First time behind the decks for Tommo at Hollingwood - I'm looking forward to hearing some tunes we may have not heard for a while! Definitely won't be the 'run of the mill' from any of these guys .

Tommy brings not only an unbridled love of the music but the enthusiasm of a kid in a sweet shop.  He lives for the music and in every record he plays.  Tommo is infectious, in a nice way, so get yourselves in early and take a deep breath of Soul. Myself, Chris and Martin will keep it moving with a selection of memories to hopefully keep you movin' and a groovin'. 

The new layout was a screaming success last month so come along and see what all the fuss is about, you are all more than welcome XXX

Only a few weeks to go so make sure your plans include The Hollingwood Hotel.  We will be joined by Tommo and Martin Smith so you know you are in for a treat. Martin is an old friend who runs The Inner Soul Club in Sheffield and has a long affiliation with Northern Soul. He can say he was there and has the tunes to back it up.  Come along, close your eyes and be 18 again ( but keep them open while you're dancing !! )

A few changes for the better much appreciated last month so join us and help build the future at The Hollingwood Hotel

Hi Martin and Chris

Be great to see you again. it's been ages since we last spoke !!!!!!!!

Martin is a top guy with top tune and a CV to back it up. Chris is older than time itself. Being only a slip of a lad myself I will feel a little intimidated by these old boys but I will give it my best shot.

I'm sure we will hear a few old Sam's and Cleethorpes tunes, just what the Doctor ordered. See you there mate.

A couple of folk have asked about The Hollingwood HOTEL.  Unfortunately it is no longer a Hotel and does not have rooms available although the First Saturday of every Month it has a bloody good Northern Soul Night upstairs !!

Now then young Tez!! Chris may be notching up the years but he's still in fine fettle!! especially when it comes to putting together a decent spot of tunage! and as for Martin Smith, well, those of us that have had the pleasure of hearing him DJ can vouch for the fact that he has some special stuff and I cant wait to hear it again. As for you young man, well I've heard that you`re not so bad yourself for a youngster! Tommo to start it off as well....no more to say except - it looks like we should be in for a good night.

By the way - if folks are looking for a hotel - The Ibis in chesterfield is only a short taxi ride away.

Really looking forward to this one. We've got really fond memories of the old Hollingwood and have enjoyed every night that we have been to this time round.

Always a place to hear top quality sounds and might even dig out a few Hollingwood classics that I remember from the old days.

See you all on Saturday

Martin

Hi Terry, Me & D will be calling in for this one, before we head over to the nighter.

 

Be interesting to hear what Tommo plays & whats played as regards (forgotten oldies),

 

A lot of northern played in Cheshire, north west, was very different to the northern played in the midlands in the 70s,

 

Having said that i love it all & you know the sounds i like Terry.

 

see you Saturday.

Looking forward to the surprises Mick! The future is most certainly bright with the standard of music played over the last 8 months and the class of DJs up and coming - we couldn't expect anything less! See you Saturday x

Hope we can entertain you both, I'm sure you'll love it

The weekend is just around the corner, I've been and had a quick look and its definitely there !

There are a shed load of things going on this weekend but amazingly only one place to be and that is The Hollingwood Hotel.  Can't promise you Heaven but we will try to get as close to it as we can. A couple of Angels on the Decks and a little Devil too - you decide !!

Not as a selling point but it is a Talc friendly venue ( but please have a little respect for those that don't ). Music we all know and love with a few    "I'm sure I know". Tommo, Chris and myself, along with Martin Smith of Inner Soul fame, will be serving up a host of goodies for you so please, come along and feast yourselves at our Table. Northern Soul is on the Menu - Starters, Main Course and Sweet. Table for 4 Sir ?

Ain't been up for a couple of months due to holidays but looking forward to Saturday, I'll be there nice and early to see my old mate Tommo do his stuff on the decks. And as some of you are aware from a video posted on Facebook, I've been practicing my dancing skills so beware..lol

 

See you Saturday

I've seen it - what with Chris dancing in his socks and Steve dancing in his slippers - it seems its all about comfort rather than style now we're all getting older!!!

Ive seen that video, be afraid be very afraid lol. Anyway, tunes we have know loved and forgotten Thats the Hollingwood way, playing the Classics, rare, underplayed, so be ready for stuff from across the N Soul world of the last few decades.

Oh that little I'll pretend I don't buy records ploy.................

 

Doesn't wash with me Mr C I have your measure and that Tezza's too before he starts, and I know what Mr Smith and Mr Ward are like in pursuit of vinyl.  None of you can resist its an addiction. xxx

Another busy weekend. Wherever you may wander have a great night but you wouldn't go too far wrong coming along to The Hollongwood Hotel. Not a night of Rare Soul, not a night of 100mph stompers just a night of the music we enjoyed 'when we was kids' and a away from the norm

Come on down, you will not be disappointed.

Not long to go now.

Over 140 years (ouch!) of northern soul experience behind those decks tonight so top quality sounds are guaranteed from start to finish.

If you know your stuff and like to wear out the dance floor then you won't go away disappointed tonight.

Sharon, Chris & Terry - this night was always going to be something special and its didn't let us down.

The music played all night was awesome Martin & Tommos's spots were exceptional (as of course were chris & tezza's) some records played made the hair stand up on the back of my neck so strong were the memories of those halycon days when we were first into Northern soul; the buzz the excitement and most of all love of the music.

Thanks for having the balls to have a policy which allows those memories to flood back and records collections which allow it although how you do it without buying records I don't know!!!; you can go anywhere for the top 500 NS classic stompers - there are only a handful of venues that satisfy two old farts like us musically as you do. ( Eggborough, Drax & mr Smith's Inner Soul have the same vibe).

Its a real top place, really friendly people and the music blows you away, we love it.

Finally was a great privilege to see Mort and watch him dancing too.

Hollingwood this is northern soul as we remember it.

Thank you all - we will be back

Chris & Martyn xxx

Sorry it turned into an essay!

It was an absolute pleasure to have you with us last night Tommo. Nothing but good vibes about both yourself an Martin Smith. We are trying to create an evening where the emphasis is solely on the Music. Moved stuff around again to maximise space and help build on the atmosphere and I believe we pulled it off - when I say we I mean Chris J Cooper ( vision dude XX )

Thanks Martyn and Chris for your continued support. For those who don't know they travel all the way over from the East Coast to our little club of Soul !!

We had a decent enough crowd in and more importantly a very receptive and appreciative group.

Looking forward already to next Month with Steve Brown as our guest ably assisted by Mark Mellors.

Blowing smoke up our own arses but we have something special going on here, come on down and be part of it.

Thanks to each and everyone who attended.

We really enjoyed it last night. A proper northern soul night run by proper northern soul people. Top sounds played all night from start to finish.

Thanks to Chris and Terry for letting me loose behind the decks.

Tezza its worth a 3 hour round trip to attend a venue such as Hollingwood; its a bit like the old days, We had no option to travel then either to hear something different & special it kind of grew into a habit of a lifetime xx

Had a really good night again at Hollingwood.  The music policy here is spot on, it's not rare northern soul we want to hear just the forgotten northern soul records of our youth and that's what you get here. If you really are fed up of  hearing the same old, same old, give Hollingwood a try you won't be disappointed. Well done to all the Djs, lovely to hear Lesley Uggams Don't You Even Care,and Jackie Trent You Baby. Great stuff.  Looking forward to next month, Tina & Phil. ps, the room layout now is just right !
