Supreme Detroit Soul Singer Willie Kendrick made his European debut at our marvellous Cleethorpes Northern & Rare Soul Weekender on the 9th June.

Joining Detroit soul legend Willie Kendrick on the bill was Just Brother Frank Bryant who played guitar and sang on 60s soul classics 'Carlena', 'Honey', 'Things Will Be Better' and the anthemic instrumental 'Sliced Tomatoes'. In addition the two singers reformed as the Just Brothers for the great 60s dancer 'Good Time' which they recorded together only to have Jomada records issue it incorrectly under the name Johnny Daye.

Mick Farrer and Steve Hobbs were added to the Modern Room DJ roster along with Neil Rushton to give the room a shot in the arm.

6TS Weekenders new co-management are “Soul Partners”, comprising of Phil Dick and Neil Rushton.
 
I chose those two veterans from an impressive short-list of volunteers because of Phil’s recent success with Detroit A Go Go and the many contacts he has made there, along with Neil’s decades of involvement and success with Northern Soul promotions and records, which began while I was still a dewy-eyed collector and dancer. They have worked together at Soulvation for several years now, as well as having their own separate promotions, and are particularly adept at organisation and promotion; two talents that I am tragically lacking in.
