Fri 5th July 2013 - CALIENTE (Peterborough) - Free entry

The next Northern Soul night at “Club Caliente” in Peterborough will be on Friday 5th July 2013. This is a Birthday knees up Russ & I celebrating before the big five'O hits us both next year! Once again it's FREE entry so you just need a few pounds for a drink or two. This time round we have resident DJ’s CARL FORTNUM and STEVE JAY (who have been with us since the beginning over 5 years ago) plus we have great pleasure to announce that we have secured a spot from our special guest ROB GRAY. We are also pleased to be joined behind the decks by ‘Mr early doors’ himself MICK BEEBY who will be by popular demand, playing some tunes later as the night unfolds. We will be playing a quality mix of Northern Soul from the 60’s through the 70’s/80’s and beyond, 6ts Soul + R&B etc. — all QUALITY tunes from original vinyl.

 

The evening runs from 8pm to 1am (doors open from about 6.30pm for any thirsty/hungry early birds wanting bar &/or food or to reserve a table or one of the sofas. Music is from about 7pm - once I’ve got the turntables up and running. For further details see the attached flyer, email back or call Russ on 0796 843 7250 .
 

Previous nights at Caliente:

 

Our last Caliente was in May and this was our 4TH ANNIVERSARY which was celebrated in style with a good turn out and some great music from our resident DJ’s CARL FORTNUM and STEVE JAY plus we had the welcome return of JOHN ALDRIDGE who once again pulled out some superb 6ts Soul including several very rare 45's. Good to see MICK BEEBY take up our request to play some tunes later on in the night rather than holding on to his early doors slot. Plenty of action on the dance floor, several anoraks hogging round the turntables (one advantage having the decks out in front) and a good number as always staying to the very last record. [see link for review/feedback]

 

 

Prior to May Caliente was in March with (a fully fit and recovered) CARL FORTNUM and fellow resident STEVE JAY who delivered the quality sounds from 60s/70s/80s and beyond that the regulars now expect from our nights at Caliente. We enjoyed BRETT SMITH so much last time round (stepping in for Carl) that we asked him back to be our main guest, we were not disappointed with the selections played by Brett. We feel proud to be doing our bit to help these younger guys give us their take on what needs playing out these days. MICK BEEBY covered the early doors session again playing some very nice 45’s prompting several of the regular early birds to ask if Mick can play a few of these tunes later on in the night? We agree, so this will happen on our May date. [see link below for photos]



For our Christmas Knees up we welcomed special guest for the night HAMMIE who pulled out some big ticket 45's as well as some cracking lesser knowns which kept the dance floor busy and encouraged a couple of us anoraks to have a look over the decks to see what was playing - one of the advantages of having the turntables out front in full view of the dancers and those propping up the bar. Unfortunately CARL FORTNUM was suffering from Man Flu (A47 strain - particularly nasty!) so in stepped (a not so young any more) BRETT SMITH with STEVE JAY being a great sport leaving his box(es) open for Brett to play a great set from. [see link below for photos]

Prior (to our December knees up) the last Caliente was in October with Russ, Carl, Steve and myself fresh back from our ‘Jolly Boys Outing” with all four of us DJ’ing at the Skegness Weekender. It was great also to see the return of PHIL RAINS and early doors support from Mick Beeby pulling out some lovely underplayed tunes from 60’s and 70’s.

Back in August we helped Birthday boy KEV DRAPER as our main guest DJ, one of the DJ legends on the Northern Soul scene, celebrate his birthday in style. We also had Kev’s lovely wife DENISE DRAPER playing some quality tunes from her own collection. A great night was had by all. If you missed this one then check out the feedback and photo’s in the link below:

caliente..... does what it says on the tin (not that i've ever seen a tin of caliente)

mick bee-bee

russ & ray

Carl fortnum and steve jay... not many better resident teams anywhere.

rob gray (guest) played a most excellent set, specially one track (can't remember what it was called) the toppest track in a night of across-the-board top tracks, will most certainly be back at the next one, we left it way to long returning to this one.

most certainly the finest soul night one could wish for (bar none)

Well our crowd really enjoyed the evening. The ‘bleeding obvious’ has now dawned on me - if you pick an event run by people who have a similar history to you, it stands to reason that you will be well catered for.

 

The ratio of different styles of music was just right for me, along with a nice atmosphere - Thanks to all involved.

 

See you again.

 

All the best,

 

Len :thumbsup:
