Blackhearts Anniversary

Recommended Posts

:) Wow what a stunning night a wide variety of sounds from the soul scene, Mark, Kyp and Ted kept the floor busy with the variety that has become the Blackhearts trade mark! A real something for everyone night! Girl blunder and I enjoyed ourselves so much, very reminiscent of the clubs we went to in our "youf" :g:

Congratulations Mitch and Casper for a very profesional venue that pleases everyone. i really liked the card suit posters, you think of everything! :D

It seemed like some of the best dancers in the East Midlands were in attendance and showed lots of high energy and skill. Highlights for me were definitely a certain Mr Piper who showed his skills with a wry sense of humour at times! A real entertainer and crowd pleaser, I can't remember when I have laughed so much! :lol: What a star! Even messing about you are better than all the rest, brilliant!!! :thumbsup:

Also Ted Massey, no disrespect intended to other DJ's but man oh man what a great set and the dance floor was solid throughout - we should have video'd it as a lesson to DJ's every where. That's how to do it! :wicked:

Finally the best of all - meeting all those friends old and new. Truly what the scene is all about and typified by Blackhearts. If you haven't been yet pencil it in you won't be dissappointed!

the very best of Black soul music with the biggest of Hearts :thumbup:

just love you guys! :hatsoff2:

What an excellent night. The place was buzzing with like minded people all there to support and appreciate a venue run by 2 of the nicest guys on the scene. A good mixture of stuff played and a busy floor all night long which is always a good barometer as to how good a night is. Ted was a diamond amidst the quartz and played some awesome tracks - 'You Left Me' - doesn't get played enough but that makes it even more special when it is. Mitch, Casper ( Mel & Sue ) love you all and as many have already said and more will say - not broke don't fix it.

What a great night! and deservedly so. The Black Hearts team have put a lot of effort into making this venue a success and after twelve months it all culminated in a spectacular first anniversary last night. It was great to hear some of those tunes that have managed to escape the efforts of those who would make more copies available. Looking around the room it was evident that everyone was having a great time. The fact that people had travelled from far and wide just added to the atmosphere. Sheilz loves the Notts do's cause they play Kick Ass tunes!

Thanks to Mel for the cakes (I don't think Mitch was the cook). Here's to another great year of dancing with the devil! Hope to be DJing for you again soon.

All the best Dave and Sheilz
