Manchester Soul Clubs

Manchester Soul Club Venues;   The GENESIS of Northern Soul

By far the most influential of all the Manchester Soul clubs was the Twisted Wheel. The Blue Note was second. The Jigsaw was not fully dedicated to soul, Rowntrees was but only on Sunday lunchtime sessions. The Bolton Boneyard was amazing but did not last long 65/66 same for Roger Eagle’s Staxx Club with an extra ‘X’.
