Ad-Lib Club "Back to the Roots" on
This event is now over
The Ad-Lib Club is a small,intimate cellar-bar 50s/60s R&B Soul club bringing the early sounds that evolved into the first mod/r&b/soul underground allnighter scene.The djs spin rare/underplayed tracks from our music policy which has the cut off year of 1966.Expect to hear Early r&b,early soul,Jamaican r&b,Jamaican Ska,Doowop,Hammond grooves,British artists influenced by black r&b.All this played out in an authentic 1823 cellar bar with thick stone walls under a manor house once belonging to Lord Beaumont.A warren of windowless underground rooms.Main room decks and lounge chill-out decks.We have to sell tickets for our events as they are always "packers" with the majority of support coming great distances.This ensures entry.We are an early start venue (due to the license for the venue)with the first djs on in both rooms at 7 o'clock (doors open 6.45 )and then through until 12.15 am.This venue is the most authentic you will find and is a true reflection of the ORIGINAL 50s/60s r&b CLUB SCENE.
