Looking like we are gonna be bringing the crew up from the Midlands for this one, and I can't wait, coz its my birthday too !!!!!

Looking forward to hearing Mr Grant from the Emerald Isle, always a brilliant spot !!!

Steve, gotta say sorry for missing the last one, as other cicumstances took over. I try hard not to miss one of these special nights if I can help it these days, as the chance to hear music this ecclectic and this good on the scene these days is hard to dig up.

Absolutely loved the All-dayer we were all involved in, it was a truly magic day and night ......especially with SoulFunktion in the back room aswell. Soooooo spoilt for magical muzical choice.

Can't wait for the 7th ......and catch up with a truly 'great' bunch of like minded folks.

All the best Chris :-)

Yes indeed, looking forward to this night in a big way! 


Been far too long since we've skipped across the pond to our spiritual home of Manchester 

and this club is the perfect excuse to do so. 


Being let loose behind the decks only adds to the excitement so bring that sucker on!!!!!

Good to see you Kev.. Thanks to all the folk who took time to drop into our little soul club...The guest DJs did us proud.. As it says on the tin with a healthy mix of sounds... Always looking for DJs who like to play a free hand, us residents can fill in the gaps to get a good balance... I like to send the crowd home with a few classic cuts... Proud to be part of something like this.... Back again next month with Steve Morrisey and Paul Hicks...

Steve,Matt,Rich ....... This is a club to truly be proud of, it delivers in every sense. So rarely can you leave a venue feeling utterly pleasured by the sheer quality and variety of just good "soul music" The dance floor spoke volumes from the moment we arrived to the moment we were pushed out the door, kicking and screaming for more. Jim and Paul Grant were awesome as the guests. its always great to see our Irish buddy's .... and boy did Mr Grant deliver, EARL ENGLISH Ooooooh yessss!! Sorted ......

What can i say, totally blown away by the night and the people at this wonderful club.

The atmosphere was exactly what anyone could hope for at a soul night (and then some!). 


Back to reality today though with a bang but the journey was totally worth the pain. 


Had a brilliant night from start to finish (even early doors the place was buzzing). 


Just want to say a huge thank you for all the kind comments on here (and on the night) about my sets, i am truly humbled.

Also, big thanks to Steve, Matty & Rich for giving me the opportunity to spin a few. 

As mentioned already, keep on doing what you're doing because it certainly works!
