First learned just under a year ago about Soul Sam pencilling this one in his very busy 70th Birthday year diary...Been looking forward to putting up the bunting in my home town since! Yep..Christmas is coming early to Rushden far as I'm concerned.

Great line up for the whole night and deserves to be nice n busy as it looks to be the last soul night there, after all the hard graft that I know has gone into this venue/night over recent years by Steve, Jem, Len & Co + the numerous well known guest DJ's you've had perform there.

If it's anything like last December's I'll be very happy indeed.

Steve.

And as an extra Christmas pressy ...you are doing the opening spot :P

Thanks for asking me Jem. What an honour to be able to "warm the kit up" for everyone on this special night, not least Soul Sam! Kids are counting down sleeps to Christmas...I'm counting down sleeps to 10th December!! Local printers are already working on my "I love Soul Sam" T-shirt.

I took Nina shopping for her Christmas pressy yesterday....ended up buying some leather soled shoes for myself, much to her discust lol - Well I've took folks on here's advice....Now watch me go *rse over t*t on that dance floor!

Win, if you wear your trainers 'yule' be stuck to that dance floor as if dancing on velcro, if I wear my new shoes, I'll be like Bamby on ice! ooo dear....

Whichever, we're sure to have a great night in store, see you then.

All the best,

Len.

Which is best on the Pembo dance floor, leather soles or trainers? Trainers or leather soles? There's only one way to find out. FIGHT!

Not the best plan Lenny, buying stuff for yourself when you're with your Mrs and meant to be buying her a present, lucky for you Nina is very understanding. If I wear trainers I'll be using talc,....... I've been converted :)

Don't forget to pm me if you want to save a quid and be guaranteed admission along with a free CD! Looks like a large group are arriving at 7.30 so Mr Scotney will be busy.

Have a good one guys. I've had some great nights at the Pembo, so I hope you go out with a bang, and find a new, even better venue soon

I'd like to say 'shoes polished, shirt pressed', but I'd be lying, I prefer the hobo look :) I am however looking forward to having a bit of a jig about, until that is, the lactic acid build up and the inevitable cramp :)

Well, I don't mind being first to post a comment after this Saturday night to say a big well done to all involved in making the last night at the Pembo one to remember...Steve/Jem/Len/Dave and especially to Soul Sam and all the great people who made the effort to attend. The bar staff too, it's fair to say, did a great job.

With the "Dopson" mini-bus arriving at 7, just as Jem and I arrived to switch the lights on (or was that off! lol) and then Len having to play a few first thing as I had to nip back home for a moment, I then really enjoyed playing a few from 7.30 until 8. Thanks again for that "treat"!

Steve was up next, then Jem, Dave Vanner, Steve again, then Len.....each playing some great records and getting the dance floor busier and busier as time went by. You could almost feel the expectation in the air as Sam then got on the stage around 11.15pm and as you'd expect, he skillfully / enthusiastically played some great modern dancers alongside well known and affordable classics peppered with a good dozen "OMG" rarities (if you know what I mean!). Jem and Steve then finishing the night off with much loved sounds which are now embedded within the walls of the Pembo from the last five years.

I certainly lost myself, absorbing a good few records on the floor in front of one of the huge speakers, and I could see many others doing the same. Aching feet and some marginal temporary loss of hearing this morning .... a good sign of a VERY good night!

All the best and Merry Christmas, Steve.

Was a very good night, danced a fair bit and I'm paying for it this morning. Great to see quite a few of the 'old crowd' there, always a pleasure to watch Panch dance. Len kept trying to intimidate me all night, with his new shoes, he's very attached, at one point I think he had a request played for them...........good sets from all the DJs, and Sam was just his usual immaculate self. Big up to Nina and her sewing skills, putting together Len's Budweiser shirt from beer mats was the work of a master seamstress :) :)
