   Well chaps,

    time's slipping by us again & we'll soon be round to the Third Saturday in October, about five weeks away I think. Really looking forward to our night at the "Pocket" with special guest Roger coming along to join us with his brilliant collection all on lovely original vinyl, plus his Record Sales Bar. I'm sure they'll be a few surprises in store to keep the dance floor buzzing.

  Take care Folks, catch you all again soon, Woody   :hatsoff2:

Hi All,

   just got back from the "Bessemer" in Sheffield, great way to spend a Sunday afternoon me thinks.....

    Infact thats our second trip out to Sheff this weekend, we were at "Route 61" on Friday spreading the Word about "The Corner Pocket" & Our Manchester venue "City Centre Soul" at "The Old Nags Head". The "Bess & "61" are both great venue's & deserve loads of support, top sounds & top atmosphere at both them.

    Soon be October Folks, lass than a month now to when we kick off at "The Pocket".

   Keep checking this Blog for more laughs, banter, info & updates along the way to Saturday the 18th of next month, speak soon Everybody, Woody :hatsoff2:

Looking forward to getting back to Mexborough  - really enjoyed the pocket last time round and with a lovely new refurb and well priced beer this is sure to be a great night.  One of many more we both hope.  Its going to fill the hole on the third Sat created by loss of the civic.  So its nearly here...we are doing all the last minute run round, checking all the gear and arranging a sound check for next weekend...then its roll on the 18th.  Thanks so much for all the posts and support...especially the volunteer fliering agents and all the lovely comments received so far Saturday Soul at the Corner Pocket could not have had a better start. See you all there on 18th...looking forward to some great spots from Roger and Russ and of course Mr. Greenhoff (who did such a great job in August for us at our Manchester venue ) and Mr. Wood (who still thinks he's the boss/calendar pin-up...but how can you take him seriously in that get-up!)

Love Miss T X

Nice to be back at our usual third Saturday too, which apart from the lay off we've been doing for the last eight years at "The Robin Hood", "Mexborough Civic" & "The Corner Pocket", yeah good to be back......

Evening all,

 

And yes time is moving along so very fast and isn't now to far away from the first night of the re-launched "Corner Pocket" so i'm really looking forward to have the chance to get behind the decks and spin some great soul music at this very well anticipated event and with the feed back so far it's going to be a cracker!

 

Shezz hope this helps with your question "and i thought captain pugwash was only a cartoon charicter dave lol"

 

Separated At Birth?

I might have made a mistake with Mr Wood, who has full SAS training, revenge is a dish better served cold as the saying goes!......so I might have blown my chances of ever getting a certain Ann Caudell record off him, damn.

Russell,

    can I just say "if you want the 8:00pm while 8:15pm spot keep pushing it & it's all yours"..... (lol). Remember the old saying "Don't Bite The Hand That Feeds You". As for thee Shez, there's another old saying "Tha Barred !!!!!"

   Come down on Saturday the 18th & watch me sort these two out, it'll be worth three quid (lol)

  Take care Everybody, see you all soon, Woody  :rolleyes:

Quite a few from Chesterfield will be making the journey. Be great to see the old place again.  Well done Mr G and Woody, resurrecting a sleeping giant back in God County. Will be great to see Roger behind the Decks as well, see him around but not seen him playing for a while. 

So, Saturday it is then, see you guys there XX

Can't wait now, be good to see some of the regulars I've not seen for a while and some new faces as well, 

bumped into a few mates yesterday who said they are coming and a disappointed Big Ron who goes on holiday tomorrow and is gutted he's missing it, I won't miss his hugging and kissing though.     :D    :lol:    :thumbup:

I've not sorted out a playlist as such for tomorrow night but i'll have enough viny with me to cover any eventually, just hope i can find a parking spot for the Transit.

Hiya Dave and Sue,

See you shortly for a reunion or the Civic, Robin crew...lol. Wouldn't have missed your first night at the Pocket for the world pal.

There's a bit off a buzz going round, so I just hope there's a little bit of space left for me on the dancefloor.

Had a great night at The Corner Pocket last night.  Even her indoors had a blast !!  Mr G hit the Spot when we got there playing his usual blend of underplayed 'classics' if that's not an oxymoron !  Russ on next and had a them on the Dance Floor with a few more contemporary tracks.  Main event, Mr Roger Banks - OMG - fantastic.  It was like we had been transported back 40 years. Too many to mention, everyone better than the last.  Will be keeping an eye on Soul Source to see where he is at again.  Thanks Roger, possibly the best set I have heard all year XX.  Woody finished us off with some big tunes that again had the floor moving.  A fabulous night at a fabulous venue run by fabulous guys - all in all - FABULOUS !!!!  That's the 3rd Saturday sorted out then.

Hi Tezza,

I'm sure i speak on behalf of all the fellas that we too had a great night and your more than kind comments really mean a lot to us all but more importantly you and your wife had a great time and of course that's the most important thing to us all that you both enjoyed yourselves and look forward to seeing you both at the next one.

For anyone who hasn't been to the "Corner Pocket" i can say it's a great venue with very reasonable (cheap) bar prices a large and talc friendly dance floor and of course "a fine selection of DJ's" (but i would say that i'm back on next month!) who are request driven "If we have it we'll play it" and as mentioned to myself more than once "and not so loud that you're going to be deaf for the next two days!"

I must say how very impressed i was with the numbers who attened the first night and the feed back from it, rest assured if Saturday was anything to go by this event will soon be an absolute packer.

And i must give a special mention to Jarvo and Angie who were there to support me, i thank you both and of course to everyone else who came and made the night such a success, looking forward to doing it all again next month.

Till then go steady

Hello again Everybody,

    What can I say about this months Soul Night at The Corner Pocket Mexborough, in a word "Awesome" :thumbup: . Brill turnout, got the old atmosphere back, our Guest DJ's Rodger & Russ certainly did the business, played a superb spot, nice one Guy's  :hatsoff2:  Me & Derek had a ball behind the decks too . The number of people who came up to me & said "great to have a Soul Night back at the Pocket where it belongs", unreal. As well as our local following people travelled from far & wide, massive thanks to you all for your fantastic support & for all the great posts & positive feedback :thumbup: . Special thanks to the Ladies on the door, Danielle, Jackie & Miss T. Also a big thankyou to Gary & Mark, for the flyering & sharing on F/Book, nice one Fellers :thumbup: . Also a quick mention to "Ado" for the "Nod", his help with the sound, keeping his finger on the pulse & all round input, Top Bloke.
Roll on next month when we're joined by  Special Guest DJ the brilliant Mr Paul Newton (Sheffield).

   Next month it's Saturday the 22nd of November (4th Saturday), this is just a one off, after next month we're back to our normal 3rd Saturday.

   See you all out & about soon Folks, Derek, Woody & Miss T

  :thumbsup::hatsoff2::wave:
