Well, as it goes, I'm not really a celebrator of New Years or any other special occasion for that matter. Needless to say, Amelia and I did not have anything planned to bring in the new year.
This morning, I got a call from Jovan and was asked to play in the Fancourt, Members Bar to welcome 2010, and I was more than stoked to do so.
I kicked off with a mellow mix from 19:30 till about 21:30 then picked it up a bit as some of the guests were looking for a slightly more upbeat vibe.
While we were waiting for more guests to arrive, Amelia and I had an awesome seafood pizza, prepared by the La Cantina Chefs, along with some really good coffee. If you get the opportunity to visit Fancourt and enjoy seafood, I'd highly recommend you have one of their seafood pizzas, if you don't like seafood, you can't go wrong with the coffee.
The crowd streamed in from about 22:40 and it was pumping through till 23:50 when I called last rounds for 2009. At ten seconds to midnight, we started the countdown and welcomed in the new year. One of the guests lead us, in singing Auld Lang Syne after which, I brought the pace down a bit, with some chilled dance tracks and good old classics. I gradually slowed things down from then and finished off my set at 02:00.
