OUR second event then, at Lowton Social Club, on Newton Road....another very pleasing night, as always over too quick!.
Another aspect that continues to amaze us, is how many people we are attracting from far and wide....who we simply dont recognize....good job we all speak the same language!!1f601.png😁1f601.png😁
I was reliably informed that we had a bunch of soulies with us who frequent Denton, in Manc, a place ive played a couple of times now, plus the return of the North Wales crew.
Musically, the balance was as it usually is...across the board...many thanks to Colin Dimond for another voyage into our glorious past with representations from both Golden Torch and Blackpool Mecca...always handled discerningly by the magician.
An excellent set also from Ben Owen, a guy who is making waves, not just in North Wales but the scene in general, putting together a box of quality rarities and floor fillers to match...im sure we will welcome him back.
BOB HINSLEY was his usual inimitable self, with what can only be described as a trademark set, just a little earlier up the nights proceedings...there genuinely isnt anything you couldnt want to dance to when he's on.
SO...all in all, a successful friday, ably supported by an appreciative crowd, many thanks to you all for making the effort to support us, it is gratefully appreciated.

When the definitive history of the scene is written, one name will figure highly in the chapters covering the formative years and the music played and championed by one man, that name is COLIN CURTIS. Many of the records Colin played at the venues he DJ'd at became cornerstones of the scene and the soundtrack of our lives for years to come, even the records the masses wern't ready for at the time went on to become firm favourites...join COLIN as he celebrates 50 years behind the 'Wheels of Steel', at LOWTON on FRIDAY OCT 13th and share a session of Northern Soul memories made and played by the man himself...

Just over a week to go and looking forward to the next session at our new LOWTON soul nights venue, LOWTON SOCIAL CLUB. This one is going to be a bit special with two excellent guests, complimenting each other, the 'Grand Master' COLIN CURTIS and up and coming 'Star' BEN OWEN, so most definitely the BEST OF THE OLD AND NEW. Make sure you join us next FRIDAY OCTOBER 13th for A NIGHT TO REMEMBER.

Great buzz on this... Mr C. has some tasty treats lined up, let's face it with the experience of 50 years of DJing to call on, there's gonna be some gems in there :thumbup:

ALWAYS look forward to the return of COLIN CURTIS to our Friday soul sessions, an eloquent orator, a fantastic dj and a master of dance floor participation. So many stone classics to choose from, the Torch to Mecca session is a lesson about the great venues and the myriad of stunning discoveries first played there...with Colin the arch exponent for delivering these dance floor destroyers.

its a fantastic occasion, doubly important as we celebrate his 50th year tour of the U.K., and Lowton Soul gets used to its new surroundings.

its looking to be full house, so please, get there early to guarantee your parking, seat and spot on the floor, doors open and function starts at 8:00pm - Admission: £7:00
