My first booking of 2013 was on New Year’s Day for a dinner dance at the beautiful Seamill Hydro Hotel in West Kilbride. This is the first time I’ve been to this hotel – or to West Kilbride for that matter – and I must say I was very impressed, both by the lovely setting, and the friendly helpful staff.
The Seamill Hydro is set in a stunning location – it was dark when I got there, so it wasn’t until I looked out of my window the next morning at magnificent views over the Firth of Clyde that I realised it is right on the seafront.
There were a lot of families staying at the hotel over New Year, and it was obvious the hotel catered for them very well, with a fun kids’ club, and even an old-fashioned Carousel outside in the gardens. Not to mention all the great leisure complex facilities for the mums and dads!
I was performing alongside the fantastic DJ ‘Cheeky D’ of Cheeky Entertainment. A true professional, he played all the right songs, and did a great job in getting the crowd up to party on the dancefloor.
All in all, it was a great start to the New Year. It was quite a mixed crowd in terms of age-range, so I sang a mixture of modern pop songs and older classics, to try and include something for everyone.
Here’s one of the songs I performed on the night; the Nat King Cole standard ‘Let there be love’
