Pricing for evenings only based on a ground floor entrance for 7.00pm to midnight is between £175 and £400 and can range up to £400 to £600 depending on the hours and set up you are looking at having for your event.
Every event is different so this is subject to location, consultation and site visit so the prices shown are a guideline and may be subject to travel fees.
All of my prices are the same regardless of whether you are booking for your Wedding, a corporate event or birthday party. They only alter based on distance to your venue, whether an early set up is required or additional staff are required due to access.
I work as a solo trader so am the only member of personnel involved.
I am a National award winning DJ, TV & radio presenter and Master of Ceremonies based in Southport primarily covering Cheshire, Cumbria, The Fylde Coast, Lancashire, Merseyside, North Wales, Staffordshire, The West Midlands and Yorkshire, incorporating major towns and cities across the North West of England including Blackpool, Liverpool, Manchester, Preston and Wigan.
During my twenty years as a DJ I have covered events across the United Kingdom, both as a mobile DJ and as a club DJ, hosting many Corporate Events for large name companies and organisations including Argos, Budweiser, Matalan, the National Association of Head Teachers and World Cheerleading Coalition (ICC Ltd).
Starting in 1997, I spent six years as a Party Bar/Club DJ before going onto a holiday camp where I was Entertainment Manager for three years. In 2005, I returned to club work and went mobile in 2008. I have worked as a full time mobile DJ for nine years covering Weddings, Birthdays, Anniversaries and many other special occasions, whilst obtaining qualifications in sound engineering, radio and television presenting and event planning.
I have an established background in the entertainment business. This background includes event management, local radio and television along with my work as a party DJ.
My work has featured all types of venues from nightclubs to shopping centres and at all types of events from Weddings and major Corporate Events to School Proms and Race Nights.
With my experience, working across the UK, I have the brilliant ability to judge the right style of music and create a great atmosphere by combining all genres of music with an outstanding professional microphone technique, which ensures my work is of the finest quality around and I continue receive outstanding reviews and repeat work from previous clients.
Through my work and training for radio, television and outside broadcasting, I am a very confident public speaker so you can be assured that you are getting the very best when it comes to any important announcement.
Having built a music collection covering all genres, with thousands upon thousands of songs, from the 1940s right up to the current chart and forthcoming releases, I like to think I always have something for everyone at your event.
I have worked in all types of environments from large scale night clubs and corporate events to holiday camps and children's parties and pride myself on being able to choose music for all different occasions and situations as well as taking on board your tastes in music.
My DJ career started in 1997 working as a trainee at a north Wales night club before establishing myself as a resident within a month.
By picking up tips and ideas from leading DJs, my work thrived and my residency at Scruples/Club Zinc led to it becoming one of the leading night clubs in Wales - winning a double Welsh Music Award for best pre-club event and best small club venue in 2000.
During this time, I established myself as a lead DJ on community radio station Shore FM going from overnights to daytime presenting within a two weeks - including an interview with HRH The Prince of Wales in 1999.
With a new management team in place at Scruples, I was quickly given spots in sister clubs in Manchester, Liverpool, Wrexham and London.
After spending two years on the road DJ-ing, I was offered a new challenge as an Entertainment Manager at a holiday camp. This opportunity allowed me to gain new experiences in a new environment where I would be able to learn valuable managerial and event planning experience.
This change of roles was in sharp contrast to the 90s 'club scene' but allowed me to broadened my scope on the different tastes in music and entertainment people wished to have gaining valuable experience over a three year period.
I believe music knowledge and people skills are key to being able to be a successful Wedding and Corporate DJ and this experience is one I have found to be crucial for my career.
In 2005, I returned to working within nightclubs to help establish a new venue, a challenge which allowed me to bring the knowledge acquired as an Entertainment Manager and assist with promotional business advertising.
After four years at the club, I decided to put my family first as, with the change to licensing on bar and club opening times, working until 4am or 6am did not seem fair on my family.
Since 2008, I have worked free-lance covering numerous events across the North West covering Weddings, Birthdays, Anniversaries, engagements, race nights, children's parties, school proms and more.
Having worked at major nightclubs, in management and in the media, I have established myself as a leading mobile DJ in Southport and the North West and ensures that I use top of the range equipment for both sound and light at all events to give your occasion the WOW-factor.
From high quality sound to controlled lighting and spot-lighting for your first dance - I offer a service than cannot be rivalled for quality and professionalism.
I have hosted Weddings, Corporate Events and special occasions at many established venues including Southport Floral Hall, Blackpool's Grand Theatre, The Vincent Hotel, Royal Birkdale Golf Club, Meols Hall, West Tower, The Royal Clifton Hotel and Spa, Ramada Plaza (Southport) and Hurlston Hall (Scarisbrick).
I have covered many large scale events including Sportsman's Dinners and Award Ceremonies working alongside star names including the late Bernard Manning and Howard Kendal and Everton FC legends Graeme Sharp and Kevin Radcliffe.
These events include World Cheer Coalition (ICC) Northern Cheer and Dance Championships, The National Association of Head Teachers' Annual Dinner and Dance since 2015, WorldNET - Europe's largest football supporters' tournament - for four years since 2013 and 'Le Classique de Danse' Awards for sequence and ballroom dancing at Southport Theatre and Floral Hall, for which I have been highly commended by organiser David Bullen.
I have also worked alongside headlining singers and bands including The Informers, Tommy Barron and Pretty Girl Rock along with numerous official tribute acts to artistes such as Bruno Mars, Olly Murs, Take That, Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue and Tom Jones.
For charity, I have represented Rock FM as part of their Cash For Kids charity campaign by hosting a 12-hour marathon DJ session in 2013 and, in all, my charity work at events has seen me help to raise in excess of £50,000 for local and national good causes including Clic Sargent, Queenscourt Hospice, Cancer Research, Zoe's Place, MacMillan Cancer and Liverpool Royal Hospital.
My equipment is fully PAT Tested and I have Public Liability Insurance of up to £5million.

I can also provide:
Karaoke - £30.00 Over 12,000 songs across many genres from major UK karaoke suppliers including Sunfly, Zoom and Mr. Entertainer. Supplied with four radio mics for singers to cater for everyone. It is highly recommended if your event has a large selection of singers rather than dancers, however, if you are looking to have a full dancefloor all night, it is a good idea to have a finishing time for karaoke or, alternatively, use it later in the evening if you know you don’t have a dancing crowd. It only takes one awful version of Frank Sinatra or Robbie Williams for your guests who don’t like karaoke to use it as an excuse to leave.
Uplighting - £150.00 for 10 uplighters or 15.00 per light thereafter The uplighting can be in any colour (or colours) that you would like and I colour match as close as possible to your colour scheme. Uplighting is part of the Gold Package.
LED Mirrorballs - £40.00 (pair) Based on the old-style discotheque mirror balls, these new state of the art lights give a great effect to your first dance and can change colour from white after the first dance if you wish. LED Mirror balls are part of the Gold Package.
Starcloth Curtain - £50.00 A 3m by 2m back drop which can give a beautiful effect to your room. It isn’t as lavish as the new white lace ones with drops but will be upgraded during 2018. The star cloth curtain is free standing so can be placed as a backdrop to your DJ, dance floor or as an area for guests to take photographs. The star cloth backdrop is part of the Gold Package.
LED Dancefloor - £400.00 (Your dance floor will be supplied by a private company) I know I mentioned not having one earlier, but if you like the look of them I hire in a white twinkle-light dancefloor which can be any size up to 16’ by 16’ and is professionally installed by a private company on the morning of your event.
Inflatables/Props - £150.00 I can provide props and inflatables for your event. These can also be great fun and amusements especially when used for selfies and general dressing up as the night goes along (and the alcohol kicks in!) and it can work out cheaper than a photo-booth. These include inflatable guitars, microphones, wigs, hats, oversized glasses, feather boas, selfie sticks and a personalised printed Instagram style frame.
Personalised Monogram Gobo - £120.00 A personalised monogram gobo can be a lovely lighting feature which can be displayed all night. As the projection unit is self-standing, it can also be used in different locations of your venue. The monogram can include your name(s), celebration and date. It will always be checked with you before ordering to ensure that you are happy with the image that will be projected. The gobo itself is professionally manufactured from either glass or metal rather than the cheaper option of printing onto plastic, which can melt or overheat during an event. After your Event, the Gobo will be framed and sent to you as a memento of your day at no further cost. Your Personalised Gobo is not ordered until your full payment is received.
