On Saturday the 28th of March we had the pleasure of providing the entertainment for Marie Collins belated 70th Birthday celebrations held at Norwich County Council Social Club.
Marie's son Jez had previously booked with us to provide a Mobile Disco for the party in January , unfortunately we had to reschedule due to Marie having to under go a minor operation and as we had been recommended to the Collins family he worked around our booking schedule as to maintain that Starstruck Roadshow could provide the entertainment.
As regular visitors to the County Hall social Club we already have an good understanding of the lighting and sound requirements for functions held at this venue, on this special occasion we opted for the S&H Black star-lite professional DJ booth (Shown in the picture) to add a touch of class to Marie's Milestone birthday party.
Having already spoken to Marie prior to the engagement to discuss the way she would like the party to be lead in relation to music styles, and presentations etc, the night went very smoothly.
As agreed on arrival of the 100 plus guests we kept the background music low key as to allow the mass of family and friends to chat and reminisce on old times, prior to playing Classic tunes from the 50's , 60's, 70's,80's,90's 00's and present day as we were entertaining a large number of mixed age groups and the dance floor was kept full regardless.
After the Hog Roast buffet (Which I really enjoyed!) Marie made a emotional speech and took a Slow Dance with her devoted Husband Norman to the song "He aint heavy" by the Hollies , this song holds special meanings to them both and there loving family.
The remainder of the evening consisted of Party tunes and once again a full dance floor, I was over whelmed with the kind comments of people stating how much they had enjoyed the night in addition to the round of applause that was also given after the closing song.
Nights like this make me realise why i have been involved with this Industry for over 20+ years....Thankyou!
