Weekend Bits From Up North Wales/NW
Quick Word on Broughton Wings Soul Nite.
First time visit to this venue and a great nite. Held in the British
Aerospace social club at Broughton near Chester, nite was a well welcomed
change from the normal format of events. The club itself is a very plush
venue that the words social club just doesnt do justice. Because of world
events, there was a tightening of security but this was hardly noticable.
Sounds wise, well few plays below but were talking about across the board
feel here with all eras covered and not just the token 60s 45 as some "open
minded " venues do, which fitted in perfectly with the venue and the crowd.
As said just a quick word, but if youre after a classy nite out with some
well classy soul this well could be your thing. Most definitely be returning
Couple of top plays from the nite from DJs
Steve Thomas (Holyhead) first main spot
Charles Johnson - Never had a love so good - Alston
Soul Communicators - Those Lonely Nights - Fee Bee
Jive Fyfe - If I had a Chance - Decca
Dells - Thinking About You - Cadet
Bob Hinsley Top 3 plays from the nite
Bobby Rich - Theres A Girl Somewhere For me- Sambea
Charisma Band - Aint Nothing Like Your Love- Buddah
Vivian Carrol - Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah - Merleen
Brian Ellis was on next but by that time was well in to enjoyment mood and forgot to ask plus memory let me down
Soul Sam finished the nite with as always some great stuff
Played a couple of Detroit 60s one offs - which sounded good on first hear
one dodgy recollection was -
Had a quick visual at one and tried comitting it to memory ! result was
Marget Lettin - love will find a way - genloro
but even now looking at it doesnt seem right at all, still its as good as it
gets, treat it as a anagram challenge
the other which after a determined effort to remember all 3 of us could come up
with was errr..
it had the word angel in.
