Plinston Xmas Get Together

Recommended Posts

:thumbsup: Let your joy be forthcoming brothers and sisters!!! At last we have secured a venue that is willing to allow us to partake of that sweet soulful wine that we all love so dear and to party like its 1999 (thanks Prince, lol)

The venue is The 4 Emblems Club, Station Rad, Letchworth, Herts (thats right next to the rail station, between the job centre and the chinese) and a straight walk down from the Plinston.

The date, and thanks Winnie for pointing out the obvious error DOH!, is FRIDAY 1st DECEMBER

Entry is by ticket only, strictly limited to 130, and doors open 7.30pm utill late, with a late bar until 12am, loads of free parking all around, record dealers welcome (but keep sales boxes to a minimum please). Email us at nh6tsmafia@aol.com to reserve your tickets now as this is gonna be sell out!!!!

DJ' on the night, spinning those soulful Northern and Modern/Crossover Soul grooves will be: SOUL SAM (the slaphead of Soul); Taffy (the Godfather of Soul); Steve Gaunori(The Guru of Soul); Pete Burton (the keeper of Rare Soul) and TheBigO (the R Soul - er hang on!!!!) Expect a night of packed dacefloor action with toons to get even Toby off his chair and out backdropping all over again!!!!!

More details to follow, spread the word and see you on the night!

* The Plinston Soul events will be back in 2007 - watch ths space!

* Winnie, mentioned the Plinston in the title so as to be sure that all the Plinston regulars etc know its our get together rather than just say its a Xmas party run by XYZ. That way I'm hoping everyone will also know what to expect in regards to sounds, people, atmosphere and so on.Hope that clears it up for you - oh and love the aviator mate, Badda Bing!

It's great you've got a venue Neil, but having Plinston in the title of the thread could lead to some confusion. :thumbsup:

The other thing I always find helpful is a date :thumbsup:

:lol: Oi! Bitch!!! NOOOOOO! And after I let you use me in that special way that Mandy wont let you unsure.gif You said you'd always love me - boo hoo!!!!

thumbsup.gif Venue is cracking, just right for a gathering of the faithful, a lot like The Ghetto! but with all dancefloor. Spoke to Sam this afternoon and bless him he's chomping at the bit to get down, as are Pete and Taffy it seems as well, and I am certain that Steve will be shortly gracing this post with his rantings as well. Roll on the 1st December!! Hoping for a Soulgate meets The Ghetto! meets the Jackmans/1-2-3 Club/Belindas/ Arabia/The 78 Soul Club and of course (drum roll please) Westbury Soul Nites!!!! Those that were there in those heady days some 25+ years ago will understand, those that weren't soon will! Can someone please bring a wheelchair for Toby if the backdrops dont work out as planned tongue.gif

wicked.gif Forgot to add that Santa has come early to the Oppegaard house and has dropped off a rather nice Olympus digital camera with, and oh my god you lot should be afraid, the facility to take 15mins of video with sound and eerything that can be uploaded straight onto the web site!!!! Expect said video to carry a warning triange and feature, among others, The Honey Monster and The Young, Toby and Mandy, Chantell stomping like a good unand what Letchworth event would not be complete without Taffy getting hammered and dancing in a rather saky manner!!!! It's coming............................ ohmy.gif

Doddy?? You've been playing your 'tears for souvenirs' cover up again haven't you. Keep telling you it's Ken Dodd, perhaps it's finally sunk in :thumbsup:

Will make a change to be pointed at, I'm usually explaining who the portly bloke dressed like one of the pirates of the carribean is, when you're about. :P

Hiya Steve looking good for our usual air guitar solos then! I'll pm you later with all the details on location etc and post same here as well. Due to Letchworth's licensing laws it looks like a 12.30 close at the club so get their early!!!!! Expect a Northern/R&B flavour with a few Modern goodies thrown in during my 7.30pm stint!!!

Winnie - first you've not mentioned my new updated aviator!!!! Why do I bother!!!! Tickets sold to date (and this is just with word of mouth and this post - the 800 mail out goes out tomorrow) is 55, which for those who failed their maths leaves 75

Ok just a quick heads up toclear up some confusion - the event is defo on, the confusion arises from the club management giving us 2 different accounts as to what was happening bu that is now sorted, the fee is paid (as of 20 mins time) and Dec 1st will be upon b4 you know it!!! Looks like it will sell-out this weekso be sure to reserve a ticket boys and girls as its a STRICT 130 limit.

She didn't flip, she's merely gone away!!!! Down to 50 tickets now

===========

witness protection eh? She went the same way as Vito, but with a little less savagery :lol: Hope you've seen last weeks episode, otherwise I've given it away :lol:

50 tickets left, looks like it's going to be full to the brim :huh:

Hi Boots, yep got your 16 but need to know who hasn't frm the regulars put some by with you as they are going fast!!! As for the pic, be glad I didn't use the one after that night (wink)

Winnie, saw last weeks cracking episode, will show you the Tony credit card Boots got me from the States at the do and this weeks final episode ends abruptly as they stopped filming due to the wage demands of the stars, hence the new sesean starting March 07 is being billed as Season 6 - part 2!

One final point, this will be a sell-out so if you put tickets by and cant make it let me know as I will be running a stand-by service (OOOOOH get us!)
