Sutton Sound Clash: Northern Soul Night
Sutton Coldfield Town Hall is launching a new Northern Soul event in February, inspired by a musician’s visit to the iconic venue.
Local musician Rob Briggs was impressed by the two large sprung dancefloors at the Edwardian venue, and felt the classic ballroom look of the Town Hall would be an ideal location for a Northern Soul Sound Clash event, where two styles of music are played.
For the first event on Sunday 10th February, seven piece Ska band The Interpreters will alternate sets with Northern Soul and Motown DJ Sean Taylor. It’s ideal for anyone interested in Northern Soul, Motown, original Ska or the 2 Tone revival that followed.
Sean will be dipping into his extensive collection of dance floor fillers, taking Sutton back to the days of Wigan Casino, the Twisted Wheel and Blackpool Mecca.
Local ska band The Interpreters will feature guest keyboard player Danny McCormack of Roy Wood’s band, plus Duane Eddy’s saxophonist Paul Corry and Al Beat of The International Beat on percussion. They will play an infectious, foot stomping set of ska classics, from Toots and the Maytals to The Specials.
