One Night in Venice
We flew out from Luton to Naples in the wee small hours on 1st October. Suitcases were overflowing with masks, feathers, sequins and period costumes for a ‘masked ball’ themed event for Napp in the Hilton Stucky Molino Hotel.
We arrived in glorious sunshine and headed from the airport, via car and gondola, to the hotel. We were lucky enough to spend a few hours on the hotel roof soaking up the sun and lazing in the pool before our sound check.
We travelled with DJ Justin Charles who now works alongside us at some gigs mixing live in our MADHEN set. We were due to perform for an hour as our Scissor Sisters Tribute Band Scizzor Sisterz followed by another hour of So 80′s. We managed to convince the organisers to let us perform our MADHEN set with Justin, which went down a storm!
The crowd had been in conferences for a few days and it was our chance to entertain them that evening decked in our finest Venetian costumes!
It was up early again the next day after only a few hours sleep to fly back to Luton to perform later that evening for a wedding party in Stansted!
All good fun but exhausting!
