Last month was a super night and with two rooms this one looks to be even better.

The main room, again with two top DJ's, MARK FREEMAN and BARRY COOPER, supported by the resident DJ's Mark/Jason and Kev, is going to be a blast.

Over 300 in last month and it looks as though this month will be even busier with the edition of Room 2, featuring the PHIL BUSH Sounds and Pressure Ska and Reggae.

Looking forward to the night

Well we couldn't have asked for a better1st night, as evidenced by the many comments posted in lookbacks.

Just over a week until the 2nd night and this one should be at least as good. The main room DJ's have been chosen to ensure that between the 5 of them they can cover all bases with the emphasis on quality Northern dancers.

Add to that the 2nd room with the Phil Bush Sounds & Pressure Ska and Reggae and it should be a great night.

Oh I almost forgot the great venue with large sprung wooden dancefloor, cheap bar prices with 9-10 Happy Hour.

Its looking like a very good night.

Last month was fantastic and there's some great DJ's this month so should be really good.

Saw the Ska and Reggae room last year in Burton and was very impressive.

Can't wait for this night.

Cant wait. Last month; our first night at the Heritage was amasing and this time with Ska and Reggae Presure room it will be even better. Cant keep out of the presure room, it really takes you back to your youth..

Really looking forward to DJing in the Reggae room along with some very talented Ska / Reggae DJs namely Phil Bush, Brian Kelson and Jon Farmer along with the Sounds and Pressure Sound System. Hats off to Mark Johnson for taking the Soul Nite to another level, we have seen from other venues that it obviously works having the two genres of music together, so let's get out and support the efforts of people who passionately care about what you the punters want.

Lots of people stayed over last month and just to confirm the room rates:

Single including breakfast is £20

Double including breakfast is £30 or £35 for a superior room.

These rates include a £10 discount from the usual hotel rates but you must say you are attending the soul night.

The hotel reception number for rooms is 01332 206489

Looks like being another top notch night, two quality guest DJ's in the main room and the addition of room 2 with Phil Bush and co, it's got to be good.

Great crowd and fantastic atmosphere last time, this night could be even better.

Yeah another good 'un. Good set from Barry, and great to see the floor full for 'Pressure' and 'Tribute'. Mark kept the oldies crowd happy and the floor chocker, and the residents played a decent mix with a nice bit of R&B in there.

Another good night at the Derby Heritage Ballroom with almost a full house like last month. Big queue half hour before the doors opened so we started half an hour early.

Barry Cooper played a mixed set and Mark Freeman played a mostly oldies set with the dancers supporting them with a full floor throughout.They kept the dancers happy which all you can ask for.The 3 residents played a real mix, mostly oldies but with some rareties, R&B, and 70s thrown in.

The 2nd room with Ska and Reggae provided by Phil Bush Sounds and Pressure added another interesting mix. It was good to see the people who support Phil and the soul people visiting both rooms to enjoy what was on offer.

All in all another very good night and we will continue to try and improve and make Derby Heritage Ballroom a favourite night for people to visit.

Big thanks from all at Soul in Derby to everyone who came and supported us.

Blimey Mark (Freeman) that was a quick hello hardly had time to say that as well, good to see you it's been a while.

Yes really enjoyed the night, I did mix it up a bit so tried to play a bit for all, could not belive how many request's i got for last record I played.

Great venue and some great people, thanks Mark Kev & Jason for the invite, I came to the first night as a punter and I will be back again soon that's for sure.

What started as a quick hour then off for something to eat turned into strangly the oppersite.as i'm now spending more time in Derby and alway's like to muse a few grain's of sand through the old hour glass with my old chums Mark and Elizebeth it seemed a good idea to pop in and have gander.After looking for some time and in the absence of said male goose , we decided to absorbe the delight's of another east Mid's fledgling soul night's .We had missed the first one and had various reports from the Internationel rescue team that we'd missed a "good 'en" , the night itself almost became a tale of woe and we'd arranged to meet the strangely ever young Sharon and Nick from Leicester outside for some strange reason when Paula phoned to see where they were they were on the way to Chesterfield , then the A6 towards Loughboro',then outer mongolia .Mr.mark Johnson (virgil of thunderbirds fame ) drove out and "guided them in " now there's not many promotors that would do that you know poor old Mark even lost His parking space what a true Gentleman well done Mark.Well we decided to stop and stay to the end , it's a great room and sound system all the 45 spinners catered for the dance floor with a mainly oldies projection .the reggae room was bloody incredible with some great boss sounds pumping out at a rock steady pace there were no complantes from our gang .The only gripe and this is only to do with the bar was it was a long wait during happy hour which was really sad hour as after waiting over 20 minutes was told that it was too late for the two for one , Liz said it was going to be sorted out next time , good old Liz .I would give this evening a 10 out of 10 rating for value , friendlyness and music , the door staff were good lad's and had no attitude problems and treated all very well.Despite the wait during "sad hour" there was a kalidascopic array of booze at very good price's so if it's oldies you want in a relaxed joint and a good dance floor this is the place to be.By the way Nick and Sharon phoned the next day having got lost on the way back to Leicester and asked Paula the best way back from Liverpool !!!!!! till next time best regards "Brains"
