I’m honored to be included in the Missing Link soul nights. Featuring a bevy of thoughtful soul DJs (Mantease, Adam & Matt, Jay Morg) the night has been a grand success.
On saturday 11/26 I took the stage to play an all-45 set to an appreciative crowd of about 200 people at that point. Here is a rundown of the tunes:
1. J.R. Bailey – we need love
2. Eddie Bo – hook and sling 1
3. Ripple – funky song
4. Bobby Freeman – four piece funky nitty gritty junky band
6. Gladys Knight & the Pips – Nitty gritty
7. David Robinson – I’m a carpenter
8. Jamo Thomas – Arrest me
9. Shadows of Knight – Shake
10. David Batiste – Soul p2
11. Gaturs – cold bear
12. Aretha Franklin – this is the house that jack built
13. Calvin Arnold – I better rest
14. Voices of East Harlem – sit down
The next Missing Link soul party is December 15 at Humbrews. You can also catch King Maxwell on December 11th at the Blue Lake Roller rink for EIGHTIES SKATE! And I’ll be playing 45 of the best funk and soul 45s at the Alibi on December 17.
