Dave Bacon's 60Th Birthday Bash

Recommended Posts

We would just like to thank Dave for asking us to share with him his 60th Birthday. Absolutely Awsome. The 500 plus attendees show's the resept for this Gentleman. All the Dj's Alex, John, Yocky , Ian Gee, Ginger Taylor, Pete Everett, Nige Grice Kept the floor packed all night and I mean Packed. Really enjoyed the solo dancing spot by Dave I think the Birthday outfit won it for me. A perfect night was had by all . Must say Pete Everett blew me away with his spot. Thank you Dave for putting the charity buckets out to start us off at the Metrodome charity night on th 27th Feb will let you know how much shortly as we have just got back in from Metrodome.

:thumbup: Would just like to reiterate Yocky and Joy's post - What an excellent evening The Metrodome is a MASSIVE place and honestly it was packed and rightly so for a very special friend, who is truly a lovely guy and well respected. Dave did say to me that he felt very humbled that so many friends turned out and he was overwhelmed by the amount of people that attended, which just goes to show that friendships are made and respected from all over the country on the soul scene.

Have to say I loved the apron and I am sure will come in handy from time to time now you have reached the dizzy heights of 60 LOL XX If someone could load a pic or 2 up on here would appreciate a giggle again :laugh: x

I will just mention that for a 60 year old Dave is an excellent dancer not to mention fit but he really is such a nice guy so Happy 60th Birthday again Dave hope you enjoyed the evening too - Love to the lovely Rosa xxxxxxxxxxxx Keep dancing and smiling xxxxx:smile:

PS. Think the next Metrodome do is on the 27th February - Yocky can you confirm :wink: ta x thanks Nelly x

What can one say that hasnt already been said, first and foremost thank you for our invite to an outstanding evening, and Daves 60th birthday. For many years in my eyes Dave has been my Mentor to Northern soul for that i thank him. We arrived to find the place absolutely packed to the rafters, the dance floor was never empty. I have only one regret that i was ill on this night and couldnt be out on that floor, an absolute pleasure to watch all enjoy. All d.j.s were outstanding, we left about 1 45 and met Dave and Rosa on our way out i looked at Dave and for once i was lost for words its what you deserve mate and it will be always one to remeber, thanks again for this great evening. Tricky Trev Boot Carole and rest of the gang, Terry and Alex Yammy and Yvonne hope to see u soon.

Couldn't agree more,a fantastic night with Soulies coming from all points of the compass.It just goes to show the immense level of respect that so many have for Dave, one of the original Soulies. Whoever has the next birthday bash has got to go some to beat Daves do.God bless all those who turned up to celebrate at the Temple of Sir Dave.

Blood eyed Brothers of Soul attend the Birthday Boy Bacon's Bash to bring Brevity & Bonhomie to Barnsley, oh yes they did & a good time was had by all. The place was as busy as I've seen it, which is a testament to how people hold Dave in such high esteem & shows his longevity on our scene, he's a nice guy who makes me sick, why? Cos he now qualifies for winter fuel payments,can still dance circles around 99% of Soulies,still has all his own hair & looks like he can still easily fit into the trousers he purchased in 1973, Buggar!!!!!! Dave's truly a nice guy & a gent, which makes me very glad I know him. thumbup.gif

Sorry we could only stay till 11:30 but we had another Birthday bash to attend just down the road at the Citrus Rooms & I'm sure we wern't missed that much. no.gif

Take care,be safe & remember,"Come on Davy let the good times roll",

So sorry both Ash and myself missed Daves 60th birthday bash due to other commitments, it was my other halfs birthday bash that night so sadly I had to to pamper her, (I know which side my breads buttered on). I'm really pleased that everything went so well for Dave on this milestone birthday celebration, dont know about 60, with a little 'just for men', this guy could pass for 40! And he can still dance as if he was 20!!!! Dave is from S25 and has been a regular attendee at Soul Galore S25 since we began promoting the event 15 years ago, a true Soulie and all round decent bloke. Congratulations!
