More than just a DJ

50s Themed 60th Birthday Party

March 19, 2016

This was Jules' first ever party (the client's not mine!) and she was so keen for it to go well.  No stone was left unturned in the planning and it showed in both the presentation and delivery.  The room was set up beautifully and I added mood lighting to complement.  The result was one of the best themed events I have been involved with, and all done on a very affordable budget.

 

Jules took the Classic service.  It being of a high standard it automatically includes some mood lighting, to which was added a further 6 units to give the room complete coverage.  The result was so good that the venue staff were saying "best they've seen" and many a photo was taken.

 

The music mix was to start 50s, return to theme during the evening as the set was expanded to play across the decades.  Jules had several special songs to be played - see full playlist below.
