Dynells - Call On Me

The Qube

I'm looking forward to the Qube in Sheffield tomorrow night. I can't see how it can fail to be anything but a great night as my favourite DJ Soul Sam will be appearing. It's their 8th anniversary so it should be a good night all round.

Barrow Hill

What a great night at Barrow Hill last Saturday. There were plenty in, making a good atmosphere with the dance floor mainly full, throughout the night. All DJ's played great spots, Stuart, Keith, guest DJ Martin Dixon and Terry Westhead (making his debut). On the whole a wonderful night of across the board soul. What more could you ask for! Next month at Barrow Hill Oct 4th is a special wedding reception night as Stuart and I are to be married in Las Vegas Sept 24th. All soul fans are invited. See you there.

A Tribute To Earl Nelson/Jackie Lee

I've just heard the sad news, one of my favourite singers Jackie Lee has passed away. He has entertained me with his brilliant music for 35 years. Here are a few of his records which I have always enjoyed dancing to.

Vault Of Soul

I thoroughly enjoyed my first visit to the Qube in Sheffield last night. The music was excellent from all DJ'S. It was mostly crossover which was a bonus, as I don't seem to hear enough of it these days. I made the most of it with lots of dances. Thank you for a great night out. I shall definitely be back.

Tuesday, 8 July 2008

Barrow Hill Soul Club

I think everyone had a good time at Barrow Hill Soul Club Saturday night. The dance floor was busy most of the night thanks to great spots from Stuart, Keith and Chris. Stuart and I shall have to miss next month due to my son Daniel and fiance' Meg getting married the day before in Missouri. Neil shall be helping Keith in Stuart's absence with Guest DJ Glyn Sissons.

Another Good Night At Calow!

It was another enjoyable night at Calow. The music was good, especially from guest DJ, Andy Riley who played a nice mix. It was nice to see a few people which I don't get to see too often these days. I'm really looking forward to next month.

Monday, 5 May 2008

Barrow Hill

What a good night, great music and atmosphere. The guest DJ Dougie Hall played an excellent spot of across the board soul. Also great spots from both the regular DJ'S Stuart and Keith. Thank you to everyone who attended to make this yet another wonderful night to remember. Hope to see you all again next month, June 7th. With guest DJ Steve Austin from Bestwood.

Calow

I can't believe how fast this month has gone. It doesn't seem more than a few days since the opening night of the Calow soul venue. I'm really looking forward to tonight and hoping it will be as enjoyable as last month. This venue has one of the best dance floors in the area. Almost as good as Barrow Hill, ;-). Also another advantage for me is it's only 5 miles from my home.

Barrow Hill Soul Club - April 5th 7.30 'til late

I'm looking forward to Barrow Hill tomorrow night. The guest DJ is Al Taylor. There will be free CD's on the door as it's our 3rd anniversary. If you haven't been before you won't be disappointed. It's across the board soul music with a superb dance floor, what more could you ask for! See you there.

Calow Soul Night

What a great first night at Calow. I wasn't sure what to expect, but was not at all disappointed. The venue was really good with a brilliant dance floor. There were enough people for a nice atmosphere but not packed, probably due to the Skegness weekender. I'm looking forward to the next one now at the end of April.

Prestatyn

Sorry I haven't presented any posts lately. I've been really busy with house guests recently. Prestatyn seems a long time ago and the weekend went so fast that it felt like it never really happened. I spent most of my time in the modern and crossover rooms and thought Soul Sam did excellent spots. All the acts were exceptionally good, I really enjoyed them. I'm hoping to go back in October as it's my birthday weekend and I would love to see the Spinners.

Tuesday, 29 January 2008

Bestwood

Had a good night at Bestwood. There were plenty in and it was nice to see a few people which I hadn't seen for a while. The music was good, but I expected to hear more modern. Steve Austin did a good spot even though he forgot to play my request. He's in trouble next time I see him, lol. It's Barrow Hill next Saturday with Guest DJ, Barry Cooper. Keith is away on holiday so it's thanks to Neil Page, who will be helping out again. Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Prestatyn

Only six weeks to Prestatyn. I'm really looking forward to it as usual. I have heard a rumour that this will be the last one, hopefully it's not true. Anyway whatever the outcome I'm sure it will be another enjoyable weekender.

Bob Relf

I have placed two records today in memory of the great soul singer Bob Relf, who saddly passed away, November 20th 2007. He was born in Los Angeles January 10th 1937 and made his first solo record Little Fool in 1956. As we all know there were plenty to follow. He also recorded under the name of Bobby Garrett and in 1962 he replaced Bobby Day as part of the duo Bob & Earl. His music will live on in our hearts forever!

Tuesday, 8 January 2008

What a good night!

I think all who attended Barrow Hill Saturday night thoroughly enjoyed it. There were plenty in which lead to a good atmosphere. A big thanks to everyone for making this such a good night and especially to Guest DJ's Rob Wicks and Mort. Hope to see you all again next month, February 2nd.

Happy New Year

Hope you all have a great 2008. I started the New Year off at Annesley and had a really good time. It wasn't over crowded and the atmosphere was just right. Saturday Jan 5th is our venue at Barrow Hill with Guest DJ's Mort and Rob Wicks. It's Phil's birthday so hopefully we shall get a good crowd in to help him celebrate.

Wishing you all a Soulful New Year!
