Funky Fireworks ; )

Hi everyone,

Hot on the heels of our packed October session... ; )

The wonderful, smiling, funky and soulful group is happening once again on Saturday 2 November at Ronnie Scotts' Upstairs Bar, DJs are our friends at Funky Nation.

Our Meetups at Ronnies have always been a huge success and new Funkateers coming down can expect an open and lively crowd. Warm and friendly people, lots of banter, all into the music, all about the music ; ) Feeling those amazing grooves and loving the non-stop dancing!

There's plenty of opportunity to meet and chat to other Funkateers.. last time we completely filled the dance floor!

Look forward to seeing you there!

Peace & Love

    Hi Mark,
    It was good to see you and talk to you again!
    I had an enjoyable time dancing and meeting friendly, party-loving people at the
    Funky Fireworks Event at Ronnie Scotts.
    I'm looking forward to the next one!

    Mark I've got "We've got the funk" by Positive Force on MP3. If you want it PM me where to send it.

    Don't know which Bernhard had the funk though - can't find anything online! :0)

    Hi Mark, atmosphere and vibe is always on the money and I agree it can only get better. Last meet set up such a high standard that anything less can be noticeable .

    Not one for those in our group who like their classics in Soul; funk and Rare Grove, with a tinge of House et al. The female DJ at last Meetup had the "right balance" and kept the floor "just as busy". She played to the ladies who like to grove with hip sway. She also threw in an interesting and knowledgeable mix of classics to keep the old school camp happy, all in all, a very intelligent set. I like others in our group did not break a sweat, so not our normal shirt ringer. The DJ's played to the the average punter and in a sense, job done. However, no slow and gentle build up before, house kicked in. This was about quantity rather than quality and my wallet did not take a hammering, so not sure if the job was done in that respect. I come for the music and if that's not happening you tend to notice the other things mentioned in previous posts???? However, good vibe but came up short on the funk/Soul that makes our group tick, so like some I left early.

      I've always been indebted to Ronnies and Mike V at Funky Sensation/Nation for their support in getting this Meetup going early in 2012. As a startup it has been blessed with the Ronnie Scotts kudos and this has encouraged many people to come down and enjoy the funk and soul sounds they love, with a crowd that feels it too. The goal of this group is to evolve into a regular funk & soul club night where the stronger, more passionate grooves and songs are played loud.. ; )

      November 3, 2013

    • Mark A.

      In the meantime, I am happy to dance and enjoy the mixed bag of DJs that Mike Vitti/Ronnies serve up ; )

    Yes agree, when the music is "just nice" some will look to the vice but vibe as always, is nice and that's what makes Ronnie's a great place to party.

    Hi Mark,

    I love funk so really enjoyed the October funky night out.
    Great to just have a good old boogie and a laugh! It was a bit of a shame that the replacement DJ wasn't as good as the earlier female DJ. I look forward to the Nov session and thanks for organising such a fab group. Rak
