Well what a weekend it has been. I was invited to DJ at Mr Douglas E Powell's Birthday Doo at Twister Valley in North Devon. And what a great evening it was.
Also playing tunes on the night were Mr Jim Jupp (Ghost Box) who played a truly marvelous set that included all sorts of goodies, from the likes of Ennio Morricone to The New Vaudeville Band's Winchester Cathedrel (this made me very happy) Before Mr Jupp, The ever wonderful Linda Spence got things moving with some Soul Funk and Reggae grooves which included a Reggae version of the Theme to Coronation Street. Finally Matt Brown and Shaun Winfield who played a great set between them starting with some old Country and Western Classics running through to some very choice 60s tunes. ( (my fav was Jackie Lee's On White Horses)
Visual oddness on the night was supplied by Mr Jez Stevens who entertained every one with some superb projections and slides.
I do believe Mr Powell was very happy with Night, and to show his appreciation he told me a very silly but funny joke about 3 balloons.
I should take this opportunity to mention that myself and Mr Powell have agreed to collaborate on yet another re-working of the old folk song The Bells of Paradise. This we hope to make available as a download at a later date.
Please check out the Alva version on Songs of Witchcraft and Magic.
