spot on baz, yes of absolute & paramount importance is that...IT'S LOWTON'S 15TH ANNIVERSARY AS WELL, so quality tunes covering that decade and a half, many great discoveries, a great cross-section of musical styles and fantastic memories of all the dj's who've been involved in making this place the landmark venue that it is and a fantastic tribute to the hard work that kev murphy & yourself put into establishing it right at the heart of lancashire.

...so, lets see this place absolutely rockin or in the case of february, "leapin" with soulies who know whats best!

15years, had some great nights there in the early days, not been for a very long time, looks like there could be a return on the cards. Seem to remember coming to an alldayer with a bbq in the car park at the lowton, sure it was a sunday? is that right?

Hi Harry

Many 'old faces' have re-visted Lowton over the past couple of months and commented on the atmosphere being like the early days, which can't be bad cause as you say some great nights at the Civic.

You're right about that Sunday special with the BBQ might be worth another one of those later in the year........

Apologies Ian, I never knew that, all I've ever known for that backroom was Modern, DDA, then Room with a View. I also remember (& loved) that little R&B room at the end of the long corridor.

How long did the "original" back room run for, & who deejayed in there?

If you're going on Friday I'll bend your ear about it, if you'll

allow me, it's always good to know these things. The place has a lot of history & it must hold some great memories for you

All the best

It was a lot of crossover and mid-tempo sixties,seem to remember it as an extension of the sort of stuff that was being played at the saints club.

:ohmy: Blimey don't tempt fate

I stayed in last weekend because of the pesky white stuff, and I hear there is more on the way, but fingers crossed the weather girls get it wrong this time, as I want to come out & play :thumbup: (& don't want to be building snowmen or throwing snowballs at anyone :wicked: )

Here's hoping :thumbsup:

I love the Midlands posse, even with their occasional line dance :rofl: It was great to see them again, a really nice bunch of guys, and good to see the Manchester lads joining them (not in the line dance tho :lol: )

The Modern Room was my favourite room, this time round, and if it carries on like this, you may need to start opening that special room a little earlier :wink::D

The main room was very busy with lots of people enjoying themselves. Hello Pete from Oz :wave: It was nice to meet you & I hope Mouse found his way back home without too much trouble.

Well done on another successful Lowton :thumbsup:

See you all in March :wave:
