Ian DJed our wedding and it was perfect. Everyone told us afterwards how amazing the music was and that it was just the perfect playlist for a wedding. We would happily recommend him as a DJ for any wedding.

We used Ian for our wedding evening reception and would highly recommend. Ian answered all my questions quickly and I was very reassured that the playlist he compiled would not disappoint! Ian provided a professional service throughout and all guests had an absolute blast! I would highly recommend Ian's disco, thank you again we will never forgot it!!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My enthusiasm, my receptiveness to requests and ability to blend genres to try and cater for everyone in the audience.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Roman Baths, Assembly Rooms, Pump Room and Guildhall in Bath. Orchardleigh House, Frome. Egypt Mill, Stroud. Silk Mill, Frome. Homewood, Freshford. Cadbury House, Bristol. Manor House Gold Club, Castle Combe. Post Barn, Snelsmore House, Newbury. Wick Farm,Farleigh Hungerford. Filton Golf Club. Landsdown Golf Club. Caswell House, Brize Norton among others.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Probably supporting Sigala at Bath Spa University's Summer Ball in 2022

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

Not a problem - if your initial timings have changed just contact me to let me know so I can adjust my arrival time to ensure I am set up before the event begins.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually require around 60-90 minutes to get all my equipment loaded in and set up. Ease of access to the venue and function room along with other factors such as stairs or lifts need to be taken into consideration also as this can impact on the time it requires me to set everything up - I'm a sole operator and load everything in myself.

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

I have a music spreadsheet containing over 15,000 which I send to all my clients on booking which you can use as inspiration for any requests you'd like to make. I'm happy to play from a playlist that you provide or to go with the flow and take requests during the event, we can discuss particular music choices leading up to the event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I bring all my own sound and lighting equipment, pictures and videos of which are available if you'd like to see them in action from other events.
