Hi Guys

Well that's two of you coming!

The lovely Alison has got ticket No.1 again!!

Ticket sales are double on this time last year for Darrow, so it looks like being a packer.

We have had requests for tickets from all over the UK. The Wilton crowd and our locals always seem to leave it to the last minute, so be warned, don't leave it too late, we don't want to have to turn anybody away especially our regulars.

 

This night is going to be something very very special. Debbie is getting so excited, she can't wait to get over to the UK to do her debut performance.

 

We need a capacity crowd to welcome her, so get your tickets to hear this fabulous lady of soul  -  DEBBIE TAYLOR

 

Debbie will be performing her Northern Soul classics from the 60's along with Crossover/Modern songs and some spine tingling Deep Soul songs that we have all been waiting to hear her perform live for such a long time.

Debbie (Maydie Myles) will also be performing the track "Kiss Of Life" from her latest (2011) cd album "The Ones I Love"

 

Remember this is the only concert Debbie is performing in the UK.

 

Here's an update on the concert:

 

 

Debbie Taylor will be making her debut performance in the UK at the New Wheatsheaf Conference & Banqueting, Altofts Lane, Whitwood, Castleford, WF10 5QB. This venue has been the home of the legendary Wilton Allnighter for almost 20 years. Although the allnigher sadly closed last year, the promoters continue with their Soulful Sessions Nights which include occasional live acts from the US. Last year Darrow Fletcher, direct from the Windy City, performed an amazing set that will be remembered for a very long time by the capacity crowd who attended.

Saturday 9th November 2013  features a very special debut performance in the UK from the fabulous Debbie Taylor (Maydie Myles) supported by PUSH, an incredible full eight piece band including background vocalists. Band leader and bass player Ernie McKone has secured a very special keyboard player for the night, no other than Mick Talbot. Mick is the former keyboard player for the Style Council; he played with them for over 6 years until they split. Prior to joining them he was with Dexys Midnight Runners and then went on to work with Paul Weller. The night will run from 9.00pm through till 3.00am. Debbie’s two performances will commence around 11.30pm.

 

                                                   Please note there will be no admission after 11.00pm.

 

Dj's on the night will be Arthur Fenn - Mike Charlton - Boxy - Mouse

A few of the songs Debbie will be performing at this special night at the Wilton:

 

" Just Don't Pay"  / "I Don't Wanna Leave You" / "Don't Let It End" / " I Have Learned To Do Without You" / "Kiss Of Life" / "No Deposit, No Return" plus other classics she recorded in the 60/70’s
 

 

Get your tickets early to avoid missing this fantastic night.

Tickets now available at: www.wheatsheaf.com/allnighter by Paypal or Credit Card.

Admission: Advance Tickets £15 + Paypal and Postal charges or £18 OTD if not sold out.

LATEST UPDATE - Debbie Taylor Concert at Wilton’s Soulful Sessions - 9th November.


I spoke to Debbie last night, and she is so excited about coming to the UK to make her debut performance at the Wilton’s Soulful Sessions night. We are initially planning that Debbie will perform two 30 minute sets with a 30 minute break, commencing around 11.30pm. The night will run from 9.00pm - 3.00am. Debbie will perform her recordings from all eras - 60’s Northern / 70’s and Crossover Soul including some spine tingling Deep Soul songs; in fact something for every taste. Debbie’s performances will be supported by eight London based musicians and vocalists, assembled by bass player Ernie McKone, owner of Boogie Back Records. DJ’s on the night are Arthur Fenn, Mike Charlton, Boxy & Mouse, so be assured there will be some great records played throughout the night. A number of record dealers have requested tables at the event so there will be plenty of soulful vinyl available on the night. This night is going to be something very, very special, a fantastic night not to be missed. We have spent a lot of time and money setting up this event, so all we need now is your support to make this night a success and something you, not forgetting Debbie Taylor, will remember for a very long time. Remember this may not happen again so get your tickets secured; details below.


Ticket sales are going well, but we still have a few left to sell. Everybody we speak to say they are attending but many haven’t bought tickets yet.


Ticket Hot Line: http://www.wheatsheaf.com/allnighter


The last date for PayPal orders for postal delivery is 31st October; these will be mailed out on 1st November which should allow time for tickets to reach you before the event, even if the planned one day postal strike goes ahead.


Any PayPal orders received after 31st October will be acknowledged by email, stating your ticket number, and must be collected on the night.


At this stage, with three weeks to go, we have tickets available at £18.00 on the door, but if we have a mad rush for tickets approaching the concert date, which was the case last year for the Darrow Fletcher event, we can’t guarantee that.


Tickets at £15.00 will be available at the following events: Just Soul; Red Bar Wakefield; Scottish Soulful Weekender (Dumfries). Please help us get the word out.


Tickets can also be ordered by phone on the following lines: Boxy - 01924 894555; Mouse - 07717 338009; Mike Charlton - 07946 434621.


Please note no tickets will be reserved for collection on the night unless paid for in advance. This is only fair to those who have paid well in advance and helped us with cash flow whilst setting up this event.


There will be no admission after 11.00pm.


For anyone arriving early or staying over, the Wheatsheaf Pub, adjacent to the venue, has a top class restaurant with carvery and bar meals available during the day: Saturday from 12.00 — 2.00 pm and 5.00 pm — 8.30 pm in the evening, Sunday lunch 12.00 — 8.00 pm


 See website for menus.  http://www.wheatsheaf.com

Debbie Taylor LIVE............discuss.

WOW.......WOW......WOW.

I closed my eyes and it was like listening to a record with headphones on.

Total respect to Debbie and a huge pat on the back to Dave Box & Mike Charlton ( of Smashy & Nicey fame) and their long suffering ladies for making this happen and the band who you would think had been playing Debbie Taylor songs all there lives.

The memory will not fade as time goes by and Debbie's vocals will hold that note for longer!

That'll be a night I won't forget in a hurry. Oh my goodness, can Maydie still sing or what? Each note was sung with depth, clarity, power, passion and emotion and resonated through us all. At one point she was holding a note and one of the backing singers clapped her in awe - just as we all did. The woman is amazing and it was an honour to have her sing for us.

Should you get the chance to ever hear her for yourselves, you really should - you won't be disappointed!

What an amazing performance and evening! My first trip to the Wilton (chauffeur to Brian & Cathy from sunny Northants :thumbsup: ) and one I'll never forget, thanks so much to all involved.

 

I'll leave all the good photos to those who had the decent cameras etc, but I did manage to take a couple which I think capture just how much effort Maydie put into her vocals and how genuinely blown away she was with the response from everyone. How good is that band and backing singers too?!!!

 

Cheers, Steve.

Not a live artist fan but if you are Maydie should top of your "must see" list,the Lady had it all.........and then sum.

The backing band were worth seeing on there own.

Highlight of the night for me was seeing The Wilton rammed,one of the best one room venues in the country without a doubt.

The icing on the cake was seeing so many old mates who I've not seen in ages,the banter was relentless & I've not laughed so much in one night in a long while.

Hearing Mel Williams-Sweet Girl Of Mine was worth entrance fee alone

Well done Mouse n Dave

Cheers

Troop;

 

On two occasions recently I have been totally blown away by this wonderful music, Richard Caiton singing "I wonder will you always love me" to a rammed lounge at Soul Essence, Prince Phillip Mitchell singing "There's another in my life" at Soul4Real in Bilbao but Debbie Taylor smashed them out of the park with "I dont wanna leave you", a truly masterful and emotional performance that will stay with me forever.The close runner up was "I have learned to live my life without you", sheer heaven.

 

Thankyou Dave, Val and Mouse for a truly wonderful evening and one I doubt will be matched for some time to come.

Absolutely one of the best nights ever...well done all..Debbie you are without doubt now up there alongside my number one live performances seen ever, and ive seen Bobby womack , sounds of blackness, David Sea, Garland Green the Dramatics, LJ Reynolds, Sam Dees, Tashan, Incognito, the list can go on and on and on.. but last night was awesome...awesome awesome..that girl can sing.... i didnt want it to end...

 

Massive support also to the backing band ..how tight were they...ouch and the two backing singers. maaaaan it was the complete package.

 

After darrow fletcher there were some negative comments about the rest of the night with djs playing b sides etc (i dont know why people said that but anyway.)..BUT Last night everything was perfect djs on top form i had my sober head on and was dancing frequently unknown for a sober geordie so it was bloody good....

 

It was the full package and if the tickets had been 3 times the price more.. i would still say now that id underpayed it was that good

 

So please please please when are you back Debbie

 

 

Geeeoooooordie

The place was rammed which only added to the great atmosphere

 

Debbie Taylor and the band were top notch and fantastic music all through the evening from the DJ's

 

Easily the best night we've had out this year - hope the guys are going to continue this format with another great guest next time - any chance of more than one a year please?

Tried again, and still failed, I have just listened to both her sets again, and once more have been reduced to tears. Links to the recordings are on my facebook page - and are well worth a listen. Thanks to Tabs for recording her on his phone and sharing x

I completely agree, ALL the deejays need to take a bow, they played their hearts out and kept the dancefloor happy with a great mix of music.  

 

I personally welcomed the Northern/Rare Soul that was played last night, as it was that very music that got the Wilton where it is today, so it thoroughly deserved to be mixed in with the classy Modern that was being played.

 

A fantastic night that will take some beating

Fantastic night!!! & great recording !!!

First things first, thanks Dave and Mike for making this happen, think I can say was a good as it gets, Incredible singer, fantastic backing, fantastic knowledgeable crowd and of course the incredible material to bring it all together, was fortunate enough to meet Debbie at The Hotel, tried not to be star struck but I reckon I was cos I have loved her for years, the atmosphere in the pub and then the venue was crackling all night. Got a feeling she will be back after the reception that she got, the tickets will go in a couple of days thats for sure. Thanks Ali for my birthday drink to add to the perfect night x

That was a pure pleasure to witness such an incredible artist, what a voice, fab backing singers, unbelievable backing band ( including Mick Talbot) off the Style Council on key boards, they got every single note spot on. Big thanks to the guys who put this on, know how much hard work goes into arranging a gig. The tunes were top notch all night.

Debbie Taylor will go down in history after that performance as one of the greatest live performers to grace these shores.

One word for the whole night - unforgettable !

Flanny we have loads of pictures as we were near the front. I will send them through to your Debbie on Facebook or drop me a message with your mobile as I will be getting some printed.

Thank You          Thank You        Thank You      Thank You!

 

 

I would like to thank everybody who attended on Saturday 9th November. People queuing at the door at 8:15 when we planned to open at 9:00. People on the floor by 9:30. The start of something very special was about to happen. Who were all the people piling through the door? — many of the most knowledgeable, long standing fans on the UK soul scene from  all four corners of the country.

 

What was the occasion? — Debbie Taylor’s debut performance in the UK.

 

What can I say about the night that hasn’t already been said? -  absolutely fantastic from start to finish.

 

When Debbie joined the band on stage for rehearsals and the band hit the intro to “Don’t Nobody Mess With My Baby” we all held our breath; for any live act promoter this is a crucial moment. We all melted - hey, has someone put the 45 on the decks? no, this was live, incredible! Debbie sailed through all 12 songs and left us all speechless. I looked at Mike and the others in disbelief; Mike had tears in his eyes and said ‘I think we’ve cracked it’.

 

Debbie did make a few fine adjustments to the arrangements and changed a key or two, which were quickly adopted by the band. The whole rehearsal was sheer perfection. Can it get any better on the night? — Well from what you all say on this thread, yes it did, and more.

 

Thank you time:

 

To Debbie Taylor: for being such a fabulous lady to deal with during the build up to the show and for the sensational performance she delivered on the night, not forgetting the time she spent with you all signing everything you put in front of her, until the early hours after the show.

 

To the band: they are equally as important to a show as the artist. I would like to thank my friend Ernie McKone for assembling a group of musicians second to none. A special thank you to our keyboards man Mike Talbot for agreeing to be part of our special night. Background vocalists — Wow!! Sam & Janessa were just fantastic, their support for Debbie was just great but their little solo parts, encouraged by Debbie, were just sublime.

To the sound guys: A fabulous artist, and band, but without a professional sound team and PA equipment, which is the third essential part of a show, we would have been in trouble.  I would like to thank John & Chris (JSS Audio) for their constant attention to the sound quality throughout the show, which made a great show fantastic.

 

To the DJs: What can I say, I was one of them! Along with Arthur Fenn, Mike Charlton & Mouse - a great mix of tunes, something for everybody’s taste, just great soul music. Thank you for your support.

 

To the team: Thanks to Mike and Jenny for their support from the start, when I first suggested the project at Soul Essence, back in April this year. To Val, the boss, for putting up with my tantrums and skilfully dealing with all financial aspects and ticketing. To Mouse for ticket sales, promotion and helping prepare the venue.

 

To the venue staff: Thanks for support and willingness to provide every request I threw at you; Website use, catering, venue facilities, etc, etc.

Special thanks to Rob Lawrence and Hazel (Caister Weekenders) for security for Debbie and general help on the door.

 

To you the fans: A show like this would be pointless without you. Debbie went home after an experience she will never forget. She told you on the night, from the stage, how she felt, and continued until we put her safely on the plane.

 

What’s next at the Wilton’s Soulful Sessions: I haven’t a clue right now. I think it would be impossible to top this, maybe we will have Debbie back again — What do you think? Watch this space.

 

Thank you

 

Dave (Boxy)

Just like to echo everything said so far, what a fantastic night, Debbie Taylor and the whole band and backing singers were awesome, incredible to put on a show like that after 1 rehearsal session earlier that day and that Debbie/Maydie no longer sings the songs she performed, what a powerful vocal, superb.......

 

A massive thanks to Dave,Val, Mike & Jenny and any one else involved in making this night possible.

 

Look forward to the next one and if its half as good it will be special.

Here are my photo's from Saturday, apologies for the quality on some, but my camera was on it's last legs (especially after THAT performance!!)    The Debbie Taylor pictures do get better towards the end as I was kindly pushed to the front during the second half of the concert 

 

Enjoy x
