VOTED by The SOUL SURVIVOR MAGAZINE as
Top 3 best soul club outside London 2016.
Firmly established as The South East's premier and biggest event for over 30s Jazz, Funk and Soul music. Our nights sell out quickly and when you attend, youll know why. The ambience, the crowd, the music is all "High class" from the moment you arrive. If you havent been before, be prepared to be impressed, its 5 Star all the way !
Our guest DJ Sean French Sean first started Dj'ing at the age of 13, first tunes motown, early ska, soul etc. He got paid the sum of £10.00….which covered the gear £4.10 shillings and 6 pence [old]money…not bad at all in its day. He was also roadie for Tony Hall at this time, very early days of mobile discos, school by day, discos by night…not a bad life at all. He stayed with this until he was 16 then tapped his dad for £400.00 for his own disco unit which was called METRO MOBILE DISCOTEQUE
and he paid him back within 6 months and upgraded to a bigger setup within 2 years, 300watts rms, 3 decks, loads of lights…wot a show…he even had hair in those days !
At 19 Sean joined the pub/club circuit and stayed with this until he became a redcoat at Bognor Regis. He used to wake up the punters at 6.30am over the tannoy system…not the most popular redcoat around! Need he say more
So to be continued………At 5 Star Soul at The Goldmine Orsett Hall. You can speak to Sean and find out how the infamous DANTES on the south coast came about…The Alldayers, The Allnighters, the Gigs and MORE……………Seans knowledge of the jazz, funk and soul is legendary being a past Caister Soul Weekender DJ back in the day.
