April is always a busy month in entertainment but 2012 seems to have taken this to a new level. This weekend has seen a club gig, two radio shows, a wedding fair and two weddings – all in a couple of days!
The weekend started with my old friends from Heart 100.7 on the Club Classics tour at Sence Birmingham. A fantastic venue and a few hours of 90’s and 00’s club classics are a fab way to kick off the weekend. Saturday and Sunday both had early starts with broadcast commitments on Free Radio and Gem 106 and Sunday also meant a few hours at Ettington Park to exhibit sat their wedding fair.
I was at Ettington Park on Saturday for the first of two wedding celebrations this weekend and two MASSIVE nights were had by all. On Saturday Kate and Shaun celebrated becoming Mr & Mrs Barnett with a night climaxing in full on dubstep and hip-hop! I pride myself on the technical rig that we put in for any event and always boast that we are mobile nightclub and not mobile disco (euw, I hate that phrase) and modern music styles showcase this perfectly. The dubstep sounded awesome and was the perfect audio juxtaposition to the traditional surroundings of Ettington Park.
Last night it was the turn of Stephen and Julie to celebrate their big day at Wroxall Abbey in Warwickshire. With over 170 guests to DJ for Sunday weddings rarely come as big as this and the characters were larger than life too. Stephen and Julie are a little more mature than our average clients and the life experience that they’ve both accumulated have made them confident, outgoing people with a real passion for life. This was apparent from their choice of first dance. Let’s face it, rarely do clients opt to do a routine to the theme from Tom Thumb! Brilliant. It’ll so be on YouTube. Julie is a hair stylist by trade and she runs a large business in Birmingham so a lot of her guests are also hairdressers and these guys know how to party!!
