    What can i say ! Ashley & Platinum Disco’s made our day so so special ! From the minute we booked for our wedding we knew we had the best ! From start to finish it got better and better and better !! He transformed the hall into a fabulous disco light show and i do believe it made hall look 1000 X better with his up-lights ! This guy needs 10 Stars because 5 Stars don’t come close to how he made our day so special, all my guests loved his choices and danced the night away ! Thank you Ashley, will be happy to recommend you and will deffo be booking you again !!! Willie & Patricia McPhelim xxx

    Danny and I had an absolute blast at our wedding last night with Ashley in charge of the music. He managed to get our guests of all ages (16 to mid 60’s) on the dance floor. Ashley is a lovely, laid back guy and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a great DJ.

I offer a wedding planning meeting, then on the day you will get a top quality Dj and disco plus any other optional extras that you’ve ordered. I have a huge selection of music and I play requests. I have a beautiful disco which can be all black or all white.

How far in advance should I contact you?

Bookings are taken on a first come first served basis I have bookings up to 4 years in advance. I’m extremely popular and average 3-5 weddings per week!

What style of music do you offer?

I have been told I have the biggest music collection in the UK. So I can play almost anything from as far back as the 1920’s yo the latest chart hits. I can play and call ceilidh dances and I have a wide selection of music from other countries too! I also have classical music for during the meal and ballroom dances too! If you have any unusual requests you can send them to me and I’ll make sure I have them.

Type of musical group:

I usually perform solo but with bigger jobs I’ll bring my roadie. Usually when I’m providing a dance floor or photo booth or a particularly big disco.

Size of musical group:

One.

Repertoire:

My music collection is so huge I can play anything.

Is it possible to request something that is not in the repertoire?

I welcome playlists in advance and requests on the night.

Experience:

I started to Dj back in 1976, since then I’ve done every type of party possible and I’ve also played in clubs in the UK and all around the world. This makes me very well travelled and very flexible and adaptable!

Do you have your own equipment?

Yes, I have the very best of everything and I carry a full backup set of equipment to every gig. Even very expensive equipment can go wrong. I have triplicate cables, a backup laptop and an iPad and several phones plus spare lights and speakers. It’s nice to know that if I had a technical problem that you’d probably never even notice!

Are you able to travel?

Yes, I love to travel and see places I’ve never been to before. My travels have taken me all over Scotland and onto some of the islands off the west coast and I’ve recentky started doing lots of gigs throughout England too.

Is there a charge for travelling?

The price I quote always includes my travelling expenses except ferry tickets and overnight accomodation which I will research and let you know. I only need overnight accomodation if the gig is really far away or has a very late finish.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

No, as of 2019 I’ve returned to just working on my own. I do have Dj friends who would cover my gig if I was off sick though

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

As of 2019 it’s just me.

What is the length of time of the act?

A typical night is around 5 to 5.5 hours. I’m happy to play longer but this will incur an additional charge. I do lots of all day weddings where I play your ceremony music, music during your meal and provide microphones for speeches plus the disco at night.

How much time do you need to prepare for an act?

I like to have an hour to set up. This is usually how long it takes a hotel to do room turnaround if your meal is in the same room as your evening reception. I like to arrive very early just to make sure I arrive in plenty of time and in case of traffic etc.

Do you charge per hour or per event?

Per event for the first 5.5 hours and then hourly.

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours

Yes, at an additional cost.

How do you charge for extra time?

Yes.

What are the forms of payment?

I accept cash, bank transfers and cards through PayPal.
