Southern Soul


The South are always complaining that there isnt anywhere to go locally... well, they are wrong! You do not have to travel to London to find a decent soul gig with rare soul. You do not even have to travel to London for atmosphere! See, there is this amazing newish nighter born from two deeply passionate men down Portsmouth way. I know, your saying... well, not sure what they are gonna play.. dont wanna visit a new gig if they play the same old shit over and over... OK, I hear you!

 So, here are a few of their playlists. The dancefloor is 100% wood heaven with a good dosing of talc. Blimey I hear you all say! And NO! That was not from the guest DJs, that was from the RESIDENT lads. Steve Csordas and Dave Abbott. Two hugely, fanatical, passionate guys whom deserve a lot of attention. Foremost because of their passion for taking the soul scene forward instead of patriotically paused... who are patrons of some of the best soul nights around the world and who care about the scene. I implore, all those that are the south to patronise this soul event as they do yours. 2004 dates are: 23 Jan Colin Wood and Eddie Engel 27 Feb Andy Faulkner and Simon Bridger - slurp 30 April Pete Hulatt and Molly - yippeeee 25 June & first anniversay Nige Shaw and Cookie and Guest 25 Sept Alan Hanscome and Ady Lupton - Dome? Bring it on! 27 NovBenji Schlamp and Heikki.. yeehaaaa... soul talk brilliance At the Racecourse Snooker Club, Southampton Road (A27), North Harbour, Cosham, Hampshire. Chuck that in your TomTom if you have one and save as a favourite :D I have!
