Personnel

I have been involved with mobile Discos since leaving school. I started as a roadie for a friend which involved setting up packing down, operating the light's and occasionally taking control of the decks.

Then rolled on the millennium it had been a few months since I had anything to do with Discos when I had a phone call from a friend. There was a venue in Cannock that was looking for a DJ for the millennium new years eve party there was only a couple of month to go and everyone was booked up. DJ's had come out of retirement just for this one night. My friend asked if I could help he had spare equipment and he was confident that I was capable, I was not so confident but reluctantly I agreed. Well that's where I first got the bug, within a couple of weeks I had negotiated with my full time employer an early bonus and purchased my own setup. A few friends and agencies soon started passing me work, then venues starting asking for me by name.

I have always had a very varied taste in music even when I was in my 20's one day I'd be listening to Rock N Roll the next I'd be listening to Hip Hop.

I enjoyed almost 10 years of DJ'ing and then came the family, being out most of the day Saturday and to tired on the Sunday was not good for family life. I held onto my Kit and occasionally did the odd family party.

As the children got older they thought it was cool having a dad who was a DJ, following a surprise party for the mother in law I thought it's time for me to pick up my CD's and start again.

So who am I ?

I am a family man who is very proud of my children and has a wonderful supportive wife, I am a very successful Business Systems Manager in my full time job & I am a DJ who loves seeing the dance floor full & takes his hobby very serious.

Please get in touch and I will do my best to make sure that your night goes well.

I am an experienced DJ for all your special occasions, from children's Parties and teenage Discos through to corporate events, weddings (we all love the First Dance), anniversaries and birthdays Party's. I can cater to all ages and also offer our Disco and DJ hire for themed events and social sporting events. Whatever the occasion, your guests will be delighted.
We normally work in Hotels, Golf Clubs and Village halls, but have been know to play in all sorts of places including once a Barn (a real one not one that had been turned into a house).

If you are looking for a traditional family disco with a an assortment of music from the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, 00's and up-to-the-minute Current chart music then you are looking in the right place.

Our aim is simple, Get you up dancing and keep you on your feet all night. at an average party our music adventure is quite likely to include the following: rock n' roll, Sinatra, Elvis, Beatles, Wilson Picket, 70's, Abba, Candy Staton, Sweet, classic 70's disco funk, Wild Cherry, Bee Gees, Quincy Jones, 80's disco, Michael Jackson, Kool and the Gang, Chic, new romantic, Human league, Soft Cell, Nick Kershaw, kajagoogoo, Duran Duran, 90's piano house, hip hop, R&B, House, funky house, tech house, pop, rock/indie, drum n' bass, grime, dubstep etc. right up to the current chart content and end of the Party cheese all mixed together.

But if you are looking for something a little different that's not a problem it wouldn't be the first time I've been asked to play Rock Music, Hip Hop or R & B all night. I have also been the support act for a number of bands etc. Please ask I am sure I can help.

If you are looking to book any DJ for Christmas or New Years Eve, I'd advise to book early as it does get a little busy.

We arrive at least one and a half hours before the start time, to set up and I will need one hour to pack away at the end, if you need us to set up earlier in the day that's not a problem & quite normal for wedding discos.

We only use professional Lighting and sound equipment and are fully insured and our equipment is PAT tested for your safety.

As with all modern DJ's I operate Professional DJ'ing Computer Software but I also still use CD's as I cannot seem to break the habit. I always use 4 speakers and two amps, that way I get the extra power when needed and this also allows for peace of mind that if something should happen the nights not over.

"Karl was absolutely fantastic! He had a wide range of music choice and the lighting effects were brilliant! We especially loved our first dance with the smoke machine! It made the moment feel so special. Thank you so much Karl! Highly recommend!"

"Excellent music from Karl at our son's 21st birthday. He selected great music for the mixed age groups and was extremely good at reading the crowd and playing what they wanted to dance to. He happily took requests and we all had a fabulous time. I would highly recommend hi is services."
