More than just a DJ

London Party DJ Epsom for Diane and family

September 20, 2014

I was delighted to be Diane's party DJ to celebrate her 60th birthday along with close family and friends at the Conservative Club, Epson; booking courtesy of Berkshire Events.  The majority of guests dressed for the night and looked great in their party fancy dress - see below where they are watching a slide show of family pics, with Diane middle to the fore.

Diane had personally requested a music mix of mostly 50s rock n roll tunes, interspersed with liberal amounts of Imelda May, with latitude to play more expansively later in the evening - see the playlist below.   The stage area was fairly small and so I set up accordingly, making sure to wash the white ceiling with lots of colour.

It was a very sociable evening and I was delighted with the feedback from Diane and her daughter Kelly at the end of the evening "just what we wanted", "excellent".

The playlist for the evening was as follows:
