40th Birthday party disco, Bristol 17th November 2012

It's been six years since I last DJ'ed upstairs at the South Bank Studios in Bristol's Southville - coincidentally at another 40th birthday party. Since then the owners may've changed but its still retained the rustic qualities that make it feel both relaxed and informal.

The night kicked off at 8pm with a 1 hour DJ set from a friend of the birthday girl and following that a two piece singer and saxophonist entertained the guests with swing anthems. Then it was my turn.

Musically we went on a real journey with everything from Gangnam Style to The Rolling Stones and Peter Andre to The Stone Roses being played. When someone requested some salsa music I pulled out an old favourite - a great cover of The Beatles Hard Days Night in the salsa style.

Everyone looked like they were having a great time and there was a good solid 3 1/2 hours of dancing until things had to come to an end at 2am : - (
