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

The most difficult thing a DJ or any entertainer will come across is the age range at an event and also the differences in music taste. You will find occasions where a soulful Motown classic get's the party going but there is still that group of youngsters who are still seated. The secret is to keep it varied, find a balance between all genres that entertain everyone; mix them correctly so there is no clear jump between genre. Using a microphone to entertain your guests as well as announcing the "buffet is open", is also key. The client isn't paying for an overcompensated juke box, they are paying for a DJ, an entertainer, a social character that can get the crowd dancing and keep them there!

How would you describe your ‘style’?

I would describe our style as outgoing and fun. From kid's parties, to the 70th birthdays - we always make sure our guests have big smiles on their faces and more importantly, are having fun. Our DJ's are outgoing social people that enjoy chatting to clients and creating a lively atmosphere! For example, whacking on the 'Cha Cha Slide' and hoping people join in is only half the work; they need to grab the microphone, dance along with them and keep them motivated to keep dancing and have a great time!

What do you love most about your job?

The most enjoyable thing about the job for us is the end of the night. The balloons have all popped, the confetti is everywhere, the nice suits and ties are all untucked and wrapped around heads. Kids are still laughing with one another and hyperactive from all the soft drinks. And the dispersing crowd are all yelling for one more song. Whilst packing down the equipment every parent, work colleague or guest is approaching you saying how great of a night it has been! Nothing is more fulfilling in this job than that.

What inspired you to start your own business?

We started off as a part time DJ at our local rollerskating rink. We were in charge of the light shows, music and conducting the games the customers played. Creating fun new shows every session was amazing! Every night we would conduct new games, create different light shows and play music from all different genres. The smiles on peoples faces and kids begging their parents to take them again was elating. That is when we decided to take this mobile and provide the same service to hundreds of other people and their own guests. Thus Soundwavez Entertainment was born.

Why should our clients choose you?

As stated before we believe in the quality of service over the quantity of price. We pride ourselves on being one of the most affordable yet best DJ service in the area. That is why we are Top 3 Best Rated in Essex and currently retain our 5 stars of amazing feedback and testimony. We use only the best equipment to provide clear quality sound, body shaking bass and the best light shows to cover an entire field. Get in touch with us today and find out how we can take your event to the next level!

It normally takes around 30-40 minutes for a DJ to set up their equipment but this could change depending on the specific DJ, venue, and event.

Most DJs will offer lighting hire either as an add-on or as part of their general service. Although it really depends on the DJ and the packages they offer. For example, a DJ may include floor lighting as a standard part of the service but then charge extra for more advanced lighting equipment including bar lights and moving headlights.

Most DJs will curate a playlist based on your requests and provide it to you in advance of the event, just to make sure that you’re happy with it and to make tweaks if necessary. How much freedom you give to your DJ in terms of creating the music list is essentially down to you. Some customers prefer to request almost every artist/track on the playlist, whereas others are happy for the DJ to take the reigns and come up with the tracks themselves.
