Customer questions

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

I always try to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change in the run up to the event just let me know.

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

N/A

How much time do you need to set up?

It depends on the package booked. Generally, where PA and lighting is included, it can take 60-90mins. For DJ-only bookings, it normally takes around 15mins, but I always aim to arrive at least 1 hour before set time for sound check and to ensure everything is ready for me to deliver a performance of the best of my ability.

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

You are very welcome to send through key song requests. Given my experience, I am able to cater to a variety of crowds and situations. Quite often, the songs you may request or expect are those which I will play anyway. However, I am happy to see your playlist ideas in advance.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes. There are different packages available: DJ-only, wedding packages, corporate packages, etc. Some venues can supply or enforce you to use their in-house equipment. It's worth checking this before deciding whether to request a DJ-only or package quote from me.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If it's a genre of music you feel is outside my remit and needs to be learnt then I would be happy to do so. I thoroughly enjoy learning new styles of music and always keen to push my knowledge.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

- Always smile - Cater to the crowd - Friendly - Accept requests - Respectful - the event is about the client and their guests (i.e. wedding couple, company, charity, etc) not the DJ :)

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Many of the top luxury venues in London and SE England. This includes hotels, banqueting suites, prestigious members clubs, event spaces, nightclubs, bars, etc. For example: The Dorchester, Hilton, Grosvenor House, Mahiki, The Box, Tramp.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

BOB SINCLAR CALVIN HARRIS DIPLO DJ FUDGE EARTH WIND & FIRE FRANKY RIZARDO GREGOR SALTO JAMES BROWN JAY-Z JUDE & FRANK JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE LAIDBACK LUKE LIKA MORGAN MARK RONSON MASTERS AT WORK MICHAEL JACKSON NILE RODGERS PHARRELL WILLIAMS PRINCE PURPLE DISCO MACHINE QUEEN RHYTHM STAIRCASE ROGER SANCHEZ SERGIO MENDES VIDYA VOX

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

The best DJ and music entertainment group around. We've been honoured to be at a number of wedding and reception events but HV Entertainment are head and shoulders above the rest. They were highly receptive to our requests and were able to remain adaptive, proactive and cater to our specific needs. Even with the event timetable changing, they were so incredibly supportive and ensured that us as hosts were as relaxed and as calm as possible. The DJ himself - DJ Vik also liaised with other suppliers to help ensure a seamless evening which is of course outside of what is within his remit. Harj is one of the easiest people to work with - he is so relaxed, calm and incredibly helpful. The number of times that he went out of his way to meet us, take annoying phone calls and help us with song choices was unbelievable. HV entertainment provided the backing music for our wedding which was absolutely incredible - they were able to accurately capture the mood and atmosphere and keep everybody engaged. They were even able to do this outside in extreme weather conditions and still maintain the sound quality. The reception had no issues at all in terms of music or visual quality (videos or pictures) and had the most energy I've ever seen for party. The dance floor was constantly full - we even had to remove some tables to create more space! Even a week after the event our guests are still raving on about HV Entertainment and have requested their contact details. People are still feeling the aches and pains after having 'never danced so hard in years' - and this is coming from professional dancers! DJ Vik is excellent at identifying the crowds mood and mix in all kinds of tracks ranging from old school garage, afrobeats, bhangra, Bollywood, hip hop, rnb, cheese - you name it. The mixing was amazing and flowed unbelievably well. The extra bonus is that they're truly truly value for money - for the quality of the day and the service they provided, I believe they are worth at least double to what we actually paid. Top team, top entertainment - would use their services again in a heartbeat!

I have worked with Vik for over a decade and seen him grow to become an outstanding, professional, smartly-dressed and dedicated DJ. He really is excellent at crowd-reading - one of the most important skills for a DJ to have.
