We had Karlton for our wedding at Pendrall Hall recently. Just what we wanted. Great music, kept the dance floor busy all night. Everyone had a fab time. Really professional both on the night and during correspondence before. So glad we booked you and would definitely use next occasion we need a DJ.

We had DJ Karlton for our wedding last week and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. He was amazing from start to finish, punctual and accommodating. To top it off he was a lovely man too! The guests loved him. I would highly recommend DJ Karlton for any event and will use him again in the future. Thank you Karlton!! X
