Friday 15th June, just been to one of the best Northern Soul nights ever. Its funny but having been out of the (scene) for more years than I care to remember, I was overwhelmed at the East Midlands Soul Club abillity to find a venue that has everything perfectly suited for a stomping night.
The place was easy to find with a large lit car park, a warm welcome on the door and drinks at 1/2 what I normally pay. The music started with a mixture of r&b, old soul and crossover which was a pleasant mixture and started the feet tapping.
After about 9 the music really started having an effect, the quality of the sound system is one of the best I have heard and I made my way to the floor. Here I found a not only polished wood, but sprung floor, I was going to enjoy this. The music variation for the rest
of the night was mainly requests and the people voted with their feet as to the acceptance of the sounds, I can honestly say that for the next 4 hours I only heard one duff 45.
Although at midnight I stifled a yawn, I was on the floor till 1 with almost all of the crowd who were so friendly, held every month, guess where youll find me on 20th July.
