60s Themed 70th Birthday Party


It was a privelege to be asked to supply entertainment and PA services for a grand 60s themed 70th birthday party for a private client in West London. As well as myself supplying tunes for both the welcome and party I was joined by two West End singers. They delivered an exciting rendition of a song especially written by the husband of the lady for whom the event was staged. It was a fantastic ocassion and all went exactly as planned.

For this event I supplied:

  • personalised 60s themed DJ booth

  • mood lighting

  • PA for the singers

  • wireless microphones for the singers and speakers

  • music for welcoming and the party (no music wanted for background to dinner)

All Set, DJ Jules, London Party DJ, Wedding DJ London

60s themed personalised DJ booth - Op Art to the front, Warhol's Soup to one side and Twiggy to the other.

The client has a strong interest in music personally and I was given some strong pointers as to what was wanted both for welcoming and later in the evening. I then expanded upon this and in the client's words the music "was just perfect" - see the full playlist below.
