Groovin' (Episode 3) @ Rolls-Royce, Derby

Guest Derbyshire Bint

Hello everyone,

Late summer Bank Holiday weekend is only a few weeks away which can only mean it's nearly time for another two room 'mini-dayer' at Rolls-Royce in Derby. After an excellent Episode 2, we're back with this year's final event and another great line up. Episode 2 saw c.400 people through the door, creating a great atmosphere in both rooms .... Episode 3 is likely to be the same ............ hope to see lots of you there.

This time's Groovin guests are MICK H, CHRIS ANDERTON and ERROL GREEN, we were also hoping for a super-duper early doors session from one (or more) of the Bentinck Backroom Boys but other (charity) commitments means we've had to put that on hold for now. Anyway, as always the emphasis will tend towards midtempo, crossover type tunes but really you can expect a little bit of everything, particularly from regulars Rob Kay, Denmac & Kev Rodgers.

It all kicks-off at 4pm thru to 12.30am as usual, and if your tastes tend to the more traditional Northern & Motown type of stuff then the main room is the place for you, where there's another great line-up, in addition to CHRIS ANDERTON and ERROL GREEN doing early-ish spots, there'll also be contributions from LITTLE SCOTTY, GLYN SISSONS as well as regulars Keith Banks, John Poole and possibly a further 'suprise' guest.

As always it's £5 otd, there's plenty of on-site parking, it's air-conditioned, holds up to 450, hot food is available through to about 9.30 - 10.00pm 'ish and there's usually tables full of records, cd's, t-shirts & other goodies. (best to contact Keith if you want a table in the main room and either Rob Kay or myself for space in GROOVIN' ).

Cheers,

Kev

Hi Simon,

No problems mate, usual table it is, although we might rearrange the sales tables this time ....??

Chris Anderton will have all his sales stuff and what with contributions from yours truly and Rob Kay, looks like thre will be some tasty items on offer ........... still there's room for more if anyone else is interested.

Hello Mr Bentley,

Be really nice to have yours and Tracey's company again, .

I'm looking forward to it too, always interested to hear what tunes the guests will dig out - from current 'biggies' to almost forgotten gems, although, in my case there's still tons of stuff I don't know.... for example, a few weeks ago I bought Brenda Parker - Help me find a good man. The other crate-diggers around at the time, were surprised I didn't know it, but then that's part of what I like about the soul scene, there's always something "new" to hear, even if everybody else has already heard it and subsequently forgotten about it.

Take care, see you next week.

Morning all :)

Just back from setting-up ...... everything's hunky-dory.

Brand spanking new toilets in the 'chill-out lounge' between the main room and Groovin' , as well as comfy new chairs in Groovin' and a slightly different layout - we've moved the record bar to the back of the room.

Had a super-duper night at Grantham last night and looking forward to more of the same this afternoon / tonight.

Hope lots of you can make it :yes:

Take care,

Kev
