OK folks, here we go again at The Mill and this time out it's a very special night indeed... It's our Louby's birthday actually 'on the day'!
We're delighted to welcome back Dodge and Paul, and are doubly-delighted to have the mighty CC on board this time out. How fab is that then!
Music policy is the finest new releases from the past 6 months (ish!) along with the current hottest tunes. Plus we'll take a minor meander down memory lane with Trev & me spinning some Arties Mill classics from 'first time round'....
Rooms at the ranch are already filling up fast, so as Fred Pontin said... "Book early!"
(And after last time got a tad 'cosy', it might be a good idea to secure tickets up front... £5 adv, £6 otd. PM me or Trev to sort)
Any volunteers to jump out of a birthday cake?.....

More info The 6th Annual ‘Yellow Reunion’ will take place at the Ruby Lounge on Saturday 23rd Oct 2010. The original ‘Yellow’ residents DJ’s Dave Haslam, Jason Boardman, and Elliot Eastwick will be joined by special guest DJ Colin Curtis (Rafters), plus Dave Law and Chris E.
Launched in 1992, ‘Yellow’ at the Boardwalk dominated Friday nights in Manchester for seven years, a magical mix of people getting off on classic New York disco, rare groove, deep funk, and bass-shakin’ hip hop right up until its final night in February 1999.
In 2005 the first ever Yellow Reunion took place, and since then it’s been an annual event, attracting many of the original crowd but a huge number of new converts too; the ‘Yellow Reunion’ is now a highlight in Manchester’s clubbing calendar.
This year we welcome special guest DJ Colin Curtis. In Manchester in the 1970s and 1980s, Colin Curtis was a pioneer, playing quality soul alongside John Grant and Mike Shaft at Rafters, and jazz-funk on his legendary Tuesday nights at Berlin. He was a big name with a big reputation nationwide too, DJing at Blackpool Mecca with Ian Levine in its halcyon period, and hosting major nights at clubs like Birmingham Locarno, and Nottingham’s Rock City. The quality funk, soul or electro, we all know and love; he played it.
When it was new!
Also at the ‘Yellow Reunion’, hosting the back room; two of Manchester’s finest purveyors of underground house; Dave Law (All Back to Ours) and Chris E (Out of the Gloom).
This will be a wonderful event. You’ll hear Shannon’s ‘Let the Music Play’, Gwen McCrae, Bobby Byrd, ‘Mr Big Stuff’, Salsoul classics, Talkin’ Loud’s greatest hits, Chaka Khan, Marvin Gaye, Masters at Work, ‘Let No Man Put Asunder’, ‘Fantasy’, the Sugarhill Gang, and ‘Unfinished Sympathy’. Expect also, queues round the block and a selection of soul-stirring tunes that’ll blow you away.
Door Times: 9:45pm – 3:00am
Admission - £7 advance, £10 on the door
