Hello All

 

Not long now to another cracking night of Northern at "Ritz". With Ginger at the helm and three guest DJ's there should be plenty of dance floor action.  As Pete said earlier, this is and remains one of the top venues in the country and it is a great feeling to do a spot there.

 

All roads lead to Brighouse on Friday.

 

See you all there then.

Have a great night on Friday - you will !

 

Probably the best dance floor in the UK - and I'm making the trek from Somerset for the one after this - can't wait.

Hello All

 

What a fantastic night at "Ritz".  Lengthy queue before 8.30 which is always a good sign and then they kept pouring in, 350 altogether. The Atmosphere was electric and all the guests played to their strengths, Ginger played some unissued Motown and some top end stuff in his final set which the crowd loved and kept the floor rammed all night.

 

I do hope that this is the way it is going to be at Brighouse every month, like the early Ginger/late Tony Banks days. Full house every month in this iconic venue that was built for Northern Soul with the Country's Top DJ in charge.

 

Make the third Friday of the month a firm date in your calendar at Brighouse and get it rocking again.

 

See you all there then.

It was a super night at the Ritz !  .. people there who had not been for two years or more ..  they came to hear Northern soul as Brighouse can deliver  .. I for one , and indeed so many , belive its time Brighouse turned the clock back .. northern all the way , get rid of the handbag stuff , they will drift away as the true soul people and music will return to the days not so long ago where if you were at the back of the cue yer did not get in .. not a handbag in sight then ! .. i hope I reflected that in my half hour sets .. as indeed I know Ian was pushing that way too ..   the comments on the floor later in the night from so many people showed that this wish  should be granted ,  and the northern star that is Brighouse Ritz shines again !

One of the best nights out recently - Great music / People -  ",) - Well worth the trip over the border .

Bit like the airport on entry - Qs & High security ?  

 

HOT  - Out on the floor - May have to swap the flannel for beach towel -  could have held a "Wet t Shirt

contest,end of the evening but would have taken so very long to judge - Given the large number of entrants ",)

 

Little evidence of any "Ballroom " dancing and I never tripped over a handbag - TOP DO !

 

I always know when its been a  great night - Aching bones and a little longer to wake up - Or maybe thats just my age .

 

Well done G T  - " If carsleberg did Northern Soul nights ..................

Well, what more can can I say that hasn't already been said?! OR.......'what more do you want' that you couldn't get from Friday night's Ritz......thanks GT, Ian, Casper & Nige!! Excellent night from the moment we queued up (which was a 1st, Graeme's reminding me, as I was SO looking forward to be back that I was ready on time!lol) till the time we dragged our weary feet home! Looking forward to more of the same when we head back over the Pennines. Thanks to all for a great night ;-)) x KTF x K&G

Back on the scene after 30 years and for the last 12 months the Ritz has been kind to an newbie/oldie.  

 

I have to say I was becoming disappointed over the summer, handbags, 70's soul-disco and the music was just getting too loud.  In July even the speakers couldn't handle the volume and I had to go out for relief.  This could have been our last visit together as the wife (rock chick) did not want exploded ear drums, so I was relieved someone had turned the amp down.  

 

Guest sets from IanG & Casper saved the day and my feet still ache.  Oh why did I let myself drift away when Wigan closed?  

 

Are the Sunday sessions returning so I can get an extra practice????

It may be that absence makes your "anticipation" stronger for a good night ...and it was evident that this was the case by the bucketload on Friday at the Ritz! The floor was better than I remembered....didn't realise till Friday how much I'd missed it. The music was how I recall it used to be like years ago, with guest DJs playing sets from their boxes for the people on the floor who were there to dance. All DJs played enough variety to please the majority of dancers from the quite underplayed (Thanks Casper) to mainstream, crossover & classics. Shorter and more frequent DJ sets seems to keep the floor full for longer and the atmosphere buzzing. All in all what a cracking night - Brighouse is back on the Northern calendar ..

Cheers, see you soon

I'm hoping this is the right thread for this Friday's Brighouse Ritz spectacular ?

 

Friday 20th Sept ; GT and Alan tell me this is the Wigan tribute event so I'm really looking forward to playing some appropriate tunes.

 

If anyone has any special requests, or failed requests from last time [ that I promised to bring with me next time, that of course I've since forgotten about ] , then let me know, on here or pm me, and I'll drag them up t'north from Somerset.

 

see y'all Friday
