With the 40th anniversary looming, I’ve considered the future of the 6TS all-nighters at the 100 Club. They have run very well (with the usual hiccups) over the last 12 months and I appreciate the two nighters off a year that Matt has run so successfully recently. With advancing years, I do find the whole nighter tiring though, particularly the start, so Matt and I have come up with a solution. I’ll continue to run the anniversary nighters and Xmas parties alone, but after this year’s anniversary, for the rest of the events, we will work in partnership.
He has very kindly offered to do that first opening shift , making sure everyone gets in and the sound, light, chairs etc are AOK. That is what takes it out of me and I’ll have an extended disco-nap and come down a little later for my first DJ spot. I can then stay, feeling less-drained, till the end and those fabulous last three records; my favourite part of the night.
The resident DJs are happy with this planned arrangement, so it’s business as usual with Matt on board as a full partner and more of the same rare soul music, that has seen us into our middle age.
I hope you’ll all be happy with the new arrangement.
Ady & Matt
PS I got the mid-summer all nighter date wrong for 2020and it's July 4th not June 27th as sent out in yesterdays email. Also I left off the Xmas party for this year which is as usual the Thursday before Xmas Dec 19th 9pm-2am. Apart from that, the rest was OK!
To recap future dates are
