    Another cracking afternoon of 60's Northern Motown and a bit of Ska thrown in, unfortunately Yocky couldn't make it (get well soon), Pete John and Jock kept the place rocking with a little help from our mate Andy Scoffin who stepped in to give the boys a break. Lots of familiar faces and plenty of new ones Phil and Carol from Padiham their first time at the Wheel and they loved it. Next up on the 28th May our dear friend local DJ Phil Stone he will have the place bouncing, our friends from Stoke making the trip why not join us at the best Soul Club in North sure to be a cracking afternoon. Thanks Pete John Jock and Andy for once again making our Sunday. Al Pat Kev & Sue
