Guest DJs: Andrea Butcher and Richard Corbyn (The State We’re In)
We’re very pleased to have Andrea and Richard from one of our favourite London clubs, Camden’s superb The State We’re In, as our guest DJs this month. They play northern soul, Motown, 60s girl groups, R&B, and “the very best of dancing soul”. Perfect.
A few minutes walk from Oxford Circus tube station, The Phoenix is a wonderful basement bar that’s hosted soul and indie nights for the last 30 years. It has a lovely wooden dancefloor, a great sound system, and a bar serving pints at pub prices

“This monthly club night celebrates the sounds of the Sixties, playing a variety of music genres including soul, Motown and pop, all on vinyl. Some dress in vintage to match the theme, but everyone is there for the music. The homely basement makes this event feel like an authentic 60s night out. You have to be serious about your Sixties and register as a member to get in.” - High Life magazine
