GETTING TOGETHER TENTH BIRTHDAY PARTY @ HALO on
This event is now over
Getting Together Tenth Birthday Party - Northern Soul @ Halo, 141 Gloucester Road, Bishopston, Bristol, BS7 8BA
Saturday May 18th 2013
8pm 'til late
Amazingly it is now ten years since Getting Together's first soul event in Bristol. If you've been to one of our nights over the last decade, you'll know to expect a night of upbeat 60s Northern Soul - with a smattering of 70s, Motown, R'n'B and crossover - provided by our residents Ian Williams, Steve Harry and Rocker.
For our birthday party we are bringing back to Bristol one of our earliest guests, a man whose record collection and knowledge of soul music we can only envy - Matty. If you've not come across Matty at one of our gigs, you may know him from his own soul nights in Trowbridge, or from one of his residencies in Bournemouth or Weston-Super-Mare. He will be playing a range of sounds, from classic Northern, to Latin and modern spins. The dancefloor will be packed for this one!
Halo is a bar / restaurant, situated on the Gloucester Road, less than half a mile north of the arches. We can recommend the food. Our night is held in a separate function room with a bar, an outdoor smoking area, and of course a dancefloor. Parking is readily available outside the venue, and there's a regular bus service to / from the city centre 'til 11.45pm. It's a ten-minute walk from Montpelier railway station.
Entry is still a recession-busting £3, we'll be playing from 8pm 'til past midnight.
Since space is limited we recommend you get there early to guarantee admission!
We'll be spinning original soul vinyl. You'll be expected to dance!
Sales boxes welcome! (Just ask Ian, Steve or Rocker)Note: this is a stripped down post-event display
