05.23.08 Asbury Park 45 Sessions Recap

The sessions sneak up so quick even though they are bi monthly. This session fell upon a holiday, which is normally a dead night at the Lanes. However, we were all pleasantly surprised that the crowd consistently showed like they normally do. There were older couples dancing, young faux hawked guys wearing sunglasses at night doing some interpretive dance, a request for “No Parking on the Dancefloor” (seriously?), and lots of Summer Shandies drank. Don’t knock the 70 year old Scottish Grandma drink, we have Leinenkugel’s, and they’re not too shabby. The crew was slimmed down a bit this time, but it gave everyone the room to flex a bit and play some more records. We all played a great mix of Deep Funk, Soul, Reggae, and M.Fasis was even dropping a few Classic Rock nuggets. Good times we had by all, if you missed it, you have another chance to catch it in July. Here’s some photos along with my set list, other set lists as they come in.

  1. Yeah Leinies! I didn’t realise people actually drank it out here on the coast. I go to school in Wisconsin and I have a friend who has a scholarship from Leinenkugel’s
