band of happy travellers, york holgate club, july 1995

Derek Pearson
What a great club the Holgate in York was.

Run by Chris and Sue Holmes, we travelled over religously every month during the mid nineties.

During discussion recently it was a toss up between the Holgate and Lowton as the best ever monthly soul night' we regularly attended.

Great people, good music, nice club and an hour from home.

That's how we remember it.

Lowton shaded it in the end 'cos of its record bar......

When the music's stopped and the lights go on there always some stragglers that just don't wanna go home....

Now that's what you call a shiny dance floor.

I look back on these times with great affection.


From the album:

It was never the same after 1978
