Thanks for the kind words Kylee! It's not my place to comment on the night itself but would like to say a massive thank you to each and everyone that turned out to support us. Despite a monsoon the place was rammed packed, and that is a lot of people in the cavernous Pembo. A lot of credit must also go to the guest DJ's, Phil, Len and Hammie, who all played cracking music and seemed to enjoy themselves thoroughly. It makes it all worthwhile to see so many smiley faces at the end of a very hot and sweaty night! If you could bottle that atmosphere you could make a fortune.

Cheers, Steve.

Really brill night at the Pembo.

The busiest I've seen it.

Good mix of tunes / styles during the night which seemed to please the crowd as the dance floor was rarely empty.

Great to meet the usual suspects again.

Too many to mention but you all know who you are.

Will miss the June event as I'm at Cleggy but will deffo be at the ones after that.

Best to all

Well done Steve and Jem.

Tabs tells me it was an absolutely cracking night as always and well packed out. Unfortunately, had to miss it as it was my turn to work all day Saturday and Sunday on mainentance. (wished I had not messed around at school and I could have got a Monday to Friday job in IT like Tabs) :wicked:

Nice catching up with you Steve at Bedford. Sorry to have missed all the Northampton friends - no doubt will catch up with you all soon. Well done once, again this is really a cracking venue, well run and friendly and of course most important cracking tunes played all night!

Yea...big thanks to Len for playing that c/u for me (I think thats about the tenth time I've badgered you for it Len! :lol: )

Re the Exsavayons (is that how its spelt?) am not sure if its that track but Phil did play one of my faves (which I havent heard out for a while) it being "Gold of my Life" (I've lost the track list from the c.d I had it on and have been trying desperately for at least a week to find the artist so if some kind soul can help ?Cliff?) please do!

Thanks a lot!( my spinny head has almost recovered now! :lol: )
