Northern Soul Night Halesowen
Only Northern Soul is still at the forefront nationally , and now gaining a worldwide following.
“ The term Northern Soul was first coined by journalist and American R+B expert Dave Godin. In 1971 on one of his trips up North to the legendary Highland Room sessions at the Blackpool Mecca. It’s music that when you hear it for the first time, you feel like you can relate to the lyrics and the uplifting melodies stay with you. So many of these records sound like they should have been chart hits. Unfortunately, due to limited budgets for promotion and distribution back in the sixties, they sank without trace until “the Northern scene” with it’s passionate collectors and DJs went to America and discovered these wonderful 45s on labels we had never seen before and performed by artists who amazed us with their talents. Over 46 years later , the Northern Soul scene is bigger than ever. Top-selling films have been critically acclaimed recently, and how often do we hear our favorite Northern sounds on TV adverts. This distinctive, emotional music is now showcased in many iconic venues in all parts of the UK.
Now we are bringing these classic sounds to Shirley British Legion by our very own DJ Stevie b all on Vinyl.
Get your dancing shoes on and grab your ticket quick for another fantastic night.
