What to expect… and FAQs
You may have some questions… please see my FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) below.. but if I was to sum up what you should expect, I’d say..
..’a professional, friendly, fun and altogether brilliant DJ and mobile disco and light show service’
Just being honest (and modest.. obviously!)
I provide professional DJ and mobile disco services. This means whatever your event or venue, I can help you create a fantastic evening. I cover pretty much any celebration including:
Wedding Anniversary Celebrations
Black Tie events
Hen and Stag parties
Hen and stag parties
Residential care home events (memories are powerful)
I’ll not be shy and say ‘I’m popular’!
It’s best to book me as far in advance as you can. Obviously there are DJ hosted mobile disco parties all year round, but when you add on the corporate celebration season, summer wedding season and Christmas, it can all get very booked up. The peak seasons are generally around June to September (weddings) and then around Christmas.
It could be that I can attend an event with just a one or two week’s notice, but that’s rare. Book as early as you can to avoid disappointment.
If you have used me before and I know the venue, then you can simply book me over the phone or by email. I will confirm that I’m free for your date and time. I’ll then take a deposit and everything is set to go.
If you haven’t hired my DJ and mobile disco services before, then I’m happy to meet at your convenience and also to check the venue if I haven’t performed there before (I have been to many places around Surrey, Hampshire, West Sussex and Berkshire). Visiting the venue is a good idea to ensure my checklist of simple items is followed. This ensures that your event runs smoothly without any surprises.
I have a database with over 20,000 tracks. As you can imagine, that means I can cater to anyone’s taste. Music going back to the 50s and 60s, through the 70s, 80s, 90s, to music topping the current charts. Whatever your age group, or theme, I have it covered.
Everyone knows that if you have a selection of rooms and one of those is the ’80s room’, you will find MOST of the crowd in there. Given that awesome period of music innovation and absolute gems, you will find a few 80s hits at most weddings and birthday parties, especially those with middle aged guests. HOWEVER, there is a wealth of genres with absolutely brilliant tracks awaiting any dance crowd. I can play the latest chart music/club music, dance music, classic rock, country, oldies, big band, Motown, R & B, rap, disco, and hip-hop, and any other music that you desire.
As a professional DJ, it’s my job to understand the audience and the venue and can adapt rapidly and seamlessly to make your event really great. I’m not going to be playing all the same music at a 21st birthday party as I would at a 50th!
I also know that music can be very personal and very special and I’m happy to play any requests. I can work with a set playlist if you are a music genius yourself.
It is completely up to you what music I play, it is your event. I just love music! That’s my job.
I don’t have a fixed price for events.
No two events are the same. One event could involve a local disco hire in Guildford on my doorstep, and another could involve a long day for a wedding at a beautiful country estate near Winchester with four times as many guests.
The price I quote/charge will be accurately worked out based on how much time I need to spend to deliver your perfect event. It will also be determined by how far I need to travel and what range of equipment and lighting will be needed.
I’m very flexible for bookings and deposits. If it’s a small event, then a £50 deposit is all that is needed. If it’s a larger event then I may need 25% deposit which is non-refundable to secure your date. It is non-refundable because I am very busy and a cancelled event often means I’ve then lost other bookings that wanted me on that date (sorry!).
The outstanding balance needs to be paid fully up to a week before the actual event. Don’t worry, I’ll send a reminder in good time.
Payment can be made using Internet Banking (preferred) or cash.
I ALWAYS leave at least an hour to setup, sometimes longer depending on the venue. A large mansion room with challenging stairs will take longer than a marquee in the garden next to the driveway!
It’s all common sense really, and I’ll ensure I’m fully setup and ready to go before the start. If you need me to setup the day before, or the morning before an event in the evening, then I simply factor that into your quote. Anything goes.
With years of experience I can advise on how long you might need music at your event. Saying that, more often than not, folk just don’t want it to stop! Often the thing that draws the evening to a close is the restriction on the venue (sadly).
How long I play is totally up to you. DJ and disco events at weddings typically last around 4 hours, but I’m totally flexible on how long you want me. You simply pay for my time and I’ll tell you how much that will be in the quote. If you need me longer, then you just pay the agreed sum for extra time if needed. It’s all up front… no hidden extras 🙂
Yes, most certainly. I can provide a certificate on request (some venues need this).
My insurance covers public liability up to £5 million.
All I need at the venue is power. I provide everything else. Many venues have built in equipment which I can also use, but if you have a bare room, then I can turn that into a great DJ music event.
I bring the latest audio equipment and a great light show to your event to ensure your guest have a memorable time.
All equipment is PAT tested and I have full public liability insurance. Equipment includes:
Denon Prime 4 (does everything, it’s awesome!)
Main speakers FBT – huge base and large array of cone speakers
Lights include Chauvet effects/lazer
Martin lights (Martin Mania) and a wealth of other equipment
I provide more than one microphone including radio mic for perfect wedding speeches or party announcements!
