Marrs Bar

Recommended Posts

Just a quickie to say what a great night it was. All the DJs played great spots, and it went from Wigan Oldies, through Stafford, with R & B in abundance, some Crossover, quite a few rarities, and one or two unexpected cheapies.

Hi,

I have to say I agree with all comments thus far. Last night was my first visit to the Marrs Bar and what a corking venue it is. Intimate, atmospheric, hot, sweaty, dark and laden with a tangible "fug" that just smells of Northern Soul All Niter!

The music was outstanding all night, all styles and varieties catered for and a brill, open minded dance floor was packed all night.

Loads of record dealers in attendance - no prizes for guessing where we spent half the night!! - and a great all round feel to the niter - We loved it.

Pete Robinson had kindly asked me to spin a few and it was a real treat to play what was (hopefully) a nice broad set without feeling obliged to stay within the boundaries of predictability or safe-ness.

Loads of familiar and friendly faces - an all round great night!

For those who may be interested, my playlist as follows (order of some tunes may be mixed up from actual running order....)

The Whispers Remember Soul Clock

Sam Dees Lonely For You Baby (Alt take) Acetate

Chris Towns Unit Turn To Me Port

The Metros Since I Found My Baby RCA

Jimmy Seals Yesterday Of Our Love Challenge

That Girl Is Mine William Bell C/U (Alt version to Attractions)

Al Gardner Sweet Baby Googa Mooga

Eula Cooper Let Our Love Super Sound

Mac Davis I'm Just In Love Columbia

Montclairs Unwanted Love Paula

Continental Showstoppers Not Too Young Seventy Seven

Frank and James How Long Is Forever W E Records

Stratoliners What Do You Want With My Love Federal

Barbara Lewis The Stars Kent

E J Chandler I Cant Stand To Lose You S.O.S

Gene Toones What More Do You Want Simco

J B Troy Live On Musicor

Turley Richards I Feel Alright Columbia

The Impossibles Its All Right Roulette

Barbara Carr My Mama Told Me Chess

Derek Martin (?) Flash Back Acetate

Dickie Wonder Nobody Knows Golden Triangle

Sweet Three Thats The Way It Is Decca

My alloted hour completely flew by and seemed to be over as quick as it started but I enjoyed every single minute of it. Thanks to those who danced or just enjoyed the tunes I played. Congrats to the promoters on a great Niter - I hope to be back ASAP.

All the best

Neil J :D

Neil i probably should have introduced myself, i was the bloke who asked for the Harvey Averne Dozen :thumbsup:

The best night so far at what is always a cracking nighter. The breadth of musical variety was incredible last night, from Pete Robinson's R&B section to Molly's 80s and Neil Jones across the board, Sean Chapman taking us back in time to Cleethorpes with the best oldies, and even opening with 'So Is the Sun' followed by 'Ton of Dynamite' but it all worked perfectly.

The Marrs Bar is a place where true across the board can happen because DJs are always guarenteed a near full dancefloor and the benefit of the doubt from a crowd who don't care about oldies vs. progressive, they just love soul music.

The atmosphere great as always, probably the biggest record bar outside of Stoke at a regular nighter, and that's saying something in a place as tiny as the Marrs. I spent maybe 35% dancing and 65% talking and upstairs, although you can still see the dancefloor and feel part of the nighter from there, because the of the quality of the Soul Sourcers present. Great to see everyone. It was a truly friendly atmosphere.

All in all, brilliant. If you haven't attended this nighter yet i recommend it. :D

Had a nightmare Saturday. Plans were to go to the Villa night, and stop off at the Marrs on the way home.

In the end I sat home waiting for a washing machine mechanic to come and help me pump the water from my kitchen to the drain out the back.

It was nice to keep getting texts from friends at the Marrs telling me how much fun they were having tho.

Grr

Can only add to what has been already said, this was the best Mars Bar i have been too, the music was great lots of familar faces and i had a great time, it was sad that it had to end.

I thought Dave Rimmer, Mace and Nig Brown did the best spots for me and Sean finished up the night on Anthony White 'Hey Baby' one of my top five at present and for the first time in 3 weeks i ventured to dance, after having pulled my ligaments at the recent Prestatyn weekener, this has been hell for me hearing great music and not being able to dance i have hated it.

Pete this was a truly great night and i am sure everyone attended will agree, will be back soon. :thumbsup:

Billy i will bring sweatshirt and Bob to cardiff i promise, it will be a cracking night.

Now in its 5th year and still doing the business!!! I have only missed a couple of the Marrs All Nighters and I have to agree definately one of the very best. Well done to all DJs especially the Guests Ken Onions, Mace, Neil Jones and Molly, superb dancers who are always up for anything and of course to Promoter Pete Robinson
