This Sunday, 15th July, the Northern Quarter’s newly refurbished Cord Bar will play host to a Mod and Northern Soul alldayer to celebrate their official relaunch.
The bar, on Dorsey Street, Northern Quarter, has just undergone an extensive revamp and is the venue for a Mod alldayer organised by promoters, The Rock & Roll Lounge. There will be several DJs playing on the day including successful TV chef and full-time Northern Soul aficionado Stacie Stewart who is the jewel in the crown of Cord Bar’s re-opening celebrations. Throughout the day the DJs will be playing Mod, R’n’B, Ska, Britpop, Freakbeat and plenty of Northern Soul from 2pm until late and admission is FREE.
“The Mod scene is as strong as ever in Manchester and has now moved onto social network sites such as Twitter”, said Jim McGuinn, one of the organisers. “We’ve made some great friends on Twitter and in fact, we’ve used Twitter to book the DJs, organise and promote this event.” Follow the Rock & Roll Lounge on Twitter for more news on the event: Rock & Roll Lounge www.twitter.com/rocknrolllounge
