Fireman Tony Marsh celebrated his 40th in style with many close family and friends last Friday at The Marine Hotel in Whitstable, Kent.

Wife Maria had booked me only a couple of weeks ago for the gig at one of Whitstables most contemporary hotels in the Ballroom Suite, also booked for the evening were the “Roadrunner Duo”, who played a 60 minute acoustic set to start the evening entertainment at 8pm, but it was accomplished singer Maria that joined the duo to kick start the set with a polished version of Extremes “More Than Words” which she sung as a surprise to husband Tony and earned herself a huge round of applause in the process.

The suite itself at the hotel is a lovely room which also hosts weddings, it also benefited greatly from the uplighting we installed in green and blue. The disco and band also set up at the far end of the room rather than the pre configured position which was on the side wall opposite the bar, this enabled all tables to be together and gives a better sound distribution down the room rather than aiming it straight across at the bar, everything also looks a lot more symmetrical so if you are planning an event at this venue I would highly recommend that.

What’s also nice about the room is that there is an outside patio area directly accessable from the room itself which is great for a warm evening, which is ideal for a warm evening and you can smell the fish and chips circulating the town from there too. For DJ’s visiting this venue the access is very straight forward, park up right by the door then its literally a couple of steps and straight into the room, couldn’t be easier really. There is no sound limiter however the use of haze is prohibited unfortunately.

The disco was a combination of Latest Charts and Party Classics to cater for the mixed range of guests and the set from 9-12 went down a storm on the seafront with everyone on a high at the end following the penultimate song “Sweet Child Of Mine” and the last song “Never Forget”. Congrats to Tony on the big four zero, tomorrow night we are at Chilston Park for Jayne and Martin’s wedding followed by Lisa and Nick on Sunday at Turkey Mill as the last big weekend of the wedding season gets underway.
