Absolutely Brilliant

Got the dance floor filled at the beginning and even as the night dwindled down kept changing the vibe to suit those dancing and kept us going until the end, ending the night with our first dance song and gave us the chance to dance with our family! Amazing!

Adaptable and Fun

The set and lights he brought were lovely and the room we were in for the disco looked great. The music kept everyone dancing all night and we had a range of everything we were after

Excellent DJ services - great tunes and easy to work with!

We had Ryan DJ at our wedding at the start of September and he was a pleasure to work with. We arranged a couple of meetings with him in the run up to our wedding and he was always happy to chat and understand what we were looking for in a DJ.

On the day itself, he was fantastic - he read the room perfectly, ensured a good mix of songs and genres throughout the night (particularly once the older guests had left!) and didn't stray into cheesy wedding DJ territory. He was also really flexible too, for example we weren't sure if we were going to have a first dance and he was happy for us to decide closer to the day.

In short - excellent customer service, fantastic services on the night and great value for money too.

Bloody excellent!!

Ryan read our guests likes in music! Our dance floor wasn’t ever empty and in fact I danced for 2 hours non stop on my wedding day!! Ryan also played the piano whilst we ate - also excellent!! I’ve never been to a wedding where folk actually say how fab the DJ was!! Ryan won’t let you down - the night was absolutely amazing, none of that DJ talk down the mic and an awesome mix of music keeping our guests dancing all night! We had to open the doors due to the heat in the venue because of us all dancing!! Blinking awesome!! If you want a DJ with a difference Ryan is your man and his ‘roadie’. Thanks Ryan for making our afternoon and night ‘the absolute business’

The price below was for 2.5 hours of piano and a full night of disco

Great communication, piano playing and DJ!

Ryan was fabulous before the ‘big day’ in explaining the options available to us. He was good fun and relaxed, played lovely piano during first half of event (even to our old piano teacher) and played the right songs in the evening to keep the dance floor full - mixing things up when needed. I would enthusiastically recommend Ryan to anyone needing a wedding, or event, DJ!

Absolutely superb!

Ryan, Danny and Mark are truly fantastic at their job. We had Daniel for our evening music / DJ and Mark who played the piano for our ceremony and wedding breakfast.

Ryan, you have a fantastic team of people and we are so grateful to you all. Mark, your determination to get our song for walking down the aisle just right was incredible and how you played the entire time our wedding breakfast was on was phenomenal and created the perfect ambiance. We really are so thankful that we had you there on our day.

Danny, you energy on the night and getting everyone involved from little ones to the 'big kids' was fantastic.

Thank you so so much to all three of you. You were all amazing and made our day so special. We will absolutely recommend you all. Shell and Phil
