A 'word to the wise' (if I may...).  As this is a fairly small (& some say intimate!) venue with a 'limited' capacity (of maybe 100 + a few?) can I recommend everyone gets there Nice & Early please :-) .  That way,  you'll be able to 'stake your claim' to a piece of the (compact!) dance-floor. I look forward to seeing all you 'Soul Folk' this coming Saturday.  Thanks Patch

Got one that ticks all those boxes Ade (well nearly!)

 

Eddie Kendricks "He's A Friend". Motown record probably played at The Mecca produced in Philly and a Modern favourite for me!

 

See you later all.

Thanks for including my Birthday celebrations in your great little event guys, I really enjoyed myself. I needed to let off some steam, and once again, ‘Northern Soul’ provided me with that escapism  :wink:  We have some great people ‘around these parts’, and Kimbo of course …..(A ‘Topsy’ joke there for ya)…… :D

 

……Did I really see a ‘hybrid’ Dog behind the bar, with the head of a Labrador, and the body of an Alsatian? I’m scared of Dogs anyway, so that freaked me out at first….On reflection, the different head and body worked very well together :yes: ……I’ve just read that back to myself, and am now a tad worried that it was actually all in my head - Oh deary dear :rofl:

 

Thanks again guys.

 

All the best,

 

Len :thumbsup:

Yes ,play a couple more Len ,I'll be sorted in a minute......

That was quite funny. Great fun night all round and some top soul. Just what I needed to end the summer hols.

Len...You did NOT imagine the hybrid dog....it was HUGE and just a tad scary looking, like some of the people you've introduced me to this last few years.

Ps Phil...I think I may have spotted your record box in the background on Antiques Roadshow tonight. Did you really get to meet Fiona Bruce?!
