Recommended Posts

Will wait and see if I get paid for it ok first and then if they agree with my grading but i am usually spot on. Ill probably use some of it for the deposit on next years Torquay weekender and pay my gas bill.

What weekender is that?

Well i'm confused!!!! They say a Modern RnB room do they mean R Kelly and TuPac with a bit of 50 Cents or do they mean Mod and RnB room which would make sense or weirdly do they mean Modern/RnB room which would confuse the f*** out of me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jo are you on here can you explain???????????

A couple of people I know went this year and said it was a fantastic weekender, it certainly looks nice from that website.

I went this year and had a wonderful time, the best accomadation and food I have ever had at a weekender and the pool is massive.

The only thing that I thought did not work was putting Modern and 60ts R&B in the same room but they have told me threre will be a 3rd room next year and we have booked up already

Cheers

Ahh that explains it;o)) I did think it was a little ambitious for Jo

Just a thought though in this last year there have been a huge rise in the number of weekenders on the soul scene, now we love weekenders but they do end up being pretty bloody expensive are there too many weekenders or not enough what do you lot think??

Here's a little list off the top of my head of which we will have done 7 no wonder i look so old!!!!!

Blackpool Hilton

Prestatyn

Yarmouth Soul essence

Cleethorpes

Scarborough

Whitby

Fleetwood

Southport x 2 (?)

Birmingham Hilton

Torquay

Soul Village

Yarmouth Motown thingy

Blackpool (in the Neighbourhood)

This years LA Trip (next one 2006 in NYC)

Ooops i forgot

Rhyl

Llanddudno

and i heard a whisper about Weston Super Mare but not sure whether that is going on or not (Cookie are you there???)

Then if you start adding Rimini and Gothenberg soon every single weekend will be filled with Soul weekenders!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Theres also Skeggy John, infact theres more than one at Skeggy so I believe.I was thinking the same as you actually about the number of weekenders at the moment.

I personally prefer weekenders to anything else, followed by nighters with soul nights following up the at the rear.

Hi Johnny

I think they mean modern soul and y2k style RnB...The buzz about waiting months for an event will go with all these weekenders..Apart from Cleethorpes i have just been to Prestatyn and that keeps it special for me..There are so many soul events now that every week is a weekender to some i know but not just in one venue..
