Thanks to everybody who came along to last night's debut Sunday Joint at Senses, we hope you all had as good a time as we did. For those of you who didn't make it - you missed a whole bunch of funk, soul, reggae, latin, jazz and hip-hop, complimented with some nice purpose-made animations and cult-tv shows, projected across the walls - 'Monkey' was a big hit... so we hope to see y'all next week. We welcome any feedback, so please use the comments link - to let us know what you like / dislike about the Sunday Joint and how you think we can make it better. In the meantime - here's a bunch of photos that we took in the club last night: click on the thumbnail to view a full-size version.

What Music Plays At The Sunday Joint?
A thick and tasty stew of Funk, Soul, Jazz Breaks, Roots Reggae flavoured with some Latin Boogaloo and spiced with a little Afrobeat and Old-School Hip-Hop. A delicate blend of tunes both classic, rare and contemporary… James Brown, Curtis Mayfield, Stax, Betty Davis, Sly Stone, The Meters & Soul Jazz… Willie Bobo, Ray Barretto, Fania & Vampisoul… through to the 21st Century sounds of Quantic Soul Orchestra, Jamie Lidell, Plantlife, Sharon Jones, Ninja Tunes and Quannum. A simmering cauldron of beats & breaks, where anything goes as long as the main ingredient is SOUL.

Who DJ’s At The Sunday Joint?
• Lloyd Thomas – if all the beats in this man’s laptop were laid end-to-end, they would reach the moon. Lloyd has played extensively in the UK and also at a great many barrio bars in his occasional home of Medellin, Columbia.
• Roger C – a DJ for twenty years, there are not many places where Roger has not spun his extensive collection of vinyl & cds. He started the original Sunday Joint in 1997 where it ran for a year at the Vortex Jazz Bar in North London, providing a platform for local DJ’s and musicians to perform. After re-locating to Australia in 1999, Roger started the second Sunday Joint in the Glebe, Sydney which ran throughout the long hot summer of 1999 – 2000. This led to a two year DJ residency on Eastside Radio in Sydney – producing his own soul & funk show “Fight The Power”.
• Online DJ mixes are available from the website below.
