70th Birthday Party Disco at Lion Hotel Shrewsbury May 2018
Saturday 5th May 2018, Probably one of the most fabulous fun birthday party evenings so far this year! Although I was honestly slightly apprehensive in advance of this event as a few days before I was handed a ‘type of music’ play list which consisted of 1950’s & 1960’s Rock and Roll, Country & Western, Irish Country, Quick step and then ‘later’ something for the younger ones!
The day started just before lunchtime at around 11 with setup at in the Adam Ballroom in the Lion Hotel, Wyle Cop, Shrewsbury. Setup was about two hours as I had room mood lighting to put in, stage lighting for a live singer, wireless microphone for the singer, Mixer unit, Dancefloor lights, DJ equipment and PA (Speakers).

Gala Birthday Party
The evening started at 5pm with a Champaign reception for all the guests so I was onsite for 4pm to do a final sound check, switch the room mood lighting on and then get the background music all up and running prior to the first guest’s arrival.
Eddie Cullen – The Voice of the Legends
During the meal live entertainment was provided by Eddie Cullen who performed a number of hits from the likes of Neil Diamond, Frank Sinatra, Michael Bublé etc.. Eddie was full of energy and got everyone engaging and singing along a great start to the evening.

Once the meal was finished the group decided to push the tables to the side and open up the room as a massive dance floor and no sooner had they done that, the dance floor was packed. The requests were coming in thick and fast all evening and the dancefloor was busy all night long.
