Hitsville Northern & Rare Soul Weekender Usa

Recommended Posts

Just got back from the Florida Hitsville Weekender & wanted to thank Dave Moore & the crew for an absolutely fantastic weekend.

Brilliantly organised, intimate weekend of some the most phenominal soul music you will hear anywhere in the world.

There was not a bad record played the entire weekend by a variety of collectors & DJs from across the US & UK.

Fantastic music, fantastic people & an absolute pleasure.........................I really have to sleep now....................a better review & hopefully playlists etc later in the week.

Truly awesome weekend.

I'm absolutely shattered, but before I went to bed I had to just say. What a fantastic weekend we had at Hitsville! Quality music through out, and we met some really nice people.

A special thanks to Dave & Bev Moore for everything you did for Me, Nina & Mike throughout the weekend. You did a lovely job and the weekend was a great success. Well done to everyone.

Right, I'm off to bed.

Tommy.

Yep,

Great weekend. Am now wading through playlists, radio shows, soundfiles, pics and video and will try and put some info/revue details out as I clear my head.

Have to say a BIG THANKS to everyone who travelled though, Collectors, Dancers, Anoraks, Jason who did the sound for us (AWESOME SOUND), Resort manager (He was dancin'!!), It's the people who make the memories, and I'm sure we all took some great ones away. As for the music played by everyone.....It was that immense....it was bigger than .....my tash!! whistling.gif

Everyone's now home safe and knackered....job done guys!

Regards,

Dave

What a great weekend! If you weren't there, well, then you just don't know what missed. Nothing but great people to surround yourself with and the music was second to none. I hope it's 3 days next year! :thumbsup:

Here's another oppurtunity to thank Dave, Bev and Jason publicly for all their hard work putting this together. Hats off to you three..... :thumbsup:

Hi Mike,

Sounds like you had a great weekend mate, but I wouldn't have expected anything else with Bev and Dave at the helm. Sorry we couldn't be there this year, hopefully Dave told ou why we couldn't make it. Hopefully see you at the next one.

Regards

Alan & Judi
