Playing the music you and your guests want to listen and dance to is just the beginning of what we offer. Music should be played at a volume that you and your guests are comfortable with, a quality selection of lights to help set the mood and build a great atmosphere plus we can also provide karaoke for some added fun. We also can provide a radio mic for speeches and special announcements and make sure the evening flows as the MC for the evening’s events i.e. announcing the buffet, the band etc.
A disco is the perfect choice for a wedding reception either with a band or as the sole entertainment provider. We can cover many genres of music and change the pace and tempo of the evening at the click of a button so catering for all of your guests what ever there age or musical persuasion.
When performing with a band or other artists we can keep the party flowing while the artists take a break, we can provide back ground music before the band takes to the stage, and can conclude the evening in style with your personal favorites.
All audiences are different, and a lot of what we play will depend on ‘reading’ the audience and watching the reaction on the dance floor, no DJ, however experienced, can predict an exact play list in advance of your own function since musical taste is as individual to each person as their taste in food, drink, fashion etc. The ‘reading’ of your guests only comes with experience.
It is traditional at Wedding Receptions, for the Bride and Groom to have the first dance, and this usually signals the start of the evening’s entertainment. If you have invited Evening Guests, who may not have attended the actual Wedding Ceremony, then it is often advisable to leave the first dance until the majority of the guests have arrived, and suitable background music is played during this period. An ideal time to start the first dance is just after the buffet this gives your guests time to arrive, it gives you (The Bride & Groom) time to mingle and allow the atmosphere to gradually build.
We ask the Bride and Groom to choose the first song, one that has become there very own tune and means something very special to both of them. Sometimes a second track is also requested. The second track is usually played and dedicated to the Bride and her Father, or for the happy couple to invite their friends and relatives to join them on the dance floor.
We always invite all of our clients to provide a play list, ahead of the function detailing any special requests they may have which we will always try and include during the course of the evening, or more importantly any songs or genres of music to be avoided.. We do ask that this request list is kept to approximately twenty tracks, to ensure continuity and for us to incorporate the requests of your guests.
At Weddings, or indeed any function with a mixed aged audience we usually try and avoid anything too specialised, or Genre’s such as heavy metal, rap, trance and underground dance music unless specifically requested by the client (where they believe that it would be appreciated by their invited guests).
We would always advise you to allow some flexibility in your choice of music for a couple of reasons.
We do try to tailor the music to the age range of the audience, and so if you do have an audience consisting of mainly younger guests then the play list will be tailored accordingly, and exactly the same for older age groups too. However we do find that most weddings encompass age ranges from the youngest children to the most elderly of great grandparents, this being the case we endeavor to play a little something for every guest again making them feel involved in your special day.
