I am so looking forward to this event , this is the ONE event that excites me so much in that it feels like you have been transported back to the Manchester soul clubs of old , where all sorts of young people dive into the delights of what was/is great dance music .

It doesn't matter how you dress , how old you are , or how you dance , what matters is that you have a bloody good time "feeling" the music in whatever way you like to express it , this is held in what is known as the "Northern Quarter" ..which is becoming the center of soul activity in Manchester today along side great pre-soulin bars and some fab eateries. Late start on this one , so pace yourself :)

So cast off your inhibitions , throw away your rule book and plunge into an event which will send you home at the end of the night with much contentment and a thirst to come again.

Its wrinkly friendly so don't feel you are too old to join in the fun.

Another fantastic night at the Black Bee and they had to turn punters away. This is a club like no other club I visit. it is impossible to describe and I would recommend that anyone who has not visited the Black Bee to check it out, in my opinion you will be pleasantly surprised

Goodness me nobody prepared us for the success that last night revealed to us , I knew Black bee would become popular but didn't think it would make the giant leap in one month , this being my second visit it was so wonderful to witness such popularity in seeing so many numbers attend.

I believe the guys had an orderly queue awaiting them when they opened at 10.30 which just kept on growing . In the end people had to wait for others to leave to gain entry.

The place was packed , and I mean heaving with a mixture of people soaking up The very unique and special Black Bee experience. I can honestly say I know of no other place that has this infectious magnetic vibe , you just have to return for more honey from the soulful pot.

I will say if you are a "traditionalist" and demand a certain amount of space maybe its not for you , this place is like those clubs used to be many years ago , "very close" you have to be tolerant in that your dance space may be small at times and learn to express yourself with a smaller dance patch.

I was dizzy with sheer delight watching those bee's buzzing around like something possessed in fact if it wasn't for Brian45 Philips catching me I think I would have been a goner lol

This place is going to be talked about in the future with much love , you can see the guys that are running it are so professional and care about what they do , they will be lasting friends for years .

I Honestly have never seen so much passion behind the decks , the guys were visibly in ecstasy sharing their much loved tunes. The guest "Dave Shaw" was also superb , my special moment was at last someone playing Eddie Floyds' Holding on with both hands , a personal fave of mine that I rarely hear played out , me and little Suey just melted with the sound :)

I think this could end up a ticket only event if the word spreads much more :)
