Riversidesoul 17Th December

Posted (edited)

A big thank you to all of you who braved the weather to come to out to our Christmas and 4th Anniversary event. A good turnout with a great crowd and atmosphere. Special thanks to Dave Abbott for 2 great sets and thanks for Soul Inc, the Intention and the Cautions. Very positive feedback from the Riverside faithful Dave. He was well backed up by Sue and Des for some great sets. A lot oF people were saying that this was the best if not one of the best Anniversary events we have had. That takes some doing IMo, especially after Ronnie Walker last year.

Photos are on the website www.riversidesoul.co.uk and thanks to Sue & Martin Taylor for taking them.

I have to say Ronnie Walker last year aside that was the best Riverside event for me,not only musically but for the friendly atmosphere created by the punters from both near and far!Hand on heart maybe 30 records or more I hadnt heard before,magic!

As per usual my legs in the morning told me I had a good time! Many many thanks for your good wishes,hugs and cuddles when Sue and I danced to Sues last record Juanitta Williams Baby Boy,means a lot to us.

We've had plenty of messages apologising for not making it due to the weather - Hey guys you cant help the weather,theres always next year!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all our growing soul family and friends and see you all out and about in 2011
