I play an eclectic mix of dance and party music, with a slight bias towards UK and US music. I don’t have particular playlists, but a great sense of know what often works well with songs that are being danced to. I can play music choices from a playlist, from my paid-for music collection of 19,000 + tracks or other live sources on the night.
So you want to have a ‘play list’? “I think, the way music availability has changed, my job now, often needs the following skill… and that it is to interpret any play list given and try and put it in to some sense of order, that will make sense, on the fly. Also adding tracks that are either requested on the night, or ones that I know normally go together well, and will extend the dancing, positively” “Play lists” DO have a place as guidance as to what the Bride or Groom may like to hear on the big night, and if it is really good ‘play list’, it will contain music that they suspect the majority of their friends will enjoy too. They should never be either too long or rigid, because honestly, it will just ruin the evening for the majority. Don’t forget many of your guests will want to have a good time too, and may well have spent many hundreds of pounds on flights, accommodation and car hire. If you don’t like Cha Cha Slide, Aggadoo or Dexies Midnight runners etc, or have any other firm dislikes, this can obviously be accommodated, but my motto always has been;- “to keep most of the people dancing, most of the time” Keeping with the above – I would recommend a list of “must have” songs, that gives the DJ a good idea as to the type of music you AND your guests may like, And I would suggest 30 or 50 song MAX (and that is 3 hours of music approx.) And as a guest at a recent wedding, being extremely disappointed that his or his Girlfriends favourite tracks were NOT able to be played – due to restrictions put in place by the groom, said, “A great shame, as those tunes are what memories are made of !!” I couldn’t agree more. So there you have it. Rant over
It is difficult to publicise prices, because in order to provide a quote, I need / use the following info;- Date, and arrival and departure time Number of guests Distance form my base 24160 in S/W France Exactly what services are required, to judge timings and equipment requirements Where I am in France the day before or the day after, and whether I need accommodation, etc To obtain a quote use the form linked in the menu.
Yes and no, I don’t have video’s of me DJ’ing as such, as they would be quiet boring for most, as I tend to keep the talking to a minimum, and let the music do the talking. Also, so people may find what I could be playing at that moment, not to their taste, which could be crazily off-putting! On the gallery pages, there is a brief snippet link to a YouTube video..
I am not a club DJ, (though I did DJ in Maximillian’s, Sheffield, a long, long time ago!) As such I am not a specialist in Club music, or beat for beat mixing, and the appetite for that is extremely small in the wedding market, in my experience. It does not mean i cannot or do not play club or house tunes, or any music that is required, because I do, do!
