    It's been over a year now since the Serious Shades of Soul crew put on a Northern Soul night and after much persuasion we have a new venue which is superb. Alongside Nige Grice we hopefully will be putting Northern Soul Nights on at Mainsforth Community Centre in Ferryhill Station County Durham. It doesn't sound very exotic but this place screams "Station Rd, Wigan Casino". The first floor venue has such presence it's beyond me why Northern Soul nights have not been put on here before now. The main hall has a superb maple dance floor and full balcony over looking the hall which will be open if numbers allow. we will be catering for all Northern Soul followers but with an emphasis on quality original vinyl only music plus the best DJ's from around the UK. We will cater for everyone, across the board music policy with great Northern Soul..... The first guest dj on the night will be Pete Lyster from The Bridgewater Arms Soul Club. Pete needs no introduction as a DJ with him being one of the main protagonists at The Bridlington, Newquay and Amsterdam Soul Weekenders. A fantastic soul collector and DJ, we look forward very much to his first appearance in the North East. Nige Grice - long established DJ from the Manchester / Brighouse area - always a crowd pleaser no matter who's in the house... Paul Ackley from Newton Aycliffe who still packs a punch with the rarest of the rare.... check out his playlists.. Sean Tasker from Newcastle, Sean has an enviable collection of hard to get Northern Soul, like Nige Grice, a certain crowd pleaser. Plus local DJ's still to be press ganged onto the roster. £4.00 on the door gets you into one of the most atmospheric halls in the North east - about 5 minutes (2 miles) from junction 60 A1M (HEADING NORTH) take your first left onto A689 then immediate first right onto Gipsy Lane direct to Ferryhill Station. Parking directly opposite the club plus plenty of free on street parking. This will be one of the best Northern soul nights in the North East this year...... Don't miss it.... and with drinks at £2.50 a pint what's not to like.... more details to follow - contact Nige on 07887 528263 or Paul on 07778 967285 Regards Paul & Nige

    Hull Soul Club

    Got there about 8.30pm and plenty of soulies in so no seats by the dance floor - a great venue with a good sound system. The usual oldies type night but with a good atmosphere and nice people. Everybody was friendly and will call back again sometime. Thanks for the night - recommended if you're in the area.

    Rafa Soul club – Newton Aycliffe SERIOUS SHADES OF SOUL We knew it was going to be a busy night but didn’t expect people queuing to get in at 6.30pm, especially when the club didn’t open ‘till 7.00pm. It was hectic from the start and Ian hooked up the decks to get some noise out of them whilst everyone streamed in. The 50 free cd’s went in a crack! And if you missed out on one contact Paul and he might be able to sort you out with one. By 8.00pm the place was quite full and already on the decks was the first guest DJ – EVO from Wolverhampton. Although EVO claims not to be a DJ I think he revelled in playing the records to the crowd who were up for it from the Git Go! A few thank you’s before putting the playlists up and they go to: June and Denise for manning the desk taking the monies and handing out the cd’s, a great job, thank you. Claire and Sean for turning up so early to help out as usual – again thanks. Sad that Karen missed the last night but was really poorly with Flu. So at 7.30pm Ian Shoulder handed over Evo and his set went like this: Traffic Jam – I can’t get over you Three Prophets – Think I really love you Walker & Sisters – How long Margie Joseph – I can’t move no mountains Tommie Young – That’s all a part of loving him Lorraine Rudolph – Keep coming back for more Gene Chandler – Think nothing about it Marion Stewart – I must be losing you Lee Williams – Peeping through the windows Argie & The Arkettes – You’re the guy George Jackson – I don’t have the time to love you The Chashers – Without my girl Wales Wallace - Somebody I know Liz Verdi – Think it over Joanne Garrett – A whole new plan The Dynamics – I wanna know The Mighty Marvelows – Talkin’ bout ya baby. Thanks EVO for that great set and you’d be surprised how many people asked “ who’s playing”, “that set was great”,” loved it”, “refreshing.” We’ll keep in touch with you guys and hopefully will see you all soon. EVO made way for Dave Eyley and Peter Richer who double decked with this lot.... Mell Britt - She’ll come running back Vicky Labatt – You got to keep on Barbara mason – You better stop it Jackie Beavers – I need my baby Young Brothers – Baby Fortson & Scott - Sweet Lover Barbara Jean – Why weren’t you there Fascinations – Yeah, Yeah (C/UP) Bobby Kline - Say Something nice Dolly Gilmore – Sweet Sweet Baby Guitar ray – Gonna wreck my life Cookie Scott – I don’t care Natural 4 – Thought you were mine Cashmeres – Show Stopper Masqueraders – How Empires – You’re on top girl Sandi Sheldon – You’re gonna make me love you Jackie Day – Naughty Boy Willie Hutch – Love runs out Del – larks – Job Opening Ramona Collins – You’ve been Cheating Just Brothers – Carlena Honey Bees Dynamite exploded The Jokers – Soul Sound Eddie Parker – I’m Gone Gene Woodbury – Ever Again The Nomads – Something’s bad Elusions – You didn’t have to leave Brooks brothers – Lookin’ for a woman Al Williams - Nothing Stunners – Nobody but me Gwen Owens – Wanted and needed 90 minutes of class Northern Soul from the Tyneside boys who never fail to deliver. Thanks for the offer to support the night Dave you made it all worth while. So with Dave placing Gwen Owen’s Velgo recording on the deck for the last time, Paul Ackley took over by placing another Velgo record on the other deck which was quite a rarity and started his last set at the Rafa Club with.... Two Plus Two – look around – Velgo Imperial C’s – Somebody tell her – Phil La Out of sights – For the rest of my life - Saru The Rising Sun – Good Loving - Kingston Kelly and the Soul Explosions – Talkin’ bout my baby’s love - Dyna Mite Billy Byrd – Lost – Scream Paul Vann – One track Mind – Chance Angela Davis – My love is so strong – Flaming Arrow Fred Mark – Someone to talk to – Concept Poets – Wrapped around your finger – J-2 Betty Wilson – I’m yours – Dayco Patrinelle Staten – Little Love affair – Sepia Flash McKinley – I’ll rescue you – Bombay Salt & pepper – A man of my words – Heatwave Trannells - Blessed with a love - flo-Jo Larry Clinton – She’s Wanted - Dynamo Damon Fox – I’m packin’ Up – Fairmount Eddie Whitehead – Just a fool – Blackjack Cameros - We’re not too young – Dar - Cha The Sweets – Something ‘Bout my baby – Soul Town Jimmie Bo Horne – I just can’t speak – Dade Soul Inc’ – Pyramid – Golden Eye Eddie Billups – Ask my heart – Peachtree Robert Tanner - Sweet Memories – Megatone Sam Williams - Love slipped through my fingers I’m not sure where you’ll hear a set like that again, especially all clumped together in one go? Thanks Paul for all of your dedication and efforts at The rafa Club over the years – we couldn’t have made it without you. Now considering Paul has sold most of his top records that play box was still something special and so many still never got played. Our final Guest DJ was John Parker from Beverley and John needs no introduction to the club as he’s dj’d here many times and as usual he kept the standard so high and started with...... The Magnetics – Count The Days - Sable The Volumes - Ain’t gonna give you up – Karen Admirations - You left me – Peaches George Pepp – The Feeling is real – Coleman Chuck Cockerham – Have I got a right – Mala Soul Inc – My proposal – Coconut Groove Jonathan Capree – Gonna Build Me A Mountain – Ox Bow Lynn Terry – I Got a good thing going –La Salle Springers - Nothings too good Mel Williams - Groove my mind Chipper Johnny Barnes - Nothing Without Your Love Boco Running The Mardi Gras - Laughing Eye Willie J Charles - Feeling Kind Of Lonely Billly bailey - You Better Stop ray-del Parliaments - This Is My Rainy Day Cabell The Nightriders – Lookin’ for my baby – Sue Mr Lucky – Born to love you – Stardom The Profs – Look at you – Curr J D Bryant – I won’t be coming back – Shrine Shirley Edwards – Dream my heart – Shrine Cairos – Stop over looking me - Shrine Jesse James - Love is alright – Acetate Antellects – Love slave – Flodavieur Bob and Fred – I’ll be on my way – Big Mack Tiny Topsy – Just a little Bit – Federal Now then, I’m going to go to Bletchley Park to find the infamous Nazi Enigma machine to see if it can decipher the rest of john’s playlist as he wrote them down on the night and I’m Buggered if I can work them out. So John, if you can remember what you played that’s outstanding from above let me know and I’ll insert them into the right place – 8 records missed out John, sorry but I need Pablo Picasso’s beer goggles to work them out. What a fantastic set it was from John and he never had an empty floor. Thanks again John – always a pleasure to see you. Well that was that – Paul and Ian finished the night off and it rolled on until about 1.15am with the final records being Esther Phillips – “Just say goodbye”, Marvin Gaye’s – “Come get to this” and finally David Ruffin’s “Walk away from love”. Thanks for viewing and if you there thanks for listening. Paul – Ian & Kev. So it’s Goodnight from me and it’s Goodnight from him and him!!! GOODNIGHT.

    Thanks for the comments Maz - you added to the whole scene here in Newton Aycliffe, it was a pleasure having you as guest dj. A scholar and a gentleman, will meet up with you no doubt. Cheers Paul.
  15. Soulboyslim


    DJ times loaded up and as you can see we'll be starting early at 7.00pm (which is when the club opens so that will be tight!) to give all of the travelling / guest dj's a decent time on the decks - we might be able to go past the 12.30am close and extend 'till 1.00am but we'll have to ask on the night. Let's hope the place is full for a final blast....
