....but Brett, the Irish guy only kicked up a fuss when Barry Manilow was played - the previous four hours of soul were obviously well received.:wicked:

This is a really great venue, with a nice sunken wooden dancefloor and plenty of seating - perfect for Northern (but with city centre bar prices, unfortunately). I enjoyed the variety of sounds played - as clearly advertised - and was disappointed that there weren't a few more in.

Next month sees Karl Heard playing down there, who's been playing some sets to high acclaim at several nighters recently. A good opportunity for a few more SS'ers to check out this venue and catch a DJ on top form, I think:yes:

Rich, Jamie, Brett (top dancer).... fantastic company and lots of laughs:D

Finally recovered enough from my mad birthday weekend to post on the look back.............

I thought Friday was a blinding night, i personally really enjoyed myself.

Another night of great music but more importantly, great people and enjoyment.

A massive thanks to everyone who came, but particularly to those that travelled from a far. Great to see the Brettmeister and Mr Bayley making the trip. Gary / Graham and the rest of the Keighly soul club guys, Shaun and the red bar massive.........and not to forget my awsome mates from Manchester who made the journey over.

Probably could've done with a few more in. Number hit the ton mark again, but seemingly last month we had an influx of peeps coming in later on, and that didnt happen this month. However loads in from the word go which didnt happen last month.

We'll keep working hard to get this right for sure. I for one think Leeds needs a top soul night and hope that we're it innocent.gif

Not gonna sit here as a promoter and blow the wind up the arse of our own night but i thought the music was fan bloody tastic on Friday. A top blend of everything we advertise. Not your normal run of the mill same old same old. Some rare, some underplayed, some classics, some forward thinking.............the dancefloor doesnt lie and it was rammed all night.

Seemed to be a buzz word passed on to me in most of the feedback i got on the night - REFRESHING. I'll take that anyday.

Was a pleasure to meet, an play alongside, Mr Pat Brady. An extremely nice chap indeed, and he played an awsome spot.

Also, big thanks to RICH EVANS who stepped in for a sadly missed Liam. Rich played two great spots of driving 60's soul and mod inspired RnB which had the place buzzin, a star for the future i'm sure.

I really hope you can all make it down next month. As pointed out already, the one and only Karl Heard next month!!

Cant wait.

Playlists to follow, and once again, thanks to everyone who came down

Another absolutely cracking night at That Driving Beat, there's no wonder why people are starting to travel for this!

Something for everyone due to the variety of tunes played. As Arron has already mentioned, some rare, some underplayed, some classics, but the emphasis on quality from all era's.

Really enjoyed Pat's set, would love to see his playlist. As ever Azza and Mr Buckley both played top sets. Hats off to the residents for the ability to vary their sets and play accordingly around different guest DJ's. thumbsup.gif

This month definitely build on the launch night at the new venue, and am pretty damn sure its going to get better and better as more people realise what the boys have got going on here!
