The Biggest Cheesiest Party of the Year turned out to be not as big as was expected for the busiest Saturday of the year but for those who did attend they were treated to an extravaganza of Cheesy Music and an even cheesier light show.
From the moment the powerful speakers powered up the DCR DeeJays went into overdrive with the sound and light techs from Powerhouse ensuring every aspect of the BFPA Live was enjoyed by the audience
DCR DeeJays Son Of Rock- Liam, R & B -Rupert, Whatever He Likes- Luke, North Face- Andrew, Whatever Rocks Your Boat – RockChick Trish and BFPA Steven Cook started off the night with short sets.
The first of the nights special guest was certainly up for it, after entertaining a full to capacity Gathering Ceilidh tent audience at the stadium in the afternoon
Gregor “Gman” James put down his AXE and hit the decks of steel with an impressive set which included many Cheesie favourites much to the delight of the audience including the Kilted Bags of Rock band members who when joined by the ladies from the marketing stand, gave the rest of the audience well received cheesie dance routines.
As the time grew near for the TBPA crew to take over the second special guest of the evening local songster Zuni took to the stage for her first would you believe live performance in Dunoon this prior to a forthcoming acoustic set to be broadcast on DCR97.4 FM .
The audience were treated to an incredible set which included covers of the Smiths and The Doors a fitting preview to a future Star.
The climax of the evening and what every one was there for was for the very first time ever The Big Fat Party Anthems Live with Big Tommy,
Tonight was the 200th Anniversary of TBFPA which had been celebrated earlier on dozens of Community Radio Stations throughout the UK and Europe and was to be broadcast again across the world Live from the Dunoon Community Radio studios after the Queens Hall Event from 2.00am through to 8.00am .
Supporting Big Tommy we had Disco Stu. Steven Cook , Rab C, Jimmy and Borat.
All Genre of music interlaced with enough Cheese , Old Skool and Classic Disco all mashed in with all the favourite BFPA Jingles idents all performed Live as DeeJay Davie would say A Stormin’ Asskicking Nite!
