. Local supporters can buy tickets from Jims "Back to Mono"vinyl record shop _(oppo. the Slug and Lettuce pub).Get your tickets asap as they are limited .You may also be interested to hear that Sheffield author Tony Beesley will be a guest of the club.The relevance of this is that Tony's latest book ",Sawdust Caesars: Originall Mod Voices ",will include pages and pictures from Lincolns original mod scene '66 to '69 .The Duke,as the" in-crowds" club was called,was held upstairs at The Duke of Wellington pub (now closed)in Lincolns Broadgate.It is the DNA of this ORIGINAL club,bringing rare/underplayed music to a CULT scene that has morphed into our own Ad-Lib Club.That's our HISTORY..In fact there will be a small piece in the book relating to the Ad-Lib Club and some pics of some of our support showing its STYLE.That's what the Ad-Lib Club is about.CULT-STYLE-HISTORY.

    Hope you don't miss out on the night by leaving it too late so buy your tickets asap.
Thanks for reading,Glenn

Dj Profile of MACE-Stoke

 

 
I discovered the Mod scene in the early 80s, and although those Mod revival bands sparked my interest, I soon started to dig deeper and quickly latched onto Soul, Blues, Latin Boogaloo and Jazz.
I've been obsessively chasing obscure 45s from these genres ever since, through to my current activity on the Rare Soul / R&B scene some 30+ years later.  
 
I promoted my first event at the tender age of 15, and was soon travelling far and wide to support other like-minded events.
 
DJing came slightly later, around the age of 17, at both Mod events and local Northern Soul nights.
 
I co-promoted the 'Rhythm & Soul Set' Mod Weekenders in the late 80s/early 90s with Rob Messer, and have more recently promoted various Rare Soul and R&B Allnighters at Bidds in Stoke.
 
All this has resulted in me being fortunate to DJ at many established Mod / R&B / Soul events over the last 30+ years.
 
As a vinyl vulture I regularly go on record hunting trips to the USA.
You can't beat digging through dusty boxes in the hope of finding that elusive disc.....and let's be honest.....you can NEVER have too many records !
 
Regards
Mace

Dj profile of DEKKA (Derek Hamer)

Well, where do I start, I think first and foremost I'm a scooterist.

Born in Barnsley in 1958, grew up seeing the mods in Barnsley in the 60's on their scooters and all I wanted ever since then was a scooter, got my first scooter in the mid 70's and the first thing I did was 'modded' it up, it was pre revival time and I loved every minute of it, music influences then was Northern Soul, Ska and revival mod, sold my scoot in the 80's when I got married, then almost 20 years later bought my 1966 SX200 Lambretta.

Scooter rallies are my passion and you will find me at most of them.

Frequented Allnighters such as Keele, Winsford, Prestwich, Middleton,etc and especially Burnley on Friday nights. My love of RnB was sparked at Middleton in the down stairs room and Burnley, although Burnley was more uptempo early 60's soul.

My love of British RnB/beat began at an early age and from the revival time, however, I've only been collecting rare British RnB/beat over recent years, although, every where I'm asked to play on the wider scene I always play some British in my sets. I've Played out my British RnB/Beat from various venues around the country from London to York and all points in between.

I co-promote 'The dogs bollocks' RnB soul nights and frequent underground Mod venues such as 'The pelican club', 'Ad-Lib' etc of which I know draw my influences.

What now amazes me are like minded British RnB/beat music collectors (of which there aren't many) who I have the utmost admiration for.

My passion now is totally focussed on pre 1966 British RnB/beat music.

Pleased to say Colin Brown (Essex) has accepted our Ad-lib Club invite for June 7th to play some of his Jamaican R&B/Ska collection in the Chill-out lounge 8.30pm to 9.00pm.Colin played some top tunes in the main room last time round so if you're into the HISTORY of the ORIGINAL scene listen to his set as this gendre was a part of the early underground scene.Imagine the Ad-Lib Club a as shabeen for the night, without the six- skinners, and you'll feel you've been transported back in time to those magical,never to be bettered early formulative years that started it all.

A special occasion for me getting to play my pre 1966 British RnB influences at one of the most influential Mod clubs in the country.

Gonna be mixture of tempos from Hammond and harmonica RnB grooves to raising the roof with maximum RnB from the most influential British bands of the time from around the country.

The sheffields

The Measles

The Mark leaman five

Tony Knight's chessman

The zephyrs

Mark four

all these mixed in with a few less obscure, such as

John Mayall

Alexeis korner

Zoot money

and many more

see you all at the go go children

Feedback on the night was exceptional.Long time supporters,first timers."Amazing","doesn't get better than this","awesome""brilliant".So many superlatives.All this from a hot,condensation dripping cellar-bar in the beautiful, sleepy cathedral city of Lincoln.Every dj was held in the highest esteem by the knowledgable supporters at the club.The club thanks you all.The "experiment" of the British r&b influences set is proving to be a winner.Dekka took on the "task" of "educating"our traditional black r&b fans and the feedback is that the Ad-Libbers open-mindedness support this.Thankyou Dekka.It does provide an alternative "take" on our scene.Variety is the spice of life !!!!Hope the djs can find the time to post their playlists as I was inundated on the night by fans wanting to know tracks they hadn't heard before.

Glenn,

The British is an absolute winner, the accolades I had was humbling, I wish to thank all the people who gave me such encouragement during my set, also to Andrew vassey, Nick porter and Christian who have encouraged and supported me.

Many thanks also to the Mod boys (sorry I don't remember your names) and the boys and girls from Liverpool (hope you enjoyed the Undertakers, played especially for you)

finally and most importantly to Glenn, for having the foresight to bring in the British, long may it now continue.

sincerely and fraternily

dekka

With the likes of Colin Brown and Dekka which room you stay in becomes very difficult with the "chill-out" room i would imagine going past its original remit.Both DJs providing very different takes on the original scene.

Zoot Money,Chris Farlowe,John Mayall and Alexis Korner names that readily spring to mind when thinking of the torchbearers of the British RnB scene but stand out tracks from an impressive stand out playlist (for me)were the Yardbirds and the Mark Leaman Five,pleasure to listen to.Lots of 45s that i wish i had in my box

H I Nic,you're right about the Chill-Out room.It was originally set up to play the slower tracks of our music policy as a background whilst folk had a natter.The djs seem to have pumped up the volume in there and increased the tempo somewhat (probably due to peer pressure from the support in the room, especially as the night goes on !!!!) I don't want it to become a room duplicating the main room.and competing with it.This room does allow us to play more Jamaican and more British influence r&b which won't be predominant in the main room. Again we are trying to get the balance right between the rooms so as folk can decide which room and  at which time to listen to a different variation of the music.Thanks for your constructive comment as it keeps us on the right path !
