Had a brilliant work do and Steve's great sounding, professional set-up played a major part in the day's success. It was great to see some undiscovered work talents revealed as part of the open mic session and the music quality was loud and clear when selected tracks were played via the iPod. Even the look of the gazebo and set up gave the event a quality feel - cheers Steve! More...

Worked with Steve on London fashion week at the Waldorf hotel and also Tisbury summer music festival. Highly professional and knowledgable in all areas of sound and lighting. Book music first and you have the whole of this side sorted from the day you book!! More...

Q&A

You have to be able to read the crowd and the mood constantly. Working with the client before the event will help to gauge the genre and style of music to start with and from then on as a DJ it is your job to partly lead, partly respond to the crowd. Every disco is a journey that should go somewhere better with each step of the way. I don't believe in just playing the same old cheesy party tunes and I don't have a one-off set list that I churn out every time. This also is why an iPod or phone type of playlist doesn't work - if the crowd aren't getting it, then someone needs to be reacting and adjusting and developing the taste - and if it is your party you want to be dancing not fiddling with the player!!

My style is to please the client! Every party is unique - venue, reason and crowd - and therefore every disco MUST be different. Client interaction and satisfaction are my most important goals. Our company can do everything from a traditional all-ages disco up to more like club-style DJ sets and yes I have my favourites - I love chillout and EDM, but am also into rock and 80s and everything really from opera to metal. My passion really is just music.

I love to entertain. The best discos are the ones where at the end of the night everyone has a smile on their face and looks worn-out but happy - because they've spent the night dancing and laughing and just enjoying the moment. Lots of things help that - the light show and a bit of fog or haze set the atmosphere, then the music sets the mood. You should feel the beat without being deafened all night long. The light show and the music should produce both light and shade, up and down tempo, serious dance moves and light-hearted moments.

I started Music First after about 15 years doing amateur work as a musician and a sound engineer.  With a life-long passion for music and having been involved in many church worship bands over the years, it was easy to get involved with PA and production, always striving for that better sound...  that more professional performance.  And so I started collecting PA gear - speakers, fold-backs, amps, mixing desks, mics, radio gear, etc: more kit, better sound.
Almost by accident I started doing village fetes.  I turned up to one charity fayre once where my partner was running the dog show, but the PA guy was a no-show.  I shot home and grabbed some gear and for the last 6 or 7 years I've become their sound guy.  From that, more bookings for fetes and recently a booking to evaluate and eventually install a new sound system for a local village Parish Church.  The rest, as they say...

We are a professional, fully insured, VAT registered and Limited company. We offer absolute reliability: your event is as important to us as it is to you and we will work with you from the moment you choose us until the moment we finish packing up (or finish and deliver your recordings if including studio work). Aside from a 'can do' attitude to making things work, our attention to detail, testing, carrying spares, being early and rigged on time, all add up to making sure the show goes on. We have never let down a client and because of the way we cover everything we do, it is unlikely we ever will.
