The weekend was a Tale of Two Soul do's in Birmingham; as everyone knows high profile events in the City itself are few and far between (for non-locals The Black Country (which is definitely not part of Birmingham) is a very different matter!) so this weekend was probably the peak of the year - Birmingham Town Hall Big Soul Night #4 at the iconic Birmingham Town Hall followed by Prinfest all-dayer in suburban Selly Oak. 

I was expecting this to be a nice chill-out after the previous night's Town Hall gig which (I thought) was going to be an absolute stormer but as it turned out this proved to be the better of the two events. 

I can't review the Town Hall because rather inexplicably it's not on Soul Source - perhaps part of the reason for its relative foundering? On paper that one looked great; Colin Curtis, PEP, Sonny and Spare and Sammy Dee plus others in two rooms; in practice low numbers apparently meant the second room wasn't open (a very poor show for a £12 on the door occasion!) and whilst Sammy Dee and Sonny and Spare delivered great sets the others were OK but nothing extraordinary and, as it's such a big building, you need a good few hundred to make it look anything like full. SO it was good but something of a disappointment compared to the last three.

Anyway back to Prinfest; at £7.50 on the door and a line up of 12 DJ's, great dancefloor, several other things going on too this was way better value, free parking and easy to get too as well. All-dayers are hard to sustain; got there initially at about 2pm to see the first part of the day winding down a little but caught a bit of Hitsville Chalky and some others. Returned about 6 for the main event. Won't go into the detail of it all but some great sets along the way, standouts were Lou Wood and Mark Annis (who I recognised from Mojo Workies, another fantastic South Midlands event). The last part of the evening was an absolute triumph though - Jo Prinsen, Dave Rimmer, Johnny Weston and Tony Reynolds; any of these can hold their own against the best and any one of them makes an event worth going to but stick them all together and you've got basically the 'Four Horsemen of the Soulpocalypse' 😉. Tune after tune - rare, underplayed, unexpected, you can forget Shazam for half of it but in contrast to some gigs it's certainly not a mid-tempo yawn fest. Again too much to remember, Bobby Williams was a particular highlight though. In the end Tony Reynolds went on until 12:30 but no one was complaining even though it meant I didn't get home till 1am. 

Did a few drawings but didn't finish many of them, this was one of the dancers Mick - amazing mover and, in this sketch, distinctive trousers - a winning combination.


I rarely give 5 stars - I've noticed that often reviews are by people connected with the event who inevitably give 5 stars to everything. I am trying to be objective.

Response from the promoter:

Thanks Tim for the great review  'Four Horsemen of the Soulpocalypse' 😁 lol  love it! thanks for your kind words I feel very honoured that you've included me in the company of 3 such respected DJs as Dave, Johnny & Tony! (all lovely blokes too). All the DJs throughout the day played great sets I thought :) thanks for your support, great sketch of Mick, I recognised it was him straight away (by the distinctive poses/posture not the distinctive trousers! :D ).

The fact that this was a charity do on behalf of 2 very good causes and in memory of a really nice guy makes it a stand out event.

The room and floor are excellent, the dj's all gave their time and played very good sets. The bar staff and bar prices are also very good. The music was heavy on the R&B... (Which suits me), topped up with great spells of northern soul, with smatterings of mod and reggae.... The good news being, very little motown.... Hoorah!

If myself and my wife were not dancing we were enjoying listening to the music, I don't remember a duff track.

The numbers could of been greater but there was an alldayer on close by which may of had an effect.

The music did pretty much follow the same genres as the regular events Jo Prinsen puts on and I would advise going along for a slightly different night out and to experience one of the best dance floors you can find.

Finally Jo, thank you for hosting what was a very good event. I also hope you made a lot of money along the way.

Response from the promoter:
