DONT TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT...............................

"anorther great night at Lowton on Friday."

"Brilliant Night.........Night over too soon"

"Another top nite at Lowton"

"Wow...What a Fantastic Night!"

"What a great night out it was at Lowton, Brilliant to see this fantasic venue back on form"

"Loved It"

LOWTON CIVIC HALL - HEASKETH MEADOW LANE - LOWTON - Nr WIGAN

So did last night do what it says on the 'tin' ? Well i'll try to give one perspective cause I spent all my time in the main room last night, so Joan on the DDA guys will have to tell you about the second room later.

First of all it was a busy night, so that's always good but more than that, everyone I talk to comments on how Lowton is back to 'the old days' now that's not 'Wigan days' or 'Torch days' that's 'Lowton's days' doing what Lowton has always done, playing great Soul music to an appriciative crowd, and that certainly was the case last night.

Nev was playing familiar sounds early doors as people where arriving with a mix of 60's and 70's and by 9pm the main room was busy will more and more people arriving thru the night. Next on was 'Local' collector Kev McCue whos selections included, The Paramount Four, Shepperds, Traits, Bobbettes, Linda Elliot, Honey and the Bees and Fran Jeffries all of which sounded great over the new sound system. Next up was Kev Murphy with a great selection of floor pleasers and Lowton favourites including The Del Tours, Carressors, Danny Woods, Paulette and the Sonatas. I followed Kev with this intention of getting maximum floor reaction, which was achieved with the likes of Curly Moore, Gerri Hall, Charles Farren, Tony Galla, Karmello Brooks, Eddie Spencer, Skip Jackson, Barbara Carr, Two People and TJ Williams.

Then came the main guests of the night Andy Dyson and Dean Anderson! Both Andy and Dean are regular guests at Lowton and have an excellent rapport with the crowd there, as a result the last two hours were filled with music that generally you would not really expect to hear at a regular Soul night and I did not hear a bad record in the two hours. What I did hear was a selection of tunes that would have graced the speakers at any of the top all-nighters. Quality Uptempo Nothern Soul! Playlists to follow.......

2am came all too soon and the end of another great night at Lowton. So, as it says on the tin, Atmosphere, Choice of Great Music loads of records for sale and a great social crack. Good to see Sam, Guy Hennigan, Chalky, Bob Hinsley, Carol Mc, Robbo, Dave R, Malc W, Geoff W and Steve Barr.

As I say did really get in the DDA much but heard it was v busy, so guys over to you...................

Another top night at Lowton :thumbsup: Very busy record bar, always the busiest of the monthly venues, lots of quality vinyl for sale

Main room was rockin from early doors, superb atmosphere, plenty of dance floor action to the choice tunes being played.

Enjoyed the majority of sounds being played by the DJs, but must give a special mention to Kev McCue who played a blinding hour of generally underplayed tunes and kept the dancers happy!

Well done Kev your selections were appreciated by many, i've not seen the dancefloor so busy early doors before!

cheers Paul

Excellent night last night, good mixture of sounds to an appreciative floor which was full all night. As Paul said the record bar one of the best and busiest about with plenty of sellers every time.

Credit to Kev and Baz for providing one of the best soul nights in the country :thumbsup:

Brilliant night, one of the best I've been to at Lowton.

Great tunes in both rooms, my biggest problem was worrying about missing out on what was being played in the room I wasn't in!!!

Well done Kev,Baz,Joan

Your welcome Olaf !! I guess another busy weekend so maybe there'll be some action on here when everyone's recovered !

From my point of view I had an ACE TIME once again at Lowton and it was a great pleasure to be asked to play a few tunes by The DDA gang (Karl,Joan & Paul) I thoroughly enjoyed myself...that's a bit of an understatement !!!!

Top tunes from all concerned some great stuff from Ian Cunliffe !! Usual quality from The DDA !I wondered into the main room a couple of times which was really buzzing, great crowd as always and had loads of chinwags with friends..love the social side of this venue!

York crew...yer mad and I luv ya ! See y'all at Cleethorpes. Thankyou to everyone who gave me such great feedback on my selections I'm so glad you enjoyed the tunes and sorry but can't remember everyone who asked for CDs so please remind me if your reading this.

I'll post a playlist later ...Thanks to Baz M,Kev & All The Lowton Crew for a Top Night !!!!!!! thumbsup.gif

If you've never been to Lowton I recommend you get down and give a try - sure you won't be disappointed - something for everyone. These day's I spend most of the night in DDA room as it offer's something a bit different which is always a good thing in my book :rolleyes: Quite of lot of uptempo which suits me to a T - but some fantastic mid-tempo too, infact a great mix and always get to hear records I've not heard before - the passion and enthusiam from the dj's, always makes the atmosphere in this room spot on :thumbsup:

Spent a lot of time going through to the Main hall to catch up with friends and spent the last 2 hours listening to top sets from Andy and Dean - My timing for the ladies couldn't have been worse - as miss judged the start of Andys set and he started with the fantastic dancer - Bobby Valentine - and my all time fav - Hayes Cotton from Dean - the full dance floor delayed me getting my feet on the floor for a few precious seconds, as I made my dash back from the ladies - but I made it on both occassions and danced my way to soul heaven :ohmy:

Till next time....

.....thanks Steve, a good summary. Captain Morgan did the business and I was up to the decks to check what he was playing on more than one occasion. Thanks too, to Ian for gracing our decks. There has been so much chat and writing about what this scene has to be. The words uptempo and 60's keep coming up. Im glad to say we had a great variety of brilliant music in the DDA room on Friday, ranging through uptempo, mid tempo, 60,s, 70,s and a few beat ballads. The best description is 'music to move your soul and your feet'....Which is what it did.!! Thanks to Joan, Karl and all who came to support. Great to see Eileen and Chas out again!

another fantastic night at lowton ,it certainly does do what it says on the tin,great to see good friends old and new,a great crack ,i just wish it would go on a bit longer what do ya reckon bazM :thumbsup: Great sets from all dj,s and i really enjoyed ur sounds chris well done m8 :rolleyes:

Just like to say that I really enjoyed Lowton last friday. Its been a year or so since I last went & the DDA room was a refreshing change. Met up with a few people enquiring about my forced hibernation from the scene recently, who were unaware about my Diabetes. Well things are "picking up" a bit for me now health wise, so as Primbrook Skiggs once said.....that was yesterday.....I'm on the mend & hoping to become more active again from now on !

Regards to All Ritchie. :rolleyes:

First of all... I would like to say a HUGE thank you to Baz for everything he does for us with the sound system.

I keep trying to tell him how much we appreciate him... but I don't think he really listens to me... can't think why... whistling.gif

Anyway... THANKS FELLA! thumbsup.gif

Joan.......no need to metion it, just happy to be able to help :thumbsup:

From the looks of the playlists brilliant tunage in the back room on Friday, just couldn't get in there with yapping to Mr McCue and Co in the big room, but looking forward to next month already.
