As the epic floor show commenced in Tabu, the Waldorf was filling to capacity!Beverley Elliott sang “Sweet Dreams”, there was an actors versus agents lip sync battle and a 80’s drag medley. Turner was feted as the longest-serving client by Richard Lucas and Eric Edwards and a sizable donation to PAL Vancouver was made.
The Commodore was a cavern at one third of capacity but the hardy few had a wonderful time dancing in the open space and eating the extra food! It was the day of the 30 Anniversary Party, we were on Day 3 of Stormageddon and the professional weather folks were talking up that we’d be in for a doozy of rain and high winds.
As the clock counted down to opening, the party committee worked feverishly to prepare the Waldorf for the would-be revelers… This two-floor, three room extravaganza had been poised, through nine months of planning, to be THE biggest, most ambitious Lucas party ever. One client had to cancel because he was asked by his news station to anchor a special “storm broadcast”. The early arrivals were hardy souls who were determined to party, whatever the weather.
The festivities were hosted by our hilarious Devon Alexander.
Following the big show, the three rooms offered a variety of entertainment: Line 49 covered all the hits of the 80’s, some chilled out in the Tiki Bar while others danced hard in Hideaway.
He did a spectacular medley and brought the down the house!
