CRAZY 4 SOUL presents the 3rd ANNIVERSARY OF THE EXETER NORTHERN SOUL ALLDAYER
After the resounding success of last years Exeter Alldayer Wayne Sibthorpe’s ‘CRAZY 4 SOUL’ brings you another adrenaline packed day of THE VERY BEST IN Northern Soul & Motown music. The music will be played by some of the best DJs in the South West and UK including the legendary Chris King, Pep and Ginger Taylor of Wigan Casino and Kings Hall fame. Presently the underground scene of Northern Soul is increasing in its popularity throughout the country with a younger generation of people forcing a new wave of interest into the rare soul scene and the older generation revisiting their youth and keeping the flame burning!
Again this event will be staged in the excellent venue of the Exeter Corn Exchange which has a second to none large wooden dance floor, a modern bar/chill out area and there will also be some stalls selling merchandise and records. You will witness a fantastic and exciting day & night (11 hours again this year !) of the very best sounds from the 60s and 70s played on ORIGINAL VINYL ONLY with great dancing. This is a not to be missed event and will suit both old and younger people alike.
Northern soul is a music and dance movement that emerged independently in Northern England, the English Midlands, Scotland and Wales in the late 1960s from the British mod scene. Northern soul mainly consists of a particular style of black American soul music based on the heavy beat and fast tempo of the mid-1960s Tamla Motown sound.
Northern soul is associated with particular dance styles and fashions that grew out of the underground rhythm & soul scene of the late 1960s at venues such as the Twisted Wheel in Manchester. This scene and the associated dances and fashions quickly spread to other UK dancehalls and nightclubs like the Chateau Impney (Droitwich)tacombs (Wolverhampton), the Highland Rooms at Blackpool Mecca, Golden Torch (Stoke-on Trent) and Wigan Casinoe more uptempo and frantic, by the early 1970s, northern soul dancing became more athletic, somewhat resembling the later dance styles of disco and break dancing. Featuring spins, flips, karate kicks and backdrops, club dancing styles were often inspired by the stage performances of touring American soul acts such as Little Anthony & The Imperials and Jackie Wilson.
