Steve played at our wedding on 30th August and i have nothing but good things to say. He arrived with plenty of time to set up and just got on with it - so much so that i didn't even realise he'd arrived until after he had set up. We had a few technical issues with some video equipment and he was extremely helpful even though it wasn't anything to do with him. We played the Shoe Game after being advised by Steve that it goes down very well at weddings and everyone loved it including myself and my husband. He had the whole room up dancing from the moment he started playing until the very end. I would recommend Retro DJ without hesitation for any type of party need. I will definitely be using him again in the future. Thank You Steve :)

Steve did our wedding on 29/9/2017 he did an absolutely amazing job and played a variety of songs to please all crowds. Was very impressed with the quality and lighting - couldn't have asked for anything more top 10 tracks were played and the order which we requested - all guests said what a great evening and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and music! Would not hesitate to use again for any occasion! Thanks again steve xx

We booked Steve for our wedding at Bowood, and he was brilliant! Everyone was up dancing all night, right to the very end, as Steve played tune after tune. Steve keeps in good contact with you as well, which is reassuring, especially when planning a wedding and wanting everything to go smoothly! I would highly recommend Retro DJ for all events!!

Highly recommended! Retrodj did our wedding for us in Devizes, Wiltshire. They were very professional, contacted the venue directly for us which took much appreciated pressure off (Thanks Steve!). They quickly had the floor filled and kept them there all night :) Good reliable DJs are had to find and Retro kept in contact with us to make sure we had exactly what we wanted, nothing was too much trouble.

Retro DJ Q&A

Retro DJ Q&A

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

By taking requests.
Reading the crowd.
Good use of the microphone depending on the clients preference on microphone usage.
Talking to the guests prior to the start if possible to gain their trust and so that they feel comfortable approaching the DJ.
I strongly believe in giving the client what they want. I have seen too many DJ's play their own favourite music thinking that everyone else will like it too.

How would you describe your ‘style’?

I don't really have a style as I try to adapt because every event is different. However, I believe that a good sense of humour is important.

What do you love most about your job?

Getting paid for enjoying myself. Yes I really do love my job !
Job satisfaction. I like to see the pleasure I give to everyone doing my job.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I didn't really want to just own a business, it had to be a wedding DJ or nothing. It has just grown over the years and we are now one of the largest and best DJ services covering the south of England.

Why should our clients choose you?

With over 27 years experience as a business, we have never cancelled on a client or received any complaints, EVER !
I challenge any DJ in the country to match my music knowledge. (Now there's a statement)
I am a full time DJ, registered and professional.
I'm hoping to find the time to write a book this year to educate the client and to include what to look for when booking entertainment and the level of service that they should expect to receive.
Why should potential clients choose to book Retro DJ?
There are a lot of very good DJ's out there but then there are also a lot of bad DJ's that give the professionals a bad name. When a client has a bad experience it has a roll over effect on all DJ's professional or not. Let's face it, anyone can go out and buy a cheap mixer, speakers and advertise themselves as professional.
We are always updating our sound and lighting equipment
We have back up DJ's should anyone fall sick on the day
We carry back up equipment should anything fail on the day
We don't hold another job during the week, we are just professional DJ's
What is a professional?
A professional is someone who has a lot of experience and training such as a tradesman who only does what they do as a profession.
Would you go to a doctor or solicitor who only did this as his or her second job?
A professional DJ is someone who only does this as a living. They could be an experienced DJ but a lot of DJ's still claim to be professional even though they just DJ in their spare time or as a hobby ! However, an experienced DJ may be all that you need for your event especially if you are just having a knees up at your local bar but if you have a really important event such as your wedding day, then we would recommend using a professional. It all depends on how special your party is to you.
Message to clients:
Do your homework !
Does your DJ have a good reputation?
Don't just look at a website and believe the testiomonials. A good website does not mean a good DJ although it does show that they have made some effort.
Ask them if they can back up their testimonials. Speak to the venues where they have worked as the venues have no reason to lie.
Don't just go for the cheapest. If they are cheap, there is uaually a reason for that.
How much should I pay for a DJ ?
This is often the very first question that is asked. It all depends on what you are looking for really.
Imagine that you wanted to treat someone special to a meal ! You could pay for a takeaway meal or you could really try to impress them by taking them to a good restaurant or you can even go michelin star. Either way you are still getting a meal but the prices are very different.
I could go on forever which is why I would like to find the time to write a book. Please note that It is not my intention to knock other DJ's as I have already mentioned that there are a lot of good DJ's out there but there are also a lot of bad ones. I have simply just tried to put everything into perspective.
