Gonna be a fabulous curtain raiser to the New Year. The Hollingwood is creating a buzz, why not be part of the adventure.

can't wait have flagged 200 records up so will whittle it down and possibly play a totally different set, so honoured to be allowed behind the hollingwood decks. A smart venue with a policy that positively encourages something different not the overplayed 500. Nerves have started, but so looking forward to it

Happy New Year to you !

Now the 'special events' are over back to the regular events!! 

Hollingwood: starting 2014 as we ended 2013 - lesser played and something different to tickle your fancy!

Hope to see you on Saturday along with Chris, Mark Mellors, Martyn Ward and Kev Smedley doing the honours behind the decks

S43 2LG - Stick it in yer sat-nav.

 

 

No egos, just great soul music from the finest DJ's.

 

You could go somewhere else, but it wont be half as good.

 

You knows it makes sense.

For me a great way to start the New Year, playing a few tunes at Hollingwood for a crowd of lovely people, does it get any better.

 

First time out since before Christmas so I'm looking forward to Sat. night.

Thank you to everyone who made last night such a good one - someone said to me that the difference about Hollingwood compared to other places is that the majority of people dance. That says a lot to me in that it proves that people come because of the music and the standard and quality has never failed in the year we have been running. We know that those who don't dance still thoroughly enjoy themselves due to the music and the overall vibe of this iconic venue. Last night was another good night - thank you for your support x

After a pretty low key 2013, 2014 is going to be spent exploring those little gems of soul nights dotted about the country. First up Hollingwood at Chesterfield. Not a huge turn out due to the time of year but the quality of music on offer was refreshing and different. If you want to go somewhere, that offers quality over quantity you wont go far wrong. Thanks to Chris Cooper and Terry Westhead for granting me the privilege to shoot a few images x

Just about recovered, great night, great music, could do with a few more in but non the less still worth every moment for the music, memories and a great bunch of people. Bonus this month was having Martyn Johnson taking some shots. Very atmospheric. Well done Mark Mellors, Martyn Ward and Kev Smedley, take a bow all three of you.

do it all again in Feb with John Vincent.

Last night was absolutely the DB's; It was a night that showcased the best of northern Soul; not only in the music but by the friendly band of Hollingwood devotees who just love Northern get into the zone and dance their hearts out, and massive thanks to Chris, Sharon & Terry for their visionary and magnificent music policy.

 

Hollingwood is one of the true gems of the northern scene, an absolute privilege last night to play some of the wonderful heady sounds that got us into Northern and still make the hair on my neck stand up.

 

Quality night not sure there is much around to touch it if you don't want to listen to the same old, and want a night in the company of some of the most up for it soulies we've ever had the pleasure to meet.

 

Martyn your pictures are sheer class mate, you've made me look human

 

Thanks everyone

 

Martyn & Chris xx
