More than just a DJ

Charity Ball, Fantastic Night

November 28, 2015

I was delighted to be invited back for the second year running to supply a DJ service and mood lighting for Charlotte's Grand Charity Ball in aid of two very worthy cancer charities.   Last year had been an absolute blast and sometimes that can be a hard one to follow.  However, I needn't have been concerned; it was another great night.

 

As always I matched the mood lighting to the table decor - pink - to give a cohesive feel to the venue.  As many said, the venue looked lovely.

 

 

The full playlist for the evening was as follows:
