If its only half as good as his 60th at Allbrighton it will still be a cracking night. One for the diary and would make a fitting long.........................................................................................................................long :thumbsup: awaited first trip north to Boomerang a venue we always keep meaning to attend but never seem to have the time to fit in. Best get the hotel room booked now because I'm sure they will be in short supply for this one. :thumbup:

Guest karen b

I want to add my thanks to those of Maria,

To Sam, Marc and Arthur for all the great music they played,hatsoff2.gif

and to the lovely crowd of people who came and joined us.yes.gif

A special hello and thank you to the lady I spoke to near the end of the night who was an oldies fan who despite not

being totally onboard with what was played some of the time still took time to tell me how much she enjoyed the atmosphere

and people.wave.gif

I would love to be personal and mention all the people I hold dear to me that were in the Tavern on Saturday but as it

was all of the room I don't have the time!!!!!lollaugh.gif

Byrney, interesting slant for next time for Wendy to teach us some Salsa moves in the courtyard, Salsoul indeed!!!!!!!!!rolleyes.gif

Soul Sam was initially thrilled with your cake Malayka, but very quickly realised it was all being dished out and nothing

for him to take home,angry.gif it was delicious.

Marc told us what a wonderful time he had playing and Carina was blown away with the size of the Taverns fish and chips,

they were both unsure of the mushy peas though.wicked.gif

Nat and Cliff you were both missed, but we did manage to save some jelly rings for you, which Liz did try to sneak off with

into the minibus t'travelodge but we had an arm wrestle and I got them back......hope you enjoy.yes.gif

Geoff and Martin being first through the door and last to leave, and thanks RBman for the complement on my perfume!thumbup.gif

Till next time,

Have fun whatever you do and wherever you go,

Karen xxx

P.S Luvya too Maria x

First time I find the time to put togehter some lines about that brilliant saturday at the Canal Tavern (after I already had compiled a complete playlist the sunday after in Karens kitchen only to found it all deleleted by a computer crash a few seconds later LOL) !

Well...what can I say ? A superb night with great numbers (so I have been told and so I witnessed), fantastic music (oh Sam, oh Arthur and oh Maria!) and brilliant company! It was a wonderful experience to have been asked and to have deejayed at the Boomerang. A fabulous club indeed with so many knowlegable and friendly people enjoying the spirit we all seem to love in a fabulous atmosphere! So I thank Maria and Karen for inviting me over as well as Karen, Pete, Wesley and Marylin to allow us to stay at their home for what was a splendid weekend in the beautiful Beverly area (knwon also for extraordinary good shoe wear :D)! It was a unforeseen extra bonus to enjoy the warm hospitality of the Burke family! xx

Just the exact kind of Soulnight I enjoy.

I will put a list of my plays down as well later.




reading now that Soul Sam hadn`t had a chance to experience that beautiful cake I feel a bit guilty as he was so kind to bring a piece of that cake up behind the decks while I was enjoying my second spot :yes::ohmy: It indeed tasted delicious :yes:

Apologies for being late with my comments but just been busy.

Thanks to Karen and Maria for staging such a great soul event. Fantastic music (as usual at Boomerang) and a great atmosphere. However I'm sorry I didn't notice your perfume Karen, guess that's why Martin is so successful in chatting up members of the female sex, while I'm totally useless. The comment about us being first in and last to leave was true, guess that makes me a really sad obsessive, can't speak for Martin of course. I feel at home at Boomerang, just something about it.

I met Martin at Welwyn Garden City at about midday. He reckoned we'd take two and a half hours to get to the Thorne Central Guest House, and he was dead right. Our only stop was at the supermarket in Thorne to get a bottle of white wine and some nibbles to keep us going. After a drink and a wash and change of clothes we got to the Tavern at just past 4 pm, we were the first in with the exception of the promoters and DJs.

We'd barely sat down with our drinks (a nice pint of Hecks Pale Ale for me and a pint of Strongbow for Rbman) when Maria came over. Her words to us were: "I don't know why you guys have got here so early, no one gets here before 6." That comment has had both of us in fits of laughter ever since, still making me smile now. Maria is often inadvertently funny.

Sam was playing, most of his tunes were unfamiliar to me though I love the Sharon McMahan Maybe He'll Be Back. A very nice set to start off with and welcome everyone.

I won't go into details about each set, suffice to say they had me on my feet many times, just as I like it. Rbman and I enjoyed the music so much that we arranged to have our meal at our table

Nice to hear so many of my favourite tunes, particular thanks to Marc for playing the Springers and to Arthur for Message To Society and Feminine Ingenuity (again, lol).

Good to see so many friends there, hope to see you all again in November (if not before). I've already got the room booked at the guest house.

Thanks to everyone for a great time; and especially to Martin for doing the driving.

I've briefed Wendy. She'll be running New York Mambo Salsa lessons (on two) in the court yard but may need some Fania tunage to fuel the chaos:hatsoff2:

Byrney....were you the guy we chatted to at breakfast at the Central; Thorrne Guest House....if so hello....glad your partner enjoyed it so much.

Yeah that was me fellah, spitting bacon and sausage everywhere whilst discussing the merits of moving motown lovers to the joys of D Town, Wheelsville etc;) Good to chat with you both.
