Neil Gits Excited About Margate !

27th July 2015
Posted by Neil Matthew

I have been so, so busy with work since the summer holidays officialy started, I just didn’t get time to create a blog before Saturday’s repeat show as usual. But I just HAD to get on here today ahead of the weekly LIVE show to remind you that this coming weekend it is the Margate Soul Weekend, the South-East’s Biggest Soul Festival, where everybody who’s into soul music, not just in Essex & Kent (let alone Basildon and East Thurrock!) heads for Thanet for a three day celebration of the music and lifestyle we all love. And you can attend for free ! Just jump in the car, head for the coast and enjoy the daytime vibes at the various open air events – although that is just part of the experience and you really need one of the exclusive wristbands to experience the energy and passion inside the many clubs & bars across Margate with every DJ you’ve ever heard of (almost!) spinning their brand of the “good stuff”. Follow the links to see if there’s still time to get in and I will see you there – for now tune in at 7pm this evening (Monday) to hear at least four tracks by artists performing live at MSW this year and a whole lot more soul, jazz-funk & disco grooves from the 70s 80s & beyond.

More info on the event at  or on Facebook at and of course my own Facebook show page :


Have a listen and enjoy ! 🙂
