Quick review on the night

1st big shout to Joker and Tonks for making it down from the board

We had a wicked night, I got a couple of hours on the decks, it was pretty full and had plenty Old Skoolers in there.

I played varied kinds of music, from classic old skool to pumpin nu skool, threw all sorts of stuff into the mix me and butty did

We well had em rockin!! RESULT

Butty played to his usual high standard, and I did OK too I suppose:p

This place is a like a large bar but with a club atmosphere, get down there, we had a right crack, and I hope to be on their again soon.

More peeps from the board tho please!!:D

'Going Back To My Roots': Courtneys, Manchester

After arriving at Courtneys at about 9 pm we entered the club which had a nice relaxed atmosphere (sorry peeps no glowsticks or vicks in here,just a great vibe and top tunes), the club itself is spacious and feels like you can go for a dance or just kick back with your mates and have a laugh.

The night itself is new only starting a few weeks back, but already the night is going from strength to strength.
Already boasting impressive DJ's that have played there including Rick Jones, Welly, Butty, Ste Huxley and Recca, these DJ's know their tunes and never fail to impress with their quality of old skool and mixing talent.

After attending several nights there I was suprised by the variation of club classics played(You'll never hear a tune played twice here folks), each set unique in its own way, they've got a winning combo in having all the DJs being friends so they can just jump in and have a back to back with each other or do individual sets, whatever takes their fancy.

I would highly reccomend this night because of its crowd atmosphere(you'll see what I mean if you take a visit) and solid gold tunes all night.

So if your in the Manchester area ...check it out...You won't be dissapointed.

'Going Back To My Roots' is on @ Courtneys, Manchester (behind Kendals) every Friday and Saturday night 8 pm till 1:30 am.

its fookin wicked m8.....no where in town is like it

last friday was absoutely rockin...the best night yet!
the place was paced from 9.30 until the end and although most peeps just used to go as an "inbetweeny pub" before going somewhere else....its now gettin to the stage where they either just come to courtneys or go sumwhere else first

trust me m8 if you're into yer tunes you'll feckin love it

plus happy hour till ten and more fittys than u can shake a shitty stick at

which is always good;) ;)

I was quite surprised with the size of the place - Its quite big inside int it - good venue. Definitely the highlight of my night out even tho it werent supposed to be as good as the Friday, still best pub in Manc by a long way. No problems gettin served, Beer was better priced.

Its one of them where ya walk in and think to yerself..."Ya! This is my sort of place" And you feel at home straight away
