Just got back from this cracking weekend in Folkestone! A lot of hard work must have gone into the organisation of such a large scale event and we certainly hope that it will be repeated next year? Highlights for us were the Classic 60's soul and Motown session at the Southcliffe and of course Saturday evening/night at the Leas Cliff Hall! The appearance of Kiki Dee was far to short, a good rendition of "How sweet it is" and of course "Magic Carpet Ride" ..... Great stuff! Thanks to Ann and the team, Roll on next year? Dave & Shirley

I'm heading for this! All paid. The hotel looks fab and this, for a change. I have decided not to go to Prestatyn (at this stage) next year. The rooms are freezing, and that hideous electric scenario pitiful. It will be the music that will change my mind of course and persuade me otherwise. THis is event is a first, so be interesting to see the venue, maybe meet Kiki Dee and talk Motown etc. I might get inspiration to write some songs too.......

I am sure Nige Brown won't mind us sharing this review... thanks Nige from Ann and Les

My Take on SOUL GALORE WEEKENDER attempt 2 !!!!!

Soul Galore Takes US on a Soulful Magic Carpet Ride !!!!

First of all it has to be said,,,, Massive well done to Ann Taylor and Les Csonge for putting together it HAS to be said bloody fantastic Soul Weekender !!

One thing i have to say,, on a personal level,,, i cant get over how Great the Staff were at each Hotel and Venue!!,,Nothing seemed to much trouble whatsoever!!,,, Particullaly at the main Venue up on top,,, they were so curteous and helpfull!!

From a DJ point of view ,,, ALL the equipment in Every Room we played in was a Really High Standard everything worked and the Sound Quality was superb in all rooms we were involved in,,, there was even Mineral Water provided ,,, great touch its hot on those Stages!!!

The Acts!!

SouLutions,,, Each time they where on i was DJing in another room but Steve Lee and Louise Mehan and good friends of Carms and myself and weve seen them perfprm a few times and i just know they will have rocked the house,, and we managed ro have a chat on friday night anyways !! 

Kiki Dee ,,,,, WOW!!!!! i have to admit a year or so ago when i agreed to be a part of this,, i thought Kiki to be a very unusual choice for a headliner,,, so i was very intersted to see how the lady would go down at a Soul Festival..... KIKI DEE was absolutley INCREDIBLE,,, PERIOD!!
Her voice is STILL fabulous,, she was word perfect,, and was such a lovely person,,, when she High Fived me coming back for her Encore she actual said to me "Thank you SO much",,, i was beaming from ear to ear!!!
She came off stage into the crowd and danced with the guy in the Top Hat,,, Wonderful stuff!!,,, She really did send her NEW SOUL FAMILY away happy!!

Well said, I totally agree with Nige

Ann & Les did a great job on this weekender, well promoted and I loved all the venues, which offered something different in each. Great cross section of music and the main venue was just awesome for the nighter. So much history- pure class, this venue really did hit the spot. Great to see Kiki Dee , Snake Davis and all. Would have liked to have seen Soulutions, another time maybe, too much to do too little time:) well done to everyone involved in making this a weekend to remember!
