Watermelon 4 copyWatermelon is one of the two night’s I started at West Coast’s Black Cat Club. I wanted something of the spirit of the old Shaft at the Zap, Brighton; funk, soul, disco. Here’s some of what I played last night, 7th March:

  • James Brown: Get Up Offa That Thing
  • James & Bobby Purify: Shake A Tail Feather
  • Sly & The Family Stone: Dance To The Music
  • Beginning Of The End: Funky Nassau
  • Henry Brooks: Mini Skirt
  • The Third Degree: Mercy
  • Dee Lite: Groove Is In The Heart
  • Dorothy Moore: Here It Is
  • Thelma Houston: Don’t Leave Me This Way
  • James Brown: Get Up I Feel Like A Sex Machine (Pt 1)
  • De La Soul: The Magic Number
  • Coasters: Love Potion No. 9
  • The New Jersey Kings: Spinning Wheel
  • Millie Jackson: My Man, A Good Man
  • Harold Mabern: I Want You Back
  • MFSB: Family Affair
  • Johnny Otis: Watts Breakaway

Fancy some of that? I’m back for Watermelon again on Saturday 16th May.
