Brian Cardno -DJ Profile

AdLib - Saturday October 1st

At first it was 60's pop and Tamla Motown that got me into music, and then in the summer of 1966, 60's soul was added to the mix.


In the mid 70's I got a residency, DJ'ing on Friday and Saturday at Caesar's Palace, a Mecca owned venue, in Berwick upon Tweed. Music in the main was 60's and 70's soul, Northern and disco. From 1978 to 1989 I ran a mobile disco playing in venues around Northumberland

I started putting on the soul nights in the fantastic basement at Barrels Alehouse in Berwick around 2000, and R&B gained a foothold after meeting Dicka, Deka, Geoff Bell and Steve Hiscock amongst others around at the late John Powney's house. Soul at the Barrels has hosted some of the country's top DJ's who always comment on the great atmosphere and the music policy of 60's soul, R&B, mod and ska sounds. We're temporarily in Tweedmouth Bowling Club due to "noise abatement" problems at the Barrels - but we'll be back !

From 2008 to 2011 I also promoted, with friends Stan Evans and Pete Everett, the Berwick weekenders, featuring many guest DJ's and club specials from the Hideaway, Glasgow Friday Street and others.

I also promoted "Soul in the Suburbs" in Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne, with my friend Frank McCue, and have played DJ spots recently at Dekka's Roots Room (Leeds Charity Soul), The Sink in Liverpool, Beatin' Rhythm in Newcastle and Nowt but Northern in Glasgow.

I'm really looking forward to playing some of my records for the crowd at the AdLib on October 1st.
