SOUL PROVISION on
This event is now over
Soul Provision: A fine selection of Soul, Funk, R&B, Jazz & Rocksteady Reggae hosted by Jonny Crawshaw & Gumbo (Inner Circle Soul Club).
Next Date: Saturday 26 July, Normally from 6pm-11pm (but 3/4pm start if the sun’s out!)
Well, last month’s all-dayer certainly went off! What a lovely session: ten hours of great music and packed to the rafters from the off! We’ll be doing that all over again at the end of August. This month we will be a little more low-key but if the sun comes out again we’ll start a bit earlier than usual (mid-late afternoon probably), we’ll get the BBQ on the go and set up outside again. Music this month comes courtesy of Jonny Crawshaw & Gumbo with the possibility of some last minute special guests though we won’t know til the day...
About the DJs:
JONNY CRAWSHAW (Give It Some! Edinburgh / Sunday Soul Shakedown, York)
Jonny made his name in Scotland under the moniker DJRed6 where he ran a number of successful nights at Edinburgh’s legendary Bongo Club; notably his funk club, “Give It Some!”, the Scottish arm of Soul Jazz Record’s long-running Reggae session “100% Dynamite!” and “Solid Steel” on behalf of Ninja Tune. He returned to his home town of York with his young family in 2009 but regularly travels the country with his prized box of 45s. He is known for his eclectic, dancefloor friendly sets covering all bases from Funk, Soul, R&B & Jazz, through into Rocksteady Reggae and beyond.
GUMBO (The Inner Circle Soul Club, Manchester / Raw Soul Express, Newcastle)
Hailing originally from the North East though now based in Manchester, Gumbo runs "The Inner Circle Soul Club" which has gained worldwide notoriety with it's approach & dedication to Soul & Funk music, having one of the strongest teams of DJs (Gumbo, Dave Ripolles, Soul Sam, George Mahood, Phil Wainwright, Adam Leaver...) and greatest atmospheres you’re ever likely to find! He has recently taken up a new residency - “Raw Soul Express” - at Ernest, Newcastle, to add to his many residencies in and around Manchester. Gumbo works extremely hard to keep his box sounding fresh and always comes with the killers! Expect heavy beat ballads, sublime mid-tempo crossover & modern soul.

Soul Provision is a social session - toe-tapping rather than hip-shaking — and is conceived as a coming together of like-minds in this intimate gem of a pub; The Golden Ball is famed for it's historic interior and excellent selection of Ales (it is also York’s only cooperatively owned and run pub, as well as being the first pub in York to pay the living wage to all staff). If you love great music, great ale and great surroundings, this is the place for you!
Soul Provision is held the last Saturday of every month at The Golden Ball, 2 Cromwell Rd, Bishophill, York. It is Free Entry, starts from 6pm and runs till 11pm (due to the PRS licence — beer is served till 1130pm so we can all sit down afterwards and discuss the music!)
