The Halloween Monster Ball was organised by the student reps, and was held at the newly opened Buck Henrys in Dun Laoghaire. The line-up included acts from DFEi, such as Screefy, Acoustic Bandits, Kevin Lynch, DJ Sam & me, Dave O’Reilly. The idea behind the event was to give students a chance to socialise while also showcasing some of the talent within DFEi.
As the event was planned shortly before Halloween, much planning and preparation was needed to make the event a success.
Thankfully class reps and students within the college got involved in promotion, flyer distribution and generally creating a buzz about the college for the event. First to perform on the night was local band Screefy which includes DFEi student Ger Thornton who performed tracks such as Hurt the Ones You Love & Wasted. Screefy will be featuring on the DFEi album FUSE, due for release in April 2013. Acoustic Bandits were next to take the stage, and they performed an array of cover versions to entertain all in attendance. Then DJ’s Sam, Kevin Lynch and I Dave O’Reilly took to the decks to round off the night.
