The Pelican R&B Club, Loughborough – Guests Mace
4th November 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 5th November 2017 @ 1:00 am
Well we’re back for the last one of the year. After the balls up in August we’ve been assured by the management that it won’t happen again so we’re back on track for another night of dancefloor action. It will be the usual excellent mix of R&B, 60’s soul, dancefloor Jazz, Latin and boogaloo with maybe a bit of ska for good measure for your delight. Those of you who’ve been before (and we’ve noticed that we’ve got a good amount of club regulars these days, who are always nice to see) will know what to expect. To the uninitiated you’ve really missed out so far. We like to mix it up musically with plenty of new sounds mixed in with the underplayed and of course dancefloor classics so something there for everyone. Musically we aim for the sort of thing you’d expect to hear at clubs like The Scene or Flamingo for that early 60’s mod club vibe.
Every session it’s a different guest and we always pick from the best DJ’s currently on the scene. We have them on because they’re the best, not because of who they know. We’ve heard them play and liked what we’ve heard so know that you’ll be impressed by them.
As usual the resident four headed up by Mace, who needs no introduction being something of an institution on the mod scene, Martin who should really be in an institution, ably followed by Andy and Karl who despite appearances do actually know what they’re doing..
As well as the quality sounds played, another thing people comment on is the room. Smart, just the right size-not too big, not too small and because of that people mingle and chat with complete strangers which I’ve not seen for years. A very friendly vibe as those who’ve been will tell you and a decent sized dancefloor as well. What’s not to like?
Accomodationwise there’s the Travelodge literally across the road and the Ramada which is a five minute walk away so no problems there. Make sure you book early as (a) it generally works out cheaper (b) they fill up quite quickly. Either way you won’t need a taxi as they’re both easy walking distance.
So there you have it. Put that one in your diary as it is definitely a night not to miss. You’re guaranteed of an excellent night out, fresh tunes to lift you up onto the floor, a friendly vibe and you’ll see why people keep coming back. We’ll see you in November.
£4 OTD. Smart dress preferred.
