Wilton's Soulful Sessions - Soul Sam Added Details

Marvin Smith Concert Cancelled

Early this morning we received an email from Marvin Smith, cancelling his performance on the 15th November at the Wilton’s Soulful Sessions, on medical grounds.

Marvin has just been diagnosed with TMJ, a condition which affects the jaw and muscles of the face.

Val and myself are very sorry that this has happened, but the situation is obviously out of our control. We have put so much work and money into this event over the past year, and we are totally devastated with this news. We are not big time promoters, so the financial cost will be painful.

We will continue with the event on 15th November at the Wilton without Marvin, and will add to the DJ line up.

People who have purchased tickets and don’t want to attend, will be offered a full £20 refund.

However, we hope many of you will still attend the event, at a reduced admission charge, and allow us to give you your remaining refund on the night; this would help us logistically and financially to recover from this situation.

People who bought their tickets by Paypal and will not be attending on the night will be refunded in due course. We have your email and postal addresses so we will be in touch.

We know many of you have booked hotel accommodation and we are sorry for this inconvenience.

This event was dedicated to memory of the late Rick from Anglo (Richard Foster) and will still continue with that theme.

This is a major disappointment to everyone, including Marvin; he was so looking forward to performing at his concert, and now has a medical condition that could end his singing career.

We will still be selling Marvin’s Unissued Masters CD but sadly he won’t be there to sign them for you.

This is a major setback for us, but if you still attend the event the financial burden won’t be as great, and will allow us to continue next year with our plans to bring another artist over for her debut UK concert.

We are sincerely sorry.

Welcome to the Wilton's Soulful Sessions - Soul Sam Added Comments sectiom

This event is now over. Look up now to read the latest reviews of this soul event

LATEST UPDATE!

 

Tickets are now available online at www.wheatsheaf.com/allnighter by PayPal or Credit Card.

 

Tickets are £20 + paypal and postage charges. OTD price is £23 if not sold out. 

 

Tickets are already selling fast so don't miss out on this fantastic night.

 

Marvin is so excited to be able to perform in the UK again and have the chance to include his previously unissued songs in a full concert all of his own. His performance will be split into two sets as we did last year with Debbie Taylor (Maydie Miles). After the concert, Marvin will be available for signing autographs etc. Expect to hear not only his unissued songs, that he has never performed on stage before, but also classics from his time as lead singer for the Artistics and his solo work produced by the late Carl Davis and Curtis Mayfield.

 

Add to that the unforgettable professional musicians of the band PUSH - we can't fail to have another fantastic night at the Wilton's Soulful Sessions.

 

November 15th will be on us before we know it! So get ya tickets now!

MARVIN SMITH AT WILTON'S SOULFUL SESSIONS

 

Only 6 weeks to go!  So if you are intending to be at this fantastic event get your tickets now. At last year's event with Debbie Taylor we had the usual last minute rush for tickets, which not only caused us a lot of last minute work trying to get tickets out to you in the post in time, but also some people were unable to get tickets at all, because the event was sold out. Quite a few of the old Wilton Allnighter regulars left it untill the last minute and were disappointed, which was upsetting to all concerned.

 

Marvin will be signing, exclusively to this event, a cd containing his previously unreleased tracks:

 

"I Never Thought I'd Be Losing You" - "Peace" - "Hearts Made Of Stone" - "Heartache Coming On"

 

Howard will be selling the latest edition of SOUL UP NORTH featuring The Marvin Smith Story, which Marvin will be only too pleased to sign for you.

 

After the Debbie Taylor concert last year people said - "How are you gonna top that next year"?

Well with your help, we're gonna try. With MARVIN SMITH and the band PUSH we should have another fantastic concert.

 

So come on guys get your tickets NOW!

Val & Myself are so touched by the comments we have received since we posted the news that Marvin was ill and was unable to do his concert at the Wilton Soulfull Sessions night on the 15th November.

We wish him a speedy recovery and hope he can continue his singing career.

As most of you know we are still continuing with the night with DJ's only. Soul Sam has agreed to join Arthur Fenn, Mike Charlton, Mouse & myself, so after our major disappointment we are looking forward to another soulful night at the Wilton.

 

Admission on the door £8.00.   9.00pm - 3.00am.  Marvin's Concert ticket holders who attend will be refunded on the door. Bring your tickets with you.  No ticket, No refund.

For Mavin's fans who are still attending the night you will still hear Marvin's full concert songs, I will play all of his proposed set, including his unissued songs, in my set on the night.

Don't forget Marvin's Unissued Masters CD will still be available for sale on the night. This CD is for sale exclusively at the Wilton and when they're gone that's it.

Also Mr "Howard Soul Up North" will be selling his wonderful fanzine on the night featuring a major article and interview with Marvin Smith, a must buy on the night!!

We would like to thank all of you who have refused our offer of refunds to help us financially, both now and to help us continue with another great live concert for 2015.

Thank you so much for all your PM's, posts, emails and phone calls of concern.

Dave & Val

Dave/Val;

 

Top night for me, even found some legs to have a dance, those four unissued tracks are sublime, playing as I type.

 

Thankyou

Great night thanks. Fog was a mare on the M1 there and back, but nothing foggy about the soul played by everyone. That in-house sound system is something else too!

 

Worth the journey just to hear those unreleased Marvin tracks and even better to now have them on CD thank you.

 

Some cool soul stories and plenty of banter in the car as usual. Looking forward to hearing who's lined up to perform in person next year hopefully, then for the big one in 2016.  :)

 

Cheers, Steve

Great night & a deserved success for Dave & Val.Many thanks & thank you for the hospitality too.

 

Dave played the 1st track from Mavin's CD & I went up & asked him what he was playing it was that good.

 

So many faces new & old (Andy Mann was in the room next to me at the hotel & his journey there put's my trek to SSS at Kettering to shame Steve - he really did jump on a plane!!!)

 

Good to see Mr & Mrs Farrell (also booked at same hotel) & to put a face to Chalky who haunts the pages(threads) of SS
