Join us to kickstart our next new decade “ The Roaring 20s” and Soul ll Sole’s first gig of 2020 !!! We look forward to welcoming new and old friends once again !! X
  2. Join us for our last event of the year !!! Soul II Sole is now in its 4th year playing across the board modern soul sounds ...from your classic favourites remixed from some of today’s top DJs, cool jazz funk, and Nu disco. Mark Randle one of our residents is well known on the soul scene and has one of the best collections of soul with the knowledge to go with it. His love of sourcing the latest new releases brings us a fresh vibrancy at each event. Resident at king power modern room and hosting his own starpoint radio show are his current claims to fame along with many guest slot appearances. Steve Hodson is new to the modern scene, and brings his love of classic modern dance tracks and mixes it with his own love of soulful house to keep our dance floor busy at each event. Guest slots for him have included Southport Weekender, and The Blue room Lincoln. It was along withSteve that our vision for Soul II Sole began. Bringing a great modern soul night to the midlands. our guest this month is Mark ( Fish ) Coddington owner/DJ at First Experience records. Fish brings with him years of DJ experience along with his record stall of the latest and greatest vinyl and CD releases. Come and get yourself a Christmas present. Based at The Chase Nuneaton which boasts a hotel on site and an amazing food service in the cheap ( pub prices and football to watch as you dine should you need it !!) we offer one of the best nights in the area. our regulars come back for more each month and we enjoy new faces checking us out at each event to. We welcome you all to Soul II Soles Christmas party !!
  3. Autumn already .... where did our Summer go ..??!! But what a good one we’ve had !! Here we are with our final two gigs of the year and we all look forward to those dark cosy nights but we also have lots still to look forward too musically and no more so than at our next Soul II Sole. Mark ..Steve and myself are looking forward to bringing you yet more Nu Soul and as always your favourite floor fillers and mixes. We’ve had a Summers worth to listen to and collect ( that’s Mark for you !!x) We also bring you a new to Soul II Sole “Guest dj”. Many of you may know him if you travel about to get your Soul fix but others may not know of the djing talents we bring you by the name of Paul Goldmith ....... When asked to provide a bit of background information about himself he appeared a little concerned that there might be nothing to tell but we can assure you from the information Paul has provided that this man knows his stuff ... other promoters know that he knows his stuff and after October 13th so will you !! So I asked Paul a bit about himself and his early and current dj status. what was the first record he ever bought ? and with knowing that it was Tom Browns Funkin for Jamaica we know we’re on the same page from the start !! Born in London, moving to Bedfordshire at the age of 3. Growing up and attending early Caisters, Southport, Norfolk Village and many concerts up and down the country including Maze 4 times! Paul’s musical interests when I asked him are “new music and….errrr…new music” lol Paul tells me as far as djing he had done nothing in earnest since his early twenties but got an opportunity to join Starpoint in 2009 and he’s been there ever since. Shortly after he became exposed to many other fantastic nights, in the North West particularly, mostly north of his home in Milton Keynes. Paul’s current claims to fame now are quite impressive having been resident with Soul Underground since 2009, Vybe from 2011, Freestylin’ from 2012, at LSW since 2014 and now Hustle as well as Bolsoul. So things look great for Paul And we hope he finds a very welcoming and appreciative audience here at Soul II Sole too !! So after all that it’s a case of get this in your diary. !! We’re only 3 weeks away !! Book the night off !! Get a room (at The Chase!!) Book a meal and most importantly see you on the dance floor. Sharon .. Steve & Mark x
  4. Here we go again ...for our mid Summer Special. Let’s feel the heat !!! Local Brothers Geoff and Mark Goddard are gracing our Soul II Sole decks for the first time and we feel a real buzz about this .. !!! Bringing with them their years of dj experience and their current love of new Disco ( mine too !! ) we know you’re going to want to be on the dance floor !! So without further adieu I leave you with The Brothers Goddard’s own introductory .... Book a room at The Chase / Enjoy a meal in the Bar and see you there !! It was forty years ago this year when I had my first set of double decks. Most of my earlier musical education came from thumbing through my brothers record collection, listening to Tony Prince on radio Luxembourg and then Sunday nights at the Chase Hotel. For someone who was about to reach his 16th birthday, they were the most exciting times. So fast forward, if you can, forty years and it’s back to the Chase once again with my brother and his expanded record collection. Steve and Sharon, the Sole II Sole promoters are running these nights for their love of music. Time is spent dressing the function room elegantly, the sound system is nothing but quality. There are only a few local nights for lovers of black music and promoting is a thankless task, so put the tv remote down on June 22nd and come and join us on the dance floor.
  5. Once again on Saturday 11th May 2019 from 7.30pm-12.30am we open our doors at The Chase Nuneaton for our next night of soulful Dance. Resident Djs Mark Randle and Steve Hodson Will once again be searching the current new releases as well as some well loved tracks to bring you their usual mix of soulful house .. cool Steppers.. re mixes and some great Latin and jazzy vibes.

Old friends and new. ., come along for an afternoon of some great Nu Soul .. just what Sunday’s were made for !!
  10. Following on from our resounding success at The Greene King Stadium we are back at Hinckley’s The Green Rooms for this one .. Our two guest djs are Dave Hulmes and Tony Shawcross .. two guys with a massive wealth of Modern Soul knowledge between them. Having asked them both to write a brief resumé of themselves I could not put either into better words so without further adieu I present David Hulmes and Manchester’s very own Tony Shawcross ....... Blog for David Hulmes. An original Northern soul boy, who cut his teeth listening to the likes of Searling & Soul Sam. Dave’s taste has always been progressive. In 1991, after Parkers, Dave ended up at an all-nighter in Bradford at the Queens Hall. Downstairs a number of D.J.'s were playing mostly house (Dave Hawkins & Barry May etc.). Here he bumped into an old friend from the 80's, Robin Salter. Robin, now living in London, and working for Time is Right records, gave Dave a tape and said it was garage and street soul. In 1995, Dave began playing on a pirate radio station where he called his show ‘The Lift - Up Show’ after the track on Shelter Records. This is where he began playing this ‘Nu Soul’ music. 21st Century Soul was born in 1999 and Dave began to push his brand of vocal/soulful house under the nose of anyone who may take up the banner. He has since been lucky enough to play at The Hilton Weekenders, Prestatyn Weekenders, Morecambe Soul Weekenders, Soulful Dance Weekenders, Vybe, Scottish Soulful Weekenders and a variety of other soul venues across the country. He also held down a weekly Saturday evening slot on Starpoint Radio for seven years. Someone recently commented on Facebook that 'He Knows...' Tony Shawcross I’ve DJ’d at many major soul events including New Century all nighters, Ritz Manchester revival all dayer, Prestatyn weekend, Blackpool International soul festival, was one of the founders and residents of the very successful Seductive Soul in Manchester, played both Kefelonia and Ibiza soul weeks and recently played in front of 3000 at Bowlers Manchester alongside Trevor Nelson. Present a weekly radio show on in Manchester and have played at numerous gigs over the past 25 years. Sets can include 70,s, modern and upfront Nu soul music with a touch of Soulful House. So there we have it !!! To say we’re looking forward to this is an understatement .... and as it’s only 4 weeks on Saturday we’re sorting our records as we post !!! Share and See you there !!! Sharon & Steve x
  11. ## Please note ## changed Venue from recently advertised “Green Rooms” which is in Hinckley centre
  12. Soul II Soles May 12th Edition will soon be upon us and we are getting a serious buzz about this one ..!! We have the pleasure of introducing not one but two top DJs both of whom will bring their very own unique blends to Soul II Sole. Mark Randle is no stranger to us and we are incredibly pleased to welcome him back behind our decks for the fourth time. Mark is a very well respected DJ and alround top bloke who has already had a very busy year so far appearing as Resident DJ at Leicester king Power Modern Room, Prestatyn Soul Weekender in Lunars Modern Room and Alfreton Modern Soul night to name but three. Along side regular guest appearances at Soul Underground, Soul Fusion, Rugby and Cleethorpes and the long running now defunct Hinckley Soul Purpose. With Marks keen ability to hunt out the very latest Modern Soul we know we’re in for another great night. Our Second DJ again will be known to you and the Owner of Saturday nights VNC and one of the very best Radio djs in the business. Solar Radio’s very own Paul Philips !! Paul’s twice weekly radio shows command huge followings as Paul’s sublime knowledge and choice of all things modern and soulful is very well known. Paul’s career spans an amazing 40 years when he first discovered his love of Soul from listening to Greg Edwards and Mike Allen on Capital radio, Robbie Vincent ( London Radio) and the original Soul Pirate Radio Station Invicta. As more Pirate Radio stations appeared on the 80s airwaves playing Soul, Funk and Jazz Paul began his life long love of record collecting. In 1982 Paul began his very own Pirate Radio Station, gaining a cult following around South East London until he had his transmitter and studio equipment confiscated in 1985 by the DTI. The following year Paul answered an ad put out by Starpoint FM for new presenters which lead to five years of running regular shows and using his own engineering skills honed from having his own radio station. Playing all the newest releases as well as Classic 70s and 80s Paul continued to broadcast appearing regularly at the official site station at Southport Weekenders until joining Solar Radio in October 1998. Paul continues to travel far and wide collecting obscure 70s and 80s Soul and was approached by Joey Negro ( aka Dave Lee) of Z Records to compile his Volume II of Under The Influence. So there we have it ... Paul’s Virtual Night Club will become a reality (alongside Mark Randle and Soul II Soles very own Steve Hodson ) At Hinckley Football club “The Greene King Stadium ( please note the change of venue for this event) And of course there will be Chocolate ...!!! We look forward to welcoming friends old and new from 8.00 -1.00am On Saturday 12th May 2018.
  13. Soul II Sole Presents ..Andy Jackson Soul II Sole Are very happy to welcome you to our second event of the year and after the resounding success of our first event we want you to get this firmly in your diary as you’ll not want to miss a thing ..!! Soul II Sole are delighted to welcome back the extremely talented Andy Jackson and if you’re unfamiliar with Andy we can only say where have you been hiding ??! Andy brings with him his wealth of knowledge from many live gigs as well as running his own Radio show When Andy visited us last we asked him to write his resumé and we felt it was too good not to share again so without further adieu let Andy Jackson introduce himself ... Andy jackson resume Blinkers Off! Used to be my favourite phrase when talking to people about Nu Soul. Having first been inspired by Northern Soul in the 70s, like almost everyone, I always wanted to hear something different, new, soulfull. From then until now I have searched out the latest soul offerings from around the world and never been scared to drop an unheard track into my set. Many many years of djing and presenting both live and on the radio have given me the opportunity to introduce listeners and dancers to something they won't have heard before. There are more Soul DJs now than there has ever been but very few pay attention to the large space in front of them and the people sat around it. In my world that is the wrong way round. There should be no space and many empty seats. As I can't bear to be without my Soul during the week I host two radio shows on Infiniti (Sundays 8-10pm) and Groove On (Wednesdays 2-4pm) both shows have totally opposing playlists with Infiniti concentrating on the best of the new releases and Groove On spanning the decades and genres from 60s to Y2K. In 2017 I was mostly busy playing Jazz Funk, Nu Soul, Modern Soul and Soulful House up and down the UK. Was Resident at the massive Margate Soul Festival, Bridlington Weekend Modern Room, Long Eaton Boogie Room, Costa Del Soul, Sheffield City Hall and Bless The Funk Weekend I got to share my love of Soul with many different people. My favorite phrase now is You Can't Say Modern Soul without saying MMMMM :-)so There you have it !!! Soul II sole continues to grow as a club offering the latest modern Soul Sounds ....Smooth Steppers .. Soulful House .. Nu Soul and Cool Jazzy Vibes Our djs are second to non .. handpicked for their expertise in their field and sheer enthusiasm behind the decks ... we can guarantee you won’t be sitting down for long. Steve and I look forward to welcoming you on 10th March 2018 from 7.30pm -12.00am for those of you who might wish to make a night of it there are a few excellent hotels within a very short distance from our venue the nearest being The Premiere Inn at The Wharfe off Coventry Road Sketchley Grange Hotel The Longshoot off the A5 and The Island Hotel ( Jury’s Inn ) again off the A5
