Welcome to the Hollingwood Hotel Comments sectiom

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

Getting to love the Hollingwood again. I think the decks have found their home and we are getting the old buzz back around the place. 

Steve Brown is someone who knows all about the music and has a Box of Delights to satisfy anyone. He has done the knowledge and this month will be parking his Black Cab of Soul at The Hollingwood.  A promoter in his own right having been at Annesley and now at North Wings he has the credentials to back it up, and a really nice guy to boot !!  This month we will be starting the evening off with a young upstart behind the decks in the guise of Mark Mellors. Mark has been collecting records for quite a few years now ( OVO ) and is primarily a Dancer so knows what gets people on the floor. Keeping with the Hollingwood ethos it will be Northern Soul form our youth and the Music we loved to Dance to back in the 60's and early to late Seventies.

Special night ? Why not come along and decide for yourself.  Others have and keep coming back so we must be doing something right !

It really is less than a week away !!

On the back of last Months successful night we have an equally auspicious selection for you.

Myself and Chris will be joined by Mark Mellors who has an every increasing collection of original vinyl quality. A dancer at heart and so knows what gets a place buzzing.  Our main event for the night is Annersley and North Wings Legend Mr Steve Brown.  Been a tad poorly bless him but is back on the road to recovery. He will be gracing out little big Soul Club with his presence and spinning a selection of tunes that will put pressure on the doors of your Memory Banks. Get down to The Hollingwood Hotel and have a night of proper Old Soul.

Not too long now ! Something different from the 'norm'expected on Saturday and I'm sure all DJs will deliver just that. Be good to catch up with our 'regulars' and those who haven't tried the Hollingwood experience before - you won't be disappointed, that's guaranteed !!

Its October at last. Pomegranete's are freely available, it's my Birthday ( this Month !! ) and The Hollingwood is host to Steve Brown.  Just need a fat bloke in a red suit and it's like Christmas is already here !!

This Saturday, like we need to tell you, the Hollingwood is the place to be.  Music from our youth and if our youth can't turn up we'll have me. Chris Mark Mellors and Steve Brown along to entertain you. So gird your loins and make your way over to sunny Chesterfield where the Sun always shines, apart from at night, and when its raining, but apart from that, ALWAYS !!!

Tez, in an official capacity I'm getting a bit concerned about your verbal diarrhoea - I think you ought to nip a sample into your GP!!! Seriously though I must say I agree with your sentiments exactly!!! See you Saturday xx

Echo Tommos thoughts completely.  Mark is biting at the bit to get behind the Decks and play some of his and our favourite Music.  Cannot say enough about Steve Brown.  Quality DJ, a box full of Magic and a lovely guy on top of all that.  Our regulars keep coming back for more and every Month we see new faces.  Come on down, bring your friends and listen to some quality Music.  Myself and Chris will keep it moving and hopefuly so will you.  A good night at The Hollingwood - Hope to see you there

Thats great Mick, really appreciate that, nice to see you again after all your jet setting around expecting a banging night of soul, Mark to kick us of, hes buzzing, think hes djing in his sleep at the mo lol. Mr Brown so good all the time but especially when the restraints are of. Always rely on his musical knowledge. So come on saturday get a move on.

That's great Mick - there's not many around who would turn down a DJ spot to support another night. First drink on us (you only drink water; right!!!?) I'm sure Kev and Marilyn will be there unless they're jet setting somewhere or else don't want to put themselves in the firing line after what happened last Saturday (and having Dutch Schteve as their new manager) lol !!!

Someone said earlier this week on another 'feedback' that when people return to a venue on a regular basis it shows that you are doing something right, when a DJ returns and not because they are on the Rosta then you are definitely doing the right thing.  Tommo wears his Heart on his sleeve and is not afraid to tell the truth.  Chris has created a little slice of heaven here in Chesterfield and I am more than chuffed to be allowed to be part of it.  Music is the most important thing and we give it the respect it deserves.

Only a day away - The Hollingwood is THE place to be this weekend.  Chris and myself will be joined by Mark Mellors and the legend that is Steve Brown.  A great night is in store, please come along and see for yourselves.

outstanding night as expected at hollingwood,my shirt was proof of that wringing wet by the end of the night,mark mellors,steve brown,tezza and chris you were all gr8,heard so many favs that other venues are scared to play,beats me why? these songs were all time tested oldies from back in the day,so refreshing to go somewhere where you can enjoy this stuff again,nice to see dave and jo from stockport make the journey down tonite,must mention tezza spun heartaches and souveniers ... wow blew me away,and the last record of the nite everyone clapping in unison to the beat was like a mini wigan. Pencil this in youre diary if you wanna hear that stuff you danced to back in  the day and as been neglected for a handful of safety records,dont moan about venues playing the same old same old,get yourself here you wont be disappointed ... ktf tommo.

Interesting night, first time for me, liked the venue, friendly people great, floor. Definitely not a "safety" night. All DJ's created diverse playlists there was stuff in there I had to keep going up and ask what was being played, Toni Michaels, wow, Trade Martin, thought Tezza's Sam Dees topped a brilliant set. Went away looking forwards to the next one!. Thanks to Sharon, Chris and Tezza for all their hard work in bringing back the Hollingwood promoting is a difficult job with much going on behind the scenes as well as a huge amount in time being given up. Abt and ktf.

Thanks for the kind words - Must be a 'Mick' thing.

Had a blast last night and great to hear some different stuff.  Mark and Steve, our guests dug deep into their respective boxes of treasures and produced some Magic.  Top night and already looking forward to the next one.  Wasn't rammed but plenty in and to the bitter end, tells you that they are enjoying it !!

See you guys 1st Saturday in November with Cressy at the helm.

Thank you all for attending - we love you for it guys XXX

Oh what a night, absolutely amazing sounds that were giants in their day that we love and one or two we had forgotten..... Hollingwood never fails to please, drove back to Cleethorpes smiling with a surge of memories of our youth, especially the pier... remembered old mates - some sadly long gone. Trousers stuck to me legs when we got home was so wet - from dancing before any of you put a rude comment!!! Hollingwood we salute you, each and every one Sharon, Chris, Tezza & Jo, guest DJ's and the dancers who are so up for something that little bit different... we love it, Northern soul at it's best, its why we got into the scene and stayed for the long haul. Sheer Brilliance can't wait for next months fix Thanks again KOKO.

 

Martyn & Chris with wet pants !! (and buggered knees but had a blast so what the hell) xxxxxxx

You guys XX

The thoughts of you in your wet pants may have put me off my Dinner !!

It is great to get such feedback and although it is Chris's and my event I can honestly say that I loved it. Some great sounds and as you say bringing back the memories of our youth. Each record bringing back Samantha's, The Pier, Wakefield, Notts Palais etc and our friends new, old and long gone. No airs and graces just great music.

Hopefully see you next Month.

Martyn and Chris, all the way from Cleethorpes and Dave and Jo from Stockport - Thanks guys for putting in the miles, we are humbled by you presence XXX

wet shits Chris??? never mentioned that!!!!!

 

Can honestly say; speaking as a traveller of sorts if it wasn't so bloody good we wouldn't make the trip - much as we like you all.

 

Back in the day (sound like the part time pensioner Chris is..) we always travelled to a venue whether it be the Pier/gardens/Casino/Wakefield etc.etc. or Sams although in truth Sams was at the time a bus trip only and we could have walked... It never bothered us to travel then to hear the sounds we needed to hear, so it's what we do I suppose.if we can't get our soul fix nearer home - although its a lot comfier in a car than trying to get half fare on the bus......(really showing age now)

 

See you soon 

Martyn &Chris xxxxx

Don't forget the wet ankles Chris!! Really really glad you enjoyed it after travelling and supporting us! And thanks for that beautiful pork pie!! Proper Sunday tea like my Grandma used to make (just need the Victoria sponge and salmon sandwiches now!! On second thoughts perhaps we'll just stick with the Pork Pie after all!!) See you both around somewhere soon Xxxx

Right, right and oh yes - ABSOLUTELY !!

A room full of Soul from beginning to end.  Hollingwood is getting a nice reputation for playing the music.  Mark and Steve did us proud and Nr Cooper played some blinding stuff.  I myself kept it going until we had to chuck everyone out - haven't these people got homes to go to ?

November 2nd and we do it all over again with Cressy. Come along and check us out - You can take a few memories with you on your journey home XXX
