Welcome return for Gary Day, who'll be playing his usual floor-filling mixture of northern soul 50s r&b and rock'n'roll. Gary's a superb DJ and has guested at GBK several times now. He's also a renowned musician, who has played with Morrissey and the New York Dolls amongst others.
As this is our Christmas party, we'll be playing songs from Phil Spector's A Christmas Gift For You album. Come and dance to Darlene Love, The Crystals, The Ronettes and many more.
A few minutes walk from Oxford Circus tube station, The Phoenix is a wonderful basement bar that's hosted soul and mod nights for the last 30 years. It's a touch bigger than our old home at the Buffalo Bar (so there'll be a bit more room to dance), has a lovely wooden dancefloor, a great sound system, and a bar serving pints at pub prices.
'This monthly club night celebrates the sounds of the Sixties, playing a variety of music genres including soul, Motown and pop, all on vinyl. Some dress in vintage to match the theme, but everyone is there for the music. The homely basement makes this event feel like an authentic 60s night out. You have to be serious about your Sixties and register as a member to get in.' - High Life magazine
