About Dave Elmer - Drop That

I've been DJing for more than 40 years and my passion is entertaining people, getting everyone on the dance floor and keeping them there!
Public liability insurance of £1 million

I can turn my hand to most musical tastes and have a vast collection of many genres. I have played at Cheltenham & Stroud Jazz Festivals and DJ'ed at events in Amsterdam, Paris, Croatia & Palma. I have recently been resident DJ at the exclusive No.131 Hotel in Cheltenham playing 5 hour sets of R&B, Hip Hop and Dance. I am often booked for weddings and like to speak with potential clients about their event requirements to make it special for them. I have a good eye for the dance floor and making it tick and am totally in my element when I'm on the Decks and love to get the crowd going making sure I read the room to give people the best musical experience. I have had regular radio shows on community stations and currently have a weekly Internet radio show on Soulpower Radio on Monday nights. My personal tastes and radio selection is Jazz, Afrobeat, Soulful House and World Music.

Customer questions

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

I’m very flexible and as long as you can give me decent notice period of changes I can adapt.

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

Yes of course. Again we can talk through your requirements for the event. At the end of the day it’s about you feeling happy with what I have provided.

How much time do you need to set up?

I would probably allow an hour as long as there aren’t flights of stairs or access difficulties. Once the system is in it won’t take long. If you’d prefer it set up prior to the event starting we can discuss that too.

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

Happy to take a selection of musical choices from you. Let’s talk about what you require on our 1st meeting and what I can offer.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes I have all the equipment I hope you need. Anything specific we can discuss.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Won’t affect me as a DJ but should be able to access all the music you need.

Dave was great, from the chats beforehand, all his equipment and breezy setup. A perfect soundtrack for a great night.

Watching Dave Elmer DJ is truly witnessing a master at the top of his game. If ever a DJ could take a crowd by the scruff of their neck it is Mr Elmer. His musicality is unrivalled, a walking musical encyclopedia in fact . The combination of knowing the right song to play at the right time and that engaging personality when a microphone is required makes Dave as versatile as an egg. At the event Boxes 42 in Exeter he took a mid afternoon crowd who were being tempered by daylight and sobriety and lifted them into the kind of excitement usually reserved for 1am. Dave played 2 superb sets, filled with crowd pleasers and interspersed with the cheeky engaging banter that has become his trademark. During his evening set he lifted the already excited crowd to even greater highs via expertly selected bangers and his warm interactions with a crowd who were clearly well and truly on his side. I would heartily recommend Dave Elmer as a DJ, someone who has clearly honed his craft through the years, an experienced, expert and enthusiastic performer who really is a cut above.

We booked David for an event earlier this year. David was a delight to work with from start to finish, excellent communications prior to the event, he asked all the right questions to ensure his set was on point and he could deliver what we wanted, it’s the little details and preparedness that matter. Davids set was perfect, he understood the sound and the vibe we were looking for, his selections and programming were excellent, he kept the room moving all the way through his set. We would definitely book David again. Regards Darren
