What a Weekend – 26th, 27th and 28th April!

May 11, 2013

Wow! – the spring wedding season is fully upon us, beginning with an action packed weekend of weddings Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  With the weather finally changing for the better and the sun actually showing it’s face meant that Great Hallingbury Manor was looking superb for the happy couples  – Andy & Jill, Daniel & Danielle and Sha & Kristina.  The evening receptions were absolutely fantastic with packed dancefloors each evening – what was nice was that all three nights had a much varied taste in music, so many tracks were dusted off for an airing with some great tunes not played for a while encouraging slick moves on the dancefloor!  Rock, Indie, Funky House, Disco, Ska, R’n’B, Garage, Soul & Motown and some classic Old Skool all featured through the 3 blinding receptions.

Kevin & Shelley 17th March 2013

April 13, 2013

Kevin & Shelley had a fantastic night at Woolston Manor in Chigwell.  The venue looked fantastic, especially with the uplighting to help create perfect ambiance.  They gave us a great list of songs to be blended into the evenings music which was perfect for everyone’s taste.  The Israeli dancing section chosen by the happy couple was brilliant and how Kev didn’t end up with a serious injury after being thrown up in the air by a tablecloth is a mystery!  A lovely couple and it was a real pleasure to DJ for them! – check out their kind review on the reviews page!

Simon & Kath 24th Feb

February 28, 2013

Time flies when you’re busy doesn’t it! After a December full of Christmas parties and weddings, and also the fact the spring wedding season is here, the time is definitely right to post an update on the site. Another good reason for the update is to report on the amazing wedding of Simon and Kath last weekend at Great Hallingbury Manor.

Another packed dancefloor!

Another packed dancefloor!

Kath & Simons family and friends kept the floor packed all night and Kath herself hardly left the dancefloor! Some fabulous live music and entertainment was also provided by Michael, Georgia and Matt – otherwise known as ‘Cupids Wish’ – check out their website http://www.cupidswish.co.uk
Highlight for us was the last 15 minutes of the set when the buffet tables were bouncing off the floor in time to the dancing!
The party season is upon us!

Billy & Becky 29th September

October 3, 2012

The 29th September saw the wedding of Billy & Becky at Great Hallingbury Manor and a great party in the evening!

Always a good sign if the dancefloor is still packed at midnight!

Guests were up dancing from the off, and the dancefloor was packed at midnight – always leave the guests on a high and wanting more!  Nice to play some old skool house records as well as some party classics that had the Manor floor bouncing.

A lovely night for a lovely couple! – check out their review on the reviews tab above!

Mitchell & Cassie 4th August 2012

August 24, 2012

Mitchell and Cassie held a fantastic reception in the family garden in old Harlow, with a magnificent marquee complete with fab LED dancefloor!, throw in a photobooth, full bar and caterers for the complete wedding package!  As well as the Floorfillers performing there was a great live band – “Sounds of Weller” providing some great Ska, 2-Tone and (stating the obvious!) Weller/The Jam tracks.  Some great tracks were requested and for 2 nights in a row – ‘Candy’ by Cameo was asked for – see the pic below for the desired effect!  Again some great garage tracks and the party floor fillers thrown in for good measure.  Lucky all the neighbours were there as the party was meant to finish at 1am but as the dancefloor was still rammed we carried on till 2am – what a night!

There was no way we were going to turn off the music at 1am with this many people on the dancefloor!

Bradley & Laura 3rd August 2012

August 24, 2012

What a crowd at the wedding reception of Bradley & Laura at Great Hallingbury Manor!  Requests came in all night for some absolute classics that we haven’t played for some time.  Very pleasing to be able to play these tunes and see the dance floor packed.  The 90’s house classics, old skool garage, modern hits, 80’s pop and classic party floor fillers had the dancefloor heaving all night.  Highlights included playing ‘Candy’ by Cameo – not played for a long time but dusted off and didn’t disappoint! and Kings of Leon at the very end had the whole place shaking at the foundations!  A lovely couple to DJ for and a very kind review left on the reviews page!  The Retro Sweet Table was well utilised too and not much was left by the end!

I think the sugar from the Retro Sweet Table may have helped keep the energy levels high!

Tune In – Floorfiller Of The Week

Finally time for an update on this section – LMFAO have been sitting here for far too long!  Seeing as it’s a lesser known tune but always goes down a storm when played, this week the tune is going to be ‘Candy’ by Cameo.  Sometimes overshadowed by the more well known ‘Word Up’, ‘Candy’ made an appearance 2 nights in a row recently and the dancefloor was packed on both occasions, so click on the link below and enjoy!

Dave & Carol’s Wedding 21st July

August 4, 2012

An evening reception with a difference at Great Hallingbury Manor on 21st July as we provided children’s entertainment for an hour before the evening reception started.  Taking place in one of the smaller function rooms there, we kept the kids busy with games, dancing and entertainment whilst the parents had a breather and a chance to visit the bar and relax for an hour!  A really useful extra for your wedding reception if you are expecting lots of families and can cater for children of all ages.  The children lasted well onto later in the night and graced the dancefloor with some moves – I’m sure the bags of sweets helped with the energy levels!  Then it was the parents turn to fill the dancefloor – first to the 11 piece(yes 11!) soul band then to their favorite tunes from us.  Great night and a great review from Carol – check it out on the reviews page!

Cate’s 40th Birthday- 80’s Party Night

June 25, 2012

Saturday 23rd June saw Cate celebrate her birthday in style with an 80’s party night at Great Hallingbury Manor. Everyone made a great effort with their outfits – Scott looked great as Adam Ant with full make up applied! , the three Ninja Turtles were kicking butt on the dancefloor, Mr T drank a lot of drinks other than Milk, Maverick and Goose graced the dancefloor and the Rude Boys skanked away.  ‘The Retro Sweet Table’ kept sugar levels up high and people on the dancefloor.  Of course the party girl herself looked brilliant and was getting down on the floor and ‘getting physical’ as Olivia Newton John.  Absolutely loved DJ’ing a memorable night…although I need to have words with Cher for abusing Scooby Doo when he made an appearance on the dancefloor!
