I made a trip to Dundee last week to sing for a wedding reception at Discovery Point. This was my first time at this venue and I was very pleasantly surprised as it was a lovely place in a unique setting. Right on the waterfront, it was a beautiful sunny evening as I arrived to set up.
The staff were all very pleasant and helpful and everything was very well-organised. The reception was on the 1st floor in the conference room, with fantastic views out over the River Tay.
The bride had given me a great choice of requests, with lots of great 60s, 70s, and 80s classics – her song choice had me dancing away while I was preparing the set! She also was a bit of a James Bond fan so I added a few Bond theme songs in to the mix. It was a lovely night with friendly fun guests and lots of dancing. The bride and groom were truly gracious hosts and everything went very smoothly.
I never knew about RSS Discovery before, so it was very interesting learning about her rich history exploring the Antartic – and even more interesting to find out about all the ghosts that now inhabit her – Ed the security man regaled me with stories that gave me chills! I hope I get a chance to visit Discovery Point again soon and explore the ship.
