  14. People are selling tickets who can't make it in the facebook event here - https://www.facebook.com/events/1423536127694046/
  15. Hi Mary It includes a link to the website which tells you if it's sold out or not, I've just edited it so it says sold out now, we direct everything via the website which has said sold out for some days. I'm sorry to hear you booked hotels, I personally would never do that without buying tickets for an event, for example Blackpool would buy tickets first then hotel. There are a lot of good soul events on in the Midlands tonight, I would recommend Tony Reynolds' event in Birmingham, I've attached the flyer below. Hope you have a good night and make sure you get tickets next time as it's a popular event Mazzy xx

  18. The Big Birmingham Soul Night returns 24 February 2018 Only just over two years old, the intimate The Night Owl has become renowned as the UK’s premier soul & retro club. Last April they teamed up with the prestigious Town Hall for the biggest soul night Birmingham has seen in over 30 years. The Big Birmingham Soul Night harked back to soul nights of the 60s and 70s, was programmed by The Night Owl and held at Town Hall, Birmingham. This beautiful listed building boasts a giant wooden floor, perfect for Northern Soul and Mod style dancing, with an elegant balcony for those who would prefer to just relax and enjoy the dancing below. There was also a smaller second room of music, with its own bar and seating. The launch event was a big hit, reaching capacity by 11pm, with happy faces and both rooms 1 and 2 full of people dancing to good soul music. Feedback from the event was incredible, with original Northern Soul DJs Colin Curtis and PEP calling it ‘the best soul night in Birmingham’, finally putting the city on the map for Northern Soul. Confirmed to head up this evening is legendary DJ Soul Sam who has been DJing in soul clubs since 1968. His favourite records include Joseph Webster’sMy Love Is So Strong and The Velvelettes’ These Things Will Keep Me Loving You. DJ's Soul Sam PEP Jordan Wilson Sonny & Spare Paul Cook Mazzy Snape Andy Burns Josh & Rich & more Tickets available at https://www.thsh.co.uk/event/the-night-owl-birmingham-town-hall-present-the-big-birmingham-soul-night#tab0=details
  19. Haha that he has! Doesn't look like a stable situation to me
  20. Haha makes me laugh how different people's opinions are, everyone likes what they like... Just wondered if there was a historical reason or anything, maybe I've got it wrong anyway. Shit nights ha ha oh dear here we go again, I do wonder why I disappear off here for months and months on end. Now back to the advert...
  21. Thanks Rick, might be a bit heavy do you think? I do have a pal who's a great carpenter though so will investigate!
  22. Does anyone know where I can get some double/large 45 record boxes like those jazzman ones? Looks like they sold out at the time but I've been looking for ages for something similar with no luck I can't seem to find anything that isn't either really ugly or really impractical Love my vintage small 45's boxes, but it's hard to carry more than a couple at a time due to awkward handles. Has anyone seen any reproduction / vintage larger record boxes (like double or triple size of normal boxes)? Either in a shop or online? I don't like the modern looking metal ones Any help appreciated
  23. No it's not tongue in cheek haha Just when I've been outside of Brum and heard it play it's not been as much of a dance-floor filler although obviously it's a really well known song I just wondered if there was any reason or if it's just random

  25. What they've done is use inspiration from a few things and pulled it together - so there is something from Africa I think combined with Northern Soul - it's not strictly a Northern Soul influenced thing. The clothes and production of it all does seem more Soul Train than Northern but it still looks fun and vibrant, good music etc. I doubt anyone is going to be so affected by it that they turn up dressed like that to an all nighter haha It's not like anything else I think that's their idea? Fashion draws from cultures old and new to make something unique or that's the idea? On another note, The Night is a massive tune in Birmingham, instant floor-filler but I've noticed it's not so big elsewhere (North or South), I wonder why that is?
