Happy Birthday Mark

Mark's 40th birthday with the Retro Roadshow
Yet another fun night out with the Retro Roadshow.

This setup seems to be going out more often than my modern equipment lately!

Tonight – Mark’s 50th birthday bash at the GER Sports & Social Club in March….and what a night!

Mark booked me from a recommendation from a friend, who’s 50th birthday I worked at a year ago to the day (she’s also booked me for her wedding next September!).

The order of the evening was well and truly 80s music – an era which can be difficult (everyone remembers 80s music with rose tinted glasses), but also one which I absolutely love, with some absolute classics making an appearance.

The playlist I hear you ask?

OK – I’ll share. Most of the music played during the evening was requested by Mark and his guests, and in places it appears to chop and change a little bit. That happens sometimes (just seeing the playlist doesn’t give a true reflection on how a night like this worked). The list below is what I was sent from Mark to be played during the evening.
