Ukrainian Club Ashton Under Lyne Part 5

Soul Nights

Ukrainian Club Ashton Under Lyne Part 5

Hi Folks

Friday 17th November is the fifth event at what appears to be becoming a very popular night.  Feedback from those attending, and from those viewing the play lists we’ve begun to post, is really positive and we’re fortunate to be supported by a hard core of attendees with new faces trying us out every month.  Staying true to the stated music policy of 'rare and underplayed' does seem to be striking a chord with those looking for something just that little bit different from the “same old, same old”.

The address is 

The Ukrainian Club (Association of Ukrainians)

215 Stockport Road



You will almost certainly hear a few oldies, but these will generally be of the harder-to-obtain, ‘quality’ variety and all will be guaranteed OVO.  We aim to blend these rarer oldies with what we believe are equally great, but less well known, 45s.  The intention being that you (hopefully) have a great night and go home having heard a few tunes that are new to you or that you might not have heard played-out for a while.

Brian Lester and Chris Churm are planning their guest DJ roster at the time of writing and as soon as the DJs are confirmed I’ll update this post accordingly.  I may not yet know who these guests are, but bearing in mind Brian and Chris’ contacts with the best of the North West’s rare soul collectors I’m pretty confident that you’ll hear some top tunes.  As usual, Chris Churm and I will be fitting in around these guests.

The venue is just across the road from the Shell petrol station, it’s just the right size with a capacity of around 80 and has a really nice separate chill-out/lounge area.  The car park is only small, but there's plenty of parking on the residential streets behind the venue.

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

The event finishes at midnight.

Be there, be rare...or be square!

Hi Folks,

Just had confirmation of the DJ times from Brian:

8pm - 9pm - Phil Etchells (get in early...you're in for a treat from Phil)

9pm - 10pm - Chris Churm (top selections from one of the area's top collectors)

10pm - 11pm - Geoff Buckley (Geoff really knows his records and has a collection to die for)

11pm - midnight - Chris Penn (trying not to mess up the great work that everyone before him will have done)

Be there, be rare...or be square!

Hi everyone   just a quick update  unfortunately  resident dj of the ukrainian club  and top man   chris penn has informed us  that he has been ill for a few days now and  is still not feeling too good so  sadly will not be playing out this friday.

Fortunately John slipmat hillel has been drafted in at short notice and will entertain us for the final hour  with some superb tracks from his vast collection of us and uk rarities, I am sure it will be another great night of rare soul 60's and 70's considering the calibre of our guest dj's  this month  Geoff Buckley who is a well respected dj/collector and  nice guy  and Phil Etchells a local top guy who has quietly been collecting for a long time and phil dunn doing the early spot who always plays a few nice  tracks you should know but might not.

Thanks    chris churm
