Culcheth Goes Grumpy This Friday


Event Information

Event Type: Soul Night

Event Date & Time:

Event Location: no location given yet!

Event Description

Friday June 14th 2019 sees the next event at the ‘Spirit of Lowton’ night at the superb Culcheth Sports Club, a brilliant venue and an almost mini-version of the original Lowton main room, not only a great venue to recall nights at Lowton but a top place to hear the music we love! So, if you fancy hearing great records along with something a little bit different, and if you want a proper ‘soul’ night (as opposed to just a ‘social’ night with the music policy that tends to accompany such events) then Culcheth could be the venue for you.

We are pleased to announce that our main room guests on June 14 are the GRUMPY duo PHIL THRELFALL and JOAN LIVESEY, so expect some TOP QUALITY TUNAGE!

Joining Phil and Joan on the night will be Culcheth Residents KEV MURPHY, BOB HINSLEY and BAZ MALEADY

ROOM 2 will be a bit different for this Special Night and will feature DAB OF SOUL originator, DAVE LUCAS, SOUL ON THE EDGE and MECCA Affectionado JOHN TOWNEND and Man About Town and 'WRONG CROWD' regular SIMON INGHAM, with a mix of Mid-Pace, to Mecca to Modern but all simply Soulful

‘The Spirit of Lowton’ - Culcheth Continues Where Lowton Left Off

Staying true to the reputation Lowton built up over 21 years, the focus remains on rarer and underplayed records. There will be records you know and love along with the rare, less frequently played oldies (all on original vinyl…no boots here) but we’re really hoping that there will be records on any given evening that will be new to you and that hopefully, you’ll enjoy.

The ethos at Culcheth is simple:
• To feature an evening of great soul records
• To select these records with the emphasis on quality
• To play original vinyl only
• To bring you quality guest DJs

We hope that the policy at Culcheth will provide the catalyst for a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Culcheth Sports Club – The Venue

Culcheth Sports Club itself seems ideally suited for this kind of event. It has a good-sized main room with wall to wall maple dancefloor and excellent accustics, a second room, this is currently the Modern Room, with its own bar and excellent sound system and again with wall to wall, wooden dancefloor and a great ambiance and then there’s a separate chill-out/lounge area again with its own bar area.

Moving Forward

A change of venue after the closure of the iconic Lowton Civic Hall, was always going to be difficult but finding Culcheth Sports Club was a true stroke of luck, when you walk in there, you’ll know why, it’s a true ‘home-from-home’ when you remember Lowton, but dare I say it; better.
The combination of venue, music policy and two hand-picked guests in the main room per event seems to be proving popular. This year started in February at the Anniversary night, with the ever-popular Carl and Maria Willingham; Ted Massey, Soul Sam and Ginger Taylor are already booked to appear, with other great rare soul guest DJ’s, along with resident DJ’s in rotation including Lowton original Kev Murphy, Bob Hinsley, Ian Cunliffe, Robbo, Les Harrison and Simon Ingham lined up for the now bi-monthly nights, running this year in June, August, October and December

Modern Soul at Culcheth

Modern Soul was a logical choice for the second room at Culcheth. The room itself with a wall to wall wooden dancefloor, a low ceiling, its own bar and a quality sound system made it ideal for a more modern vibe. Anchored by the ‘Soul on the Edge’ team of Jem Booth and John Townend, together with regular guest Chris Box and other guests including Soul Sam, Steve Plumb and Steve Woomble, have quickly made this room a must visit venue to hear the latest modern soul 45’s coming out in the USA and UK, as well as a great and varied selection of modern soul classics from local clubs of the past like Newton Cricket Club, Cassinellis, Parkers, the Carlton, Lowton Modern Room, TSOP Prestwich and more recently, So Soulful 70’s, The Orwell, to name but a few.

Join Us for a Soulful night out

If you would like a flavour of the ‘Spirit of Lowton’ nights at Culcheth why not put it in your diary and join us on the second Friday of every other month for a soul night that continues the tradition of the great venues of the past while building for the future by showcasing the music we love.

So, not only do we have Grumpyness going on in the main room on the 14th but there's also some pretty long faces in the Alternative Room, namely Dave Lucas from 'Dab of Soul' Simon Ingham from Burys' Kenwood Suite and 'Wrong Crowd' resident and Soul on the Edge, 'Mecca' supremo John Townend, so expect everything from Low Rider to the Lovelites, so if your a tad fed up with 'Same Ol' Same Ol' this could well be the place for you on the 14th

I'll bring my usual tub of bobbins and see how it goes: a clutch of good oldies, definitely one or two LP tracks and maybe a couple of unissued things too ... ... Fear not, Joan'll have it rocking, never fails!

Definitely hope it's not a Four Tops night (It's the same old song, etc...), I hate wasting me time and money 😉

You should get a good mix at Culcheth especially with Joan and Phil on I the main room - and the backroom will no doubt have something different to offer 

Requests welcome 👍
