Well, all I can say is wow! Saturday was a late start and we cruised on down to the Pavilion for Jill Scott. Most entertaining was the en masse dancing in the warm up. Jill is a true artist, poet, storyteller and soul diva. Very impressive. A meal and disco nap were in order before the night arrives.
Patrice Rushen and friends were first up for us – she was polished in a jazz funk way – but a little too downbeat for us at midnight. Kenny Dope beckoned an he threw down some classic Masters At Work tunes. Our man Joey Negro followed with what was, for me, the set if the weekend. Vintage early house and garage. LFO, Voodoo Ray- you get the idea. Brilliant.
Danny Krivit was kicking some disco downstairs so we got amongst that until it got a bit much – house was needed and Kerri Chandler was doing his thing in the Powerhouse. Karizma stepped up and let Kerri play keys for a while then they jammed B2B. Sorry Greg Wilson we were hammered and needed a shower and bed. Another top night.
Did someone say Chicago House after party on Sunday? Hell yes.
