Well done Shaun..... This was by far the absolute best event SOS at the Opera House yet.
We arrived early at around 8.30 and there were people up and dancing already, in fact I don't recall seeing an empty dance floor once all night long. By 10 the place was buzzing and people just seemed to continue pouring into the place until gone 1am. It was great to see people jostling for space on the dance floor. The huge amount of work and belief Shaun has poured into this began to bear fruit last night I truely believe. The dj's all played sets that went down brilliantly with the crowd - something for everyone, even at 4am when they were begging Moldie to play just one more track. DJ of the night for me in the main room was Hitsville Chalky - not only some fantastic tunes but such an entertainer on stage as well. Lovely to see a dj enjoying his music so passionately. (and also an expert at looking after abandoned handbags thanks )
I was really excited about the anniversary as for the first time a second room was opened featuring the Groove Junkies... now I know that modern is not everyones bag but John, Moldie and co showed me last night just how much it is mine. I danced so much my feet and legs hurt today and I am still buzzing from the electric atmosphere they created. Every time a new tune came on, even more hairs stood up on the back of my neck. Fantastic doesn't even come close to scratching the surface for me.... absolute class in my opinion. Just a shame that not everyone realised they were there (even though it was clearly advertised). I'm now on countdown to May 16th.
John..... thanks for the CD... it went straight in the player on the way home and I can guarantee it won't be being changed for a long time. Helped me to relive parts of the night again this morning.
Well done again Shaun
