  2. That's exactly why I don't go, even tho I'm constantly invited. Up until about 10 years ago the town had a healthy Soul Scene but many of the locals did'nt support it at the time & it was left to mainly travellers from surrounding towns & further afield who were into Modern Soul & 60's Classics with an OVO policy. These days it's been taken over by those who have been away from the scene for years or the local Scooter crowd who prefer a mix of Soul & Ska etc. Personally that's not for me as I still attend Allnighters on a reg basis mainly in the Midlands or Up North with a few others who I can count on one hand & most of them no longer live in the area. Allnighters are few & far between in the South these days I'm afraid apart from in London, Gloucester or of late Plymouth. You lot Up North don't know how lucky you are lol !!!
  3. There are events like this playing cd's etc where I live too but they do play vinyl as well. Not sure if it's OVO tho, it's not advertised as such on their flyers. I do know it caters for a 20's to 50's age group with only a few travelling to events outside the area on a reg basis. The music policy is mostly Top 500. The people who run these do's have a free entry policy at various pubs scattered around the town. Some of the crowd are ex Allnighter folk from the 70's era or from the local Scooter Clubs who treat the events as re-union or revival nights. It's obviously not my type of thing really but I do know some of them & sometimes voice my opinion although they just regard it as fun & a night out dancing to music from their youth. I know for a fact that this is fairly common at a lot of venues in the South but what can you do ?? They don't think they are doing any harm just having a night out with long lost friends. I don't think they advertise on here but they do on facebook. There could be loads & loads of Soul do's throughout the country advertising in such a way........who knows ???

    Ns Events With A Funk Room?

    Pumping Hearts Allnighter in Walsall is well worth a visit too. It's a nice mix of 60's & Funk Edged in the one room. Also Burnley Allnighter has roughly the same music policy. Both great venues for like minded folk..........

    Up Front?

    Up Front, Current Plays, Bangers, Floaters etc, all good phrases to explain what sort of do the promoters are putting on. People then know it's not going to be your run of the mill Same Ol Same Ol tunes that have been belted out time & time again over the years but progressive Dj's with a free reign as to what THEY want to play so like/open minded folk can come along & have a great time without any narrow minded musical restrictions. Put together by a cross section of DJ's specialising in different styles/sub genres covering a wide range to satisfy the needs of their particular club. Could be Funk Edged, R&B, Latin, Boogaloo, Modern Soul, Lesser known Oldies, New Discoveries, Rare Soul, Deep Soul, Uptempo, Midtempo whatever really. Who cares as long as it's Soul related in some way or form. If you want to hear a fair selection of tunes new to your ears then this is the kind of promotion you should look out for. In other words UP FRONT !!!

    Up Front?

    Some people enjoy bathing in stagnant water & never dream of leaving their own little pond simply because they would be lost.
