Absolutely Brilliant night again. Good to see this place so busy now, thought with Prestatyn being on may have been a bit sparse, but no, still busy, still buzzing, great. Top people, Top music, Top night. Tina & Phil. x

TOP TOP Night at the Shack last night.Nothing to worry about Tezza the clubs still in one piece the place was full and buzzing.Some top dancers in dancing to great sounds

Thanks for giving me a spot i loved every minute of it :thumbup:

The other DJs were premier league.Its hard to see how Martin Smiths record box could get any better than it is but that Joe Mathews has pushed its way to the front and sounded just awesome.Andy Powell played a blinder with a well selected group of qualty records just right for the night.Last but not least Mark Johnson played mouth watering stuff that you simply dont hear at soul nights real gems.

Finally a nod to Martin Smith and Kath, the hard work they put in helping Terry out with the Shack as well as the incredible Inner Soul is a very big deal and as a result two great clubs are still around for us all to enjoy:hatsoff2:

Echo fully what Patto has said above.

It was a real pleasure to attend and DJ at the Soul Shack.

This was a top night with all the DJ's playing quality tunes that hit the spot with the dancers and meant a busy dancefloor all night.

Month on month the attendence has been growing with people who enjoy quality oldies but also are open to hear something a little different. Even with the biggest weekender of the year on and plenty of other soulnights locally the Soul Shack was well attended by regulars and new faces.  There was a great atmosphere which is a real credit to the work that Terry, Martin and Kath have put in. The warm welcome everybody receives is 2nd to none.

The word seems to be spreading and I can see a healthy future ahead which is well deserved.

There were so many good things about last night.

The big crowd who danced all night and didn't want to go home at the end.

Patto doing the first spot, a natural northern soul DJ who I'm sure will be getting bookings at more and more Venues. 

 Andy Powell (and the lovely Mandy) our guest DJ with a great mix of classic and rare soul and Mark Johnson who helped me out on the night and played a brilliant spot including the Ascots ( Another Day) and the Brooks Brothers.

All good things, but the real highlight for me was meeting the legendary Torch DJ Alan Day and him asking me to play Duke Browner for his lovely wife Crissy, something I'll never forget.

The Soul Shack has gone from strength to strength and is a firm fixture in lots of diaries. Long may it continue ?

Leaving the place in very good hands ( hope there's a place when I get back !! )

When we first started this venue we didn't expect it to go quite so well, a nice little venue for those that like the not so 'popular' Northern Soul stuff.  Our numbers have steadily grown and we have made a lot of new friends.  All are welcome and will be treated to a selection of Soul that will have you both running to the floor and scratching your head trying to remember the last time you heard it. 

Mark Johnson is wearing the Ginger Wig this Month with Patto ably assisting Martin behind the decks.  Our special guest is our great friend, collector and fabulous DJ Mr Andy Powell.  Hopefully you can join them, you won't be disappointed XXX

Great to be asked to do a one off stint behind the decks while Terry is away painting Prestatyn Red (or gingerish at least).

Really looking forward to it and echo all that Terry said about this place.If you love Northern soul that makes your cogs turn then the Shack is a total must do.

Ive got a nice set of underplayed dancers with a couple of Stafford memories lined up to hopefully send em running to the floor whilst Scratching their heads.

And if all else fails ive got a line up of TOP guys in the rescue party with records to die for

As usual really looking forward to Saturday night at The Soul Shack.

Always lots of quality tunes played and a busy dancefloor as well.

Looking forward to hearing what Andy Powell produces of the quality tunes in his play box,

See you Saturday
