Regular Beccles DJ and soul lover, Garry Emms, said: “Looking forward to returning on the 1st April to Beccles Public Hall”.

“Come and do your thing at the Hall on the 1st – it’s one big happy family and everyone is welcome”! said Sue Bergin, BPH.

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 & The Imperials and Jackie Wilson.

“Beccles Public Hall is pleased to announce 3 dates for this year for their popular ‘Move On Up’ Soul Nights,  the first one very soon Saturday 1st April, then Saturday 22nd July and finally Saturday 16th September, hosted by DJs Garry Emms presenter ‘Pure Rhythm Radio’ & Steve Kay ‘ DJ & East Anglian promoter’, plus guests and a special treat on the September date in the form of Heavy Sol – a much admired mod band playing the sounds of The Small Faces, Who etc., each will be an evening of Northern Soul & Tamla Motown classics and more on vinyl.

Garry first played the soul sounds at the age of 15 in youth clubs at Ipswich, having access to the imported records from the American bases nearby and has been collecting and playing since ( apart from a few years break to pursue business interests, whilst Steve has been playing the music and promoting since 1979, so come along and enjoy the great music, have a drink and have a dance in great surroundings with great bar, personnel and dance floor” said James Aggett, Gen Manager.
