As Guy himself might say 'this is going to be brilliant boys and girls'.  Very much looking forward to an evening of indulgence in quality soul, fantastic company, and perhaps and some shenanigans ;-)

Well the 5th Anniversary went quite well didn't it!!!!   :yes:

 

Great mix of sounds from the all the deejays, from different genres, which kept me interested.

 

As I was mainly in a "Northern" type of mood last night, Phil's spot kept me on the dance-floor the most with his quality 60's oldies so thank you Mr Shields.  Pat had me dancing to 70's & at one point the Groovy Gang were on the floor singing a certain song to each other (we must have looked nutters lol) but for the life of me I can't remember which song it was!!!  Guy played a fantastic spot as did Funky Dave (I'm not really clued up on Funk, but it sounded good & deep) 

 

Was lovely to see Olof after all this time, and really nice to meet Jo (please send my regards to BD if you ever bump into him back home)

 

Gareth - it's always a pleasure, but I still think Corrie is far too good for you  :lol:

 

Lou!! really nice chatting to you and I look forward to more chin-wags the next time you are in Leeds.

 

Well done Driving Beat on your 5th Anniversary .... here's to the next 5 years!!!!  :thumbup:

 

Much Love

Alison.......Whatever do you mean Corrie is oo good for me

I am like fine wine, or a decent malt, only to improve with age

She thinks I am a Welsh George Cloony.

 

Also She say Hello, and how nice it was to meet you

she will come up again to Driving Beat, As I will be.

 

The Music was class, we had a great time.

So fantastic hearing Guy Hennegan playing again

I had not heard him spin since the 90s and he was fantastic

Really intresting selection of under the radar 45s

 

The set Pat Bleasdale did was total knock out for me !!

That lady has some taste and records. Impressed ? ......... You betcha !

 

All the other Djs were brill, And I think we will be making the effort to get to the next one

 

Was it really a year since I was in Leeds last

 

Well done to everyone, and a great crowd

 

Enjoyed V much

A genuine heart felt thank you to everyone who attended on Saturday night.

It's nights like that why I keep on with this little event. Genuinely think it adds something to the soul calendar and the atmosphere was back to its best.

I loved each and ever Dj spot. I think every jock thrived on the freedom they get behind our decks and delivered the goods with their own stamp and style on it.

Massive thanks to rich too, he was on top form and played two great spots, nice to double deck a bit at the end too.

The venue really seems to be doing the business for you lovely punters and after our third event there now, the feedback is still very positive about it do hopefully the management will allow us to stay there for some time.

To everyone who travelled plenty of miles, to everyone who made an effort to call in before going to lifeline, and to all the regulars who it's always a pleasure to see, thank you for making the 5th anniversary a special one. Oh and thanks to my folks and wife michelke for helping me out with the door and sound gear at last minute.

IMPORTANT NOTICE - Due to the December dates, and a little annual event known as Christmas, there won't be a That Driving Beat gig in December, it's just too close to chrimbo!!

Until then, Stay healthy

Azza
