Fistful of Soul bows out of Broad Lane Working Mens Club on Saturday 7th July after 18 months, which we all hoped would have been much longer

:(

Martin has so eloquently pointed out in another forum the reasons behind this venue closing - like others the majority of the comittee have foresaken the needs of the comunity for the lure of a quick handout :(

It was never a palace, but for the last 7 years I have be proud to call this my soul home, and in that time have enjoyed some awesome nights in good company, even if I sometimes got a shower whilst dancing and had to wear a coat whilst playing my records - lol

The finale sees Col Kidson grace the stage as our ultimate guest and the warmth and friendliness of both residents and regulars will hopefully be there in abundance.

Hope to see you there

Keep on keeping on

Wulfie :)

I can only agree with Wulfie & JB's sentiments, a great venue gone the same way as many others ! Although it may sadden our hearts, we will bow out disgracefully, with a top mix of thumping , storming sounds of soul !

So please come and give this venue a proper send off, soulie style ! As a final note,and a quite important one at that, I'm not sure about Jb, Wulfie or Mart, but mine's a pint of Lager ! CHEERS

The weekend is approaching fast again, which normally I'd be happy about but its the last ever Fistful of Soul @ Broad Lane on Saturday so it's tinged with sadness.

Special guest is COL KIDSON, and I am looking forward to another superb night in great company and superlative sounds. :)

The last chance to savour the awesome dance floor and if I end the night without shedding a tear it will be a miracle. :(

Keep on keeping on !

no more sleeps the day is here :(

After almost 8 years of involvement at Broad Lane personally, tonight sees the final soul event to be hosted there takes place.

Just like to say a big thank you too all of those indivduals that I have had the pleasure of meeting, chatting, sharing a smoke with, drinking and dancing with over the years :thumbsup:

Amazing memories of the place, too many to list really so I'll just mention just two.

Firstly, a live appearance by Peggy March, who must have wondered ( and been blown away by ) how the hell her appearance in an overgrown shed in a Black Country village could generate such an atmosphere....

Secondly - the all girl Charity line up that gave birth to the Sunshine Girls and where Helen and Annie started their DJing :)

Countless other nights shared with lovers of our music over those years, and every one with a unique atmosphere !

That atmosphere was created by those that came through the doors, month in month out, first timers or regulars - THEY made the nights special, each and every one of them - so from me to them all - THANK YOU SO MUCH :hatsoff2:

Fistful of Soul @ Broad Lane may be gone :wink: - but my memories will be there forever !!!

Wulfie

Keep on Keeping ON !!! :thumbup:

Jeez Moldie, just when I'd settled down enough after Saturday to post a comment that video brought it all back - thanks mate - I'll be downloading that for posterity :)

What can I say ? as Helen promised, Fistful of Soul went out with one almighty BANG indeed :) :) :)

I got an inkling when we turned up at Broad Lane to find some of the soul travellers had already beaten us to it

For some it was their first visit and obviously sadly their last, but right from the start the place was buzzing with Big Al sparking life into the dance floor from his very first spin and while we were still sorting out the lights - lol :elvis:

Helen carried on in similar vein and the room just kept on filling and dance floor ever more full as old and new friends kept pouring through the door keeping Annie on her toes .

Martin took over from Helen and took us through to the very last guest at Broad Lane - Col Kidson who produced a varied and intelligent mix of tunage to fit beautifully into the atmosphere of the evening and at the end of his set was very gracious in presenting Helen and Annie with flowers thoughtfully provided by former Steward Paula - who has appreciated every night we have been at the club. Her daughter Kate is current hostess of the pint pots and so it was her that received the final floral tribute from the Fistful of Soul Crew :hatsoff2:

The last hour was filled my me before Helen and Martin came back to play 3 before END - what a climax it was :)

Thank you all so much for the support, so many faces and travellers came along to make the night what it was - and the new friends I met had a chance to savour Broad Lane at least for once

If anyone did not get a copy of the Cd then drop me a line and I will make sure you get one - they went like hotcakes very very quickly indeed - lol

Thanks to Helen Martin, Al and Annie for sharing the last 18 months as the Fistful of Soul Crew - also Tom for being the "extra thumb" :thumbup:

It's been great

Wulfie

Keep on Keeping On :)
