Group Description

...and the House of FUNK!



What is 'Old School' music? Since nobody really knows what 'Old School' means, I interpret this as being classic R&B grooves from the 70s' on up that moved the soul...'



So for me that period is approx 1975 - 1990. Black tracks, classic soul and smooth ballads with the right attitude.



Although many of you might consider this period earlier or later, I think that we all know what 'Old School' means. It's a mutual feeling. Some songs fit, some don't.



Don't try to explain why some songs are not and some are hot 'Old School' jams. For instance: Village People is definitely not what I mean by 'Old School'. Sister Sledge certainly is. A classic funk-soul song by Delegation is 'Old School' as well. That means that we can never be afraid to cross the "1990-1975" border. If a record/CD gives you the right feeling, it's OK. There is still no exact definition. I like that. Don't over-format music. You might be surprised.



This club, created by a working DJ/jazz station/voice-over artist who plays the kind of 'rare' grooves like no other. And for a living! I play hits like: Lillo Thomas, Kashif, Midnight Star, Kleeer, Melba Moore, Spinners, George Duke, Jeffrey Osborne, Chic, Grandmaster Flash, Marvin Gaye, Roy Ayers, Aurra, Mike Howard, SOS Band, Loose Ends, Donny Hathaway, Dayton, Tom Scott, BB&Q Band, D-Train, Barkays, Ashford & Simpson, Slave, Atlantic Starr, KC & The Sunshine Band and many more. RARE grooves! Grooves that never broke the top of the charts, but still move the soul.



Anyone who loves the 'Old 'School hits, come aboard, dance up a storm, feel the funk, share the love and your experiences of what moves your soul...
