Event Details

The return of the Ashton Ukrainian continues after a few fabulous nights in 2021 and we're hoping for another great installment.

If you haven't been before here's a potted history 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.

A little bird tells me there are more surprises coming up in the following months, which I'm sure will see this great event go from strength to strength.......watch this space as the saying goes 😎

A.K.A Sir Bob,

Eddie A.K.A Simon asked me to post a few tracks to whet the appetite for this special occasion so over the next few day's I'll be sifting through the playbox for possible plays, this first one Emanuel Taylor I bought for the flipside the equally brilliant "You really got a hold on me" not knowing this wonderful piece of 70's soul was hiding on the flip.

I tried to find a copy on the original Bernard label on you tube for this post but I could only find this reissue so enjoy this

Hi Mick,

Yes what a track and I never knew it came out on a 45 as well 

This is also a great record by Sammy Lee "What goes around" (not the ex Liverpool player lol)

Yes Mick I've heard it was played at the Casino, Kev Roberts once told me he played Vernon Greene "Look at me,look at me" at Wigan and it cleared the dance floor so I can only imagine what Sammy Lee did

You mentioned earlier in the thread Karmello Brooks "Tell me baby", I played it at Swinton on Boxing day and Gibby told me everytime he hears it played out somewhere he gets in touch with Karmello and lets her know. How good is that.

Looking forwards to this - haven't managed to get there yet but I'm told it's a class event and why wouldn't it be with that line up!!! Should be a great night for the dancefloor with Sir Bob and Stu alone - see you all there. Oh and Bob play this for me if you can fit it in please.

Hi Mick,

Sorry mate but I don't have Liz Verdi anymore, I think Les played it at Culcheth last time out.

On one of my few visits to Manchester's Global Records in the mid 70's Rick highly recommended this piece of soulful perfection that had just arrived in store, Skip Jackson "I'm on to you girl" and most definitely one for such a grand occasion as the Ukrainian Clubs 5th anniversary

Yes Mick, great choice still sounds brilliant.     I was just checking the play box for potential spins to fit the remit of lesser known, rare & underplayed soul and this one definitely fits the bill. Jesse Slaughter "I had a dream" what a record.
