King George's Hall DJ's Night

featuring Ian G and Mark Grice

Saturday 24th November 2018 8:30pm

It's great to once again host our friends Ian Gillibrand and Mark Grice for the King Georges Hall Jazz/Funk Room Revival Night.


For over twenty very special years starting with an idea from Richard Searling and Ian Gillibrand to create a one room Jazz/Funk event featuring Colin Curtis, Richard and Ian. The night soon joined forces with the already established Northern Soul room to create a hugely popular two roomed event. Later Mark Grice came on board to replace Richard who had become fully occupied running the Northern room.


Over the years there were guest DJ's such as the Southport Weekenders Alex Lowes, the Designer Wayne Hemmingway plus bands such as Swing Out Sister all held together by the regular team of Colin, Ian and Mark. The nights sold out weeks in advance and were so popular as to become plagued by ticket touts warranting reports in the local press! A few years later a third room was added and the night went from strength to strength.


We must give special thanks to Ian and Mark for these opportunities to relive some of those magical years and we know from past gigs we'll in for an upbeat Saturday night of fabulous danceable music.
