BOSTON DJ Pete Martin is returning to the area after a small break with an event which started 16 years ago.

Chunky Funky started in Boston and used to be a monthly thing continuing on a regular basis at various venues in the town up until last Christmas.

It was also tradition to do Chunky Funky goes to the Seaside which was usually held at Rhinos in Skegness.

This year, the evening returns on Saturday, at the Grand Central, in Skegness, and will be headlined by Pete, Brandon Block, Hed Kandis’ Phutek and Jay Le Funnk.

The event promises to cater for all musical tastes in dance genres including old skool and today’s clubbers who would have bought that music while still at school or college.

Pete, under the guise of Sleazesisters, has released remixes of big names such as Steps, Samantha Mumba, Christine Aguilera and has recently released a new album on all major download sites.

The new album, Revolution By Sleazesisters, has the full version of his 1995 dance hit and Ibiza anthem Lets Whip It Up (Go Girl).

It also includes new singles from Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’s Samantha Fox and boasts a new track for the Olympics, amongst others.

Pete hopes there will be chances to bring Chunky Funky to Boston.

He said: “After taking time out following a serious accident then shingles it's nice to be bouncing back and, with Boston in my mind, I hope to be doing a lot more.”

The night at the sea front club takes place from 9pm-4am.
