King Bee Rhythm And Blues Club on
This event is now over
Well it's time to announce next months guest DJ, I've had a number of people PM me asking if we can get him on-board, and the answer is yes we can.
I first came across him spinning tunes at The Pelican R’n’B club in Loughborough in the early 80s. I used to sleep in my mini in the car park if i couldn't talk some good soul into letting me crash at theirs.
He then DJ'd on the Mod scene up and down the country throughout 80s & 90s, along with Northern Soul nights at the Holy Cross Leicester. He had residency at a Club/Restaurant in Loughborough where he played Jazz to the diners, which helped pay his way through university.
Recently he's done spots for the Buzz (reunited with Rob Glover from the Pelican R’n’B days), Brighton Beach and Chitlin Circuit.
He made a few of us very jealous when given the task of sorting through (500 i think) King and Federal releases, nice work if you can get it!
I'm sure as always you fellow King Bees will give a warm welcome to the one and only Martin Derby.
