  1. Darnall Horti Soul Club

    After another excellent night in August, this month we're looking for a repeat show with two more top-line special guests, 'Soap' and Baz Goddard, bringing you the very finest rare and underplayed tunes, all only on original vinyl. Why not come along and join our friendly and knowledgeable regular crowd? With residents Alan Millington, Bri Pinches and John Moffatt, we kick off around 8.00pm and run to 12.30. Entry is only £3.
    I ought to be getting tired of posting comments like this, but that's not going to happen. :-) What another fabulous night at the Horti.   Many thanks to all who came and made it another memorable evening, and special thanks to our guests Paul Morrall and John Phillips for two hours of brilliant, varied and imaginative playing. If anyone wants to post playlists, I'm sure there'd be plenty of interest. Now we can look forward to our September bash with special guests 'Soap' and Baz Goddard. Hope we'll see you all then.

  4. Latest information, guest DJs for August...
  5. Hi Elvis, I'm definitely interested in playing some tunes for you sometime. I've been looking at getting down to the Washy, but haven't been able to make it. Can't make this Saturday either unfortunately, though 20th August should be ok. We will get down sometime. :-) Cheers John
  6. Back To The Roots at The Horse And Jockey

    Another top night of 50s and 60s R&B and early soul, ska and whatever, for your delight. For September's bash we welcome Ian Cracknell as our guest DJ. Ian owns a terrific collection of R&B and associated sounds, with many not so well-known gems. We're in for another belter. And remember, it's FREE!!. So why not join Nicki, Joe, John and our amazing supporters at the brilliant Horse & Jockey for one of the best nights out ever.
  7. Darnall Horti' Soul Club

    After an excellent night in July, this month we're going to do it all again with two more top-line special guests, John Phillips & Paul Morrall, bringing you the very finest rare and underplayed tunes, all only on original vinyl. Why not come along and join our friendly and knowledgeable regular crowd? With residents Alan Millington, Bri Pinches and John Moffatt, we kick off around 8.00pm and run to 12.30. Entry is only £3.
  8. Sheffield Sunday Soul Sessions at the Mulberry Tavern

    July's open-decks session brought us another cracking afternoon of superb soul music. Our thanks must go to Roy, Barry, Tony, Brett, Ian, Mark, Rob & Don for 4 hours of varied and totally excellent tunes. The turnout was fantastic, so those who persuaded me to continue with this event were bang on with their advice. Thank you everyone. For a variety of coincidental reasons, our guests in May played to an almost empty room. It seemed only fair to ask them back for our September bash when I'm sure they'll get the support they deserve. We welcome, again, Steve Mannion, Tony Smith & Alan Millington. We will continue to run on the 2nd Sunday of the month, so our next Sheffield Sunday Soul Session will be on September 11th. Remember, starting at 2.00pm and ending at 8.00pm. We play an across the board mix of seriously soulful, rarer and underplayed, chilled tunes, all on original vinyl (no boots, modern repro's, 70s British reissues, CDs and all that lot). And, it's FREE ENTRY, so why not come along and enjoy an afternoon of great music, with great people and, maybe, a pint or two? Hope we'll see you there, John & Gary
  9. Sent you a PM, Barry.

  12. What a fantastic night at the H&J!!! Thank you to all who came along and made it a very special evening. A top mention must go to Waggie, John and Rob for supplying the kit, which, apart from one minor moment of being Lakined performed excellently all night. :-) My co-residents Joe and Nicki deserve massive praise, but top of the shop have to be our guests Graham Johnson and Chris Reilly who absolutely blew the place apart with some awesome tunage. Each event seems to be better than the one previous, which means our September 3rd bash will really be worth looking forward to. I'll announce details a little later.
  13. Somehow or other, I have missed all this about John. I am totally shocked and very, very sad to hear he died, and even more upset that I missed his funeral. He was the one who persuaded me, many, many years ago, that R&B was the way to go, and that rare and brilliant records need not be expensive. He was down to earth, straightforward and more than a bit stubborn, and I admired him for all that. I met him a couple of times, but had many, many very interesting phone conversations with him, the last of which could only have been days before he eventually passed away, when we actually arranged to go up and see him in July. That, of course, will now never happen. I will find something suitable for the R&B room in Bridlington this weekend. Thank you John for the privilege of knowing you. John Moffatt
  14. Sent you a PM. John
