2015 - Polls - Top Soul Event of the Year Nominations

Recommended Posts

lets try this ...

Same as the just gone Soul Comp one the idea is just get going a bit of light hearted members soul talk with a off the cuff poll type affair

All after this time is members nominations for what they consider what was to them their very own 'Top Soul Event of 2015'

Guidelines - Please follow

Only nominate events that you were not involved running or dj-ing
One nomination per member please, make sure you give the month of the event as well

Give a reason for your choice, and try and keep it all in the xmas spirit!

eg

"The Soul Ultras Night back last August - was a great night that...etc etc'

Will count up in 7 day if all goes well 

Happy Xmas!

Some great events this year for me - don't have a problem with promoting or Djing disqualifying me!

Steve mentioned Gladys Knight -saw her at the Sage Gateshead....

Ann Sexton at the Wilton in November was superb....

Bilbao in October was as wonderful as ever - fantastic city and  a great weekend  - plus now live entertainment every year - Michael James Kirkland this year.

but the highlight for me was ....

The Ponderosa Stomp in New Orleans - 2/3 Oct - held every two years - this year included Brenda Holloway, Betty Harris, Jimmy Jules, Tony Owens, Barbara Lynn, Irma Thomas, Mable John, Roy Head and Willie Hightower - don't think I'll ever see a line-up like that again!!

Best event for me and my wife has got to be Twisted Wheel (Alter ego) Manchester. Being of that age 60+ no frills, no emphasise on playing "rare". Not many posers, a few o.a.p's reliving their youth i.e. smart suits and just a very good Sunday afternoon out. The three that stand out have been when Sean Chapman, Yocky and Mr. Taylor have guested.

Highly Recommended!!

Best event for me (and Mrs H. H) is the Leeds Central

Descending the steps in the Central is like entering a Tardis and stepping back in time.

This place OOZES atmosphere, as one guy said ".....if you could bottle the atmosphere here you would make a small fortune", this place is so nostalgic and different from the eponymous, souless (excuse the pun) events held in various hall's around the UK,............ Leeds Central, small, crammed, low ceiling small dance floor, outstanding music and DJ's ...........................................................................I just love it, if you were around in the sixties/seventies this is the place to re-kindle the memories

Can't believe there has only been 8 responses to your thread 

With 1000's of events in a year !

Either Soulies dunna go out much or there is a lot of ghost events ?

I Know there are some great soul nights i've attended but i've DJ'd in the past so cannot count in because of the rules of the thread

hi kev

yep a bit of a lukewarm response numbers wise to say the least

but was just a off the cuff sort of thing and as you say the 'not involved'  thing may have been a factor so no porbs

 

thanks to all who did pass on their nominations :thumbsup: 

 if do get a few more responses then will add up, if not then will just leave the topic as it is

cheers and thanks

Completely agree with Soap - Horse & Groom continues to set the standard for me, great event & great people both organisers and attendees.  It's a testament to the quality of the event when you see how many people regularly travel great distances to be there
