Dr Bob Jones

Legend is a term often over used but in this instance it’s fair to say, we definitely have one in the form of Bob Jones…

The Surgery flyer

A good friend of Weeksie from the soul scene, Jonesy’s career in the music business actually started way back in 1967 securing a gig at his local youth centre. After making his first ‘club’ appearance in 1971, his music policy was, as it is now, the highest quality black music, featuring soul, dance & jazz.

Bob played the first Caister Soul Weekender & went on to play at 23 more & has continued to play across the UK, Europe & the world.With his own club night called The Surgery in London’s West End, a successful soulful dance night at the Blue Note in Hoxton Square, Southport Weekender & later Tribal Gathering, Creamfields & the V98 festivals. He has also produced over 30 different artists including The Temptations, Al Green, Daryl Hall, Swing Out Sister, Izit, Squeeze & Bobby Womack. He has compiled collections for Mastercuts, Barely Breaking Even & Slip ‘n’ Slide Records & formed his own record label, Black on Black Records, a high quality Black Music primarily using British singers, songwriters & musicians.

A good friend of Andy Weekes, Jonesy was there spinning the grooves @ Summer Soulstice 2007, though for a while, he was in danger of being struck by lightening during a particularly lively thunder storm. Luckily for all of us, Dr. Bob survived & we’re still blessed to have this black music maestro on board the good ship Soulstice. Dr. Bob continues to DJ all over the world & you can catch his radio show on Mi-Soul every Sunday & at our 2017 event in the Connoisseurs tent, Bob was presented with a special Gold Disc by the Soulstice Crew to recognise his 50 years a DJ…

 

Dr Bob Jones, take a bow sir!
