This event is now over

First Saturday of the month and it's that time again - The Rafa Club's rare soul night in July features DJ's from the North East, Don Thompson - Newton Aycliffe, Steve Wilson - Teesside, David Scott - Peterlee and resident rare soul dj Paul Ackley with Katheryne Ackley - Newton Aycliffe. Filling in the spaces here and there will be promoters Paul and Ian Shoulder and kev Cowey.

The music played will follow on exactly where Colin Law and Brett Franlin left off last month - QUALITY RARE / UNDERPLAYED DANCE SOUL MUSIC.

It will be good to hear Katheryne's offerings on the night, no doubt in the same vein as Brett Franklin, pacey soul with a funky touch................

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

Looking for to my first appearance at the Rafa with the two gun slingers Don and Steve.


See you all soon, or at Bridlington in the rare room

24 hours to go and the next instalment at the Rafa will be upon us.

Local talent for sure on the 5th July, this will be as good as any of the nights we've had with travelling dj's and that says volumes for the collectors in the North East and supporters of the Rafa club soul nights.

The free Cd is an example of "Sounds of the RAFA" and includes the likes of

Bill Murphy Plus One - Aint no big thing

Four Andantes - Hipper than me

United Sounds - It's all over baby

The Hamilton Movement - She's gone

Richard Caiton - I'd like to get near you

Hopkins Bros - Shake Cheri

Grey Imprint - Do you get the message

Admirations - You left me

Marteniques - If you want to call me

Charlene & the Soul Serenaders - Can you win

Summit - Farewell - I'm leaving

Spirit of Youth - Steal away

John Harris and the Soul Sayers - Hangin' in


Parisians - The Cockroach.


Get there early for your free cd as they're very limited.

See ya there - Paul.

Thanks for the comments 60's couple???? You don't look a day over 25 Russ. The playlists will be up later this afternoon for all to see the across the board selection of music from the guest dj's - Steve Wilson, Dave Scott, Don Thompson and Kathryne Ackley with Paul Ackley and Paul Shoulder filling in the gaps. Thanks for the support people, without you there would be no alternative (RARE, CROSSOVER RnB, modern) soul night, so again - Thanks for turning up and making it all worthwhile.

Regards Paul.
