Wilton's Soulful Sessions + Boxy's 70th Birthday Bash on

This event is now over

Wilton's Soulful


Saturday 19th March 2016

(Boxy's 70th Birthday Bash - Plus a few others)

Another Soulful Night at the Wilton

Guest DJ's - Soul Sam - Tim Brown - Roger Banks - Colin Law - Arthur Fenn                  Mike Charlton - Tom Dacey - Boxy

To answer the might be's from the earlier flyer you might have read:

There will be some food laid on. The event will run from 8.00PM - 4.00AM. There will be NO admission charge because it's me birthday (Unless you want to donate). No live acts this time but plans for November 19th are ongoing. But I'm sure it will be another fantastic night at the Wilton.

Hey! it's not only my birthday celebration:  Alison H - Howard E - Chuddy - Michelle J - Daryl S are also joining in the fun and celebrating theirs. It's gonna be one big "PARTY"

I have also heard that Arthur & Colin will be giving golf lessons sometime during the night, so keep your head down!!!

And before I forget, there will be some great records played on the night from a fantastic line up of DJ's.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

I would like to thank you all for making my 70th birthday bash something I will remember always.

Sunday night saw me in tears reading all the wonderful comments you wrote in my cards and presents.

It's only times like this that you really know how much your friends think about you, and how much people appreciate the work involved in promoting events like the Wilton. 

I have been involved in the UK soul scene on and off for 50 years, and still love the buzz I get out of it when an event is a success.

Thanks to Val for making it happen and providing a fantastic buffet, and the DJ's on the night for putting together perfect sets to suit the mixed crowd that attended; not always easy, but they all did a fine job.

A quick shout for Alison - Thanks for the big 70, its still floating about in our conservatory.

Thanks for all the presents, they weren't necessary but gladly received.

Hope all the other birthday guys had a wonderful time at the Wilton as I did, bacon sandwiches and all.

A quick reminder (I'm promoting again!!)  Next Soulful Sessions date is on Saturday November 19th with another Southern soul legend Mr Richard Caiton and our fantastic support band PUSH. Hope to see you all there to give this guy a great welcome with a capacity crowd.

All the best to you all

Dave & Val

Hey Boxy

Do you mean this balloon ?

Thank you for letting me & others join you in your birthday celebrations,  It really was kind of you to let us share your limelight.

Musically it was spot on, I do enjoy the Soulful Sessions, but the gritty Northern played on the night catapulted me back to the early 90's, was a welcome return and had me reeling and squealing!!

Loved it, loved it, loved it, LOVED IT!!!!

Will post the rest of the photos in the Gallery & Email them to you also.

Take care & bye for now
