The DJ is fully insured, and has had over four years musical experience, playing at a variety of events, from pub gigs to University Balls, birthday parties to weddings.

However, the DJ's selection of classics and modern material is extensive, so he is able and willing to tailor a playlist to customer requirements, or respond to requests on the night.
