ARutherford DJ was a wonderful addition to our summer rooftop party, providing a diverse range of tunes for our customers to enjoy while sipping cocktails. He was professional, enthusiastic and created an idyllic vibe for our large outdoor social event. We would definitely use this service again!

Alistair DJ’d our garden party this summer. Absolutely brilliant from start to finish. Got the vibe spot on from the chill house music as people mingled through to the dance music later in the night. The setup was great with excellent sound and lighting.

We booked Alistair for our wedding and my only instructions were play some bangers - our lot love to dance. My gosh didn’t he just - what a night!! Absolutely epic!! Everyone loved it - someone even asked if we flew him over from Ibiza!! Alistair - we can’t thank you enough for helping to make our wedding magic!! My feet were the only things complaining the next day. Can’t wait to throw another party to book you again !!

Alistair played over two nights first was a rehearsal BBQ with requests for Ibiza chill mixes - his play list was fantastic! Everyone was commenting on how good the DJ was. The second day was the wedding reception we provided a play list and genres - he really made it his own with brilliant mixing, dance floor was full all night long, he even managed to work in two sets of Portuguese music. With Alistair the music takes centre stage, he doesn't talk over the tracks and he looks like he loves what he is doing. He is clearly passionate about providing the best possible experience. Super easy to work with. Highly recommend him and we would use him for events in the future.

Alistair is an incredible DJ. It was no easy feat finding a DJ in the west midlands who was confident playing Afrobeats and Caribbean music a long side other classics but Alistair was perfect. Our wedding guests could not stop raving about how on point every set he played was. He captured exactly the vibe we wanted from ceremony to evening set and it got every single guest on the dance floor. I will recommend him to anyone who listens! He is excellent and his lighting setup gave the perfect ambiance. Thank you so much Alistair!

Literally the best possible DJ we could have asked for. We’re an alternative couple who love Metal, Hip-Hop and Indie music, our friends included folks who are into EDM, R’n’B and Garage and a lot of our friends and family are much older and prefer Soul, 80’s and Motown, a tall order for any DJ and yet EVERY GENRE WAS COVERED. The dance floor was full for the entire evening with banger after banger being tailored so well to us and our guests that it was jaw dropping. Somehow he managed to play a tonne of tracks that would have been obscure at other weddings, but were pitched perfectly for us. Afterwards, pretty much everyone who we spoke to commented on how amazing the DJ was. We literally cannot recommend him enough, an absolute master of his craft and an extremely nice, pleasant and easy fellar to work with.
