“We Got Some Catching Up To Do” as we get “Keep On Walking” & Get “Lost In Music” with Jean, Kathy & CC @ Margate Soul Fest 2016
Celebrating 10 years like The Soul Survivors Magazine this summer Margate Soul Festival Weekender had the best weather for the annual celebrations. In conjunct with Mi Soul Radio, Eli Thompson and Mick Bradley has tirelessly made sure they put the soul into Kent’s soulful seaside town pulling out a few stops. With the aid of my longtime fellow Knight Of The Cameo Sound Table, Perivalian neighbour and friend Cleveland Anderson supplying some of the creme de al creme performing artists, Jean Carne, Shirley Jones and CC Pensiton, the weekend was most certainly a festive one. Well done to all who contributed Dj’s, performers and audience participators alike. I had turntable duties at my resident Lighthouse Bar Friday & Saturday and a Sunday night slot in more intimate The Black Cat club. I certainly enjoyed digging in the crates on all three occasions and you can revisit or enjoy what you missed via my Mixcloud posts. here are some Slave “Snap Shot” moments with some of the artist backstage as I was working harder than Dolly Parton’s “9-5” catching up on the goss!! I gotta say a big thanks to Jean Carne who shamelessly plugged The soul Survivors Magazine on stage during her set when she spotted me in the audience. I was beaming like a Cheshire but was also slightly embarrassed, however grateful that Jean did that selfless act during her set. lets see if the subscriptions rise due to that kind of endorsement. I think I’d look at booking ya tickets now before it’s a case of a Jackson’s “Heartbreak Hotel” trying to find accommodation as it goes quicker than Usain Bolt !!
Jean Carn @ The Winter Gardens Saturday evening. Catching up with Kathy Sledge after her great showcase & hanging with the very gifted vocal songstress CC Peniston!!
