    Groovin' at The Tavern

    ........ and I know it's going to be a lovely day! Well, it usually is and this one shouldn't be any different, because not only do we have a fantastic hardcore support, we've got two really superb guest DJ's in Mark Whiteley & Dave Bentley ...... both with soul music collections to die for. I'm here to tell you we're back again for another Super Soulful Sunday Session on Sunday 22nd July, with our guests and the usual Groovin' Gang bringing you another large dose of soulful ear and foot refreshment on a sunny Sunday afternoon, if this sounds like your sort of thing, then the place to be from around 2.00pm onwards is The Tavern, 123 Nottingham Road, Derby, where Rob Kay, DenMac, Dave Lucas and myself will be on hand to add to the afternoon's proceedings. Hope you can, make it. Kev Here's what Cliff Steele had to say about the last one ..... "I had a top day at Groovin on Sunday, such a buzz to play an across the board set to a proper broad minded soul crowd, from Dusty Springfield to A Hundred Birds, and all styles in between. Quality music and great company all day long. Thanks for the invite Kev, see ya at the next one"

    Groovin'

    Another Sunday afternoon of soulful ear and foot refreshment, brought to you courtesy of the Groovin' Guys - Dave Lucas, Rob Kay, Den Mac and Kev Rodgers with this times guests, CLIFF STEELE and MARK JOHNSON.

    Groovin'

    Just popped on to give everyone a 'heads-up', that, unfortunately, the kitchen's still not quite up to speed yet, ..... so we've ordered in some soul food .....well, actually it's more of the rather tasty veggie samosas & pakoras we had last time, but if that's not for you, you'll need to sort yourself out.... sorry. Hope to see you Sunday, take care, Kev.

    Groovin'

    Another afternoon (Sunday 6th August) of soulful ear & foot refreshment, courtesy of the Groovin' gang with special guests Simon Hunt & Chris Anderton ..... here's what our friend Hector had to say after a Groovin' afternoon, earlier this year ...... i'm trying to think of a more convivial,joyous,friendly welcoming vibe than i experienced yesterday at Groovin' and it's a toughie..i'm reading "love saves the day" at the moment about american dance music culture in the 70s and i wouldn't have swapped a night at the Loft or the garage with Larry for my all too brief time at "grooving" yesterday.brilliant people,brilliant music with a touch of magic that happens when something is just right...massive respect to everybody there and thanks to Kev Rodgers and the crew for making it happen So, if it sounds like your sort of a thing, we'd be happy to see you, take care, Kev

    Groovin' at The Tavern

    Sunday, Sunday so good to me ...... (to mis-quote The Mama's & The Papa's). Well, it promises to be good because we've got two rather marvellous guest DJ's in the form of the rather lovely CARMS and the scumptious NIGE BROWN for our inaugural event in our new home ..... I'm looking forward to hearing what they might bring to the decks, hope lots of you can make it, take care, Kev.

    Groovin' at The Five Lamps

    Well then, what to say ..... firstly a monster thank you to all of you guys for coming along and making Groovin' a wonderful place to be. So, if you weren't there, you missed a great soulful afternoon, with some rather splendid music from Bob Snow & Terry Wright, ably assisted by Mr Lucas & Rob Kay....but additionally, you may also have heard, that it was our last Groovin' at the Five Lamps and so it was. Graham, the landlord spoke to Rob & I at around 2.00pm yesterday after we'd set up, to say it would be our last one and that we wouldn't be welcome there any more....... which is disappointing, because it's a great little pub and we felt that Groovin' was slowly building a real good support base ...... anyway, it's their loss, let's not dwell on the whys and wherefores, it was great while it lasted. So then, we're going to be in the hunt for a new venue and as soon as we have anything to tell you, we'll let you know - Thanks for all the suggestions and offers so far. Take care, be happy! Kev

    Groovin' at The Five Lamps

    So, second Groovin' of the year is less than 12 hours away ..... hope you've all had a lovely time, on day this cracking Spring day, barbecueing, gardening, chillin', watching your favourite footy team or just some nice family time .... so, if you fancy some real soulful ear & foot refreshment tomorrow afternoon, we'd be happy to see you at the The Five Lamps in Derby, where we're gonna be Groovin' .... with Terry Wright & Bob Snow & Rob Kay & DenMac & Dave Lucas & yours truly .... it's a gentle start from around 1.30pm 'ish through to somewhere between 8.00 - 9.00 pm 'ish. If you can't make this one, we're gonna be doing it all again in a couple of months time on June 4th, perhaps, we'll see you then? Take care, Kev

    Groovin' at The Five Lamps

    Well, we've got our finger out and booked another couple of cracking DJ's for the next Groovin' ......... Terry Wright & Bob Snow, who comprise 50% of the very successful Soul Not Dole franchise as well as regular appearances at the Skegness Crown Jewels Soul Weekend .... they're two very nice people, both with superb soul music collections ......it promises to be another great Sunday afternoon at The Five Lamps!

    Groovin' at The Five Lamps

    After a cracking first Groovin' of the year in Feb, we're back again at The Five Lamps for some more soulful, ear and foot refreshment. It's usually a gentle start from around 1.30 - 1.45 pm 'ish through to somewhere between 8.00 & 9.00 pm 'ish. Pub grub's available from 12.00 through to around 4.30 pm - if it takes your fancy, you there's why not turn up early, have a relaxed lunch and sample one or two of the many real ales on offer - the Plum Porter is fantastic, if it's still available! Musically, it really is "across the board" , with the usual suspects of Rob Kay, Dave Lucas, DenMac and Kev Rodgers bringing you all things soulful along with a couple of guests, one of whom, is likely to be Bob Snow - gotta firm that up yet though. The Five lamps is situated at 25 Duffield Road, Derby. DE1 3BH. Check out this link /address for more info. http://www.fivelampsderby.co.uk/
