  1. He means it you know.
  2. What a fantastic last night at the old Gas Club. It'll be a shame to see it go, but, let's face it, it was falling down round our ears. :-) If the turn-out and quality of music played are any sort of guide, then the new Gas Club Soul at Crookes Club is going to be stupendous. It's unfortunate there's going to be a couple of months gap, but that'll make it all the more worth waiting for. The people now running the club have put a tremendous amount of work in to revive this event and deserve all the support they get. Here's to you all guys, and see you at Crookes. :-)
  3. Loads of top comments on FB about your spot Shelly. Brilliant stuff. A few samples: Mick Waddington John is Shelley replacing that Pinches fellow Barry Kgb Holland As I walked up the stairs I could hear .Albert Jones blasting out and I knew it was going to be a belter of a night. Well done Shelley Susan Stutting Fabulous playlist Shelly. Linda Langley Billy Stewart and Barbara Mason.... brilliant Shelly x Derek White Another top night at the Horti. Residents and guests all great. Enjoyed it all. Shelly did steal the show tho' Looks like you're building a fan base.

  6. Great night again at the Horti. Thank so much to all those who continue to support us. We know some travel quite a distance. It's always good to see you. We were treated to two superb spots from our guests Jez Wroe and Errol Green, thank you guys, but a special mention must go to Shelly Goddard, on her very first ever session behind the decks, who played a blinding hour. Magic stuff all round. We now must look forward to our February 17th, 8th anniversary special. All proceeds, including door cash, will go to Weston Park Hospital. I know many have had personal experience of this hospital one way or another, and recognise the brilliant work they do. We will have CDs for sale, and will be holding a raffle. If anyone has anything they'd like to donate to the cause, please bring it along on the night. Guests on the night will be Gary Smith and Mick Waddington. We're in for a cracker. I'll post more details later. Cheers from the Horti crew.
  7. Top stuff.

  9. If it's a toss up between Baz and a box of records, bring the records.
  10. Darnall Horti' Soul Club

    Our second Friday night bash of 2017, and our 8th anniversary event. Yes, it's flown by, but it's been eight years since we embarked on our journey to seek out and bring to you the finest rare and underplayed soul music, always only on original vinyl, with the best DJs we could find. This month we welcome the original founder of Darnall Horti' Soul Club, Gary Smith. The Horti was Gary's brainchild, and here we are, eight years on, still demonstrating that quality soul music has no equal. Alongside Gary we have our friend Mick Waddington, one of the Horti's staunchest supporters and owner of a cracking collection. To celebrate this fantastic landmark date, we intend that all proceeds, including door receipts, will be donated to Weston Park Hospital. So, if anyone has anything they would like to donate to our raffle, please bring it along. We will continue to run on the 3rd Friday of the month, from 8.00pm to 12.30am and entry is still only £3. Why not come along and enjoy great and knowledgeable company, excellent beers and a warm, friendly atmosphere.
  11. Shame you couldn't make it. You missed a good 'un. Hope the bedroom appreciates the sacrifice.
  12. Bugger the bloody paint job. It'll look better after a few beers anyway.
  13. Darnall Horti Soul Club

    Our first Friday night bash of 2017, and we welcome special guests Jez Wroe and Errol Green. After a tremendous 2016, with numbers consistently up, we're looking forward to the New Year. As we approach our 8th anniversary in February, we will maintain the highest quality in soul music, always only on original vinyl, with the best DJs we can find. We will continue to run on the 3rd Friday of the month, from 8.00pm to 00.30am and entry is still only £3. Why not come along and enjoy great and knowledgeable company, excellent beers and a warm, friendly atmosphere.
  14. You would hope so. Still out and out fraud, in my book.
  15. This is actually described as 'original, 1969'. Enough to fool someone not totally knowledgeable.
