    I'm very pleased with sound performance today. A few complaints it was too powerful. I made adjustments and pulled it back but it's very difficult to please everyone. I tried my best and hope someone noticed just how good that was.

    Dubbin your shoes, pin back your ears and commence your warm ups in preparation for the sheer audio delight created by the sound system of dreams, custom built and professionally set up it in a vaulted hall of hallowed soul. Oldies is coming! I really do look forward to this event. It's like a collection of all my favourite things, rolled together and served up as one delicious, mouth watering feast. I get to go out with my beloved and our friends, have a few beers, engage in idle banter, natter, chat and discourse, tell some stories and do some laughing, listen to some good tunes and wave my arms and legs about in vague time to the music. I'm also in the very fortunate position of being responsible and in full control of the sound system. I've been working on this music reproduction system for some years now. Garry and Shaun have been great to work with. They've listened to everything I've said, invested thousands of pounds and given me authority to set up in a text book manner. You would seriously question my sanity regarding the hours I have put into creating this sound. It doesn't just happen. There's far more to it than just wiring a pile of electronics together. And, sound engineering can be hazardous. One time I was running tests at home and wearing ear protection when a sizeable chunk of plaster plummeted from the ceiling. When those bass bins are 21 years old, I can make them blow out all the candles on their cake, such is the ferocity, velocity and volume of the air they shift. It's been a labour of love for me that has blossomed, borne fruit and damaged buildings. Every fault and bug has long since been identified, eradicated and is now just a distant, hazy memory. The sound has been perfected. This system, built with care, knowledge, love and money will perform to the very limits of its operational parameters with ease, grace and beauty. It could also loosen your fillings. I'm now into the phase of pragmatic experimentation and research and I strive to extract just a little more sweetness. I've applied forty years of audio, electronic and acoustic experience to provide this hall designed for audio performance with the most shit-kicking soul sound system I can muster. Though I have been involved in an advisory capacity with other sound systems, this is the only one I put my name to. But hey, what do I know? Come down, give it a listen, see what you think. You won't be disappointed and your ears will love you for ever for the sonic gift bestowed upon them.

    Looking forward to seeing our Soul Train friends again. This was our all time favourite event of 2014. Not staying over this year though, as the Grant Arms (Faulty Towers) is fully booked. However, we had such a good time last year we're planning on coming twice this year. Afternoon warm up and evening burn out! Hopefully, we've got a lift in the evening. Still recall the evening of the second anniversary in '13 when I spun the car 'round on The Grane while homeward bound due to listening to the free CD and driving a little over exuberantly in the wet. Safe journey's, my friends, see you there! Dan & Sharon.

    No more sleeps, Keiron, not even time for a quick nap! Setting out in an hour, see you soon. Looking forward to an evenings entertainment and possible reuniting with Shaz's missing jewels.

    Thanks for a great night. Good to see everyone again after our enforced absence over the last few months. Enjoyed the banter in the chill out/smoking chamber, particularly the music/poetry/literary interchange with Mr. Shoes. Looking forward to the October all dayer which was our all time favourite event of 2014.

    Had a great night, sound system fully deserved praise. EQ, power and balance all perfect, sweet spot in exactly the right place and stayed constant all night, no buzz, hum or distortion even when it was approaching full chat. I appreciate the effort, time and attention to detail that goes in to choosing, buying, maintaining and setting up a quality high fidelity music reproduction system. Your hard work pays off in the beautiful sound on the dancefloor. Thank you.

    Titanium knees sound much more robust than old fashioned ones. Mine sound like someone's playing the castenets when I bend at the knee. We're still on full economy drive at the moment and neglecting our usual haunts, but are seriously considering venturing out this moist Friday evening and looking forward to seeing Roman' s Legion!

    Notice Anything On The Festival Circuit?

    Have a dance lesson. Don't have a dance lesson. Do the walky thing, star jumps, shuffle. It's all part of the rich tapestry. There is a fine line between looking cool or looking a div on the dance floor, but who am I to judge?

    I'm sure we had more than £3 worth of soul last night. Great night out, thanks to all. Particularly enjoyed Martin's set, shame Declan couldn't make it. Dan & Sharon

    Speaker Cable

    I once told a guy at work I was a bit of an audiophile and he derisively questioned my sexual preferences. Check the connection points at amp and speakers too. My old quad amp and Gale speakers struggle to fit fat cable in. Here's some reviews http://www.whathifi.com/products/accessories/speaker-cables?page=1

    Very well done Kieron and Diane! A well attended, well organized night of soul. PA sounded cracking in the sweet spot and projected well into the room, dancefloor busy but enough room to swing my arms about and though the grouting was suspect, the smoking chamber outside was like a heated shed. A good venue, we'll be back in February. Dan & Sharon.
