Who's DJing on this night then Chic? When I first looked I thought that was the lineup for the night, which would mean about 5 records each. Then I realised this was the DJ's for the year.

Oh yes! Definatley one to look forward too.

Let's keep that 'spirit' of discovery going like we did down at Albrighton in the late 90's. Back of the box underplayed cheapies, current monsters aswell as latest discoveries from any era........ With a Healthy dose of favourites from the 'Manor' of course!!

Last time I was at Bishops Wood I got a 2 week long chest infection trying (in vain) to push Jordi's car out of a snow bound carpark in minus 4 temperatures. Hoping for slightly better temperatures and drinks on the terrace this time!!!!

See you all there. YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE!!!

              welcome to part two of " The spirit of Albrighton"

 

 

the first part as many of you know was held at swancote in march.

it was a great success with nearly 150 through the door.

 

            the d"j"s 

                                kev healy

                   

                               len cooke

 

                              john pugh

 

                             dave welding

 

                              ted massey

 

                             carl willingham

 

                              + myself chic

 

they all played mixed spots of what they used to play at the"lea manor" albrighton

plus some of what they are playing in there spots currently.

 

the entertainment licence at swancote was revoked and lost.

so i have taken the future nights to bishops wood hall.

this in my opinion is a better venue and quite close to where 

the lea manor was.

 

               the dj"s" for saturday are;

 

 

                   chris anderton

 

                    kenny onions

 

                   gary holyman

 

                   john weston

 

                   mick h

 

                    chic

 

 

hope to see you all there again on saturday

Well if Ted, Lou & Woody are moseying down, then I expect Ken and I will be Do-Si-Do'ing on down to one of my favourite venues of recent years.

btw you lucky people, I had a sneak preview of Ken's playbox during the week - many large doses of soulful goodness & Albrighton memories.

Hi Chic

Put me down for a sales table preferably one with a leg on each corner if you don't mind.

Thanks

Well, one day to go now ... Think we're hoping a bit too much for a sunny evening so we can get out on the terrace but me thinks the music will keep you all on the dance floor anyway! :)

I'ts not that often that i get on-line these days, but it is in this case essential.

 

Chic, what a fantastic night, Sandi and i really enjoyed ourselves to the max, and i'vetaken this chance to comment during a marathon record playing session , that last night inspired that is set to run on 'til monday.

 

What can i say, well the music was what anyone with a knowlege of the Manor would expect, top drawer 60's and 70's soul, played by a great set of D.J.'s. It was great to get back to Bishops Wood, and be in the company of so many friends and soul officanado's. I had a good dance, bought some tunes and talked all sorts of stuff to the olks there, what more can you ask for, when so many venues fail to even tick one of those boxes.

 

Had to miss the first one due to family illness, but hope to be there on all future occasions.

 

Well thats it, i'm starting to ramble, thanks to Chic, the DJ's and all those who made it such a great night, and particullarly to Mr. Weston who was in sparkling for back at our house, keeping us all entranced with his antics with a bulldog, a fan and a frog, ill let you muse over that til you next see John.

 

All the best   Harpo x

YES! Another great 'spirit' night. Well, with a DJ line up like that, you couldn't fail could you.

A great balance of old manor favourites as well as current biggies. Dance floor kept busy all night and a good buzz around the bar and record area (just like the manor used to be).

Cheers to Chic for putting this quality event on for us. I know alot of effort goes into making sure we have a good night. See you at the next one. September I think.

Oh, and thanks to Mr Banks and Mr Holyman for converting my hard earned cash into vinyl again! They get me every time! 6 new additions now nestling in their crisp new white sleeves in the record room.

I just want to echo the sentiments of Paul & Neil above. Right venue, right line up, bring on the next one ( but give me 3 months to get over this one ;-)

:lol: .....Hey, we missed you guyz Saturday night, glad you had a great ‘Spirit of’ :yes:

 

We have your Gary booked to ‘come out to play’ again at our end soon - Gary, ‘The Intrigues - In  A Moment’ has provided us with so much entertainment (on so many levels) I played it in both The Main Room, and ‘The Den’……..

 

…….I have a sneaking suspicion that Dave Bentley may have been taking the p*ss out of how proud I am of my ‘New Discovery’ though…...he put a copy in the Raffle - it was the wording on the record sleeve that gave me a ‘hint’…….”A ‘Len’s Den’ Monster!” :D......on top of which, I had Dave’s fits of laughter, whilst repeatedly pointing to the record, then to me, then back again, over and over again…..Luckily I’m a ‘laid back kinda fella’, or it could have put me right off my ‘stride’ - Great stuff :D 

 

All the best,

 

Len :thumbsup:
