Packed to the rafters, what a fantastic day.. Unbievable, when you think that everybody all around me is dining off the Wheel back and doing it for free!  It just shows what the people want a guaranteed QUALITY afternoon in a proper unique basement Club from the 60's.

A Big thanks to our guest Dj Mr Ginger Taylor who did to 2 Fantastic sets in both rooms, along with John Green & Jock Heron.

Like I say, no fancy tricks at the Wheel, we just do what it say on our flyers. Don't take my word on it, just ask the people who were there and have come to the Wheel in there 1000's over the last 16 years.

A Big thanks to you all.

Pete Roberts

Welcome to the TWISTED WHEEL CLUB @ ALTER EGO SUNDAY SOUL Comments sectiom

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

Our next Wheel date is 14th February Valentines Day !  With the Legendary Soul DJ Mr.Ginger Taylor playing a Whitworth St. Set in Room 1, and a Rare & Northern Set in Room 2.

Some people say that the Wheel only plays the same records! 

That's total Bollox's said by people who have never been, or who have a hidden agenda and by some who think they should have been asked to DJ at the Wheel, and would give their right arm to do so...

16 years of doing it wrong? ... I don't think so and I have never done Free Entry, Free CD's, Back Slapping or Blown Smoke.

  • The tunes at the wheel are great and I have to say, you never hear the same tune twice in the same sessions. So please don't be put off . this and the ritz is one of the best venues for let's say really northern  soulers old and young. K.T.F

Thank you.

Whats laughable to me, is the promoters on here who are bumping their own soul do's every 2 minutes. 

How old are we?

Some of the silly posts sound like a Beach Boys Record,


I wonder where they got  The Sunday Afternoon Soul Session Idea from? 

I have Never begged for trade, word of mouth is the best thing!

I rest my case.

A Big Thanks Mr & Mrs Smiley

How right you are, really looking forward to the Wheel tomorrow with our guest DJ Ginger Taylor, Gingers record collection must be worth £250,000 if not more.

So NO £10 pressings, Laptops or CD's played at the Twisted Wheel Club - and never have been.

See you all tomorrow.

Best Regards

Pete Roberts.
