Shirleys review of The Pavilion, Huddersfield Jan 12th 2002



By Shirley Stewart

This is a slightly biased review as this venue is run by my better half, Colin Wood, with the help of the other resident DJs, John Purvis and Eddie Engel.

The venue has been running since last May every second Friday of every second month. Previous attendance’s had been disappointing so after the October date we decided to change the soul nite to a Saturday for 2002. Whether a Friday night had been the reason for previous low numbers or word had spread about the sort of soul nite we were aiming for I’m not sure, but Saturday night was definitely our best night to date, both for the numbers through the door and the class of music played. Soulies came from far and wide and were not disappointed with the records that the DJs spun – although the dance floor was hard work so there was not quite as much action on it as many of us dancers would have liked, anyone who knows me knows that I just lurve to dance. Still the toons given long overdue airings more than made up for the shin killing dance floor.

The guest DJs were Alex Jones who has a superb record collection (if you ever get chance to hear him DJ you’ve just got to make the trip) and “Toddy Tim” Brown, whose reputation precedes him. Tim, along with others, turned up around midnight after DJing at John and Janet Hillel’s wedding (congratulations you two by the way – sorry we missed your special day). Col had been starting to pace the floor a little as panic began to set in when the midnight hour loomed and still no sign of Tim, as some of those attending had come along to hear Tim’s set and Col was beginning to think John & Janet had maybe kidnapped him or his records ………….. hmmm what would I do, kidnap Tim or kidnap his records?

Anyway we were all treated to a wicked night full of spanking music and a huge thank you to all the DJs and punters alike. I hope you enjoyed yourselves I know I did!!!!
