Soul At The Social - Bangor - Review
Well this was a good local soul nite, extremely good I would say. Great sounds ranging from some well top rarities to classy well thought revivals, a 100+ crowd, many visitors, all seemed out to enjoy themselves, giving the place later on a great buzz, as always friendly sociable feel, were a fair few record boxes as well, and all to me made it one of the best nites have had there
With Kev Murphy and Steve Thomas pulling out the stops....
Hit read more to read rest
Dj wise - will stick a few plays at end to give you idea
Myself did normal first bit till ten, floor was a bit quiet as it filled up apart from a few brave souls,
Johnny J up next, the promoter and the locals favourite as he know what makes then tick with a selection of some classy revivals and some current floor fillers that got a great reaction.
Kev Murphy up next with a well cracking set, with some of the top current sounds around, top rarities, rare revivals, some serious in your face soul thrown out and went down well
Steve Thomas up next and carried on the good work with a blinding set, some awesome sounds that finished the nite, again got the balance just right with something for everyone to an appreciative crowd. Steve from Holyhead gotta be one of North Wales top Djs/collectors, with a well large collection, has nearly every "want" of mine and takes great pleasure in telling me.
Yeah gotta say Kev and Steve did the business allright, quality stuff
As said 100+ crowd, not the most packed seen it, but a fair few commented on the best buzz, visitors from a far that know of were from NW Pete Coulson and Barry J, Carl and the Stockport gang again, Wrexham, Rhyl and all stops up to Holyhead. Spoke to most of the travellers and all gave it a big thumbs up. Nite closed and then off to the after-event event, which in keeping with nite was well enjoyable.
Have to mention Cel whos a regular visitors, asked me to pass on his crap pile, us 45 failed blind buys is now at the height of 6 6" when stacked on each other, is this a record.....
Final Word a great nite.
Next one not till April 05 (none in March due to the two weekenders in Llandudno and Prestatyn plus the event in Dublin the weekend after)
Djs lined up are Mark Speakman, Chico, Johnny J, Mike H
Playlists - ok as always asked for top 5s and as always waiting to collect. So brief recollections
Very brief ! As was just going to dredge memory but times just run out, so out of here, get back to this later hopefully
