Peterborough - Caliente - 5th Anniversary Details

*** 5th Anniversary ***

Fri 4th April 2014 - CALIENTE (Peterborough) - Free entry

The next Soul night at “Club Caliente” in Peterborough will be on Friday 4th April 2014. It’s our 5th Anniversary here at 'Caliente' and our second night of 2014. We are pleased to offer this night as a FREE entry so if you are reading this then do come along and check it out - what have you got to loose!? This time we have DJ’s CARL FORTNUM, STEVE JAY and MICK BEEBY - who is now by increasing popular demand playing some quality tunes later on as the night unfolds. Russ and I will kick the night off to warm things up, starting with a few new purchases/trades before we hand over and will split the guys up by slipping in a few tunes later as well. Music policy: - we will all be playing a quality mix of Northern Soul from the 60’s through the 70’s/80’s and beyond, 6ts Soul + R&B etc. — these will all be QUALITY tunes from original vinyl with some Caliente favourite tunes here and there to keep with the Anniversary theme of the night. The evening runs from 8pm to 1am — but doors open from about 7.00pm for any thirsty/hungry early birds wanting bar/food or to reserve a table/sofa. Music is from about 7.30 once I’ve got the turntables up and running and done a sound check. An excellent In-house sound system adds to the sound quality and atmosphere of the venue. For further details see the attached flyer, email back or call Russ on 0796 843 7250.

Previous nights at Caliente:

7th February was our first one of 2014 and we were pleased to be able due to the continuing support with good numbers through the door to continue keeping it a FREE entry Soul night.This time we had DJ’s CARL FORTNUM, STEVE JAY and MICK BEEBY - who again by popular demand, played some more quality tunes later on as the night unfolded. Russ and I once again kicked the night off to warm things up, starting with a few new purchases/trades before we handed over to Carl, Steve and Mick. Missing a few regulars this time round but glad to see several new faces and a few old faces calling in that we havent seen for a while which was a nice suprise. Overall a very good turnout and a very enjoyable night was had by all.

Early December 2013 was our Christmas knees up helping those attending to get the Christmas part season underway. DJ’s on the night were Mick Beeby, Carl Fortnum and Steve Jay with Russ and I kicking things off with some new buys and trades as well as playing a few tunes later in the night. The new in-house sound system provided another step up (in what was already a decent sound) taking it to higher level of sound quality. All saving us the humping about of speakers and messing about with cables and stands — we just need the turntables and mixer now. A great mix of quality records played all night, a good attendance plus a great atmosphere made it a decent night with fair few staying right to the last record and lights on to finish off a very successful 2013.

Back in October 2013 we moved the decks down to the other end of the room whilst the venue refurb was getting underway. This initially caught out a few regulars but with what seems more dance floor, was well received from those in attendance. Great to see our loyal band of regulars as well as some very welcome returners and a few new faces! A couple of 50 count record boxes being passed round at the bar saw a few pounds exchanging hands leading to some interesting conversation from the anoraks! Mick Beeby played a blinder - even getting a text or two appreciation at the end of night whilst he helped us pack up. Once again great tunes all quality from both Steve Jay and Carl Fortnum - we are very privileged to have two great DJ/Collector/Jolly nice blokes here at Caliente. Russ and I filled in the gaps between Carl, Steve and Mick by double decking and turning a few heads with some 70's/Crossover (we are normally hard 60's but influences from

Steve Jay in particular rubbing off on us!). A very enjoyable night was had by all - I always go by the good number still there at the last record and lights on to say that. Here is a link to this night:

Back in August for those not away on holiday we helped Birthday boy KEV DRAPER with his annual knees up birthday bash. Kev Draper was our main guest (obviously) and we helped him celebrate his birthday in style. Kev was joined behind the decks by STEVE JAY (no Carl this time as he was on holiday) and MICK BEEBY alongside Russ and I.

The July night at Caliente was a birthday night for Russ & I celebrating before the big five'O hits us both next year! Our special guest was ROB GRAY who played a blinder - best 6ts Northern spot I've heard for a long time. We were also entertained by STEVE JAY and CARL FORTNUM as well ‘Mr early doors’ MICK BEEBY who played some crackers having dug out a few lesser played 45's. [see link for review/feedback]

Back in May we had our 4TH ANNIVERSARY which was celebrated in style with a good turn out and some great music from our resident DJ’s CARL FORTNUM and STEVE JAY plus we had the welcome return of JOHN ALDRIDGE who once again pulled out some superb 6ts Soul including several very rare 45's. Good to see MICK BEEBY take up our request to play some tunes later on in the night rather than holding on to his early doors slot. Plenty of action on the dance floor, several anoraks hogging round the turntables (one advantage having the decks out in front) and a good number as always staying to the very last record. [see link for review/feedback]

Prior to May Caliente was in March with (a fully fit and recovered) CARL FORTNUM and fellow resident STEVE JAY who delivered the quality sounds from 60s/70s/80s and beyond that the regulars now expect from our nights at Caliente. We enjoyed BRETT SMITH so much last time round (stepping in for Carl) that we asked him back to be our main guest, we were not disappointed with the selections played by Brett. We feel proud to be doing our bit to help these younger guys give us their take on what needs playing out these days. MICK BEEBY covered the early doors session again playing some very nice 45’s prompting several of the regular early birds to ask if Mick can play a few of these tunes later on in the night? We agree, so this will happen on our May date. [see link below for photos]

For our Christmas Knees up we welcomed special guest for the night HAMMIE who pulled out some big ticket 45's as well as some cracking lesser knowns which kept the dance floor busy and encouraged a couple of us anoraks to have a look over the decks to see what was playing - one of the advantages of having the turntables out front in full view of the dancers and those propping up the bar. Unfortunately CARL FORTNUM was suffering from Man Flu (A47 strain - particularly nasty!) so in stepped (a not so young any more) BRETT SMITH with STEVE JAY being a great sport leaving his box(es) open for Brett to play a great set from. [see link below for photos]

Prior (to our December knees up) the last Caliente was in October with Russ, Carl, Steve and myself fresh back from our ‘Jolly Boys Outing” with all four of us DJ’ing at the Skegness Weekender. It was great also to see the return of PHIL RAINS and early doors support from Mick Beeby pulling out some lovely underplayed tunes from 60’s and 70’s.

Congratulations on the 5th Anniversary and many thanks to Russ, Ray, Mick, Steve and Carl for a fantastic night of quality soul music... here's to the next 5 years.

 

Looking forward to the "Summer Special Crossover, 70s & Mid-tempo" event on 20th June and helping Russ & Ray celebrate their 50th on the 4th July.

 

Hopefully catch up with some of you who attended last night at Soul Spirit in Boston tonight.

Thanks gents......Andy, Brian and I had brilliant night again!  :thumbup:

 

Such a great range of soul in one room and after the news earlier this week, loved hearing and dancing to Frankie Knuckles "Tears" towards the end, sandwiched between just superb choices of older and rarer sounds...too many to remember.

 

Congrats on 5 years and please keep it rolling! Until next time :hatsoff2:

Thanks for the post Pete! I remember the story - you wandering/hanging around the bus station!! Known you for a while now Pete - remember the Sunday Soul sessions over at Rushden and also around the late 1990's at 'Breaks' in Peterborough - doing a similar night (music policy wise) to Caliente.

 

Pete - the legend!

 

Thank you to all that have posted the kind comments on Soul-Source and to everyone that has supported 'Caliente' over the last 5 years.

 

Ray
