I have had my ticket for sometime now and I am getting excited to see the guys perform again. I have just caught my friend Angelo Earl at the airport with the guys getting ready to come over to Europe. Angelo plays guitar with Jack Ashford's Funk Brothers and I am really looking forward to meeting up with again in Manchester.
I first met Angelo over in Memphis a few years back and have visited his Complex Club on a few occasions. Angelo was behind the excellent Tim Terry album which I featured on my Dark End Of The Street blog last year.
The Funk's gig in Manchester is at the excellent Bridgewater Hall - you can get details as follows:
