A Night Of Wide Vibes
Fri 8 Nov
No Door - Bring Yr Smile

The scene is Anycity. The time is after dark. The day is the weekend, because any time after dark is, by default, the weekend. Work is over. The straight world has gone to bed, doors firmly bolted against the hustlers and the johns; the cops, the robbers and the mack daddies; the heads, the jazz cats and the beat freaks. This is the world into which we beckon you, brave listener.
Jay 'Fat Albert' Jeffrey, Bevan Keys, Richard 'AWDJ' Crafter and David 'Nyntee' Carroll delve deep to deliver the goodness. And the badness. Just the way you never knew you liked it. You'll hear tough jazz funk, syrupy sweet soul, Latin flavoured floor fillers, left-footed house, car chase music, cosmic lazer disco and plenty more besides.
This is how we get wide - with an open mind.
Had a bunch of fun playing at 'Mixed Messages' alongside Nigel Love and Kirk James. It's a good set up: half hour on, hour off, with plenty good lovin' on the food and drink and warm surroundings tip down at the Britomart Country Club, even on a cold, wet Tuesday night.
