On Saturday the 29th of June I will be DJing at the UK`s longest running Soul and Jazz Funk night outside of London. Blackburns King George`s Hall which is in it`s 19th year ( I know because I went to the very first one), has 3 rooms covering Northern Soul and Motown, 80s - 2013 Modern Soul and Jazz Funk and club classics. I will be joing Mark Grice and Ian G in the Jazz Funk room. Mark and I go back a long way and he was one of the first people to appreciate nujazz etc. So I am please to be offered a spot by organiser and soul legend Richard Searling to play a Fro-Disia set of nujazz, funky grooves at one of the biggest venue in the UK.
Sunday the 21st of July - `Summer In The Park` All Dayer.
The 3rd time around for this grat event on the soul calander. Once again the fantastic Dunkenhalgh Hotel, Clayton-le-Moors, Blackburn is the setting for a 3 room event of classic Northern, Connoisseurs Soul and Soulful House, Jazz and Weekend Anthems. In addition the hotel`s courtyard provides a cool summer bar-b-que atmospere with blissful music.
A big hit of jazz/nujazz n funky suff supplied by my good self in the Townley Suite. Always a great day is this with music all day and night. Take my advice book a room and take it all in. Great venue and glad to be involved.
So a busy summer of cool music followed by a Freestylin in August and a home town soul re-union bash in September.
