A 'Bespoke' event designed and presented for the enthusiasts out there...now in its 2nd year.....

Collector/DJ's combining to present a somewhat 'fresh' promotion of sounds that cover the underplayed, rare,, rarely played, forgotten plus a 'shake' of the new....

It is 'out there' if you look...............

Firstly as you know we will be supporting Blesma charity in recognition of the Swinton Charity Allnighter

Secondly we are gonna use ALL the room......this is in preparation for our May Alldayer and we want to fully utilise our fab sound system in readiness

The oak dancefloor really is superb......

If you feel like being a bit adventurous and think it's time you would like to listen to some new and different tunes then this is the event to visit!

We always stay away from all the usual stuff and focus on playing the tunes that you just don't normally hear anywhere else.

  • The venue is just great with a huge wooden dance floor.
  • Reasonably priced bar and refreshments.
  • Free on sight parking the venue.
  • Disabled access.
  • Friendly atmosphere.
  • Record Sellers & Dealers Always Welcome!
  • Tea & Coffee available

Just over 3 weeks to go before our March instalment ..
.
Firstly as previously mentioned ..we are 
 gonna use ALL the room......this is in preparation for our May Alldayer and we want to fully utilise our fab sound system in readiness

NOW secondly as everyone knows we are not ones for playlists., much preferring you to hear and experience the sounds in 'realtime'..........However we did have a healthy number last time asking about some of the records played.....SO with that in mind we gonna do a 'comp CD' to enable you to take away a flavour of the type of sounds played at Our Time is Now...

A similar concept to what we do at the 3 Clubs Allnighter in the 'Dolly' Room

Shall probably do about 20/25......so if ya fancy one get in early and give me a 'nudge' !!

feel free to share with fellow enthusiasts..

Interest is building nicely

We've had a few questions from people who are thinking of attending...SO

YES we will play a broad range of soul music
YES we will play some Northern Soul 
YES we will play some you may know
YES we will play some you may have forgotten
YES we will play some you may not know
YES our DJ's are very handsome and approachable and will talk to you about the music, football, weather etc

...but

NO we won't play Frank and Al  Wilson ...sorry !

DJ's blending the expensive with the not so expensive...and dare we say..cheap !!...NO FEAR

We should remember how GOOD it is before we remember how CHEAP it is. Otherwise we'll fall into the trap of spending hundreds of pounds  on records that are designed to impress other collectors, rather than continuing to do the  thing that brought us onto the scene in the first place -buying great soul dance records.

Quote from Vanda -Soul Source

What a great night!! It was a musically enthralling education; every record except 2 was new to my ears and the night was sublime.

Thank you guys you work so hard to bring this night together, it was worth putting my big coat on and braving the weather.

See you all soon. XX

Quote from Si Robinson - Facebook

Fantastic evening, cracking tunes a real education

Shute 

Well what can one say, this venue gets better and better.  The night started slow then loads of soulies came from out of nowhere and the atmosphere started to buzz with the best soul/R&B and crossover you can hear.

Big hats off to the promotors they have got this right and if you have not experienced these nights, then you're missing out big time.  Thanks Kev & Jez for asking me to play a few tunes that never gets an airing and I really enjoyed it, as some of you know that there will be no play lists posted as you would need to go and here for yourself.

I for one cannot wait for the next night The Sneyd Arms Hotel, Tower Square, Stoke-on-Trent, These guys are putting Tunstall on the map again and it's been a long time since the The Torch closed its doors.

Keep up the good work guys and keep the scene fresh, see you all next time.

 

.......a quote from Skippy Sue

Our time is now.... Yet again a different set of music It's absolutely fantastic, Why listen to the same ones over and over again when there is so many good records simply NOT being played! Great sets by all the DJ's XX
