Experience At Ad Lib (the bar I owned and managed) I played many DJ sets and hired all of the guest and resident DJs. I was responsible for choosing guest musicians as well as coordinating live music evenings. I've DJ'ed at private parties and wedding receptions in London, Surrey, Hampshire, Sussex, Norfolk and Scotland, and hosted DJ events or club nights at the following London venues: Bondai (Chelsea), The Hurlingham Club (Fulham), The Albannach (Trafalgar Square), Grey Goose (Clapham), The Kbar (Wimbledon), The Pembroke (Earls Court), Po Na Na (Chelsea and Wimbledon) and more...
Location I'm based in London but I'm happy to travel to most areas of England, Wales & Scotland as long as travel expenses are taken into account.
Excellent Sound Guaranteed It is really important to me that I provide excellent sound quality at my DJ events. Using top of the range speakers - with a sub-woofer for extra bass frequencies - can make a massive difference to the sound. I currently use an AV hire company in Surrey called True Sound Hire, their audio and lighting systems are fantastic. I aim to use Mackie, dB Technologies or RCF speakers for my events.
Pre-Event Planning I spend several hours preparing for each wedding or special event that I am booked to play at, here's what I will provide for you:
Intitial consultation and planning
Source music if required, prepare set list
Arrange AV hire and bring all equipment to venue
Set up DJ and AV equipment at venue and carry out sound-checks
Play an awesome DJ set and keep the dance-floor packed
I can prepare a bespoke music playlist to be played during dinner and coordinate the playback and volume
I can hire and set up separate speakers for speeches and assist with sound levels
I can recommend photographers, videographers and caterers for your event
Please contact me if you need a reliable, presentable, friendly and talented DJ or a great live band to play at your pub, bar or club, or at an event that you may be hosting. It would be great to hear from you.
