Nicky and Mark’s summer party, 7th July 2018

Nicky and Mark’s Party

A few weeks ago, my mobile rang.  I was the lovely Nicky whose wedding I DJ’s at Upwaltham Barns way back in 2009.  “Brian, we are thinking of having a party, and wondered if you would DJ it?”  A quick look in the diary confirmed I was indeed available.  I also remembered Nicky and Mark’s wedding well for a number of reasons.  Their music requests were absolutely awesome, and very much in tune with the kinds of music I personally love.  It was a mix of decent 80’s dance and soul music, with the kind of house music I played for the legendary Houseproud nights, and not much in the way of cheese!!! Their guests were on fire, and they danced all night.  So, without hesitation, I took on this party!

Farm party

This party was held in a barn on the farm they live in near Wisborough Green in West Sussex.  The weather was stunning (yes, we did get a decent summer this year in the UK!), and as the party started, a few familiar faces who were at the wedding started arriving together with their guests.  As the sun set, the tempo went up, and the music did its magic till after 2am!

Here is what I played for Nicky, Mark, and their fab friends and family:
