Colin Curtis Funkytown Grooves Show Wednesday 14th September a Soul Underground 10th Anniversary Special
Yes a 3 Hour SoulGang Radio FunkyTown Grooves Show focusing on the Independent Soul Night Soul Underground based in Walsall West Midlands. The night celebrates it's 10th Anniversary with a session at The Lyndon House Hotel Walsall (Full Details Below).
And joining me in the studio to talk and select music from the 10 years of Soul Underground promotions is it's promoter & DJ Lin Taylor & friends.
Chatroom will be in full effect so you can join in the banter as usual on a Wednesday Night.
Its been a little while but we have finally found a new home for Soul Underground ..back where it all began in Walsall.
I have a lot to do sorting with Flyers and DJ's etc but just wanted to get the word out for now as its a fairly small but very pretty Hotel ( which many of you will know from staying there in the past) so you will need to move quickly to secure a room.
We're going to be at :
The Lyndon House Hotel
Upper Rushall Street
(Just off Jct 7 of the M6 down the road from the original Wharf ) .
The night will run monthly and we are planning an intimate Weekender there too in the coming months as there are a range of really suitable facilities with an amazing cellar bar and function room as well as the Conservatory that we have chosen.
This is ever such a lovely venue and its perfect for what we need which is to get back to how it used to be in the old days of The Wharf..we'll be staying with the diverse music policy we had then and once again we'll be bringing a variety of DJ's/collectors from all over the UK and inviting the European DJ's back too,so a wide spread of music will be aired with hopefully something for everyone .
I'm also really touched that Glenn Worthington has agreed to come out of retirement and play at the first night for us
The nights can start as early as required,there is an integral Bar in the Function rooms til at least 2 am and we can dance til we want to
Fish will have his Simply Soul stall set up in the function room too
If you want to book a room for the 17th September ,the rooms are really lovely and we have concessionary rates of
£30 per single including breakfast
£50 per double /twin including breakfast.
(For concessions please inform the Hotel that you are with the Soul Underground Soul Night when booking )
You can book in anytime after mid-day and enjoy the lovely outdoor terrace and barbeque in summer or the charming old bar with log fire in winter ..we can pipe the music through to all areas. Upon vacating the owner says that you can have a leisurely breakfast or stay in bed as there is no rush to check out on Sundays..if you want to stay a little while longer ,then there will be a lovely carvery available from 1 pm ( save going home to cook lunch)
I am aware that there are events programmed for this date and I am very sorry for the clash , something I've always prided myself on avoiding over the years but I had no choice at it was this date or Aug 13th which was just too soon .
I hope some of you will come and support our new night , the great thing about this venue is that its privately owned, no changing hands here and we plan to stay and expand the night secure in that knowledge
Thank you for looking ..I'm ever so excited about this
