Apart from being a brother from another mother, I can honestly say gary was the best DJ I have ever experienced. Given a tough set of musical tastes to please from Abba to Motorhead , gary did a superb job of keeping everyone from 8 to 80 happy. He also paid plenty of attention to the party fading in and out beautifully as various party events randomly arrived . Great night made by a great DJ highly highly recommended.

DJ Garry really knows how to bring the energy and get the party going! Garry played at our wedding alongside a saxophonist and all we've had is great feedback about how amazing the dance floor was. It was like the dance floor of a night club in Ibiza! Is a super friendly guy, really approachable and flexible. Made our wedding evening an absolute night to remember, not only for my wife and I but for all of our guests too - thanks again Garry, can't recommend you enough!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My obvious show of love for the music & the element of surprises I constantly feed in with the different styles I play & it probably has to be the fact that experience has tought me to be eclectic in my taste of music,it's actually the best method to keep everyone entertained,I get told that quite a lot really.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

My journey has taken me from 50 local venues & Grand Hotels in Derbyshire to recent Agency Bookings far & wide up: Wakefield Cockley Wood,Tarporley Willington Hall, Manchester Victoria Warehouse,Hope Under Dinmore Hampton Court Castle,Leominster Cider Barn,Clitheroe Stirk House Hotel, Clitheroe Browsholme Hall,Prescot Knowsley Hall,please see my vlogs

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Fatboy Slim I suppose, There's too much to name tbh,please get in touch and I'll tell you as this changes on a daily basis!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I've gigged for Goalie 'Chris Maxwell' & friends which included 'Billy Bibby' from Catfish & The Bottle men... of-course I played one of his hits for them!...I've yet to top that I guess,I've been lucky to play in the 3rd Earl of Derbys Stately Home & a 15th Century Castle.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I am very flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event, just let us know!

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes in short,my DJ Services can provide pre event background mood music to post event,please contact me to discuss your requirements

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!”

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Yes, I highly recommend a Spotify playlist if possible. This makes sure the correct song versions are chosen for the event. This is done prior to the event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes! Everything is included... every genre of music too! Nothing is left aside to be sure last minute requests from the guests will remain a possibility.
