On Saturday 16th February I was at the Kings Oak Hotel in High Beach (Waltham Abbey) for Alan and Kerri’s engagement party.

I’ve not been to the Kings Oak Hotel before but was pleasantly surprised at how nice and modern it looked inside and you can see for yourself from the picture above. There are two function suits there. A smaller one at the front and a bigger one at the back. I was in The Kings Room towards the back of the building which holds 120 seated or 200 standing.

As this was a slightly later start time then usual, I arrived at the venue at around 7pm to start setting up ready for an 8pm start.

Alan and Kerri had sent me a playlist of about 50 tracks which they wanted me to play. Some of them were 90’s tunes, things like Chaka Demus and Aswad with some 80’s groove tunes thrown in like Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King and Earth, Wind and Fire. Most of the tunes they had chosen where perfect for me to play at the start of the night while people where arriving.

Requests made:

  • Swedish House Mafia – Don’t You Worry Child
  • Bruno Mars – Locked Out Of Heaven
  • Whitney Houston – I Wanna Dance With Somebody
  • The B-52’s – Love Shack
  • + many more!
