That left turn to get down to it seemed to only appear if you drove past it 3 times. It was like a secret knock.

That’s very kind Pete but we really just wanted somewhere to go with like minded fools to hear the stuff we wanted to hear.  Nowt fancy: no gimmicks, showing off, trying to re-write the scene or claiming to be anything special. We just wanted a decent rare soul night up here as they started to disappear.

It’s hardly rocket science mate is it; proper records all night, no d*cks  and free liquorice/ laxatives. (People keep coming back for the liquorice thankfully).

See you April cocker 👍

We're looking forward to it too! What with Dave and Steve marking their territory in a quest to impress and lure the lovely ladies of Deeside, liquorice laxatives for those that do and a dancing cat - what's not to love? 

Add to that the usual Fortnum madness, a clan of whistlers from north of the border, the odd cracker of a record in a room full of like minded folk and Bob (the butcher's) your uncle. Can't wait :thumbup:

Really looking forward to Saturday; be great to come out of hibernation and catch-up with good mates. 

On a bum note, Mr Fortnum has been struck down by housemaid's knee which means the resident's will be one down this time out. (He'll be back n barking as usual in July)

On a high note, we've managed to secure the services of GS regular and all round good egg John Hillel to step in and join Keith in guesting for us on Saturday. Like Keith, John's got some great records so expect to hear the likes of Gene Toones, Phonetics, Kings of Soul, Mixed Feelings, Betty Wilson and a whole lot more. 

Should be a cracking night.

No one gets married in Runcorn. It would have to be called common law wives of Cheshire and they're common believe you me.

This is what it says on the tin 

"We really just wanted somewhere to go with like minded fools to hear the stuff we wanted to hear.  Nowt fancy: no gimmicks, showing off, trying to re-write the scene or claiming to be anything special. We just wanted a decent rare soul night up here as they started to disappear." and thats what it did

A pleasure to attend again, a chance to say hello to people not seen for years, hear top class stuff I've not heard before and generally soak up a really good vibe. Welcoming smiles on arrival and fully operational chocolate dispenser.😁 The enthusiasm of the Grumpy team shines through it all. A great night, thank you.

We'd like to thank ... well, you know who you are and I'm cabbaged so will cut to the chase.

Double busy and beltin' atmosphere all night. Thought John and Keith were absolutely top drawer, as we knew they would be; thanks again lads! Loads of familiar and some new faces; great to see Rod, George, Derek P et al down Deeside. 

Top tip: if you want it to buzz get a load of absolute maniacs - in the BEST possible sense - down from Scotland. You lot make an unbelievable effort  every single time and, in all honesty, if absolutely no one else turned up it'd still be a bloody good night!

Cheers all. See you in July.

 

ps. Special thanks to Bob for the lift with the equipment - top man!!!

No fish drinking, but Grumpy Soul could gave a great display of the Scots givin' it a right good kick of the ball!! McLean's Sambucca stock finished, Tequila a go-go 🥃🍻🍻🥂🥃 Brilliant night - one of the best for atmosphere alone, let alone the brilliant music.

Oooooh errrrrr, that was a bit of alright wasn't it :thumbup:

Packed to the rafters with people coming in from 7.45, bloody brilliant. Keith and John were absolutely fantastic as we knew they would be, and Lord Welding of Cradley Heath was as fab as ever. Thanks to Lou for her sterling work on the door and apologies to those who no longer have hair on their arms due to Phil's lack of wristband skills :lol:

Biggest thanks of the night as always goes to you guys who make the night as good as it is. To the instant atmosphere the sizeable clan from north of the border always bring with them, to the never missers, to those who come for the first time and love it - we salute you! 

See you in July! xxx

I don't usually do the social media thing but just have to say a big thanks to Joan and Phil for having me and to all the Grumpy Soulsters for putting up with me. I loved it and we all had a great time once again. Our lot were paying homage to Shotts a little too literally (SHOTS at the bar!). I have broken another of my rules and posted my sets in the playlists section on here, as requested by Colsoul.
