True Soul:  The Scottish Weekender magazine cover

The Weekender evolved from an idea of an across the board one room event for like minded soul music fans in a great setting and venue listening and dancing to some cool tunes and generally having a good time.

So we sourced the venue and passed the word around what we were planning...keeping our ears to the ground and listening to folks regarding which DJS they would like to play for them so after numerous phone calls and loads of chit chat we launched the True Soul event. We now have news warm you up and get you in the mood for the Summer of 2013 ....Right on... and that's the "True Soul Weekender" now launched and ready to go. Doors are now open to all you Brothers and Sisters who fancy a great weekend of fun and soul music in what can only be described as Scotland's Jewel in the crown "The Peebles Hydro Hotel".

“Hello is that Ruff Cutt? Is Scotland On?”

Once upon a time in the Wild Wild West (Scotland not the USofA that is) there was a bunch of outlaws lead by one Jim O’Hara, a real Desperate Dan type character, together with his outlaws they became known as the Ruff Cutt Gang. Now these scallys have escaped the lock ups and institutions that housed them and they are back for another hoedown, bringing you an afternoon of music and mayhem in tribute to One of the Scotland’s and the UK’s finest Rare Soul Clubs,

"The Allanton (Shotts) Allnighters" aka "The Ruff Cut Soul Club".
