Well that's it for this year folks but we will be back on Saturday 4th February 2017 with our charity event with all door proceeds going to Macmillan. 

A big thanks to all for your continued support from the likes and shares on Facebook to turning up on the night. Loads of lovely comments on the night and on Facebook so we must be doing something right! We played right across the board and the mix of known oldies, Motown classics right through to the rarities worked really well and kept the floor busy all night. Personal favourites were CL & The Pictures-Baby Not Now, The Neptunes-Girl That's An Awful a thing to Say, Ted Taylor-Somebody's Always Trying (Mark), Flowers-For Real, Alfie Davison-Love Is Serious Business, Village Choir-All Purpose Love (Nick) and Soul Bros Inc-Pyramid, Isonics-Sugar, Barbara Mason-You Better Stop It (Me) mixed in alongside the requests it was a great night. Fantastic atmosphere with a lovely crowd in as usual. Always nice to see the regulars and a few new faces.

We couldn't do it without you! Hope to see you all out and about and back at Altrincham next year!

Thanks folks!

Mike

What a great night and such a nice crowd, it was good to see quite a few young faces there, and on the dance floor. See you all at the next one.

Welcome to the Altrincham Soul Club-Northern Soul Night Comments sectiom

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

Our next event and last one of the year will soon be here so let's make it a cracker, the last few have been fantastic!

We are pleased to announce next years dates which are on our new business cards that you can pick up on the night or if you're out and about you may see them as we have put them down at several local events.

As always expect to hear across the board Northern Soul with plenty of Tamla Motown, Crossover & Modern on offer too. 

I will be playing some new additions like my all time favourite record Soul Bros Inc-Pyramid, can't wait!

See you there folks!

Only been to this venue once before with these guys driving the decks and it was a good night with quality vinyl being played, good PA system too. I attended regularly when Rosco Robbinson was running the helm here and they were great nights, he pulled ‘massive’ audiences. I think I will be turning up Saturday with friends to see some old faces. It’s a pity this is not a monthly venue.

Look forward to seeing you there, and thanks for the nice comments, we will be on every 2 months next year. I used to go to the Oakfield Club, it was a great club and remember a lot of top tunes being played there, shame it closed. We'll have to have a chat Saturday.

Cheers

Thanks for the comments Graham, we really appreciate them and the support! We try to get the balance right by playing across the board to try and cater for the oldies fans, modern fans, people who are new to the music and the connoisseurs if you know what I mean. I think it works!

We are looking forward to more regular dates next year as my Dad said. Hopefully this is better for everyone as we have had many people who have said they'd like it to be more frequent.

My Dad always speaks highly of The Oakfield, just a shame I was too young at the time to have been! Looking forward to Saturday! See you there :-) Make sure you say hello!

Cheers

Michael

Hi Mark, Michael. Yes those Oakfield days were very special because we started off what you could call “an idea” in Chequers night club next to Alty football ground in 1994 and prior to this Northern Soul was not heard in Sale or Altrincham since the demise of Sale’s Blue Rooms around 15 years prior. Paul Morgan who was at that time the manager of both Chequers and Check-Inn gave us our first opportunity/venue and forever grateful. Behind the decks were myself, Greg Osborne (Twisted Wheel attendee) and the late Malcom Owens (Blackpool Mecca) Malc was brought up in Blackpool. We then moved from a Thursday night in Chequers to a once a month Saturday night at the Oakfield Club in January 1996 where Les Hare owner of Kingbee records Chorlton joined us. Between us we had a fair old record collection. Les’s collection spoke for itself and still does, Malc and Gregs were awesome too. I was the poor party ;>)) myself and Malc were fortunate enough to visit the US every couple of months with our work so managed to bring back the odd nice tune from there. Around 2004 I ended up quitting the Oakfield and Northern scene altogether perusing other interests. The rest is history.

You guys are doing a great job at Altrincham Masonic and have a fantastic venue. I must say the same for Ian, Neil and Ken who run an equally successful and quality once a month venue at SOS Soul Club in Sale the end of Manor Avenue. See you both Saturday and I hope it’s a packer!!! Graham H.

Don't forget this is the last one for this year, but the good news is we have managed to get a more regular spot at this great venue next year, starting off with a charity soul night in aid of Macmillan cancer support on 4th February 2017.

Thanks to all who've attended and made it a success, and a big thanks to all those involved.

Mark.

Tonight's the night! The works on Clay Lane have finished just in time so no diversion now which is good news! 

I'd just like to also thank everybody for their continued support from turning up to the likes and shares on here and Facebook. We couldn't do it without you. 

To those who are coming, I hope you all have a fantastic night and be sure to say hello! 

See you all later

:-)

Dear Graham nice words yes remember Ellingtons with a smile I was on nights when you ran this back in the early 90s and rosco lived across the road I think without Paul Morgan we may never ever would have a soul scene in the area but for the love of his music  then it went to Saturday and the following week is where I met two now great friends Geoff and paul ( Mark I already knew) who I got involved with after the northern do and we played what these guys do at Altrincham soul club I've not managed to attend any events here even though I feel I've been involved in it i haven't my other commitments being president but next year my booking for macmillan is on my board I wish these all the best before I completely fold up all monies raised for a good cause and yes I miss my old mucker MAL ktf

Hi Steve, It’s really nice to hear from you. Yes the history of the Oakfield Club is quite unique to say the least. This was an ‘idea’ that became reality with a successful one a month ‘underground’ club. I have to chuckle to myself sometimes because of the amount of ‘local’ people who I talk to now did not even know that the Oakfield existed, never mind a Northern Soul night here!!!! You Steve were one of the many regulars who has got a good ‘across the board’ knowledge on rare/underplayed soul. I always say to people take and throw away the ‘Northern’ and it’s just black predominantly US soul music.

The Oakfield were great days without the aid of the Internet and we were still jammed every month with people visiting as far from Edinburgh and the midlands etc. It was a club where people met old friends that they had not seen for years and made new long lasting friends as you mention yourself regarding Paul and Geoff. As you know we ran the club for nothing and even say I was in debt due to the investment that myself, Greg, Malc and Les contributed to what must have been the best sound system the soul scene had ever had. We were driving 3000watts RMS per side with 2 sides of Peavey Hysis 4XT’s double 400w rms Black Widow speakers fitted, and stacked on top were Yamaha 400w rms speakers. God knows where all that kit is now. I sold a couple of hundred of my records a couple of years ago to a collector in Stockholm but still have around 1500 left.  

It’s nice to see that you are involved with Macmillan, a very worthy cause. Hope to catch up with you soon Steve.

All the best.

Graham H.
