This event is now over

After the summer holidays we're back to the decks on the 7th September with very special guest dj's NIGE GRICE AND ARTHUR FENN. Also returning to the decks is local dj / record collector JOHN MERCER FROM DARLINGTON. PAUL ACKLEY BACKING UP THE PROMOTERS FOR A SPECIAL SOUL NIGHT OF ULTIMATE PROPORTIONS.

It's going to be a packer with lots of interest for this soul night and the two main dj's Arthur and Nige.

£3.00 on the door and a free cd of Arthur's records - picked randomly by me.....

7.30 pm start through to 1.00am.

Note: this is now a stripped down post-event display

It was great to see returning guest dj Nige Grice and special guest Arthur Fenn at the Rafa Club last night, Stella performance from Arthur with an hours worth of top notch records and Nige keeping things ticking along nicely. John Mercer from Darlington breaking his duck on the decks for many a year and again thanks to John for his support and efforts.

As soon as I get everyone's playlists I'll put them up here for all to wonder over.

Next month (October 5th) sees Mick H at the Rafa club for the first time and as he would say "It could get messy !!!!!". Can't wait for that one.

Regards Paul.
