Drunken Monkey Soul Club

As always if want latest news, score or word on ought monkey, as always just ask any of the DMSC team.
Just say have had a fair few laughs hearing what "others" say the score is.....

Clashes :

May notice the orig date has changed, purely due to fact was clashing with Soul Sam/Brian Ellis event close by Silverwings event at Broughton, this was entirely our own fault.
Cause of this the dates in "On the Scene" are wrong, please spread the word that 22 May is the date not the one in the guide (as said entirely our fault)

North Wales:

The DMSC is North Wales Coast based, and also holds other events round the North Wales coast and beyond , all monkey related events say so on flyers, ads etc, if it hasnt got that on it then it aint got Monkey

Future Events

Llandudno - Next DMSC Llandudno Soul Nite is coming up soon
(this is the long running soul nites that have nought to do with any other llandudno events)

Next Monkey at Springfield - standby for release of all future dates for rest of 2004 complete with line ups

Other events - again more news to come.......watch this space


Just like to pass on as hitting the 2 year point, to all who have had ought to do with monkey, thanks to all for their support and assistance.

DMSC team- still climbing that tree

Mike Hughes, Steve Thomas
