Event Reviews and Talk

Welcome to the Hollingwood Hotel Event Review Section


There are no reviews to display.



Welcome to the Hollingwood Hotel Comments sectiom

This event is now over. Look up now to read the latest reviews of this soul event

Whoa hold on, slight mis quote above ! 

I have decided to quit as resident DJ / Promoter of Hollingwood Hotel Soul Nights from the Aug event. I havn't quit from DJing altogether ! I'll still be up for guest spots as & when i'm asked / available. [ Just had 5 new 45s arrive this week & 2 more on way !!! ]

I decided Hollingwood was getting too much after a change of Management, a cock up with the dates / diary  for July caused us problems with flyering & promoting the July event ! Egg on face or what ! On / Off - Sat / Fri / no date etc .....................

That following having to put long hours in on Sat night, music policy / support discussions & financial considerations made me look at it & i decided to call it a day at Hollingwood & hand it over to Chris [ & now Terry ] But i intend to still be available for guest DJ spots at various venues when asked.

I wish Chris & Terry all the best & we will still be turning up & supporting them now & then, as its a great old, venue trying to play some great & different tunes !

I am sure that we will uphold the ethos behind The Hollingwood's new lease of life and continue in the spirit with which Chris and Mort revived this Iconic venue.  Looking forward to being part of The Hollingwoods history.

Mort has always been a top promoter, who can forget the fabulous YMCA in Chesterfield, and will be welcome back at any time. I will try to keep up the good work that has gone before.

Understand your feelings Mort, same happened to me at The Phoenix but onwards and upwards. Good luck with your future endeavours and see you on the 3rd.

Thank you to Chris for inviting me on board.

Local legend of a Venue.  If you've not been yet then I suggest you give it a try this time around. Changing the Room layout a tad to open up the Dancefloor a little more. Some quality Music to be played so no excuse. Hope to see you there.

Looking forward to a great night of music from Mort and our Guest/new promoter Terry Westhead,  Bit like dog muck is Terry, all over the place, lol, popular dj with some top tunes.  Saying Good bye to Mort tonight, who as been great over the last few months, all the best for the future. Terry takes on the co-promoter role with me from September. So we move onward and upward.

Playing tunes from back in the day, Classic, some rare, underplayed with Cleethorpes, the Mecca etc all thrown in for good measure and a load of stuff you no longer hear.

 

Come on down, you know it makes sense

The Dog Muck thing has been mentioned before Chris !!!

As I said previously, The Hollingwood holds special memories for a lot of the Local Soul goers and it will be an honour to be part off it.  Before that I am mearly the Guest so need to concentrate on getting those feet on the floor and dancing to some of the Good Stuff.  60's and early 70's is my bag so hopefully it is yours too. Bring a friend and make some new friends at The Hollingwood

See you all there XXX

Bag packed and ready for the long but fruitful journey this coming Saturday to The Hollingwood Hotel ( my Sat Nav is buggered )

One of my favourite local venues and a must for every first Saturday.  Lovely, friendly and welcoming place where everyone is your friend and the music is the way we remember it.  Come on down, have a dance, meet some old friends and a few new ones, buy me a drink and listen to the sounds of our youth.

Really sorry to have missed last night -obviously our families sad and emotional event took precedence but from the first comment coming through to us from Terry it sounds as if the night was a good one. Looking forward more than ever now for next month - September 7th with Martin Smith from Sheffield's Inner Soul as guest DJ with Chris and Terry Westhead as his new Co Promoter

Tried to do what we said we would do and I think we succeeded. With the new layout, more Dancefloor, darker and more old school. Can only see this going upwards. Missed this one ? Sept 7th is the next page in the History of The Hollingwood Hotel. Get yourselves down and be part of it !

Glad things worked well last night. Thank you to everyone for your comments, messages and texts re Dad. He passed away at 5.30 yesterday afternoon. Slight panic about setting up, getting there, messaging and trying to sort things. A massive thank you to Terry for all his help yesterday, immense and so grateful for him being there for me. Big thanks to Steve for

stepping in and bringing some tunes, just in case.

Finally a big thans to Mort, we got the old place going again, thanks for the support, all promoters know its not easy, takes commitment and hard work.

Lets hope the old place will prove to us that it was all worth it and that you played your part.

Chris
