More than just a DJ

Big Night at The Rosie

March 24, 2018

A great family party night, with many close friends in attendance also.   The music was varied but I was pleased to play a good amount of Indie -  see the full playlist below.  With one half of the family Scottish there was a big Scottish influence at times - Scottish dancing plus the passing of the Cog, an Orkney wedding tradition.   It was a splendidly memorable occasion and at a venue I love working at - even with carrying the kit up to the first floor and out again!!
