GROVES RE-UNION, HAXBY YORK Details

Hi one and all,

After so many people have asked me to organise a re-union soul night'

i've finally decided to do it:thumbsup:

Details to follow later.

Hi again

Not long now to the "groves re-union"

HAXBY SPORTS & SOCIAL CLUB

64 NORTH LANE, HAXBY, YORK, YO32 3JP

SOUL-ON SOUL CLUB

SOUND OF YOUNG AMERICA

7.30....12ish

DJ's.....STEVE BRADLEY...MICK BURNETT....JOHN FUNNELL....KEV BAINBRIDGE

INFO....CLUB....01904-768300

£3 O.T.D(same price as when we started)

Thought i'd give a bit of background, shake up a few memories!

The original dj's were...myself, steve bradley, nick beilby & andy bellwood.

It's an age thing but can't remember start & end dates(feel free to post if you can remember),

the building got knocked down to make way for apartments etc.

Punters were a cross section:-heartbeat & hypnotique clubs, plus people from outside the

york area, always a full venue and a great crowd, hope to see a few i haven't seen for a while.

After the club shut, time passed and we tried a new venue at the "bay horse" in marygate.

I didn't anticipate the reaction and we sadly had to turn people away, so like i say i've been talked into

giving it a go at a bigger venue "haxby sports & social".

Music policy was generally everything the punters new & would dance to apart from first 30-45mins when

i played underplayed motown..."B" sides etc.

If anyone can recall anything not mentioned please post it up, there is also a Facebook page, kindly set up

by Marie Mortimer. Dj's will be two of the originals plus tow that stepped in later..John Funnell & Kev Bainbridge

Looking forward to it, All the best Mick

Hi Mick , just seen this ....hope it went well. 

As you say a bit misty recollecting , but personally can't remember being one of Groves resident djs - though Denise and I had many a night there as punters . On the other hand was part of the 'City Soul' team with you and Nick Beiby at City Screen basement venue which was quite magical and of course the City Screen basement bar is where Nick and I 1st started the Yksoul charity  events. Happy days .
