Our pal DJ Mike Crash hosts a swingin’ soul music scene called Mixed Emotions Soul Club. It takes place on the first Friday of the month at a joint somewhere in Sunnyside, Queens called Sanger Hall. It’s not really a hall–more like a pub–but it is a good enough place for folks to clear out some tables and chairs and let the people dance to boss soul records. Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus was invited to be guest DJ on September 6.

We’ve worked with Mr. Crash before. He used to host a night called Shake Frantic at the Huckleberry Bar in Williamsburg, and, if memory serves (and it usually doesn’t) the two worked together at one of DJ Xerox’s Out of Sight soul nights at the Beauty Bar. Mr. Crash has some pretty darn good records and he sure as heck knows how to play them.

At Sanger Hall we were happy to see so many friendly faces–especially folks who live nearby. Who knew we had so many friends in that area? It was great to see them all. Miss Nancy Gardner was in attendance with her signature vegan brownies, plus her new creation: flowerless chocolate cake cut into bite-size pieces. Yummy!

When it was all over, Mr. Crash packed up his records and took off. The next day he flew to Italy for a vacation with his gal Grace of Spades!

Here’s a list of all the records played by Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus at the Mixed Emotions Soul Club event:

None of these records are for sale. Some of them may have links to the youtubes for the reader’s listening enjoyment.
