More than just a DJ

London Party DJ for New Years Eve at Eltham Lodge

December 31, 2014

This was a grand affair for the members of the oldest golf club in England - The Royal Blackheath Golf Club (also known as Eltham Lodge) - where I am the preferred supplier for music and lighting.  Club Captain Tim and his wife Lorraine wanted a very special welcome for their guests and so I arranged for

 

  • external coloured lighting to the front of Eltham Lodge

  • candles for the front steps

  • mood lighting throughout the ground floor, stairs and top landing

  • welcoming music for the drinks reception (see the full playlist below)

  • party DJ, with a 2am finish

 

Adding archirtectural lighting and real candles to the venue entrance immediately creates a special impact as guest arrive.  Catching the mood early is something I would recommend for every event.

The mood was continued into the front reception area and throughout the venue - ground floor, stairwell and first floor landing.

The guests were well looked after by their hosts, Club Captain Tim and wife Lorraine; good hosting of course is critical for a great event.

With a lovely welcoming ambience and good hosts a great party generally ensues, and this night was no different......lots of good dancing.

I run the chimes and we see in 2015 - Happy New Year!!!

End of the night, a great evening, dancing to Frank's New York New York..
