Partying with the troops!

12th Generation Party Band were proud to perform for the 9th Regiment Army Air Corp this weekend! Many of these guys were freshly back from Afghanistan, and definitely deserved a great party!

The theme for the night was a Masquerade Ball, and the revellers were treated to a variety of entertainment before 12th Generation Party Band took over for the night shift. Starting off with a wonderful slot from the Regiment’s brass band, the Officers were then treated to Ballroom Dancing lessons!

Thoroughly warmed up and with a wonderful selection of food and drinks polished off, 12th Generation kicked off with an unusually late first set, not going on until around 11pm. The first set included a great mix of songs, here it is:

1. Let Me Entertain You

2. Soul Man

3. Crazy Little Thing

4. We Are Family

5. Valerie

6. Beatles Medley

7. I Feel Good

8. September

9. Superstition

10. Lady Marmalade

11. Call Me Maybe

12. Mr Brightside

And from all those different songs, classic Soul and Motown, The Beatles, Indie Rock and Pop, guess which one went down the best with over 150 of Britain’s finest soldiers? You’ve guessed it… Call Me Maybe from Pop Princess Carly Rae Jepsen!!

We went on for set 2 well after midnight, starting off with Cee Lo Green’s classic Forget You, always guaranteed to fill a dance-floor. The second set included:

1. Forget You

2. Rock With You

3. Wanna Dance With Somebody

4. Blame It On The Boogie

5. Brown Eyed Girl

6. I Wish

7. Funky Music

8. Moves Like Jagger

9. Sweet Home Alabama

10. Higher and Higher

11. Don’t Stop Believing

12. Sex On Fire

Hard to pick a favourite from this set with so many top party tunes squeezed into 50 minutes of live music. Sex On Fire never fails to get everyone head-banging! Moves Like Jagger continues to be on of the most requested songs of 2012 and the Officer’s other halves were loving Whitney’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody.

After the live music our disco and LED lighting package, included as standard on all events, went on until 4am – the latest finish to date! Mr Brightside was requested no less than 3 times, despite us having already played it live… but when 4 soldiers freshly back from duty ask you for a song you don’t say no!!

All in all it was a fantastic night and our thanks goes out for all the guys and gals from the Regiment as well as the wonderful caterers who sorted us out with Champagne and Sausage sandwiches at 3am! Hope to see you all again soon.
