It's primarily aimed at the Oldies lovers... the venue itself is fab floor wise and plenty of onsite parking. Not so hot if you prefer the R&B or rarer stuff.

Your quite safe, I'm not going :( I need to recharge from Prestatyn - including my wallet :(

Biisley..........very strange one, socially a great night, musically..... yawnnnnnnnnn, still, the place gets packed & we all have a choice don't we.

Strange choice of DJ's too, especially as there are DJ's locally who could play most of the DJ's there off the planet..........maybe a bit of local politics, altho' I'm sure this would be strenuously denied.

The promoters by the way are very nice people & even tho' all oldies the venue is well deserving of your support, look forward to seeing you all their.

Went there a couple of years ago,doesn't appear to have changed much by the DJ line up, don't go if you want to hear anything other than the same old same old.....? but if your happy reliving the "old days" it is a fantastic venue with a great atmosphere.

Word of warning, if you're not familiar with the directions watch out, it's in the middle of nowhere & we had awful trouble finding it.

Steve C, enjoy it mate, must say you looked much better sunday LOL

Hi Mike

I had a great time there, spent most of it chatting int he record bar and helping Roger Stewart on his stall, drank too much and threw up on the way home (and blamed it on being travel sick ;-))

Had a great time. Neil Rushton and Ginger played great sets as did Rob Smith. When you hear the likes of Calvin Grayson and the Icemen then you know Bisley has progressed with its music policy. Great company, a bloody good laugh and a good dance - what more could you ask for.

In all honesty I do not think there has been a change or progression of music policy at all. Bisley, and Fleet before it, was and still is predominately an oldies venue. The difference in music comes depending on who the guest DJ's are. If Ginger is guest you will hear something a bit different, if R.Winstanley is the guest you don't. And lets not forget that the majority of the punters are 'oldies' fans.

Which is why they ought to use the second room for something a bit different, to offer punters an alternative, instead of using it as a second oldies room.

I never really went in the smaller room, I must admit, but I thought it was playing x~over and Modern. 8 till 10 playing anything just to warm it all up and then from midnight, modern etc.

I had a good night people liked me new Jackie Wilson track "Say I DO" so personally I was happy.

Roll on the weekend, is it just me or are you all wishing you had gone to America for that Northern Trip with your mates as well?

bisley was bisley.

nothing new but a good local venue.saves that treck up north every now and then.

not sure if the dj,s or promoters are to blame for the music policy.

more like the punters themselves.they have tried to play different stuff but when they do the dancefloor empties quicker than,,,,,,em well a very quick thing.

yet you talk to the regular punters and the majority wanna hear new things.

not sure what the answer is.guess if people stayed on the floor when they heard somink new the music policy would progress.yet they dont so its back to square one.

i had a good night though

Ditto most of the above, but just to put a little perspective on the subject this is the best attended all-nighter, in the south outside of London for some years.

Agree with Dave A, the second room was wasted, if this was a crosover/Modern room, purely from a promotional point of view your gonna attract another 200 or so punters, who would not be there other wise.

I beleive the promoters knowledge of the Modern scene is fairly limited, but I know a man who would offer advise............moi.......any one have an email address for the promoters.

Just read through the Bisley comments and yep, pretty much most of its true.

People do, however, lose sight of the fact that Bisley pulls in 400+ everytime and as far as I can see everybody seems to be having a good time. Brilliant venue (once you've found it), top dance floor & friendly people. Its marketed as an oldies nite as thats what the area needs. A lot of local people went to Bisley in the 70's, dropped out of the scene & only now do Bisley.

Quite frankly they're not gonna get their heads around a lot of the new stuff.

People vote with their feet!

The second room was billed as 'Decades Of Soul'. It was across the board, the djs were given a free hand in what they played. Personally I thought some of the modern stuff played was excellent.

If you're looking for a broader cross-section of northern soul, get down to Morden this Friday nite 2.4.04. Hope to post some more details on Morden tomorrow.

Col.
