Solar Powered Wheelbarrow Disco Totally Retro Ecotainment
Thanks very much for this opportunity please let me tell you a bit more about myself. As well as a compere, educator and activist I am an eco-friendly DJ who has been providing sustainable social-lubricant since 2007. I play classic 7" records, plus digital music, and blend that with upcycling and renewable energy. I have an extensive collection of vinyl spanning 5 decades of dance PLUS TV themes & random eclectic tunes suitable for any occasion. This creates a chic & sustainable mobile disco with modern performance/ vintage vibes.
There are two main DJ'ing options depending on what interests you - it's also possible to combine them both. I have an award winning Full-On Festival creation called Tip of the Pops solar-powered wheelbarrow disco. It mainly plays classic 7" vinyl records and can pop-up anywhere. The basic sound system consists of an upcycled suitcase that is suitable for around 50 guests. This act can be walk-about, warm-up or the main event. I can even do a popular kids disco with bubble machine and nursery rhymes.
Secondly, Tip of the Pops Too the totally retro revolution is a replica old-school disco. This also plays classic 7" vinyl records but with the addition of digital tracks meaning that you can be more specific with the playlist. The DJ booth is an original retro-bar from the 1960's and the sound-system is 1000 watts Yamaha for 100 guests or more. The replica disco also comes with dance floor and ambient lighting for the evenings entertainment. This set-up is 100% solar-powered, off-grid from May - September and does not require mains electricity to party.

Can't express how amazing Lee was. Started our evening wedding reception with his brilliant wheelbarrow disco, then finished through his sound system. The lighting was everything we would have wanted and the service first class. Would definitely book again. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend! Lee provided the music for our wedding - a disco set from his solar-powered wheelbarrow during the afternoon and then a brilliant set in the evening that had everyone dancing. He understood exactly what we wanted, made it happen and brought so much fun to our day. Our guests loved it!
