What a fun night at Wellington’s Brentwood Hotel!  A nationwide conference was happening and the disco themed dance was a chance for them to blow off some steam and socialise with other people in the industry. Light the Fuse set up their illuminated disco dance floor, DJ Richard brought his 16″ mirrorball out of partial retirement and after dinner cranked up the Bose L1 sound system with a night of funky disco sounds. It was a great night and disco came back alive!

The following year, the same clients booked DJ Richard and The Brentwood again, but this time the theme was Country & Western. Some of those pictures are in here as well.

The Brentwood is very busy and popular because of its excellent value, single floor layout, convenient facilities and proximity to both the Wellington CBD and Wellington International Airport. It’s just a quick cab or bus ride to either.
