The Night Owl

Retro-themed, rambunctious and brimming over with beats from the 60s, 70s and 80s, The Night Owl has big love for for all things Northern Soul. Take yourself back to the good old days of flared trousers and vinyl records, where the melodic sounds of Motown, Funk and Soul mixes are brought back to life. All vintage dance moves welcome.
