“I’ve had the pleasure of working with JP Silver on numerous events and have not yet encountered anyone else who makes any dance floor happen. From stiff corporate functions to heaving nightclubs, JP has the gift of reading the crowd and the technical skill to beat mix, effect and keep the music interesting. His vast repertoire is also extremely versatile and suited for any genre."

"Professional in all ways, with a chilled vibe and great interaction with the party guests, DJ JP Silver rocked the house from start to finish. Music choice was spot on, with the perfect blend of planned playlist and requests, it was a rare pleasure to find a DJ that got it right and contributed to a super festive occasion. He has since been recommended to a number of connections, some of whom have used his services with similar success. Thanks JP, love your work!"

"We hired JP to do our wedding reception music in Applecross. He was very accommodating prior to the event and met with us to discuss our music preferences and tastes, so as to tailor his services to our special day. He was happy to accommodate specific requests to play or avoid particular songs (and he stuck to the agreement on the night) and had some great ideas for things we hadn’t considered. JP liaised directly with the venue in order to fit with our timings and set up his equipment unobtrusively. He created a fantastic atmosphere with the addition of various lights and really made the party happen even though faced with a diverse crowd of guests! throughout the whole process JP was really helpful, friendly and positive and really took the stress out of organising the party element of our day. We were so glad we could rely on him to deliver a fantastic evening and would highly recommend his services."
