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

I know I'm rubbish at popping on here but it looks like everyone else is too. :lol:

 

I've only just selected that I'm going so how am I to expect others to do the same. :wink:

 

Knee deep in preparations at the min (no it doesn't just fall into place).

 

But still loving it after 12 years and hope some of you will be able to join our party :thumbup:

There has been a little hiccup with the DJ line up and for once it wasn't me :lol:

Soul Sam has said that I must put all the blame on him. :wink:

We booked him last September but when he transfered his dates to this years diary, he put us in the wrong date.

He already has his flights booked for Toulouse and as he's had such a hard time of late, plus I really like him, we have given him our blessing and forgiveness and let him off until later in the year.

I'm sorry to all who wanted to hear him but Lee Vowles will still keep those who like the more modern side happy. :thumbsup:

No chance of that - though there will certainly be some very poor (but enthusiastic) dancing.

Not one to jinx things but this is looking to be a pretty busy night.

 

So, instead of opening the Freestyle Room an hour after the Main Room, we will be opening both rooms at 8pm... :)

 

Andrew Skelson (Trill) will be flying in from the Netherlands & will join Greavesy on the decks for the first hour.

 

Thanks boys and play nice :thumbsup:

Wow what a night. We got there a little late thanks to the junction we needed being closed (we're jinxed! :lol: ) but it just meant that by the time we got there the place was rocking! Loads of friends old and new were there. The dance floor was full in both rooms at times. Just a great night generally. 

 

Thanks to John Weston for playing The Traditions for me. Great to finally meet Ali Nightingale after many years as friends on Facebook! 

 

Rugby by just gets better with age. Happy anniversary Ruggers!

 

We had to leave at 4 unfortunately because of a family birthday today but when we left the place was still going strong. Sorry to have missed the last DJs sets as I really enjoyed the music last night.

 

Until April...... :thumbsup:

It's all been said but I repeat it Awesome night! so many friends there and I made a few more. I need to thank a few people Dean and Sian for their kind hospitality and cheap pizza sorry we never came back but we had to get to the airport. Big thanks to Loren for inviting me to spin a few with him in the freestyle room, I think he made a mistake, our styles are like chalk and cheese, but he said he had fun and so did I. He felt rough after as we were celebrating his birthday, too much John Smiths. Musically I didn't venture into they in to the main room apart from when Phil Shields and Loren were on, Phil also feeling rough, I hope both will be feeling well soon. I spent most of night in the freestyle room and what a treat it was Jonny Weston, Carl Fortnum and just ahead on the night for me was John Silvester because of youth and no boundary approach to playing. Then Jonny Weston set was brill, toss a coin time. I must not forget to thank Dale for bringing me down and taking Loren to the airport. The freestyle room is what all about I would say probably 1 in 10 records played in this type of room will be played in the main room in about 10 years, so remember where you heard it first .

RESPECT

Have to agree with all comments above - our first time at Rugby & we had a cracking time. Spent most of our time in main room & just so nice to hear a real mixture of sounds & not the same old tunes, kept us on the dancefloor for most of the night. Well done to all involved.

What a great night thoroughly enjoyed by the Irish squad .

 

Some great tunes played and I spent most of my night on the dancefloor  , some tired legs at work today but well worth it . 

 

Well done to all for another great anniversary and here's to many more :yes:

Bit of a rubbish response here but my excuse is that we'd had no proper internet since Sunday morning so everything so far has been via my phone.

 

So a quick thank you to the DJs, attendees and helpers...you made our 12th anniversary a fantastic night. :thumbsup:

 

Although I'm not sure how impressed I was at everyone coming and telling me how good it was whilst I was stuck on door duty :ohmy:

 

Next one is: 11th April. I will try and get the event up tonight :thumbup:

First time at Rugby,had a really good night out,went there with my good mates ,nice normal,sensible people like myself Kimbo and Mark,they said I would love it which I  must admit I did,lots of freindly faces I know were there and there was a great atmosphere about the place.Wide variety of music and some nice stuff unknown to me ears in the small room.We were a bit late getting there so we didnt get our c.d s,never mind  .Chris had a denim jacket style leather jacket I had a black similar one in the seventies love to get mine back as there werent many even then but theres no way I would fit into it for a start,it would fit Kimbos dog the Guv,nor   more as a dog coat than any hope of me wearing it as a jacket,great bloke Chris and stylish as hell,as Kimbo says Chris is always Superfly smart with his own style,nice to say hello to ingrid didnt see her there till near the end.Quality line up and variety of choon spinners kept the floor busy best part of the night,looking forward to going again.Good to see Billy from norwich as always.Afterwards Kimbo had an extra passenger,Les top bloke and a great lad to enjoy company with.In fact there were so many good company soulers at  Rugby that night it should have been called the "Good Soul Company Nighter".

RUGBY & I AIN'T TALKING BALLS.  
 
Where to begin? It's been a while since I put pen to paper for a Venue review but this is different because there were people there I'd not seen or spent time with for some time, so thanks to them you get the tale of Rugby past.  
 
Rugby's always a great night, why? Because the Dj's are given free rein to play what they want, therefore you get an eclectic mix, so as we've done for the past too many years we meet up at ours with Kev & Pauline and raise a glass to Gail's once again teen birthday (How many years are these teen years?), Gail's all giddy because she hasn't seen her mate Dynamite Donna since November and there won't be enough hours or words in the night to catch up, and it'll give Dave a break from the constant chatter. So it's down the A1 to Blideth for the Big Fella Paul and we spend an hour toasting Gail's health etc again (No not me I'm designated Driver as usual) and Gail leaves Cath a homemade fruit loaf, giving her a head start on Mr Greedy Guts who would demolish it in 2 sittings given the chance. Anyway off we charge with Paul acting as Sat-Nav Sam whilst poor Kev is tethered in the back with the 2 Tommy Gun Talkers and their none stop rattling, as it's on the way there it's very light hearted but by morning the mood will have changed to Death by a thousand Insults but that's another story, Paul says we'll be there by 9:40pm Yeh providing the Slip Roads at every junction aren't closed, as happens or seems to everytime Rugby's on, now it's nice Countryside there in daylight but doesn't quite have the same endearing quality at night when catching doggers in full beam on Country lanes when all you want to do is get to the Bloody Venue!!!!!!!!!!! So we arrived at 9:09pm having throttled down from warp speed to Reginald Molehusband legal speed limit, there's a Cop shop next door you know.  
 
All parked up and the scrummage in the boot finished, it's off to the Dance, we round the corner and I spot Non-Stop Donna which means I've lost Gail as usual for at least 30 minutes or until I get annoyed and growl at her to come in as I'm sick of carrying around her bloody drink like Jeeves & Wooster. Ken's in Mrs Wood mode as usual collecting door tax and Dean can be seen peering back through the glass double doors like a child locked outside whilst your Mum makes you finish your tea but not a Sian in sight (Try saying that when your p*ssed), usual suspects in the Bar, Donny's top Dj Dick Krop (Get him booked) but no Mary, Roger the Dodger Banks, Long suffering Dave Raistrick, Lou & Woody (Who doesn't look a day over 59, amazing), Man in a Man Bag Killa, John Wayout Weston and Dave Rimmer looking very happy as Jessica is on a sponsored silence. More of the gang about Town arrive through the night, Vic & Gail, Steve & Brigitte, Gilly & Nicola and more but some missing like Nesta & that Kev H, anyway look who's here Rich finally forced out by Cat so we can grouse about everything and everyone, Bev for first time in I don't know how long and Col Wood with Shirl as he has now finished his Community Service work with This Little Piggy & Co. Seems it's Birthday week also, it was Gails on Wednesday her Sister Kerry's on 9th, Matt Sneath on the night of Rugby and Ian Mick McManus's around that time, he arrived fashionably late with Slimline Mick, Mandy, Wendy, Mike Cog and “This is our once a year day” Jan Cog, low and behold part way through the night I spot an apparition or is it an Angel from the past? No it's Hannah H but Fireman Sam's not along for the ride, he's too busy starring in London's Burning, been a few years and it was so good to see her but how dare she not look a day older.
 
 Tried the Little room but for some reason couldn't get into it but had a chat to Dale & Andy Hudson, so into the main room and the place is buzzing and getting busier as people arrive throughout the night from other Venues and Detours around closed exits off the M1. Coop's is about with his Camera and as usual he's hidden Nettie away in the dark corner by the stage, there's lots of new faces I don't know and some I don't wanna know,specially those who take the p*ss out of people dancing or seem to want to dance you off the floor, grow up you planks. Seems we have the Justin Biebers & Miley Cyrus's of Northern with us dancing the night away also, they stay down the front in the soft glow of stardom, I remember when we did the same, oh the joys of youth, I notice Billy joined em down there to try and rekindle his “This England” glory years. Anyway enough, the music as ever was varied and I particularly enjoyed Daz Dakin's set of Oldies with the superb Alice Clarke — You hit me, being the high light, Someone, I'm unsure who, played Connie — Servicemen, a fav of mine, Woody was another highlight for me along with Carl “Max Bygraves” Fortnum and John Weston, there was some nice Cleethorpes/70's also played early in the night but my eyesight and standing at the rear of the room, well it could have been anyone but it don't matter, it was just good.  
 
Round about 4 it started to thin out and not long after Dave corralled Donna and shepherded her away, the bar was bereft of records and dealers and there was enough room on the dancefloor for me to swing my pants but once Thelma Lindsey closely followed by (or vica versa) by JoAnn Courcy hit the airways I know it's time to say my Goodbyes and go start up, de-ice and warm up the battle bus, as it will take until Mr Rimmers finished plus an extra 30 minutes or so before the crew realise they have to leave, I spend this time productively by watching Kit and Adam Topping race and jump remote controlled cars around the carpark. Till next time.
 
 
 Take care, be safe and remember
”Happy, I'm so happy, I'm happy, I'm happy”,
Spot.

You really need to do these more often.

I always looked forward to a read, especially when I couldn't remember the night :lol:

 

And what do you mean, no sign of me on the door? I worked my butt off on Saturdee :)
