Grumpy Soul is back! on

Event Information



People kept asking so, after a few months trawling around, we're delighted to have found another venue for Grumpy Soul  :thumbup: ( special thanks to Steve Thomas)  See flyer below for full details. Special guest in June is Andy Dyson, with us four filling in the gaps as per. Music policy, same as it ever was.

The new venue is about 10 miles further along the M56 than the Runcorn club but we've been twice and it takes no longer to get to than the old place. It's also an absolute doddle to find and literally two minutes off the motorway. 

The room is roughly the same size as the old one with a decent stage and a good sized dance floor (no talc folks. It'll be polished so no need). It'll also be pitch black (Len :thumbsup:). Add in good parking, an ideal space for record sales, covered smoking area, sensible bar prices, easy access and it's a no brainer really.

Hope to see all the old faces first week in June then, plus a few new ones too of course!!!!

This is good news. I only went once to the Runcorn venue, for Joan's birthday. Travelled up with Billywhiz. Depending on dates will do my best to get to the new venue. The night I attended I thought it was a "proper Northern Soul" night, good mix of tunes, not too many of the same old.

Fortnum's vocals will sound amazing 

Carl sounded like Matt Monro before and his George Lemons was a dramatic improvement on the original, obviously.

My spine tingles with anticipation at the prospect of his rendition of 'pyramid' through those two whopping new amps. You've just gotta invest in that kinda talent.

Blue outside - matches my eyes, mind you after 1 red might be more appropriate 😎

Been absolutely knackered with a bad back for about a fortnight and have only just got up off the floor. (Meant I missed Mick's funeral which was gutting; rest assured, there'll be a good few of his favourites spun on the 3rd June and while it obviously won't be the same without him he'll be there in spirit for sure).

Really looking forward to catching up with folk, having Andy guesting for us and seeing how the new gaff goes down. 

Reckon it'll be a cracker of a night.

Just two weeks to go before our first night in the new venue. We're really looking forward to it and hope to see a few of you there. Like Phil said, it won't be the same without Mick but we'll all remember him the way we knew and loved him x
