|EBONICS @ Club Fez, Gig Review|
|The News - Gig Guide|
|Written by Tony Pabla|
On the 8th of March I made a point of travelling to Cambridge to see
the Legendary Jazzy Jeff play @ The Fez Club.
(Bhavin, V J & Mandi) after they all pulled out one by one!
what seemed a eternity (all of 15 minutes), I was guided to the club by a group
of young clubbers from Huntington (2 of them via America first) who have made it
there mission in life to get to EBONICS @ the Fez every Tuesday night!
Now never having been to Cambridge before in my life, I was surprised to see
the club already buzzing with a good crowd & it was only 10.30pm.
o I could say those oh so famous "I'm with The DJ" word's.
I entered into the main room, which is where the dance floor is!
So I was surprised to see, the crowd I had just pushed & squeezed thru,
were not even in the main room..
heaving dance floor, where she give me the bad news!!!
I carried on with my head held high!
late 30's (maybe some into the 40's).
"Rappers Delight by The Sugarhill Gang".
at this point 5/6 members of the crown busted into a old skool dance routeing, that carried on into the
next track as well (reminding me of KID & PLAY from the House Party movie's)
had me partying like a madman with ants up his pants & making me wish I kept my promise to myself to sort all
my vinyl's out into alphabetical order!
& my first thought was "FIGHT", not that I'm a violent person or anything, but when I looked towards the centre of the circle, I was looking at a body popping & break-dance contest going on with members of the crowd strutting
there stuff & trying there utmost to out dance the person before them!
back In the States, and that Tricka Technology (Kraft Kuts & Fi Skillz) would represent him,.
I & certain members of the crowd, seemed to thing that 1 instrumental is cool, 2 is pushing it, but to play 3/4 instrumental's back to back??? Sorry geezah's you might be talented, but your in a nightclub & not playing instrumental
for people to try & sing to like if they were in a Karaoke bar/restaurant!
(now I know why they have that nickname), as she was pulling out all the stop's & proving why she is
regarded as one of the top DJ's in the country!
were grinding, & moving to the sounds of Dancehall/ Ragga tunes.
rude boy's or rude gals in there.
door staff, the bar staff & the crowd are all chilled out,and willing to pose for a picture,
I can see EBONICS lasting a long time.
