About Alt. Entertainments

Music Matters At Alt Entertainments what makes a party is good music first, then everything else.
Public liability insurance of Β£10 million

I started DJing in 2003 and started DJing professionally in 2007 in an indie club in Wolverhampton. in 2011 I Started my own company of which I specialize in Indie music & weddings, I now play all sorts of pop music in some of the UK's best wedding venues. I've always felt that music makes an event (well that or food) but while food is a great way to get people to come people stay for the music. I think a good DJ should be able to go off-script and really experiment to get the best reactions.

Customer questions

How much time do you need to set up?

In an ideal world, 2 hours setup would be fantastic however we don't always live in an ideal world, in a pinch anything between 45 minutes to an hour and a half is plausible depending on the setup, and load-in.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! everything you need and more.
