Last night Mrs C and I were the wedding DJs for Mike and Grace Hughes at the Spa Centre in Leamington. And what a do! It was a great pleasure to provide wedding entertainment for over 400 guests in a traditional theatre type venue. Irish dancers, air guitarists and a 9 piece swing and soul band made up the entertainment when I wasn’t on stage.
The bride and groom were real fun as were their friends family and guests. From the off the atmosphere was fab and the night was a pleasure to be involved with. Being high up on a stage gives you a great vantage point and it’s a real pleasure to watch a throbbing dancefloor. I’m really proud that happy smiles are becoming a Clarkey dancefloor trademark, with the odd ‘hands in the air’ moment too!
Big love to Kelly, too. After exhausting training for all of 10 minutes and heaps of practice (another 10 minutes!), Kel finally took to the decks to drive the music whilst I hosted the air guitar competition. She did a top job too. Well done, Babe!
A mention for the band too. Stirling Austin and his Swing & Soul band are a 9 piece from London who kept the crowd moving brilliantly. A mixture of swing, motown, big band and soul really complimented my pop, dance and R&B tunes. Live musicians are always a pleasure to work with but a swing band with brass section and all was a real experience.
Watch out for some video footage too. We had a little handycam doing the rounds and I promise I’ll post some video very soon.
