Our next date will be July 25th when by way of contrast to last month We welcome three guest DJ`s who will be losing their "Dab" virginity...at least as far as DJ`ing is concerned anyway! 

Introducing the guest DJ`s for July.......

North Wales main man Phil Blacknell wowed punters at last years weekender with a stunning spot of quality soul. Phil has a collection to die for and certainly knows how to put them together. Phil`s set is much anticipated!

Ian "Geordie" Johnson has been a supporter of all things "Dab" for as long as we have been around. A well known collector and man of great taste...especially where Guiness is served! Geordie was the co-promoter of the highly regarded "Friendship" nights from a few years ago.

Paul Thrower is the promoter of the "Seriously Soulful" sessions in Bristol. A well known "Face" at almost every quality soul weekender Paul is one of the nicest guys around. Another who blew everyone away at last years Llandudno weekender,  Paul is in-demand as a DJ around Europe with recent appearances in Stockholm and Rimini on his CV.

The Event.....

If you have not visited us at "Dab" before please come along and give us a try. While we stay away from the tried and tested top 100 Northern soul classics we do play some fantastic dance-able soul music from the 60s and 70s. There is always a very positive and  friendly atmosphere with plenty of soul fans making the journey from all over the country.

The venue itself is very atmospheric and dates back to 1542.The hotel boasts a selection of real ales and even has a quality Italian restaurant attached!  Discounted rooms are available by calling the hotel directly on 01270 625283. Record dealers are also very welcome. Hope to see you there!

The Crown Hotel is now sold out of rooms for our next event on 25th July. This is for accommodation only, the event is pay on the door as always. (Someone got confused last time!).The Red Cow is also sold out.

I have listed some other options complete with a "Chris-Advisor" review of each one:

Railway Inn 01270 6234872 £35 per night, pretty basic but clean, 5 mins walk to venue. A favourite hotel of Matt Fox!

Premier Inn, Nantwich- 0871 5278782. Usual Prem Inn standard, decent pub/resturant next door. 15 mins walk to venue or 5 mins cab ride.

Cheshire Cat: 01270 623020. 5 mins walk from venue. Looks very nice. £100 special offer on Booking.com

Travelodge Crewe: Usual fair. Ok for somewhere to lay your drunken head. 20 min cab journey away.

Final offer, pitch your tent in my garden, walking distance, very cheap and great breakfast on offer the next day!

PM me if you need more info.-Thanks.
