So I Saw Jeff Last Night...

Recommended Posts

So last night I rode solo and went to see Jeff perform at a local club near to me and as usual his set was amazing.  I haven't been able to see the last couple of shows so was excited to get back to seeing Jeff do his thing!  It amazes me that in all the countless shows I've seen Jeff spin no two sets are ever the same and he manages to keep the crowd partying from start to finish.

There was no Chris there this time so I don't know whether the Vinyl Destination series is still going or if he has another project on the go at the moment.  Steve and Ferno (along with Dayne) where there and as usual they really make you feel like part of the family.  I really have to stop and count my blessings that as a lifelong fan of JJFP, I, and a few others from the board are in the position to attend as many Jeff shows as we do and also get to hang out with the man himself afterwards.

Jeff played an eclectic mix of music which touched every person in the club...  some of the highlights for me where Summertime, Jeff's Reggae set, Jeff's West Coast Hip Hip Set and he even slipped in the Fiesta remix.  This is the first time seeing Dayne being Jeff's MC since Skillz has taken up DJ'ing full time and I must say he was extremely good.  He had the crowd hyped and knew Jeff's set inside out.  His freestyles were on point as well and extremely well delivered.  He is also a humble dude as well.  Having had a brief conversation with him, I can see him doing big things in the music biz.  I was so pleased to get the physical copy of the album as well.

So after Jeff's set, I get access to the VIP section and get to have a chat with Mr Magnificent.  I immediately tell him how ridiculously excited I am about the tour scheduled for next year and how we are all waiting with bated breath for more details to be announced.  I also say that I am looking forward to when Will and Jeff get their project underway and we finally get that illustrious JJFP album we have all been waiting for.  Jeff said that the tour is going to be something special and told me some of the ideas they have spoken about for it. (it sounds great!!!) He said that Will is really excited to do it so I think we can safely say that it will happen in some form or fashion.

Whilst I was there, Jeff also told me about the new DJ Jazzy Jeff app that had literally just been released on the app store (he received the notification whilst we were talking).  He encouraged me to download it so of course I did and he said that I would be the first person in the world to have it which I was pretty chuffed about!

All in all it was an amazing night and the best part about it is I get to do it all again with Kev again on Saturday!  There was so many more questions I wanted to ask that I'll hopefully remember for the weekend.

All in all a great night with the baddest DJ on the planet and his amazing team around him.

Shout out out to Neil from the forum as well who spotted me from across the room who I had a brief conversation with!  Great meeting you dude and hope to see you at another Jeff show soon.

I loved reading that.  I haven't seen JJ+FP since 2002, so I'm anxious to see them some form or fashion.  Whether it's Jeff's set or a their tour, I'm anxious to attend something.

So I took the the drive down to MK solo.....after a long day at work it seemed a bit of an effort when I jumped on the M6  but it was more than worth it!!! It was the 4th time seeing Jeff this year and each time it has been different musically but the one thing every set has in common is that they are technically perfect! Got the chance to spend some time with Dayne, Ferno and Jeff briefly after the show all thanks to Steve...the guy is truly a gentleman! I relayed to Dayne that I have clearly seen his progression from witnessing him for the first time in April to this performance....he literally had the crowd in the palm of his hand and the mic presence of a veteran. I also had the pleasure of meeting Da Brakes and explaining that I had seen him before on the forum even if I did his name wrong, apologies Sir I won't make the same mistake twice. So overall a great show yet again, it says it all when having seen 4 shows this year I still enjoy every show as much as the first!! "MAGNIFICENT!!"

Sounds an awesome night. As Brakes said we'll be hitting up the show in Cambridge tomorrow night. I have a spare ticket going if any Brits on here fancy taking the plunge.

No, the Redditch show was the closest in April....the Nottingham show was the closest on this tour but unfortunately it was sold out. If i'm honest I actually like travelling to different parts of the country, makes it more interesting.

I get it Man. I guess me living in a small town its always a case of travelling. Milton Keynes would probably have bee the closest show Jeff has done to me but i was on holiday at the time.

It's interesting to see shows in different venues and fully appreciate the impact of music. The venue in Redditch was literally a pub whilst Milton Keynes was a superclub but Jeff and Dayne smashed both venues equally. Music truly is universal and it's interesting and educating at the same time to experience as much of it that i can.
