Asbury Park 45 Sessions Recap

The last Asbury Park 45 Sessions of the year 2008 has come and gone. This session was a really great night. With close to about 100 in, all the DJ’s and Guest Selector Cool Hands Luke did a fantastic job. I’d say it was the best set I’ve ever seen him do. The 45 Killer played some HEAVY, HEAVY drums. M.Fasis layed down some sweet foundations to today’s Hip Hop, while Bluewater showcased his old and new Funk and Soul crates. Prime Mundo surprised the crowd with a sweet Big Daddy Kane sampled 45, and I threw down a nice little Deep Funk and Raw Soul set. We missed Larry Grogan and Jack the Ripper who were out of commission, but should be back in the saddle for the next one. In total, we saw a lot of old faces, but most certainly a huge amount of new faces, eager to check out some music that you wouldn’t normally hear on the radio, let alone in a bar on 45 rpm. The next 45 Sessions are in February 2009, which will be our two year anniversary. I’m trying to put together something really special for this one, so stay tuned. Thank You to all Guest DJs, Residents, and fans who have come through. Keep Diggin’!
