What an enjoyable night. When you go somewhere and you can honestly say that you enjoyed every DJ's spot then it's got to be a good night. Last night was one of those nights. Added to that theres a warm friendly crowd and a nice venue with a really good dancefloor.

It would be wrong to say that it's all rare or underplayed music. If you like classic oldies theres plenty of them but with lots of interesting tracks mixed in. Which is just how it should be IMHO.

Thanks to Terry and Martin for inviting me to play some tunes and thanks to everyone who came and made it such a good night.

Playlist up later.

Struggling with a chest infection virus(NOT Contagious),but made the trip last night to show some support for these guys who put a hell of a lot of time and effort into putting out a great soul night.One of the few nights left with a bit of integrity doing things right and playing great records.Despite the pounding chest couldnt resist hitting the floor a few times the quality coming off the decks was so so good.

Well done guys top marks

Absolutely knew that Martin would ably step in and support Terry and the two of them would keep with the ethos that made the Shack the place to go to hear that something a little different from the norm - it will go from strength to strength I'm sure of that.  Kath on the door is a bonus - she is such a lovely person and has dealt with 'the door' ably at Inner Soul and will make sure that she gives everyone a warm welcome. Well done to the 3 of you - keep at it! ✌?️?

We had a great night here last night, one of the best . Loved all the djs spots, so great music all night. A good crowd in and lovely company too.So glad that Martin agreed to step in with Terry, the records he plays are right up our street! , and then , of course there's the lovely Kath on the door, with a little help from Jane!  So looking forward to next month.

It's no secret that Soul Shacks one of my top 3 venues and really pleased to be asked to get involved. Chris and Terry have a club that sticks with an old school music policy, with support from people who really do appreciate what they play.

Hopefully I can help to keep that going until later in the year when Chris comes back :)

Really pleased to have been asked to DJ at The Soul Shack.

We always enjoy the nights and the open minded music policy.

Hoping to match the quality of music that we have enjoyed on our previous visits.

See you Saturday.

Mark

This is a public health warning.......

The Soul Shack is a proper top quality northern soul night for lovers of 60's and 70's classic and forgotten oldies.

If there is anyone who wants to hear a night full of Motown and modern soul or stroke their chin in time with the beat, then maybe this is not the place for you and it could seriously affect your health :rofl:

For everyone else this is all set to be a seriously good night :D

Fab night ! 

People through the door before we had started the proceedings and still there when we closed the doors.  A massive thank you to all those that regularly attend The Shack and a welcome and thanks to all the new faces we saw last night.  Hope you enjoyed the night as much as we did.  Our special guest for the night, Mark Johnson, didn't let us down, a quality selection of tunes that seldom grace the decks these days and such a shame.  The Floor showed its appreciation all night and seldom had chance to rest. 

Doing it all again next month with Smudge as our SG so hopefully we will see you there XXXX

Loved it last night, great music, a full dance floor, couldn't really have wished for anything more.        

Guest DJ Mark Johnson was outstanding, playing some really big collectors items

It's great to be involved in such a quality night :thumbsup:
