why do promoters advertise "Soul and Motown" nights?

are'nt they one and the same? :thumbsup: . Would a Soul and Okeh night, or a Soul and Ric Tic night be advertised? After all, Motown is a label , same as the rest



hmmmmm

Cos they are aiming at a certain market.Okeh,Ric-Tic would go over their heads?.My parents have never heard of Okeh,but maybe would attend a Motown advertised night.

They should just put 'handbag soul' because that's what they end up as. They put Motown to attract the general public i.e. non-soulies.

RECORDS TO SELL?  I'LL DO IT FOR YOU.  SAVE YOU THE HASSLE. ASK FOR DETAILS.

 

OVER 2200 ITEMS FOR SALE AT MY DISCOGS SITE - MAINLY SOUL, PLUS REGGAE, ROCK & ROLL, 60’s BEAT, GARAGE, PUNK, GIRL GROUPS etc.  HAVE A BROWSE AT THE ADDRESS BELOW:

Aren't you a "preferred DJ" for these kind of nights in your area Pete? :thumbsup:

"Club Classics" is another one... That's such a wide church that you could play almost anything. Handbaggers is a bit uncharitable, as I always think of my sister, who at nearly 60, is every inch a Soul fan and has some great records, it's just that they're not Leon Haywood and The Artistics , that's all. Is there a male version of a handbagger?

Can always rely on you Malc to start my day off with a chuckle, thanks mate.

Some say it's a sign of weakness for a man to beg

Then weak I would rather be if it means having you to keep, 'cause lately I've been losing sleep

I remember years ago Mr Self and Mr French putting on a Motown and Atlantic night at Cheltham, and it wasn't handbaggers stuff either, a great night all round

Probably because,

Pissheads that never went to Wigan because their mams wouldn't let them go, spilling drinks on the dancefloor, puking up in the bogs, bumping into you without apologising, saying the DJ is crap bcause he hasn't got Third Finger Left Hand and breathing garlic over your missus whilst trying to get off with her.

doesn't sound as good on the flyer.

That was the last 'Soul & motown night' I went to anyway. In my experience it usually turns out to be the modern day version of a working man's club night.

don't normally go to these but have Dj-ed at one mind you i was on first so snuck in a lot of stuff not expected at the night. Might aswell not have soul and motown nights instead just call it oldies night for anyone into 50's - 80's music they might like pop aswell and stuff.

Ive never understood a music policy being described as "strictly across the board"...seems a contradiction imho.
