Hyde Park – London

Hyde Park London - On 7th Oct, I DJ'd in Hyde Park for Great Ormond Street Hospital, I think its such an important charity to support. The event was a fun run and attracted over 4,000 entrants, which meant I was DJing to about 10,000 people. On stage with me at the beginning was Vernon Kay who went on to take part in the race itself.     The team at Great Ormond Street - London seemed happy with what I

Purple Turtle – Reading

Purple Turtle Reading - DJ'd at an amazing 40th party in Reading a few weeks back. The theme was 80's -90's indie - remixed chart music. The venue Purple Turtle could not have been better, great staff, sound system and overall vibe. Really enjoyed playing there. If you are thinking of having a party and live near Reading, then I would certainly consider having the Purple Turtle as a venue. Here are a few videos and playlist from the night.

Putney Pies Party for Rusty Egan – Visage

Putney Pies - Having worked alongside Rusty a few times it was a privilege to be asked to DJ at his birthday party in the amazing Putney Pies by the River Thames on the suburbs of London. There were plenty of colourful characters all with a love of music, from Rusty himself, who was the man behind the New Romantics scene to Martin Glover AKA Youth who was the producer for the Verves "Bitter  Sweet Symphony" and the Orb. It

VJ London – at The Roundhouse

VJ London - Talk about coincidences, I went to see Guy Gerber at Destino when I was working out in Ibiza in July. While there got talking to his VJ about the software he was using as it was Resolume, the same as I use. The following morning a friend asked if I wanted to see Guy play in London later that year, too which I said yes if I was free. That lunch I went to see my friend

Ibiza Sept 2017

Ibiza  Sept 2017 - This Sept in Ibiza followed on from the time I spent out there in July DJ at various Ibiza weddings. Pikes with Rusty Egan from Visage for the Freddy Mercury Party, we were followed into the box by Sister Bliss from Faithless, followed by Mathew Bushwaka. Last year this party had been voted second best party on the island next to the final Space closing Party, so there was a lot of expectation. On the Tuesday

Farnham Castle Wedding

Farnham Wedding at Farnham Castle such a great venue for a wedding and one I always enjoy DJ at. Farnham Castle is a stunning castle wedding venue, it combines rich heritage with a contemporary atmosphere making it one of the most unique places to get married in Surrey. The couple were from Argentina and Austria and they had a traditional and very formal Argentine style wedding. The gentleman where in black tie or military uniform and the ladies in evening dress and

Polo Gold Cup After Party

After winning the Gold Cup an incredible Jaeger-LeCoultre Gold Cup final for the British Open championship King Power Foxes came back to The Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club to celebrate and Party. I had installed a big 10,000 watt JBL / Crown powered sound system and a mixture of lighting 8 moving heads 3 lazers and a couple of smoke machines. Turned out to be a great night as usual, I cant wait for the Cool Hooves Polo Festival

70’s 80’s & 90’s Themed wedding

70's 80's & 90's Themed wedding at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond. It was a first time I have had a musical theme such as this for a wedding, and it worked really well. Having a big (in wedding terms) crowd of 150 helped as well. Starting with the 70's and ending with 90's meant it covered the tunes form the youth of the majority of the guests and because they new that this was how I was going to play

The Mill Elstead – Wedding

  The Mill Elstead - Wedding.  The Venue is a great place for a wedding, not too big as some can be and very friendly staff. The Groom told me he had been given one job to do for his wedding and that was to get the music right. When the bride came up and give me a big hug and said I had made the day for her, it was mission accomplished. They wanted the night to be in

Royal Holloway wedding

Wedding at Royal Holloway  - This was a long day, but a great wedding. I played three sets and helped with keeping the brides and bridesmaids dry as they got out of the wedding cars and into the beautiful chapel at Royal Holloway, Egham. The first set was a chilled background one with background during the pre-dinner drinks.  This set was 2 hours, I then went to my next set-up in the picture gallery to play a jazzy / ratpack
