GROOVY Happening is going back to the 70s as it hosts an extra event to raise money for equipment.

The Parkside Social Club in Haworth, the regular Groovy venue, will have a themed 70s night upstairs on November 16.

Spokesman Sue Burke said: “Much of the success of Groovy is down to our awesome sound man Luke Parker and DJ Phil Hobson. This event is largely to support them and enable them to carry on doing such a brilliant job.

“We will raise money for equipment to continue to give Groovy audience the excellent experience they deserve.”

Luke Parker performs as drummer or lead vocalist in local bands Foxes Faux, Lord Ryan And The Tops and The Box Jellys.

Sue said: “Luke brings this wealth of experience to produce an amazing sound at Groovy and we owe it to the talented musicians who play there, giving generously of their time and talent to play free of charge in order to raise money for the Manorlands hospice.

“The live music we have at Groovy is greatly enhanced by Phil’s disco and I know he has spent a lot of time to produce a fantastic play list for the 70s night.

“Phil has hardly missed a Groovy in eight years and he still finds time to cook his legendary daal curry to feed the performers and guests.”

The 70s night will feature two live acts along with Phil 70s disco, a music quiz, 70s-style buffet and themed prizes. Fancy dress is recommended.

Go Your Own Way, fronted by Stevie nicks sound alike, Angela Naylor, will play their tribute to the music and artistry of Fleetwood Mac.

The Sunday Club, who made their live debut last August at Groovy, are four talented and experienced musicians: vocalist Eddie McLaughlin, guitarist Paul Wilkinson, bassist Andy Milne and drummer Tony Riley, playing 70s classics.

Admission to the 70s night, at the Parkside Social Club in Butt Lane, will be £5.
