Asbury Park's Finest Comes to Memory Lane. Sorry Bruce :(

This weekend we had the pleasure of welcoming two heavy record aficianados into our home away from home. Gracing the storefront was our bretheren DJ Prestige(center), and Larry Grogan(second from right).

My man Larry controls the http://funky16corners.wordpress.com/ website. Anyone who knows funk, and is akin to record diggin', knows Larry has been on the scene for some time sharing his knowledge and blessing us with some of the finest gems in soul music.

DJ Prestige has, by his own accord been diggin' all his life(well at least since he could work a turntable). He's blessed small clubs to big venues coast to coast. Besides being a self imposed facial hair expert, Pres' collection of funk is obscene. Check out both his sites,
http://fleamarketfunk.wordpress.com/ & http://www.djprestige.net/index.html, for just some of what he's been putting down for all us beat heads, soul gurus, and just music lovers alike.

It was a pleasure to finally meet both of these gentlemen whose sites I've mined for some time. They thanked the both Mike and myself for our hospitality and some good 45's for their future gigs. I had to thank them for the amazing dj set I witnessed Friday night. They are by far some of the nicest, most humble guys I've met on the dj scene.
BTW, my main man on the far right is DJ Birdman. He's responsible for getting the guys to come down and bless DC with their presence. He's also my dj partner and would have a fit if I left him out of this conversation. Check his blog (which can also be accessed to the far right of this page): http://jesgrew.blogspot.com/

Marshall and Mike
It was a gas meeting you guys and I wish I had more time to dig (I will be back!). You have a great spot there, and part of that is definitely the people running it.
See you next time I'm in DC.
