The penultimate soul night of the year at The Rafa Club in Aycliffe and we’re getting ready for the big xmas bash, so to get things moving in the right direction Steve Wilson agreed to be guest dj and to set the tone for the 20th December soul night.  Here’s how it all panned out.

Not the busiest night we've seen at the RAFA but with Eddie Holman live at Easington,John Howard's big 60th bash up the road, we knew that.

Still a very enjoyable night of top quality music from all dj's and good Craic with top friends.

A plus point being more room for me to dance!

Roll on the 20th of this month, for what promises to be another very busy Xmas special :)

P.s Dancing to job opening twice in the last seven days.. How spoilt are we!

I used to love reading playlists too,but they are nothing compared to being in a room, hearing them belting out, one after the other, over a loud system...and a floor full of dancers lost in the moment... Aye, nothing quite like it :)
