When I talk to clients about their wedding, the come to realise that the DJ does a lot more than the music. But the music is what I love, it's at the root of my service and it's what I'm most passionate about.
I work closely with my clients to deliver a personalised service. Most of my bookings are weddings.
I always meet with my brides and grooms. I don’t charge extra for this - but it will probably cost you a cup of tea.
I am proud to hold a degree in Professional Sound Technology from the University of Salford. I now focus solely on DJ'ing Full time, but I have in the past worked as a Sound Engineer for Touring Bands and Tribute Acts.
Here goes...I'm based in Manchester I am familiar with many of the North-west’s leading wedding venues. But I can, and do, travel far outside the North-West region.
My service wouldn't be complete without great sound and lighting, I carry all my own sound and lighting. I've upgraded it piece by piece and I'm really happy with it. Essentially it allows me the control I need to do my job. Whether that's raising the lights for a 'spotlight moment' or dimming the music down, but retaining clarity, for the perfect amount of presence.
I love this job it's a real honour each time I'm chosen to play at someone's wedding. I hopefully give them peace of mind from the moment they book until the end of the night. Carefully considering all the things I've picked up from our first chat, to parts of the speeches, and all the notes made in between. There are many skilled suppliers each with their own ideas and ways of doing things, some which I really like but aren't for me, and some which I disagree with entirely. If you would like to have a chat about your wedding would you like to Check Your Date now?
