Neil Gits Everything In Place

12th November 2012
Posted by Neil Matthew

Technical issues prevented me from updating the blog before the weekend – OK, I admit it, I forgot my password ! Well, I AM an “Old Git” – what do you expect ?!  But … here we are now ready and raring to go with tonight’s episode of the show, just ahead of the big “Old Gits Soul Night Out” at Billericay Town FC on Frdiay. I do hope if you listen to me regularly on a Monday (or Saturday!) that you can make it along and enjoy an evening of 70s & 80s soul, jazz-funk & disco, much the same as you hear me play each week. I have lined up a couple of buddies just as old (or older even!) than me to play alongside me with a couple of names you may well have seen play at some of the gigs I push on the show too. Tune in tonight from 7pm to hear more about what’s in store and just enjoy some good tunes to brighten up a grey old Monday. Here is last week’s playlist…
