The Circle Bar
July 25, 2004
D.J. Assfault spun Soul/Funk records at The Circle Bar Sunday night.
Assfault played national and well-known material like Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground," but he had a thing for local artists who recorded before 1980--Abraham and The Cassanovas, Mary Jane Hooper, Eddie Bo, Alvin Robinson, etc.
There weren't a lot of people around, so Assfault started his set with brief 45's to keep his music changeover brisk. Most of it was soulful stuff, I slowly rocked my head to. Assfault also pulled out a super nasty Funk song--too hot in the hot tub!
The music was enjoyable. I liked hearing obscure Soul from Shreveport. Assfault didn't have a pre-ordained set, so if y'all get out there and dance on Sunday nights, he told me he'll turn up the heat.
