DMSC Bangor Soul At Social
Firday saw the monthly Soul at the Social soul nite at Bangor. Run by Johnny J nite it is a "good time" northern nite. Always popular with locals and travellers from rest of North Wales. Guest wise was myself, Steve T, and Gareth. Fair sized crowd showed up, the whole style and mix of this nite always depends on the crowd, as in who shows up, as it varies along with reaction. Some nites we can cover whole range from r n b to 2k+ and give out a good fresh mix, other nites like tonite may be a more oldie based crowd. Tonite Gareth got things under way with great opening 2 hr spot featuring some right classy stuff. Then myself dished out next hour mainly a mix of popular oldies/r n b /70s Steve Thomas up next with a well put together half a hour Edwin Starr tribute, which included all the classics including the ever popular round here "Love (the lonely people prayer) and finishing tributeon emotional edge with "I Have Faith In You". Steve then carried on with a mainly top drawer oldies brew with some fresh bits thrown in. Mix inc likes of the cracking one to watch instrumental by Jr Walker and San Remo Strings cover, which caused a bit of a stir at last Springfield, Nancy Wilsons great version of reach out for me, Voicemasters-Lonely Lonely, Ellusions You didnt have to leave, Embers -First Time, Broadway Cissy-Roscoe and friends, and more quality revivals which kept the crowd happy and floor full. Overall as always a good sociable nite, crowd got what they wanted, had a good laugh and all that. Next one first Friday of month as always.
