10/10 would recommend!

Jimmy played the most amazing set at our wedding, such a great mix without being too cheesy. He incorporated our song requests totally seamlessly. The dance floor was full the whole night and everyone was raving about Jimmy and his bangers. I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking of having a DJ at their wedding, he certainly will not disappoint!

Didn't stop dancing for 4 hours

Jimmy was such an amazing DJ. He was really patient with lots of emails and Spotify playlists to discuss our requests, tastes and vetos (of which we had many). Music is very important to us and we were keen not to have a DJ that plays the same stuff you hear at every wedding/radio station. We were really pleased to find Jimmy who had a similar taste in music to us (funk, soul, rock, good pop, garage) and the dance floor was full all night (apparently all our wedding guests really love Common People). Catered really well to a mix of ages (and we can report he was faithful to the veto list when ABBA were requested and denied...). Also, his mixes were so fun (there was a mad Beastie Boys Intergalactic mashup in there somewhere) and he even played a Dadi Freyr Eurovision song for us as our first dance. I could barely walk the next day from all the dancing. Could not recommend more. Thank you!

Best wedding dance party!

Ryan was the absolute best DJing our wedding in July 2023! Several of our guests told us that we had the best wedding after party they'd ever been too. We had a fun throwback 90s/00s suggested playlist that we chatted through with Ryan twice ahead of time, and were having so much fun on the night that Ryan graciously agreed to extend the DJing for another 30 minutes. No one would leave the dance floor! Jimmy was also a gem to coordinate with, and everything was super transparent from start to finish. If you want to have a night to remember, you have to book these guys!

10/10 for our wedding DJ!

Ryan was an absolute dream to have as our wedding DJ. He took requests as well as keeping the vibe we wanted to for the evening. We will definitely be hiring him again for future parties.

Fantastic DJ!!!!!!!

We loved having Jimmy as our DJ for our wedding!!!!!!!! He was able to read the vibe so well, and made sure that we had such a fun dance floor! He has that amazing ability to read the room and play the exact song you were hoping he would play next. He is such a nice and very talented guy, and if you are wanting the best party on the dance floor for your wedding, Jimmy is definitely the one to choose!

Would recommend!!

Jimmy was the DJ at our wedding and he was brilliant from start to finish. The whole process of booking was super easy and we were really looking for someone who would get everyone up on the dancefloor but not too cheesy and Jimmy delivered this perfectly! Our dancefloor was packed all night and we had so many compliments about the music. Could not recommend more! Thank you so much.

Wow, what a DJ

Jimmy was outstanding and the dancefloor was packed at Bradbourne House. He managed to seamlessly intertwine our songs with a set list that left us all wanting more. Genius is a somewhat overused word but not in Jimmy's case. Thank you, Jimmy, for helping make our wedding day son wonderful.

100% recommend

I can't recommend these guys highly enough. We booked them for our wedding this summer and from start to finish they were a pleasure to work with. Booking through Jimmy was a breeze, and things were set up just as we wanted them to be. On the night, James played a blinder - he really listened to what we wanted and played tunes that got all the generations up dancing, without being too cheesy. We had so much amazing feedback from our guests about how much they enjoyed his set. He contributed massively to a night full of happy memories for us. Thank you guys so much!

Brilliant. Would highly recommend Jimmy.

Jimmy was absolutely brilliant. Before the wedding he was responsive, friendly and professional. He understood exactly what we needed throughout the day and was able to accommodate this. He spoke to the venue directly to arrange logistics, which was extremely helpful. He was also genuinely interested in our musical tastes. On the day itself he was fantastic. It was a blistering hot day in August and we had outdoor space available, but even still he kept the dancefloor packed all night. He perfectly blended our tastes with the mood of the dancefloor, and everybody commented on how great the music was. We couldn't have asked for better and would highly recommended Jimmy.

Fantastic!

Really great experience with these DJs for our Wedding. Jimmy was the the DJ at wedding, and made it a really great party. Worth the booking fee as really enhanced the wedding and kept people dancing to end. They accommodated some specific requirements but knew the best songs to play and the music was so good. Also really good sound & lighting!

No Stress, just Great Music from a Great DJ

Jimmy and Festival DJ's played for my wedding in Oct '21. Ours was a COVID wedding which had to be postponed twice before happening third time round. Jimmy has been fantastic at communicating throughout the entire process. He's been amazingly accommodating because of COVID and the we did eventually have him play for us he did exactly what we all needed after 18mths of Lockdown, he brought the life, the energy and fun. Playing everything we asked for and mixing it perfectly into an awesome set that kept everyone dancing and having a good time.

Our guests have said how great he was, how chatty and approachable and that he was definitely the best DJ they'd had at a wedding. We can't thank him enough for all his support through dealing with a COVID Wedding. He was a pleasure to work with.

Best wedding DJ ever!

Jimmy was brilliant! We are so pleased we decided to go with him for our wedding music. He didn't play anything too cheesy, just hit after hit, and a good mix of older stuff for the mums and dads and more modern stuff for the younger crowd. He was always quick to respond to emails and so flexible and adaptable given the annoying Covid restrictions we had to juggle with. Everyone commented on how much they loved the music. We would recommend to anyone!

Fantastic DJ

Jimmy was a fantastic DJ at our wedding! We couldn't of asked for a better selection of tunes to get everyone on the dancefloor. The communication was clear and easy. There was no fuss at all on the wedding day. I couldn't recommend Festival Wedding DJs more!
