The review by my fellow promoter Andy Bellwood just about sums up how we both feel. We have decided to call it a day with the Roots Room with the November 19th Headingley event being the last one.
We are however intending to do one off 'specials' for the Charity perhaps one a year with the first one next year being a Danny Coates 'Get Smarter' special' in July.
This will be held at Harrogate with the Roots Room being in the main bar area rather than the little side room. This is something we stipulated and I hope it suits with Danny Coates. With the Roots Room being in the main bar area this will allow for more people being introduced to this fantastic music of ours and it also has a bar so the room won't keep 'emptying' as people go for a drink. 
Another 'Special' which we also hope will take place will be a 'Kitten Casino' special where those boys and girls will take over the main room and utilise the stage for their fantastic 'Ready Steady Go' look alike film set. 
Another Special will be in York next November.

Finally can I just thank the Scottish boys and Girls for making the trip to Harrogate on saturday and please accept our deepest apologies for the poor turn out.
It was very humbling experience on saturday especially regarding the vast distance you had travelled in order to be with us.
From Myself and Andy I thank everyone who has taken the time to support us.

Dekka's Roots Room. Outstanding music for this Scottish Special by some of the nicest and knowledgable guys (chosen especially by host Brian Cardno) on the 'mod' scene who travelled 100s of miles /6 hours to grace the decks in the Roots Room. Take a bow Brian Cardno, Colin Bailie, Gary Love, Brian Scott,  Haydn Bye,  Acky Buchan and of course that man 'Dekka' , albeit of Barnsley heritage. 

Very refreshing and excellent choice of original vinyl, vast majority new to me (big bonus)  covering mod jazz,  6ts soul & rnb,  Latin , swing , popcorn , early reggae - my sort of music for this type of event and a million miles away from northern traditionalist sounds.  My only disappointment was that in terms of quality, uniqueness and authenticity,  the Roots Room should have been overflowing, so struggling to understand why it wasn't as busy as previous ones (hence the four, rather than five star rating). Certainly can't use the 'usual'  excuse from others of 'too many (similar) events', as apart from the eclectic Brighton Beach Annv event in Leeds, little if any alternative on offer  anywhere ? 
That all said,  came away feeling rather privileged to have experienced  the music, meeting for the 1st time the Scottish contingent , incl Trisha Wagner from Kitten Casino and catching up Brian C  & Acky plus a few who i haven't seen for a while. 
Next Roots Room will be at Leeds Rhinos stadium, part of a four room Charity Soul event  and the line up includes Mik Parry, Eddie Wainwright and Rich Buckley (Soulsville - Leeds , Empty Bottles, Driving Beat etc ) making a special return /back up north for this one, plus the Flipside boys.

Well, almost speechless and gobsmacked lol. I know host Brian Cardno has been putting together his guests for some time ... Just amazed with the team he's assembled for this one,  travelling 100s of miles to be part of Dekkas Roots Room! What a pedigree with Scotlands' finest mod & rnb clubs represented and a unique opportunity to catch them all in Harrogate on 22nd Oct.

I know mate, such an amazing array of DJ's, people travelling from as far away as Aberdeen, wow and such quality from all the major Mod and Soul venues in Scotland. I think Brian has assembled the most exciting line up so far and thats saying something considering the quality that we have had so far, i'm totally gobsmacked

Also for those of a continental soul mindset the guys on the door will have info' about the First ( and hopefully the start of many more) Charity Soul's 'Festival of Soul' in Murcia

Things are moving on apace and we will provide Package Information booklets for people contemplating Movin 'n Groovin' in Murica in 2017 at the Manhattan. 

or contact me:

rockhilldave9@gmail.com

and I'll forward on the details.

Dekka looks to have nailed it again with the DJ line up for the rots room.

Hope Pete/ Toc/Lodgie post the DJ line ups for the northern  and the modern room.

I know some who are confirmed but not all so I can't post but I can guarantee they will fill the floor.

We have a new dedicated "raffle team" Big Dave , & Dave & Jenny so we should have a more eclectic prizes.

Not forgetting the merchandise stall where Geoff is in attendance to take as much money off you as he can lol.

As well as the framed records / prints & t.shirts we now have charitysoul wristbands & charitysoul fans.

So if you haven't been before come along and see what we are about.

Also please remember all the djs & charitysoul helpers give their time for free which enables us to donate as much as possible to Prof Norman Maitland at York Uni in his fight to find the cure for prostate cancer.

It don't get better than this, unless you travel to Scotland regular you will never get the chance to see these wonderful DJ's plying their trade within the Mod and Soul scene. I'm truly deeply humbled and honoured that these boys are travelling such a great distance to visit the Roots Room and help the Charity, Thankyou

if you havn't made the pilgrimage to the Manhattan lounge before it really is a festival of soul under one roof, all on one level and such a great place to have a wander round and have a nosey in the different rooms , each one with its own vibe and atmosphere . the roots room boys are ahead of the game as always [ check out Andy Bellwood's superb  mixcloud  shows ] sure the D J times for the Northern/Modern  rooms will be up soon , and don't forget the great bar prices and offers , once again at risk of sounding like a broken record all money going to a great cause.

Getting close to the Manhattan and we'd like to get as near as possible to our goal donation target of £50,000.0. The current figure we've donated to Professor Maitland's research is £40K, so if you've a spare copper (not a policeman!!!) or two and your attending buy a raffle ticket (or three) from the lovely Charity Soul ladies (and the most handsome dwarf in Morley) who will be going around the rooms on Saturday. We've some new soul memorabilia donated to the merchandise stall so Geoff will be able to show and persuade you to purchase unique and exclusive memorabilia. 

REMEMBER ALL THE PROFITS FROM THIS EVENT EITHER ENTRANCE FEE, RAFFLE MONIES AND MEMORABILIA PURCHASES, ARE DONATED DIRECTLY TO PROSTATE CANCER IN YORK - NO POCKET STUFFERS HERE!!!

yep all roads lead to Harrogate , for another superb day. big variety in the Modern room with Lodgie and the crew . 2016 is turning out to be another great year for soul music with new releases and tunes that never got a release back in the day finally getting released on the different formats, plus of course some great new mixes and re-edits on tracks. sure there will be some Four tops and Temptations played in the three rooms with them appearing in Yorkshire [Leeds ] on the Sunday . Gonna be a good day , get those tickets on the above numbers.

think  General Lodge has taken it a bit far with this kit inspection thing insisting all the boys in the Modern room book into the salon for the full  back ,sack and  crack , hope the DJs in the other rooms are not subject to this. things we have to go through for the excellent charity soul clientele.

That's dreadful news - just as well Sammy has a carer with him when he's behind the decks in the Northern Room at 9pm . I'm sure Stu Richards will make sure Sammy will be ok.
