60s and 70s Soul Party@The German Club

Hi all - May 11th's Soul night seemed to be so popular, that I thought.... why not do it again. This party will be all about Northern Soul (you tube it and you can see what kind of groove you will be dancing to), Motown and 60's / 70s soul.

The location is again at the German Club on Flinders Street, but this time it will be on the first floor - with a larger dance space and AIR CON!!! Six DJ's will be spinning some fat tracks and the bar will be fully stocked with some great drinks. I have also asked if they can play both classic and mainstream soul and groove music. So if you like grooving to the cool sounds of Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson or Ali Wilson then this is for you.

The fun starts at 8pm (happy hour from 8 to 9pm) so spend the night drinking and dancing to old school. There's a $5 cover charge at the door.

Again, depending on numbers if people want to eat beforehand I can arrange a table.... It should be a great night (and this time I will wear a green hat).

Hope to see you there - Mark

    Hi everyone - I will be putting some pictures up shortly. Please tag yourself in - thanks. However, I would like to respond to all the nice words that have been said about me and my hosting..... Firstly thank you for your kind words (a bit overwhelming), however the credit should not go to me - it should go to all of you. You are the ones that made the event friendly, open and easy. So everything that has been said about me, I feel reflects on all of you. It was an honour to be your English host....

    AWSUM AWSUM AWSUM!!!! Love your work Mark.. Fabulous host, wonderful warm friendly welcoming person and all round top bloke.. :o) .. Had a magnificent time Wasnt sure of the music but what the heck it eventually reached the souls of my feet & then the dance floor called .. Chatted with many new & not so new people as i wasn’t getting a fullon workout on the dance floor all night (for a bit of a change ..hehe!!) Many came up to chat which was lovely to see & hear new people making the most of the opportunity to reachout of comfort zones and use the welcoming environment of the group & the venue to get to meet & know a bit about as many members as the night allowed.. Fabulous!! .. Great to be introduced to a different style of dance.. Enjoyed watching those who knew this style of music & what they were doing on the dance floor float about to the music like they were gliding on ice Grooveey moves.. Totally enjoyed all & everything about the night Thanks so much Mark ..Your a legend.. :o)

    Completely different from what I expected. I was looking to interact with a number of ladies and to dance with them. I asked about 5 different ladies to dance and they seemed to be to shy or not ready to dance so after a while I decided to dance by myself and only 3 or four dances with two of the ladies. I have not danced by myself for a many years and I enjoyed the opportunity of dancing free of any restriction inherent in dancing with a partner, it was more a session of self-expression by physical use of my whole body, hands, feet, etc.
    One important factor against really interacting verbally with people in my view is that I don't have a low voice and I speak with a foreign accent, even I lived here for over 30 years, and we add the loudness of the music, which is good for dancing but too loud for talking and I opted for not trying to have conversations with people in which I have to shout and also find hard to understand what people are saying. So I danced by myself instead!

    Hi all - Points (5) - (6)

    (5) there is a $5 cover charge (for the hire of the hall etc). If you come at 7.30pm, I will be collecting the money there and giving it to the organiser when we all walk in (that should be a sight, 50+ people walking into a dance hall at the same time). If you come after 8pm please come to see me and give me the $5 cover or look for the 'cover charge box' which is next to the DJ's table. many thanks.

    (6) My apologies before hand - I cannot remember everyone's name and I may be darting here and there to make sure people are happy and enjoying themselves, so if I start dancing with people and then zoom to talk to someone, please don't be offended, I want all the enjoy soul and the meetup. However I will try this time to chat to people for longer periods of time and dance with many more

    That's all from me see you tonight. I will keep an eye on the postings so if you need to chat to me, post your message

    HI all - cont Points (3) - (4)

    (3) this is going to be a fun night with great music. The music will be soul and northern soul. Look up northern soul on youtube and you will see the type of sounds you will be hearing at this event. They will also play some classic soul as well as 'rare' hits.

    (4) for those who cannot make it at 7.30pm, the music starts at around 8pm on the first floor - large air-conditioned area. There is a bar on this floor too (happy hour until 9pm). Please introduce yourself to me (lad in the suit) so I can welcome you and introduce you to other members.

    Hi all - 54 people and counting are coming to this event. Its going to be a great night, full of fun and dancing. Dont be worried about the numbers. The following tips might help you really make this night awesome. Points (1) - (2)

    (1) please enjoy yourself - this is your change to get chatting and dancing. Lots of people will be new, some maybe shy - so you are not alone. We are all in the same boat. This is what makes meetups so good. There's no pressure - just smile and say 'hello'. You will be amazed at the response. (2) if you are new (even if you are not) introduce yourself to me (I will be in a suit) and I will introduce you to other members of the group (this should not be hard considering how many are coming). If you are in this category try and come to the bar at 7.30pm, that way you have a chance to chat to people before the music starts - making it easier for you to mingle before we head to the first floor for the dancing at 8.00pm.

    We've got a good number of people coming, many of whom are new or newish. Hope people can meet at 7.30 at the bar that way we can all meet before the dance. Otherwise we will be on the first floor where the music is at 8pm. I will be in a suit and maybe a green hat to make myself more easily identified. As some people don't have a picture on their profile please make yourself known to me so i can help you meet others in the group.
