Mobile DJ Disco 40th Birthday Party May 2018 at Darwin Community Centre Shrewsbury

Saturday 19th 2018 was a hot and sunny day and I was booked to provide a Disco for a 40th Birthday Party at Darwin Community centre Shrewsbury. Luckily, I was able to load in and partially setup at 12:30 this mad my life a lot easier as I was able to ensure everything was almost ready for the evening with just a few lights to plug in, Speakers to put up and a sound test to be completed on my arrival that evening.

The party was very much family based with a wide age range attending and a fabulous buffet was provided by the host which I must say was lovely!

The evening started with background music at 7pm going through to 9:15pm when the main disco started finishing at Midnight. Throughout the night we had lots of singing and dancing as you can see from the video and pictures I took.

70th Birthday Party Disco at Lion Hotel Shrewsbury May 2018

70th Birthday Party Disco at Lion Hotel Shrewsbury May 2018

Saturday 5th May 2018, Probably one of the most fabulous fun birthday party evenings so far this year! Although I was honestly slightly apprehensive in advance of this event as a few days before I was handed a ‘type of music’ play list which consisted of 1950’s & 1960’s Rock and Roll, Country & Western, Irish Country, Quick step and then ‘later’ something for the younger ones!

The day started just before lunchtime at around 11 with setup at in the Adam Ballroom in the Lion Hotel, Wyle Cop, Shrewsbury. Setup was about two hours as I had room mood lighting to put in, stage lighting for a live singer, wireless microphone for the singer, Mixer unit, Dancefloor lights, DJ equipment and PA (Speakers).

Gala Birthday Party

The evening started at 5pm with a Champaign reception for all the guests so I was onsite for 4pm to do a final sound check, switch the room mood lighting on and then get the background music all up and running prior to the first guest’s arrival.

Eddie Cullen – The Voice of the Legends

During the meal live entertainment was provided by Eddie Cullen who performed a number of hits from the likes of Neil Diamond, Frank Sinatra, Michael Bublé etc.. Eddie was full of energy and got everyone engaging and singing along a great start to the evening.

Once the meal was finished the group decided to push the tables to the side and open up the room as a massive dance floor and no sooner had they done that, the dance floor was packed. The requests were coming in thick and fast all evening and the dancefloor was busy all night long.

Leaving Party Disco April 2018 Darwin Community Centre Shrewsbury

Friday 27th April 2018 was Disco party night at the Darwin Community Centre in Frankwell Shrewsbury with a group of work colleagues gathering for a leaving party disco. I was booked to provide the DJ and Mobile Disco services.

The day started early for myself with a 1pm setup, where possible I always like to setup in advance to ensure everything is working and perfect prior to guest arrival. The client chose to have my compact setup which is ideal for groups of under 60 or smaller venues.

The event start time was 7pm with upbeat background music from 70s and 80s mobbing on to 80s dance floor fillers and other popular sing-a-long tunes from 8:45pm. I was asked to take requests and I was able to fit them in without any problem.

This was only a small group of 20 but as you can see no matter what the size of the group is if everyone is up for a great time you will have an amazing party!

Saturday 21st April 2018 I was booked to provide a 70’s-based Disco and play requests from the guests, arriving at lunchtime to setup due to a massive set of steps to navigate and the setup required. I knew it would take over two hours from start to finish, in fact it took two and a half hours to complete and it was probably the hottest day of the year so far! (If you are reading this in the future remember we had a couple of hot days during 2018!).

The evening background music start time was 7pm so I arrived back at Morris Hall Shrewsbury at 6:15pm. This ensured me plenty of time to switch on all the room mood lighting, power up the sound system and Pioneer XDJ DJ controller and start playing 70s pop tunes. This provided a fabulous atmosphere for all the guests when they were arriving.

Jenny Catering provided a fabulous meal for all with a selection of Curry’s, Rice & Nan Breads and once they had cleared the plates away it was time to fire up the Disco. Almost immediately the requests were coming in from the dance floor from Northern Soul classics through to The Killers with Mr Brightside. The group was friendly and lovely to work with many when leaving coming up to the DJ Booth and saying thank you for helping them have such a fabulous night 😊 which is really nice and very much appreciated. But let’s face it they liked their dancing and sing-a-long tunes so it was always going to be a cracker!

Surprise 30th Birthday Party Disco Darwin Community Centre Shrewsbury March 2018

Friday 30th March 2018 I provided a Disco for a 30th Birthday Party Disco at the Darwin Community Centre Shrewsbury, Shropshire. The event was a surprize birthday party for Nicola which had a Peaky Blinders based theme. Everyone was dressed in fancy dress and looked amazing.

I arrived at the venue at 5pm and started setup, as I was putting my full disco setup in place it takes a full 2 hours to setup and test ensuring everything is completed prior to the arrival of the first guests at 7pm.

Feedback was brilliant, everyone loved the music and had a fabulous time. They were a friendly bunch who were all out to have a fabulous party.

30th Birthday Disco Music Policy

I was asked to do a mixture of tunes from cheese through to a host of dance floor fillers using my discretion to read the audience and to ensure the dance floor kept busy. From experience this is always the best way to have a banging party!

Helicopter Pilot Graduation Disco March 2018

Helicopter Pilot Graduation Disco March 2018

Wednesday 28th March 2018 I provided a Disco for the Graduation Party at a Shropshire Helicopter Pilot training base, this involved an early arrival at 16:00, providing me just enough time to put in my full main setup. Music started at 19:00 and went through to 01:30, a bit later than originally planned.

The event was a huge success with the dance floor full from early on, the party had a 90s theme and as such many of the attendees were dressed in 90s themed costumes such as power Rangers, Telly Tubies, Pop Stars and various other incarnations! (I saw a velociraptor on the dance floor at one point!)

Helicopter Pilot Graduation Disco Music Policy

I was informed that the night was to be a 90s themed night so the vast majority of the music was classic 90s Dance, Britpop and Chart, but as the night approached the last hour we moved to general party, sing a long and floor fillers from through the decades.

Charity Fundraiser for Hope House at Berrington Village Hall

Charity Fundraiser for Hope House at Berrington Village Hall

Event Dates: 23rd March 2018

Type of Event: Charity Black Tie Fundraiser

Initially I was asked by the organisers if I could put a playlist together for when the band finished as they wanted to go carry on with the party from 11:30 through to 1am, as I was attending this event I thought we can’t have a Playlist playing through a Bluetooth speaker as that would be a rubbish finish to a fabulous Black Tie Gala event! So I volunteered my services free of charge, well it’s a really good cause!

It was the first time I had worked with this band (Vertigo), which is surprising as they like myself do a lot of Wedding gigs. So while the band were playing I danced and enjoyed their brilliant set ensuring to make a mental note of what they played and once they finished I did my set.

A fantastic time was had by all, money was raised for Hope House and I got to spend most of the night on the customer side 😊

This fabulous venue was dressed with the Full DJ Cheese setup providing an amazing sound system and disco lighting, all complimented with a top of the range colour LED dancefloor, large letters spelling DISCO and room mood lighting facilitated by Shrewsbury based Little Gem FX.

Based close to the town centre this venue is full of character and charm, it has a bar and kitchen facilities, ideally located and perfect for holding parties and gatherings that wish to have a disco.

Shropshire Party DJ Fills the Disco Dance Floor for the Christmas Party Re-run

Shropshire Party DJ Packs the Dancefloor

Saturday 20th January 2018, the last Christmas Party of the 2017 season! Due to a large number of people not being able to get to their Christmas Parties during the snow weekend in December 2017 the Lion Hotel honoured all their deposits and payments and proceeded with a re-arranged Christmas Party for all the people who missed out!

Apparently other venues told their clients to pay again or miss out! So well done Lion Hotel Shrewsbury for doing the right thing for their customers! 😊

So there I was mid-January with tinsel on my DJ Equipment, Full Christmas party setup, Christmas Quiz, Hula Hoops and lets not forget the very important and famous DJ Cheese Santa Hats! (Apparently sort after by the Children of attending parents). We started the evening with a bit of Christmas background music until around the main course when I brought in a couple of sing along top tunes and moved over to some classic 90s Britpop!

Following the meal, we had the competition to win a bottle of prosecco where four fabulous contestants competed head to head in this years first ever Hula Hoop competition, but in true Christmas Spirt everyone was a winner with the runners up all getting a free shot of Sour Cherry.

Once on to the Disco we started with a few floor filling classics moving on to an 80’s music set, I had a few requests for specific 90s and Indie tunes which I was able to fit in to the set nicely along with some proper floor filling party music, as you can see from the pictures and videos below everyone hade a great time and the feedback was amazing.

Engagement Party Disco at Ludlow Brewery

Ludlow Brewery Disco with DJ Cheese

Saturday 13th January 2018 saw a gathering at the Ludlow Brewery to celebrate Toby and Terri’s engagement. As always, I arrived with plenty of time to setup 6pm well in advance of the first guests arriving at 7pm.

My instructions were to play some upbeat background music for the guest’s arrival and then once the buffet was out to start the disco in full with the music policy for the night being 80s, 90s, 00’s, Indie and Party and I was allowed to take requests!

The party being a family celebration had a wide age range of guests, many of which made requests and as you can see from the pictures below danced the night away.

Ludlow Brewery is a lovely modern location that is ideal for parties and events like this, the room has a very tall celling and is on the large side and as such I was pleased I had brought my Yamaha DXS15 Sub as it was needed to ensure the sound was not lost in such a large space. Positioned on a small stage area in front of what is used as the dance floor area I was able to engage with the dancefloor and enjoy the atmosphere.
