Live It Up Soul Night Walsden, Todmorden


We went along to a new venue last night at Pockets Leisure Centre, Walsden nr Todmorden. I have to admit, I was thinking during the journey to the venue, hope its not another oldies night, I need another one of those like a hole in the head People who know me will agree I am a moaning bastard if I hear constant oldies at venues, in my opinion there is a sea of vinyl out there worthy of turntable action, cheap as chips records for a tenner that are often over-looked gems&every bit as good as the four figure rarities. Anyway sermon over, the venue itself is easy to find, part of an old mill complex, just at the side of the main rd, up a short flight of stairs, pay your £3(very cheap) good sized room with plenty of tables down one side with DJ decks at the bottom, quite a large dance floor. Friendly bar staff and reasonably priced drinks. This was the first Northern Night held under the Live It Up banner, billed as Totally across the board Music Policy, and it was. An eclectic mix of tunes and in my opinion the balance was perfect, RnB, 60s, Lp tracks, Lesser known/played Motown, Modern, 70s-90s tunes all fused together perfectly. Some of the tunes which are still in my head: Joseph Moore, New Monitors, Supremes, Misery (makes my heart its home)&their great version of the Barrett Strong classic Money, Sam Dees Fragile, Garnett Mimms Prove it, Gladys Knight, The Stranger, Aretha Integrity Syng McGowan, Dusty Springfield Live It Up etc etc. I wish I had noted more of the tracks but the shandy was flowing freely! So....a great new venue, very friendly crowd, top tunes, next one is Friday June 25th....DJs Ste Andrew, Smila, Tony P and guests...see you there cheers
