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

another fabulous night on the horizon and all in time for the christmas build up, plenty of decor up for this one and two buzzin rooms to make the season's festivities go with a  bang. great to have COLIN spinning the tunes from both ends of the spectrum and after last october's response, pretty much sure, it's safe to say get here early to get you seats and place on the dancefloor...and a parking space....full last time!

Colin has just announced his late 2014 - 2015 dates and Lowton is featuring with a retrospective of some of the music he has championed on the UK soul scene over the years from the Torch thru the Mecca years and beyond.

a little over 2 weeks to go now, and it's building up to be another great night in lancashire at LOWTON CIVIC HALL....quality red rose soul is on the menu in both rooms with the main ball room hosting a dynamite night of those classic memories and those rare-as-hens-teeth tunes that make the music what it is and the venue where it is, UNMISSABLE!...the LOVESOULMUSIC review is gonna be giving it large in the "LOUNGERS" room...70's & 80's creme de xover with a breath-of-fresh-air TODAY'S BEATS thrown in....m.c. COLIN CURTIS, presides over two fabulous sets of MECCA tunes from both sides of the tracks along with our usual suspects ROGER, STEVE & ANDY and in the main room with BOB HINSLEY, BAZ MALEADY, KEV MURPHY & DEAN MITCHELL.....GREAT DJ'S - A KALEIDOSCOPIC SESSION OF MUSIC - TWO GET-ON-THE-4'S DANCE FLOORS...AND.....HEY!...IT'S  CHRISSSSSSSSSSTMAAAAAAAASSSSSSS!!

not sure why this event has 2 event guide entries as we do have a long running policy of 1 guide entry per event - no matter how many or what the rooms are

 

am taking the extra event added as a error and so have removed the other one

 

cheers

7 DAYS ARE TOO LONG?.....NO WORRIES!,....we're champin' at the bit to get it on, but we know the music is never gonna be in doubt...it's just gonna be so impressive across both rooms and it dosn't matter which room it is, the ambience and atmosphere is gonna be large and full on and some great decor to match...two spuerb dance floors that are gonna be rockin' from start to finish...for the soulful 70's& 80's funksters and steppers, it's get on your most outrageous get down gear and let's see a few afro wigs in attendance and make this the most vibetastic session this december...sure the dimension is gonna be stepped up with the LOVESOULMUSIC mix masters in full effect.

great line-ups as we keep sayin....and no doubt the main room is ready for an electrical northern soul charge of dynamite proportions, including the blackpool mecca - highland ballroom tribute with COLIN, yer main man, plus of course, all the relevant oldies from across the venues and generations as well as those latest up and coming rarities and brilliant semi-known gems on the reactivation.

no claus......just santa with a sackful of soulful goodies..on the 4's or by the 2's.......THAT'S THE WAY WE DO IT...AT LOWTON! :thumbsup:

not too many sleeps to get over now.. :thumbup: and nothing better to shake off the winter chill that a red hot venue.......be assured the heating won't be needed,..it's all gonna be happening with music to make anyone work up a sweat.....gonna be soulful, funky and right on the money, two great rooms providing the right atmosphere. just a reminder to anyone thinking of bringing sales boxes, we have plenty of room in the foyer to set up so look forward to seeing you there. there's a late bar of course with good cheap prices!. naturally, we hope to see many familiar faces but always welcome new people looking for something different, which is what we always promise...so, get ready for friday at LOWTON CIVIC HALL...we're gonna light up christmas!! :hatsoff2:

It's not Xmas yet. It's this Friday!

It's not at the North pole, it's at Lowton!

its not on the 25th, it's on the 12th!

gifts aren't wrapped with bows, their wrapped round your ears!

 

Outside its cold, inside will be hot.

With smiling faces and plenty of chat.

Plenty of dancing, music and beer. 

You won't have to wait 12 months for another-just February next year!

 

LoveSoulMusic@Lowton. It's not just for Xmas, it's for life!

Looking forward to Friday, spoke to Mr Curtis on Sunday and he's well up for spinning a few of the tunes he has had the pleasure of championing over the years.

 

In fact later I'm going to post up links to some of the showcases Colin has put together from the Highland Room....watch this space!

yes, plenty of gossip and positive attitudes, putting up regular selections of possible things to play helps as well, especially in the modern room...lots of food for thought there! :thumbsup:.......main room should be a good and varied mix as well, with an emphasis on the hard to find, rare & underplayed and any real deal oldies that still have good mileage left in them...not hard at all to put together intuitive sets!....last call for where we are situated and other details:

 

LOWTON CIVIC HALL is in HESKETH MEADOW LANE, 2 mins from A580 east lancs road & close to M6 & M62 junctions. postcode for satnavs is: WA3 2AH. anyone considering a stopover for this event: please note there are both PREMIER INN & TRAVELODGE facilities close by, the latter of which also has a TOBY INNS carvery onsite. check online for discounts and current room availability.

My my, it has been busy on here!

 Lots of people carry a great deal of affection for the Lowton of old. The re-invigorated new Lowton hasn't taken long to re establish itself on the north west soul scene, and we're starting to see travellers from further afield creeping out of the woodwork.

Familarity can breed contempt but Baz has put a huge amount of time and effort into a venue he loves. He's a soulie through and through. He loves the music just like we all do. That matters to me and I'm sure matters to all of you.

Personally I'll be having the time of my life this Friday. Just like all the dj's I have too many great records I want to play and not enough time to play them. But we'll survive. So come and watch us squirm, and while you're at it-have a dance, talk to your mates, buy some records and drink some beer:-)

Really looking forward to the third Lowton since its resurrection in August, particularly the 'Love Music Review' back room. Played the back room virtually every other month from the mid 90's to the early noughties with some great memories. As in August & October, we are taking a step back to the original vibe of the back room to the day when Crossover was king and 70's/80's Soul was the order of the day. Like I said............REALLY looking forward to playing a few tunes with Roger Williams, Andy Love........................AND a 'proper' LAST HOUR AT THE MECCA set from the one and only COLIN CURTIS

Colin will also be gracing the MAIN ROOM along with Baz Maleady, Bob Hinsley, Kev Murphy & Dean Mitchell, dishing out the 60's, Motown & MONSTER Northern Soul tunes!

 

So, what's not to like?

 

See you there :-)

what a great turnout last night!,..a huge thankyou to all of you wonderful people for making it as special as it always is...this year, we even got the christmas decorations & tree, which for some inexplicable reason, were absent last year :g: even, had a bit if a rush on to get the lounge room looking the business but well worth it in the end. the music speaks for itself..both rooms very busy and plenty of people up for it on the dance floor...and again, yet more new faces, who cannot have failed to have gone away happy with what they heard and witnessed.

 

COLIN did a fantastic job, delivering two very professional and explanatory sets on both rooms and got the ovation he deserved, still a truly amazing dj, whose enthusiasm never waivers after almost 50 years on the scene.

 

a big thanks as well to BAZ, BOB, KEV, DEAN, ANDY, ROGER & STEVE, our resident teams for their outstanding contribution, not just for last night

but for all the effort they have put in, during the course of 2014....i'm sure we will all be looking forward to the anniversary in february with renewed optimism and more great music to put on show, as LOWTON moves onwards and upwards as one of the best soul nights out in lancashire.

just left for me to wish everyone a fantastic christmas and a soulful new year,...see you all in 2015!! :thumbsup:  :hatsoff2:
