The Ad-Lib Club “Back to the Roots” – Guest DJs Mik Parry & Gav Arno
7th October 2017 @ 6:45 pm - 8th October 2017 @ 12:30 am
50s/60s Original Vinyl Only Club. R&B, Early Soul, Original Jamaican, Blues, Jazz flavours, Hammond Grooves, DooWop Ballads-whatever the djs on the night decide. Cut off year 1966.It’s their take on the early sounds that helped to develop the original early to mid 60s soul/r&b/mod underground scene.
Tonights guests are Mik Parry and Gav Arno of Sheffields Pow-Wow who will be playing their “Birth of the Cool”clubs take on the scene. Popular regular Colin Brown(London) will be playing a Jamaican set in the chill-out lounge. Colin was a regular in the 60s at The Roaring Twenties Jamaican Club in Londons Carnaby Street. Andrew and Eileen Vasey are selecting a jazzy set for the chill-out lounge (chuffed about this as our club hasn’t really played much of this gendre which was such an important part of the early scenes mod culture).
Martin Greene, Steve Longworth, Allan Swires, Christian Scott and Howie Houghton are all playing selections from their exceptional Original Vinyl collections.
Tickets bought before the event are £4.00.Tickets otd (if still available on the night of the event )are £5.00.
The aim of the club is to be true to the roots of the scene,its many gendres and in recognition of its trail-blazing artists, most of whom never got the rewards or fame at the time that their work deserved.One of the reasons we support rare and underplayed OV is to show recognition to djs/collectors/dealers who have spent hours and £sss sourcing unknown artists and tracks from the early years and have in doing so made the r&b scene so exciting and fresh today.
It’s Saturday night.It’s pure 60’s cellar-bar clubland.It’s the Flamingo,the Scene !It’s hot,sweaty thirsty work. Some of the best djs around play this club and love it !!This isn’t a club taking a nostalgic look back to those golden years.It’s a club that looks forward with CULT and STYLE but knows that HISTORY plays the biggest part in todays scene.
Get “suited and booted”,smart casual,dress to impress.This is what a Saturday night out in the 60s is all about.
