Life And Soul IV - Weston Super Mare

Life And Soul IV - Weston Super Mare cover


A few words on fridays event from promoter Mike L. Mike L says...


As usual quality sounds were played all night from the popular, to the rare and some just a little bit different

All DJs did excellent and varied sets and maybe they will send me there playlists for me to post. Thanks to Dave Farrell for his debut set standing in for Simon Green at late notice, Ross with his usual expertise for hitting the right spot, John Nightingale for his brand of 70s Northern, a surprise (and sadly short - due to time) set by Phil Merrell - who actually djed at the Twisted Wheel -and Mark for a stonking ending.

Big thanks to all who came - (and Im bound to miss people here, my apologies) - especiallyPaul OBrien from deepest Devon, and his mates from Cheltenham and elsewhere, Neil Selffrom Cheltenham, Phil and Dawn from Barnstable, All those from Cornwall - Falmouth and Newquay - good on ya for travelling so far, it is much appreciated..

Despite our biggest promotion exercise numbers were unfortunately a bit down, although there were sufficient through the door to have a good time -thanks to them.

We posted details on about 8 web sites, were on 2 Northern chat groups, we dropped flyers at Cheltenham, Cardiff, Gloucester, Barnstable, 100 Club, we

advertised in local press, and put posters up all around town, plus Blues and Soul.

We also spread the word by talking to people, emailing and telephone - feedback received was promising generally. We had good reviews on several websites and Soul Up North magazine. We didnt clash with anything nearby, we co-operated with local promoters but hey, we all had a good time.


Weve set up this venue on the basis of what people have told us they want. However, if Weston is wrong or the venue is wrong or the format please let me know. Were taking a break now until the Autumn because venues are difficult through the summer, and then well be back.



Our residences at Brannigans in Bristol and Neptunes Nook will continue, as will our Summer Soul event in Bordeaux in August.
