Looking forward to your performance iggy, certain you are going to blow peoples socks of in the first set. Hope people see this event in good time because we have a guest DJ JOHNNY GREENWOOD that everybody wants and only we've got. As a personal favour he is going to show people at NCSC why he used to get 350 people into a venue licenced for 150. Promises to be a blowing off the roof night.

Hi Christy...The last DJ wants to educate people about what Soul music is out there that is very infrequently played..This event is about well known with the odd memory jerker or song you've not heard before but all good dancers...So he has gone to play his personal choices somewhere else. The 3rd on Guy, the guest of the night loves the venue and has joined us permanently. His name is Simon Alsop and had quite a fan club at The Southside Club in Nottingham. We are more than happy to have him. Hope that meets your requirements sir.

An awesome night last month at this place. No wonder other venue's are saying not to go here they must be worried about this one. Usually you can sit for long periods waiting to dance but not here, they seem to play for the majority not themselves!. Was a little bit surprised by the last DJ as he seemed to do his own thing some of the time, perhaps he didn't have the right type of records with him. I am coming again this month and bringing some of my work friends.

Be great to see you Mr Paddywack, hope you enjoy our little 'love in'...Susan, the last DJ is no longer with us his taste in Soul is different to the kind of night this is, it is mainly a thumping oldies but goodies night. All good dancing records. And your friends are in for a complete one off event. Johnny Greenwood on the decks for one night only.....not to be missed!!!

And so it continues....Any way..went out Saturday night to The Festival Nottingham for the first time in over 40 years. Absolutely loved it. Fitzi and Mrs Fitzi absolutely straight down the line. Also had their trials and tribulations in the soul scene some of their past experiences from other individuals was blood curdling. I was the only one putting out flyers from another event..draw from that what you will?..really enjoyed the night and a real friendly party atmosphere. People in the full Northern regalia etc..

 

Nice to have an evening out where everybody talks to everybody else and have a laugh and a dance. A change from being glared at for trying to continue an institution in Nottingham, having your flyers ripped up, or the only ones on a big table being used to stand beer glasses on and soaked through, or being tucked under everybody else s flyers so you can't see them. Not to mention all the other stuff highlighted before.

 

Any way we are here for people who have the courage to make their own decisions...

Also just occurred to me, I have received recent messages of support etc.. if anybody try's to message me I am afraid I cannot reply to you as my message facility has been removed from me for the time being, so I cannot see if you have messaged me or reply. So please do not get offended if you have messaged me and you think I am ignoring you..

Just a small addendum to this situation...I am being monitored by Soul Source with a view to my account being allowed to continue so I am limited on what I can say. But would like to point out the allegations are being backed by those involved with other collaborating events and so have vested interests. It seems we really are outlaws to the establishment rather like Northern Soul was in its original day's. I hope we become a haven for those who love the music and just want to enjoy an evening away from the clickyness or perhaps have been on the receiving end of this kind of exclusion themselves.

A wonderful first night last month, 85 bodies in our cosey club, peeps from York, Skegby, Lincolnshire and Birmingham...and probably other exotic places I am not aware of. Looking forward to more classic soul and all movers tomorrow at this quaint place. Hope to see you there

Another good night.The attendance a little lower than the first event.But the soulies that did  attend seemed to be having a good time.Great music played by the dj's and good friendly  atmosphere.Would  also like to say the organiser of the event went out of his way to speak to me  and many others.Seems like a very decent bloke.Until next time.

Our first trip over and it won't be the last, good sized car park on arrival a friendly welcome with a smile at the door and a good sized club with a good dance floor and bar facilities , varied music all night which catered for everyone and as the above comment , never met the bloke before but he came and spoke to us and seemed like someone that clearly enjoys doing what he's doing and I/we wish him well. See you again .

Thank you for your very kind words cittaeht447, I feel very humbled by being handed the batton to try and keep this wonderful little club going. Many people have said they like the changes and for the first time I saw that people with strength of character and a love for the music and the scene as it used to be will try and keep this event going to provide enjoyment and the ability to meet and gain like minded friends. Again many people from considerable distances. I hope more people from Nottingham have the courage to discover for themselves this little gem effectively in their street.

 

The DJ's (excepting me of course) played phenomenal sets. We are privileged that they are prepared to go against this unpleasant thing that pervades the soul scene and soldier on. We seem to be gaining a reputation for being a 'non clicky' club. All are welcome and we are determined to try to make your visit enjoyable.

 

Until next time fair minded soulies, take care, and looking forward to meeting you again.
