    Soul Weekenders.

    I could have said those exact 4 quotes from 'Geoff'! To add I just love the way cleethorpes to me seems so casual and yet everything just works. I dont really go for the live acts but Patti Austin was amazing at blackpool. The dancefloor in the modern room at blackpool was not good for dancing, some great sets in the daytime bar, so this year Cleethorpes (always on my own), Blackpool (with missus who likes more oldies). Plan to do more european weekenders in future (going to the modsoul weekender in ibiza this year mixing it with house event). Prefer the format cos it doesn't take me any longer to get over a weekender than it does an allniter!! (more music for the same payback)

    Comedy Sale Of The Day

    Just had a look and the £92 one is a G+ and still 5 or 6 days to go ????
  4. Alfie never fails to put on a special night and this was no exception. I would say the venue really is perfect for 200-300 attendees with superb dancefloor. The big draw was Ted Massey and he certainly didn't disappoint playing some cracking tunes and all the other dj's played their part in providing a variety of quality soul with the dancefloor getting going from early on & right through. Well worth considering for 2019 which will be the 10th anniversary special!

    Southampton Soul Club NYE Special 2018 the Empire Hall

    Last years was really great so looking forward to hearing some fantastic top quality tunes all on original vinyl (e.g. Sir Joe, Cairos, Tomangoes, Sam Williams, Calvin Grayson & rare + underplayed etc etc..) !!!

    Room 101 What would you put in it and why?

    button up flies on jeans - why? the modern zip was invented in 1913...

    Male Voices

    obviously there is never any final conclusion to these type of discussions but it reminds us the enormous amount of talent in the soul world and the great thing is the discussion triggers me to think 'oh yes must dig that out or have a listen to that sometime soon'.

    Male Voices

    We can all think of fantastic vocal performances (say on a particular record or two) but to be a'great' they have to have done it consistently time and time again - in the same way that I have witnessed some top quality goals at Reading (not for ages unfortunately) but those players did it once or twice in their career as opposed to a messi. I'll stick with Marvin gaye & Jackie wilson as my desert island collections...

    Male Voices

    If its down to favourite singers for their output then for me Marvin Gaye - so many styles and not one dud. Jackie wilson a close second - for so many great northern dancers. As for a couple of records where the lead singer is for me just incredible - possibly not in a classic sense but just the sheer power/emotion;

    Room 101 What would you put in it and why?

    Christmas markets - basically a craft fair with tinsel selling the same old tat.

    Room 101 What would you put in it and why?

    Agree with virtually all of this except 'celery' (wife uses it quite a bit in casseroles...), thought i was the only one who thinks Michael McIntyre is a total T**T.

    Room 101 What would you put in it and why?

    Records advertised as 'rare' & 'a dj must have' - if every dj should have it then it cant really be rare. 'Buddy' - people i dont know calling me 'buddy' (or even people i do know come to that)
