COLIN CURTIS UPCOMING GIGS
23 October at 21:30 - 24 October at 03:00
Location Ruby Lounge
28-34 High Street
Manchester, United Kingdom
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.
