    I’m doing a night with some mates in december that’s going to be funk, motown, ska etc and wondered if people could suggest some really good tunes that I could play.

    I’m thinking along the lines of Blues Brothers- shake your tailfeather, Madness, etc. Doesn’t really matter what genre, just not dance.

    What do you reckon?

    Lovin a bit of Motown, theer is so much material its difficult to pick tracks, my interest started in the early 80’s in me full on Mod days so the first track that came to mind was –

    Stevie Wonder – Uptight (Everything’s Alright) ..lovin that tune

    You should ensure you have a delve into a bit of Northern Soul, you should never pass up the chance to check out _

    Dobbie Grey – Out on the Floor – ..that piano line is timeless and should be sampled…now !!

    Nice one guys. Some great suggestions there.

    I’m really pissed off at the moment. I’ve got tickets to see The Beat with Neville Staple (The Specials frontman) tomorrow night in Bury, and I’ve got to work!

    How gutted am I…………….. 😥
