Matt told me at Filthy Soul that Saturday's guests are Ady Lupton and Steve Womble. I hope Steve will play Norman Connors' Take It To The Limit if possible. Last time he appeared there the night was curtailed at about 5.30, think it was a fire alarm or something.

Sorry Geoff, half term and Cleggy have delayed me but it does seem like Saturday will be supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Those are indeed the DJs and we'll try not and burn the sucker down this time for Steve.

:(  A spot of ill health forced me to abandon plans to attend my favourite niter.  Can't imagine that it was anything but excellent, and looking forward to Geoff's usual comprehensive review.

See you all at the next one.

Not sure this could be called comprehensive, it's just what I remember as I type it out.

 

It seemed a very long time since the last 6ts allnighter at the 100 Club but in fact it was only five weeks. Last night proved to be a packer, very busy with plenty of younger new faces, but it did begin to clear after 3am.

 

There were two guest DJs, Ady Lupton who did two sets, one at the start of the night and one at about 4.30ish, and Steve Woomble who did one set, about 3.45 I think, although to be honest I hardly looked at my watch all night.

 

Ady Croasdell had three of his regular stalwarts, Butch, Keith Money, Tomas McGrath, and himself of course.

 

Ady Lupton was doing his first set when I arrived at about 11.15, Keith took over after him and was followed by Butch doing an early set. He played some of his big tunes, Salvation, Mighty Lovers, Chuck Jackson c/u, Milton Wright, Frankie & The Daemons, Jax Transit Authority, Vessie Simmons c/u and others whose titles I don't know. Of course the dance floor was now very busy.

 

Tomas followed on and started with the Ringleaders. His set continued filling the floor, then Keith followed him.

 

Ady C took over next. He started off with Because Of My Heart and Stop Leave My Heart Alone, then he played some of his current Pied Piper and other rarities. He'll Be Leaving You and I Wanna Be Good To You kept me dancing. Among others he played were the Paramount Four and his new one the Mighty Whites, which has grown on me in the nicest possible way. He played a Holly Maxwell record whose title I didn't catch, perhaps he'd be kind enough to post on here with the information?

 

Butch then did his second set mixing the better known with the lesser known, or at least lesser known to me. He included Flashback and I Hurt On The Other Side and It's All Over (Baby). The floor had cleared a bit by then, and as usual became a little sticky.

 

Steve Woomble took over and started with Yes I'm In Love. He played a mix of Northern and Modern.

 

Keith then did his third set, a mix of some classics and some very nice medium tempo. He included one of my favourite beat ballads Little Anthony's It's Not The Same. That certainly revived my tired feet. As did Time Will Pass You By, still love that one.

 

About 5am Ady Lupton came on, started off with very uptempo records, My Prayer and Look Into My Heart for example but slowed it down a bit towards the end of his set with Fool Don't Laugh and Isn't It Just A Shame among others,

 

For the final thirty minutes it was Ady C as usual. Great to hear Kenny Carter's What's That On Your Finger. Then it was time for the last three tunes, I'll Never Stop Loving You, I Have No Choice and of course Baby I Need Your Loving. Lights on, Walter Jackson playing and time to gather one's self together and say farewell to friends and reflect on a most enjoyable night. I must have enjoyed it because I'd had to change my shirt, I got so hot.

 

As I said above quite a lot of newish people, some didn't know the etiquette of no drinks on the dance floor but when the bouncer pointed this out they willingly complied.

 

Good to see the usual collection of 100 Club reprobates there, perhaps like me you regard it as your second home, a place I always feel at ease in. Thanks to Ben for the slice of chocolate gateau, that was very nice as I was feeling a bit peckish, happy birthday to you.

 

And a big thanks to Ady, the DJs and the staff or the club. No doubt see many of you at Cleethorpes.

It was great to be back in the 100 club again after missing the last gig.  

 

The Blue Posts had a good crowd in for the traditional pre-drink and banter session.

Very nice to meet  Levanna ," lovely lady" and Andy (on the rock ) hope your back ok?

The smiling Rowena  took our money on the door while her Gary held the dance floor.  

 

Again a very young crowd dominated the nighter.

Great to meet Louisa for the first time in the club , a "Norfolk Soul flower" who now resides in the "Old Smoke" . 

 

Geoff ,  good summary , Do you make notes throughout the nighter ?

 

Kev (cloakroom) thanks for the records mate , Glad to see Bury st-Edmunds move  has brought you closer to Norwich !

 

Many thanks to     Ady & the "6ts Soul family"   for a great Allnighter that continues to tick all the boxes,          (  thats not a cover-up  Artist either ! )

 

regards    Frank & the Norwich Posse

Big thanks to Ady and Matty for the invite to play, Wends and me had a blast! And at least the fire alarm didn't go off this time!! :-)

 

(Geoff, sorry to not get round to Norman Connors, I had it pulled out to play after Heartaches and Pain but Ady P beat me to the left deck!! :-))

 

Honoured and humbled to play at the legendary 100 club.

 

Roll on Cleethorpes!!!

No problem Steve, hope you can include it on Sunday night in the Modern Room at Cleethorpes if possible, I know John Stubbs will be pleased to hear it as well as myself.

Thanks for your kind words Frank, much appreciated. I used to take notes at soul nights a few years ago but it was what tunes were played. Now I try to rely on my memory which is why I often ask Ady to remind me of the exact order of DJs. I've recently bought a new phone and so far can't work out where I can make notes on it, not texts to other people. My old one was far easier, idiot proof I guess.

Thanks as ever Geoff, you work harder than me!

 

The 'Three Strikes And Your Out' track may or may not be by Holly Maxwell, that's the name I'm using at the moment. It's a Trickster favourite I usually play early doors.

 

Like you I thoroughly enjoyed the night and thought it was a super crowd with a healthy injection of youth. Apologies to Steve and Ady for having shorter than usual sets; they were very understanding. Tomas has big exams starting today so he could only do an early spot and we shared the remaining time out. I owe Steve in particular.
