Disco Picture from Brampton Grange, Northamptonshire

Friday, June 8th, 2012

You may have seen this disco picture on my disco pictures page but I thought I would post it here as it has a nice shot of all the lighting effects in the background. It looks a little mad, I don’t always have all the lighting effects on at once but it was a request of the bride for this shot. She then sent it through to me after the event to use.

You will note this shot does have use of the smoke machine which does enhance the disco lighting effects considerably.

See here for more information about mobile discos in Northamptonshire.

Disco Feedback From Hanbury Manor

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

I provided disco services for a wedding at Hanbury Manor in Ware, Hertfordshire at the weekend. We were in the Thundridge Suite. Here is a brief but appreciative email from the client.

Adam

Thank you for providing great entertainment on Sunday night.

Sally and I and most importantly the guests all had a great time.

Disco Lighting and New Star Cloth

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

I took this small piece of video mainly to show how small the venue was. I was playing Latimer House but was in the Mews. Anyway that’s pretty boring however I thought I’d post it so I could show some of the lighting effects that are available and the new multicoloured and patterned star cloth I am now using.

Disco in Luton, Bedfordshire – The Strathmore Hotel

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

I recently provided a disco at The Strathmore Hotel in Luton, Bedfordshire. I have played the venue before some time ago now. Here is my updated review.

Location– Luton, Bedfordshire.
Travel Time –  15 minutes travel time.
Setup time – 1.5hr. Hard work going through internal corridors and using the service lift.
Space for full setup? – Yes,
Smoke Machine – No
Lighting – Could be switched off but was a bit dark, when on though it was a bit light. Lots of guests complained, not very versitile. Was on a dimmer last time so something has changed here, or staff didn’t know how to use it.
Noise / Sound Limiter – No
Layout – Bar in same room as Disco, Tables around edge of dance floor
Staff – Organised and Helpful except for lighting difficulties.

Wedding Disco – Latimer House – Buckinghamshire

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

At the weekend I played Latimer House in Chesham Buckinghamshire in the Mews. This is a smaller facility but pleasent. I have put together a review from my perspective of the facilities at the Latimer Mews and the services I can provide for this venue.

Wedding Disco Buckinghamshire, Latimer House

Wedding Disco Setup

Location– Chesham, Bucks

Travel Time –  45 minutes travel time. Setup time – 1hr.
Space for full setup? – Yes,
Smoke Machine – No
Lighting – 2 switches available to lower the lighting.
Noise / Sound Limiter – No
Layout – Bar in same adjacent room,
Staff – Organised and Helpfull.

Nice modern feel. I did find that the room for the disco was quite small with no room for tables or seating therefore people sat in the foyer where there was a selection of comfy sofas and where the buffet was served. This did make for a reduced atmosphere as everyone was quite spreadout.

Wedding Singer – Hannah Olivia – Latimer House

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

I played Latimer House in Chesham, Bucks at the weekend I was actually in the Mews. I met a wedding singer called Hannah Olivia who played the first hour of the wedding. She was an accomplished vocalist who played a selection of covers which I believe were specifically chosen by the Bride and Groom.
Hannah offers a versitile setup with a range of sizes from a single speaker for smaller rooms to a robust 4 speaker setup for larger venues, although with her powerful voice I’d be suprised that the extra amplification would be required. Hannah has been providing entertainment at restaurants and at weddings for 12 years and more recently has been working on getting her own music published as she is also a song writer.

All this form a 15 minute conversation! If you are looking for a wedding singer then Hannah is well worth considering. The prices sounded very reasonable her talent could enhance any celebration.
