Guards Polo Club

I have been booked to play several Sunday afternoon's again at Guards Polo Club for their DJ and Steak After Party - Where I will be working alongside Mosimann Catering who will be BBQing some amazing rib-eye Tomahawk steaks and other delicacies. These exclusive occasions are great fun are sometimes attended by the Queen and other members of the Royal family.   Here are a few examples of the kind of music I played at the first event. One Step

Ibiza 2019 opening parties

Ibiza 2019 - I like to keep up to date with what is going on in the music and party scene and one of the best ways is get to the exclusive opening parties on Ibiza. Going over early May before the bigger clubs open and all the tourists arrive is a cost effective way of achieving this, Easyjet flights are inexpensive and hotels have deals so its win win. Blue Marlin was full of clubbers rather than the normal

21st in Derby 04.00 finish……..

Derby DJ 21st - This was a great brief, drive to a farm in Derbyshire, set up for the after party, then go to a nearby restaurant and set-up for the meal. My set times would be 20.00 till 12.00 at the restaurant and then 12.30 till 04.00 at the after party. As this was a bunch of ex-Repton girls I knew they would be lasting the course, which they did in real style - as one would expect....... Here

Aures London is an amazing venue space under Waterloo Station set within a beautifully restored 2,000 sq ft exposed brick arch.

Nineties party 40th birthday

Nineties party 40th birthday - The brief was that the client wanted a 90's rave but maybe not all the guests would appreciate going too heavy too soon, so it was a case of reading the floor and getting everyone onside. "Just amazing- Paul did 5 hours for my 90s themed 40th and got the crowd dancing all night. Thank you!" ”Thanks so much for last night. The messages are already rolling in about how good the music was, apologies

50th Party in Surrey – Reggae Ska and a bit of 80’s

50th Party in Surrey - Reggae Ska and a bit of 80's. I was approached by the Head of School at Surrey University to DJ at her 50th after a recommendation from her students, which was nice. After having a chat on her musical preferences this was definitely going to be an interesting gig..... The request went like  "an 80’s theme- mostly dance, I was never a Duran fan!  I was more mod into ska back then which progressed to

18th birthday Salomons Estate Kent

18th birthday Salomons Estate Kent - An interesting gig this....... Mum had arranged a surprise 18th birthday for her son and said according to his "mates" his fav artists where Post Malone, Eminen, The Weekend (Who I DJ'd with a few months back) and Two Door Cinema Club. Turns out his "friends" where joking and he is mad about Tech House..... Fortunately I have a rather good selection of tunes from my time in Ibiza and playing in clubs and

Secret Escapes at the Hilton London Bankside

When Secret Escapes gave a conference at the Hilton London Bankside  and wanted a DJ to create an Ibiza bar vibe, guess who they contacted....... The brief was that they wanted me to create a vibe, but not get people dancing. They wanted people to converse in a chilled relaxed atmosphere. This is what the client had to say the next day "Thanks for a great evening, was exactly what we wanted."     This is what I played...... What About Now?

David Bowie’s birthday

To celebrate David Bowie's birthday Boy George wanted to do a night of new interesting music with electro-pop three piece We Are Brando at Scala in London with their dark dance-orientated sound. George went under his alter-ego The Twin. The music was a mixture of new wave, new disco and electro and the crowd flamboyant with a lot of the 80's crowd from the Blitz. In our group was David Shilling the world famous hat maker and Marilyn was with us

South Coast Corporate fun

After last years successful event at Centre Parcs, Bunzl - Greenham decided that this year they would hold their conference at Butlins in Bognor.  I have to say, I was blown away by the facilities there, both for the guests and entertainers. This was a full on production, the theme was casino and they had variety acts and singers during the meal and then from 10.00 till 01.0 it was myself and the casino tables plus the odd bar or
