DJ / Quizmaster

Last Saturday (21st) I went to see my friends Stax of Soul at the Willows Variety Center in Salford for their last ever gig as they have now split up after a million years playing great soul together,

The first time I worked with ‘Stax’ was at St Herbert’s Parish Centre in Chadderton about 1989 and we worked with each other at loads of places like weddings, birthdays, corporate functions and best of all the legendary Pembroke Halls in Walkden, we even played in a massive barn for a couple of years (the generater kept breaking down). I had a great 10 years working with them until I became ill in 2000 and had to stop.

I with my friend and fellow DJ Steve Sale, his girlfriend Pam and my friend Nicky and met up with a few of other friends, DJ’s and musicians also David & Gill Heyes who used to run the Pembroke Halls. (now run the Garsdale Country House in Bury which is one of my regular quiz night pubs)

I’m sorry about some of the photos being a bit blurred, I’d had a few drinks !!!!!

  1. Hi Mike,

    I’m sure you probably already know, but just in case…..

    Do you know that Stuart, Don & Darren are now playing along with myself (Pete – bass player) as a 4 piece soul band called SoulAmigos?

    We can be found on http://www.soulamigos.co.uk, http://www.facebook.com/soulamigos and http://www.twitter.com/soulamigos

    Cheers,
    Pete.
