4th Anniversary of "Lets Dance the Rhythm n Blues. on
This event is now over
On the 30th August we will be celebrating 4 years of being down in the Basement of the Rumsey Wells.
In the last 4 years I've been joined by some great guest Dj's & together our aim has been to play for you the best we can find from the obscurities to the well known that is 50s/60s Rhythm'n'Blues.
But it all started off back on Friday 24th August 2010 & it was originally booked as a "Rat Pack & Swing" night,
were I Dj'd a mixture of big band, swing, jump blues & 50s r'n'b, from that it's developed into a night I now always look forward to
& that's thanks too all you lovely people that come along,
as it has become a well attended bi-monthly event that has a warm & energetic atmosphere, full of the R'n'B sounds from the 50s/60s.
My personal favourite tunes from the last 4 years are most probably:
LITTLE JOE summertime
HARVEY anyway you wanna
MARVIN GAYE sunny
ARETHA FRANKLIN my guy
MIKE PEDICAN burnt toast & black coffee
BUDDY ACE scream please
BARBIE GAYE my boy lollipop
the DRIFTERS drip drop
LAVERN BAKER jim dandy
SLIM SMITH my conversation
Please let me know what are yours
Then come on down and join us jump, jive, stroll, latin, northern, motown, ska, soul, jazz-beat, we may even throw in some exotica
but be assured it'll definately be a great selection of upbeat & downtempo tracks that you can listen &/or dance to.Note: this is now a stripped down post-event display
