Soul Buggin' presents Colin Curtis, Joe Buhdha, Daddio
plus residents Wrighty, Beane and Mark A
Bank Holiday Sunday 30th May 4pm-2am
Moog, Newdigate Street
Blimey it's another Bank Holiday and after the brilliance of the Buggin Boogaloo event at Easter we knew we'd have to pull out all the stops for this one. To this end we've gone and invited our strongest line up yet.
What to say about the legend that is Colin? He has been at the forefront of soulful music for over 40 years and was one of the major players in the Northern Soul scene, the Jazz Dance scene and also the Soulful House scene. He's been resident at Blackpool Mecca, Golden Torch, Rafters, Berlin, Legends & Rock City. Regularly cited as 'The DJs DJ' he has influenced many major players in the scene.
Greg Wilson - "Best jazz DJ on earth''
Bill Brewster - "Colin Curtis is one of the greats of British DJing"
Blues and Soul - "A DJing great"
Ashley Beedle - "Colin Curtis, the man as far as I'm concerned".
Well after last Septembers brilliant Birthday session we just had to have the man back and this time he's gonna be playing two sets, a connoisseur soul and jazz dance one earlier on, and an upfront soul and house one at peak time.
Nottingham producer and DJ Joe is going to be playing an Old Skool Rock City set harking back to Colins legendary sets at the Nottingham behemoth. Joe is best known as a hip hop producer who has worked with some of the biggest names including Chali 2Na, Akil, Rodney P, El Fudge, Klasnekoff, Talib Kwele, Estelle & John Legend.
Local legend Daddio makes a welcome return behind the decks at Soul Buggin'. He can be seen regularly at Nottingham's Jazz Dance session Out To Lunch, both on the dancefloor and behind the decks and ran his superb night Roadblock, where he played a high quality mix from funk to soul to boogie.
Helping out the esteemed guests will be those Soul Buggin' residents Beane, Mark A & Wrighty.
We kick off at 4 in the afternoon with Moog supplying their quality roast dinners until about 6, or until they run out which may be sooner, and kids are welcome to join us until 7. Entry is free until 9p.m. and then it's the bargain price of £2.
Join the Paaarty !!!
