    TWISTED WHEEL SUNDAY SOUL SESSION

    Another fantastic afternoon at the Best Cellar Club around and what a brilliant turnout lots of regulars with once again some new faces who loved the unique atmosphere that The Wheel provides. Pete John Jock and our dear friend Yocky had both rooms rocking, wheel classics in the stage room and superb mix of Northern Motown R&B and Ska in room 2. Thanks guys for making our Sunday afternoon so special, back at The Wheel 9th September looking forward to another cracking afternoon with Guest DJ Ginger Taylor. Regards Al & Pat

    TWISTED WHEEL SUNDAY SOUL SESSION

    First of all apologises for the late review been a very busy week since I turned 65 (can't believe it), thanks Pete & Jackie for the special Birthday mention and the Card really appreciate the best wishes of everyone at The Wheel, certainly the best Soul Club around. Another smashing turnout considering the continued Sunshine and Holiday period, again it was nice to see a few new faces who loved the occasion, Pete and John Kane had the main room rocking playing Wheel Classics one or two I have never previously heard, in room two Jock and John played a superb mix of Northern, Motown, R &B and a bit of Ska something for everyone. If you have never been make it a date second and last Sunday of the month, 12th August our dear friend Yocky is guest DJ sure to be another cracking afternoon. Al & Pat

    TWISTED WHEEL SUNDAY SOUL SESSION

    Great turnout considering the Weather Whitby and The Allnighter on Friday, The Wheel really does bring in the crowds: The Music - The Unique Atmosphere - The People. We had another brilliant afternoon Pete, John, Jock and the three lads from Blackpool Jimmy, Rod, and Tim played some superb tunes Wheel Classics, 60's R&B, Northern, Motown and a bit of Ska thrown in, well done guys you kept the place buzzing. I must mention the Club Owner Chris and his staff they are so friendly and provide service with a smile, they are efficient no queuing for drinks. Thanks everyone for another memorable Sunday at Manchester's Best Soul Club. Al Kev Pat & Sue

    harold soul club bradford no more

    Sad news Lawrence about your father our thoughts are with you. We only attended The Harold Club on a few occasions and we were met with open arms by yourself Jules and the two Sue's all such lovely people. The music was always of the highest standard the regulars always greeted us with friendly smiles, the dance floor one of the best around, so sad at the closure, thanks for the memories of such good nights some of the best. We look forward to seeing you and please pass on our best wishes to Jules and the two Sue's. Your Friends from Manchester Al Kev Pat & Sue x
