Solid Hit Soul With Carl & Maria Willingham Friday 19Th Feb

Recommended Posts

Happy Newish Year to all Solid Hit Soulers hatsoff2.gif

1st Solid Hit of 2010 will be on Friday 19th February @ Shooting Star same details as last year 5quid in - 8pm to 1am. Underplayed/ Semi/unknowns/ Unreleased/ cheap & rare quality 60s Northern + current niter plays...think that covers itlaugh.gif

We're just waiting for confirmation of our guest but as usual it will be (fingers crossed) someone who doesn't DJ often (ever) in London & will bring something different to the capital.thumbsup.gif

Thanks to everyone who came to our Christmas special with the fantastic Ronnie Walker, & helping to make it a great night to finish a great year at Solid Hit.yes.gif

Thanks also to Jon Downs & Andy Killick for 2 great guest spots.

Look forward to seeing you all on 19th thumbsup.gif

Best Wishes

Dave

Cheers chapsthumbsup.gif

For our 1st Solid Hit of 2010 we welcome back our friends from the blue bit of Manchester, the brilliant Carl & Maria Willingham.

As everybody knows who has attended SHS when Carl & Maria are with us, an exceptional night of music is in store together with a packed club & electric atmosphere. If anybody disagrees may I suggest you're at the wrong night thumbup.gif

Maria played me 3 unreleased tracks down the phone recently which I imagine are extremely likely to form part of their set & are absolutely brilliant. Can't wait to hear them at Solid Hityes.gif

I'm very pleased & very grateful to Carl & Maria who are currently compiling the next edition of Carl & Marias Solid Hit exclusive CDs. These will be available to the first 3 or 4 through the door ohmy.giflaugh.gif . Of course as we get nearer 19th I should have had the time to run off a few more (around 50 hopefully) Once they have gone thats it & I won't be holding any back for people who turn up too late to claim one. Sorry but it just isn't fair to those who make the effort to get there early.

Also it's Leona's 40th & I'm sure they'll be dragging a few extra along so the likelihood is we'll be extra busy so get there early thumbsup.gif

Hope to see you there

Dave

Sorry Dave you had a bit of bad luck with dates last year, I really should have consulted you before sorting dates for 2010:laugh:

Always good to see the WoH mob down, think more people attend from that club than anywhere elsethumbsup.gif Hope you can make it mate, if not the next one is 30th April.

Here's some directions from Liverpool Street station which is only a 3minute walk from Solid Hit & some hotels should you want to stay over. The Travel lodge at Aldgate is recommended by our long distant travellers from Yorkgood.gif

DIRECTIONS

As you come out of the main entrance of Liverpool Street station onto Bishopgate, cross over & turn left past the Kentucky salmonella shop & the Police Station. 2nd turning on the right is Middlesex street with a pub on each corner, Dirty Dicks & Woodin's Shades. Turn down Midllesex Street & the Shooting Star is 50yards down on the right & we will be downstairs @ 8pm ......form a queue with no pushing !

For anybody driving there is street parking after 6.30pm right outside the pub....just don't nick the space where Mark parks with the equipment & Des lugs his piles of sales boxes from !

For anybody travelling & wanting to stay overnight please see hotel details below. We have good reports of the Travel Lodge at Aldgate which is just 5 minutes walk away although all the hotels mentioned are close by.

Travel Lodge 6-13 Chamber Street Aldgate East E1 8BL Check the Travel lodge website http://www.travelodge.co.uk for special deals & you may get something around £60

Club Quarters 7 Gracechurch Street, EC3V 0DR Standard room with breakfast £79

City Hotel 12 Osborn St E1 6TE Twin/Double £80/Triple room £105

Really looking forward to this night - I was also privileged to hear the acetates down the phone - oh boy are we in for a treat!!!

Yes I will be 40 years young on the 19th and I'm so excited to be spending it with our Manchester chums at Solid Hit and playing hostess to your most esteemed guests hatsoff2.gif

The only downside for me is that Adi is a blue as well so I'm gonna be a bit outnumbered by them......whistling.gif

February is turning out to be a fantastic month - just got back from Barcelona yesterday after playing some tunes for 'Movin On Barcelona' .....a SUPERB weekend for anyone interested in sampling the delights of the European Soul Scene. Then next week it's Joel's debut and Kitch at the 100 club and then on the 19th - the wonderful Solid Hit Soul ........PHEW!!!!!!

Spoilt aren't we???

See you there guys!!thumbup.gif

Half terms almost here and we can get ready for the trip to the fantastic Solid Hit Soul Club, Carl and i have stated many times this is one of our MOST favourite venues, djing there is a joy. Making the evening even more special is the 40th birthday of "our Kid". Carl has included on the CD some of Leona's favourites plus some other bits and pieces we hope you will enjoy.

Please let us know if you have any requests and Willibobs will make sure they are packed. Hope to see lots of you down there.

So looking forward to you coming again to SHS, you are a breathe of fresh air thumbup.gif and I always love your set so much.

Requests, would love if you could play that unknown artist track "I only Have Eyes For You" what a tune, and if you still have Lou Pride "I"m Com'un Home In the Morn'un" as I can't rememer the last time I heard that superb track out thumbsup.gif. Please.

See you soon. Sx

3Years !!!!!! Blimey time flies:sad: I'm hoping this time I won't get any requests for ghost in my horse:yes: but absolutely tremendous night Taff & i'm sure that Solid Hit will seem quite tame in comparison. Shame the Morecambe & Welsh :lamsey: lads can't make it:wacko:

Still at least i won't (hopefully) be getting somebody wandering through my bedroom at 5 in the morning using the loo & staggering out....talk about the night of the living dead:thumbup:

What we can offer is top tunes,electric atmosphere & no doubt late on my display of old man lurching embarrasingly around the dancefloor....... can't bloody wait:good::beer:

At Last !!!!!!

After a worrying few days for Carl Maria & myself the cd finally fell through my letterbox yesterdaythumbsup.gifsweatingbullets.gif

Late home so only managed a brief click through the tracks but one thing is for sure, it's another

goodie !!!! & well worth getting along early to grab your copy as only the first 50 through the door will get one (if I manage to run off 50 that is....it might only be the first 27 or somethingg.gif )

As usual it's a great mix of some well known big money items, Quality unreleased acetates, lesser knowns, the brilliant in demand Jamaican Northern Del Davies & crossing over to the dark side for Leonaohmy.gif 3 (or was it 4) 70s

Get there early grab your copy & get yer monies worth £5 for 5 hours of top quality 60sthumbsup.gif

See you there
