Saturday 13th June 2009

On Board The Flower Of Bristol

Departs 18:30 @ The River, 1 Canons Road, Harbourside, Bristol, BS1 5TX.

After the success of our Soul Cruise in 2008, we are once again taking to the waves for The Second Getting Together Sunset Soul Cruise!

Getting Together started in 2003 with a few low key events at the Albion Pub in Bristol. We borrowed decks, did the flyers at work, no one turned up, and we were lucky to break even, but we satisfied our need to play the soul music we love out loud to the few that listened. Nearly six years on now, and we have a regular following (you know who you are!), and two really excellent venues in The Thunderbolt and The Mothers Ruin.

In June 2008 we put on our first boat cruise as a thank you party for all of our regulars. It was a memorable night - hot and sunny, everyone had a great time, and so in 2009 here we are again! There are only a few other soul nights that go afloat so you can be sure that this will be a party to remember!

Once again we will be cruising on The Flower Of Bristol - run by The Bristol Packet. There will be a bar on board, so please don't bring your own alcohol - Meet up is at "The River" (bar in the centre of Bristol next to The Watershed) at 6pm, for 6.30pm departure, returning at 10pm approx.

Music will be provided by the Getting Together DJs - Ian, Mike & Rocker - playing upbeat soul music on original vinyl. A mix of classic Northern, Motown and Rare Soul. You will be expected to dance!

Once we have docked, the party continues at The Mothers Ruin until 2am - your soul cruise ticket entitles you to free entry.

2008 was a sell out, and with just 46 places available this time we expect these to fly out! Tickets cost £15.00. Contact us ASAP to reserve your place - you can message Rocker here on Soul Source; Rocker Rosehip or Mike Shawe on Facebook; email gt@localunderground.co.uk; or contact Ian on 07808 781904.

We're already looking forward to this one!

Ian, Mike, Rocker
