Dave’s Rave

Daves 80s themed party with Cambridgeshire Disco and the Retro RoadshowAnother fun night out with the Retro Roadshow

I’m so glad I kept the old 80s lighting kit….it seems to be more popular these days than the modern day equipment (in my humble opinion…it looks better as well).

So….on to Dave’s 55th birthday bash. This time out I was at Brampton Park Golf Club (eek! stairs!!!!). Being a smaller than usual setup area, the full roadshow never made it up the stairs. What I was able to fit onto the stage looked the part though.

The night itself was brilliant. Dave had hired in a trio of dancers to help to get the party started by first performing a routine to a mash-up of 80s hits, followed by a session of teaching the assembled guests how to dance to those party favourites such as the Cha Cha Slide and the Macarena.

From there on, it was 80s and 90s hits for the duration and the dance floor never emptied…..happy DJ ­čÖé
