Poor you Kev, I'm gutted too, but then it's sunny and quite warm here so that's some consolation.  Hope to make one before the anniversary though, I miss the place like crazy.

Wow!!! What a night down in the 100 Club. I don't think I've ever seen as many people there as this one, seemed like there were more than at an anniversary night. I don't know if it's the Northern Soul movie or the Shredded Wheat advert on TV but there were loads of younger people there last night. It seemed as if every time I looked up the stairs there were more coming down and queuing to deposit their coats.

 

I hadn't been out anywhere soulwise since the NYE allnighter and was feeling withdrawal symptoms, it's okay playing music at home but it's not the same as in a proper club with a crowd present.

 

Unusually I got up there before the start at 11 as I was meeting some friends in the Blue Posts, had a drink and got into the club just past the starting time. And it rapidly began to fill up with Ady doing the business on the decks, followed by Joel who played quite a few oldies in his first set.

 

Butch followed and played some of his big tunes including Salvation, Shake Cheri, Chuck Jackson cover up and others plus some that were new to me, including a nice medium tempo one about two thirds through his first set. I danced to most of the set but the dance floor was jammed and I was only able to shuffle around.

 

Next on was the first guest Liam Quinn who has been a guest before. I didn't recognise that many of his records, and it was the same with the guest who followed him, Azza Adams. Both guests kept the floor busy, in fact it was busy all night.

 

Ady back next playing some of his current biggies including Nancy Wilcox, Etta James, etc, and his new discovery by the Mighty Whites, pretty good I thought and so did the dancers.

 

Time for Joel's second set, and one his best in my opinion, a real mix.

 

Butch again, quite a bit of 70s included plus favourites like the Perfections' Just Can't Leave You and Man Of My Word.

 

Liam and Azza followed respectively, including some better known tunes (or at least to me) such as You Don't Know Boy by the Attractions. Azza finished with Jerry Butler's One Night Affair.

 

At about 5.25 Ady opened his final set with another cheapie, Eddie Floyd's version of Bring It On Home To Me, which I haven't heard since its issue back in the 60s, He continued with a mix of tempos including Sweet Temptation, Don't Bring Me Down, It's Better by Sharon Scott, about to be issued on 45 for the first time by Kent on Monday, Gamblers Blues, When The Boy That You Love and ending the night with Barbara Lynn's This Is The Thanks I Get, Carla Thomas's perennial I'll Never Stop Loving You and the Four Tops' Baby I Need Your Loving. Then the lights came on, That's What Mama Say by Walter Jackson started and it was time to say farewell to friends and head home.

 

It was good to see the usual gang there, too numerous to mention, but stalwarts all of you. But where was Trickster? While people did begin to slip away from about 3 am there was a good crowd at the finish, and it looks good for the future of the nighter, especially if some of the new younger visitors become regulars.

 

My only criticism of the night is nothing to do with Ady but the people who spilt drink on the dance floor. On two occasions Suzy asked people to take their drinks off the dance floor, and there were others. The floor became very slippery where drink had been spilt, both Billy and Phyllis got mops out and cleaned the floor, this shouldn't have to happen. Ady made a request for no drinks on the dance floor, there used to be signs about this, perhaps time to reinstate them.

 

I had to make a quick getaway as I needed to get a certain train, I've got a busy day ahead unexpectedly.

 

As usual thanks to Ady and the DJs for their sterling work. And to the attendees who made the night what it was.

well , it was a completely unpredicable nighter....

 

Got there for 22.45 and thought this is gonna be a quiet night as the place was scarce of soulies and there was plenty of open space around the floor.

I didn't hear or feel the earthquake but at some point Oxford street must have tilted up and crowds of young enthusiastic people fell into the allnighter, the house was buzzing!!

Reminded me of the 80ts era allnighters down there.

The music was fresh and kept everybody guessing as to what was going to be played next...

Nice to see Mr Dobson at the other end of the venue for a change.

Despite any small negatives i really enjoyed the nighter and it seemed that what ever was played just fuelled the dancers and the atmosphere.

What a great future the 6ts Club has from last nights turnout.

 

From one happy Soul  !!!

Thought Azza and Liam both sounded brilliant down there - Azz played Bernetia Miller which sounded great in particular, and Little Ron Johnson (I think from Liam) also worked brilliantly. Butch on form as always, the Royal Robins flip sounds better out each time I hear it, such a good 60's soul track.

 

Great thing about the 100 Club is an oldies set works as well next to a set full of new, upfront and current funky sounds and the place appreciates both in equal measure. Top work Ady.

 

Only thing for me is I'd love to see the record bar back in full swing - it was only Nick down there this time...

I'd just like to say a very heart felt thank you to Ady, Butch, Joel and Matt for being top hosts and to everyone for there kind words and dancers of course who seemed to love the tunes... I really enjoyed the sets and it was great to be able to play such a cross section of soul to an appreciative and open minded crowd. Great to see so many old friends, Billy, Ollie, the Norwich crew, Tomas, Pogo and new friends of course! It really is one of those special clubs that captures everything that a Soul Club should have.. Much love to you all and hopefully see you all at the next one :) just clocked Pat Bleasdale is guest dj'ing!! she played Kosmonaut Soul Club in Manchester a few months ago and her sets were nothing short of incredible!!...

 

In Soul

What a fantastic night! Brilliant atmosphere. Enjoyed both Azza & Liam's sets. Joel on top form too. Nice to hear Eddie Parker's Body Chains getting a spin. Butch and Ady didn't disappoint either. I was rarely off the dance floor which did become a bit of an ice rink due to the amount of spilt beer along the back wall. At a fiver a pint, I rarely spill a drop! Don't understand why some of the newbies feel obliged to dance in largish groups and some " couple dancing " ( Ceroc style is it ? ) taking up too much dance floor space. One geezer was stood in the middle reading messages on his phone ffs. Guess it's the price we pay if we want younger clubbers down there for the future. Not really a rant as it was still a very special night of quality soul music. Cheers Ady and all those involved.
