Dukinfield Masonic Hall Soul Night (Part 6)

Event Information

Hi Folks!

I’m delighted to advise you that the sixth Dukinfield Soul Night will take place on Friday 16th June.  I can’t believe that we’ll be ½ way through the first year at The Masonic Hall!

We’re back to a Friday night event this time around, but with a little luck we’ll have a consistent night, every month for you in 2018.

DJ line up is Brian Lester, Chris Churm and I doing our level best to maintain the standards upon which the night is being built; these being to play quality tunes, on original vinyl only and blending lesser known and less frequently played records with some of the better, well-known tracks you might perhaps expect.  

Our address is:

Dukinfield Masonic Hall

62 Old Road


SK16 4EN

Doors open at 7:30pm and entrance is a quite reasonable (we think) £3.00.

The event finishes at midnight.

If you’ve been to see/hear us before then you’ll have a good idea of what to expect (and thanks for your support), but if you haven’t been able to get over to one of our events so far then please do consider giving us a try, we think you might just like it!

Hi Folks,

Apologies for posting 3 days after the event, I have been turning lobster red in the garden and it’s only my typing fingers (and a few other discrete bits) that aren’t sunburnt!

Thank you so very much to those of you who supported The Dukky on Friday.  Nice weather and the weekender did have an effect on attendance but those that turned out were treated to a feast of rare and/or underplayed soul that (in my view) would be the envy of many a soul night.  As ever, all the records were OVO.

I played for the first ½ hour with tracks that included The Accents – You Better Think Again, Little Frankie Lee – I Gotta Come Back and Roy Roberts – Got To Have All Your Love.

Dave Slater did a sterling job for us between 8pm – 9pm and it’s great to see him back on his feet after he gave us a scare a couple of months ago when he was last due to DJ at The Dukky.  Some of Dave’s selections included: Shep – I’m Sitting In, The Tempests – Out Of My Life, The Strangers – Night Winds and Channel 3 – The Sweetest Thing.

Dave’s set was the perfect hors d’oeuvres for Pete and Mike from the famous Denton Soul Club who, rather than their usual double-decking, played for 45 minutes each.  I was blown away by the records these guys played; records that mightn’t get an airing at Denton and a good few of which I’d never heard before (shame on me…the quality was sublime).  The pick of their sets for me are as follows:


Larry Atkins – Ain’t That Love Enough

The Flairs – You Got To Steal It

Willie Gee – You Left Me Standing

The First Four – Hurt Me To My Soul

Johnnie Mae Matthews – Two Sided Thing

Brice Cofield – Ain’t That Right



Ricky Allen – Cut You Loose

Willie Mallory – You Went Back (On What You Said)

Little Gigi – I Volunteer

The Impalas – Speed Up

Turnpikes – Cast A Spell

(there were a couple of other great tracks that Mike played that I'm embarrassed to say that I never knew, sadly I wasn’t quick enough to ask Mike)


Chris Churm took over at 10.30pm and as per usual delivered a blinding spot with monster tunes such as Cody Black – I’m Slowly Moulding, Terry Callier – Look At Me Now, Herb Ward – Strange Change, The Volumes – Ain’t Gonna Give You Up and Sam Dees – Lonely For You Baby.

I rounded off the night from 11.15 – midnight and thankfully managed not to b*gger things up.

Once again, many thanks for your support.  It was greatly appreciated.

Fantastic night full of great tunes starting with Dave and followed up by the other guests including my chosen tracks and Mike's great set.

Chris Churm came on then and kept the vibe going till Chris Penn's stellar set which included Soul Brothers Inc and Tommy Ridgeley within 10 minutes of each other, now that's quality!!
