Ceroc Southport Weekender – My Top Ten Tracks

By | March 13th, 2018|Modern Jive DJs, My Favourite Tracks, Weekenders|

A Dance Music Feast I often describe a Ceroc Southport Weekender as a Dance Fest, but they are more than just that.  They is always a feast of the very best dance music.  Over the weekend there were twenty two DJs spinning the tracks in three rooms.  Each one had planned their sets with great care, to ensure [...]

Ceroc Southport Weekender – Mark O’Reilly’s set

By | March 9th, 2018|Modern Jive DJs, Weekenders|

I give myself a night off In the same way that I advise First-timers to take care not get all danced out at Southport, I have to pace myself too.  There is so much going off that I could spend all weekend gathering information on DJ sets, classes and aspects of the social side.  But [...]

Ceroc Southport Weekender – Tim Sant’s Motown & Soul set

By | March 7th, 2018|Modern Jive DJs, Motown, Weekenders|

There is a lot of love for Motown out there It's amazing really just how much love there is for Motown out on the Ceroc dance floor, especially when you realise most of the people packing Ceroc freestyles across the country weren't even born, when the likes of The Four Tops, Stevie Wonder, Edwin Starr and [...]

Ceroc Southport Weekender – Nicola di Folco set

By | March 5th, 2018|Weekenders|

You can't stay in the Thunderball Room all night Paul Are you sure?  But I love it.  My dance journey from Motown, by way of Funk and Disco was headed in one direction only - The Thunderball Room.  As Tony Riccardi concluded his fabulous set on Friday night there with Lionel Ritchie's Dancing on the ceiling I was in [...]

Ceroc Southport Weekender – Ceroc Heaven Angels at Play

By | March 3rd, 2018|Articles, Weekenders|

Ceroc's Southport Weekender is more than a Dance Fest The dancing at Southport starts at 3:00 pm on Friday afternoon and doesn't really stop until 6:30 Monday morning.  That's over sixty hours of dance time.  I doubt anyone does the full sixty hours, but I bet myself and my Dance Gang friends were on the dance floor, [...]

Ceroc Southport Weekender – Caroline Houlton Set

By | March 2nd, 2018|Freestyle Reviews, Modern Jive DJs, Weekenders|

I was born to dance in The Thunderball Room When the programme for any Ceroc Southport Weekender is published on line, the first thing I look for is the DJ slots over the three night time sessions.  I was born to dance in the Thunderball Room at Southport, and I doubt I'll ever experience a dance [...]

Ceroc Southport Weekender – Boudoir Music Taster

By | February 20th, 2018|Articles, Weekenders|

Paul, don't forget The Boudoir I guarantee you that, when it comes to picking my Top Ten Southport highlights the Thunderball Room is going to dominate.  There'll be references to the intense club like vibe on the floor, and try and stop me using the phrase 'The DJ set the floor on fire'.   There'll be plugs for [...]

By | December 6th, 2017|Guest Reviews, Weekenders|

Seems one of the best Weekenders passed me by I was in conversation with my friend Sue Astle when she told me she was off to the MJRoc Warmwell Weekender near Weymouth in Dorset. It's one of the best Paul.  I've been a regular for years and always book up for the following year as [...]
