"Dab of Soul by the Seaside" Weekender! Details

“Dab of Soul by the Seaside”

We are pleased to present our very first “Dab of Soul at the Seaside” weekender which will take place on the weekend of 26/27/28th September 2014.

The venue for the weekender will be the fantastic “Regency Royal hotel” situated on the sea-front in the picturesque seaside town of Llandudno, North Wales. You can check out the hotel website here http://www.regencyroyalhotel.co.uk/ The venue boasts a great cellar bar area with a wooden dance-floor, low ceiling and a bar area suitable for record dealers. I`m sure everyone will love the venue! There is also an extensive bar area upstairs which will be used for music during the day time. Food and drinks will be available at all times during the weekend.

Our aim is to book the best soul DJs around and with the musical accent firmly on the 70s/Crossover/Midtempo 60s vibe we are pleased to confirm our guest DJs so far as Matt Fox (Germany) and Mark Whiteley with more to be added. There will also be a number of “Collector spots” during the daytime giving collectors the chance to showcase their tunes.

The cost for the weekend for two night`s accommodation and a full weekend pass is £80.00 per person which I`m sure you will agree represents excellent value for money. There are three types of room available, Twin, Single and Double. These are available on a first come first served basis so please get your booking in early.

Please confirm your booking by email to chris.soul@btinternet.com .Payments can be made by PayPal to adabofsoul@btinternet.com or by sending a cheque for the full amount made payable to “Dab of Soul Weekender” to C.Anderton,1 Jackson av, Nantwich, Cheshire, CW5 6LL.

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

Friday update- We now have 22 rooms reserved, not bad in less than 36 hours!. By reserved I mean booked and paid for...If you have not done yours yet please do it this weekend. We only have all 61 rooms on hold for one month so it is important we get a good number of early bookings. A big thanks to everyone who has booked so far.

Single rooms are proving popular and there are now only 5 left so if you were thinking of coming alone please get in touch.

We are just waiting on one more DJ to confirm before we confirm the final main evening DJ line-up. Of course there will be plenty of great stuff played by collectors throughout the day-time sessions too!

Have a great weekend and keep spreading the word!

Firstly, thanks for agreeing to join us on our first “Dab of Soul at the seaside” soul weekend! Only 6 weeks or so to go now and things are looking very positive indeed!

As promised, just a few points regarding the upcoming weekend. If we have not answered your question or if there is anything you are unsure of please don’t hesitate to ask.

- You can check in at the hotel from 2.00pm on Friday 26th September.

- When you are checked in you will be issued with your room key and a wristband for each person in your party.

- Wristbands must be worn at all times throughout the weekend.

- Music will be played in the bar area each day from 12.00pm (2.00pm Friday) until 7.00pm. The evening events will run from 8.00pm until 3.00am. The Sunday event will run from 12.00pm until 4.00pm.

- Record dealers are welcome but if you are intending to bring more than a “100 box” please let us know.

- Any issues with the hotel rooms should be addressed to the hotel manager.

- The hotel does not permit take-away food being brought into hotel rooms so please be aware of this…or be careful!

- Because of the way the hotel is constructed and the position of the water tank please allow shower/bath taps to run for a couple of minutes to obtain hot water.

Guest DJ spots.

We have been inundated with requests for DJ spots during the collectors daytime sessions. Unfortunately it is impossible to give everyone a spot. We have taken the decision to make the collectors spots 45 minutes in duration, this way we can give more people a chance to show what they can do! Some people will be disappointed but we will do our very best to accommodate these guys next year. Who wants to be a DJ anyway?...Just come and have a good time!

The “Collectors spots” will be published a couple of weeks before the event. If you cannot make your allotted time please let us know so we can arrange for someone to take your place. If you are lucky enough to do a DJ spot please stick to the timings and do not over-run…it`s just not fair on the other DJ`s.

So, that`s it. We will communicate more information as we get it. We still have a few weekend passes for sale so if you know anyone who is still “thinking about it” they don`t have too much time to get it booked!

Looking forward to seeing you on the 26th for what will be a fantastic weekend!

Chris and Dave.

Really enjoyed this, especially the Saturday afternoon sessions, some superb music played. Hope the DJs can post their playlists as I only noted down a few. That Johnnie Taylor one the Flanny played seemed to interest a lot of my friends.

 

Sorry to miss the Friday afternoon but the journey from London was very difficult due to traffic and road works.

 

Thanks to Paul and Helen McKay for their company and for Paul driving, it wasn't easy either way.

 

Good to see plenty of my friends, everyone seemed to enjoy the weekend. Llandudno has a certain charm about it, and the weather was very kind. Looking out of the window of the bar on Saturday afternoon you might have imagined yourself on the Riviera. As Dave Swift said all you needed were some starlets to walk by and you'd have been there.

 

Congratulations Chris and Dave, and thanks to all the DJs. Hope there's one next year.

We had a great weekend many thanks! Lovely to catch up with friends both old and new. Missed a few afternoon set's sadly as did some touristy bits (lovely place!) but heard lots of brilliant music right throughout the weekend. If I have to pick one set of all the great ones Steve Plumb's set on Friday was simply superb. Did not know that much of what was played in his set which was even better :-)

Thank you so much for the kind comments MUCH appreciated.

 

What a superb weekender - I'm sure anyone into 70's, Crossover and mid tempo 60's had a ball, we certainly did!

 

Thanks again

 

Cheers

Steve
