Here we go again, the count down to Novembers hollingwood begins...  a cracking night of quality sounds is on offer and a warm up man who can dance as good as he can play a set.

 

Dancing lessons not on offer at Hollingwood........ just top sounds, brilliant friendly crowd with an ear for quality northern and a right proper venue.

 

We just love it 

 

Dare to be different

Might not bother playing this Month, just sit back and be totally entertained by Chris and our guests. Tommo did a fantastic job last time so looking forward to Part II.  Top billing this Month is Cressy, a DJ with massive credentials _ Oh Matron !! Got a massive list of requests for Cressy so fingers crossed.

Right Cressy - Firstly, The Sheppards, second ......

am getting excited as I attend this venue even when im not invited to do a set, why? because I rate this place its one of the very few venues where you get to hear stuff you've not heard in years, its great hearing all those classics week in week out and I love em,but I also still have the same passion for records I grew up with that have been over looked as the main stream stick to what is now being called safe tunes !!! ktf tommo.

Be fabulous to see you Susan and Pete, seems an age since we last saw each other.

Tommo was awesome last time he graced our little club with his little box of Magic. Cressy, well, can't say enough. A collection to die for, a gentleman and as knowledgable about his 'profession' as anyone. Love his music selection and never fails to disappoint ! No pressure then ?

See you at The Hollingwood Saturday. More oldies than Nottingham Forests Trophy Cabinet ! ( Soz Chris )

Now now Tez! Don't kick a man when he's already hurting (following yesterday's result!!!) We were treated to a memorable night of some special music last month and I'm sure next Saturday will bring more of the same. Sharon X

Thank you Mick for those kind words.  I would agree wholeheartedly but I am a tad biased.

We try to do what we can to be honest and adhere to our principles. It is all worth while when we get comments like that back from our guests.

See you again Saturday and hopefully we can keep it going.  With Tommo kicking us off, myself Chris and Cressy it can only be another terrific night of sumptuous Soul.

See you all there.

Not read it in a book, there when they played it. 

Hollingwood is a freindly little Soul Club with a massive Heart. Come and feel it yourself this Saturday.

Nearly here ! Doesn't time fly ! The only good thing about that is that some soul nights seem to come around quicker and when you look forward to them then that can only be a good thing can't it? Well, for me Hollingwood is one of those soul nights (it joins with just a few more in my ''looking forward to' list) where something other than the regular 'top 20' are played. Anyway, each to their own - but if you fall into the category of wanting to go home feeling well and truly 'souled out' then we will see you on Saturday! If not, enjoy your night wherever you go x

Well must say one has not ventured to the Hollingwood and as the colourful  learned mr Westhead so eloquently paints the upcoming visage " i have meandered to the ends of the drive, and espied in the not to distant future, that the night of the Hollingwood appears before me" so well portrayed and coloquial Mr Westhead ! It also seems this gent has delved onto the nighter scene, was the last one at Keele ?

Mr Bucc,

Obviously a gentleman with a descerning taste.  It would be an absolute pleasure to have your company at our little soiree. Pray, do have in attendance you beautiful and delightful wife. I do understand that the finest beverage 'Guiness' is available along with it a selection of toons from the days of our youth.

Last one - Bolton last Saturday but Keele is a fond memory !!

Had a fabulous night. a few things happening yesterday and quite a few 'regulars' away at Soul in The Sun' but still a good crowd. Quite a few new faces in which is always now to see. Tommo opened up and had quite a few scratching their heads and raiding the memory banks. I moved it along until the antiisipated appearance of Cressy - Sublime !! What a collection this guy has and true to our ethos played a set of lesser played toons etc. thanks for The Sheppards and Montclaires by the way mate XX

Chris finished us off and all in all it was a great night. Relaxed, friendly and quality music. It's not about the Chin Strokwrs just a night of great friends and great music. Thanks to all who attended, big up for Tommo and Cressy. See you next month when our special guest will be the infectious Mr Martin Stanford XX

It was a really good night I agree, made all the better by having discerning soul people attending. It's lovely to hear at the end of the night that people have appreciated the music and have enjoyed their night because that's what the ethos of Hollingwood is to be honest, as simple as that! We do really appreciate those who attend because there are so many venues now to chose from and it makes it even more special when we know that some go out of their way to travel to the Hollingwood from far and wide! Next month is a special one for us Coopers as the 'Chief' (as our lads call him!) turns 60 and it would be even more special if people join us on the 7th December to help us celebrate!! Martin Stanford is our guest DJ so it will be well worth a visit. Sharon X

It was a bit of an "in transit" visit for us as we had a busy evening ahead ... hollingwood is a great venue and some great music played during our shorter than normal stay ..
