Ever heard of a silent disco, well you’re not alone because I hadn’t either up until last night. The concept is simple, creative and it works! Last night I captured the action at the Jagermeister Bar Staff Incentive party at The Star Bar hotel in South Melbourne. The Kräuterlikör liqueur flowed freely amongst the patrons while donning headphones listening to one of three DJs pumping out a diverse genre of dance music. The silent disco has a certain verbal irony about it because, without headphones you can’t hear the music yet you still hear what everyone is saying…..or singing!
As said earlier, the concept works well because, by changing channels on the headset, you decide what you want to listen to and at your preferred volume. Everyone dances while listening to different tunes but for most of us when it comes to dance moves, it’s all the same movements on the floor. For those choosing to have a chat with friends, simply remove the headset and chat! Perfect!
The layout of the Star Bar hotel lends itself well for such an occasion with its various seating and dancing areas. The staff were kept busy behind the bar and Jagermeister promotional girls made sure patrons were well catered for while helping promote the brand. An ice sculpture added an interesting attraction as shot size drinks were be poured through the frozen art form giving receivers on the other end a chilly refreshment.
The pace of the night never let up seeing many a party goer continue on after till who knows when. With its new range of RTDs on the market and many having sampled its delectable flavours last night, I’m sure you’ll find your local drinking hole catering for the new Jagermeister range so why not broaden your preferences and try one!
Hi, last weekend I headed to the St. Kilda festival along the picturesque St. Kilda foreshore. This annual event hosts a number of bands and buskers along with various trade stands and other entertainment. The festival runs for a week with the final day seeing crowds of around half a million take part in the festivities. If you are yet to experience this event and are in the area or are looking for a great weekend away, why not check it out next year and don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 4,300 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 7 years to get that many views.
Every automotive event needs some finesse and the Geelong Revival was no exception thanks to the beautiful fashion contestants and promotion girls seen strolling around the Geelong Waterfront throughout the annual motoring festival. The highlight of the weekend for fashion aficionados and attendees was the Fashion on the Field parade held on Sunday in the SteamPacketGardens. Contestants dressed up in period style trends fitting the event’s early automotive themes found across the foreshore and were judged on their creations by a dedicated team of judges. With the competition tight, judges had their work cut out for them and selected winners in a variety of categories while one lucky lady walked away with the privilege of being titled the overall winner.
The promotion girls were looking stunning as usual and came from a variety of different supporters including the event’s own Just Geelong Revival girls and could be seen brightening up the scenery with their presence while showcasing their sponsor’s wares.
Why not come down and join in the festivities yourself next year and have fun dressing up accordingly? You’ll fit right in and may even walk away with the coveted grand prize!
See you all at the next event!
