Owls, Snow And Lil' Ole Me.....

Sheffield Wednesday takeover, excellent news, a Saudi Billionaire? Er no....it's Milan Manderic. Oh well, at least he was the best option at the time and, we are fairly debt free. Bye Bye Co-op bank.
Got a really busy December with gigs in Stoke at the Queens, Basford on Saturday December 4th, the Christmas Party at the Westgate Suites,Westgate, Long Eaton, then the All Nighter at the Kings Hall Stoke 24 hours later on the 11th and back to the Queens,Basford for a Sunday Soul Session on the 19th.
Final gig of the year is New Years Eve back at the Westgate Suites,Long Eaton.
Details can be found at http://www.goldsoul.co.uk/ .
My colleague Richard Searling is launching the new Go Ahead label this week with two fabulous singles.
Both available through Expansion Records. A series of cd's too. I wish him all the best.
Where did all that snow arrive from? Oslo is warmer!
Looking forward to the New Year as my web sites are getting a makeover- plus we are working on new events in Blackpool, Weston Super Mare.
I will keep this month's blog to a minimum as I know planning the Festive Season is both joyous and tiresome at the same time.
Hopefully we'll run into each other at one of the Soul events listed above.
Have a great Christmas.
Until next time...Stay well.

A heavy week or what. I am supposed to be slowing down.
Last Saturday saw the All Nighter at the Kings Hall, Stoke. What a turnout! The classics are still the thing, no question.
Looking forward to Oct 16 in Prestatyn for the Velvelettes, Tavares, Dean Parrish gig, followed by the Kings Hall,Stoke,Oct 22 for the Signal 2 night out and 24 hours later it's the Torch Revival, Tunstall.
End of the month its a quick turnaround for moi, with Long Eaton on the 29th then Costa Del Soul from the 30th. Should be fun as I have the lovely Evison's on the same flight!
Talk about planning....Richard Searling and I have the Winter Gardens,Blackpool in the works for Feb 12 next year, while generating a gameplan for the same name in Weston Super Mare on August Bank Holiday 2011.
Just love the new Bobby Sheen from his latest CD. The Sam Dees on Shotgun too.
Desperately trying to create a window(3 months!) to work on the final updated version of my book 'The Northern Soul Top 500 ala 'the definitive' at the same time scribbling my memoirs to create Right On Keep The Faith and all that. Is it too much of a mouthful? My publisher thinks so?
I think there's a story to tell of interest.....let's see if it happens.
