Back by popular demand, super cool soul DJs Garry Emms, Steve Kay and guest DJ Kev Coulston will be returning to Beccles Public Hall for a high energy night dancing to northern soul and Motown music.
The Move On Up Soul Night is back at the hall on Saturday night from 8pm until midnight, with doors opening at 7.30pm.
“Come and do your thing at the hall – it’s one big happy family and everyone is welcome!” said Sue Bergin, events coordinator.
Featuring spins, flips, and backdrops, the northern soul dancing style was inspired by the stage performances of visiting American soul acts such as Little Anthony and The Imperials and Jackie Wilson.
The Motown label produced over 525 albums and gave birth to some of America’s most iconic performers – The Temptations, Diana Ross and The Supremes, Smokey Robinson and The Miracles, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, The Jackson 5, Martha and The Vandellas, the Commodores, Lionel Richie, and many other artists.
