read an article on a post Bob Stanley on Guardian

"In the summer, the scene would move en masse to Ostend, Belgium's equivalent to Blackpool. DJ Freddy Cousaert played at the Groove, a late night downstairs bar frequented by US marines, tourists and prostitutes – it was Cousaert who later looked after Marvin Gaye during his 80s sejourn in Ostend. The music he played at the Groove included ska, Latin jazz and even Broadway songs such as Stranger in Paradise, or Whatever Lola Wants from Damn Yankees...."

credits:
    
Walker was born Autry DeWalt Mixon, Jr. in Blytheville, 
Arkansas[1] and grew up in South Bend, Indiana.
His saxophone style was the anchor for the band's overall sound.
The other original members of the group were drummer 
Tony Washington, guitarist Willie Woods, and keyboardist Vic Thomas.

  "Shotgun" is a 1965 single by Junior Walker & the All Stars, produced by
 Berry Gordy Jr. and Lawrence Horn.[1] It reached number one on
 the U.S. R&B Singles chart for fournon-consecutive weeks and was
 a Top 10 Pop smash, peaking at number four on the Billboard Hot 100.
Famous guitarist Jimi Hendrix performed the song live with the All Stars
. An unusual detail about "Shotgun" is that it uses only one chord 
throughout the entire song -- A-flat seventh.

PAWN SHOP SOUL





post some dispute in form but not in the background is always talking 
about soul music very good groovy, all this to show you "PAWN SHOP SOUL" 
which is in my opinion very promising.
a small sign to the festival programmers or clubs 
do not hesitate these are very great future


bio:
Founded in 2013 by veteran soul, funk, and jazz musicians, Pawn Shop Soul features 
a full horn line not often heard in this millennium. The horn front line stands 
and delivers on the powerful grooves generated by a five-piece rhythm section. 
An orchestra of soul all by itself, Hammond organ both sustains the groove and 
soars above it. Booty bumpin’ bio-rhythms are supplied by inter-locking traps, 
bass and congas. Satisfying body and soul, Pawn Shop Soul provides high-energy 

dance music in the tradition of Stax, Volt, Chess and many others.
