It’s been a busy past week for Madhen, with 3 fantastic events that are definitely worth writing about. We started the week at the World Travel Market in London, then partied at Twickenham at the Rugby World Cup wrap party. We finished the week in Aberdeen, and a Bollywood themed charity event, raising £100,000. We’re so lucky to take part and contribute to all these fantastic events, and the parties spoke for themselves!
World Travel Market – Sky Garden, London
Over the past few years our corporate events bookings have taken us to many industries; Finance, Pharmaceutical, Auto, Oil, Health, to name but a few. One of our most successful relationships has been within the Travel and Tourism industry.
From the 2-5th Nov the World Travel Market hits London, and with the chance for Madhen to party with some old friends as well as make many new ones! Our 1st event at the Sky Garden was courtesy of Virgin Holidays, who booked us for this as we came off stage at their 30th Birthday Festival event in September. This blog tells more about this event.
Hard Rock Cafe, London. World Travel Market – Hard Rock Cafe, London.
Our second event this week as part of this year’s a World Travel Market (WTM) took us to The Hard Rock Cafe. The event was jointly sponsored by the Hard Rock Cafe and the Big Bus Company, who are celebrating 25 years of business in 2015.
It’s inspiring to play surrounded by instruments and memorabilia from so many iconic rock ‘n’ roll heroes. The event was packed with guests from the WTM, and felt more like a great rock ‘n’ roll gig than a typical corporate event, and we relished every minute on stage.
We were delighted to be booked for a repeat performance at next year’s WTM event immediately after we got off stage, together with two new enquiries for events in the UK and Germany! Turning one performance into one or two future bookings is key to our ongoing success.
Twickenham – RFU Event.
A week after the final took place, the dust is beginning to settle on this year’s Rugby World Cup. The RFU together with the team from Eventology invited us to play at the Wrap party for some 800 guests – staff that helped make the Rugby World Cup such a great success (unfortunately it didn’t extend to the home nation’s performance!) As avid sport’s fans, performing at sporting events such as this always has a great vibe for us. We loved following the Rugby World Cup, and partying with the staff that made it all possible was great fun.
The event was held in the Live Room at Twickenham Stadium. Madhen Productions Ltd supplied PA, stage lighting and an LED video wall for this spectacular finale. We shared the stage with the fantastic guys from Rockaoke who really set the evening up with a great set. All in all, a brilliant way for the RFU to thank the many people who contributed to the RWC, and we loved being a part of it
VSA Bollywood Ball.
Straight from Twickenham to Heathrow airport for a flight up to Aberdeen – a city that is becoming more like a second home to Madhen! This time for the amazing VSA charity’s annual Ball.
This Bollywood themed event was hosted by comedian and chef Hardeep Singh Kholi, and raised an incredible £100,000. Thanks to Debbie and her team from the VSA as well as the staff from Ardoe House; one of Aberdeen’s finest hotels. Charity events such as these show how getting together and partying hard can raise an incredible amount of money for a great cause, and we’re proud to have been a part of it.
We received this fantastic feedback from Debbie:
“Just a quick note to say a massive thank you for Saturday, we are getting lots of great feedback from our guests saying best band they have heard. I am so pleased from the shortlist we had, the call was to book you guys. As soon as I heard your sound check I was like the cat that got the cream and just couldn’t wait to hear you in the evening. Just amazing!”
We’re looking forward to returning next November!
We’d like to think that performing at such a variety of venues, and for such different causes shows how versatile Madhen are as a party band. So, if you’re looking for a party band to make your event spectacular, and get everyone up on the dance floor, then please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you!
