Well that was a bit good!!! All over far too quickly but must say a massive thank you to Dave, Donna, Mick & Nettie for providing such a cracking Weekender...Personally didn't stray to far for from the  "VAULT" all weekend but from what I did see the whole event was enthusiastically enjoyed by everyone....
Chuffed to again start things off in the Vault on Saturday night. Terry Wrights "Boston Connection" Rupe suggested we double deck our spots so would like to thank Rupe for suggesting it as i think we went down's what I played in no particular order and without Rupe's choices but hopefully he'll put them up later: 

Double Decking with Rupe 9-1030pm

Voices Of East Harlem - Take a Stand
The Tom - Emmanuel And Ron Experience - When You Lose Your Groove
Mixed Emotions - Gold Of My Life
Brothers Of Soul - Dream
Le Frank O - Keep on Getting Down
J Jock O - I'm Gettin' Over
Las Vegas Connection - Running Back To You
Nate Calhoun - Funktown
Cold Blood - I'm A Good Woman
Bobby Valentine - BB
Black Sugar - Too Late
Archie Bell & The Drells - Thousand Wonders
Lorraine Rudolph - Keep Coming Back For More
Sonny Til - I Gave it All Up
Little Charles & The Sidewinders - Talkin' About You, Babe

Have been going to Skeggy since Year 2 giving the move to the Central a miss. Since Skeggy has been back in it's rightful home it has struggled to capture its unique vibe. Always a friendly, soulful gig, I'm sad to say its all but lost its magic. Friday night was authentic, Saturday ok. but the afternoons, were shockingly poor, save for Soul Sam (last hour Sunday). My loyalty to this weekender will likely continue as it holds so many fantastic memories of friends past and present. Bring back the Skeggy DJ stalwarts.
