UCD Hockey Ball 2018

I’m waiting to hit the decks at the UCD Hockey Ball 2018 in the Hilton Charlemont, Dublin 2.

Courtesy of Dublin Djs, I Dj at this event every year. The students are the elite of Ireland and abroad.

I’ll start when the students decide to eat their mains but with Amhrain Na bhfiann being sung joyfully, it’s looking unlikely.

I’m going to open up with ‘Havana’. I don’t want a mad scramble to the floor, instead I want the real dancers up first. There’s plenty of time for Wagon wheel 😄🎶.

Way too long since my last post. I must get back into this.

The came before the storm.

Later on….

Turned out to be a great night.

Lots of chart, some 90s cheese including wannabe, mambo no 5 and reach.

A small bit of 80s … you can call me Al…. is that 80s? ha

Inspector Norse went down well followed by camelphat…. ended up rushing the mix though and it didn’t blend well. Not one cared really but at the same time I knew.

Other songs that I played,

Rihanna ‘only girl in the world’

Avicci ‘wake me up’

Beyoncé ‘crazy in love’

Outcast ‘hey ya’

I had a request book with me for this particular gig. Students are not shy about asking for what they want and I get plenty of requests.i find the easiest thing to do is to get them to write it down. I generally make the effort to play it.

Two more gigs this weekend. The Clayton in Tyrellstown and one of the Function rooms in Croke park on Saturday. Better get some sleep. Early start in the morning with the kids. Charlie is 3 in March and Bodhi is 3 months old.

I’m listening to Rag and Bone mans album in the car lately. I’m keeping his tunes for myself.

Keep me in mine if you need a Dj for your event. I mainly do Weddings & Corporate events.
