Last week, at reasonably short notice, I ended up DJing for the Midsummer Masquerade at the Royal Victoria Hotel (Holiday Inn) in Sheffield, to entertain the guests after a three course meal accompanied by performances of burlesque (Pansy Cheung and Nenedhel Absynthium), dance (Hype Dance), and sideshow (Preacher Muad'dib), followed by a performance by The Memepunks.

Music before and in between the acts was mostly chosen from Ed Alleyne-Johnson's violin pieces. Once The Memepunks had got everyone on their feet, I followed on for the rest of the night with the requested mix of eighties tunes ...
