Lowton soul coming back strong!

February 21st, 20121:10 pm @


With 3 events ( two in dodgy weather conditions) now under our belt, it’s feeling like Lowton is back to stay.

Guest DJs are now booked for the Northern room until well into 2012, with quite a waiting list too.

Our next night takes place on Friday March 9th when the guest will be Nige Brown, one of the UK’s most popular DJs and a regular at events such as the Blackpool Tower, The Winter Gardens, Stoke Kings Hall etc.

Joining Nige in the Northern room will be Bob Hinsley, Ginger and myself and between 8.30 and 1.00am we will be featuring our usual blend of classic and quality underplayed 60s and 70s Northern.

Following a slow-ish start, the  second room featuring Modern soul classics has now picked up dramatically , with quite a large contingent making the journey from as far away as Yorkshire and the Midlands to hear sets from Bob and Barry Maleady. We will be introducing guest DJs in the Modern room in the near future with John O Donnell already slated to appear at the June event.

Lowton Civic has a huge free car park, great bar prices and record dealers and merchandisers are welcome to take up one of the 8 tressel tables on offer. Steve Plumb has displayed a superb selection of rare 45s at the last two events in addition to our resident record dealer, Glenn Brierley.
