RAFA SOUL CLUB – JULY 4th 2015 SERIOUS SHADES OF SOUL

 SPECIAL GUEST DJ’S, Geoff Buckley (Clitheroe), Pete Fowler (Perth Australia), John Phillips (Gold Coast Australia).

Had to get there early as we knew the dj’s would be there bang on time to hear what was played to prevent hearing the same thing twice. Promoter Ian Shoulder kicking off the night.

IAN SHOULDER 7.15 – 8.00pm

RON HARRINGTON – IT HAPPENED TO ME  - HILLSIDE

WHISPERS – YOU CAN’T FIGHT WHAT’S RIGHT – DORE

THEOLA KILGORE – IT’S GONNA BE ALRIGHT – MERCURY

MAJOR HARRIS – CALL ME TOMORROW - OKEH

SUGAR & THE SPICES – HAVE FAITH – SWAN

A great start by Ian playing something different which reinforces his attitude in making people listen to great soul records that you never really hear anywhere else.  Pete Fowler from Perth Australia (former Chorley resident) was first up as guest dj and playing a quick half hour set to get things moving along. No introductions really necessary for this imposing soul DJ – here’s what happened.

PETE FOWLER – 8.00 – 8.30pm

ERNEST MOSELY - STUBBORN HEART – LA-CINDY

Peter and wife Maxine were the second couple in the place after Geoff and Margaret and we kept them busy from the start. First guest dj spot went to Peter and he started and finished as he meant to go on with classics from Buster and Eddie and Ernest Mosely with hard edged soul in between – more from him later.

Geoff Buckley from Clitheroe  was our main guest DJ and he arrived mega early with wife Margaret as Ian was playing the 4th record of his set and Geoff explained he wanted to hear everything that got played so that no repetitions took place. A nicer couple you could not wish to meet anywhere, great people, mega soul fans and a hidden DJ (for the North East) for sure.

GIL BLANDING - RULES – READY

Fantastic early set from Geoff and introducing 4 records from the night’s free cd which he compiled. We were at Bridlington last week (27th June) and by chance I met up with John Phillips from Australia and reminisced about him dj’ing at The Cumby Soul nights (a previous venture of ours) about 10 / 11 years ago and mentioned that we were running the RAFA CLUB soul nights – “I’ve heard about that place and watched the play lists – might come up for a listen”. Never mind come for a listen – bring a play box and get on the decks I said. This is what happened……….

SALT AND PEPPER – A MAN OF MY WORD – HEATWAVE

JAMES LATELY – LOVE FRIENDS AND MONEY – TEMPLE

Well, from a chance encounter we got a visit from one of the world’s top soul collectors and a dj spot to rival them all – fantastic seeing John make the journey to our small club and meeting old friends too. Next time you’re in the UK John – 1st Saturday of the month come to the Rafa Club and bring that box of records to play – anytime. Thank you.

Back to the main guest dj and Geoff Buckley with his box of tricks / 45’s.

What more can we say about Geoff – he and his missus Margaret are the quintessential rare soul fans that grace our doors each month with their presence. Thank you for your support Geoff and for the 2 sets you did plus the free cd listing which was most of Geoff’s 2 sets plus a bit more…. Just book the guy.

Final set from Pete Fowler and he’s got the bit between his teeth – GO Go Go…..

So with the Clitheroe and Chorley blokes plus Johnny from Donnie filling in most of the gaps of the mid-summer soul night it was almost all over which just left the Promoters finishing off the night and Paul Ackley had to return home early so he left his box with your’s truly and this is what I found inside…..

Special thanks go to Geoff Buckley (and Margaret) for everything they do for us and to the OZ Connection – Pete Fowler  (and Maxine) plus an impromptu appearance from John Phillips for delivering a spectacular soul sizzler at The Rafa club.

Next month is the summer sabbatical so there will be no soul night in August; next one is 5th September with very special guest Pat Bleasdale.

See you then folks…

Regards Paul.

Brilliant sets all night ,but we are used to it aren't we :)

 Was a nice surprise to bump into John Phillips again ,always good craic and a top bloke he is too !

  Not a full house but as i said on the night .. the right people turn up ,who appreciate the music on offer and to be honest , the balance on offer of mid tempo and uptempo dancers ,is enough to please any soul fan ,so you have to give credit to the promoters for always striving to keep to the programme of high quality and attention to the dancer !

Nuff said .. seeya all in September for another quality installment from the residents and the lovely lady dj and good friend  Pat Bleasdale ,she will not disappoint !
