Soul In The City 1st Anniversary


Dave G just passed on a view of last weeks London do "Soul In The City 1st Anniversary" 5th December 2002 Read on.... Apart from being a great day for Charton supporters i.e. the return 10 years ago to our beloved Valley its also the first anniverary of Soul In The City. Christ is it really a year ago ? We used to meet in a bar in the City of London, get pissed, talk football&Northern Soul .Rob Chadwick was getting divorced&Christmas was fast approaching. We decided to get a few mates together for a Xmas&divorce party . Mac knew a bar which sounded interesting,all the bar maids wore very short kilts! So one evening we found ourselves in McNabs asking the manager if there was any chance of playing a few tapes of Northern. Better than that he had some decks which we could use ! Ok get some flyers printed, Lets have a "do", Djs were Rob, Mac, Paul McKay &myself Dave Greenhill. The first night was a great success&we continued with monthly nights till February until problems with the owners forced us to move to our current venue The Old Blue Last. At that point Rob decided to pack up Djing&we were fortunate enough to recruit Martin Thomson onto the team. As well as our normal monthly nights we also ran a couple of highly successful All - Dayers during the year to cement our place on the London Northern Scene. So to the anniversary night :A fantastic night, lots of the normal London crowd, great atmosphere , loads of rarities&a great oldies set to finish the night from Paul which had the whole place up dancing until nearly an hour after the "official" closing time. Next one is 2/1/03&then the first Thursday of every month. For details phone Dave 0797 1876661 This was spotted on KTF on Friday&no we didnt pay him ! Hi Everyone, Just a quick one to say thanks to Martin and the other guys at Soul In The City last night. It was a really great evening, and Id recommend it to anyone who can get there. There was a friendly atmosphere, and the music was great, a nice mixture of some well-known numbers and loads that were new to me. One of my mates from work came there with me, hes not a soul fan, and I am trying to turn him on to our music. He really enjoyed it and at the end of the evening he was moving around to it. Hopefully another convert. Also hello to Andy, it was nice to speak to him again. Definitely going to the next one on 2 January 2003.
