Gt Moor Con Club Stockport Fri 22 Feb Review


Thanks to Steve Foran, as have for you his view on last Fridays nite at Great Moor Club in Stockport.

Orignally posted on Soul-Talk email list

Just thought I would post a listing of our soul night last night. Fri 22 Feb.

The evening was not like our usual nights. In Stockport we have lost two soulies recently. Firstly Nick Stamp died tragically on Christmas Day. Nick was a really nice lad, 38 with a family. Married into an extended soul family and a keen scooter fan. It was the first time we had chance to remember Nick as our soul night is every other month. Our extended feelings go to Nicks family and all his friends. The second departee was only last week and the funeral was on the 22nd. A lot of the party called in to our night. Joe Burns was older than me , I think he was 48. Joe was one of the most colourful soul lads around Stockport and every one knew him. In many repects our night was their night. Our thoughts are with Joes family and friends.

Gt Moor Con Club started when Alan Pollard and myself Steve Foran managed to obtain the club function room for soul nights. The committee were not very happy at first due to the 70s perception of NS, kids and drugs and staying up all night etc etc.We are now nearly at our 2nd Annivesary and the bar takings are around £1700 per night. They want us to go weekly!!!!

We try to mix up the sounds and try to break newer tunes. Last night was a little different,

We split the night into 45mins, 30, 30, 45 mins. Hour long guest spot by Les Hare and the last hour was a deck each for Alan and myself.

The tunes from Alan and myself over the night, in no particular order...

Van Dykes, Tobi Legend for Joe Burns.
