Phew! It's been a hectic three days, Lyric, Gawber WMC/ Metrodome and last night at Route 61. A surefire way to loose those extra pounds put on over Christmas lol

Did wonder how many people would turn up at the Niagara Suite as Yockie was djing at the Grange on the same night but still managed to attract a fair number of soulies, regulars and new faces. Plenty of people in from the start and it was my privelege to do the first hour playing my blend of classic and underplayed tunes, and a quick head count at the end of the evening numbered a dozen or so still dancing and reluctant to leave.

Martin and Steve didn't disappoint with their own distinctive choices of music, and guest DJ Mark Hopes kept the floor busy. What would the rest of us give for some of his records!

Good to see some survivors from the Metrodome turning up, albeit with aching legs, and to have Little John back on the scene again.

Remember, next night at this increasingly popular venue is Friday 28th January 2011, hope to see you all then.

Wishing everyone a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year. Keep Soulful.:lol:

Nothing more to add to John's words all I can do is reiterate what a great night, well done to all the crew down at the Route 61 for all their hard work in 2010 that's made this a great place to go , really looking forward to more of the same in 2011, Happy New Year to all you guys.....KTF.....:)

Bit late with this so thanks for starting the thread John.

Wasn't really sure what to expect due to all of the events in and around Christmas, but we were pleasantly surprised by the numbers.

People who had attended 3 events on the trot turned out to help create a great atmosphere and make it a really good night.

All of the residents did their bit and Mark Hopes was absolutely outstanding, with a top set of oldies and 70's which kept the dancefloor buzzing for the full hour.

All in all a great finish to whats been a really good year for Route 61!

Wishing everyone a very happy and soulful new year

Martin

What a great night, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. A little bit different from my normal type of spot but it made a nice refreshing change and one I enjoyed.

Top class venue and friendly crowd!

Well done guys and great soul night that I am sure will go from strength to strength in 2011.

Look forward to seeing you again soon.

Also thankyou to Martins Wife Kath on the Door. & to all the people who distribute flyers on our behalf,

I also give thanks to you the regulars & others who have given us there support through the year 0f 2010,

Not forgetting Jonny Wood & Willie from Barnsley for there help in previously co - promoting Route61.
