Bought my first soul records in 1965, went to the Mojo club Sheffield, Twisted Wheel Manchester, the Attic Doncaster where I played from 1968 - 1970. Also went to lots of the other great clubs, too many to name, have been DJing for over 50 years and promoting my own soul events .
Apologies everyone and thanks for all the help so far, but due to the virus situation this date is cancelled but re arranged for Saturday November 14th, so hopefully we can get together then. Best wishes Al Taylor.
A GREAT ATTIC SOUL CLUB 50 YEAR RE UNION CHARITY EVENT, NOT TO BE MISSED BY ANYONE WHO WENT THERE BACK IN THE LATE 60TS
OR BY ANY LOVER OF THAT ORIGINAL ERA OF ''SOUL MUSIC'' OR BY ANYONE WHO ENJOYS SUPERB DANCE MUSIC WHATEVER TEMPO IT MAY HAVE BEEN BACK THEN....THE ATTIC IN DONCASTER WAS HOST TO SOME OF THE TOP SOUL ARTISTS OF THAT ERA, THEY INCLUDED J J JACKSON, FONTELLA BASS, MARY WELLS, INEZ & CHARLIE FOXX, THE TOYS, EDWIN STARR , THE PLATTERS, BEN E KING, Jnr WALKER & THE ALL STARS, BILLY STEWART and others. THE MUSIC PLAYED WAS BRILLIANT, THE CROWD WAS TOO, THE DANCE FLOOR WAS OF A MAPLE SPRUNG STYLE AND YOU COULD FEEL IT UNDULATE ONCE THE CROWD GOT DANCING & THE ATMOSPHERE WAS ELECTRIC.
HOW DO I KNOW THIS ?....BECAUSE I WAS THERE NOT JUST AS A PARTICIPANT, BUT ALSO BECAUSE I PLAYED SOME OF THAT MUSIC, SO DON'T MISS THIS NIGHT, BE THERE AND SUPPORT THE FUNDRAISING FOR THE MOTOR NEURONE DISEASE ASSOCIATION AND MAKE THIS EVENT ONE TO REMEMBER, SO THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SAY ''I WAS THERE''.....SEE YOU ALL ON THE NIGHT, BEST REGARDS, AL TAYLOR.
DJs FOR THE NIGHT, TONY & PAT CULLEN, DENIS B, STAN the MAN, and your's truly AL TAYLOR.
