Big thanx to all who came to gogo last nite,especially our guests martyn and john.Great sets by both, john playing mainly rnb and northern oldies while martyn was mixing it up a bit of latin and lesser known quality stuff aswell

 

We had quite a few in early doors but took a little time before they found their feet on the dancefloor.Alhough numbers were up with about 100 in we seemed to have a lot of our 'rare' lovers missing this week but a lot of new faces which seemed to be more into their oldies..to begin with ...once they found their feet the dancefloor  stayed busy through john stapleton funky edged tunes and our later slots which included some of first time spins, as always ran out of time with so many unplayed

 

2 oclock came and there was still dancers on the floor so another sucsess and judging by the facebook comments most seemed to enjoy it so thanx again all the travellers from London,swindon,taunton,Worcester,cheltenham,gloucester,wiltshire and south wales and as always Bristol

 

next month we have rugbys dave rimmer and shane kent from Cheltenham guesting

 

cheers

Dean & John

Home safe & sound,great journey both ways which helps.That might have been our first visit to Go Go's but certainly won't be our last,we had a great time and the night had everything,great venue,great music,great atmosphere & a crowd who were willing to listen & dance to something a bit different.Great to bump into Karen & Ezzie who I'd not seen for ages,also got to meet Des Parker after all these year(& bought a record off him of course :lol: ).I can guarantee there will be more of us next time we come down after I spread the news around our gang.

So keep up the great work boys you've got a gem of night :thumbsup:

Cheers
