“I just wanted to say thank you for the fantastic wedding disco - the music was great everyone had a brilliant time. I am delighted we chose you” - Sarah Atkins
Rickmansworth Premier Wedding DJ & Disco service. We provide the Perfect Entertainment for your amazing wedding.
From funk, house and drum and bass, to indie anthems, pop and R'n'B, I can confidently play the music that will make you and your guests dance like no one's watching.
Great music is vital to the success of every wedding and is often one of the last things to be thought about. You'll probably forget what the cake tasted like but it's unlikely you'll forget your nan throwing some shapes to the House Of Pain's 'Jump Around'!
I endeavour to mash up the old with the new, to create a sound that’s both familiar and refreshing at the same time.
I'm not going to play the same old tired music from start to finish, instead I'll be mixing completely live from a selection of records tailor-made to please everyone from your grandparents to your coolest of friends. After all, who wants to be at another wedding where you have to endure 'Gangnam Style', 'Hi Ho Silver Lining' or the 'Macarena' ...AGAIN!
Get in touch and we can organise a FREE no obligation consultation to talk about your event in more detail, finding out about the music you love and of course the music you don't! Plus it's a chance for us just to get to know each other. I can come to you anywhere in or around Rickmansworth or if that isn't possible, or you're based further a field, then we can easily set up a Skype session...
Then it's on to the soundtrack for your reception... from the first dance to the last. I will build your bespoke playlist from as little or as much information that you can give me about the music that you LOVE. It's over to me then... let me fill in the gaps that will keep your party alive!

Q. Can you provide a written contract if I book you & testimonials from previous clients?
When a booking is made with me, a confirmation letter is sent which contains all the details as agreed including the date, times, venue, names and contact details. I will also note any specified music requests and any other services that may have been added. Some recent testimonials are shown on my website.
Q. Do you use professional equipment?
There is a big difference between the audio equipment that you have at home and the equipment that a professional DJ like myself uses. Professional audio equipment is built to go on the road day in and day out. I will only use the best professional equipment on the market to ensure the music sounds as good as possible for all of your guest’s enjoyment. The lighting that I use is second to none, LED moving head lighting effects and computer controlled lasers. All of the equipment on my shows is state of the art professional DJ equipment, which is regular serviced by authorised engineers and all of my electrical equipment is PAT tested annually.
Q. Do you have back-up equipment?
Although the equipment that I use is highly reliable and has never let me down I understand that accidents can happen when there are people enjoying themselves and there are drinks around. As a professional I always bring spare equipment to every function to cover every eventuality.
Q. What would happen if you were to get ill on the day of my wedding?
In all of the years that I have been a professional DJ I can honestly say that I have never had to cancel a booking due to illness. However, being as established as I am I know many other professional DJ’s who I could call upon in the unlikely event that I were not able to fulfill the booking.
Q. Will you be suitably dressed for the occasion?
I understand that it is very important that the DJ looks the part by dressing in formal or semi-formal attire. I usually wear a suit at a wedding . I always dress in smart trousers & shirt for other functions. Please feel free to specify the type of apparel that I should use at your function. I have no added fee for formal attire, as this is part of my service.
Q. Do you know the proper procedure and etiquette for a wedding?
I am a highly respected professional DJ, and will be prepared to handle all announcements and special events during your wedding entertainment. On average, I perform at around 40 weddings each year but each one is special and unique.
Q. Are you registered and insured, and is your equipment tested regularly?
I am a professional DJ & businessman. I ensure that I have adequate Public Liability Insurance (PLI) and regularly get all of my electrical equipment tested to ensure that I comply with the standards required for Portable Appliance Testing (PAT). I carry full Public Liability Insurance, covering myself for £10 Million.
Q. Will you arrive on time?
I know that punctuality is an ultimate necessity, and as a professional, I am thoroughly aware of my responsibilities to my clients. The normal time spent setting up and removing equipment is never a part of the entertainment fee, unlike some other DJ’s. The setup time depends on the package chosen and the ease of access to the room, but generally I arrive on site one hour prior although it usually takes about 30 minutes. I am extremely punctual and ensure that I have the correct venue details & address at the time of booking. All venue address & contact details will be on the contract in advance.
Q. Will it be you that does the show and not somebody else?
I do not act as an agency, and do not have anybody working for me. You can be assured that I will be the DJ who will perform for you and your guests on the night!
Q. Are you willing to discuss musical selections ahead of time, and be willing to play requests, particularly if they are suitable for dancing?
Of course. As a professional DJ, I am very aware that I cannot possibly know everything there is to know about your musical preferences. There is no”right or wrong” with music and everybody has their own individual tastes. A song on one person’s playlist might be another person’s “please don’t play list” so I am more than willing to listen to your thoughts, ideas and suggestions. I will never play the songs that you have asked me not to play. Special or unusual requests are never a problem and I am always happy to play them when appropriate.
Obviously it is not possible for me to have every song in the world with me, so I always encourage people to list any special “must play” tracks to enable me to purchase the music if I don’t already own it. Guests will sometimes request songs that do not “fit-in” with the music programming that has been indicated by the bride and groom. Some may request inappropriate songs. I am a highly Professional entertainer and I know when it is acceptable to honour requests.
Q. So can we provide you with a song list?
Yes. Some people give me a list and others don’t. You can list as many or as few songs as you like. Most song last 3 or 4 minutes so that means about 15 to 20 songs per hour. Try to come up with songs that you like to dance to rather than songs that you like to listen to though.
If you don’t want to do a list that is fine. It is my job to quickly gauge the crowd and play the appropriate music that will keep the dancefloor full.
Q. How much music do you bring?
Some DJ services brag about a huge music library. I know of some DJ’s that brag about having 100,000 songs. Maybe so, but their music collection is most probably illegally downloaded and is generally of a low audio quality. Every song in my database is owned on original CD, and I generally bring 50,000 songs on the night. I have a vast range of music covering almost every era. If you request a song that I am unable to locate beforehand, then you are more than welcome to supply this on a CD.
Q. Will you play cheesy songs such as the Birdie Dance & Agadoo all night?
The stereotypical image of a wedding disco is of a guy that will only play the very cheesy hits all night long. I take great care in each of the songs that I select. At weddings I usually play a broad mix of music for everyone but I know where to draw the line so I wouldn’t normally play nasty cheesy music unless I was specifically asked to by the Bride & Groom.
Q. Will the music be too loud?
The music volume should be kept at an appropriate level so it doesn’t ‘interfere’ with the event. Throughout all segments of the reception, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing, the music should add to, or help create the proper atmosphere. During dinner the music should be at a level to provide a pleasant atmosphere while people are enjoying their meal. The music level shouldn’t be so loud that it is distracting when you are engaged in conversation. As the event progresses towards the dancing portion of the event I will gradually increase the volume and tempo. The increase is mainly concentrated on the dance floor, and my sound systems are always placed in the correct manor. This adds to the overall excitement of the party. I will always work to your preference.
