  1. TWISTED WHEEL SUNDAY SOUL SESSION

    Another fantastic afternoon at the best cellar club in the North, a slow start but soon got a great crowd of like minded soulies , plenty of familiar faces and as always some first timers who will definitely be back for more. Pete John Jock and our dear friend and guest DJ Yocky had the place rocking, playing Wheel classics in the stage room and anything goes in Jocks room, the atmosphere was brilliant and it was great to see so many of our friends especially Yocky and Mandy looking forward to your big day in Jersey. Already look forward to the 26th when the Guest DJ is our mate Andy Scoffin Crewe's finest, sure to be another belter. Thanks guys for making our Sunday's so Special. Al Kev Pat & Sue

  8. TWISTED WHEEL SUNDAY SOUL SESSION

    Apologises for the late review, no apology for keep enthusing about The Wheel, first must say that new owner Chris as certainly got on with things, the place is looking great and still more work to be done, well done Chris and good luck with the new venture. What a brilliant afternoon Pete John and Ozzie had the stage room bouncing with Twisted Wheel Classics, Jock and Ozzie had the back room packed playing a mix of Northern Motown and Ska, they where hosting the Live Band The Retrosettes who performed brilliantly, great to have live bands on and with Chris at the helm I am sure Pete will be organising one or two from the sixties to keep us entertained. Lots of regulars with one or two first timers who I spoke to and asked their opinion on The Wheel - They Loved it and will be back for more, looking forward to the 8th October when guest DJ's Jimmy and Rod from Blackpool will be spinning some tunes and keeping the place buzzing. Thanks again to Pete Jackie John Jock and all the staff at The Wheel for making two Sundays a month so enjoyable. Al Kev Pat & Sue
  9. 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.
