Ian has been fantastic from start to finish of our wedding planning. He offers complete flexibility for planning your big day, ensuring it works with the couple’s ideas. Ian always replied promptly to all my email enquiries, and was able to accommodate last minute requests, and ensured our music playlists were honoured. His set up is stylish and his energetic approach kept the dance floor jumping well past midnight! I can’t recommend Ian enough! Thank you! More...

Q&A

I start by talking to you about the music you like and the songs that have particular significance. We also talk about any music or songs that you definitely don't want played.

We can also encourage your guests to get involved in putting forward their suggestions for the music to be included in the DJ set for the night.

The focus is on providing a broad range of music that will cater for everyone's tastes and encourage people to dance.

Playing the big hits that your friends and family know and love is key, but it’s also important to take your guests on a musical journey so you move between genre’s and styles in a structured way.

That’s one of the many skills I can offer as an experienced DJ to sequence and seamlessly mix the music to build and maintain the energy on the dance floor.

If I were to play weak or little known songs or songs people didn’t enjoy, your guests would quickly get bored and become disconnected from the music and the atmosphere would suffer.

Imagine playing pop, soul, R&B, motown, disco, R&B, motown, house and then rock. This just wouldn’t flow and people would get disgruntled at the constant change of music styles and tempo.

However if you switch it to playing a few songs of each genre in sequence, linking songs to transition between genres, play songs that resonate and connect people with moments in time and hey presto you keep people dancing and at the same your other guests start to join in and before you know it the dance floor is packed!

It’s a constantly changing situation so it’s also really important that I pay close attention to the reaction of your guests to the music being played and am prepared to introduce new tracks, change and move things around if necessary, and take the music up or down a gear as and when required.

This is where I can make a real difference as an experienced professional with an in depth knowledge of a wide range of music to select the right songs at the right times from the thousands of tracks available to me.

Sometimes one of the hardest things to do is get people off their seat in the first place, even more so after they have just had a big meal or a buffet, dancing is perhaps not the first thing that people would choose to do.

That’s when I can deploy a few subtle tricks and techniques to get your guests up and moving, so I don’t have to just rely on playing great music, as this alone may not be enough. Sometimes all that’s required is some positive intervention and a little gentle encouragement at the right moment to ignite the night.

I'm professional, fun, friendly and outgoing.

My style is informal which I believe helps your guests to relax and enjoy the moment.

I am clear and confident on the microphone without being over-bearing.

I bring a wealth of experience and expert insight, I'm creative and am happy to work with your ideas so that your celebration is personal and unique.

I love to see people enjoying themselves and having the best possible time.

Making other people happy gives me the most pleasure and of course its nice to get a great reaction on the dance-floor and some fantastic feedback.

The opportunity to do a job I love with the freedom and ability to deliver outstanding results.

I enjoy meeting people, making people happy and receiving great feedback for the job I do.

Here are 10 good reasons why you should select me:

Quite simply you will secure the services of an outstanding specialist DJ who will use his accumulated experience and creative skills to ensure your celebration is spectacular beyond your wildest expectations.

Together we will finesse the finest details of your celebration exploring you hopes and dreams and developing your ideas using my many years of experience to provide incisive insight into what works.

If you need to know more, here are 10 compelling reasons why you need to book;

​1. You will receive a friendly personal, professional service with outstanding customer service and support.

2. I plan your event and music meticulously with you. I welcome your song suggestions and of course take requests on the night.

​3. I have an extensive collection of music from all genres from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s 90’s and noughties including all of the party favourites, through to the current charts, latest releases as well as many specialist remixes. I have over 40,000 music tracks available at the touch of a button.

4. I am skilled DJ, Compere and Presenter with over 20 years experience in a variety of settings. I am confident and clear on the microphone when making announcements or introductions but won’t unnecessarily talk and interrupt the flow of the music. Where appropriate I seamlessly mix the music to create smooth transitions from one song to the next to help keep your guests on the dance floor. I can also be persuasive in getting dancers on the dance-floor if they need some encouragement in a fun way.

5. I use only the highest quality sound, lighting and play-out equipment which is serviced regularly checked and tested to ensure it is fit for purpose.

Audio - Full quality sound providing a nice deep bass with crystal clear mid and high frequencies.

Lighting - All lighting is computer controlled providing a classy coordinated lighting show. I use a professional starlit DJ booth which acts as a centre piece to the DJ set up in a choice of black or white. A range of wash lights, moving heads spot lights delivering stylish wedding gobo’s and prism effects, a high grade scanner that delivers more than 80 agile light beams, each beam chasing the other while continuously changing colour and gobo patterns, 3D Lasers, illuminated lighting podiums and complementary up-lighting.

DJ Play-out - This is club standard Pioneer Nexus set up or a Pioneer DJ Controller.

6. The Party Must Go On - I carry back up equipment so can easily switch equipment in the unlikely event of any failure. I have contingency plans in place for all potential foreseeable events.

7. I operate a fully legal and safe business - I am registered with the HMRC, hold public liability insurance of £10m, undertake venue visits, prepare risk assessments and ensure my equipment is regularly checked and is safe for use.

8. I take your stress away liaise directly with the venue regarding access and any specific requirements they have so you don't have to. I will be at the venue in good time to ensure that the equipment is set up safely and in such a way to minimise any inconvenience to your guests.

9. I communicate regularly and confirm everything in writing. I’m very easy to contact and very responsive to any questions or queries you have in the run up to your wedding or celebration. Everything is planned, checked and confirmed, so your celebration and the music is just the way you want it.

10. I have a 100% client satisfaction and 5 star record and often receive letters, cards, emails and social media expressions of deeply sincere thanks from couple's who have used my services. I regularly get follow on bookings as well as referrals because of the quality of what I do.
