Case Study — Great Gatsby Themed 50th Birthday at the Shard

Wanting to celebrate in style our client hosted their party at The Shangri-La atop The Shard.

With the aid of our great friend, the brilliant and beautiful saxophonist Chez Taylor, we arranged a spectacular evening of entertainment.

As guests arrived to the Li Suite on level 34, harpist Tori Handsley played a selection of beautiful pieces, setting a sophisticated tone.

We were thrilled to see that everybody had taken the evening’s theme into consideration with their outfits. There were feathers, fine frocks and glittering sequences wherever you turned.

Sitting down for dinner in the Ren Suite the show was kicked off by Femme Fabulous — a troupe of more breathtaking women who can command any stage you are not likely to meet.

The ultimate show stoppers, these girls have captivated audiences the world over with their choreographed shows.

Striding betweentables to a soundtrack of lively Gatsby swing they brought joy and no small amount of glamour to the room; a smile was on every face as their feathers whirled and twirled!

The girls set the stage for our leading Great Gatsby band: Redstone Collective. This good looking bunch of swing enthusiasts re-arrange moderns songs to fit a re-imagining of the roaring 1920s, perfect to act as vintage wedding band.

To elevate the celebration into an evening that no one would forget, Femme Fabulous and Redstone Collective joined forces for the final performance of the evening.

Mingling with the guests on the dance floor the room became a blur of sparkling brilliance. Everyone was on the floor, unable to resist the urge to jive the night away!
