For those who like it lively look no further than Bedford Place. A varbrant hub for bars and clubs sees Southampton’s three biggest venues joining forces to see the New Year in. From the funky Orange Rooms, to the cheeky bar of Pop, rounded off late night in ‘London’ style club Junk this is a great way to make the most out of NYE. Music ranges from the funky to the house and dance.

Time to dance the night away with the band who make every gig a party night! Those that have followed the band will know that the Rufus Stone Soul Band, based in their home town of Southampton, has been around in many guises since their start in late 1984. After all this time you would expect that some of the sparkle would have gone, not a bit. They still have the same distinctive sound, which ensures that they get the maximum involvement from their audience.
Over the years they have built a loyal following and it is this support that has kept the band not only on the road but still as soulful as when they started. The music is authentic soul with selections from The Blues Brothers and The Commitments, but the bulk of the set comes from the soul greats such as Otis Redding, James Brown, Wilson Pickett, Joe Tex and many others.
During their time together there have been a number of highlights that include support to some of the top soul artists like Jimmy Ruffin, Edwin Starr, Curtis Mayfield, Geno Washington, Ben E King, and Gloria Gaynor.
Tickets: £16 (advanced) £18 (door)
