Hi Funkbox followers, this weeks blog comes straight from another hectic week. The week was kicked off with our DJ Terry L suppling music for St George’s day celebrations at The Fatlin & Firkin – a good time was had by all and everyone showed us their patriotic side. We were back at the Firkin again on Thursday with DJ Aaron C for our usual end of month slot, this coincided with one of the Teams leaving drinks. Thanks for all the great comments on Twitter about the night keep them coming we like to hear your enjoying yourselves. Also on Thursday we had our weekly event at Bar Blanco called ‘Shuffle’ where you get to see the more chilled out side of us playing Classic R’n’B & Sexy Soul. Friday night was the first outing of our new piece of equipment the Pioneer Aero – this was being tested out for the evening at The Valentine by our DJ Stu French and DJ Scott Rhyder. They commented that the Aero is a great piece of equipment with the benefit of having Pioneer quality but in an easily portable format. Although both are used to working from their CDJ 2000’s and DJM 900 they would both feel comfortable working from the Aero on nights when not all special features of CDJ’s and the mixer are required overall a welcomed piece of equipment to the company. Saturday night was a mixture of birthday parties at KC’s Bar and Bar3zero and a night of Soulful house,Chart & Club classics at the TOWIE hotspot Bar Blanco in Rayleigh. The busy week was finished with us contributing to a Breast Cancer Charity event at Bar Blanco – a cause very close to our hearts. Over £13000 was raised for the charity at which there were a mixture of singers & entertainers – the highlight of the day was an auction to win a date with TOWIE’s Charlie King. Well done BarBlanco for a top day. Well thats it for this week, special dates to keep in mind -Soul Weekender this Bank Holiday Sunday at Bar3Zero and not forgetting our annual Boat Party on Sunday 26 May – check the website for more details.
