Hello Everybody,

  it's me again, can't tell you how much Me & Miss T are looking forward to "Tomorrow Night", gonna be "great". Looking forward to seeing "Micky", our paths have'nt crossed for ages now (both busy out promoting ect.....), so looking forward to hearing his spot, top Guy behind the decks who's built up an awesome collection over the last few years.

 Micks like us totaly A.T.B so I'm sure they'll be a few surprises in the "Old Magic Box" as well as the Club Classics, Seventies winners & Current spins.

   Don't forget, we kick off at 8:00pm (Bar while 12:30am), Room & Dancing while 1:00am.

   If your still feeling a bit wintery due to the change in the bloody weather again (up to just anyway), come down & see us on the "Tomorrow Night", we'll soon have you warmed up, bring your Dancing Shoes......  :hatsoff2::wave:

Hi Woody.

Yeah that's the one in my defence I seem to think I missheard the artist's name as Carol Walker and not her correct name of Carole Waller.....I even got the Spelling of her first name wrong, but now we've got that out of the way what's left is a great old school Northen Soul dancer, so here for everyone else who wasn't aware of the record here it is....enjoy!

And remember more classy sounds like this every month at The Corner Pocket.

Evening everyone.

From a very sunny and warm Steel City, even at this early stage there's great interest in this months event and we're getting some pretty long distance travlers attending....just shows you The Corner Pocket is doing something right.

So for a fantastic night of pure across the board Northern Soul, Motown and a touch of Rhythm'n'Blues (and just a record or two that might.be a little off centre) you know the place to be.

And of course the night is 100% dance floor driven.

Looking good, see you soon.

Great thread on here re Simon Soussan , am sure we have all got a "soul fox " record lurking somewhere in our boxes ( mines looking for you !! ) , wonder if he is still around
what a book that would make.

 

Yeah, know what mean Frank,

   bit of a rouge old Simon. By sound of it & all the stories I've heard over the years he had more fiddles going than "The London Philharmonic"  :lol:, bit dodgy to say the least..... :g:

Hi everyone,

 

Well we're not too far away now from what stands to be another top quality night of genuine "Across The Board" Northern Soul, Motown and R&B at Mexborough's Corner Pocket.

 

I think Tony A aka Ado has been drafted in on early deck duties for this month and really this fella is a very professional DJ with a great mike manner and is willing to go a little off the tried and tested musical path but is always purely dance floor focused..... JJ Callier "Pusher Man" perhaps?

 

This months special guest is Barnsley's very own Mick Glover aka "Mickey Two Dinners" and his reputation goes before him as a top soul spinner, so as we alway's say "remember to bring your dancing shoes, you're gonna need 'em"

 

Great interest already being shown, Woody's and Miss T's phones haven't stopped ringing all over the weekend so we're expecting a great turnout, so why not come along and give The Corner Pocket  a try and with a 100% dance floor driven music policy, cheap bar prices and warm atmosphere we're sure you'll have a great night.

So looking forward to seeing you there,

Hi Derek,

 

Talking of The Nicholas Bros, here's one of the (or perhaps the greatest) dance routines of all time just catch those flying splits... !!!WOW!!! so good in fact that dance legend Fred Astair once told the brothers that this dance number'

 

    "was the greatest movie musical sequence he had ever seen"

 

Sadly in later years the brothers paid a heavy price and suffered from severe joint related problems, no surprise there then.

 

So here from the 1943 Hollywood Movie "Stormy Weather" are the Nicholas Brothers, Cab Calloway, Bill Robinson, Swing Jive, dancing girls and Zoot Suits and of course a certain dance routine.

Here at The Corner Pocket you do get a little of everything and one or two record very "hot to trot" sounds as you might say and of course i'm going to state this again "the music policy here  is 100% dance floor driven "and believe me when this is vinyl based we're all carrying some pretty heavy record boxes around with us"....but you're worth it and please remember the better night you have the better night we have.

 

Almost there now and sure to be another cracker!

Evening Fellas,

 

Very retro giving play lists in advance (okay i know we're not doing a full run down) now correct me if i'm mistaken but that was a pretty wide spread DJ policy at some venues in the 70's to give a list of the sounds you were going to hear on the night?

Hi everyone,

Well we"re almost there come this time tomorrow it will be the last little bit of preperation before setting of for Mexborough and The Corner Pocket with a definate touch of Spring in the air (or even a shade of Summer) all is set once more for yet another fantastic night.

The rest of the team are as eager as myself to get behind the decks and spin some quality Soul and as Woody says from club classics, hot to trot new breaking tunes, forgotten gems and all manner of musical delights that come under the "Across The Board" heading but we promise you each and every record played will be geared for you and as we're sure you're well aware we're 100% dance floor driven and request friendly so the place to be most definitely is here.

And of course remember to bring ya dancing shoes, your gonna need 'em so see you all tomorrow.

Russ

Hi everyone.

All sorted (well almost there's always something you've forgotten to do) so it won't be long now till the door are open on this months event at The Corner Pocket, so if you still haven't decided where your going this evening might I say that if you want a great night of Soul music with a Northern Flavour, that has touches of Rhythm'n'Blues and a good helping of Motown look no further than here at The Corner Pocket, a great venue with a well deserved Soul pedigree, excellent bar prices warm and friendly crowd and as always a team that care about you and aim to give you the best night we can...

This months special guest DJ is Barnsley's very own Mick Glover aka "Mickey Two Dinners" a man who never fails to
deliver a 5 star performance.

So see you all later

On behalf of myself and all the team at The Corner Pocket my i take this opportunity to say a massive 219265a724be15b4f1453bda8d50002e_zpsccc9 to everyone who came to last nights event.

After a small last minute set back when Woody and Miss T realised at the eleventh hour they were both double booked at another event (to tell the truth it's not the first time i've got dates mixed up and i'm sure it won't be the last either!) but a quick change in the DJ times and we were sorted both myself and Derek doing a double shift. Woody and Miss T will both be back next month.

Tony "A" aka Ado set the ball rolling with a selection of past gems that so often today don't get the deck time they deserve and for future reference if you like to hear some very underplayed sounds that are to an impressive quality his warm up spot and each disc on original vinyl this is a must for fans of rare and underplayed and indeed is his main spots are to a similar level and always a little different to most....

Derek always a constant spot no matter what time of the night you hit the decks your personal blend of Motown dancers, old school favorties and a touch of British "blue eyed soul" never seems to fail to hit the mark and on a personal note a very easy fella to work with.

And onto the special guest DJ Mickey "Two Dinners" Glover who did a stunning spot and really did mix things up a little i don't think many sides of the Soul spectrum were left untouched and really a set that had something for everybody in it and played the hardest funky dancers i've heard in many a year or two if you like hardcore Northern pounding dancers check this guy out (fitness will be required) and a top bloke in the process!

So that's about it nice numbers in attendence and a busy (read packed dance floor) from pretty early in the night and the reputation as a dancers venue seems to be well deserved, just a couple more thank you's to the work of Jackie and Danielle (who was drafted in at a moments notice) on "meet 'em and greet 'em" door duties a sterling job girls.

And of course the most important mention is to each and everyone of you who supports this event and makes it the success that it is, once more from us all once again a huge thank you.

Russ
