Summer Wedding DJ Disco at Glyngynwydd Cottages and Wedding Barn Llanidloes Powys SY18 July 2018

Summer Wedding DJ Disco at Glyngynwydd Cottages and Wedding Barn

Another 27 degree Saturday and this time I’m in a Barn in Mid Wales which is nice and cool, well cooler than outside! Saturday 14th July 2018 was the wedding of Jade and Charlie at Glyngynwydd Cottages and Wedding Barn in Llanidloes, Powys SY18.

Jade and Charlie had decided that they would like me to provide Ceremony Music, Background Music during the afternoon, background music during the wedding breakfast and then up the tempo late afternoon through to the main disco at 9pm after the first dance.

You can see from my video that it’s a fabulous venue with so much space and friendly owners who were on hand through the day to help where needed (Nice people tom work with).

With an arrival setup time of 10:30am and a finish time of just after 1:30am by the time everything was packed away and loaded it was a fairly long day.

Not only do I run through the equipment, but you get a quick venue tour as well!

Wedding DJ Disco Setup, Arrival and Venue Images

Setup took just over two hours mainly due to setting up for the wedding ceremony at a separate building and the clients choosing the bigger lighting setup (well worth it though!)

I took a couple of videos during the day and evening of the dancefloor.

14th Birthday Party DJ Lilleshall Abbey

Sunday 1st July 2018 was an evening of DJing for a 14th Birthday Party in a Marquee in grounds overlooking Lilleshall Abbey. It was a hot summers evening and the location was perfect for the event. I was provided with a list of must play tunes in advance and also a request list during the evening.

I am only able to show setup images as it was requested that I don’t show and pictures of the guests.

Corporate Conference PA Hire and After Conference Disco for the Ice Cream Farm Cheshire

Corporate Conference PA Hire and After Conference Disco

Thursday 14th June was the annual Ice Cream Farms staff conference and party! I was asked to provide a PA system with wireless microphones for the conference and then a after conference disco in their very own Tipi which they had built only a few weeks before.

The event also had a host of outdoor activities and attractions from a giant inflatable slide through to dancers on stilts and it looked like everyone was having an amazing time.

With an age range of 13 to 18 managing to pack the dance floor for the night can sometimes be difficult apparently! 😉

School Prom DJ Disco Setup Images

My setup for School Prom’s and large parties is quiet different from my wedding setup, although customers get the choice between what setup they would like I prefer to offer School Prom’s and large parties a setup that is aimed more at a dancefloor lighting approach opposed to the subtle wedding setup. As you can see from the pictures below my School Prom / Large Party setup not only provides an amazing dancefloor effect it also provides an overall wow factor when viewed from the dancefloor side. 😊

This event had quiet a bit of equipment to enable to provide not only an amazing sound quality but also a visual wow factor.

50th Birthday Party Disco at Lion Hotel Shrewsbury with DJ Cheese Disco

50th Birthday Party Disco at Lion Hotel Shrewsbury with DJ Cheese Disco

Saturday 26th May 2018 back at the Lion Hotel Shrewsbury for a big 50th Birthday Party Celebrations with over 100 guests attending, it was always going to be an amazing night.

Initially arriving at 10am to setup the room mood lighting, and stage backdrop lighting whilst also on my way to a lunch time gig for a birthday party from 12 noon to 3pm. Once back at the Lion at around 4:10pm I finished the setup and completed a full lighting and sound text before heading home to get changed!

Back onsite at 6:30pm which is plenty of time before the first guests arrive at 7pm. I started with some background music concentrating on 80s classics to get the mood going. Just after 9pm once everyone had finished the buffet and the birthday girl had completed her speech we started the main disco.

From my perspective they were a fantastic bunch to work with as they were all out to have a great time and an amazing party, filling the dance floor from start to end.

Triple Birthday Party at Cross Houses Community Centre Shrewsbury Shropshire with DJ Cheese Disco on Friday 25th May 2018

Friday 25th May 2018 was a triple birthday party for Gabriella, Daisy and Emily who were all celebrating their 11th Birthday at a joint party.

I was able to setup mid-afternoon, so everything was in place and ready prior to first guests arrival, with a start time of 6pm and a finish at 9pm.

The girls all provided me with a play list each, so I was able to ensure all their favourite tunes were played.

No kid’s birthday party would be complete without a floss dance off!

Mobile Disco Setup

The hall at Cross Houses Community Centre has tall walls and a fabulous high celling which looks great with effects and lighting and as you can see from the pictures and video its worth going the extra mile and putting additional lighting in.

Mobile Disco Equipment

The setup for this gig needed to ensure it had enough sound and the room is fairly large and it needs more than just two 12” tops so I added a Yamaha DXS15 Sub this time, additionally the room needs additional lighting, more then just dancefloor effect lighting to provide that added wow factor.

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.
