We had Wayne as our DJ for our wedding in September 2019. From our first engagement with him, he was professional and attentive, responding quickly to our queries and helping us with our plans for the day. We gave him a very long play list of music that we like, which he managed to incorporate into his set along with some excellent choices of his own. He worked all afternoon and evening and had a fabulous charisma with the audience. The dance floor was never empty and he has a smile that lit up the room. A five star rating from us, we cant recommend Wayne highly enough. He was an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you so much. Take care, Delphine & Phil

Hi Wayne Please see below my review: 1. Professionalism - Wayne is a top class entertainment industry professional, his level of professionalism was excellent from the start of initial conversations about potential booking right up to DJing at the party. He was very personable and accommodating to requests we made as well as able to provide valuable advice when he saw fit. Wayne knows his craft and quickly understood the brief that he was set. In addition Wayne's time keeping was excellent and always responded promptly to emails and telephone messages. 2. Quality Of Music And Equipment - The music DJ Wayne played at the party was excellent and it was clear that he had read the room. I can honestly say that once Wayne started his session, the party guest went straight to the dance floor and remained on the dance floor right to the end of the party. Wayne's music was a very big contributing factor to the success of the party and in fact guests were saying to me this was the best party ever. The quality of the sound from Wayne's equipment was excellent and it is clear that he takes great pride in his work. 3. Recommendation - I will be happy to engage Wayne to DJ at any party or events I have in the future and I strongly recommend him. Many thanks DJ Wayne Smooth. Jason
