DJ’s and* LIVE ON STAGE FROM DETROIT USA....PAT LEWIS*.

*****************************************************************************************************************************************************************************event-10495-0-36132200-1420354388_thumb.

Every year since it's' inception The CO72 Reunion is an annual get together of like minded souls to celebrate the music, the clubs and the era that provided the backdrop (pun intended) to their formative years, with the sole (again pun intended) aim of raising money for charity.

No sooner had we seen that the assembled CO72 pupils had awarded

The 2014 Reunion another gold star, we started planning for October 2015;

But more to the point, we were not just planning the routine details (if

Anything can be called routine when aligned to the CO72 ethos), of how we can "up" this year's total raised for charity,

Just as important we discussed what we could give "back" to those loyal patrons who kindly, and more to the point, who

Unquestionably help us raise incredible amounts of money for our nominated charity’s. each and EVERY year

A FANTASTIC ACHIEVEMENT THAT DESERVES RECOGNITION

SO............Several ideas were considered as a "thank you" to our loyal classmates

one was take our revellers on an all-inclusive weekend to a naturist colony in Filey (requests for this will be taken on the day!)

* the other was give our supporters a function that would SURPASS all previous C072 functions.*

After much deliberation, it was decided that on October 17th 2015 at our now favoured home of Lea Hall Miners Welfare in Rugeley (queue a fanfare of trumpets and a cascade of drum rolls)

We are to thank the CO72 - old and new - patrons with, not only the usual splendid feast of recorded music

BUT also, a SPECIAL and EXCLUSIVE live performance from the Detroit Chanteuse

that is the wonderful PAT LEWIS !

This isn't just ANOTHER 'Torch Reunion' or (..insert a club of your choice) Reunion, whether it be Cats , Junction, Mecca etc etc etc.

 

It has evolved over the past 7 'FANTASTIC' years into an annual get together of like minded souls to celebrate the MUSIC, the CLUBS and the ERA....

.....that provided the backdrop (pun intended) to their formative years, with the sole (again pun intended) aim of raising money for charity.

WE THANK YOU KINDLY !!

 Of all the events in the Diary  .... CO72 makes the hairs on my neck tingle at its mention    not because its a Go To Event . ...  Not Just Because I see friends of my youth ..... It is Mainly  Because 1972 was MY TIME !!          

This year I feel honoured to have been asked to play a spot  ..   Many Thanks to  Malc , Paul and Jez  for asking me to stand in for my old Mate...   Ian Cunliffe who has had to regrettably withdraw for personal reasons ..

Regards and Respect ...  Brent

Reflecting on the lads comments above......CO72 REALLY is an event ,that there is a 'buzz' building as we enter the last few days running up to it. Don't know what it is...BUT the fact that friends and 'classmates' both old and new get together ...once a year...to celebrate the ERA.....and raise £1000's for charity.....definitely gets the juices flowing !

 

Its ALWAYS a pleasure to spend the day with you all......

CLASS OF 72 REUNION THIS SAT...I have the last few remaining ticket/wristbands. Malc and Jez have sold out. If you want to guarantee entrance contact me now. What remain unsold will be put on the door, however we suspect they may go quickly due to the limited amount left. If you intend to travel without a ticket and are considering arriving after 6, I hope you will not be offended when the two security guys downstairs on the doors politely advise "sorry no entrance its SOLD OUT"

43 years ago I joined up with 2 DJ in a cellar bar in Hitchin (North Herts), before this I had been a patron of the Soho all night scene, & also made a few trips to the Twisted Wheel club in Manchester, I started playing Soul & Reggae in 1970, after spending a few months living in a HMDC for breaking in to Boots in Stevenage, although I had a great time as a SKINHEAD in 68/9 & going to Upton Park, that was nothing compared to what was to come, as one of the DJs was a true SOUL BROTHER, who was well known by the regulars at the Cats Torch & Blackpool Mecca, his name was Mick Smith, & along with Chris G I was able to become & meet the class of 72,

this Saturday the CO72 2015 will have a vine that no other event has, the TRUE SPIRIT of 72, I will be attending with my close friend SMOKY, both of us will be bringing the vibe with us so don't forget to say Hello, lets Party KTF Dave K

What a great day. Pat Lewis is one lurverly lady and a true professional artist. Yes she had problems with the mic but how she handled it was just superb. The guys did a fantastic job organising the event and long may they do so. We arrived at 3ish and had to leave after Pat had finished well knackered from all the dancing. CO72 Yeah!!!!

Hi All  Really pleased the event went well, however I can't believe that at 2pm while pissing about with the settings on a pre-amp in my record room, I suffered another hypo, I come around at 10.15, this was the second in a few days, can't believe  I have missed the event again, at this rate will I make CO72 2016??......I VERY MUCH HOPE SO.
