About Funky

Public liability insurance of £5 million

We’ve been operating for over 25 years and growing all of the time, and all of our DJs have one thing in common, we all love a GREAT PARTY! As each party requires something different from a DJ, and equally, each DJ has something different to offer, that’s where Funky Disco's & Karaoke comes in. We will find out from you exactly what your party is all about, and what you want from a DJ and disco. We’ll then select the right DJ from our team to come along and set up a high-quality sound system, with a light show and special effects, and play your very own choices of music (at your selected volume) in order to create the perfect atmosphere for you and your guests. We know that reliability is without a doubt one of the biggest factors when considering which DJ and disco to book. We are very proud to say that we have 25 years of experience behind us and a 100% reliability record in all of that time too! We have the required PAT (Electrical Safety Certificates) for all electrical gear, and PLI (Public Liability Insurance) which all discos need. Many venues will ask for copies of PLI to be sent through in advance. We will be happy to send copies either to you or direct to your venue upon request. During our 25 years of providing entertainment, we’ve built up the knowledge to be able to send the right member of our team of professional DJs to suit each and every party we do, and also to be able to still provide a disco if the unthinkable were to happen! We have a full backup plan in constant operation. This includes spare equipment in the unlikely event that any of our high-quality equipment were to go down. All of our vehicles have breakdown cover too, so in the very unlikely event that we were to break down, we’d have roadside assistance, and even get towed to the booking if we couldn’t be fixed at the roadside! We also always have backup DJs available to us to cover absolutely any eventuality. We have countless ‘Thank You’s and testimonials from happy and satisfied customers. If you’d like to read what other people have said about us, please take a look at our Reviews.

Kevin from Funky Disco arrived with plenty of time to set up for my dad’s surprise 60th party, played all the music I had asked for and any requests taken on the night. Would highly recommend for a function. Thanks Kevin!

Just want to say a massive thankyou to the team at Funky Disco's of whom we booked for a 50th Party. Music was perfect for the room. Gets a 10 from us and will book for future parties and possibly a wedding
