Greetings all…

Just a short recap of the festivities of night the last at the World Famous Asbury Lanes.
Things at the Asbury Park 45 Sessions were – once again – most excellent, with the always dynamic combination of hot wax, groovy people, tater tots and, of course, bowling balls.
Though a dire need for sleep caused me to bug out early (I volunteered to do the first set), I did catch sets by DJ Prestige and DJ Prime (both excellent), got to pal around with the other 45 Sessions regulars, and met Conn Shawnery of Canada’s Afrokats Records. I also managed to work some vinyl trades with your friend and mine DJ Bluewater. The results of said trade will of course be seen in this space in the not too distant future.
Though the sets haven’t been archived, I do happen to have on hand one of the smoking platters I dropped last night, a slice of New Orleans funk from guitarist/singer Deacon John Moore. The remainder of the set composed of a variety of hot funk, heavy soul and ending (as has been my tradition) with a slice of pure, danceable soul.
I hope you dig it, and as the set lists roll in, they will of course be posted.
If you’ll excuse, I’ll now return to vege-ma-tating my Saturday away.
