We booked Dave for our wedding reception he was a fantastic choice, highly recommended. Any large future events we will not hestitate to give him a call. We met in advance and discussed what music we both liked and disliked, and then provided him a playlist of our favourite songs that he could incorporate into his own playlist. Very professional, reliable and friendly. An amazing DJ. We are so thrilled we booked him. Thank you again Dave.

Booked Dave for my 40th and was a great DJ! Gave him a really small playlist from which he built a great set. Fitted in with everything else that was going on and my guests commented how good he was. Would definitely recommend :)

Dave came recommended by one of the guests for our wedding, and we definitely made the right choice! He was friendly and professional, and made the process completely stress-free.
We met with him in advance, and talked through the kind of music we'd like played (and not played) and just before the day provided him with a list of songs we wanted incorporated into his playlist. There wasn't a single moment that the dance-floor wasn't occupied and everyone commented on his fabulous lighting set up. He took our lead on timings for our speeches etc and provided us with a wireless microphone so that we could stand by our cake (at the other side of the funtion room to his set up).
Would highly recommend him to anyone, regardless of occasion (he was definitely fantastic for our wedding). We will definitely be using him again for family functions and parties.
Thanks again Dave. Kind Regards
Mr & Mrs Holbrook

We used Dave for our wedding and he was absolutely perfect! We would highly recommend him for any events you have coming up - the dancefloor was filled all night! Prompt arrival, good communication before the big day which made everything really simple for us.

We booked Dave for our wedding and I couldn't recommend him highly enough. He essentially managed anything that needed sound for the whole day from the PA system for the ceremony and post-ceremony entertainment to a DJ set in the evening. He asked for a list of the songs we'd like to see played and then worked this into a set that had a great mix for all ages and musical tastes. He was so helpful and his whole manner meant that we didn't have to worry about anything with the music all day. We wouldn't hesitate to book him again for any event.

From the beginning we made contact we couldn't have been more happy. David was professional and took time to get our selection right and played brilliantly on the night of our party getting everyone up and enjoying themselves. We will never need to look for another DJ. Couldn't be faulted - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I would highly recommend David for any party. The music he played was fantastic, he knew just what to play to get everyone enjoying themselves on the dance floor and it was thanks to him that our party was a great success. He was really easy to deal with, very flexible about the type of tunes he could play and on the night we did not have to worry about anything dj related, he just got on with it. 200 people from the party would also highly recommend him - what a night, thanks David!

Many thanks to David for a great 40th wedding anniversary celebration. He was an amazing DJ played all our requested music and much more. We would highly recommend him for any celebration. Thank you

Review of If You Need a DJ by Cee

David was the most professional with his work; he arrived early and set up in time for the first guest's arrival 45 minutes earlier than expected.

The girls had given him a playlist and requested clean versions. David was able to provide them with all but one song on the list and clean versions as requested.

The girls who usually took time to engage in party atmosphere or at times not at all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and I have had girls and parents alike telling me it was the best party they had been to.

Thanks to David, the party was a rousing success and I will use him time and again.

Many thanks to Richard and his team for a great 30th birthday experience. From the initial correspondence to executing a DJ and photobooth set on the night, I've been very impressed with everything and been made to feel relaxed and comfortable that everything is in hand. Would definitely book again for a great night.

Dave was beyond fantastic! He didn't just do an amazing job he went above and beyond being a dj! He really helped out with the run up to the wedding and even rescued us the day before when we couldn't download our ceremony music. He was amazing on the day and he played a perfect set. I cannot recommend David enough for a birthday, wedding or anniversary party! My husband and I were extremely grateful for all he did and so pleased he was part of our big day!! Thank you Dave x

If You Need a DJ Q&A

If You Need a DJ Q&A

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

This is a skill that is developed through experience, with the secret of success being to read the crowd and time your big songs for the right moment. You don't want the dance floor to peak too early, but need to keep people interested from the start. In my experience, most people at a party want to have a chat and a few drinks first before dancing, so we use this time to read our crowd and see what's catching people's attention, and then build from there. As the atmosphere builds, we know which songs will get the best reaction and ensure people are having a great time.

How would you describe your ‘style’?

Fun, good time music, professionally mixed. We think it's very important how one song blends in to another, building an atmosphere and being in control of a dance floor. Whilst developing these skills over a number of years I've had the pleasure of DJing at some of the world's most famous clubs and brands including the Ministry of Sound and Pacha, and have always thrived on seeing people have a great time on the dance floor. Now covering a broader selection of music, my passion for what I do and why I do it is as strong as ever, and is clear to see.

What do you love most about your job?

Seeing people enjoy themselves to the music I've selected. It may not even be my favourite music, but it's a great feeling when you get it right for the crowd in front of you.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I love DJing. I love meeting people. I love connecting with them when I'm playing music and seeing them enjoy themselves on a dance floor. I'd played in clubs and bars for many years and kept getting asked if I'd do private bookings, and after accepting a few I found I was really enjoying them, so realised quite quickly that I wanted to go more down this route. The business startup was the next logical step and one of the best things I've ever done. It's grown rapidly since I started with many fantastic parties, consistent 5 star reviews, and numerous people recommending me to their friends. Please check out the reviews on here and on Google to see what my clients have thought. You're in safe hands.

Why should our clients choose you?

We offer a friendly and professional service and genuinely care about putting on a great party for you. We love seeing people have a great time, and that's what our business is all about. We will add a wow factor to any event, and as experienced professionals we know what it takes to deliver a successful party in the right way. There are many types of DJs out there, from inexperienced youngsters through to some that have plenty of experience but are stuck in the dark ages. As our reviews and testimonials prove, we're not like that at all and offer a genuinely great service. Please take a look at our website, www.ifyouneedadj.co.uk and contact me on 07888 760335 for a friendly chat to discuss your requirements in more detail.
