Valatone on Saturday


I would just like to say sorry about the cancellation on Saturday and a huge thank you to everyone who went along to Valatones emergency doo on Saturday night. The whole nightmare started at 5:30, we had just loaded up the cars with all the gear (sound system, decks, lights, records etc.) and were about to set off to Euston when I get a call from Oonagh (who runs the venue) saying that theres an eighteen birthday party booked in for that night and not us!!! Noooooooo... so after the initial tears and tempers we have to ring around and e-mail to try and stop everyone having a wasted journey. That done we call the venue and get them to put a poster up, but we know its not gonna be enough. So we unload the gear out of one of the cars and drive up to greet the people who we couldnt reach, buy them a drink and re-direct them to one of the other doos that were on that night, well that was the plan but it worked out a little bit happier in the end. We got to the venue and spyed a nice pub on the corner with a big window so we could catch any punters and drag them in and buy em a drink etc. meanwhile mobiles are going off all over the shop and the barman hears the whole sorry tale. He then says "Saturday nights our quietest night and Ive got a set of decks, Ill fetch em up". Brilliant we had music and Brummie Mick had a box of records, so I quickly went round the corner and adjusted the poster, and before we new it we had a DIY doo!! The bar was doing so well he had to call in extra staff, and he gave us a lock-in until 1 oclock. Thanks especially to all the boys with record boxes who done spots at a moments notice: Brummie Mick, Kev Moore, Trickster and Dave Rimmer. And thanks to all the punters who got into it and mucked in, you are all wonderful people (PS if I missed getting anyone a drink Ill make up for it when I next see you) All the best Johnny
