  1. Top job from Boston Spas finest! Superb stuff fellas Josh
  2. Event Title: Limetree Festival:- Live Soul + Funk,plus Northern,Jazz, Reggae +loads more... Event Author: kelvinx Calendar: Allnighter/Weekenders Event Date: Fri 26 August 2011 ------------------------------------------------- If you fancy something different check this out... Limetree Festival voted no1 festival by the Guardian for live funk and soul... Yorkshire's funkiest and friendiest festival, Limetree in Grewelthorpe, is in its fourth year, and contains a fantastic line up of the best local, national and global soul, funk, northern soul, jazz, reggae, dubstep artists, bands and DJs Embracing music and culture with four individual stages, each with their own agenda, the festival is diverse but all inclusive. The main Green Man stage hosts some of the bigger names including, and making their Limetree debuts, ethnic eletronica from Transglobal Underground; The Fantastics who have performed live on BBC sessions for Mark Lamarr and Craig Charles; Mercury and Brit award nominee jazz singer Carleen Anderson and merging the sounds of jazz, blues, folk, funk and pop Krystle Warren. The festival kicks off on Thursday night with a unique experience for early bird festival goers with djs Tony Hatfield and John Parker representing York Soul Club in the "sorted" dance tent. These guys have a collection sounds to get the place jumping from the start... The Jason Rae stage brings new and unsigned bands from across the Uk & world, this year taking in China Shop Bull with their blend of ska and drum'n'bass, punk from Captain Hotknives and Yorkshire based indie bands Leonards Revenge and The Secret Sirens. In the dance tent, the Grammy nominated Zero 7 and collaborator of Dub/Electro/Drum with Islamic/world grooves, Celt Islam will play DJ sets with all things folk, comedy and cabaret, QueerinSpace in the Bet Lynch tent will be home to rising soul star 18 year old singer songwriter Jasmine Kennedy, the duo behind one of Mojo's Top 10 Albums of the Year 2010 O'Hooley & Tidow and acoustic soul from Extracurricular's Ruby & Noah. You can even bring the kids as it has always been important to organisers that children have as much to do and enjoy as the adults. A separate camping area this year allows families to relax when it comes to bedtime knowing they won't be woken by late night stragglers(!) and there is a growing programme of events and workshops for toddlers and teenagers.Theres something special for everyone at Limetree...thats why its been nominated for best new festival by UK festival awards More info at http://www.limetreefestival.co.uk/ Visit this Event in Soul Source Events Guide for venue maps, street views,road and rail directions and more

    Soul & Motown Nights

    Ive never understood a music policy being described as "strictly across the board"...seems a contradiction imho.

    Soulboy - The Movie. You've Seen It So . .

    My expectations were pretty low but i thought it was worth 6/10...Its been a long time but i thought they did a good job of recreating the casino and liked the old footage mixed in. I was a bit irritated that the first tune heard was "Tiger Feet".Even the credits at the end didnt have a soundtrack...what a waste. The story wasnt great,the dance off was cr+p and whole thing wasnt a patch on "Once upon a time in Wigan".However I was left thinking its impossible to make a commerical film about this subject..Go too deep and most people would be confused even bored, make it like this and the Northern crowd probably think its a bit patronising.. Anyway considering the time and budget constraints i thought it was a good effort and worth watching. Favourite line "Have you got any Oldies?" "Theyre all old, you div"

    York Soul Club 5Th Feb

    For whats its worth i think the more funk based sounds are musically a breath of fresh air to the scene and its great to hear some getting played at progressive northern venues....Anything that gets the younger crowd interested has got to be a bonus as well..Also great to hear Gibby play Roy Roberts - You Move me on Saturday...

    Promoters

    Another point to consider from a punters view... PROMOTERS PLEASE TAKE NOTE When 2 events clash plenty of punters fear numbers will be low at both.Instead of going to one or the other they dont go to either...

    There Was A Time - Kennedy's Bar, York

    First visit to this venture for me and had a great night.I think what made it special was the fact that it is not overly publised in the bar upstairs so its more of a word of mouth event, so although it was very busy it was a really mixed audience. Many of the younger crowd are probably just going out of curiosity for an hour or so but hopefully will be back and could support other events in the city as well.... I think its great that its free so every hour there was whole load of new faces...Thought the music was spot on for a city centre bar a few classics but lots of quality stuff as well. Well done to all.
