You are right Larry, this is the 13th Anniversary of soul at the MUNI, home of the Great British Blues Festival., and what a great venue, dubbed the lookalike to Wigan Casino complete with balcony to 3 sides and large sprung dancefloor, Artists that have appeared here include Ike Turner, Sam and Daves "Sam Moore" Edwin Starr, several times, Bobby Bland and Irma Thomas, djs such as Chris King, Terry Motown Davis, Kev Sowerby, Ginger and Roman, the full line up for the 13th anniv. will be announced shortly, as always a donation to charity will be done. cd prizes and the famous soul quiz ( sheets handed out and can be returned at the end or during the night) a charity is in the process of being chosen. The music reflects the classics from the halcyon days of soul to todays top sounds, thanks for your support, Roman. ps It has been decided that the charity event will be held at the alldayer here on September the 15th when proceeds will go to the Sam Shaw appeal the munis chosen charity, so this event will run as our normal anniversary soul night

Just to clarify the music policy, its club classics, so anything played at the wheel, Wigan, Mecca, the Motown that hit the U. K. in the 6ts, as the night progresses we hit the top Northern sounds all on original vinyl, R.

Can't believe it's almost a year since James Statham came along to the Muni's 12th Anniversary and what a good one it was, as the film clips seen to date show! Be great to do it all again Roman on it's 13th year and get our copy of the DVD to keep on keeping on!! ;-)) But before then, it's a VERY special weekend to look forward to enjoying! See you & Wendy at the Masonic tomorrow, with a lot of other soul friends to party!! K&G x

Thanks for all your support K&G, just adds to the feel of things that we are going to see you in Burnley on the 12th, my birthday does have a way of going a bit OTT, but after this probably wont need to celebrate any more, and the film of the Muni soul night has had a great reception and a few local film theatres, notably the ACE centre are going to show the film in the auditorium and then it converts to a dance hall, along with an exhibition of Tom Daceys soul photos, this could be some fun, maybe even show the film in the lesser muni during the charity alldayer (much of the credit for this goes to you Karen) on Sunday September 15th think tickets for this Muni event are flying, atb roman

Hi Pete, Graeme and I will have a supply of the Alldayer tickets on us wherever we are over the next six weeks leading up to the event, so if you want to save going through the Muni direct (I work for them at the Town Hall) jus t ask one of us for them....oh, and spread the word, if you don't mind - thanks. I will make sure we have a good supply of them for Padiham Town Hall on 31st August, as this is just 2weeks before this important event for the Muni! Cheers Karen & Graeme

Hi Pete, you shouldnt need a ticket, the hall holds over 600 and last time we had a very good night with just over 360 in, sometimes it can happen that an anniversary gets a few more in but you will be ok,
