Cheers Martyn,


Not a good night to Dj when your stuck between the big guns of the rare soul scene, but I think I survived somehow.

Hope everyone that was there enjoyed it, and for those who were not there wished they had been there.

Thanks again to the promoters for the invite to Dj. :thumbsup:

I think it was a good night for our box to playout with the big guns & pull a few little surprises out.....Tutti Hill stroke of genius,would have had me throwing myself about like the daft lad :D

It's about passion :wink:
