lineup and details for working mens club presents... wigan casino's dave evison on sat 1st november 2014
It is with great pleasure that I can announce that the 2nd Northern Quarter Working Men’s club will have a very special guest indeed.
As we are hosted by the Northern Soul Dance School, we thought who better to try out our moves on than a legendary Wigan Casino Dj — Dave Evison.
Dave has been Djing for 40 odd years and played at the Casino and Stoke’s Golden Torch and had a show on Piccadilly Radio back in the day. Rumour has it he has over 15,000 records at his disposal. When the Wigan Casino finally closed its doors in 1981 It was Dave who had the honour of playing the last ever record.
This is a very exciting announcement for us, his will be a great opportunity for those who have been attending the recent dance classes to show off some moves and a great introduction for those who haven’t been to a class yet.
After Dave has finished there will be a set from The Working Men’s Club residents playing Motown, Soul, Funk and Floor Shakers.
