22nd 6TS Cleethorpes Weekender on     

Event Information



The longest running and best soul weekender in the world will be at it again on the 13th June for three days of mayhem and rare Northern and Modern soul sounds.

DJs will include Butch, Mick Smith, Keith Money, Mick H, Ginger, Bob Hinsley, Roger Banks, Dave Rimmer and Ady Croasdell in the main room and Terry Jones, Ivor Jones, Andy Davies, Mark Randle, Cliff Steele and Just Soul's Sean & Tats. Soul Sam will flit between the two.

The live US acts on the Saturday night will be as stupendous as ever (last year Bettye Swann) but I'm still sorting them out.

The event is legendary and the venue is a classic ballroom which oozes atmosphere. Don't miss out.

Weekend passes are £59 by cheque to 6TS Weekenders, 10 Hatfield House, 108 Gt Titchfield St London W1W 6SN or £61 PayPal to ady.croasdell@btinternet.com

The on-site accomodation has gone so you have to sort out your own. Most use Thorpe Park caravan site next door 01472 813395 http://www.haven.com/parks/lincolnshire/thorpe-park/

The 6TS Rhythm ‘n’ Soul Society is pleased as punch to announce that Sandy Wynns and Greg Perry will be our live acts at the 22nd Cleethorpes Northern & Modern Soul Weekender on June 14th 2014.

 

It will be the first time Sandy aka Edna Wright has performed her Northern Soul classics ‘Love Belongs To Everyone’, ‘I’ll Give That To You’, ‘How Can Something Be So Wrong’ and of course the forever monster sound ‘The Touch Of Venus’.  She will perform more sensuous soul sizzlers including the Modern Soul highlight ‘Oops! Here I Go Again’. Additionally there will be Honey Cone numbers from her successful career at Hot Wax/Invictus. Sandy has been at the forefront of the Los Angeles female backing singers’ scene that cut so many international hits over the past four decades. That incredible work was recently documented with reference to several of her friends and colleagues in the Oscar winning documentary 20 Feet From Stardom.

 

Many of those H-D-H period songs were written by the hugely talented Greg Perry who started out as an artist and songwriter in the Chicago and Detroit area. One of his early writing partners was friend of the 6TS @ Cleethorpes, Sidney Barnes. His 1967 Northern double-sider ‘Head Over Heels’ / ‘Love Control’ on Chess set the standard and he composed for the likes of Cookie Scott and Thelma Jones in the 60s before being recruited by Holland, Dozier, Holland for Invictus. There he composed many hits including ‘Somebody’s Been Sleeping In My Bed’ for 100 Proof, ‘Bring The Boys Home’ Freda Payne, ‘Pay To The Piper’ Chairmen Of The Board and ‘Want Ads’ for the Honey Cone.

 

Like most of the Detroit music scene in the early 70s he moved to Los Angeles; the home of his wife Honey Cone Edna Wright. He produced her 1974 RCA LP there and his own Casablanca LP and singles in 1975 and his RCA LP in 1977. Those two great albums included such Modern Soul gems as ‘Variety Is The Spice Of Life’, Come On Down (Out Of The Clouds)’, and ‘How’s Your Love Life Baby’ and a 1982 swansong for the Alfa label tacked on a Northern Soul smash ‘It Takes Heart’ to the end of an illustrious recording career.

 

After Bettye Swann’s stunning performance last year I found it tough to come up with an exciting bill for this year. I think that has now been achieved.

 

See you in June.

The England V Italy football game will be shown in the Upstairs bars with sound and on a screen in the Modern Room without sound (and a lot of people dancing around in front of you probably!). The live acts will be on at 1 am instead of midnight to allow for the footy finishing and to aid in the euphoria or the despair.

Should we have a soul source get together in the pub on Friday? I would love to say hello & put faces to avatars :D We can't really wear SS stickers :D so I've got long stripey hair, & I'll try wear my "Little Miss Detroit" T-Shirt. I say try as I don't think it fits me anymore :lol:

I think I'll be in the pub about 2.00 so I'll hunt you down, in the nicest possible way :D

Safe journeys & hope I can say hello in person
