27/2/16 – Super Sweet 16th for Lauren at The Dawson Centre, Falkirk. – This was a 16th but with a twist, There was the usual request for some chart etc. but by and large the youngsters were set on old school cheese from the Vengaboys and even DJ Casper. No dramas, the kids were all on great form and it reminded me how much fun doing teen parties can be. Happy Birthday Lauren, I’m glad you had a great night.
20/2/16 – Evening reception at Linlithgow Burgh Halls. – Ruth and Stephen got married a few weeks back infront of close friends and family and this was the big event to celebrate with their extended group of friends. The room was jam packed with no room to sit, which was not a problem as the dance floor was jumping from the first dance. The couple wanted their guests to have a big input in their evening so they were heavily encouraged to put in requests and most were absolute crackers. Lot’s of disco, lots of chart and a good few I hadn’t heard in a long time made for a brilliant evening. Congratulations Mr and Mrs Currie!
13/2/16 – Lovely Wedding of Kerry and Thomas Barton at Melville Castle! – It was a cosy Wedding at the castle with the kids firmly the centre of attention for the start of the evening. The requests were really eclectic and suited our bride and grooms tastes perfectly. Big send off at the end of the night came via Loch Lomond and then a song for their beloved football team. The couple opted to have the marquee moodlit which just transformed it from fabulous to stunning. Another great 5 Star Discos event.

11/2/16 – Great night at Arta for Laura and Gavins Wedding! – This evening had it all. From the usual line dances that gets everyone up to a Northern Soul dance off between 2 of the grooms men, there was no dull moments. The first dance even had a little surprise for Gavin, set up as ‘True Love’ by Pink, Laura contacted me a few days before to ask if I could sneakily introduce the couple up then place a short chorus of ‘Do The Bartman!’ which is a long running family joke about Gavin. She assured me Gavin would see the funny side of it and when the moment came he was in stitches, as were the guests. It’s little touches like this that makes Weddings memorable for all the guests. All the best for your future together guys and enjoy Rome!
6/2/16 – Congratulations to Caitlin and Taylor on their engagement! – Been a wee while since I’ve been to Lochgelly. Its always nice to travel to that part of the country as the wee village parties can literally be that…the whole village turns up! Taylor popped the question on Christmas Day and the couple are due to get married next year at The Parsonage which is a lovely venue belonging to the Aurora group. Party hits were dropped throughout the night with a nice side of soul which is Taylors favourite genre culminating in a big Loch Lomond send off at the end for the happy couple. All the best guys a have fun planning the big day!
