Fri 2nd August 2013 - CALIENTE (Peterborough) - Free entry

August is here and for those not away on holiday we are out to help Birthday boy KEV DRAPER with his annual knees up birthday bash. Kev Draper is (obviously) our main guest DJ - he also just happens to be one of the DJ legends on the Northern Soul scene - lets help him celebrate his birthday in style. We also have Kev’s lovely wife DENISE DRAPER playing some quality tunes from her own collection. We are also pleased to announce we have resident DJ:  STEVE JAY (no Carl this time as he is on holiday) also MICK BEEBY alongside Russ and I (me pulling out a few humble offerings). It's free entry again so get yourself to Caliente, Peterborough. A great night is sure to be had looking at current activity on FB. If you missed Kev's do last year then check out the feedback and photo’s in the link below:

The evening runs from 8pm to 1am - doors open from about 7.00pm for any thirsty/hungry early birds wanting bar &/or food or to reserve a table or one of the sofas. Music is from 8pm - or earlier 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 . 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

 

 

Previous nights at Caliente:

 

Our last night at Caliente was a birthday night for Russ & I celebrating before the big five'O hits us both next year! Our special guest was ROB GRAY who played a blinder - best 6ts Northern spot I've heard for a long time. We were also entertained by STEVE JAY and CARL FORTNUM as well ‘Mr early doors’ MICK BEEBY who played some crackers having dug out a few lesser played 45's. [see link for review/feedback]

 

 

 

Back in May we had 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.
