45 Sessions Recap 11.23.07

I am not an animal…..Devil Dick laying down heat

Just a quick recap from last night, as another Asbury Park 45 Session is in the history books. All in all the night went well, except for a few power surges caused by the throngs of Jack the Ripper groupies who were dancing so hard on the stage to knock out turntable one periodically. Apologies to those who were listening live for the mishap, but for those of you who are musicians/ DJs, you know the perils of a live show. The photo above is Devil Dick in all his glory, spinning some unbelievable fuzzed out Funk. I will post all the play lists as they come in. I’m off to straighten out some 45s that desperately need to be boxed. Big Ups to Bob Shannon, Funky16, Connie T. Empress, DJ Prime, Vincent the Soul Chef, M.Fasis, and of course DJ Bluewater (who sold yet another box of heat) for hanging and making the night a success. The next Session will be sometime in January, with a Guest Selector TBA. Lots of new faces this time which leads me to believe the word is spreading, and people are getting hip to some real music.
