Music and entertainment have always played a large part in my life, from the age of 5 I have played a musical instrument, between the ages of 9-15 I played out regularly at local clubs and old peoples homes in and around the Fenland area, unfortunately due to the pressure of my impending GCSE examinations the live performing had to take a bit of a back seat, I don’t get to play now, but one day……..
It was around the age of 15 that I worked through the summer holidays, saving like mad, to purchase my first pair of DJ turntables, from that moment I was hooked and I was determined to become a DJ. From then on I slowly built the Mobile Disco up and performed at small parties and events, gaining valuable experience of all types of event.
Since 1996 I have been a fully self employed professional DJ, since the beginning I have worked numerous corporate events and private celebrations. Please see below for a list of venues that have previously worked at.
I have also gained much experience as a compere for theatre shows (Dream Concerts) appearing in Theatres across the country from the South (Eastbourne, Bournemouth), the South West (Taunton, Swansea) to the North (Motherwell, Oldham, Bridlington etc).
As well as working as a mobile travelling DJ and Disco, I have much experience working in nightclubs, bars and fun pubs throughout East Anglia and the whole of the South East. Since 1996 I have worked at least one night a week in residency for both independent operators and also large corporate chains, including Yates Wine Lodges and Luminar Leisure.
My connection with the entertainment industry does not end at working as a professional DJ, since leaving college I have worked as an entertainment consultant and event manager, this involves advising all types of clients from brides to be through to corporate clients, advising and sourcing all types of entertainment for weddings, corporate parties, national promotions and other promotional events. I can advise on all types of entertainment, should you require further information please contact me.
