The Harrogate Soul Lounge – meets the last Friday of every month starting 29 October 2021 from 8pm until Midnight; Free Entry.
Chill, Socialise and Dance to the cool soul vibe in an ambient 'lounge' setting.
Across the board soul music (from all soul genres – Soul hits, Northern, Motown, Stax, 70’s, 60’s Club and Mod Soul, Funk, Modern and the latest releases) played on the original vinyl releases (no “vintage vinyl”, boots or re issues*). We warm up before 10 with semi rare and more laid back sounds before hotting up after 10 with more familiar tunes to fill the dancefloor.
Regular spinners, all from Harrogate, are The Mad Professor (Mike Lowcock), The Dark Horse (John Postill) and Smithy, who used to run the predecessor event ‘Soulful!’. From time to time they will be joined by guest DJ’s for specialist theme nights.
This is not a standard northern soul top 500 event or a “Motown Disco” night but neither is it just for chin scratchers/ soul boffins. It’s a relaxed evening, in a comfortable venue, with dancing and great tunes for fans of all types of soul music and those who just want a great evening out. Requests are welcome and if we have it in the box we will play it.
*Music policy – A vinyl only event with 99% of tunes will be played on the original vinyl releases, which in our book means either: the very first release; the first national release of a USA record within c12 months; or the first UK (or other national) release, again within c12 months of the very first release. On rare occasions we may play contemporary legitimate (re)releases of unreleased or very rare originals and where we do we will tell you.
The Soul Lounge is situated on Robert St, opposite Waitrose, just off Station Parade about 0.25 mile from Harrogate Bus and Train stations.
