I've never been to Crossfire, who are the DJs Ady? Obviously your good self. When you say oldies does that mean 120 mph Wigan Casino tunes or is there a variation in tempo?

Thanks Mark and Billy, think I'll give this a go, assuming I'm still alive after the boat trip and haven't fallen over the side. I was told at Phoenix Got Soul last night that the guests are Irish Greg and Dawn and Nick Brown. So a return to the halcyon days of the Dome and Scenesville.

All our records are oldies but personally don't want to hear the NS top 100 in order, they are all great records, some heavily overplayed at some venues admittedly, but en masse not my cup of tea. A mix of tempos is what I like at a nighter or soul night. And let's face it, those really fast records kill me these days, at Sean and Talita's wedding reception a few months ago I danced to I'm Lonely, I'm Troubled by the Locations, I'd been drinking wine, and had to rest afterwards. I'd never attempt that when Butch plays it at the 100 Club.

X Fire is always a great night, venue and dance floor is spot on, as with all venues nowadays, there are usually a few numpties early on spilling drinks on the floor near the bar, but they don't tend to stay long and the room is plenty big enough for the serious dancers closer to the stage.

Sound system is spot on and if you feel like a wander, there are 2 other rooms and a large area off road for a natter and and fag if you fancy.

It is right next to the Great Portland street tube station, a couple of good pubs over the road for a pre nighter drink and meet up with you mates, if you fancy a bite to eat, then Pizza express is above the venue.

Don't bother getting tickets on line, by the time you have given them all the details of your family tree and what blood group you are, after being stung with the booking fee, credit card fee and conversion to sheckles fee you only save about 50p, so get them on the door. 

Flights and train booked and i'm even bringing the Mrs

See you on Sat

Have a good time in Germany Billy !

Still trying to decide whether to drop in on this event ! 

The New years bash with Flynny was excellent !

Geoff , theres lots of variety, so the only negative would be that you can't be in all the rooms at once ! 

Anyone else going from Norwich ?

Hi Frank,

Hope you can attend. The venue is good I know, the NYE nighters there are brilliant with a dance floor that is superb. It'd be nice to see some of the 100 Club reprobates there. It's not just the music, it's your friends and the atmosphere.

Good luck Billy in Germany, don't forget your playlist.
