Skegness R-nB Weekend Details

The Skegness weekend now booked for Fri / Sat / Sun 10th through 12th April 2015.

The weekend is being held in the downstairs room , This is a ticket only event and is limited to 120 tickets priced at £15.00 for the whole weekend .This is entry to the event and does not include room or meals.There are a few sales tables left but need to be booked first.

The event is being run by dancing soul records and tickets will be available in the new year, payment by paypal is preferred .

This is not a weekender as is normally expected but more a small , cosy weekend of R-n- B . Please note this is a non northern soul event and non will be played .

In the tradition of such events as No More Doggin' ,Upstairs at the Tavern Ashby and The Spa R-n-B nights we will be playing traditional R-n-B , ska , reggae some light jazz and big city soul.

Friday evening should run from eight until two.

Saturday afternoon will be ladies day , This is when the ladies play their records and proved very popular at Dave Raistick's Skegness weekenders .

Saturday night will run eight until two .

Sunday will be all day and run into the evening.

I'm waiting for comformation from the DJ's but we have MACE as guest on Saturday and a right gang of top R-n-Bers , all to be confirmed just after Christmas.

Please free to ask for any further information.

Welcome to the Skegness R-nB Weekend Comments sectiom

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

hi all just a quickie about the oncoming storm.Firstly I asked Dave Raistrick if he minded me doing this event and had his blessing as Dave runs events in Skegness and didn't want to go behind his back . It is a small event and not for the feint heated as it is an alternative to the northern soul event's up and down the country and to be fare wouldn't be worth putting on a biggie.I chose April 10th weekend as it doesn't appear to encroach on other weekends or R-n-B events.The event is being run in the small downstairs room with plenty of seating and a great dance floor , it's own bar which is being stocked with Doom bar which proved essential during the Spa nights. There's been no special deal with the hotel regarding rooms but if you contact Russel there and ask mention you're coming to the weekend there may be a special rate. dog owners please note that the Grosvener is dog friendly , I think there's an extra charge of a tenner or something .So after Christmas I'll be giving full details including DJ's ect and final exact times ect.In the mean time have a great Christmas and mind banging new year , best regards , Simon.

By the way I'm away travelling tomorrow onwards so won't be able to access a computer , I'm Djing Friday and Saturday and then flying to Amsterdam to pick up a collection so there'll be no contact until the new year.

One more little thing the management have respectively asked that all firearms , jin traps and moonshine be left at the door !!!

hi all , well Christmas has now been and gone and time for an up date . The tickets should be ready for next week and we've already have some reserved . We'll have some with us at events in the coming months if anyone needs any, let me know either by pming me on here or give me a bell on the number on the flyer. Please don't phone on week days as I could be driving so evenings and weekends is fine. We also have Lorna playing some vinyl on the Saturday ladies day special. Best regards , Simon.

Hi all just a quickie , I've just noticed that the phone number on the flyer is for the Hotel , they don't have tickets so a phone number for evenings and weekends only is 07920109381 to reserve , sorry about that.

Hi Rob and Lynn hope your both ok , yes Rob that sounds great. It's awkward selecting dj's and you can upset friends and others by not asking them. This is the nature of thing's as you must have the same problem at Select soul. If this weekend goes as planned and the hotel is happy we will do another and of course include people like your good self and others who are not on this time, will be asked for the next one.If it doesn't go to plan then I shall go back to my original plan of being an edible snail farmer , best regards old chum , Simon.

hi all just a quick up date , the tickets are ready for Friday and the folk who have already paid will get them posted either Saturday or Monday depending on the snow situation. We have a lot reserved already so it's all systems go.

Before ordering tickets bare in mind that this weekend is 90 % r-n-b  with a little ska , reggae , latin and popcorn. Saturday night we have Debbie and Mark Wilson doing a full hour of Ska/ rock steady sounds that they have become very popular of late in the alternative rooms . They blew everyone away with there much talked about spot at the last Blackpool weekender. The other dj's may play the odd Jamaican thing in their spots but this is not a weekend of reggae and ska . Just thought I'd point that out if anyone's expecting a weekend of reggae as I've been asked about it. Any info ect you can pm on here or phone me in the evenings / weekends only as I don't use a phone in the day all the best .S.

Russell from the Grosvenor has phoned me today to say that the hotel is nearly fully booked for this event , so if you need a room there I'd jump on it quickly. Obviously this doesn't mean the tickets are nearly all sold , just the rooms at the hotel. Regards , Sharmo.

Hi all just a quick update , we're now approaching the half way line on the ticket sales which was a bit of a shock . So just over half are left if you need any pm me on soul source or contact me on the number on the flyer , I will have some at lifeline so you can pick them up then. Roger Banks has sadly had to drop out as he has a double booking. Best regards Sharmo.

hi all was at the Grosvenor hotel last weekend the room's looking great and now we're into the final few weeks of finishing preparations ready for the weekend . There are two or three rooms left at the Grosvenor so if your thinking about stopping on site give Russell at phone. Tickets are still available just pm me on here or phone my original number on the flyer see above. This number is now back in use . Best regards as always Carl Fortnum ( private joke )

Hi all a few folk have asked whether they can pay on the door for the Saturday night , I've asked Russell the owner of the Grosvenor and he said no problem . so if you want Saturday night only it's available . I think the hotel is now fully booked there maybe one or two left but I think it's now about full. Plenty of b & b's in the area and we still have some tickets for the weekend if needed , you can reserve using the above number on the flyer pay by paypal but if paying by cheque please be quick to allow for clearance. I'll have some at Nuneaton Coop on Friday and also at Soldiers and Sailors on Sunday. You can pm me on soul source ,or phone /text me on 07920 109381 I don't answer on week days as I'm driving . Many thanks Simon.

Hi all well the weather looks great for Skegness this weekend. Anyone wanting tickets please let me know although you'll have to pick them up on the door now as time's ran out with the post. Friday and Saturday night you can pay on the door for the evening sessions but the tickets cover the whole weekend.  Tomorrow I'll have all the times for the dj;s as I'm waiting for a couple to tell me what time they're landing and what times will suit them best regards ,Simon and the Spa collective.

well what can I say I had a fantastic weekend meeting up with old friends and made so many  new ones. Thank you so much to Simon And Paula for inviting me over to play a few of my much loved records I had a ball. Also thank you for looking after me and your very interesting company. So many records played out over the weekend and only a couple duplicated and many new ones to add to the list ha, hope Paula feels better soon, look forward to seeing you all again.

Had a great time, downstairs function room was perfect for this type of event.....a healthy turnout for first one making a solid foundation for future events....talk of another next year, maybe even in 6 months.......gonna make a nice addition the the events calendar either way!

 

Many thanks to Simon and Paula for the invite to play some 45s, and to everybody who helped out or made the effort to support this weekender.

 

:thumbsup:

Hi all well just detoxing now with a bottle of beer and a smoke. Firstly a big thank you to all that attended this weekend , the DJ's did the biz and kept the floor friendly music flowing . I'm very greatful to you all , after listening to everyone I've taken in all ideas that were mentioned and will be tweaking the knobs to make our second one even better. If all goes to plan the second one will be the second weekend in November , I just need to see if hideaway is on that weekend so we won't clash. Many , many , thanks to all of you , regards Spa collective,

Well what can I say I always wonderd what people ment when they said the phrase a fish out of water lol well this weekend I found out what it ment I was absolutely blown away by the music it was mind blowing and could not believe the quality of the music don't want to mention djs individually because all were fantastic and an honour to warm up the first hour for them.

A little late getting there with hold ups on A1 and chuffing sat nav packing in but we finally got there about 5ish Saturday night but it was well worth waiting for the room in the grovnor was spotless and the staff could not do enough for you breakfast first class very fair bar prices and like Mace said earlier the room was perfect for this type of weekender. It was also nice to meet new people who I hope we will see again that were more than willing to share their knowledge of RnB with you and Mandy picked up 5 new sounds to add to her collection lol.To way up the weekend Music1010 Venue 1010 Atmosphere 1010 the people 10010 can not wait for the next one and thanks to Simon and Paula for letting me have my chance to play out with the big Boys and Girls of the RnB scene take care and keep doing what your doing its working ATB Yocky and Mandy

A big thank you To Simon And Paula for asking us to DJ at the weekender, we really enjoyed the whole weekend.   Playing Reggae and Ska at what was predominately a weekend of R&B was always going to be a genre of music that you either love or hate, from the comments we received I think the majority of those who attended enjoyed listening and dancing to something a little bit different Mark & Debbie
