Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year to all that attend this wonderful venue.   :thumbup:

 

The first two have been great nights since the re-opening of this venue which has run soul nights for many years, Looks like the love of Soul sounds at their best continues   :thumbsup:

 

The last one was up against a lot of other venues locally because of the switching of the date and the turnout was tops, Thanks for supporting and making the night what is was. Brilliant.   :hatsoff2:

Well said Tony,

 

You've summed up The Corner Pocket soul nights to a tee and 2015 is set to be even better.

Well i hope it isn't too late to wish everone again a very HAPPY NEW YEAR,

And we're back in full swing at least for the time being, as always looking forward to our event at "The Corner Pocket" and as mentioned extra record stock being taken so lots of club classics at the ready.

So having just got back home to find my potted conifer trees doing an Irish Jig around the patio due to the gale force winds that are hitting the UK at the moment, i though yeah all back to normal.

So here are a few of my selections for Northern Soul "Wind" based tunes.

The Volcanoes "Storm Warning"
Rita And The Tiaras "Gone With The Wind
The Supremes "Stormy"
Nolan Chance "Just Like The Weather" okay not the most original choice!
Bob Relf "Blowing My Mind To Pieces"
The Exciters "Blowing Up My Mind"

Well we seem to be still in the throws of some gale force weather and as Derek mentioned everything is back to normal and with only 10 days into the new year Park Hampers are hitting every television comercial break informing us about having a debt free Christmas (if i'm not mistaken their advertisement has been running from January 1st) can anyone remember when Christmas was just in December? and of course Cadbury Creme Eggs are in the shops.

index_zps33ec89f7.jpg

"How Do You Know It's Christmas? When The Easter Eggs Are In The Shops"

So it's all systems are go for next Saturday and if you really fancy a top night you can't go wrong with this event, an excellent venue with a large spacious dance floor, nice crowd, great bar prices and of course a 100% Across The Board dance floor driven music policy you can see why this night just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

So looking forward to seeing you all soon.

Russ

P.S since the new Soul Source face lift is it me or are thing not working as they should be?

Ok Everybody,
the lovely "Miss T's" done the business again, nice one Darlin, her we go......
     This is the Lookback Video from our last Soul Night at "The Pocket" here in Mexborough, fantastic sounds, fantastic night, fantastic atmosphere, full dance floor all night (check it out at the top of the page). Crackin' turnout with people travling from far & wide, loads of new faces as well as the brilliant support from our regulars.
Certain there's gonna be more of the same at our next social gathering on "Saturday the 17th of this month", enjoy the Video Folks, see who you can spot.......

Great job Miss T with the video,


As you can see this is such a fantastic venue with so many plus points "The Corner Pocket" aka "The Pocket" surely will only go from strengh to strengh and perhaps not seen on all the shots in the video but the numbers there was excellent and even more impressive due to the competition with other events on the night,

Indeed I think most of the footage was from the mid part of the night (when you were still abel to get around unhindered, that didn't half change as numbers swelled) and of course your skills Miss T are very welcome in showcasing the event...top job looking forward to seeing you Saturday.

Russ


PS glad you enjoyed the flowers

Hi Folks,
great response again to this coming Saturday's "Soul Night" down here at "The Pocket" so far, gonna be another stormer me thinks. Our Guest DJ Pete's done us some brilliant spots in the past, always plays to the dance floor & all on lovely original vinyl too.
Hope you've all had a great W/End Folks, more from Me & the rest of the Guys soon, cheers Everybody, Woody

Evening fellas,

 

Yeah as you say Woody the feedback for Saturday is all coming back with a fantastic vibe and everyone seems to be really looking forward to the first event of the year, so can we expect record numbers to be attending? I think there might be a fair chance of this happening so if you want a great night of soul that really is 100% dance floor driven you have to get down to "The Pocket"

 

At our last event you got to hear as well as a great selection of old school club favourites, Tony "A" aka Ado played a song I haven't heard played out (or even heard) since days of the Rotherham Assembley Room's (and I see Tony is now using a picture of the records label for his Soul Source site avatar) and that is the once massive high octane 100 mph Funk dancer.

 

J.J Callier's "Pusherman" from the period where Jazz Funk was making it's stamp on the world of Northern Soul, "Pusherman" is full of social comment and perhaps more poignant today than it was back then and if you've a copy in your box you've a result as replacements copies are quite easily toping the £160 mark, well done Tony a brave play that had the dance floor bouncing.
