Couldn't agree more, a great night, brilliant people providing loads of laughs, and plenty of laughs about times gone by, magic sounds.

Cheers Scotty! ( oops Robbo!!), Annie and all the happy people

Got to agree.

The night had an intimate feel due to the size of the venue and the numbers of soulies almost exactly matched the size, any more and may have felt too crowded. ( the promoters would probably disagree having an eye on the financial side of putting on a nighter.)

Music policy We thought was just right for everybody.

Hopefully this venue will continue as it is well run and felt safe and secure.

Mr Rimmer played a top set despite his lack of beer, mind you I don`t know if they ran out before or after :ohmy:

Lovely atmosphere. Nice vibe going on. Shame I had to leave far too early but loved every minute.

Agree, DJ's played something for everyone.....Keeping the floor going from the very start... whistling.gif

Have to agree, great music especially enjoyed Dave Rimmer and Karl Rhodes and particularily the fantastic Matt Smart (but then im biased!) . Nice to meet everyone and am now going to bed for the week to recover!

Hi

Just like to add my thanks to all who came along and made it a top night, I don't like to single any DJ's out as they all did what was asked of them but I have to give a special mention to Matt Smart for doing a top spot at his first Allnighter and to Kiddo for just being there after the piss awful few days he had to endure.

Mr Steve Whittle making his last appearance at a NCS event before hanging up his centers, top spot from a top man.

Next one is March 25th with Robbo joining the resident line up of Phil Richards, Woody, Karl Rhodes, Kiddo, Des Parker, Steve Thomas and Andy Whitmore with guests TBC.

one more thank you to the local plod who saw fit to stop a few soulies cars on route to the nighter yes.gif one would think they had other pressing matters to attend to like.......... gun crime in brum

vinyl don't kill.........guns do!
