The Hook & Sling Presents Back To The Daily Grind

Welcome back!

Well the dust has finally settled from Christmas and New Years Eve and it's back to some form of semi normality round these parts.

First up, a big thank you to Ed Meme for joining us at The Vestry for our Christmas Eve Funk Special. He laid down some funky treats for a packed dance floor and is, as always, welcome back anytime! Huge thanks to Lewis & Ben for making the night go smoothly and also to everyone who joined us for what was a great night.

We're back at The Vestry on Saturday 8th January 2011 for our first outing of the year, so be sure to head down and join us if you happen to be in the area.

So onto business and I return here with a special Hook & Sling joint mix for you. After the excesses of Christmas both myself and Hoppin' John managed to get together and put some time aside to bring you a long overdue joint mix. At just a shade under 40 minutes, this is a nice rounded bag of Funk and Soul with a few curve balls thrown into the mix for good measure.

Hopefully this will be just the tonic to ease you bck into normality! Stay safe, enjoy today's mix and I'll be back shortly with more of the good stuff.
