Welcome to the SOUL IN THE BOWL, 2 ROOMS OF SOUL, RUSHDEN Comments sectiom

This event is now over. Look up now to read the latest reviews of this soul event



Really looking forward to visiting Rushden again and looking at the names I will be working alongside it's going to be a fab night.

 

2014 is the year to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the start of Northern Soul all dayers in the Winter Gardens where Mary Chapman built on existing local events in Grimsby and around Lincolnshire. She put together a team of DJ's who all pulled together and this was the lead up to the start of the Pier Allniters in 1975. More of this story later!

Hi Folkz,

 

Well Christmas will soon be over, and we’ll be ‘hurled’ into next year before we know it! So here are the D.J times for our next Soul in the Bowl. This event is building into something quite special, and it’s not least down to those that attend giving it their support by spreading the word.

 

Keep doing it guys, and thanks :wink:

 

All the best,

 

Len :thumbsup: (Of 'The Den')

Always a pleasure to have you down Chris, looking forward to a 'Classic Cleethorpes' spot from you mate, and be interesting to get another instalment on the Cleethorpes Story.  :thumbsup:

Do any of the D,j's have Gladys Knight's" Baby Baby dont waste my time" would appreciate a spin on the night, also old standards like Thelma Lindsey's "Prepared to love you" and Velvet Satins "Nothing compares to you" or Roy Hamilton "She make me wanna dance" cant wait for a few steps out on the floor in the new year !!!!!

Yes Len...Can't wait for this now all that festive fun is over! According to my kids Wii Fit thingy just now I'm "apparently" 6lb heavier than last time they got me on it :huh: , so once I've done my best to open the night in the big room with some choice early-doors danceable soul, I'll hopefully be working up a sweat in both rooms for the rest of the night if my legs will let me....so apologies now if I don't really speak to anyone. :D

 

Looking forward to seeing everyone and enjoying all the DJ's spots + great to see Chris Dalton back in Northants!

 

Arrrgggh the joy and pain of two rooms again!!...There is actually a "sweet spot" near the bar which is about 6ft square and where you can clearly hear what's being played in both rooms at the same time, just by turning ya head slightly left to right. Only problem (and it's a good problem) is it's usually packed with people trying to buy a drink or buy a record, or both! :thumbsup:

 

Bring it on soul brothers and sisters. Happy New Year! :thumbup:

Hi there. If you're there early on I'm pretty sure I've got the Gladys Knight LP that track is from. Love it! I'd better check with the boss though...Jem - are we allowed to sneak an early 80's dancer in the main room?! :shhh::wink: :yes: 

 

Think I have Velvet Satins too...I can't dance to it mind...too fast for me :D

Hi Chris. Happy New Year. Would love to hear more of the story on here, as I know there's bits and pieces on the web, in books and on CD comp sleeve notes etc, but nothing like hearing the odd anecdote or insight from you, or others who were lucky enough to have gone to those events back then. Me and Len far too young unfortunately....or fortunately...depending on how you look at life! :D

 

Cheers, Steve. :thumbsup:

Great to have this night to look forward to for kick-starting this year after all the food, drink and TV this last fortnight. :)

 

For anyone interested, this Tuesday night I'll be doing my best to "fly the flag" for Northants / Soul in the Bowl on Banbury Internet Radio....I think 7.30/8 until 10.30. Not too much pressure being their first guest of the year :elvis: , so go easy on me if you do go on the chat room thing on BIR website. :D  :thumbsup:

Will be picking out records from this last couple of years, what I can recall of some "Den" type tunes, some "Main Room" dancers (including some I'm told were tried and tested Cleethorpes winners in the mid 70's...thanks Jem :wink: !) and a few things in between.

 

Cheers, Steve
