Looking at the guests, it's a veritable breath of fresh air and an opportunity to catch some of the finest and 'exclusive' to Dekka's Roots Room. Judging by the interest to date looks like it's going to a busy one ....So it's Pete Lyster, all the way up from deepest Somerset with a reputation and record collection which more than matches the finest cider from those parts. This guys' exceptional behind the decks and not to be missed ....if in doubt, just read past reviews of this guest spots - including 'Soul in the Park', Brighouse Ritz , Soulvation's Newquay Weekenders and Weston super Mare Pier allniters, his own Bridgewater Soul Club etc. There's the mighty Chris 'Bearsoul' Morgan from his highly acclaimed club 'A Taste of Honey', Manchester plus his recent jet setting forays behind the decks in Amsterdam, Chicago and Mexico ! There's always something rather special in a 'Bearsoul' set, not least a few tasty morsels of Ska, an unreleased acetate or two ..For those from the North East, Sean Tasker needs no introduction as he has an envious 'hot box' of the 6ts dance floor rarities and another in demand DJ. 'Grant' Rankin from Stockport and Pure fm Radio comes with deserved and glowing recommendations - just check out those playlists.'Big Bad' Eddie Wainwright is a must hear with his mod/6ts/scooterist gems, a local lad and resident at one of Leeds foremost 6ts/ RnB clubs 'Empty Bottles'. With his commitments behind the decks at National Scooter Rally's he's a hard man to nail down so a rare opportunity to catch him & making his debut in Dekka's Roots Room. Joining Eddie is his fellow resident at Empty Bottles Gary Brown. Gary has played the Roots Room before when he absolutely brought the house down with his own unique style befitting such a respected DJ from one of the foremost clubs in the land ‘Empty Bottles’Finally it's showcase time ... featuring Russ and Ray from the Caliente Soul Club (Peterborough) . Both of whom are guaranteed to keep the bar high with some absolute gems - hence as with all the guests they are invited on merit to deliver the 'no compromise' music which epitomises 'Dekka's Roots Room'.So there you have it, fantastic DJ’s playing great mod/British Beat/Ska/Rare 6ts/Soul/ popcorn/Funk/ Boogaloo on ovo.If it's not your normally your thing - give it a listen/dance - you can always then retreat to the other two excellent rooms for northern oldies and modern/7ts . All in all destined for another great afternoon and evening at The Manhattan, Harrogate with Charity Soul UK raising funds for Professor Maitland and his team.Atbdekka
