As a special treat to round up the weekend we have rented out a bar in Camden & asked our friends (whom we know have a box full of delectable goodies) to come and join us behind the decks for a Soulful Sunday knees-up!

So far we have the Masters of Soul trio, Leona, Yann & Naoko... Swiss Soul Brother Raphi Gruenig & the man from L.A, Mr. Greg Belson, all confirmed to serve up tasty platters on what will hopefully be a sunny afternoon!

The venue (Zensai Bar) has a great dance floor and is located close to Camden tube. They will have food & drinks offers to compliment our needs after a weekend of partying.

We hope to see you all down there... only 2 weeks to go now!!!

His regular all-nighter SOUL CITY at the club 'Bahnhof Ehrenfeld' is now in its third year championing 50s/60s R’n’B, 60s/70s funky, rare & northern soul"

Advance - £5, On The Door - £8

We chose to price the tickets this way to attract an interested crowd to pack the place and deter the strollers walking in, makes for a little more leg room when trying to get down to your favorite tune. Tickets are still left for this Saturday and I would advise purchasing them in advance. Please contact us via PM or email innercitysoulclub@gmail.com

See you Saturday!  :thumbsup:
