New Tighter Format - Odd bits of news will go in Forum, while stuff like from weekend will be on main page.
SCENESVILLE -SECOND ANNIVERSARY Friday nite One of the big events of the weekend was Scenesvilles Second Annivesary down London town way. Reports from this are that it was "awesome", the music, crowd and atmosphere all being top notch. Certainly seems that this was the place to be this weekend. ANDY RIX, CHRIS DALE, DAWN BROWN and NICK BROWN with special guest KITCH 100% Real Deal 60s Rare Soul! they advertised it as, and sfrom what heard sounds like they delivered and then some. Hats off to the lot of them and congratulations on 2 ground breaking years. As one punter said "probably the best soul night Ive been to this year, absolutely brilliant."
NORTH MANCHESTER SOUL CLUB @ BURY Friday Niter 4th Annivesary DJs included Richard Searling, Kenny Burrell, Kev Murphy, Terry Davies, Ginger Taylor, Dave Booth and many more. Event here celebrated its 4th annivesary on Friday, and always seems a popular event Managed to grab a few views from some who attended and they varied quite a bit. Those who were after the style on offer gave it a very good. Of course these were just views passed on, if were there can use comments to get your views in.
GOLDBOURNE MINI-NITER - a mini-review
After a stop off at Joe Dunlops local in his outpost for a meet up at a back room soul nite, which was a good nite, meet up and a laugh, had round 100 odd in and guys dj-ing gave them what they wanted. After good time there got to Goldbourne. Just for bit of a challenge once in Goldbourne asked every drunk directions to add a bit of a edge to journey, gotta say town has a great set of Saturday nite drunks, with almost clear directions, and not one sending us wrong direction. Left before church being the key here
First time at this one, and name "the goldbourne catholic club" and the look outside of the place gives bit of false impression, but once in place bit different, first feel was a smart venue and well laid out. With record area, couple of bars, other room with decks casually playing varied selection mainly 6ts mix was what heard Main hall smart, good seating all around and all that, late bar, normal prices. Crowd wise, lot of the usual rogues, someone mentioned tourist once with regard to this place, but didnt spot any meself , crowd thinned out bit later on. All seemed enjoying it. DJ wise, some of North West names caught as didnt get there till 12 ish were Carl Willingham, Terry Davis, Kev Murphy and Dave Holt. Dishing out their current top sounds
All car load thoroughly enjoyed nite give it a thumbs up. Heard that plans for a monthly regular niter till 6am here on the third saturday were solid and after the nov date would adopt that format. So that may be of interest with those planning events. Know cause of all these possible clashes thinking of moving the 2003 DMSC series of rare soul mayhem nites to a Wednsday afternoon.!
Word on the 6ts 100 Club website is that this has been sold out already. Ouch!! The other major Weekender of 2003 at Presatyn is going very well, and along with the quality Conniseurs weekend at Llandudno it seems that the old saying "you can have your cake and eat it three" rings true. Said last year about these events "Soul for the Soul Fans run by Soul Fans" You Know The Real Score!!
MORE OLD SCHOOL TRICKS - when will they learn ? Seems a lot of people are upset with a certain promoter/dj with some rocket-style dirty tricks up in Yorkshire way
FINAL WORD Mate caught Johnathen Ross show on radio 2. Seems Dale Winton was guest, on show Ross mentioned Northern, apparently your man Dale Winton said hes well into it, says has loads of records and is a regular at that Rocket.....
and as cant think of anything to say after that! Seems a good place to finish. mike h
