I hope the beginning of the week finds you all well?
Despite the absolutely horrendous weather, which had a “Cats and Dogs” styled theme to it all weekend, we managed to make it out to Dantes Reunion on Saturday night. The evening was first class, with some quality Soul being played by all concerned. I was also pleased to finally pin down Keith Barnes, a serious Northern Soul and Motown completionist, for our forthcoming Hook & Sling Soul Weekender in February, a very welcome addition to the line-up!
This coming Saturday 5th December sees us hit up The Vestry in Chichester, West Sussex for the return of our monthly funk and soul night. We’ll be dropping the usual all 45rpm goodness on the turntables for your listening, and hopefully dancing pleasure. So if you’re in the vicinity drop by and join us!
So, we continue with our Sisters With Soul Mix Series, and after Part One from my funky co-pilot, Hoppin’ John, which can be found HERE, it’s time for Part Two!!
Joining us today is regular contributor and Hook & Sling compadre, The Popcorn King. The regulars amongst you will know just how deep his crates run, and IMHO he more than does justice to the task in hand today.
So strap yourself in for Part Two, stay safe and I’ll be back here shortly with the final instalment !
