I've worked as a DJ since the early 90s and have worked in music, entertainment and theatre ever since.

In terms of what I do as a DJ, the short answer is 'whatever you want me to do'! It's kind of odd but with a lot of DJs out there that is actually really unusual - I'm sure we've all been at events, whatever they might be - functions, Weddings and parties - where the DJ seems to be a law unto themselves, plays whatever they like and pays no mind whatsoever to what the client or the guests actually want! If you came back the following week you may well find they'd be playing exactly the same music to a completely different crowd of people!

I think it's really important that the music for your function is as unique, well thought out and put together as the rest of your event. To that end I always suggest that you either give me some kind of an indication of your favourites together with what you know friends and family will like, or at the very least a list of say half a dozen 'must plays', half a dozen 'would like to hear' and also half a dozen 'absolutely do not plays'.

Either way it gives me a great snapshot of what you like which then helps fill out the rest of the evening's music, together with requests from you and your guests on the night.

As well as a DJ I can also source all kinds of other entertainment if you need it - anything from a table magician to a band or even a full cabaret show to make your function utterly unique!

Dave was the DJ for our wedding last year and was amazing. He played everything we wanted and we have had feedback that it was the best music at a wedding from our guests. Would recommend him to anyone for any event. He knows his music and is passionate about it.

Absolutely Fab DJ, couldn't recommend enough. I work for a venue where Dave has been plenty of times and its brilliant to find a DJ that doesn't think its their own party and actually cares what music you want to hear! 10/10 :)

I put on cabaret events and need a DJ that can not only fill the dance floor at the end of the night, but also handle the complicated tech support for the eclectic entertainers and variety artists we promote. Dave is my go to guy - a fab DJ and an unflappable stage manager.

Book this guy and the dancefloor will be full all night! He puts a lot of time and effort into to getting to know what clients want, and is just brilliant at what he does. A good DJ really makes an event, and quite simply, Dave Glenister is the best!

Dave was our wedding DJ last July and he was amazing! We are very into our music and Dave made sure our night was perfect. The dance floor was full all night and he made sure we got what we asked for (no cheesy requests)! Can't recommend him enough.

Dave was dj for my wedding in August 2015. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He well and truly made the wedding evening the best and most memorable night! It was effortless and immense fun. The dancefloor was full ALL evening and everyone commented that it was a fantastic night. Thank you SO much Dave for everything, you were amazing!

Dave ran a music quiz at my pub for a number of years and he did a great job. Running a decent pub quiz is a tricky thing to do but Dave managed it week in and week out, his music knowledge and collection are both extensive. I would highly recommend Dave for any music related event!

Dave did a fantastic job of DJing for my cousin's wedding. He listened to what they wanted, played a good variety of music within their tastes, kept everyone dancing, no stupid wedding party music, just good stuff that they would like. Which was a relief since I'd recommended him! Dave's music knowledge is limitless, he's a right proper DJ. Would deffo recommend him to any other cousins who are getting married, or birthdaying or whatevs.

Dave was the DJ for our wedding in 2014 and was brilliant. He created a fabulous atmosphere, everyone was dancing and he gauged the audience & mood perfectly to keep the dance floor full. It was exactly what we wanted.
He will be our first call for our next party

Dave deejayed at my 50th. Excellent service, very knowledgeable about music so he's much smarter than your average DJ.

Dave Glenister works so hard for and with his clients to make sure their event is the best possible. I have attended a few events where he has been DJ and everyone has a great time partying to tunes they enjoy due to hus homework before the event.

Dave Glenister Entertainment Q&A

Company Q&A

What’s the secret to keeping a party dancing all night long?

Most important thing of all is to do your homework - talk and listen to your clients when they're booking you - they know their likes and dislikes and they've known their guests, friends and family a lot longer than you so will know what they like too! Every party is and should be unique and special and the music is a massive part of that.
Also keep an eye on people - not just the dancefloor but the bar, outside, other rooms etc as well - this will give you great clues as to what people are liking and doing, what's working, what's not.
It sounds really obvious but - TAKE REQUESTS! Some DJs seem to ignore them and go with their own 'standard' playlists, fatal! As well as the relationship you've built with the clients you only have a short time to build a rapport with everyone else so make the most of the opportunity.

How would you describe your ‘style’?

I guess I do tend to focus on the music without too much talking except where it's essential. Clients and guests generally tell me they prefer this approach as a lot of people tend to find a lot of chatter distracting and even irritating. I firmly believe that the tunes should be front and centre, to that end I use the best quality sound equipment and carry a vast selection to choose from.

What do you love most about your job?

I've always loved music from an early age, it triggers so many awesome memories and feelings. The thing I love most is helping people to bring out their own love of music and what's special to them and their guests. It makes the event for them and means that every day in the 'DJ office' is completely different to the last - every day or night is unique!

Why should our clients choose you?

I tend to get most of my DJ work by word of mouth - either friends, venues or previous clients pass on my details. Often by by the time we get to have a chat, other people have done the hard work for me! I love that first chat with a client - whether it's a bride and groom, someone planning a special party or someone organising a corporate function - it's great when people realise that they're talking to someone who genuinely loves music and is drawing out their love of music too to make the party uniquely 'theirs' for the night.
Whoever you choose to provide the music at your party, do try and have a good chat with them and make sure you click and can be completely confident that they'll do exactly what you want on the night.
