Knavecoin with PoolKnave, PokerKnave, Slamspin and Gwapex are proud to sponsor Sammies 2nd Reunion Northern Soul Night in support of St Giles Youth Club. The event will take place at Gilberts Nightclub in Willenhall on the 26th September, 2014. Tickets can be brought in advance but they are available on the door. Please be aware that this will be a popular event and will probably be sold out.
St Giles Youth Club has long history and was once home for the band Slade. Things have not gone the clubs way for sometime but it is a much needed venue for the youths who live around that area so any monies raised they will be grateful for the donations. Well will be selling our rare records at the venue and donating 10% of all sales to the cause and we will be accepting Knavecoins and Bitcoins. The records will start at £1 or 1KNC or 0.0035BTC.
Knavecoin will be broadcasting the event live via pokerknave.imedialibrary.com for all those who cannot make it on the night or who live in places in which it would be impracticable to go because of distance. For those who are not familiar about the northern soul scene – it was a musical movement which started in the north of England and encapsulated the love of RnB, soul and Motown records of the 60’s and 70’s. Northern Soul was the forerunner of the house/rave scene and was totally dedicated to dancing all night long.
Recently northern soul has made a comeback with the sale of vinyl taking off as younger aficionados take up the mantle that their parents and even grand parents once held aloft.
Northern soul has influenced some major acts such as Mike Pickering, Pete Waterman, Soft Cell, Moloko, Plan B’s, Two Tone, Happy Mondays.
