Dance night with a difference to continue.
Sutton Coldfield Town Hall has teamed up with a local music enthusiast to create a new dance night for the Royal Town. Following a successful launch in February, the Sutton Coldfield Sound Clash nights, where Northern Soul is played in alternate sets with a different genre of music, has been booked in for the next two years at the heritage venue.
The Town Hall boasts one of the largest sprung dance floors in the Midlands, making it particularly suited to Northern Soul and dance events. The introduction of its new Sir Doug Ellis Bar, sponsored by the local benefactor shortly before his death last year, has energised the venue and created a better atmosphere for live music events.
Sutton Sound Clash creator Rob Briggs, who fronts local six-piece ska band The Interpreters (above), is looking forward to introducing new genres to the night, which will be held at least 4 times a year. “The next one, featuring the best of ska from The Interpreters and Northern Soul and Motown from DJ Sean Taylor will be held on the Bank Holiday weekend, Friday 24th May. As a contrast, eight piece indie band Marquis Drive from Cannock will headline their 90s Brit Pop Sound Clash on Friday 14th June, plus Northern Soul DJ Chris Louca.”
