After many many months of hard work and £2million investment, the Buttermarket main arena was finally opened last Friday evening. (21/09/2012)
Boasting a full line up of artists from the last 20 years or so, including Britains Got Talent finalists "The Loveable Rogues", along with Europe's largest laser and light show, all hosted by the very talented Vicky Jackson, the club was all set for a fabulous night of entertainment.
The VIP guests started arriving around 6:30pm for the champagne reception and by 7:00pm the VIP mezzanine floor, looking stunning with tasteful decor, massive chandelier and lovely lighting streaming in through beautifully restored high sash windows, was buzzing with guests, all voicing their approval of the clubs new look.
The ground floor dance and club area soon filled in anticipation of the nights entertainment which was kicked off with the awesome laser and light show which boasts Europe's largest laser. And what show it was. Gasps, oohs, aah's and WOW's were all anybody seemed to say for the 10 minutes that the lighting engineering guys were let loose with their new toys.
Once everyone had calmed down and caught their breath, they were then treated to the remarkable talents Vicky Jackson who was to host the evening in fantastic style.
Opening the evening with some Lady GaGa and Pink renditions, Vicky then went on to introduce the nights entertainment, starting with local talent "The Making" who got the ball rolling in style.
Vicky Jackson then introduced 80's sensation "5 Star" who were filling in for T'Pau's Carol Decker who was suffering from a sore throat and showed everyone that they are real star quality.
5 Star were followed by the duo of Peter Cox and Richard Drummie, better known as "Go West" who belted out their popular and well known hits with superb professionalism.
By now, the wonderful Vicky Jackson had the full house audience eating out of her hands and they were quite happy for her to sing a few extra songs whilst we waited for "The Loveable Rogues" who had been unavoidably delayed en-route.
The Loveable Rogues are a young multi talented group consisting of three fun loving lads who are establishing their rightful place within the music industry with their aim of creating a new style of music which isn't defined by a specific genre.
Tonight the guys wowed the audience with their own songs and covers including a witty rendition of The "Beatles" Help and got everybody in the mood for the takeover by the DJ's who would once again dazzle the audience with more of Europe's largest laser show until the early hours.
If tonight is any indication of what Martin and his team have in store for this the revamped club, then the future of entertainment in Shrewsbury is in very safe hands.
