Northern Soul Night to celebrate first birthday

Friday, 09 November 2012 From Issue Vol. XX No. 45 By  Eva Johnson

Pattaya Soul Club will be holding its First Birthday Party on Saturday 24th November 2012. These events have become extremely popular in Pattaya during the past year, and plans are in place to make this party that extra bit special!

The party will see an extra half hour of free-flow plus a goodie bag for everyone (thanks to the sponsors) as well as more of your favorite northern soul tunes with a “hint” of Motown. Soul fans from Bangkok are expected to once again make the trip down to Pattaya.

Over the past year, Pattaya’s Soul Club has supported local charities, raising a total of 240,000 baht. These charities are:

* Mercy Center 45,000

* Melissa Cosgrove Children’s Foundation 75,000

* Hand to Hand Foundation 120,000

All of these charities have benefited in order to help “at risk” children from the slums, construction workers’ children and those who have been abandoned.

The club’s previous event (August 25 this year) was another huge success. The events are becoming ever more popular due to the style of the music as it is something completely different from anything else you hear in Pattaya, mostly music from the 60s and 70s that is played throughout the world.

For those that don’t know about “Northern Soul”, it is an up tempo beat similar to the sounds of Tamla Motown and that era. Northern Soul in the UK has a massive following with events happening on a weekly basis in nearly every city. Websites have sprung up all over the world showing classic artists and of course the famous Northern Soul dancing.

Date: Saturday 24th November 2012 (doors open and free flow starts at 7.30pm).

Venue: Boomerang at the Wombat Bar in Soi Arunothai, Central Pattaya (soi opposite Big C Extra).

400 baht entry fee (all proceeds going to Hand to Hand Foundation).

Free flow beer, cider, red & white wine and all soft drinks from 7.30pm ‘til 10pm (as long as stocks last) after that the bar prices at Boomerang are very reasonable.

Pattaya Soul Club would like to thank their wonderful sponsors, without whom the event would not be possible. Many thanks and appreciation to the following: Coco’s Bistro (Jomtien), Defence International Security Services, 121 International, Wombat Bar, San Miguel Beer, Thatcher’s Cider, Craig Muldoon, CES, K2M Project Solutions, The Sutlet Group, Inspire e-Magazine and Twister Shots.

So if you’re looking for a great night with great people and great music, then look no further! The first birthday is going to be special.

All proceeds from the night will be donated to the Hand to Hand Foundation.All proceeds from the night will be donated to the Hand to Hand Foundation.
