Saturday November 20th saw me at The Strand Hotel on Blackpools famous promenade Dj ing for Helen McAlpine’s 30th birthday bash. This was a fancy dress party with a Hollywood/Oscars theme night. Everyone went to great lenghts to make some amazing outfits, the Tinman from The Wizard of Oz and Helen as Fay Wray from the King Kong movie with a giant ape hand around her waist looked superb. The music played was a mix of up to date tunes and some big 90s dance anthems. During the buffet,which is one of the best you can have on the Fylde coast, a nice mix of Michael Buble/swing music was played. After buffet Oscar trophies were given out to best male,female,couple and child in fancy dress then it was crank up the volume and bang out the hits! Arms of Loren by Evoke and Hideaway by Delacy really got the party going. A great night was had by all but I am still in shock after one of The Pink Laides from Grease who we shall call “Frenchie” to save her blushes did spend the night mooning at everyone! I have had a couple of sleepless nights since this unfortunate event but am getting over it now! Thankyou to the hard working guys at The Strand for looking after me and their hospitality,if anyone is looking for a hotel to hold an event in Blackpool give these guys a go….you will be pleasently suprised. Christmas is looming large now so until the next time….keep happy.
