Yep Mick, all those years ago and some of the pond life still wished it had fallen flat on its face.....lol. Were still adhering to the same rules, original records only, NO boots otherwise if would be free entry (as it should be)

 

Some great new DJs to add to to the line up / guest spinners list for April

 

Im getting lots of requests for people to DJ, please come and support it if you want to spin some tunes here, far roo many venues play dj swap these days, very boring and predictable imo

 

More info later and maybe an announcement to be made

 

cheers Paul

Does the statement...........Full DJ line up ...........mean a comprehensive list of who will be treating us to some exciting & imaginative soul dancers OR does it mean the dj's of the night are of the shall we say larger proportions & may struggle to fit into the snug dj booth :wicked:

Giddy already can't you tell :thumbup:

A few at York last night sticking there hands up to say they're coming,some regulars some newbie,so hopefully they'll make it :thumbsup:

Cheers

Here's directions from the M62 - M606, follow these and you'll find it dead easy!

At the end of the M606, take the Ring Road East, turn Left and go past McDonalds

You will then pass Yorkshire Building Society, continue straight forward over the next roundabout, go past Asda & The Cross Keys Pub all on your left
...
At the next Roundabout take the first left A650 (City Centre)

Go past The Gallopers Pub on your left to roundabout and take the second exit, (this is where you would have turned left for the old EBUC venue)

Continue on the main road (Wakefield Rd) to the next roundabout and take the first exit onto Prospect Street, straight over the mini roundabout onto Mill Lane, the pub can be found on your right just before the railway bridge on the top right of the pic in red circle.

Its about 2 or 3 minutes from the old EBUC venue but more isolated as its on the edge of an industrial estate.





+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Here are the directions for anyone attending via M606 / Manchester Road entrance...This is the most direct way to approach the venue.
At the end of M606, from the roundabout take the third turning onto MAYO Avenue, get into the right hand lane and stay in it.
Morrisons and Matalan are on your left, at the traffic lights turn right into Manchester Road / Bradford centre A641

Keep in right hand lane and go through 6 pedestrian crossings. Continue past Lidl supermarket on left and Station Hotel Pub.

There is a large Van Hire Company on your right and a small sign that says 'Local Access' Turn right here into Mill Lane.
Continue over the mini roundabout and under the railway bridge. Look out for the vintage car on the roof of the pub on the left

The Mill Lane Pub is on your left

Vintage car on the roof at the back of the venue, park anywhere in the area, ignore 'clamping signs' the land is owned by the pub

Dereck & myself, Rita & Ian, really enjoyed last night, its a cracking venue, just the right size,

the atmosphere was great thoughout the evening!

 

We loved the music, apart from the "Latin" spot, sorry, we just dont get it!

but we know lots of you do! its just our opinion!

The rather keen glass collector made us laugh, was he on commission or something!

 

Already looking forward to our next visit to sunny Bradford!

Great nite last night - buzzy atmosphere and brilliant music -thought Mick did an excellent spot - hardly left the dance floor whilst he was on! Wish we had discovered this place sooner - been meaning to go for ages - one thing and another kept cropping up.  We'll be back!

Time to say the usual big thanks to everyone who attended on Saturday night.
 
Another very busy night in Bradford, we must be doing something right! We havn't had to open all the fire doors before so it must have been a hot one!
 
DJs played some outstanding tracks, I love it when I don't know what the next track will be to hit the decks, some nice choices and a couple of lp only tracks which is a bonus.
 
I think all the DJs enjoyed themselves, the Duke & Duchess of TK.Maxx were slightly late arriving, however, they took to it like water and I hope they will return to do another spot in the future.
 
Some top tunes played by everyone so mega thanks from me.
 
I also must mention the amount of people offering to help out since ive been under the weather was overwhelming, you are an amazing bunch of soul fans. Thanks for the helping out on the door Sue & Debs, I appreciated it very much.
 
Were back again on June 8th with more new guest DJs for your entertainment, here's to another 7 years of Bradford Soul....
 
I'll post some plays later
 
cheers Paul
