well not long now for another weekend of all things soul. Was with Andy Powel last night at Willington and he was almost wetting himself with excitement. and so the clock ticks , each second draws us closer to Thursday for our usual night of madness with bob and the lovely Ann Snow . I have to pick Chris Fletcher up on the way so should be engaged in an excentric  and crazy journey down with northern souls Dr.Who.  And so once more the wheel turns see you all Thursday regards Sandy Richardson.

Forgive typos please, using my phone rather than a computer tongue emoticon 
Skegness weekender and where to start? I could begin with a gushing wordy review of the music, venue, promoters, value for money, DJS, committed PROPER soul fans.... but I've done that many times in the past, and somethings are a given, and ever consistent. This is Skeg, the dancers dance, that's what they've come here for, novel idea that hopefully will catch on at nighters across the country. Wierdly, they smile and appear to be enjoying themselves, almost certainly part of that feeling of belonging which prevails, but then what would you expect from an event, where the promoters Donna DeanMicheal D Cooper and David Raistrick meet you as you go in. Through the night they'll ask whether you're enjoying yourself, maybe a few other events might follow this template but that's asking a lot of northern's stand perfectly still evolvement, with the notable exception of Cleethorpes!! The most refreshing thing? There is a lack of Billy Bigbolloxity politics, Skeg clashed with another event, there was no wringing of hands, or snide digs, just acceptance that this occurs, and a willingness to try and avoid similar happening in the future. So much for not being wordy lol. 
Musically, Soul Sam, Arthur Fenn, Bob Snow, Dick Krop, Steve Guarnori,Andy Powell, amongst many others, create the "Behave, all in the same venue, at the same time" wonderment, and this really is testament to their quality that I need say nothing more on that topic.
So to the thing I really want to get off my chest. In the era of "The fast buck, and fuck the punters", a venue that actively keeps piss heads out, and shows true ethical nous. Numbers were down, couldn't be missed really, an opportunity to swell the crowd with 40 local topers would have been gleefully accepted at lesser venues, NOT HERE!!! They were turned away, we were put first, and that is the definition of ethics in my book, and one of the things that will keep me returning. This one act was so appreciated, and I can say hand on heart, that whilst we as punters chatted about the numbers, not a single person said that they DIDN'T enjoy the weekender. A lot is written about the state of the soul scene, but looking at it objectively, mostly by people with an agenda. Their own venue, their own egos are clearly in play, and IMO they are only paying lip service to the northern scene. A lot like to "be seen" at whatever flavour venue is fashionable, it's incredibly shallow, The Grand Central, Skegness is an oasis, on the arid tundra, FFS quench your thirst properly!!
Oh, I danced a lot tongue emoticon

Loved it. Especially when I went upstairs Friday night and Sam's first tune on was the Imperial C's. You cant get much better than that, for me anyway.

I would just like to thank Donna & Dave, coops & Nettie, the DJ's & everyone else involved with this wonderful event. Thanks for asking me to play a few records, I really enjoyed it. The people, the music and a lovely venue with proper dance floors, make this a not to miss weekend for us. I brought Lord & Lady Spetisbury AKA Dave & Tracey Bentley with us this time. They loved every minute of it. Was great to catch up with loads of people we don't see so often & new friends as well. . Dudley & Jayne from Cardiff, lovely to see Shaun & Lesley Fitton all top people. There's always too many people to mention, but you know who you are.

We started on Thursday at the Cats Whiskers, well what a way to start the weekend off, great tunes and a great little atmosphere. Onto Friday and I did the 1st half an hour in the room at the top and then I was on in the Balcony, well what a buzz there was in there, all the DJ'S played blinders and there were still people left right until the end. Well done everyone.

Saturday night we were in the room at the top, you couldn't wish for a better DJ line up, absolutely fantastic tunes played by them all and we were still there at the end. I can't remember the last time I danced that much, we all suffered the next day, we were all moaning coz our legs ached so much. Could of done with a rub down with a wet Kipper :).

Sunday night in the main room was a fantastic way to finish a class event like this and they even allowed me to play for half an hour, which was great. The afternoon sessions were also good, we didn't miss any.

Thanks again to everyone, what a fantastic weekend, me & Ann are still both Knackered. If you read this and you've never done Skeggy before, I promise you, that if you go, you won't be Dissapointed.

Just a last mention to my brother from another mother, Terry Wright and his lovely lady Lesley top folk :)

I will post what I played on the playlist section on here.

 

See you all in September

 

Best

Running the Skegness Weekender is the easy part......the hard bit is finding a fresh, new original way to say thank you and to show our appreciation to the continued loyalty of the crowd who attend and have supported us over the years. We really do appreciate each and every one of the fantastic comments received. This is a relatively short review as it really has all been said by everyone in their comments already; but we'd just like to add our thanks to Micheal D Cooper , my wingman Nettie, who makes the hours on the door so much fun, Jim the Doorman who helped keep the riffraff out, the fantastic team (because that's what they are - a team) of DJ's, but most of all, the friends (because that's what you all are - friends) who have continued to support us over the years and make our little Weekender by the sea the fantastic success it has become. Thank you all again, and see you soon!!! D & D xxxxx
