This was a ladies day out, shopping with a lunch and fashion show too. Greg Summers was the host for the day and he did a fantastic job if I do say so. I supplied the sound and lighting for the event, lighting up the catwalk and two dance floors too. An afternoon of dancing which was a great success raising money towards getting young people in to their first homes. Well done all concerned.
Christmas Party in the National Piping Centre, Glasgow
Well the Santa hat was on again last night… It was the staff at the Brediland Primary School’s Christmas dinner dance held at the National Piping Centre in Glasgow. I supplied the entertainment for them last year too so I knew it was going to be a good night.
The girls were in good spirits, on the dance floor from the very first song. Singing away along with the music, if some of them can get the words right….LOL I had lots of requests and was able to play all of them, even John Denver….!! Now they were surprised I had that one…LOL
I ended the night with the usual Christmas classics and everyone went home in good spirits… Hope to see you again next year..?
Well Last night saw me travelling through to Scotland’s capital to supply the entertainment for a corporate Christmas Party in the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh. It was a party for the staff at Brewin Dolphin & Stocktrade and boy there was plenty of them all in good spirits. They arrived at the reception about 7.00pm for drinks before coming upstairs for their meal at 7.30pm.
I had arrived about 4.30pm and setup in the corner of the dance floor and got the area cleared in good time for them coming in for food. Once they arrived I played the usual Christmas songs while they were eating their meal. The catering company were very organised, there was plenty of staff and the meals were being put out in a very timely and orderly fashion… They even gave me a meal…Whoopee…!!
After the meal, Alan “the person who booked be” came up and asked to say a few words and after that the lights went down and the dancing began…. What a night that was….!! The floor was full all night long and I very rarely got to choose a song, it was request after request all night long.
At the end of the night I had great feedback and there was even talk of booking me for next year’s Christmas Party…. Result..!!
NOTE: The venue has been suffering complaints from the neighbours regarding the volume of the entertainment… I was asked at the start of the night to turn it down a bit about 11.45pm and about that time I did in fact lower the volume, but the hall had a visit from the council while I was playing and they asked me to turn it down a bit more half way through the last song.
The Glasgow Tigers Speedway team and their friends celebrated their win this season in style at the Crowwood Hotel in Steps with DJ Shuggy in charge of the music. The formal presentations and discussions were fantastic and very humorous with everyone in good spirits, boy the drink was flowing.. LOL The disco was off to a late start because of the formalities but we rocked the joint till 1.00am and I had great feedback at the end of the night.
Feedback from the client:
"Thanks for a great night; the dance floor was the busiest I can recall at these annual end of season functions. We conducted our own feedback regarding the night & it was all very positive.. Regarding the disco, I would have no hesitation in booking you again for next year."
Excellent, news I am looking forward to seeing the team once again next year….!!
Now you all know me as a wedding entertainer….. YES
Well when a lovely voice came on the phone and asked if I could do the disco and supply a couple of PA systems for through the day as well at a corporate event, I thought… I have the equipment and I did it in the past so why not…!!
On Thursday 7th July 2011 representatives from Halarose Limited showed presentations of their newly updated software program to their clients. They spent the day explaining all the new features that they had made in their database system calling it a day at 5.00pm. Everyone retired to freshen up and back down for dinner for 7.30pm, after which I started the disco.
Knowing that my audience was not couples and that they came from all over the UK I was apprehensive on how the evening would go, but everyone seemed to gel and prove to be in the mood for a good night out, the floor was full right up to midnight…. I was worried about nothing apparently.
Next morning it was back on site again setting up a PA in the hall again for a half day session discussing the database again.. All done by 12.00pm and stopped for lunch then home.
All the management gave me positive feedback when done, and I bid them goodbye,
Where you there..? If so why not leave a message on this post for others to see..?
