Glynn Tee - Professional DJCertificate of Excellence 2019
Southport, Sefton, Merseyside(38 Reviews)
I am a National award winning DJ, TV & radio presenter and Master of Ceremonies based in Southport primarily covering Cheshire, Cumbria, The Fylde Coast, Lancashire, Merseyside, North Wales, Staffordshire, The West Midlands and Yorkshire, incorporating major towns and cities across the North West of England including Blackpool, Liverpool, Manchester, Preston and Wigan.
In December 2018, I was awarded a Bark 'Certificate of Excellence' for my dedicated and professional service.
During my twenty-two years as a DJ, starting as a 16 year old in 1997, I have covered events across the United Kingdom, both as a mobile DJ and as a club DJ, hosting many Corporate Events for large name companies and organisations including Argos, Budweiser, Matalan, the National Association of Head Teachers, Unison and World Cheerleading Coalition (ICC Ltd) along with many schools for Proms, Leavers' Events and Teachers' Parties.
I have experience across the board as a DJ and host. I spent my first six years as a Party Bar/Club DJ working in north Wales, Liverpool, London, Manchester and Wrexham before a change of emphasis on my career led me into a role as Entertainment Manager at a holiday camp - a position I filled for three years from 2003-2005. In 2005, I returned to club work in north Wales after being head-hunted by a bar for their relaunch bringing me in to host Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights which included working alongside local bands for Indie nights and hosting karaoke on Thursdays and Sundays respectively.
With the introduction of the longer hours, in line with the UK drinking licences, with the club extending from 2am to 4am I decided that it was time to move into mobile DJ work in 2008.
I have worked as a full time mobile DJ for eleven years covering Weddings, Birthdays, Anniversaries and many other special occasions, whilst obtaining qualifications in sound engineering, radio and television presenting and event planning. I still cover the occasional nightclub with guest spots.
As you can see, I have an established background in the entertainment business. With my background including event management, local radio and television, working in all types of venues from nightclubs and holiday camps to shopping centres and events arenas and being a DJ and host at all types of events from Weddings and major Corporate Events to School Proms and Race Nights.
With my experience, working across the UK, I have the brilliant ability to judge the right style of music and create a great atmosphere by combining all genres of music with an outstanding professional microphone technique, which ensures my work is of the finest quality around and I continue receive outstanding reviews and repeat work from previous clients.
Through my work and training for radio, television and outside broadcasting, I am a very confident public speaker so you can be assured that you are getting the very best when it comes to any important announcement.
Having built a music collection covering all genres, with thousands upon thousands of songs, from the 1940s right up to the current chart and forthcoming releases, I like to think I always have something for everyone at your event.
I have worked in all types of environments from large scale night clubs and corporate events to holiday camps and children's parties and pride myself on being able to choose music for all different occasions and situations as well as taking on board your tastes in music.
My DJ career started in 1997 working as a trainee at a north Wales night club before establishing myself as a resident within a month.
Having worked at major nightclubs, in management and in the media, I have established myself as a leading mobile DJ in Southport and the North West and ensures that I use top of the range equipment for both sound and light at all events to give your occasion the WOW-factor.
From high quality sound to controlled lighting and spot-lighting for your first dance - I offer a service than cannot be rivalled for quality and professionalism.
I have hosted Weddings, Corporate Events and special occasions at many established venues including Southport Floral Hall, Blackpool's Grand Theatre, The Vincent Hotel, Royal Birkdale Golf Club, Meols Hall, Nottingham's CarPoint Arena, West Tower, The Royal Clifton Hotel and Spa, Ramada Plaza (Southport) and Hurlston Hall (Scarisbrick).
I have covered many large scale events including Sportsman's Dinners and Award Ceremonies working alongside star names including the late Bernard Manning and Howard Kendal and Everton FC legends Graeme Sharp and Kevin Radcliffe.
These events include World Cheer Coalition (ICC) Northern Cheer and Dance Championships, The National Association of Head Teachers' Annual Dinner and Dance since 2015, WorldNET - Europe's largest football supporters' tournament - for five years since 2013 and 'Le Classique de Danse' Awards for sequence and ballroom dancing at Southport Theatre and Floral Hall, for which I have been highly commended by organiser David Bullen.
I have also worked alongside headlining singers and bands including The Informers, Tommy Barron and Pretty Girl Rock along with numerous official tribute acts to artistes such as Bruno Mars, Olly Murs, Take That, Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue and Tom Jones.
For charity, I have represented Rock FM as part of their Cash For Kids charity campaign by hosting a 12-hour marathon DJ session in 2013 and, in all, my charity work at events has seen me help to raise in excess of £50,000 for local and national good causes including Clic Sargent, Queenscourt Hospice, Cancer Research, Zoe's Place, MacMillan Cancer and Liverpool Royal Hospital.
My equipment is fully PAT Tested and I have Public Liability Insurance of up to £10million.
Glynn Tee - Professional DJ
What’s the secret to keeping a party dancing all night long?
Ensuring you are playing the right music to the crowd that are there. Giving a wide mix of music means that everyone will get something that they like during the event.
A lot of people insist on a playlist. Whilst it sounds great, you really should trust your DJ before booking. A playlist can be a killer to your night as it leaves your DJ with their hands tied rather than using their ability to entertain your crowd.
How would you describe your ‘style’?
It depends on the event. I host corporate events and weddings where I am required to be very formal and I also host school discos where I need to be able to speak to children on their level.
There are some events to require my to work in an outlandish way with games and others that require a more reserved style.
My style will vary depending on the nature of the event and this is discussed in the planning as well as judged on the night.
What do you love most about your job?
I love being able to get people up and dancing, enjoying their event.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I started as a 16 year old in 1997. I kind of fell into the industry rather than having a career path planned in it! I'd originally set out to study computer science and engineering in university but the love of music and being able to please large crowds plus the recognition of my ability with a Welsh National Music Award in 2000 drew me into the industry.
Why should our clients choose you?
You are getting a DJ dedicated to the job. I love music and I love to make sure people are entertained. Couple this with my qualifications in sound engineering and event planning and my experience as a holiday camp entertainment manager, radio and TV presenter you know you are getting an all round DJ who excels across the industry.
