Desboro Nite Review

 

Well after seeing there was much going on last Saturday night in London, myself and Louise decided to travel a few miles the small town in Desborough in Northamptonshire to see what the soul night at the Ritz was like. we travelled up late on Saturday afternoon, after booking ourselves into the local travel lodge at weekend special rate (£25.00 if you book on a Saturday not bad) so we would not have to drive back and both could have a drink.

After having a few beers with the locals in this small town with only one cash point (glad it was working) and then thinking had we done the right thing travelling and booking a hotel but both off us were surprised at the venue, very nice place to have a soul night, much like a small Wigan casino, fair size dance floor, balcony going all the way round, large area to sit and a small bit for record dealers, the bar bit on the small side but did not take to long to get served and very good prices also, small modern room upstairs.

As the night went on the music was right across the board playing modern right though to classic northern soul which makes a nice change. few face had also come up from the London area Johnny , Michelle, Reg and Dave Townsend, Ross . I think all in all it was a good night even 100 club dj and promoter ady crosdale was djing (must have been like coming home for him) so for a off the cuff night and with a small out lay very enjoyable night, we will go again later in the year .the only small think i would have said about the whole night was the sound system, music was not that load which was a bit off a shame, but still a very good venue and well worth a visit.

We also travelled down to Desborough again (from Langley, Derbyshire ) on Saturday night. We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thought that Simon ? (sorry dont know second name) did a brilliant spot - playing a lot of my favourites mostly from the Stafford era I guess (somebody no doubt will put me right). Have to agree about the sound system - it wasnt quite loud enough with the conversation in the larger seated area sometimes getting in the way of the music. That aside, I think the Ritz is a great venue with a buzzing atmosphrere and worth travelling for, heres looking forward to the next one.
