Ahoy there! Ever thought of having a party on a Barge? Fun for everyone, adds a unique dimension to your gathering!

Party on a Barge at Maldon Quay

Barge-Hydrogen-MaldonA daughter organised a suprise 50th for her dad, and I was their DJ for the evening. Access was tight with my equipment, the stairs were a little steep! Fortunately a guest helped me out, and after some huffing n puffing, we were good to go!

 

 

Party-on-a-BargeSome guests dressed as pirates, and the whole thing was great fun. Kids absolutely loved it! They had all their pirate outfits and plastic swords and bandannas, as you can imagine had a whale of a time.
The barge was called ‘Hydrogen’ and moored at Maldon Quay. They have a website and can cater for Christmas parties, birthdays, etc. Next time I’ll just take my laptop and 1 speaker, as I was slightly ‘over equipped’ for this function and worried my speakers might sink the barge 🙂 I was also concerned that if I played ‘Jingo’ or ‘Ain’t No Stoppin’ us Now’ we might end up severly listing!
Two records I had to play, were of course ‘De Barge – Rhythm of the Night’ and ‘Hues Corporation – Don’t Rock the Boat’ 🙂
