It really was fantastic last night. An atmosphere akin to an anniversary I thought. Loads of energy, the dancefloor was still full when we left at 5.30. :) I had a few 'moments' last night-getting goosebumps when Keith Money played Harvey Averne Dozen and everyone on the dancefloor was clapping at the same time and smiling watching Matt Bolton who was totally lost in the music with his arms in the air at some points!

 

Stellar line up who didn't disappoint but man of the match for me was Keith. He had that tricky spot at around 5am when people are starting to flag and he kept the floor full with brilliant record after brilliant record!

 

Thanks to Ady and his team. The 100 club isn't the country's longest running all nighter for nothing! See you next time!

If you had read a couple of comments on Soul Source this week and not gone to last night's 100 Club allnighter you might have been under the impression that the attendees had all been demanding Supremes' hits and spent the evening dancing around their handbags which had been carefully laid out to cover the “crevasses” in the dance floor. Fortunately you would have been completely wrong.

 

Musically the night specialised in high class danceable soul music, much of it on the rare side, but that didn't stop people dancing. While there were a few non soulies, there were no handbags on the dance floor, and the vast majority present were there for the music and camaraderie.

 

I arrived at 11.15, and already there were quite a few people dancing to Keith Money. I got myself sorted out and bought a drink and next on was Ady. Joel followed, playing his usual mix of lesser and better known tunes.

 

Butch took over the decks next, playing tunes including Good News, Salvation, Shake Cheri, It's All Over Baby, Beware, Look At You and a few that I didn't recognise.

 

Ady did his second set next, among his records played were his Gerri Grainger cover up Why Can't It Be Tonight and the Demures' I Want To Be Good To You, I normally dance to both of them but was talking to friends. Among others he played was Baby Don't You Weep by Luther Ingram and a popcorny track at the end.

 

The guest DJ Andy Dyson was next and started off with the Ravins. There were quite a few of his set that I wasn't familiar with, and he included various requests.

 

To follow Andy it was Keith's second set, and he continued to keep the dance floor busy.

 

Then it was time for Joel's second set. He included Billy Byrd's Lost In The Crowd in his set which I haven't heard for some time.

 

Butch was the next DJ, his second set. Among the records he played was Romona King's You've Been Cheatin' and he followed it with the Superbs' Wind In My Sails, lovely music.

 

He was quickly followed by Andy Dyson who included the Profs' There Was A Woman, flip to Look At You and the alternate version of Crazy Baby titled My Heart's Wide Open which I'd requested. He also played Sam & Bill's I'll Try, an oldie that isn't too overplayed.

 

By then it was 5 am, the night was flying by, Keith took over for his third set, hard working guy. In this set he included some slower and medium tempo tunes and ended with Bob & Red’s I'll Be On My Way.

 

As usual for the last 30 minutes it was Ady, playing a nice mix including Sweet Temptation and ending with Pat Thomas' I Can't Wait Until I See My Baby's Face, Chuck Jackson's wonderful Any Day Now and finally Baby I Need Your Loving by the Four Tops. Then the time to say farewell and gather up our bags and coats to the strains of That's What Mama Say by Walter Jackson.

 

There was a very decent sized crowd in, and many stayed until the end, dance floor busy which was nice to see. Loads of my friends present, Billy, still doing spins and splits at 5.45 am. Usual reprobates, Tabs, Trickster, Taffy and Rachel, Gary and Rolly, Bearsy, hadn't seen him for don't know how long, Dave Greenhill with his flyers, and wearing shorts, he must be tough as it was really cold when I left; Simsy and Kylee, Lee, Matt, Tony Smith, Julie Moore, Imogen, John and Jen, and many other regulars, sorry if I've missed you but as usual mind has gone blank. Particularly good to see accompanying Andy Dyson were Nicola, Ian and Chalky; and a big surprise to see Arthur and Maria, long time since I've seen you down here.

 

Everyone I spoke to enjoyed it immensely, a great selection of soul music to suit most tastes I think. Once again Ady and co have done the business, keep up the good work.

What I should have added was that I had to PM Ady to get the DJ order correct as I was unsure of the early running order, memory once again running down after a nighter, thanks for your assistance Ady.

Every now and again something special happens and last nights 100 club gig was one of them.

The BluePosts routine drink was misleading as the Allnighter had a unique Buzz that happens when all the right ingredients come together.

Welldone Ady , when i arrived it looked like you were doing every role in the club,cashier , cloakroom , Djing, obviously just a front till all the team were there. All the soul friends and characters were in the house last night.

Must mention two soul veterans who hit the club for the first time last night , Mark from Manchester and Tony from York who happened to be working near the "Big Smoke" and decided to pop in before work on Sunday .Both of them had such a good time they pushed their departure time till 04.15 am.They both left with saturated T-shirts from dancing all night.

It was well worth the visit to the 100 club despite the 3.5 hours waiting at Liverpool street station for the first train back to Norwich.

Welldone to all the "100 club family"

Well all been said, what a night. DJs Music. Everyone there in a friendly mood, staff very polite. Had a nice little chat with Bearsy, top man. Seeing my long lost friend Richard Buckley, brought back some good memories. As I keep saying Ady, keep the good work up.

Cheers Billy

What a brilliant night. Top D.J.s playing top quality rare and underplayed soul to a crowd that wanted to be entertained and challenged. It was almost as if there was a subconscious coming together in defiance to the comments about over played oldies and handbags that have been made elsewhere. Ady and the other (DJ) keepers of the faith ensured that the 100 Club remains at the top of its game and I think that as an audience we responded by maintaining a full dance floor with a crackin`atmosphere.  

Keep on keepin on Ady, its been a great year for the 100 Club and long may it continue.

Cheers Charlie

Sorry I'm late adding my twopennyworth! I'd had a friend's (non-soulie) 40th birthday night, so turned up fashionably late at 3am, but boy was I glad I did. I hadn't been there long when Butch got on - awesome as always. Great to see so many old faces/friends - Billy, Simsy, Matt Bolton, Kev Collins and lots and lots more.

I know I'm probably biased because I'm 42 and we (me and Gareth Thomas - Mossy - and a few other mod mates) started going to the 100 Club nighters when we were 17/18, but to me it is still THE coolest nighter/venue (all that history and not just soul!) with the best rare soul as it was when we were in those formative years. In them days you couldn't hear the sounds anywhere else so you had to travel - no MP3s then (thank goodness). Stuff like Ben E King "Getting To Me" and my personal fave Gerri Granger - Why Can't It Be Tonight - me and Mossy used to launch ourselves at the dancefloor like exocet missiles - so exciting!

However many years I missed or some years when I only manage to get to 1 or 2, it's still just in my blood; a part of my being if you like. It's like one of your best pals and no matter how much time you spend apart when you hook up again it's like you've never been away and it all clicks instantly. I guess it's our Wigan in a very different way. And as has been said on this thread, the music is still cutting edge. Love it!

So thank you Ady, ignore the doom-mongers and keep up the bloody excellent work! We do appreciate it.

Rich
