First visit to this venue and it was a fantastic day. Top music from all the Djs, loved them al but Sean Chapman stood out because he takes risks by playing records some DJs wouldn't dare to

A brilliant venue, great atmosphere and the dance floor was still busy when we left at 11pm

we will definately be back for more

Well Vinny what can I say!!

The Box kicked All The Boxes !!! See what I did there !!!

The atmospher was Fookin electric in the place!!!

When we were watching Tommy Hunt Sean Chapman said to me " This is like an Audience With Tommy Hunt,," Sean was spot on,,, Tommy seemed ,,, So relaxed talking to us all like he knew each and everyone of us personally ,, it was so different rather just the main acts coming on and banging out all theirs one after another,,

I have to say the whole thing is a pro set up,,, The Venue,, The Facilites, The Sound System (to die for),, The Warm Welcome,,, ,,,

Thanks for the great hospitality Vinny too , me and Daz had a great time

You have something special there guys ,,

Just to say a few words on behalf of Russ, Vinnie and myself and staff at The Box.

We were truly overwhelmed by all your support. Its hard to adequately describe the atmosphere in there on Sunday. that you all helped to create. but WOW what a session!

We really appreciate how you all gave up your time and hard earned to support us.

The fact that it took place on a Sunday makes this a really fantastic effort on your behalf and gives tremendous kudos to you all...WELL DONE!

We were amazed at the distances some of you travelled and again we are so so grateful for your efforts...thanks a million!!

A couple of quotes told to me on Sunday... Firstly

'Wow what a venue...You can't help but talk to someone in here..brilliant!!'

This in essence sums up The Box...due to its size we will never ram it to the rafters with hundreds and hundreds of people..and indeed we dont want to!!.Its central to us that its a friendly,intimate venue and it attempts to create its 'own vibe; unique to the place..in a way its got a 'retro' feel of clubs from the 60's/70's...

Secondly..

'Its just like an Audience with Tommy Hunt!!'

In an nutshell thats EXACTLY what it felt like during Tommy's performance. His chats and his anecdotes were truly from the heart..and it felt so individual to us all. His history with 'our scene' goes back 40 yrs.and to hear him wax lyrical about it is so moving....TOMMY HUNT...you are a true gent sir...take a bow!!!!..

Big big thanks to all the DJ's who kept the day/evening rocking..special mention to Sean Chapman as a Box virgin!!...The Box is a special venue and within seconds of entering earlier on in the day, it was he apparent..he 'gets it'!!!...say no more go get 'em Sean!!

..also thanks to Brian and Olly for taking some incredible photographs that 'capture the moment'.....thanks very much guys!!

Future plans?....well we shall continue with our regular first Sunday of the month 'Sunday Soul Sessions'..and have special 'one off' occasions either with live acts or a soul nights

Allnighters?....well yeah possibly after the great little shindig on New years Eve a few people have mentioned it....Let us know your thoughts folks....If the demand is there we'll get some sorted (subject to clashes of course)...we had an awesome vibe going on NYE...shall we go again?

To be added to my manifesto column!!!

First time ever in Crewe, mind you its only a 30 minute drive now!! I arrived outside the Box and was blown away by the massive sign age advertising the event, it was HUGE and could be seen for miles. I arrived at five and already there were quite a good crowd in and it was buzzing!! The venue has got a great vibe and is without doubt one of the best venues I have visited. Great size dance floor, big stage and an a upper balcony, which always adds to the atmosphere. Excellent music system and the The acoustics were loud and very clear! This room is used for regular live entertainment and it showed!! There was a separate room for chilling out and a well stocked bar. Saying that I was shown around the venue by promoter Vinny Soulshaker and there is massive scope for bigger and better things! Too be honest I was totally blown away by the venue! DJs for the day were Jez Jones, Russ Winstanley, Brian Rae, Soul Stew, Dave Evison, Vinny Soulshaker and myself. Music was mainly 60s northern but I played a varied mix of northern mod and a couple of boss sounds and finishing off with the Small Faces. Tommy Hunt as always gave a very polished and sincere performance singing all his classics. Crackin Up, Soul In The Sun, You Got It, Living On The Losing Side and Workin plus several others I cannot remember! In between each song it gave us a bit of history and a few antidotes, it was like an audience with Tommy Hunt. Massive respect to Tommy who is 80 this year, and who has served the northern soul community with great distinction and has always been so approachable and easy going. Afterwards he spent loads of time signing and chatting to everyone. Really enjoyed the event and will be back at some time. This events takes place on the first Sunday of every month 3-8 and a great way to spend a Lazy Sunday Afternoon. Well done Vinny and Jez! TOP ENTERTAINMENT and a massive recommendation!! Sean Chapman
