We're very very pleased to announce that this Friday's guest DJ at Great Big Kiss is the brilliant northern soul DJ Andy Lewis. Andy was one of the founders of legendary Blow Up club night, and is also an acclaimed musician, currently playing bass for a certain Mr Paul Weller. Andy knows all there is to know about getting a dancefloor hopping and we've been dreaming about having him guest at GBK for ages and ages - to say we're excited about this Friday is something of an understatement! Woo-hoo! Bring it on!
Tickets are the usual price of £4 for members, £6 for non members, and £6 in advance. You can pick up a ticket here - http://www.wegottickets.com/event/234652
As always, I've been hunting for new vinyl gems to play at the club. My picks for this month are as follows:
* "Girls Are Getting Prettier" by Edwin Starr. A glorious dancer from the master.
* "It's Fantastic" by Smokey Robinson And The Miracles. An infectious beauty from the Motown vaults.

It was a great night, and at the end someone who came along for the first time said the nicest thing: "What a wonderful night. Everyone was on the same side."
