Bank Holiday Boogie

And it's all on vinyl

Groove on down to Bridport Electric Palace for a Bank Holiday boogie on Saturday 29 April.

On the decks will be DJ Dr Funk (aka musician Mitch Norman), who has one of the biggest vinyl collections for miles around.

Dr Funk has been a DJ since the 1980s, when he had the midnight to 1am slot at Benson’s Nightclub in Yeovil. He later started a soul club in Bridport at The Cavity, which was run by Peter Bentley, below a dental surgery in East Street.

“I’d bring all my old 12” singles I hadn’t played for years and it was great, people loved it — we used to say the sweat was running down the walls — and I think it coincided with a revival in disco music at the time,” he said.

See the interview Mitch did withThe Marshwood Vale Magazine here.

Dr Funk has thousands of funk, soul and disco records, as his fans at the Palace well know. Tickets for the Palace gig cost just £5 (plus 50p booking fee) and are available here.  The event starts at 8pm and is for over-18s only.
