Can't wait for both the All Dayer on the Sunday and the Connaught next Friday mate,

Think I'm even gonna be able to drag my sister ( who ain't been to a soul do in 30 years ) out to both too, as well as some mates from Yorkshire this weekend

Great line-up and the variety of music should be cracking too - looking forward to seeing Martin and Patch spin a few

Damn shame ( or perhaps a good thing ) there's no nighter local on Saturday mellow.gif

Still, that will leave me more energy for Sunday wooohooooooooooooo :D

cheers

Yes totally agree , wonderful performances by the artists , superb sounds from all D'js and anyone who missed this missed one of the events of the last few years. Shows who the real soul fans really are :sleep3:

Great debate after it had finished till about 2am about boots V originals as well :D

Anyway back on topic, hope The Connaught this Friday is even half as good and it will still be a brill night. I'm sure it will.

Thanks Chalky for allowing me to have a bit of fun, in what was a superb alldayer for Soul music. Great how Yvonne Vernee cut in vocally part way through the record, took a few seconds to realise what was happening. Very good day had by all by the sounds of things. Well done for putting on such a great event.

Sorry I can't make it friday, the wife is away and I have the girls to look after, sure it will be a good nite. I promise we'll come over soon. Look forward to seeing both you and Craig at Warwick.

Best

Dave.

For f*cks sake, do you have to always have a pop at everything I ever say?

We were sat selling records and a couple of people came up and said how come you're smoking, I think Gary Holimans missus was one of them, and I said what do you mean, and she said they'd been told not to smoke as it was a non smoking hotel. Now if you'd like to address that fine but don't just dismiss it with a 'who gives a shit about smoking' cos I do and so do other people. And as for telling me what soul nights are about...

1ST, I WAS'NT ADDRESSING YOUR POST PETE, IT WAS CRAIGS, EVEN THOUGH YOU STARTED IT!!

2ND, AS FAR AS THE PROMOTERS ARE AWARE YOU CAN SMOKE IN THE MAIN BALLROOM UNTILL THEY ARE TOLD ANY DIFFERENT!

3RD, FROM THE 1ST OF JULY, WHEN THE NATIONAL BAN COMES IN YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO SMOKE ANYWAY. SO DOES THIS MEAN THAT PEOPLE WILL STOP GOING TO SOUL VENUES ???

4TH, I HAVE AN OPINION AND I AM ENTITLED TO IT. AND I WILL DISMISS IT.

5TH, I AM A FEMALE AND ENTITLED TO MOAN AT MEN IF I WANT TO. :D XX

I don't know about stopping but it'll certainly change things I think.

I cannot drink beer without having a cigarette, I just can't. So I'd be like, sell records for 10 minutes, lock the box, run outside for a fag, repeat 20 times during the evening.

I think it'll certainly stop people going to pubs. I won't go to a pub again, whats the point if you can't smoke?

Now then Pete If you are desperate after the smoking ban there will always be a constant supply of nicorette at the Conaught :D ~ I always have a supply due to the fact I've been on it 8 yrs yes thats not a typing error never touched a fag since or wanted to but don't take my gum away :angry: I need it~ plus think of all the excercise running in and out yoou'll be the fittest smoker on the soul scene :D

anyway seeya friday should be a good nite

I think that you have a good point Pete! and i totally agree with you, in that it will change things for a lot of people.

I have to sit on the door all night at the Connaught, and i won't be able to keep popping outside for a cigarette, but on that note...... myself and Phil's local have already brought the non smoking ban in, we still go and surprisingly it does'nt bother us that much, But it will effect other people and i think that it will definetly effect our public houses.

All the odd 5, 10, 15 quid records I've got lying around, I've stuck them all in a box and I'm going to be flogging them for a fiver each tonight - 3 or 400 of them. It's weird, I sold more pressings and reissues there last time than I did originals!

Great night last night , a bit slow to start because of the match but the room filled up nicely later on with a full dancefloor all night apart from a couple I played laugh.gif

Great spots from all Dj's totally across the board sounds even I was dancing last night.

Many thanks to Wulfie and Annie for the lift home thumbsup.gif

Will post some photos up later.
