Charlotte's 21st Birthday Party @ The Griffin Inn, Swithland, Leicester

Recently I was the DJ at Charlotte’s 21st birthday party and also provided all of the sound and lighting (mobile disco) equipment as well as venue uplighting for the event at the Griffin Inn, Swithland, Leicester.

Having DJ’ed there several times before, I know what a fantastic venue it is, both for birthdays and also for weddings as well.

A couple of weeks before the party, Charlotte emailed me a list of some of her favourite tunes she wanted me to include on the night. I was really impressed with her very eclectic selections, which some fantastic chilled out house music that worked really nicely as the ‘warm-up’ set for the first few hours whilst everybody was arriving and socialising. Then as the party got going I mixed in her oldshool RnB selections as well as some dance tunes (including House Every Weekend, of course! Excellent choice Charlotte), and even the odd cheesy party classic, then we rounded off the night with some sing-a-longs too.

It was a fantastic night with a crowd really in the mood for a party! I love gigs like this because everybody was up for a good time and I got to play a really wide selection of music. The dance tracks went down really well along with plenty of classic RnB, and even the odd cheesy party tune like the Macarena (they requested it so don’t blame me for that one!).

It looked like everybody had a great night and I it was fantastic to receive this facebook review afterwards:

“(5 Stars) We hired Andy for our daughters 21st Birthday Party at the Griffin Inn, Swithland and as with most of these things choosing the right person comes with a high degree of trepidation because you want to get everything right and don’t want a car crash of a disco. We needn’t have worried in this instance, Andy absolutely got everything spot on, he steered us towards the correct sort of equipment, inĀ this instance the venue lighting, which was brilliant. He took our list of songs and dovetailed them into his set list, he was very polite and accommodating to all of our requests, we would absolutely recommend Andy for any special occasion with out doubt. Thank you Andy for helping to make a very special night special. Pete”
