START! the modernist culture

 

This is a specialist MOD NIGHT that is designed to be held on a 4-8 week basis in Bedfordshire. Northern Soul and Mod-Beat music with retro lighting...

 

Since it's debut (which was originally called MOD REVIVAL), this night has become increasingly popular. Created and devised by the theme DJ, DJ Quinny and created from the core Mobile Disco business of GE-LUXE Mobile Sounds, this has been so far a great success.
Based in Dunstable in the fine surroundings of a modest Café Bar called, The Four Kings Bar & Café in High Street South, Dunstable, this 'Soul Town' really has welcomed this much needed Mod themed music evening.
Held only on Saturday Nights, these MOD nights have been an exciting venture since April 30th 2011 and as a result of the passion and crowds, will continue from 2012 and beyond.


Originally set-up as a 'feeler' to see if the MOD and Northern Soul community would enjoy this bespoke evening of great soul music, it has grown and therefore has re-branded as START!
So as not to be 'patronising' towards the MOD community, this has now been re-created to exist as more of an underground and finely tuned evening.
START! will not be as commercial as it was previously and will be host to great 60's retro lighting and music from the following genres:

- NORTHERN SOUL
- 60's POP
- MOD R & B
- MOD JAZZ
- BRIT-BEAT
- FREAK-BEAT
- 2-TONE SKA
- MOD 60's BRIT BEAT BAND
- MOD CLASSIC BANDS FROM 60's TO 80's
- MOTOWN CLASSICS

This is a night full of great tunes for the nostalgic MOD from the original cultural beginnings to the young 'N' hip new-age modernists who savour the culture and sounds of this renaissance of style, culture and music today.
Scoots, suits and Desert boots...
MODS & MODETTES from all over Herts, Beds and Bucks are welcome.
Scooter Clubs are more than welcome...
The MODS will never die, KEEP THE FAITH.....this is only the START!

  • Yes Stephen, true....Dunstable with the California Ballroom years ago was the soul capital. I've had three nights at The Four Kings since April which were entitled: MOD REVIVAL which brought much attention. I've rebranded it and START! debuts Feb next year...more Brit-Beat and rare 60's.

    Heatwave and Locomotion are keeping the Luton MOD SCENE buzzing too with events looming soon.

    Proper music scene breaking through again....!!!! 

    I will Facebook event invite you when the time comes...

    Quinny.

  • As you'll know Quinny, Leighton Buzzard was a bit of a mecca for Northern Soul in the south so it's great to see something of a soul night back in the vicinity - hope to get along there.
