Wow WHAT A DAY!
Sunshine, Dancing, Family, Friends and LOADS OF LIVE MUSIC performed by loads of great bands and solo artists.
With an early start to assist our friends and mates from The Repro Jam Squad to set up the event PA and sound system kindly supplied by Stuart Russell of the band. www.reprojammsquad.com
The day started with the opening act being introduced by the MC:
The Inspiration FM - MC
With a succession of solo artists that included some great performances by Daniel Knight, Carl Spence, Luna Nightingale and Anna Marie Johnson who put in a great live performance.
Daniel Knight... doing his thing, brilliant!
Carl Spence... wowzers, some great tracks, worth a look see!
Then it was the bands turn, with Saving Amy & The Barratts who were both amazing.
SoulMoFunk played a great set starting their set with a band special intro in to Randy Crawford's, 'Street Life' followed by Earth Wind & Fire's 'Fantasy' and so on to EWF's September and many more to include guitar solos by Martin (nick named The Train) who played 'Love Ballard' and 'Give Me The Night' by George Benson.

Closing the event finally at 8pm was the superb local retro 70's funk band that is The Repro Jam Squad. Hat's off to them, literally in the case of their keyboard player who wears a Top Hat and bright colour shirt to match...
Repro Jam Squad Keyboard player... dress sense questionable, (lol) but what a player! Hat's off to you Sir!
The Squad were AWESOME!
Repro Jam Squad in full flight with the Mothership well and truly landed in Northampton.
Their were also some excellent DJ's present from Inspiration FM (107.8 FM) who mingled with the crowd, namely Mark Dean the station controller, Paddy Grady and Soul Boy Matty and many more. It was great to meet the DJ's and the excellent sound crew managed by Steve Dunkley, bassist with the Repro Jam Squad.
So special thanks to Stuart Russell and Steve Dunkley for the excellent sound system on behalf of Inspiration FM and congratulations to the dedicated team at Inspiration FM, Northamptonshire's first and only Multicultural Radio Station. Check them out at 107.8FM or www.inspirationfm.com
So what a great family, community day was had by all...
Soulful luv SoulMoFunk Band... & the SoulMoFunk Family
