soul in the city...5-3-02


The "Soul in the City" crew moved to a new venue this week, after having a few problems with the old one, but this looks like being our long term home The new venue is a large pub (The Old Blue Last) on the edge of the City in Great Eastern St. at the corner of Curtain Rd. with a fair size function room upstairs and with the beer prices at £2.40 a pint, we could not turn it down. With 5 DJs the nights sounds were right across the board. Classics to R&B Beat ballads, up tempo stompers to cross over, the night had something for everyone. Hit read more for more info and playlists By about 9.30pm there where about 35-40 people in, which for a Tuesday night, and all that goes on in London was not bad. There was a problem with the decks, due to a loose floor board, which caused the decks to jump when anybody danced or backdropped (you know who you are!) too close to the DJs, with a funny sight watching Paul asking people to move back from the decks, when anyone got too close. The Landlord Tommy, an old soul boy himself, having already moved the decks once at our instigation, promised this will be sorted for next month, Tuesday 2nd April. Although the bar shuts at 11pm, it was about 11.50 when the last record was played. All in all it was a good night to hear all the different types of Northern and have a dance and chat on a Tuesday night. Here are some of the records that were played (sorry Dave Greenhills sets are unavailable due to him being on holiday this week and unable to email them.)
