RAFA CLUB Details

event-14968-0-00777700-1383832362_thumb.MICK H is the main guest DJ for the November outing at the Rafa Club for the Serious Shades of Soul club....

This will be a full undiluted night of mega rare dance soul as requested by many of the regulars.

7.30 'till 12.30am gives you 5 hours of soul time for £3.00 on the door and a free cd of records played on the night.

Local guest DJ's will be Nev Griffiths from Darlington and as usual Paul Ackley, all dj's will ensure a good mixture of quality soul music throughout the night - 60's, 70's dancers, Northern, Modern, Funky edged monsters and as usual something completely different from your usual Northern Soul Night.

Whoever penned that second line ,if it was you Paul ,well put ... It really does say it all !

 Mick H in the N.east is a bonus ,but in the right club is brilliant :)

 

  Once had the pleasure of hearing him at the Greatstone in Manchester ,playing things he has ,but does'nt get much chance to play out in big room venues ... amazing !

Another top night of quality rare Northern Soul :

Fantastic to see visitors from Doncaster, Scunthorpe, Nottingham: Guest dj's Mick H and Nev Griffiths were on top form delivering some mouth watering soul, and in Nev's words " 60's, 70's dancers, Northern, Modern, Funky edged monsters". Good to see some young 'Uns in too. The Mcgannon brothers were home from their Afghan duties (we'll have them on at the Rafa in the new year as the young blood is what we need to keep things alive and kicking) both guys new on the collecting scene but Mike (Dad) has brought them up good and proper by brain washing the Northern Noise into them.....

Mick and Nev will post their playlists and same for Paul Ackley our resident rare soul aficionado.

It was great to hear from Mick H that the Rafa club is one of the best soul nights he's been to in the last year or so and loved the dj'ing chores cos' he just played what he wanted to an appreciative crowd.

Thanks to everyone who keeps turning up month after month - without you we would not have a solul club, cheers folks.

Regards Paul.

Echo the words up above ... but must say ,to have people travelling from far and wide is a credit to the quality on offer in this little club ,a little club that is firmly on the map and no longer a secret hiding place for true soul fans !

 

 The balance between mid tempo and uptempo is key ,because the fan base is wide and it's always about trying to please everyone on the night .

 

  Regardless of people's perceptions of so called ,"big name dj's" ,Mick H is up there with the best ,but is as enthusiastic as anyone i know and humble with it .. no ego ,no brag .. infact ,it was that kind of night ,just good craic and no politics ... a great atmosphere from start to finish .

 It all went too fast and it was a real shame to have to say goodbye for another month :(

 

 Good to see my friends from Yorkshire ,Dale ,Andy and Dee ..and a nice surprise to see Neil from Donny walk in ,but a real honour to have Rob Thomas and his good lady travel such a long distance to be with us :)

 

Playlists will be in the right place in due course ,until then ..keep it real .. 

LASTLY ,if you have'nt already sampled the SERIOUS SHADES OF SOUL ..put a note in your diary ,first SATURDAY of every month and see for yourself ;)

my first visit to this little club,i must say what a awesome night from start to finish,got to be one of the best rare soul nights i have been to for some years

quality tunage from all the djs ,new and old faces ,but the shock of the night was to see my old buddy Rob Thomas & kate in attendance

that says enough about a soul night when you get Rob to travel from Louth,was great to see you Rob,

well done guys keep up the good work credit to you for having such a great little upfront night in the north east

 

best

Mick H
