What a Fantastic 80's Party @ Gianpula (Malta) ! - Sat 22 August 2015. feat DJ Alex Grech and Guest DJ Alberto Palmieri
Darren Douglas has been a massive fan of Marc Almond (famous as a member of Soft Cell and the singer of the song Tainted Love) ever since the 80s.
Darren was confined to a wheelchair after an accident some years ago and couldn't attend the concert Marc was giving at Gianpula on Tuesday night. However, the British singer visited the Maltese fan at home instead!
The Reflex 80's 10th Anniversary Party was massive once again. Reflex Promotions would like to thank the fantastic crowd and fans, sponsors, the Reflex Team, Gianpula Staff and Reflex (Shake) Dancers. You may wish to leave your comments by clicking here.
