BANBURY SC- LEON BROWN and BILLY WHIZZ Details

?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>



Hi everyone and welcome to the next Banbury Soul Club event of 2015.

Saturday 2nd May 2015 - 8pm to 1 am

PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE OF VENUE

The Trades & Labour Club
32 West Bar Street
Banbury
Oxfordshire
OX16 9RR

Pay on the door is still only £5.00.

And onto our third event at our new home.
For those that haven’t been here yet a reminder of the advantages of this new location.
Free car parking right next door, realistic bar at Labour Club prices and most importantly it has a wooden dance floor with a raised stage and the acoustics are brilliant.
Another plus is it’s all on ground floor level with no stairs to contend with.

Below are a couple of comments from visitors who attended our March event.
Guys, first time for us at Banbury, really enjoyed it. Great spots from all DJ's, nice friendly atmosphere, really well attended & a brilliant venue .Raised stage, bar at the back of the room with a massive wooden dance floor in between, loads of seating, hey & the bar price's were extremely cheap .We shall return, thanks for great night"

“First post I have made to SS in a while..but wanted to echo what Woody said. We really enjoyed our night at Banbury. We try to get out as much as we can and been meaning to call in here for a long time. What a great crowd, great sounds and very busy dancefloor - loved it!
Can't say for sure when we will be able to be back...but we will be! “

Anyway onto the night itself.

As usual we continue with our policy of at least two guest DJ's, which helps keep the music fresh and exciting.
We are very pleased to welcome our two guests for the evening, Leon Brown and Billy Whizz.

Billy Whizz is often referred too as Northern Soul Royalty.
He is probably better known for his dancing skills but Billy has always collected vinyl.
His DJ experience includes the iconic 100 club, the original Skegness Weekender, Too Darn Soulful at Brighton and Norwich Backstreet Soul Club.
So an impressive pedigree it has to be said.

And what can I say about Leon Brown.
Another lifelong scene stalwart.
Leon has been collecting for many years and his DJ experience is impeccable.
He has played out extensively in the UK at events including the Radcliffe All Niter, The Manchester Ritz ballroom, Gloucester All niter and Brighouse.
And with running a weekly radio show (Talcum Power Soul) on Gloucester FM his knowledge is also extensive.
Tune in here on a Wednesday evening, 7pm – 9pm, to listen to the show.
http://www.gloucesterfm.com/

So I’m sure our two guests will complement each other with their soul selections.

In summary this will genuinely be a “something for everyone” evening.
So make sure you come along and enjoy a superb soulful night’s entertainment for only £5.
The guest DJ’s will be supported by the Club residents, all long term collectors.
Charlie, Steve and Tom playing their own choices of danceable soul music to guarantee a brilliant night.

Anyway we all hope to see you all on Saturday 7th March 2015.

Admission is just £5.

Hi Folks,

 

Be sure not to miss this, our last BSC before our summer break. 

 

Two great DJ's yet again - Leon Brown and Billy Whizz.  Two well known characters from our scene, both of course with outstanding record collections, which you will be hearing on the night.  Leon has been our guest before at Banbury, a few years ago, so looking forward to welcoming him back.    Billy Whizz, normally doing his spins on the dance floor, but this time he will be spinning behind the decks! 

 

Always a great atmosphere at Banbury, so hope to see old and new friends.

 

Keep it Soulful, keep it danceable....

Billy has some great tunes and knows how to work the floor, what a great addition to your already impressive DJ line up.

I wonder if Billy will play this one for you

Living Color - Gotta Strange Feeling - Madhatter

Would have loved to have been there to support my great mate Billy but unfortunately I have an appointment at Headingley to keep.

Have a great night everyone

Got some new stuff to try out again, all good

it's all looking good for Saturday, 

you can catch up with us on pure rhythm radio on Tuesday at 8:00 with Nick (topsey) Turvey

so until then take care and see you Saturday

Listen here everyone - last night was a cracker.

BillyWhizz spun his stuff - awesome.   George Blackwell, Herb Ward: yep my kinda music.

Continued to keep 'um dancing after big $teve Mils had filled the dancefloor with his set.

Such a nice guy Billy and had travelled for 3.5 hrs to reach us.  That is commitment that most Peeps these days just would not commit to.   Looking forward to catching up with you Billy@ Clee 2015 in June.     There's a few of us Banbury Crew there.

Leon up next with a non-stop dance set that worked so well. Good "mic" presence has Leon

and knows how to work the Crowd.  Shame about the Man Utd score on the day tho - just knocked the edge off it for him me thinks !

Charlie and Gilko on for the last hour.  They know what is expected and delivered it with class.

Few anthems, one or two Banbury "faves" and the odd request.   A formula that never fails.

Well done everyone for a really great Soul Nite.

I'll leave someone else to comment on my first hour warm up slot - did me best all.

 

We are off for our Summer Hols now - back on Sat September 5th with special guest DJ Mick H.

 

Cheers......................              Tom

As Tab's said, Tom's summed it up really with his post. We as a Club would just like to thank everybody who turned up and supported us again.

Also, like to add my thanks to Leon and Billy, our Guest DJ's, for gracing our decks at Banbury. Great tunes boys. Thank you very much...

Looking forward to the summer break now. Hope to see some of you folks, out and about. See you all in September. When our Guest DJ will be Mick H.

Once again thanks very much to all those that attended.

Keep it Soulful, keep it danceable.
