Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

As a DJ I have always found that breaking the ice with the audience is absolutely key! As a DJ by breaking the ice with your audience they feel more relaxed and welcome which ultimately leads to a top quality party. I am well known for this skill and it is something not done my many other DJs

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I am predominantly in the Wedding Market and have played at some of The South Wests most in-demand Wedding Venues such as: Crowcombe Court, Quantock Lakes, Brympton House, Coombe Lodge, Holbrook Manor, Haselbury Mill, Elmhay Park, Orchardleigh Estate, Sandy Cove, Maunsel House, St Audries Park and Tunnels Beaches - Just to name a few!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I have not really been inspired by one entertainer in particular. I find it really useful to see performers from across the entertainment industry to see how things differ and where things are similar.

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

My most high profiled booking was a Wedding for a Premier League Footballers Family. Unfortunately I can't say who they were as it was a part of the booking agreement but it was a fantastic night!

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

We appreciate that no two events are the same and as such always discuss timings with the client beforehand. We understand that things can change in terms of timings. As long as you contact us a couple of weeks before regarding timing changes there should be no issue at all

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

You are more than welcome to create your own playlist of songs that you would like the DJ to play. Your DJ will ensure their set is exactly to your liking at can adapt their set around your requirements.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as we are ready to go we will start playing some background music and start building the atmosphere for the evening

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

Yes Absolutely! The DJs set will be based entirely around your requests and requirements

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes we bring everything! The only thing you need to make sure of on your end is that there is a power supply.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

The DJ can source any key songs that you require, such as the first dance at a wedding, before the event as long as you let us know in advance of the event.

Ben is an absolutely outstanding DJ and we cannot thank him enough for the atmosphere, fun and memories he created at our wedding. We booked Ben to DJ our wedding in February having considered a variety of options. From the start, Ben was professional, timely in his communication and organised. He was able to gage our taste exactly whilst perfectly reading the room and keeping the party going all night. Ben fit in brilliantly with our friends and family (I actually hugged him on arrival thinking he was a guest I hadn’t been introduced to yet!) and had the entire party dancing. What we loved most was his brilliant sense of humour and the fun he had. It really did feel like having a friend and guest DJ the wedding. I had so many people comment on how fantastic he was, the perfectly chosen music and the atmosphere he created. Several friends have even asked for his details for their own wedding. I can’t recommend Ben highly enough! Thank you so much – Gemma & Joshua
