Soul In The City All-Dayer 04 June 02
Soul In The City All-Dayer Bank Holiday 4th June
Extra Jubilee bank holiday? OK lets have an All - Dayer
S.I.T.C. has been going since December 2001& what started as a one off Christmas drink with the lads while playing a bit of Northern has become a regular monthly event on the London calender. We are mainly an oldies based venue but do try to use a bit of imagination as can be seen by our playlists on various outlets i.e. KTF Soultalk etc. as well as websites like Soul Source. We operate the first Tuesday of every month upstairs at The Old Blue Last pub in Great Eastern Street EC2, free entry, beer £2 a pint & with the first Tuesday of June a bank holiday it was too good an opportunity to miss. Apprehension over numbers, from me at least was unheeded, from 4pm healthy numbers were inside & the place was heaving by 5pm. A few travellers were present but the majority of attendees were regulars from the main London venues making it more like a party than anything else The atmosphere was superb,very laid back but at the same time up for anything that was played. So much so,even some of our “seasoned “guest DJ’s commented on it.
The music from start till finish was varied & valid as was Martin “12pint” Thomson who started the day off brightly & finished it with a slightly glazed look about him!( as did most of us) A big thanks to all our guest Dj’s Andy Faulkner, Alan Handscombe,Simon Bridger,Rob Messer, Nick Brown who did his bit for the Jubilee by playing Queen of Fools & Kenny Burrell who chained his record box to a very unstable coat rack & also managed to clock up a very reasonable 2200 miles driving around the country Djing that weekend! DJ rosta was completed by SITC regulars Paul Mckay & myself Dave Greenhill. Some fantastic music was played, brilliant atmosphere & to top it all Helen turned up with a huge bag of assorted sandwiches ! Shame she didn’t dish out asprins for the following days headaches. Next SITC is on 2nd July, for a great night with the cheapest booze at a London venue get yourself down there!
