Do you like dancing? I mean reaaaaaally dancing? To funk, soul, rhythm & blues, jazz, ska, etc? You do?
Are you in the environs of Newcastle upon Tyne? You are?
Then you should know about the Funky Butt Club. Upstairs at the Cumberland Arms in Ouseburn usually on the last Sunday of the month, 5-10pm, £3 in. Best dancing music and best dancing vibe in toon - and no taxis required!
Although it's generally on on the last Sunday of the month, it has been on its summer holidays and is now returning to bring funk to the dancing public of Newcastle on Sunday 13th October.
The resident DJs Lady Koo and Lord Leigh are amazing, plus they regularly bring in guest DJs to provide new funk directions. The atmosphere is great - a really mixed super-friendly crowd who are all into great music and dancing like fools.
You really should come.
Incredibly, the organisers have permitted THE CREATURE FROM THE FUNK LAGOON (ahem, you know how some people just love weird pseudonyms eh?) to do a guest spot at the 13th October event. He is very excited about this, as he loves funky music, and dancing like a fool, and the Funky Butt Club; but he is a little bit terrified, having not DJed for many a year, so he will be trying his hardest to make a good first impression...
