The amount we charge is very much dependent on the type of service you are after.
Cost can vary depending on the necessary equipment and the length of show.
But, when providing a quote, we like to keep it nice and simple for you - with no hidden costs.
We also believe our prices are very reasonable for the service we offer.
We cover Bristol, Bath and all surrounding areas including Cheltenham, Gloucester, Stroud, Yate, Chippenham, Thornbury, Clevedon, Nailsea, Portishead, Newport and Western-super-Mare.
As a guide, we cover approximately 1 hours drive from Bristol.
Feel free to Contact Us> to check if we cover your area.
Our DJ's are confident and know how to speak clearly on the microphone. However, in our experience we find most guests prefer to enjoy the music without the DJ talking over it, and therefore keep DJ banter to a minimum - for making important announcements and for song requests etc.
Let us know when booking if you would like more interaction from the DJ.
An acceptable music volume level is to some degree down to the individual, but what is unacceptable is overbearing noise - biting treble and deafening bass. This is often caused by poor, unsuitable or incorrectly setup equipment.
We always provide equipment suitable for your venue and know how to set everything up correctly. Unless restricted by a sound limiter, we will make every effort to play music at a volume that we believe you and your guests will enjoy. Feel free to let us know if you would like us to change the volume level at anytime during the show.
For anyone not familiar with noise limiters, some venues have them installed to ensure that the volume does not exceed a certain level. They are more commonly found in venues that are close to residential areas.
The problem we have found with some noise limiters is not only do they not work well with live music (that includes karaoke), they enforce the volume limit by briefly cutting the mains supply if a certain noise level is exceeded. Should this happen, it will not only spoil your party, but could also permanently damage our equipment. Many DJ's and live acts refuse to perform in venues fitted with noise limiters.
In answer to your question, we will provide you a disco. However, the volume of the music will be limited to that of the noise limiter, whatever that might be.

You want your special day to be memorable and finish on a high.
What do you remember about the last wedding reception you went to?
How many guests are you considering to invite to your wedding reception?
Have you thought about what you will provide for the 4+ hours of evening entertainment?
When considering providing your own evening entertainment, have you thought about:
Sound - your hi-fi might sound great in your room at home, but is it really up to filling a wedding venue with party music?
Lighting - can you create a great party atmosphere with little or no lighting effects?
Music - You've got lots of songs you like, but what do you play and when do you play them? Will they appeal to all your guests? What about taking requests on the night?
Thought about hiring disco equipment? What do you hire? Who is going to set it up, who is going to return it? Is it suitable for your venue? How much?
Backup - What happens if equipment fails? Is that the end of your party?
Organisation? - Who will you trust to organise your evening entertainment?
A final note for those considering hiring just live entertainment. A wedding evening reception on average will run for approx. 4-5 hours. Live entertainment will usually only run for approx 1 to 2 hours max!
This is fine, provided we understand what the arrangements are with your live act beforehand.
We can provide most cables and vocal microphones should they require them.
All we ask is that our DJ controls the levels on the mixer.
We are happy to work with a live act if you decide to go with both.
In choosing between a disco or a live act however, discos are still the most popular choice for private parties. We believe this is for the following reasons:
Value - A good disco is likely to be cheaper than a good professional live act.
Choice in music - A good disco will be able to provide various types of music to suit everyone, rather than one particular style or genre that might not necessarily appeal to all.
Venue friendly - A good disco will work to the limits of the venue, providing equipment ideally suited to the space available. Some live acts may not even be allowed to play at your venue.
Extras - A good disco will not only provide the party music, but will also offer extras such as mood lighting / uplighting and background music.
If you would like to make a booking, and we have confirmed our availability for your date, you can download and complete a booking form from our site.

Every professional disco should have the following:
Public Liability Insurance (PLI)
PLI provides cover against damage to person(s) or property caused by proven negligence.
As a member of the National Association of DJ's (NADJ), we have a £10 million policy.
Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)
The Health & Safety Executive states that 25% of all reportable electrical accidents involve portable appliances.
The Electricity at Work Regulations place a legal responsibility on us to take reasonably practicable steps to ensure that no danger results from the use of such equipment. This in effect requires the implementation of a program of maintenance, inspection and testing.
We are happy to provide copies of our certificates on request.
Unfortunately, nearly all the parties we provide are for private functions, so regrettably it is unlikely you will be able to come and listen beforehand.
However, we regularly take photos and videos snippets, which are then added to our Gallery>.
We also encourage guests to provide Feedback>.
We are also happy to meet up with you beforehand to discuss your plans.
