Absolutely brilliant!

We were incredibly happy with Clayton DJ’ing for us at our wedding reception! The music was perfectly put together, he went above and beyond to really identify what we wanted and gave a brilliant service. Plus he’s a top guy, very easy to chat to, friendly and knowledgeable! Would recommend him to anyone!

Couldn't ask for a better DJ

Clayton was incredible. He worked closely with us throughout, put up with our terrible communication 🤣 and made the night truly incredible. We would highly recommend him to anyone. He was so friendly and had an awesome sense of humour.

Mr & Mrs Elliott

Clayton was very professional, arrived early at the venue and had everything set up ready to go at 5pm.
He had a huge number of song lists and played all the songs requested.
A 💯 percent recommended!

The dance floor was rocked!

As a garden party goes, it was epic. Lost voices from singing too much and sore feed from saving to much. The energy was on another level!

Amazing wedding DJ

Clayton was everything we wanted for everyone to enjoy our wedding evening! He played all the music we asked for and was so good when it came to communication - always ready to respond and nothing was a hassle for him. He was very professional and even turned up super early to make sure he was set up and ready to go.

In safe hands from start to finish

Thank you Clayton for DJing at our wedding yesterday. You went above and beyond getting to know us and chat to us before the big day, arriving early and getting the music going just when our guests were ready to start the party, playing numerous requests and a fantastic array of tunes! Thank you, Anna and Pete

Fantastic, very professional and pleasant experience.

From our first meeting right until the big day it was a pleasure working with Clayton as our DJ. He really took the time to listen to us and find out what we wanted and the vibe we were going for on our special day. He was brilliant at reading the room and playing the right songs to keep everyone happy and the dance floor full. We loved the pad left out to request songs with ease and the option of karaoke if desired. Also a really smart looking set up too that would fit in with any party, wedding or special occasion theme. I will definitely be using clayton again and highly recommend him to anyone.

True professional

Clayton would be my first choice or recommendation for all future events. Took the time to ask what my preferred music choices were and was willing to take song requests and even karaoke requests. The set list was a great mixture of genres that keep the vibe going through the entire party. Also a great lighting set up. All together a great friendly and professional service.

Our 1st anniversary celebration

Unfortunately we couldn’t have a wedding due to Covid and decided to have a party for our 1st anniversary to celebrate. And with the great service and music Clayton provided it was an awesome experience and the party a huge success and loved by everyone and we could have a special memory we missed out on during Covid
