Well on a really busy night on the soul calendar Grumpy Soul delivered AGAIN!!!! great turn out and an outstanding playlist that kept the dancefloor busy all night.Where else could you hear all the Magnetics biggies "count the days" I have a girl" and great to see a full floor to  "I'll keep holdin' on". Four Dynamics,grey imprint,kings of soul and quality oldies Sam + Bill the list goes on.

Biggest bonus of the night was getting there at the first attempt through Widnes and over the Widnes/Runcorn bridge RESULT!!! Look forward to the next date as ever!!!!

Fab night with people up and dancing right from the off, which made for a great atmosphere. Thanks so much for the continued support from near and far, it's so appreciated. Special mention for the lunatics from north of the border - they never miss which is amazing as it's hardly down the road. Mark, Carl, Dave and Phil - awesome as always. Bob - top knob twiddling, ooh matron. Lou, wristband application of the highest order, loved our dance at the end :thumbup:

1st April, 1st July (6th anniversary :ohmy:) and 7th October next year for more of the same.

Thanks again everyone and happy birthday Chalks xxx

We counted 50+ events listed for Saturday(just on here) so sincerethanks to the 100+ who chose to get along to our wee bash. (Hope your birthday was a belter Chalks and really glad you cut a rug down Runcorn way mate).

Great to finally get Mark behind the decks and he didn't disappoint the lad :thumbsup: Thanks as ever to the laconic Welding and twisted genius Fortnum. (Not forgetting Lou n Joan of course :ohmy:)

Always good to catch up with friends old and new and Saturday was no different with a good mix of regulars and new faces which is always encouraging, as was the truly outstanding whistling from the Scottish contingent.

Special thanks to Bob T for his help setting up and giving us the benefit where the sound was concerned. It's always pretty good I think but Saturday showed what can happen when you involve people who actually know what they're doing. Much appreciated pal.

Watch this space then for further grumpiness in 2017.

Cheers

Got there about 11pm. Told Lou and Phil that I had got lost, ( only joking ) to much laughing after my posting about directions. Stayed for a few hour's ,having not long finished a 12 shift with another 12 hours to do Sunday, wouldn't miss grumpy for anyone plus it was Chalky,s 50th . Hope you had a great night pal. Good to catch up with a few old mate's. ( thanks Ste for the record ) your a star. Heard some fabulous tunes but that goes with the territory. Can't wait for the next one. Hopefully won't be working so I can play out longer time. 

P.S.when is the next one gang ?

Soon be that time again and dead chuffed that Mark Jones is getting behind the decks for us. Great lad who has supported the night from the get go; plus he has some fine records of course.

Chalky? 50? Never! (I'm only a couple of months behind mate, but look much younger than you obviously).

Promises to be a great night.

We're all old now - Whilst in the loft searching for an old tape this weekend, I came across the attached PDF (below) with Mr Dave Weldings' name on - 1998 is heading towards 20 years ago! It doesn't seem that long since I would often chuckle to myself whenever anyone said....."Ooo that must have been 'near on' 20 year agoo Len"........('agoo' meaning 'ago' in Northants) 

........£4.00 to get in then / £6.00 now! If compared to cinema ticket prices Grumpy Soul should actually be £11.23 to get in. So folks - It's a bargain to boot! 

Len :thumbsup:

   Snakes alive Lenardo !

   Fancy you keeping that flyer, it's amazing what people re-cycle as wall paper. The word on the street is you were recently  seen entering a local Kettering Waxing Parlour to under go a Brazilian apparently following Nina's comment about how nice it was to stroke the newly acquired little reptile ! 

 well you weren't gonna let that scaly skinned little bleeder get all the attention were you!!

 P.S Never put your hand in the linen basket without first lookin' inside, and I bet your buying your daughter a recorder for christmas too !

BREAKING NEWS

Popular northern soul DJ, the effervesent Bob Hindsley has finally been persuaded by his trusty man servant Robbo to climb down from the roof of his house and call a cease to his 3 day hunger strike in protest at Channel 4's guzumping of "The Great British Bake Off" :ohmy: we'll 72 hours without an Eccles Cake is more than any son of the House Of Lancaster should be expected to forego !

While we're on the subject of Eccles Cake , Wikipedia claim Fire Brigade statistics have shown that the re-heating of Eccles Cakes in a Mircowave has  been the cause of several house explosions recently :yes: This is due to the combustibility of the high sugar content in the sticky little bleeders (and only cigarette packets are made to carry a health warning !)

Dear  Readers,please do not try this at home unless you are trying to fund a rather large vinyl purchase of the evil-bay. :wicked:

Good man Kimbo :thumbsup:

Your gonna love the cold blooded confectionery that'll be available for your delectation on the Grumpy hospitality table, :yes: that's if you can catch 'em !!!!!!!:wicked:

I've got a great story about a man killed by a low flying tortoise for you and an even better one for Len about a Mexican wall of death rider, a tattooed lady, a boa constrictor (that's a snake) and a classically trained ballet dancing vicar's grand daughter. :ohmy: oh yeah!
