The TRIP at the afroba SESSION 77 with vintage vinyl-27 th. AUGUST 2011, PLAYLIST. MORE PLAYLISTS AND DETAILS AT www.jimz.biz and AFROBA GROUP on FACEBOOK.
Well this is just like the way I love a session to be. A good crowd in with the bar not too rammed, but just right. Plenty of requests and most of my “planned” tunes getting on. It was a busy few days for me at the afroba as I had done TRACKS and GROOVES two nights before and was limbering up for REGGAE STEADY GO, the day following. The next session is on SEPTEMBER 24 th., with TRACKS AND GROOVES on SEPT. 29th.
Thanks for reading this and keep on afrobaring-JIM (JIM B. DONOVAN on FACEBOOK)
