Summer of ’18! (Part 2)

Written by   in 

We seemed to be spending quite a bit of time between Cardiff and Swansea this summer, primarily with birthday parties. The last couple of weeks have been cooler, thankfully, so has made the moving and setting up of sound and lighting equipment much easier. There’s been a change in crew which line of some of the crew – some new guys coming in and still keeping in touch with long term friends, who will always be family.

In the city of Swansea, we travelled to Mumbles at did an 80th Birthday Party, for a regular customer at the West Cross Inn, Mumbles, Swansea. We always have a wonderful time with them and they always welcoming.  In Gowerton, we did a birthday disco and the Conservative Club, in Gowerton, playing loads of requests from the 190’s and quite a few Rock tracks. DJ Diamond Dust made a return visit to the Samlet Club, Swansea for a friend and former neighbour to his birthday. I

DJ in Tenby

A return to our regular Summer venue, i.e., New Minerton Holiday Park, Tenby, where we entertained the children with magic, balloon modelling, parachute games and the ever popular Mascot the Robot Dog. We  rounded up the night with disco.

We worked in Whitland Memorial Hall for a 7th birthday Party, which is not far from our usual venue in Tenby. The usual routines with magic and the Robot Dog were a great success. We ran more lights and actually had a chance to use the smoke machine. Quite a few venues don’t allow this as more and more places have smoke detectors.

It’s been a great summer with lots of people to meet and lots of places to see. The adventure continues!

Summer of ’18!
