Hi guys - Vincent, the Govenor !!

Love the venue, love the promoters and love the Music Policy.

Can you play The Flasher ??

If it wasn't just around the corner I would still travel to be there.

John Vincent has massive credentials and Chris Brooke is a quality act, seen him at a shed load of venues and never lets you down. Gonna be a banging night. Last times was very busy so better get in early, you will not be disappointed !!!

There seems to have been a few brown cardboard boxes - 45 rpm record size - coming through our door at a pace these last few weeks: so I am guessing Mr C has one or two new sounds to play on Saturday!!

Can honestly say that I am tingling with anticipation for this night. What a way to start a new venue. The guys last month and now Brookes and Vincent. Can we have an early afternoon session as well ??

Will have Brid Tickets if anyone needs some. Going faster than ever so get 'em while you can.

See you all there and I suggest you get in early 'cause its gonna be a packer !!

Can say it was a great first night last month and this one looks to be even better.

Hope you have a great night, just a pity we can't make this one.

Thanks Kev - enjoy your break and will see you both soon x

Tezza- good idea about an afternoon session but not sure if everyone would last the pace lol! Still we have a full 5 hours tonight and a bit more if you turn up when Chris and Mort are setting up!!

Really good vibes about tonight so see you all later !

Just a little warning. Not wanting to offend anybody, but, if you are coming to Hollingwood tonight dont expect to hear thinks like, Joy Lovejoy, In Orbit or Millie Jackson, House for sale or the likes. if that's the case please go somewhere else, this night is probably not for you. Besides this is a soul club not just another soul night.

Respect.

Chris

See you next week at North Wings then Chris !!

Hurrah - A man after my own heart. Thousands of quality tracks out there gathering dust. Sweep away the cobwebs and give 'em a bit of air.

We shouldn't have to demand it, we should expect it. See you later guys and girls.

That didn't sound like that in my head.

Not a disparaging remark about NW - Never miss that one, always a great night.

So how's Derby doing Steve ( quick change of subject )XX

Could see you were enjoying yourself. enjoyed doing it, its difficult to break away from the current mindset either as a punter or a promoter, quality from our guest djs not trying to re invent the wheel but get away from hearing the same boring stuff nice talking to you have you washed that shirt yet lol

Superb evening at Hollingwood.....big thank you to Mort & Chris for inviting me to do a spot -

Had a ball.....had a great time spinning plenty of underplayed sounds and the crowd were up for it too.

Lovely venue ran by two great lads with a marvelous music policy - we'll be back for more of the same next month

cheers,

Chris Brooke

Glad you enyoyed yourself Chris, nice to have some freedom to play something different, All our guest djs can feel free to play different stuff if they wish. Mort and I can dish up some regular stuff along with our own stamp on something different. Was a pleasure having you along.

Fantastic night Chris,

as you know the 2nd night is always harder than the first when starting a new venue up , but you passed that test with flying colours with a full house again.

Nice selection of tunes on offer all night from all the dj's which kept dragging Tommo to the dance floor when he was in mid conversation with me :lol:

Looking forward to next month.

Nice to hear the very positive feedback from all concerned, I enjoyed myself too last night which probably down to being more relaxed than at 1st event !

Thanks to Chris Brooke & John for their great spots, as Chris Cooper says all booked DJs have freedom to express themselves with whatever they think fits in with our music policy. They will not be under pressure to keep a full floor or play more 'stompers' [as i was asked, to ask a DJ to do last night !] Its their hour / their floor !!!

Looking forward to a good turn out for March's event with Mick H & Al Taylor, should be another belter !

Nice to see a few 'old' faces out at Hollingwood as well last night, always good to have old mates around.

And plenty of new faces too which is always pleasing.

Cheers for now

Mort

I just received from John Vincent which i'm sure he won't mind me sharing with you......

Mort, Just to say I thoroughly enjoyed Saturday night and I hope everyone else did. I’ve being playing vinyl for 50 years and I still get a massive kick out of a night like Saturday and it makes it so worthwhile when I get a reaction like that…lol

I would love to do something special for you later on in the year — if this works with your plans?

All the best mate and just keep on keeping on…

Regards

John

What a brilliant night, well done Mort and Chris. Great to come out and hear so many underplayed records, it's what the scene has been lacking for a while now. All the Dj's did a good spot, but for us John Vincent made the night, hope to see him djing more often again! With a music policy like this,know next month and every month thereafter will be just as good. Look forward to it, Tina and Phil.

I agree: Mr V did a great hour of classic northern - proving ( even though we already know this!) that there are far more records out there then the usual overplayed tunes. Chris B also played a good spot mixing the unknown with the lesser known and a few well known for good measure!

There was a great atmosphere and, I think, appreciation from people there that our two guests took the opportunity to provide us with two hours of music that took some of us back in time to a bygone place and time and, for others, to hear some absolutely wonderful music for the first time! Mort and Chris also, despite having the added pressure of being joint promoters, treated us to quality and varied Northern Soul - Chris particularly veering towards some Cleethorpes classics which can't help but get your feet shuffling!!

Not long before we do it all again - see you on the first Saturday in March

Sorry we couldn't be there on Saturday as we needed to sort a few things out which couldn't (and wouldn't) wait any longer. Loved the first one and a great time was had by all. All the more gutted over the fact we missed the man himself-JV-and another of my old mates Chris Brooke gracing the decks again. Missed this one but rest assured that we will definitely be back. Thanks and well done to Chris and Mort for bringing this sorely missed venue back.
