The Bands Table
What a fantastic day it was for the lovely couple Jill & Ken who put together a perfect day with a lot of hard work thrown in. The day started early at 2.30pm with Speeches and Canapes followed by the soulful voice of James Mottershead singing Motown and Drifters classics. Then there was a Dance workshop teaching the art of Northern soul dancing for those who needed to brush up on the old six by six etc. The Misley Brothers ( Graham and Tony) were next on the agenda doing a large set of Stax and classic soul songs. Next up was top DJ’s Ken’s very own son and TwoTone Tony, this was topped with the main act The Casino Allstars who performed two great sets to bring to an end The wedding of all Weddings.
The Casino Allstars would like to thank Jill and Ken for requesting the band to play and join them on such an eventful day and wish you all the happiness in your future together.
A great crowd and a buzzing atmosphere witnessed The Casino Allstars put on a magnificent show for Lee at The Imperial in Stockport. Standing room only as the crowd packed the place out, but they still managed to dance in what small spaces they could find. It’s been a while since we were on home turf here at The Imperial where we rehearse every Wednesday or Thursday night. Lee the land lord has been such a good friend over the years and always bends over backwards to accommodate the bands need when asked. So it was extra special to fill the place for him and his lovely staff. We played out latest 3 new numbers, SLICED TOMATOES / JUST ANOTHER HEARTACH / IF YOU ASK BECAUSE I LOVE YOU for the first time in Stockport and they went down tremendous. Chris Stevens (Keys) has made such a big difference with his style of play enhancing the brass section with Keith (The Wizard). Then we have the ever so cool AC on bass guitar with Big Al (Lead Guitar) & Graham Lawrence (Drums) putting together a sound that make you wonder where the orchestra is hiding. Sarah was excellent with her vocals and yours truly sang from the heart which is the only way, all making The Casino Allstars the best Northern Soul band around.
