Event Information

event-14968-0-16575500-1383296063_thumb.Special pre christmas blow out with special guest dj. John Parker from the York Soul Club. John's returning to the Rafa as main guest DJ and it was exactly 12 months ago when John last appeared at the Rafa Club, that was a fantastic soul night at the Rafa Club and I'm sure this will be a bumper soul night with a sell out crowd - we've already got 70 people lined up to come to this night so we may sell tickets for this one.

Still £3.00 on the door if not a ticket show and you'll get a free cd of John's "Pick of the Pops". THE ULTIMATES IS WHAT THE RAFA HAS BEEN ADVERTISED AS THROUGHOUT 2013 AND THIS SOUL NIGHT WILL BE NO EXCEPTION.

Local DJ's to be "THE FUNK BROTHERS" Neil Taylor and Martin McAuley from Newton Aycliffe and our resident "RARE SOUL MAN" Paul Ackley. A full agenda of soul at the Rafa club for this pre-xmas Blowout, be sure to get there early to get a seat otherwise it's dancing room only........

Just managed to book Steve Davidson as a guest DJ for this soul night - not an easy man to get hold of due to soul commitments around Tyneside so Steve will add something special to the soul night alongside the other guest dj's.

Lot's of interest so get to the club early on.

Who's coming to the xmas bash - I've got the cd's made of John Parker's recent playlists and it's 25 records of the highest quality - 30 or so only on the night and first come first served.

about 20 coming from Newcastle before we get the locals in so it's gonna be busy.

Is the night going to be tickets, Paul? We've got a few people travelling for this one and need to sort out numbers if it is.

Can we have a 3am finish as well? ;-)

We'll not be selling tickets even though we've got about 60 definite so far - Let me know how many you think are coming please? I'll ask the RAFA Club how late it can go on 'till????

Missed you guys last night - It was a good night with all sorts played by local wannabees. They all done good.

I'll do a head count, maybe 20ish.... RAFA will probably be restricted by their licence but we've got some animals coming who will spend, spend, spend at the bar as long as it's open. They'll make a fortune! :-)

Gutted to missed last night, on baby sitting duty. Although Neil came round with a box of tunes, we got the decks out & he drank all my beer.
