  1. Join Scotters, Gouch and other guest DJ's / collectors for SOUL from 7-11 in the conservatory room at the back of the Stanwick Hotel. Plenty of parking, FREE admission, decent beers on tap or decent tea & coffee too! Here's the hotel website for more info if you need it or thinking of staying over: http://www.thestanwickhotel.co.uk Alternatively there's some other local B&Bs + Travelodges only 10 mins away at Thrapston or Kettering. Same deal as before...whatever your soulful preference at some time during the night you'll hear something to float your boat, cheap or rare, various tempos, 60's to current releases.

    ...Slight change of plan today that we'll be staying in the conservatory room side of the hotel, rather than the main room, for a much needed wind-down soul session after a busy couple of nights. It's more cozy on a day like today and this is also where we'll also hold just three more Sunday Soul Sessions this year: 14th May, 16th Jul and 24th Sept. Less is more Thanks in advance to today's guest collectors who will be sharing their soul along with Brian and I from 2pm will be Tricky, Pete Mattock, Sid, Tank, Stevie P and brothers Dean & Jason Lockwood. Cheers, Steve

    A few people have asked about food available....The hotel have confirmed they'll be serving up basket meals and other snacks over the weekend + those staying over get a great breakfast of course. Should be reasonably priced but if anyone wants to brave the cold for something more hearty there's also a great pub by the church just 5 mins walk into Stanwick (and a 24 hr McD's a couple of miles miles up the road on the edge of Raunds). Looks like it's gonna be cool out and maybe some snow, but with 3500 Watt sound systems in each room and top soul being served to top people across the weekend, should be warm inside at least! Ps..the Sunday Soul Session is now confirmed as starting at 2pm rather than the originally advertised later time and is shaping up very nicely for those interested. Cheers, Steve
    Needed that thanks after several weeks of not really going anywhere! Great mix of soul as always and usual banter with relaxed ebb & flow of dance floor time. Hopefully see a few of you at the Stanwick weekender for more of the same, otherwise at the next round at The Cali. Cheers all, Steve
  6. Blimey where's that time gone since the first one of these last September?! Working on making it up the A1 with a few of us again. Was a great day/night. Still glance back at those playlists (wants lists!) now and then. Cheers, Steve

    Cheers for sorting DJ times for the second room Len..Great line up in both rooms right across the weekend, really looking forward to seeing everyone again. Just a quick note to all interested in the Sunday Soul Session, now looking to start this soon after lunch rather than originally listed time of 4, so even more soul packed in the weekend if you want it! Still a few tickets left for either the whole weekend or just the individual days if you prefer..please contact Jem or click this link http://www.grooveonpromotions.co.uk/shop/ See you there, Steve.

    Anyone pondering what to do on the weekend 10/11/12 Feb, hopefully above summary and DJs listed so far should tell you all you need to know about the sort of soul you can expect to hear, but free to get in touch by PM if you want to know more. Len will post up DJ times for the 2nd room in the next few days...both rooms and all sessions shaping up to be great Still some rooms available at the hotel itself, discounted by 20% on normal rates (down to £60 for single room or £80 double)..including a cracking breakfast http://www.thestanwickhotel.co.uk/ Then maybe go for a walk round the brilliant nearby Stanwick Lakes http://www.stanwicklakes.org.uk/northampton/ before the Saturday or Sunday afternoon sessions. Or if you don't mind short taxi ride there's the Travelodge approx 5 miles away in Thrapston just off the A14 (J13), currently looking like about £40 a room there. Tickets moving well so please use the link in above post if you'd like to get on board for just one, two or hopefully all three days! Cheers, Steve
  9. Please PM if you have one of these in decent condition and might consider outright sale or trade(s). Thanks, Steve

  11. Blimey this has soon come round again! I'm easily tempted by most food. Looking forward to it as always and was great to play a handful of records alongside Brian at the last one. Cheers, Steve

  13. So very sorry to hear this news. I only met Paul about 5 or 6 years ago and feel lucky to have seen / heard him play some of his records a few times. Such a friendly man, brilliant sense of humour and amazing taste in soul...he put me on to some stunning records I might never have otherwise heard and I'll treasure them even more now. Rest in peace Paul.
