More than just a DJ

London Party DJ for Maggie

October 18, 2014

Maggie and husband Andy created some great props for their Hollywood themed party night and I added

 

  • Oscar/Golden Globe style music for the red carpet entrance

  • 'security' for the door

  • flame machines to flank the entrance door

  • mood lighting

  • large glitter ball

  • party entertainment

 

For music Maggie asked me to set the scene with appropriate music and then lots of old classics plus a sprinkling of more modern tunes.  I had a lovely email from Maggie shortly after the party:  "Hi Jules just wanted to say a huge thanks for making our party into a hollywood dream! We had such a good time. Best DJ ever!"
