Excellent, all requests were played, music was brilliant, not any random DJ talking – a few funny comments though.

We have had loads of comments on how good the music was, it was exactly what we wanted, probably better than we though it was going to be! The service in arranging the booking was really quick, easy and very approachable.

Thank you Shaun! We had an amazing time. No-one wanted to go home.

Alan,
A huge thanks to you and Shaun for being part of our perfect day. From the outset, it was great to deal with such a responsive team and you made booking a DJ & finalising details so easy. Shaun was excellent! He was smartly dressed, a pleasure to deal with ahead of the wedding and a consummate professional on the day, reading our guests’ moods and preferences really well to get lots of people dancing. We would not hesitate to recommend you and will certainly do so, giving your cards out when any opportunities present themselves.

Thanks again, we’re really grateful.
Best Wishes
Steve & Rhiannon.

Dear Alan

Just a personal note to say thank you for your input into making Jo and Seb’s day so special last Saturday. The music during the meal was just right and the evening party enjoyed by all – where do young people get their energy! There was certainly no encouragement needed to get people onto the dance floor!

I do hope you enjoyed the occasion as much as we did and again, many thanks for being an important part of Jo and Seb’s celebration.

With best wishes
Nuala

Comments: Hi Graham,
May I say that both ALAN the DJ and REFUNCT were a great success and even though I did not have too much to do with them on the night, as I had handed them over to the event organiser (Rupert Durrant) the feed back from all concerned was very positive and complimentary.
The dance floor was almost always full to bursting on both the DJ and Band sets, and the next day many people came up to me and thanked me for sorting out the music entertainment for the evening.
I believe Alan played on ’til the early hours of the morning, so good on him, and the band were a great bunch and performed very well with both singers having fab voices.

I hope they all enjoyed the evening too, and would you please pass this email on to both parties concerned and send them my thanks.
Thank you Graham/Gemma for all your help, and I know should the event arise, I will be in touch again.

Regards,

Sandra

Hi Alan,
I just wanted to send a (very belated!) note to say thank you so much for such a brilliant disco at our wedding a few weeks ago. We had such a good time and I think the music went down really well. In fact I think we were having trouble bringing it to an end – I certainly didn’t want it to finish! Ryan and I had a really special day and the disco rounded it off so well. I had very good reports from our guests too, saying they had a really good time and how good the music was so thank you again, and I’ll certainly pass your name onto anyone who needs a disco in the future.

Best wishes
Laura Tait (nee Mackay!)

——————————————–

…..Thank you for all you did and please pass my thanks onto everyone involved. I did speak with Tony and the band after and thanked them.

——————————————–

What I thought was really good was how many people you managed to keep on their feet and dancing when the band finished.

As you can appreciate I get to go to a lot of these events and I know how hard it is to maintain the enthusiasm and the interest of the party when the high fro the band starts to wane. I thought you did exceptionally well and was impressed by the numbers still up there at the death at 1AM. Very well done Alan.

Hi Alan

Just wanted to drop you a line to say what a great job you did on Saturday. Everybody had such a great time and many people commented on the music in particular.
Thanks for executing our playlist so seamlessly and also for the “killer disco” afterwards.

We said we wanted to dance and that’s exactly what we did-all night!

Finally, I would like to say that I would not hesitate in recommending Blacktiedj for any occasion.

Hope you got home safely.

Hi Alan
Just wanted to say thank you again for Djing at our wedding last month. You were great and everyone commented on how good the music was. Thanks for putting up with all the drunken requests from my friends! Also – thanks for letting me loose on the microphone at the end – I am a closet Whitney fan!
Thanks again

Hi Alan,
…………… the only person that needs thanking in this email is you, I have to say you were brilliant, better than we could have even hoped for, and I know everyone loved it. If any of the guests are thinking of getting married, I definitely think you will be getting some more business there!:)

Alan, thanks again for your excellent work, mate you made the evening a really fun night for all.
Cheers,

Hi,

I am writing a very belated thank you to the DJ who played at our wedding on 23rd July at Hintlesham Hall – I think his name was Alan. I’m afraid I didn’t get to speak to him at all on the day, but he very generously allowed the band to use his PA, and was very helpful throughout the whole set-up and sound check, which was a huge weight off my mind, with the band not having played together for over 4 years!

The whole day went very smoothly, and it was great to have the confidence to let the DJ get on with it, which took a bit more stress out of the day.

Please pass on our sincere thanks, and my apologies for not thanking him on the night.

kind regards
Edward (and Lisa) Sylvester

——————————————–

Alan, we just wanted to thank you for tonight, you’ve kept the dance floor full for 4.5hrs, and we’ve never seen that before. We’ve even had complaints from the guests, the music that you played have been great and they complained they haven’t had chance for a rest all night, thank you!

Comments received from Jenny and Sherard at the end of their wedding disco , The Cambridge Belfry Hotel.

——————————————–

To Alan,

Just wanted to say a big ‘Thank You’ for providing us with such a fantastic disco, it was clear to see that everyone enjoyed the music as the dance floor was so busy!

Thank you for playing the songs we requested. I will always recommend you to anyone who is looking for a disco.

As we left the reception we walked across the lawn and I could hear one of my favourite songs being played ‘True Colours’ it was so nice to leave on a high – it will always be a moment I remember, it was very special.

Thank you for the part you played in making our day so special.

Hi Alan,

Just back from honeymoon and wanted to say thanks very much for sorting out my wedding disco for Mark and I.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and so did our guests, judging from the stories we heard on the Sunday!! I was impressed by all the lights etc on your rig and the songs played were great. So sorry we kept you waiting so long to have our first dance!!!

Many thanks once again

‘Chris and I are writing, care of you to say a big “thank you” to Alan for our reception disco on Saturday.

Alan judged his audience perfectly bearing in mind it ranged in age from 3 to 79, and many people have remarked to us how good the disco was, most were very impressed with his smart suit, a pleasant change from the usual T-Shirt and Jeans!’
