North Carolina Soul Weekend & Rally

Last weekend was the annual NC Soul Weekender. My third year as a guest DJ here & was not disapointed.

Many thanks to Marco & Cowboy, shout out to Nate too.

Soul from every decade & genre appreciated by everyone.

Ill post a playlist from me for the two days asap, but Im using work pc right now as I have probs with home pc & my memory is shot.

Just wanted to thank all concerned for a very enjoyable weekend of top class choons.

russ -

had i known you were going, i wouldve had you let marco know to stop calling me at 4 am while he is driving home from gigs on the east coast. seems that the concept of daylight savings time just dont occur to them downhome southern types.

actually, im pretty fond of his 20 minute voice messages.

The weekend is run by the Incrimminators scooter club & is thier annual rally. Marco & Brian have nothing to do with the club particularly but are hired each year to provide the sound system & DJ's for the evening do's. DJ wise this year was quite low key but in the past there have been some extremely high profile DJ's appearing from all over the US. I have been fortunate enough to have been asked to do this for the last three years.

Im not sure if either Brian or Marco are members of this forum, if so they may want to comment, but this is just a small part of the promotions that they are involved with, both in NC & all over the US. They have a monthly soul night as well as lots of other funk n soul promotions which also cover a multitude of other music genres, some quite interesting but not all of interest to the soul nuts, all over the Raleigh, Duram, White Chapel triangle, big University so lots of potential punters too.

Any potential interest from the UK scene for this weekend would be most appreciated Im sure, but please do not expect a Prestatyn or Cleethorpes type weekender, its a fantastic weekend deffo, but not for everyone, so check it before you make the trip across the pond.

I will post up the link for Marco's website shortly & also my playlist too.

Cant wait to get back & see everyone Mandy, thank you for your kind comments, Jenny say's hi. The guys in the US are really great no misconceptions, distinct lack of politics, & they love to dance mostly to anything. I hope that I will be as well received back home now.

See you later this year for Bon Bons & gossip :ohmy: .
