About Alt. Entertainments

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

Ian was fab. Really professional and judged the mood of the event perfectly. We'd definitely book Ian again for our next bash.

"Ian was able to read the crowd perfectly, the music felt personal and the whole experience was awesome. We even talked him into a cheeky encore haha, could not rate high enough for the service provided. Thanks for helping to make our day even more special!"
