40th Birthday Party DJ Much Wenlock Shropshire October 2018

Saturday 6th October 2018 was Vick’s 40th Birthday Party which was held at the Church Hall in Much Wenlock Shropshire with around 45 members of her close friends and family attending.

I arrived at the venue around 5pm to setup, Vicky’s husband Alex had pre booked my services and had decided upon my Compact Setup and full room mood lighting. It took me around 45 minutes to setup and at 6pm I started DJing background music whilst all the guests were eating in the adjacent room.

Several children were present so to entertain them prior to the main disco I DJed some recent tunes and they danced and played musical statues. Once the food was finished at around 8:30 we moved on to the Main disco and immediately had a packed dancefloor with everyone having a fabulous time. I was asked to play a lot of very different styles and genres of music throughout the evening but I managed to play almost all requests, many of which I had not been asked to play for many a moon!

Mobile DJ Setup

The client decided to opt for my compact setup along with room mood lighting for this event.

Friday 5th October 2018 was Back to the 80s night at Weston Village Clubhouse Oswestry, as a DJ I always look forward to these nights as its always a great crowd,fabulos venue and I always had a great time.

Arriving at around 7pm setup a Weston Village Clubhouse is always very quick as they have in place a fantastic lighting system installed and some amazing speakers they pack a great punch.

I did not do any videos at this gig, I’m not really sure why! Think I was just busy DJing, I did however take a some photos that you will find below.

A massive thank you to everyone who went and we are hoping to organise another Back to the 80’s at Weston Village Clubhouse in march 2019. Like the ‘Back to the 80s Events’ or my Facebook page to keep up to date for the date.

Nurses Graduation Ball DJ Ramada Hotel Telford Shropshire

Friday 7th September 2018 was the Graduation Ball Disco for the latest group of Shropshire’s fantastic Nurses. I was asked to provide the music for the evening with starting with upbeat background music from 6:30pm and following their meal and speech the main disco through to midnight.

This really was a fantastic event with special themed extras around the room, three course meal, a photo booth and one of my amazing lighting setups. Although the total group was under 50 people that did not stop them filling the dance floor and having a great party to celebrate their fantastic achievement.

Graduation Ball DJ Sets

My first set was from 6:30pm which was the upbeat background music for guest arrival and during their three-course meal, I DJed live this set opposed to using a playlist on autopay as it enables me to read the room and get an idea of what people were reacting to! After the meal and speech, the disco lights went on and the did the main DJ set through to midnight, taking lots of requests and playing as many as I could.

It was also the first time I had DJed at the Ramada Telford and it was really nice to work with their team who were all friendly and set on making sure the night went amazingly.

Graduation Ball DJ Video

Once I had completed setting up the DJ equipment I produced this short video showing the room, setup and few of the things that had been put in place to enhance the evening.

I also managed to grab a quick video during the evening!

Here are a few pictures I took during the evening.

DJ Equipment

Upon arrival I found that the celling height was slightly too short for the DJ setup I had originally planned so I improvised and moved some of my lighting around, still providing an amazing look and visual wow factor for all the guests.

Wedding DJ and MC at Lion Hotel Shrewsbury Shropshire

Wedding DJ and MC at Lion Hotel Shrewsbury Shropshire

Saturday 1st September 2018 was the Wedding of John and Sacha Taylor at the Lion Hotel Shrewsbury Shropshire. I arrived around to setup at just after 10am as I was supplying Wedding Ceremony Music, Wedding Breakfast Music, Early Evening Background Music and of course the evening reception’s disco. I was also the Wedding MC / Informal toastmaster for the wedding using my wireless microphones for announcements, introduction of bride and groom to room, introduction of speeches and so on. The wedding party also used my wireless microphone for their speeches.

Wedding Ceremony Music

I was asked to provide the wedding ceremony music as there was a fairly large group and a high sound quality was required.

Wedding MC Shrewsbury Shropshire

During the afternoon I provided the Wedding MC / Informal Toastmaster services, starting with building up the rooms atmosphere for introducing bride and groom to room with a rapturous applause, announcing the speeches, providing the wireless microphone for the speeches – the importance of using a wireless microphone is something that is often overlooked and greatly helps reinforce the speeches so the older guests and people sitting not in the direct vocal can hear clearly.

Wedding DJ Video Shrewsbury Shropshire

Once we had finished setting up for the evening I decided to produce a quick video just before 1st Dance and the start of the evenings events, it was pointed out to me when I posted this video on Social Media that unusually I was not wearing my sun glasses #DJLife.

During the evening I took these two quick videos of the dance floor the first is everyone dancing to ‘Free from desire’

And this second one is the classic dance floor filler Mr Brightside

80s 90s Themed 30th Birthday Party DJ Whitchurch Shropshire

Saturday 4th August 2018 I was booked for a joint 30th Birthday at Whitchurch Rugby Club Shropshire that had an 80s and 90s fancy dress theme! It was great to see so many of the guests dress up and also do it so well (The BA Barracks from the A-Team was sensational!)

I did suggest that due to the number of Mario’s present that we could have a Mario Floss Dance Off but that was a step too far apparently! The party had a great atmosphere all night and I spent most of the night playing guest requests.

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!)

Wedding DJ Disco Dancefloor Videos

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

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.
