***PLEASE ACCEPT OUR MOST SINCERE APOLOGIES, THE VENUE IS UNDERGOING REFURBISHMENT AND THE PROGRAMME IS OVER-RUNNING DESPITE EFFORTS TO BE READY FOR THE 18TH SEPTEMBER - WE HAVE HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO RE-SCHEDULE, HOPE TO SEE YOU ALL THERE ON THE 16TH OCTOBER***

The return of the Ashton Ukrainian - a breath of fresh air and a chance to get a much needed injection of rare soul with DJs Chris Churm, Steve Skopek, Mick Howard & Simon Ingham.

If you haven't yet been able to attend the Ukrainian here's a potted history and a feel of the club from our very own Chris Churm:

The club was originally based at the  Dukinfield Masonic hall, starting well in January 2017  attended by around 100 guests. Resident DJs were Brian Lester, Chris Churm and Chris Penn.

The venue was great with a large dance floor  and ran until May 2017 when it moved to the Ukrainian Club, a slightly smaller venue (capacity 130) perfect the type of night we were trying to run delivering a mix of lesser known, rare and under played soul; a bit of everything.

The  first date  was June 2017 and was a  great night musically. January 2020 was the 3rd anniversary with guests Phil wainwright and Alex Jones,  respected collector/ DJs to entertain us with their fantastic collections and they were superb, and it was one of our best nights.

Following that in Feb 2020  Les Harrison (one of our regular DJs) and Geoff Stubbs of Stockport were our guests and were excellent as usual .

I must  thank Les Harrison and sue  who were at our first night in 2017 and have only missed the odd one when he has been booked to DJ at Culcheth and our dates unfortunately clashed . He has also helped us to sort the gremlins in the sound system on a few occasions.

Sadly  Brian Lester  who used to play some great tracks decided to bow out from the scene  and our other original DJ maestro Chris Penn moved to the  north east, he  will be missed ,but he has assured us he will be back to annoy us from time to time to DJ for us. .

Here is a list of some of the guys and girls that have played for us and have all taken part in the spirit of our humble Ukrainian club soul evening.

Carl and Maria Willingham, John Hillel, Dave Hall, Chris Penn, Brian Lester, Les Harrison, Derek Watmough, Ian Cunliffe,  Dave Beech, Carol Burgess, Simon Ingham, Mick Howard, Carol-Ann McCarthy, Geoff Stubbs, Geoff Buckley, Tom Dacey, John Baggaley, Dave Flynn, Les Hare, Mark Tobin, Ged Gibbons and Phil Etchells  (sorry if I missed anyone).

As we all know  in March  2020 (just as our guests  Simon Ingham and Mick Howard  were ready to  DJ for us) the pandemic struck and everything stopped but the restart will pick up where we left off and  Simon alongside Mick will be our first guests, hopefully we can bounce back .

Post pandemic the club have informed us that for the night to continue it will have to be a Saturday night event, ironically that is what we first wanted and we think could be better for everyone so keep an eye on the soul source calendar for future instalments.

We hope everyone is well and can’t wait to see you all again.

I'm honored to be invited to DJ by Chris and the team, I was soooo looking forwards to exactly that just as lockdown was announced in the UK so this adds up to a reset 18 months later!!! - WOW, what a period this has been and how I've missed getting out there on the real scene.

See you all there :thumbup:

Well not too long to go until the curtains rise on the Ukrainian Club and I for one have simply NO IDEA what to dust down from the playbox 😆

I think posting some potential plays might get the juices flowing eh Mick?

A late comer to this fantastic soul night. My first time was when Chris Penn played his farewell set. He announced at the end of his set he was playing out with the same track he started with, when he first began playing there. Then Covid struck, I was so looking forward to the next one. So here's the track he played.

:thumbup: Brilliant and one of those records that sits firmly in the "if it were rare" class - not that rarity should matter but obscurity would certainly push the value up to those dizzy heights I'm sure.

Looking at the list some class acts have appeared at the Ukrainian, which just goes to show what a quality night you can expect there - I've never been disappointed, great crowd & superb soul - NO PRESSURE eh Mick? 🤣 Better get Karen working on your playlist and god knows what I'm gonna do LOL
