The VIADUCT SOUL CLUB REUNION - 23rd ANNIVERSARY

Event Information

After being asked by regulars of The Viaduct that I ran from 1995-2005 to arrange a reunion , I have managed to sort out the night back at the original venue on the night that would have been the 23rd Anniversary. We have 4 out of the original 5 dj's back together for the first time since.

The policy was always 100% across the board in the same room and this is what we will be doing on the night , we will only being playing tracks that were played at the venue so if you love rarities, R&B, crossover, floorfillers, 70's & 80's , crossover you know what you will get.

If this night works, plans are to do it once a year with possibly one other night either in November or Boxing day like we used to !

We start ot 7.30pm till 12.30 and you can pay on the door £6

Thanks Barry, I have been having people contact me from Lancashire, Yorkshire, North Wales & even East Anglia. Looks like it is going to be a great night of old friends meeting up in this venue that was part of you say special "North West Fabric" alongside, Saints, Dawsons,Lowton & Golbourne . We all worked together to make this area outstanding.

If we do another night later in the year .... it will be music in my opinion what we would have been playing in 2018 as oppsed to a revival.Plus as I did back in the day bringing in DJ's you don't always get in the North west ( Remember Shifty, Keith Money, Gary Spence , Capital Soul Club etc ) For this night it is all about going back to great memories ! Thanks for pestering me for 12 months to do this 😉

There will be a very limited CD available on the door for the first 10 couples through the door, then a further 40 available for a donation to "Kidney's for Life" ( Manchester Royal) in memory of our son Andrew who passed away almost exactly 6 years ago it is the charity that has supported our other son who received a transpalant in Feb 2017.

Brilliant Alan, hope to get to this. My favourite club back in the day

Thanks, there is a great buzz about this night,  sadly I have sold most of my vinyl, butI have kept some specials back . Hopefully I will have some good news about another date later in the year which will be different from the reunion it will be in keeping of what we used to do. 

I also have a Warrington carlton club, free alldayer happening in June !

Just to confirm the event is at The Viaduct in Earle Street, Earlestown , Newton Le Willows starting at 7.30 till 12.30. Please be early as we are limited to 160 this time ( we used to be allowed 200-220 and I would hate to turn any old regulars away, also you would miss some great music from Mike Walker & Steve Jones

I will do doing a feature on The viaduct this Sunday between 10pm-Midnight on my show "Groovin" on www.drystoneradio.com or 103.5FM if your in the Skipton / Keighly area. 

I will be playing the more modern tracks & stand out 70's that were so popular alongside the Oldies, rareities & R&B.

It will be a night of looking back at the tunes we played between 1995-2005 , if we do another night in Novemeber it will be forward thinking across the board with no snobbery aimed at the dancefloor but not top 500 oldies 😉 You will get R&B, Crossover ,70's, Soulful house, rareities and probably one of the top guest dj's that doesn't usually come to the north west ! ! !

Just over 2 days to go, the small number of free cd's are finished and I have done an extra 30 for a donation to Kidneys for Life at M.R.I. who looked after our son Ben during his recent illness and renal transplant.

I am also doing a few cd's of tracks from that last 13 years I have been playing at other venues but not "Northern" 

Great feedback coming from people who want to come back for the memories or visit a venue that they never went to in the past when we were christened "The Biggest Little Soul Club in the North" in a magazine article !
