Marquee Magic

Maeve and Michael were married last Saturday in Kilkenny. It was a lovely ceremony and a fabulous day. Everything was perfect.

As part of the occasion, they asked me to DJ for them after the band. I graciously accepted and proudly did my best to give it ‘a bit of wellie’.

Five hours, 61 songs, endless beers and non-stop dancing, shouting, waving of body parts later the celebration ended.

I must admit that when I woke up and looked at the set list on Sunday there were a few scenes missing. Did I really play THAT song? I didn’t even know that I had THIS song! But, most importantly, everyone had a great time and partied like it was 1999 (again).

So, underneath the giant disco ball, here is what I played and what I wanted to play and what I thought about playing. I suppose you could call this list the (Extended Mix) of Saturday night’s set.

A huge thanks to M & M for asking me to play and a giant shout-out to all the peeps who made the night so memorable.

Dance, dance, dance…
