Wedding at Hedsor House – Taplow

Last weekend, I got to DJ at Hedsor House near Taplow. Due to the wishes of the bride and groom, there are no pictures or playlist from the wedding or the reception. I have however put together a few words and images of the amazing venue itself. Hedsor, which dates back to 1166, was on one occasion the home of Princess Augusta, Dowager Princess of Wales, mother of George III and the originator of Kew Gardens. The house and its

2017 Queens Cup After Party

We moved back to the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club for this years Queens Cup After Party. Guests started arriving from Guards where the Cartier Queens Cup had been held from 18.00 and by 20.00 we already had over 300 people with even more turning up later. The crowd was the usual mix of polo players, grooms and party people and the music I played reflected this. Also impacting on the music was the weather, the temperature was way

Best 18th birthday party

2017 Opening Party for the UK Polo Season

The promoter wanted to try something different for this years Opening Party for the UK Polo Season, rather than a nightclub and a start of 10.00pm on a Sunday evening he wanted to go for a smaller venue and an early start. When we met for the site visit I was very impressed with the layout of Westcroft Polo clubs facilities and felt that I could quite easily turn the venue into a pumping little party venue. On the night I used

Eighteenth birthday in Berkshire country estate

Eighteenth party in Berkshire - They wanted it to be like a club rather than just another 18th birthday party. Nice and loud as well, so I installed a 10,000 watt JBL sound system which made the room shake. Some computer controlled lighting and a graphics projector with the images synced to the music. The tunes where to be current commercial house. I also installed smoke and lasers for a more clubby effect. Being on the promo list for many

Bashment 21st birthday Party in Kingston -Surrey

21st Parties where the guests are over three generations can be quite tricky add a request for a fair amount of Bashment music but still play tunes for the older crowd and it is a challenge to keep the dancefloor busy. There are all types of tune that could fit into the Bashment bracket and I tried to keep the songs I played to the more know tracks. Mum text me the next day saying "Thank you for your hard work

90’s House Party for a 40th birthday

90's House Party - Can you play house music all night long? Yes I can and all the next day if you want. Unfortunately we had to stop at midnight, but the 90's House Party could have carried on all night. What helped was having guests that in the main all wanted the same musical genre and had come out for a night of fun and dancing. With the exception of happy birthday and a few requests, House Music is
