  1. TWISTED WHEEL SUNDAY SOUL SESSION

    What a brilliant afternoon at The Wheel, Pete John Jock and Guest DJ Rob kept the place rocking, we had four friends join us for the first time at the Wheel they absolutely loved it and they will definitely be returning for the unique atmosphere that only cellar clubs seem to have. I was introduced to the new owner Chris who for someone so young surprised me that he is really into the music, he has some great ideas for improving the venue and putting on live acts, the new sign will be outside soon, no longer Alter Ego ' TWISTED WHEEL CLUB', good luck to Chris with his new enterprise and a big thank you to Pete Jackie John and Jock for giving us two brilliant Sundays every month.
