Does anybody out there remember LEICESTER ODFELLOWS allniter??

I can't believe the amount of people that look at me like i've lost the plot when i ask if they went there!!

Ok ..... lost the plot years ago ..... but this was a MASSIVE NITER & can't understand why nobody ever mentions it!

Joan,i rememeber you at my nights at the Barrel organ in 85 and Notts palais/bali hai room the same year.

The leicester oddfellows dancewas so packed(sardines) ,Joan, you were at all the big niters back then.

Just wanted to let you all know there is an Oddfellows reunion booked in Leicester at the original Nottingham Oddfellows Club venue that the nighters were held at in the 1980's. The date is bank holiday Sunday May 25th 2014, and it will run from 8pm - 2am in 3 rooms (although we are trying to start from 5pm -  to allow everybody to catch up early doors but are waiting to have that confirmed.) To date 6 original DJ's are booked with a little bit more to do in that area. Finalised details will be posted up soon regarding tickets and confirmed times etc. The challenge will be to connect with all of the guys who used to attend and make them aware of the event as the numbers allowed in by the club are a lot less than what I expect will want to attend. I will update S.S. over the next week or so, but please PM me, email me; ally.mayer@pyrint.com or call 07971 596679, if you have any questions, regards  Ally Mayer

Was it Clive Jones? I'm not 100% certain he was on but we did have a policy of changing guest DJ's every month. Clive had a great collection and was a popular DJ back then.

My immediate thought was Clive Jones, but I didn't recall him DJ'ing at Oddfellows.

 

Ally, gotta ask you.....was your stall just inside the indoor market called "Oddity Records"?  It's so long ago that I can't recall exactly, but used to love visits to Leicester to your stall and Rudzi's place!  Lot's of my early 45's, and possibly LP's, came from you guys!  :thumbsup:

 

 

Cheers,

Mark R

Can't remember Curley having blond bits; probably best way you'd remember him is that he would had a quid out of you at some point  :D

 

If you watch the Oddfellows vid he's one of the black guys in the dance comp.

Hi Karl, I remember Stacey - he was as mad as a box of frogs - but nice lad. I am sure if you get onto Jane's  "I went to the Nottingham Oddfellows nighters" Facebook tribute page somebody will know his whereabouts.

Thanks a bunch :hatsoff2: yeah,that was him. An absolute top,top,NS-collector guy.No pretentiousness with him.He was friendly,modest,and played every request I asked for.He had the best collection of TOP RARE NS I ever seen in my humble life.And it was a real pleasure to meet him and look in awe through his boxes.He was an avid British collector though,and sadly kept going on about his latest (Brit) aquisitions,I can't recall now what they were,he had a box load -but I recall his northern all right...as JM would say : "JAW-DROPPING" :ohmy: and awsome beyond belief.He had everything.Whatever happened to him? How often was he on at the Odds? I only saw him that one time there.But I have never forgotten,and I never will. :no:

Hope nobody minds this here...........not Oddfellows, but I can't resist making someone's day 'cos I know exactly how good it feels myself when someone shares these things..........the following uploaded a few months ago from one of my old tapes..........

Clive Jones, from 38:42 after Brian Rae to 1:08:16 where Dave Evison takes over.

 

Enjoy!!

Theres some names from the past. Was at the anniversary with Tommo (Notts) Curley, Lynn from Eastwood, Tommy Cragg, along with a baby faced Kitch, Shippo(RIP), Alf, Jenny .... a good 20 odd mob of Notts lot out that night. I look at myself in the video and I look like a 10 year old with facial hair!!

Also travelled a few times with Tommo to Clifton Hall - one good lad.

I haven't seem Curley for years, again what a lad.

I can remember the kick off before the nighter, an unprovoked attack on the queue as I saw it, it wasn't just skinheads but a mix, some rockabilly types in there if I remember. One lad in a leather trench coat with a tash (I won't go there) was particularly active in dispatching the attackers.

Joan -

Saw Haley at both mine and Kitch's 40th Birthdays and at Teffs wedding -top girl on top form. Woody pops over and sees her from time to time she and the young uns doing fine tongue.png

Just spotted this on said altercation.

 

think we need Phill Worrell out for this :)
