Halloween Disco – Fairy Tales gone wrong

This was my first time playing at The Wharf in Teddington, London, although I had been there as a customer several times and always enjoyed myself.

They played wedding favourites and I followed on with some funk and disco till midnight, from midnight till 02.00 it was more orientated to
