    We had a great time on Saturday great music played through out the 1st night in Congleton

    Big thank you goes out our TBC DJ's who helped us out on  the night  at short notice ,Kev Johnson (aka Shute) & GAL (aka John Gallagher)

    We had loads of laughs & banter from the side lines from the enthusiasts & positive feedback from all  that danced & DJ's choices where all good 

    Thanks to Skippy Sue for the photos 

    The music is still evolving at this event  & the collector /DJ's are still digging deep & bringing a refreshing take on whats NOW !  to the dance floor !! 

    We are looking for future dates to keep moving this event  forward  details to follow

  3. Fantastic venue with a friendly welcome from the the promoters 

    Really enjoyed it & deffo be back again in the future 

    Music was spot on & as stated on here 

    Dj's all did a great job behind the decks & the only issue was the mic went down which i wasn't bothered about it was about the music that was being played NOT the waffle of a dj & not understanding what he says

    A BIG thank you goes out for the support we've had from our attendee's over the last 6 months 

    The music on Saturday  blew me away where every DJ/collector dug deep again givin' us all a treat &  a night we won't forget it was a feast to the ears to be honest 

    Loads of new to me sounds are gettin' time on the decks all aimed at the floor & gettin' reaction on the floor which IMHO is so refreshing & forward lookin' in my eyes

    Thank you Shute for being our 1st TBC guest  top guy with a collection to match 

    A few kind word i have picked up of face book from our very own queen of the photo's on the soul scene known to us all on SS Skippy Sue

    Our time is now.... Yet again a different set of music It's absolutely fantastic, Why listen to the same ones over and over again when there is so many good records simply NOT being played! Great sets by all the DJ's XX

    Saturday's event was our last in Tunstall we have had a fantastic time there !!

     We will be moving to our new venue which we are all excited about  1st event will be held on the 7th July more details to follow.......

    .....once again thank you to everyone for your support  @ OTIN hope you join us at  the new venue 

    The last record of the night i had the pleasure of playing out & it was my tribute to the iconic club "The Golden Torch" which  only stood 50 yards from our little dance floor so i'm putting on here the you tube clip is the actual record i played



    Just a few words on about the music played out by the collector/DJ's 

    They really dug even deeper & gave our followers a night to remember for a long time 

    Every time this event has been put on NOT one of our putter onner's  puts up the same sets together its so refreshing & a privilege to hear & be apart off

    Like we have said this event is about the music NOT about DJ's 

    I'm gonna add a link  from our own queen of the photo's on soul source & which her comment has overwhelmed us all involved as all we are doing is playing the records we have collected & they have had very  little exposure in our eyes 

    Our next night link added below 


  4. Well here i am after a superb nighter @ The 3 Clubs

    Firstly could i say a big thanks to who supported  & promoted this event on Saturday & made it a very special evening indeed 

    As stated  i said i would be in the Dolly room most of the night this room is very special where they promised to do it differently & the collector /DJ's  & in my eyes you guy's came up with the goodies on the decks & NAILED IT !! ,loads of new to me sounds too !! ,Now on another note some of them are starting  to join in on that old chestnut game of C/U's at least 5 that i heard & yes i joined in the game too !

    The room was well received  by all that popped in & the regulars who want that a something a bit different FIX !! all night Thank you for supporting the room & making it a memorable night for all concerned

    I did finish the night in the main room listening to the last couple of hours which was still being well supported by the die hard's of the night ,Floor was still busy with dancers till the very last records played by Jez & Paul who did there job of sending the crowd home happy in style 

    This is an NOW an established  all nighter in the sticks in Cheshire 

    Just a few words about the promoters for the night they are enthusiastic  amateurs of the soul scene  & they work  hard as a team very well indeed 👍

    The next All Nighter is Saturday 4th August put it in your diary & give it a go you know you want too !

    Its is in mine & lookin' forward  their SUMMER all nighter 





  5. Just a few words on Clive Read's Chill Out room from Sunday 

    Music policy was varied by & some interesting tunes played by all collector/DJ's that where invited by Clive

    Clive was a great host & always nearby to make sure if anything went wrong it could be sorted out , luckily we didn't have any issues 

    The room was very busy with other discerning enthusiasts enjoying the varied tunes chosen by all the spinners 

    This is the 2nd time this room as been added to this very successful charity event & it brings very refreshing music policy to the event

  6. Just a few words on the Archie 8th Anniversary 

    Got there about 9:15 Tony O was on the decks & the floor was very busy with dancers 

    The place was rammed to the rafters & i said it would be standing room only  & already a great atmosphere in the venue on arrival & a very welcoming & friendly crowd to boot !

    It was nice to see peeps i don't see often & catch up with a chat 

    Well organised by Errol & Keith long may it continue :wink:

    I could not pick out 1 DJ who stud out cause they where all equal in my eyes on the night !

    What a great night!! It was a musically enthralling education; every record except 2 was new to my ears and the night was sublime.

    1st event of the year & it went above all expectations 

    Healthy crowd in who knew the score of our music policy & went with what all the Collector/DJ's wanted to play 

    Floor was kept busy by the spinners with tunes from all genre of our music 

    It was refreshing to hear & see everyone enjoying the music,atmosphere & the venue 

    Just going to add a couple of comments made on Facebook who attended on Saturday 

    Janet Durose 

    l must say we went to the Sneyd Arms Tunstall northern soul for their first night of underplayed music and true to their word it was the best music l have heard for a long time and my feet are killing me.And it was a good venue.

    Kev Steele from Facebook

    Upfront and funky what more do you need, best music I have listened to for a long time. 
    Looking forward to the next one 20.01.2018. we need to support these guys top night.


  7. As i spent most of the night in the Dolly room this will be a review on how  i saw it 

    All the DJ's where up for it & all the crowd were up for it & the only way I can put it off the Richter scale 

    The diversity of the music played amazed me & yes i played my part in this 2nd room & its not just a second room it is supported by like-minded people  who want something a little bid different @ their nighter 

    We had Xover,Newies,Funk,Latin,R&B,Gospel,Modern,Blue Eyed,Northern 

    All the spinners respected the room & what we are trying to achieve @ the 3 Clubs & they gave us all positive feedback 

    I must give Danny Shakey Paton a special mention he set the equipment up perfectly up for us & also he played both rooms he was knackered at the end of the night &  i helped him out towards the end of the night double decking which we both enjoyed 

    Thank you, Danny,  from all of us for your hard work :thumbsup:

    No playlist will be posted 

     If you weren't there you missed out! 

    Till next year :wink:

  8. Wot a fantastic night it was !!!

    I spent most of my time in the Dolly room & yes i played a small part in the 8hrs the room was open 

    From the start to finish i listened to all the DJ's & i could not fault any of them & i complemented every 1 of them on there sets 

    They dug deep & made sure the punters were well happy 

    They showed how to mix the tunes from the whole spectrum of soul music from cheap to ultra rare without the A listed DJ tags

    In my eyes they are A listed  They won't be putting up playlists including me 

    We want the event to evolve into 1 of best All Nighters into the country & IMHO it will these guys who have promoted this event have a passion for the music they have got fed up will the more commercial side of the soul scene 

    The BUZZ in DOLLY room was tremendous if you want to hear & dance to something totally different this is where its at 

    NEXT DATE FOR THIS EVENT is SATURDAY 4th NOVEMBER ---- 1st Anniversary ----- no other All Nighters north of London 

    Give it a go you know you want too !!!!!!

    Atb Kev :hatsoff2:


  9. This was my 1st time here & what a night it was also djing in the Dolly Parton room so i spent most of my time in there

    Arrived at 8:30 pm with me mate Dave Cartlidge very easy to find loads of parking essential anyone attending 

    Venue is all on 1 level ideal for anyone who is disabled ,real ale which i do like 

    When we got into the Dolly Parton room Danny (Shakey) Paton was just setting his equipment up & playing a few out of his sale box Dave C  went & bought 1 of Danny's records straight of the decks . On a positive note Danny's equipment never let us down all night (perfectly set up for the room) :thumbsup:

    The music & the dancers  & everyone who supported the room & venue  were brilliant & got it as Jez has quoted 

    No playlists will be posted as we want people to visit the venue & experience the music we have to offer & enjoy in that moment in time 

    None of the dj's are  A listed, just enthusiastic & passionate about the music they love & that really showed on the night :hatsoff2:

    I think the next 1 in August will be even better So why not put it in your dairy & give us a try its an OV event with something different about it 

    Rare,Not So Rare,Funky,Latin,R&B,Modern,Crossover, 7ts,Gospel ,New Releases,Underplayed Semi Knowns & C/U's That was all played in the Dolly Parton room 

    That's all folks i hope some of you can make the effort & come & see what's going down on the decks & the word about this venue is already spreading !

    Atb Kev :hatsoff2:



  13. This was the 1st time iv'e attended this event & i was NOT disappointed  

    Music policy was rare & underplayed 

    There was an big gathering from the now lost in the soul history of our scene Cock O' Budworth soul nights & looks like this is  there the new 3rd Friday of the month event :)

    ALL THE DJ's did great spots well done guy's & 1 Lady DJ  & kept the floor busy & fresh

    Loads of collector DJ's in attendance 

    It was nice to see Ted Massey attending after his op & seeing him looking & recovering well 

    We had a DJ dance for charity which raised £195 in 2mins for Children In Need 

    There was a healthy crowd in 70+ this club as only been going for just over a year & its becoming ONE of the in places to be at

    I shall be there on the next one :thumbsup:
