40th Birthday Party, Arnos Manor Hotel Bristol 16/08/2013

Ok, so I guess I was in my element for this party. Being 40 always helps when DJ'ing at a 40th - and as the birthday boy was a massive fan of Depeche Mode we couldn't think any more alike when it came to music for the night.

Fancy dress helps too - it makes people smile before the evening has even kicked off. Some people had made loads of effort with Teen Wolf being a particular favourite of mine.

By midnight everyone was ready for a change of pace, and decade - the guests had done so well dancing to four hours of continuos 80's music that we decided a bit of 90's would go down a treat - which of course it did.

The venue was great, the guests looked brilliant and the birthday boy looked exhausted by the end of the night - excellent fun all round!

A beautifully decorated room all ready to go - 80's style!
