The Soul Shack Details

The Soul Shack

The Genesis Centre 32-46 King St, Alfreton DE55 7DQ

2nd August and the first Saturday of each month

Following a very successful time at Hollingwood Hotel Chris and Terry are now into the second month at the new venue.

We now have a venue with a large room and 'overflow' dance floor (which may be a 2nd room in the future) and separate bar area. Comfortable seating, cheap bar, good car parking (massive car park to the rear of the building)

Top DJs from around the UK will join us each month to play quality Northern, semi known, rarer and underplayed / forgotten vinyl from the 60s and 70s: If you like to listen to Northern Soul the way we used to and not overwhelmed with the same old tunes than why not pay us a visit? We would love to welcome you !

£3.50 - 8pm until 1am

Chris Cooper: 07715 297239

Terry Westhead: 07970 559132

We are following on from the success of last month where the guest DJs - Steve Connolly and Pete Eccles did us proud; Stephen (of Alderley Edge) played from his heart and his memories of the early days with a fabulous selection of tunes.

Pete Eccles who knows his stuff and what a storming set he played.

As always Chris and Terry picked the tunes that did the bizz!!!!

Finally, and more importantly, a massive thank you to all who attended the first night and made into a great success. As Terry says "Without you we would be some sad old sods playing to an empty room"

Back next Month, August 2nd with the legend that is Andy Powell - Get ready for a hot and busy night!!!

Great night in prospect.  The weather will have cooled down a tad but it will be red hot in Alfreton this Saturday.  Andy Powell will be guesting.  Quality DJ with a selection of Records I can only dream of.  Maybe he could play Cover Girl for Chris ???  Will make sure the Floor isn't as well polished as last Month and they will have sorted the Bar.  Fabulous venue, nice Main Room and a lovely quieter second 'Room'.  Plenty of Parking around the back and plenty of great Music inside.  Hopefully we will see you there.

Just over 24 hours to go and we're back in the Soul Shack. If it's anything like the last one, we should be in for a cracking night

Well, it was hot and it was busy! We had over 100 lovely people who had taken the time and effort to visit The Shack and as someone said there was a real 'buzz' about the place tonight. I'm sure no one could have left disappointed with the mix of music on offer with Mark, Terry and Chris ably supporting the Top Man tonight; Andy Powell, whose spot was blinding! If people left tonight wanting to come back next month then the lads have done a good job and I for one think they had it absolutely right tonight! Hope to see you next month Sharon X

Hat tip to all those behind last night's gig. 10/10 for the tunes, venue, crowd, parking, reasonable bar prices, etc. etc. only gripes? It's a long way to the toilets for those of us with (ahem) "bladder issues" :huh:  oh and did you really mean to play Lorenzo Manley, Chris? hahahaha!

Seriously, top venue and well worth a visit, to these ears and feet.

Great night, top tunes and the dance floor was spot on.

Soul Shack has taken over where the Hollingwood left off but with a bigger venue, bigger crowd and all in a massive tent lol!

Until next month carry on camping!

Had a great night at The Soul Shack. An evening of quality Soul. Not so much Rare Soul just the music we don't hear so much but when you do OMG, the memories !!!
Thanks to Mark Mellors for his contribution not only on the Decks but as an Ambassador for the Club ! Massive thanks to Andy Powell travelling up from Leicestershire to play an awesome set that had the floor heaving under the pounding feet. Had a couple of Visitors from LA in the Good Old US of A. They weren't shy about getting on the Floor and as the Lady said, showing us her Chicago Shuffle. Chris J Cooper as always did the biz with myself finishing things off. The Floor was perfect and the Bar worked fine. Some nice comments, not just about the Music but also about the Venue. Next Months guest is Nottinghamshire's own Mr John Poole, looks like being another great night. Thanks to all who attended and hopefully we will see you in September. Never been ? See you in September perhaps
