Uptight - Frankfurt Weekender

Recommended Posts

NOTE: KAREN ON VOCALS AND MARIA ON KEYBOARD

It´s an interim report on what is turning out to be one of the most pleasant experiences I´ve had in a long time!

As you know, I don´t go to many allniters :thumbsup: . With a backdrop of excellent vinyl plays, I managed to find some interesting new friends to talk at. Both rooms well attended with dancers enjoying the wide mix of gendres. Special mention to Eduardo Domingo (Spain), Sean Livesey (UK), Gerhard (aka Mr Groove, Frankurt) and off course, Arthur - who all did it for me on the night. I expect DJs will put up playlists after the weekender is finished.

The mix of friends (old and new), weather and exceptional venue have made this a memory to cherish.

So thank you to all involved in making my daydreams real.

Karen Burke

ps. I might try another allniter sometime - I think I quite like them :thumbsup:

I can see the headline now ........"Karen posts on Soul Source shock horror" :thumbsup:

Wait till I tell Sidney Bridge

Mandy wants to know why did you have to go all the way to Frankfurt to find an internet connection ?

Glad you had a good time would loved to have been there (and Bamberg ) maybe next year

Have a good one tonight at the Gallery :thumbsup:

Cheers Paul

Hi Maria,

I'm so gutted I didn't go!. I heard from sean livesey earlier and the weekender has absolutely blown his mind!.. I believe the modern room was great last night and his sets went well, particularly his 1st set..

lucky buggers! lol.

I was well behaved Mr Forrest. It's a good job I was there because some of you German guys don't know when to stop. I had to look after everyone :P

> surprises me that you are already able to hit the buttons on your keyboard, Mr. E.

At least I was able to get out of a cab correctly Mr Pope Jean Paul II :wave::thumbsup:

I´ve uploaded some pictures from a very wonderful weekend to the photo section. It was absolutely fantastic on the modern floor, thanks to Sean, Terry, Andreas and Matthias- wow!

Wasn´t in the Northern room so much,just had to dance downstairs but what i heard from Arthur and Eduardo was very very good!

Frankfurt is always an absolute highlight, so many great and interesting people(Karen and Pete, Hannah, Paul, Terry, Christine- too many too mention now but you´re wonderful!, fabulous music, a venue to die for and very special and welcoming promoters- thank you so much!

And then of course, there´s Miles Eastwick- and i will say no more... whistling.gif
