It's promoted by a lovely man from Los Angeles called Erik (mr soulsatisfaction)

and Passes are $65 (which work out quite cheap at the moment due to the exellent exchange rate) and they are allnighters

There's four of us going (found some reasonable flights)

going to be fantastic

We're planning on going out a week earlier for a holiday, and judging by the interest that was shown by some of my mates there may well be quite a few planning to do this as well.

hello all. to answer your question, I've known about this event for a few months now. I found out through some other web site about it...and just as i've ranted on before in previous posts, no one, but NO ONE has contacted me about it beforehand or asked me to be a part of it. This is what I was talking about with the states being so apathetic and clique-ish about everything. It would be different if I were some total dick and nobody liked me-that would be understandable, but clearly not the case here. I've got no enemies.

But hey, what do I know? With a top-notch collection and twenty years professional DJing and a firmer grasp on northern soul than many other Americans, what purpose could I possibly serve at a do like that? whistling.gif

But I will most definitely be there for the dream team of deejays lined up. It would be foolish of me to miss that one. I'll at least be along as a punter. I'll be looking forward to the quality.

I asked Eric about this last week and this was his reply

Right now we're planning on going all nite long. Probably until 7am. I

still have to get everyone on the same page and help me work out a

schedule. We're hoping to have at least 2 bands that will go on at

midnite each nite. It's going to be quite a task working out a

schedule. From previous experience, I'm told by the promoter that the

Europeans will stay up all nite long because of the time difference.

They should have no problem dancing until 7am.

I think one of the band is Frank popp (but i'm not entirely sure)

Bret we will run a charity night or some kind of auction to get you there

we did see some fligts the other day for around £450 (this includes a change in New york) and about £250 a week for a double room at the Venue

(will have to check tis again though

Thanks for all the replies - This sounds fantastic. Will run it by him-in-doors.

Actually... thinking about it.. with 3 days of no sleep, Al will be too delirious on the Monday to realise I've dragged him into The Little White Wedding Chapel whistling.gif:yes::(

Sounds a good idea, but can you imagine what the photos of the congregation would look like, when they've had no sleep for three days either !

I was there for the Prince Naseem fight about 3 years ago and coffee and Margaritas were my staple diet for 4 days. I followed each margarita with a strong coffee for 4 days solid! I did quite well at the Blackjack tables and every winning run was finished off at Crazyhorse, the well known lapdancing bar! I was on a bit of a tour round the US and like a fool a booked our flight out of Vegas to NY a day on the morning of the Naz fight!

I am jealous sick of all you Vegas bound jetsetters! Be aware that soul may take a back seat cos that place has real distractions! The place is crazier than you could ever imagine. Remember every drink is free at the games tables but it will cost you about £8 for a bud at the bar!

I'm surprised I just now found this post. It's from December. I better get on the ball.

In response to your question and to ease everyone elses doubts, the Vegas Shuffle IS happening and promises to be just as exciting and fun as it sounds.

We're working really hard to get you the best DJs and live acts possible. We've locked in Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings and we're looking at Lou Ragland, August & Deneen and Cody Black.

Don't believe any negative feedback you hear, it's a very positive event for very positive people who enjoy great music and lots of fun. Definitely worth the trip out.

Sorry for the late post and write me if you have any other questions.

Cheers
