Review of 2017

2017 has been a tremendous year for me. This will be my second year with DJ Diamond Dust and it’s been amazing yet again. It’s been phenomenal the  amount of fun I have had, the new skills I have learned, and  meeting some amazing new people.

The 3 gigs that I had to pick to be my favourite from 2017 are:

  • Bryncoch RFC (Birthday party and Christmas party)
  • Ynystawe Cricket Club (Children’s Christmas Party)
  • Tonna RFC (Birthday party)

I cannot wait for 2018 brings for me and the team. I would also like to thank Martin for giving me the opportunity to do this.

It has been quite a mixed bag of gigs. We were DJs in The Discovery Pub in Cardiff and Castlemead Hotel in Tenby. Tom and I have done a wedding disco at Beggar’s Reach, Milford Haven. We’ve done children’s parties in Llandaff North Community Centre, Cardiff and New Minerton Holiday Park, Tenby. We’ve worked at annual dinner in Chepstow Racecourse, and a few Christmas parties at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea.

Our 8-Foot-Robot-Cat has visited a few interesting venues including a day at Waterfront Museum, Swansea – Festival of Science week.

I have a really amazing, kind and hard working crew. I can say that without them a great deal of what has happened this year would not have been possible. Thank you guys…and thanks to you to our new and regular customers!

It’s that time of the year again! If I had to summarise this year with a word – it would have to be fantastic! This year has eye opener and helped be massively with my confidence, and becoming a better person. Also, throughout the year, I’ve learnt many new key skills that will help me in my later life. This year has also increased my skills because, I’ve been doing a lot more gigs and this has made me a better DJ and worker. Not many people can say they are a DJ throughout their teenage and adult years! It’s a dream job.

We’ve had some outstanding gigs this year with some phenomenal venues and guests. If I had to pick 3 gigs that I have attended it would have to be Chepstow Race course, Liberty stadium and Longford Memorial Hall.

Finally, I would like to thank Martin for allowing me to enjoy this job as much as I do, and letting me be a part of this wonderful group of people! Let’s hope 2018 is just as good as 2017 I can’t wait to see what skills and incredible places we will visit bring on 2018!

 Well 2017 certainly didn’t disappoint with there being plenty of diverse gigs.

After leaving my full time duties in August last year, I was sad to no longer meet different people and play different music nearly every weekend but that did not mean that I was no longer part of the Diamond Dust Crew.

Throughout 2017 I continued to work alongside Martin at Wedding functions, birthday parties and (my favourite) works do’s, and the best part of it all was the fact I never got bored during any of the gigs last year.

If I was to pick my favourite gig of 2017, without doubt it would be the Joe’s Ice Cream works do. It was at the Liberty Stadium on Black Friday. Nearly every branch in Wales including the factory workers turned up.

 The reason this was my favourite gig was down to the fact that the crowd was so energetic from beginning to end.  It was the only gig last year were all the Diamond Dust Crew were together to provide the best service possible.

I look forward to continuing working with Diamond Dust during 2018 and look forward to seeing you in a nearby gig.
