Eddie Piller, co-founder of Acid Jazz Records, is to DJ at at a soul club at Brudenell Social Club next Saturday.
The London-born entrepreneur and broadcaster, whose label helped launch the careers of Jamiroquai, Brand New Heavies and the Young Disciples, joins a bill at the Hyde Park, Leeds venue that includes live music from the Samuel S Parkes Band.
Leeds-based musician Parkes said: “This is Brudenell Soul Club #2 after a successful first night in 2015 when we had Dave Evison who played the last record at Wigan Casino before it was closed forever.”
As well as Eddie Piller there will be sets from resident DJs Mike Eastwood, Big Sal and Josh Edge, The Chancellor.
Parkes added: “Our nights are based on a friendly atmosphere with no animosity towards newcomers to soul music, the only way this scene will survive for years to come is by keeping the young folk coming through.
“Dress sharp and dance to the music you love or the music you will discover you love.

“We play a steady diet of Northern Soul, Motown, R&B and a flavour of whatever our headline DJ brings to the table to keep you guessing.
“The nights are three times per year with some special Brudenell Soul Club presents... live shows in between.”
