  1. The dreaded Covid-19 restrictions have done for us .... sorry. Hoping to be back on Sunday 31st May with Steve LLoyd & Rob Hurcomb ... fingers crossed.
  2. Groovin' Episode Two 2020 brings two guests from the mid-northwest, no not America, Cheshire! We have the rather marvellous Tony Ollier and the indefatigable Soul Sam. We ease in to Sunday afternoon from around 1.30pm 'ish right through to anywhere between 8.00 - 9.00pm 'ish. Musically, expect a little bit of all things soulful with the occasional hint of jazz & reggae. Sam & Tony will be doing their thing somewhere between 4.30 - 7.00 pm 'ish and the Groovin' Gang, DenMac, Rob Kay, Dave Lucas & Kev Rodgers will be filling in the gaps. Episode One was great with 'Bully' and Ted Massey keeping 'the masses' entertained ... there's real ale, record sales and of course, samosas! Hope you can make it. Take care, Kev.

    GROOVIN'

    Groovin's first event of the year, sees two real soul afficinadoes bringing their passion, knowledge and records!, to The Tavern for Groovin' 2020 Episode 1. I give you ....(drum roll please) Mr Ted Massey & Mr Ian 'Bully' Bulloch, ta da! It all kicks off around 2.00 pm until at least 8.00 pm, our guests will be doing their thing around 4.30 - 6.30 pm 'ish with the resident Groovin' gang - Rob Kay, DenMac, Dave Lucas & Kev Rodgers doing their stuff before and after the guests. Music-wise, you can expect a little bit of everything, Motown though to soulful house and even an occasional touch of jazz, but it's mostly 60's & 70's mid-tempo quality soul music. It's free to get in, there's no car park, so it's 'on-street' parking but there will be free samosas and pakoras (usually!) late afternoon. Hope you can make it.

    Groovin' @ The Tavern is back with Episode 5 - 2019, for yet another dose of Soulful Ear and Foot Refreshment. An afternoon / early evening of all things soulful, brought to you by this time's guests from the rather unique, "Carib Soul Crew" and the superbly soulful Steve "Jay" Jackson with regulars, Rob Kay, Kev Rodgers, DenMac & Dave Lucas filling in the gaps! It all (gently) kicks off around 1.30 pm 'ish through to anywhere between 8.00 - 9.00pm, tends to fill up from around 3.00 pm. From a base of connoisseur & crossover soul, add in a little sprinkle of soulful house and just a touch or two of reggae, mix it together with a hint of northern soul and the odd litlle bit of jazz and you've got Groovin'. Here's how Andy 'Tats' Taylor, described it, earlier this year ..... "From the moment you step thru the doors at Groovin’, you can feel it !. Hope you can make it.
  5. Records sorted ..... see ya later if you're coming!
  6. Mmmm, best get my thinking-cap on about what to play, methinks!

    Groovin'

    Groovin' at The Tavern - an across the board, laid-back, Sunday afternoon soul scorcher, with regulars Rob Kay, Dave Lucas, DenMac and Kev Rodgers ... and this time's super guests JORDI RIPOLLES and JOHN MANSHIP. It all (gently) kicks off around 1.30 pm 'ish through to anywhere between 8.00 - 9.00pm Here's how Andy 'Tats' Taylor, recently described it ..... "From the moment you step thru the doors at Groovin’, you can feel it !. It’s not easy to define,but it’s a very warm feeling. I suspect it’s something that appears, when someone promotes a gig, with as much “heart and love” as these guys do, it sort of spills over into everyone Oh. that feelin again, it comes from deep inside ... I think it could be SOUL" And if that's not enough, here's what Chris Anderton had to say in Aug 2017 - "Well, what an absolutely fantastic day out at Groovin' yesterday! The people, atmosphere, music,cider and samosas we absolutely spot on. I don't want to exaggerate but at times yesterday's session was reminiscent of the great Horse and Groome Sunday sessions...surely the Daddy of all Sunday soul afternoons...it was THAT good!"

    ........ and I know it's going to be a lovely day!

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"

    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.
