How to Book

Please take a look at my Prices and Packages to decide which products and services you require.  Feel free to give me a call for a chat about any special requirements.

Please note that I do get many advanced bookings so I advise to book and reserve your date as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

 

I also recommend that you have a quick read of the booking advice below as this contains useful information and may save you from falling into one or two common traps regarding venues and entertainment.

 

Once you are ready, please contact me with details about your event and your requirements and I will check for availability and take some details.

You can contact me by phone, email or Facebook or use the enquiry form on this web site.

 

If you decide to book with me I will email you with details of your booking and how to pay the deposit to reserve your date.

I require a deposit of £100 to resrve DJ dates or if you are booking the dance floor it is £150.  The balance is due 10 weeks before your event.  If your event takes place within 10 weeks I require full payment.

Payment information is here on this page should you need it.

 

I will be happy to meet up or have a chat with you to finalise the details of your event such as music preferences, timings and other features.  This can take place any time after you book although with weddings it is usually better nearer to the big day as most of the arrangements have been then confirmed.

 

I provide you with a written confirmation letter with details of your booking.

I have all certificates and insurance that your venue will require and they are here on this page to view or download.

 

For your peace of mind I am a member of the National Association of DJs (www.NADJ.org) who among other things can provide cover in an emergency.

However in over 10 years I have never let anyone down on a booking.

Cancellations and Refunds

Should you need to cancel your booking please let me know as early as possible.

If your booking is more than 16 weeks away I will genrally be happy to refund your deposit.

Cancellations within 16 weeks will only be refunded if I get a replacement booking for that date.

All refunds are at my discretion to allow for various conditions.

Booking Advice

As I attend many parties and celebrations, I often experience clients having problems with their venue or arrangements during their event, often due to certain venue policies not being brought to the clients attention at the time of booking.

Here are a few brief tips on things to check when you book your event.

 

TIMINGS

Please ensure that your venue allows a minimum of 1 hour for a DJ to set up and the same to pack down.  More time is required if you also have other products booked such as a dance floor or Uplighting.  Ideally I like to allow extra time so that I don't have to rush and have time to deal with any tecnical issues or delays.

 

MUSIC VOLUME

Check that your venue will allow you to have the music as loud as you require. Some venues have residential complaints or have sound limiters that cut off the power at a certain volume.  You may not want it really loud but I have played at parties where the talking on the dance floor is louder than the music and the clients have not been allowed to turn it up, making it hard to create a party atmosphere.

 

SMOKE MACHINES

Most people and venues misunderstand the proper use of smoke machines so they simply say no - I don't want smoke - or - it sets off the fire alarm.

If you want a really good light show, book a venue that will allow a little smoke to be used.  If you would like a nightclub atmosphere then smoke is essential.

I have very expensive lighting fixtures that look amazing with a little smoke.  Without it you can't see the light beams....just dots on the floor and walls.

Smoke is harmless water vapour and it only requires a little to make the lighting effective.  Professional theaters and music venues are all equipped to allow smoke to be used. Sadly most event venues just find it easier to say no.

If your venue will not allow smoke and you don't mind that..... save your money and book the smaller lighting rig which is easier to set up and has a simlar effect without smoke.

The photos below show the difference between smoke and no smoke.

My Facebook page features photos from the many events and services that I provide.

Please give me a like.
