Friday 14th December 2018sees the last event of this year at the Ukrainian Club in Ashton-Under-Lyne. The event is on the second Friday of this month, as our more normal third Friday of the month falls a little too close to Christmas.
If you fancy hearing great records along with something a little bit different, and if you want a ‘soul’ night (as opposed to just a ‘social’ night with the music policy that tends to accompany such events) then the Ukrainian Club could be the venue for you.
Staying true to Brian Lester and Chris Churm’s original goals, the focus is on rarer and underplayed records.For a flavour of how this policy plays-out (pun intended) you can check out some of the playlists that have posted on Soul Source.You’ll undoubtedly know a lot of the records that are played, but we’re really hoping that there will be a number of tracks on any given evening that will be new to you and that you’ll love.
The aims are simple:
1)Play you an evening of great soul records
2)Select these records with the emphasis on quality
3)Play original vinyl only
4)Bring you quality guest DJs
We hope that the aforementioned aims will combine to give you a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
The venue itself seems ideally suited to host a rarer event.It has a nicely-sized room with great dancefloor and a separate chill-out/lounge area.The combination of venue, music policy and of two hand-picked guests per event seems to be proving popular.
I’ve not had the guest DJs confirmed as yet for this, but Brian, Chris or I will post the names as soon as possible.
The address is
The Ukrainian Club (Association of Ukrainians)
215 Stockport Road
The venue is just across the road from the Shell petrol station and whilst the car park is only small 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.
