I went to this event a fair amount back in the day,my O/H even went a few times before she gave up for children.

The Good

They had spent a fair amount on production,so there were a lot of multi coloured lazers,strobes and LED screens.
The crowd was mainly oldies,this means that they are a bit like young D&B fans,they get there early,are friendly and really up for having a good time.When I got there at about 11.30 the dance floor was already packed,in full swing and the DJ was playing a lot of anthems from yesteryear (don't know who the DJ was).I thought I was in for a good time and then:

The Bad (for me)

Darren Pearce came on,I know he is a Peach resident and about 18 years ago he was everywhere: Sunny Side Up,Trinity,Freedom so I heard a lot of his sets.They are fairly full on Tech Breaks sets that I don't think have changed,you can almost predict the play order.SSU used to put him on at the end,I think this was in hope of clearing the venue and probably the best place for his sets.The only consolation is that many of the oldies did agree with me and the dance floor thinned out a bit.Graham Gold came on after this and I heard a bit of his set,the dancefloor was packed for this and in full swing again,but I had to leave early as I had something to do on Sunday.
Even if Peach does carry on I think it maybe my last if I have to suffer another Darren Pearce set.

I wasn't there. Judge Jules being on the line up put me off. By all accounts I made a wise decision because people are saying he was pretty shit.
Think Pique was the guy on at 11:30.


Ahhh Darren Pearce. I think he's great but even now he still splits the crowd.
He does suit earlier sets though. Putting him on late breaks up the mood. But not as bad as when Dave Lambert played House for the last set in the main room at one reunion.

I couldn't believe my bad luck with Peach this year

My mother-in-law was in intensive care earlier this year so I missed the Easter reunion but was delighted when they announced another event this year...

Then I came down with a cold last week, unusual for me, especially in summer, and decided I wouldn't enjoy it plus I'd probably pass it on to the Peachy family. Just as well, I'm still suffering and I think it would have been far worse if I'd gone...

Gutted to have missed both Peaches this year, really hope there's another one.

Pearce was the first DJ I was a groupie to. His set earlier this year at Peach was fucking shocking - music all over the show, no flow and some missed mixing. Was hoping it was deck set up but unfortunately it was just a bad set.
