Having spent several years DJ’ing on Soul 24/7 Radio & enjoying a lifelong relationship with music of the soulful kind, the whole concept of Summer Soulstice was basically born out of the mind of Giloboy & there’s no one else to blame but the man himself…


Barnet born & bred, when his great friend & old school buddy Andy Weekes passed away from cancer in 2006, Gilo felt it pertinent to celebrate the life of his late friend by pulling together family, friends & fellow soul music lovers & throw a big party in his back garden!

The garden idea was soon dumped when he (& wife Maggie) realised just how many people were going to come along & so the first Summer Soulstice headed for local rugby club Barnet Elizabethans at the end of Gilo’s road… And the rest, as they say, is history.

In 2017 Gilo made the very personal decision to take a step back from the organisation of the event, but insists he wouldn’t miss the day itself & will no doubt throw himself into helping out on the ‘field of dreams’ in June.

Still occasionally dropping a fine selection of tune-age sitting in for the likes of Grumpy Brown on Stomp Radio, Gilo has also been on the Ibiza Soul Week line-up & guested at other regular nights on the soul scene including Paul Clark‘s regular Brighton Beach PartiesBrews & Soul in Barnet, north London…


Gilo, our founding father, we salute you!
