6Ts @ The 100 Club: 12 April 2003
DJs: Mick Smith, Butch and Ady Croasdell plus guests Kenny Burrell and Keith Money.
Another sound night with the DJs particularly excelling. Kenny played his male version of Sweet Temptation (very different to Martha Starr) and gave airings to a lot of sounds we dont get to hear enough of.
Keith shone with a great deal of thought going into his set, changing the moods and tempos at just the appropriate times, he more than justified his recent signing for the 6Ts Cleethorpes weekender.
Mick enjoyed himself far too much (stitching Ady up over the mike several times), he let the rare boys have their moments and pleased the crowd with whatever it took throughout.
Butch was on top form and opened his second set with a girly acetate that sounded like the Sapphires at their best.
Ady, in his own words, had his moments and was particularly pleased with the first outing of The Themes "Do Yourself A Favour" and the crowds response to The Devonnes "Doin The Gettin Up".
There were great turn outs from the West Midlands, Nottingham and even the Bar Italia Scooter Club - but we dont seem to get the far flung Northerners any more, theyre either getting old or too lazy . (Ady's comments.... Not mine!)
