Hardly seems possible that this time last year I managed to persuade Ginger Dave & Roger to start up a soul nite in South London. Filling the hole left by the much missed Blue Skies in the local area, and taking on the hallowed venue once occupied by These Old Shoes. We were under no pressure then….Posted Image
Since then we’ve had a do every other month, and the reception and enthusiasm from the venue, the guest DJs and our punters has been amazing. We’ve kept to our ‘if it’s soulful; play it’ policy and it sems to have struck a chord with everyone who has been down.
The venue changes hands at the end of May, so a great turnout wil help convince the new owners to keep us all on. As I read on someone’s signature line on Soul Source recently, support your local event like it’s the last, because one day it will be.
For our anniversary, the ever cheerful Bunny from Kent Soul Club is guesting for us, and we are pleased to welcome back Warren Boogaloo as our headliner.
We’re on ’til 2AM, in our airconditioned, wooden floored cellar at The River Bar, 206 Tower Bridge Road, SE1 2UP. Entry as usual £3 before 9PM, £5 after. For a special treat, a free CD for the first 20 paying punters through the door, containing a compilation of tracks selected by loads of our guests from the last year. Plus a free anniversary badge to all who attend.
Dave, Roger and I look forward to seeing you down there.
Next gigs – Jul 23, Sep 17 & Nov 19.
