don't know", as I usually have an opinion about EVERYTHING!!! ;-)

Many thanks to everyone who came to Boomerang yesterday, hope you enjoyed yourselves.  Thanks to guest dj's Soul Sam, MickH and Arthur for opening their boxes and bearing their soul (of sounds).  I hope to have at least Sam's playlist up by later today, all depends if I can find the energy to type out near 4 hours worth of vinyl....

ps. the Lost Property Department is now open - message me 8-)

Here's most of Soul Sam's playlist, he was sitting and waiting so no escaping getting his vinyl babies down. He actually started his first spot at 3:30 and I scribbled down a delicious "want" that he didn't want typed out because it got played before the doors opened.

If I've spelt anything wrong, tuff ;-)

Apart from a slight snafu getting into the guest house this was an excellent and enjoyable trip up to my favourite soul club. Sam's first set was superb with the earlier ones not really being aimed at the dance floor, just good soul records, nearly all new to me. His second set included many of his big dance floor tunes, but plenty of new'uns too. He's got a great ability to mix older tunes with much more recent releases, that's not easy.

 

The other guest was Mick H, two top sets as usual, I'm sure one he played was the Mystics' Bring Back The One I Love, really good, also asked him about the Martiniques, the sort of tune I really like to hear. And thanks for playing Count The Days, you know I love that, and thanks also for your kind words, really nice of you.

 

Arthur played more great tunes, thanks for playing the Superbs for me, even if I was the only one out there dancing. That Bernard Drake record is beyond words in my opinion, absolutely marvellous. 

 

Not forgetting Maria, great stuff as usual madam. Good to see you and Arthur just a week after MonuMental.

 

One of the things I like most about Boomerang is that it's a friendly club, and  I meet loads of my friends on the soul scene there. There seemed to be people from all over the country, Bob Snow and co from Dorset, Mike Hodges from Gloucestershire, Ady and Drew from London, and of course many others from nearer Thorne. And I've always found the Canal Tavern staff most helpful and friendly, nice meal too, rabbit pie, haven't had that since I was a kid.

 

I must thank Mike Hodges for keeping me calm and collected, lol, when we had problems getting into the guest house, it does seem funny and trivial now, but I was a bit hot and bothered at the time. Oh well, far worse things happen, most things have a funny side.

 

Thanks to Maria, Arthur, Sam and Mick for a great evening, looking forward to November's Boomerang.

I forgot to add that it was Sam's 72nd birthday, what an inspiration he is, still looking for new or lesser known sounds andn with phenomenal enthusiasm. He was given a birthday cake, and he blew out the candles, obviously there weren't 72. Happy birthday Sam.

I had a lovely drive up to Boomerang in me Transit Van, I walked through the restaurant saying a quick hello to Gilly, Soul Sam, and Arthur Fenn (all having meals)….. A normal past time for most humans I know, but I thought it surreal for some reason, and it made me smile…..”Mmmmm, so they are normal like us” (I noted)…… :D

 

……I’m sure Maria won’t mind me saying this now (after such a successful event) But I did have my doubts on what the turnout was going to be - for no other reason than ‘the scene of today’ (lots of events, people skint, etc.) This was partly why I wanted to make the effort for this one. If we don’t use the events we believe in (whichever ones they may be) they will be gone - and that doesn’t mean having to go to ‘every single one’ (we all have lives) we just need to ‘make the effort’ every so often to ‘keep em all tickin’ along’ (That’s my view anyway)

 

Anyway, everyone had a fun day to some great soul music - It was lovely to see the place kicking with that ‘we’re deadly serious about our music, but we also have a laugh’ type atmosphere (Bob Snow / Dave Bentley et al)…..and of course, no less than ‘our’ Soul Sam deserves!

 

All the best,

 

Len :thumbsup:

 

N.B - Please note the above consists of some ‘tongue in cheek’, some ‘sarcasm’ (meant in the nicest possible way), and some ‘sincere thoughts’……if there’s any ‘words of wisdom’ left after that - well that’s a f*ckin’ bonus! :D
