Y Viva Espana

It was off to Spain again this week with Vision Express

A very early start after the gig the night before in London.  We managed 2 hours sleep before driving to Luton to fly to Alicante

Vision Express hold an exhibition and awards ceremony every year and we were invited along to perform for their party

The venue was the beautiful Barcelo Asia Gardens Hotel & Spa with amazing views across the skyline of Benidorm

We flew out the day before and were invited that evening to join the guests at the world famous Benidorm Palace  for a night of entertainment!

It was such a great night.  We had a 6 course meal and 2 hours of entertainment including dancers, singers, acrobats, trampolinists and balancing acts!  Much better than we had anticipated.

The next day we managed a few hours lazing by the pool before soundcheck and a cheeky orange juice in the sun!

It was a long afternoon sound checking back at the conference room at the hotel before getting ourselves ready for the show.

We had actually been booked to perform our 80’s tribute show SO 80’S, but managed to convince the organiser to allow us to perform as MADHEN as he’d never seen us do this set!

We had kindly been given a table in the venue and another huge meal before we sloped off to get changed before our performance.

The crowd by this point were raring to get going on the dance floor.  DJ Adrian Hughes was there to start the party, he always plays a great set!

We performed to an energetic crowd who were such fun and made us feel like part of their party.  So many people came up to us afterwards and said how much fun they’d had.  It was lovely to speak to so many of them and they were over the moon with our performance and want us back next year!

Helen, Matthew & Mike even got dragged onto the dance floor after the gig and were last seen jumping up and down to Kate Perry’s ‘Firework’…they don’t get out much!!!
