    First time at the new venue but not disappointed. Great music in both rooms and a good turnout on a bad night. Will be back in the near future.

    Oops 
     Forgot to post this review yesterday.  Bit more compis mentis today 
    Got there early about 10pm to give my immoral  support to Steve doing his 1st ever set at Bury.  And was I glad managed to get to listen to a fabulous young lady called Sarah Jane who was so enthusiastic.  she played some great records that where completely new to me.  then my old mate Steve  ( really is old ) graced the decks  despite his nerves he played a set of tunes with a bit of something for everyone.  
     Then spent the next don't know how long talking and listening normal nighter rubbish with like minded souls. Heard some top tunes played by the rebrobates that run the Kenwood suite. Stand out record for very personal reasons was Terry Callier.  Ordinary Joe  ( R.I.P Mark Clugston  ) played by the main man Robbo. 
    The night ended to soon with young Calvin playing out with one of my all time favourite records. I still love you. Seven Souls.  
    Brilliant night. Can't wait for the next one. Big thanks to the lovely Marcelle and everyone involved.

    Another great night at Lowton. Busy from the off right till the end. Great to see Brian Rae back behind the decks. Top tunes played all night from all the DJs. Well worth the drive down the motorway and East Lancs.

    Widnes63 got a reaction from PhilT in Grumpy Soul is back!   
    I feel a bit let down, I have been practicing ' the dance ' but nobody played too darn soulful ...so I stuck to my usual thing,
    besides that it was a great night, good variety of music in a dark moody room, what's not to like ?
    See you at the next instalment.

    My second visit to the Bury allnighter was just as enjoyable as my first, an excellent night. The only thing wrong was that the 100 Club was on the previous night. Those who know me know that I'm a regular at that Oxford Street iconic club but while on holiday in Zante a friend asked me if I wanted to go to the nighter and stay at their house. I took up the kind offer knowing that I couldn't do two allnighters on the trot, but I am a lightweight as there were several of my friends who did manage to do both, haven't got the stamina unfortunately these days.
    We were joined by two friends from Wales, Graham and Wendy, for our excursion to the nighter, so after a lovely Italian meal in Bury we went in to the venue. Almost as soon as we got in there I saw a few of my friends, Pete, Gail, Big Paul and others, good to see them. We went into the main room and found a vacant table to use as our base. One thing I like about Bury is that the main room while mainly uptempo Northern doesn't seem to feature many of the oldies that are overplayed, or at least in my opinion.
    The joy of having more than one room at a nighter is that you can flit from room to room at your leisure sampling different sounds. There was a “rare” room, billed as the Windsor suite but the name on the door is the Peel room, and a modern room, playing mainly house sounds. The problem is that often you wish to be in more than one place at once. I am unfamiliar with the names of most of the DJs, my apologies to them, did know some, Andy Dyson, Len, Denny, Calvin but all did the business. So many great tunes played but as usual can't only remember a few. Thanks to Len for playing Feminine Ingenuity, really one of my top favourites, and also to Andy for Don't Play The Role and Denny for the Poets.
    Certainly danced far more than I expected to and thanks to the excellent dance floor in both the rare and main rooms no bad after effects, i.e. pains down my legs later. When you hear records like Sir Joe, Sweet Little Girl, She's Gone, Sha La La, Ooh Boy!, She'll Come Running Back, Job Opening, etc. you have to get out of your set and move. Denny mixed some current and recent biggies with some classic sounds like the Tomangoes, Salvadors, Eddie Parker, just right for that time of the night.
    We left about 4.30, later than I'd expected as my friends don't stay till the end of a nighter, unlike myself, but I was a bit tired. When we got back to my friend's house after a cup of tea I was glad to get my head down and sleep. Later on Monday I got a bus from Bury to Manchester Piccadilly for my train and got home about 7.45, but was in bed really early.
    I really enjoyed the nighter, thanks to all concerned. I won't be at the next one as I've already booked for a weekender then, but hope to be able to get to more of these nights, thoroughly recommend it.

    Got to say that I had a great night ( as always ) on Sunday at Bury Town Hall. Great to catch up with all the usual reprobates including my old mate Denny Johnson now residing down under in Australia. Lovely to meet Bubbles and have a chat. Some great tunes played by the DJ,s
    Matt Sneath ended his set with a great record which I think was a new tune to my ears . Anyone remember what it was ? Matt ?
    Big thanks to everyone involved for another successful night

    Welcome back New Century Soul. Over 300 people from as far apart as Scotland, Norfolk. The West Country. Wales and everywhere in between is a testament to the anticipation that awaited the return of the legendary nighters. And I don't think people where disappointed, not from everyone that I spoke with. And that was a lot, believe me  Spent time in all three music rooms, record bar and surprise, surprise the foyer/ outside area. From a personal perspective the move from Radcliffe should have happened a few year's ago. Bury town hall is the perfect venue size wise, large enough to cope but small enough to create a intimate atmosphere. Thanks to everyone who was involved for making last night possible

    Where do I start. Simply Awesome. Sums it up. Just when I thought they couldn't top the last time. Guess what. They did. Every single DJ was at the top of their game it would be so unfair to single out anyone but im going to. Carl Fortnum. his last set up till 3am was simply sublime. It had for me everything from beat ballads through to as rare as they come uptempo dancers and everything in between. Joan, Phil and everyone who was involved take a bow. 
    Please don't let me be working on the 2nd July. When the legendary Andy Rix returns. Missed him last year.

    Had another brilliant night at Lowton. Chuffed to see the place so busy celebrating 20 years of top soul sounds. The dance floor was busy from the off and still full at 2pm. Well done to all the Djs; who as always played what we love. Let's hope those who came last night remember what a great night it was and return for more in April.
