Getting the party started
An accomplished DJ with over 20 years' experience in the entertainment industry, I take pride in my proven ability to research and understand my clients' requirements, allowing me to provide a thoroughly personalised service that is slick, professional and organised and, above all... fun!
Remaining flexible and able to react on the night, "reading the room" as needed, I can ensure that you and your guests have a party to remember...
I thoroughly enjoy my job and am equally enthusiastic and energetic working small private celebrations (birthdays, anniversaries, wedding receptions and - of course - bar mitzvahs) as I am at commercial functions and stadium-sized events.
My corporate clients include The BBC, IBM, The Labour Party, Pepsi, CenterParcs, Jack Morton, Lloyds of London, Sainsbury's, Eurosport, HP, Sytner, Roche, Rolls Royce,The Savoy Hotel, The National Football League NFL , Colchester FC, Ipswich Town FC and Charlton Athletic FC, Essex County Cricket.

I am the first-call DJ for all National Football League fixtures and events in the UK including the massive NFL on Regent Street & NFL KickOff Piccadilly fan promotion in Central London and the NFL Summer Bowl festival. Game days see me playing the NFL Tailgate Party to an 80,000+ Wembley Stadium crowd at a pre-match "Fan Plaza" show that also features interactive events, marching bands, exclusive appearances by NFL Hall of Famers, cheerleading shows and performances by a variety of top UK rock and pop acts including as Def Leppard, Madness and The Saturdays.
Having shadowed regular match DJ Ray Castoldi for the past two years, the 2016 NFL UK season gave me the unique opportunity to perform my first solo "in-stadium" DJ performance. A huge and thrilling challenge, I provided the atmosphere, music cues and sound effects that are so much a part of the NFL experience for the Washington Redskins/Cincinnati Bengals game at Wembley with a record breaking gate of almost 85,000.
For the last three years I have also been selected by The BBC to DJ at their prestigious Worldwide Showcase at The Liverpool Echo Arena, a spectacular celebration of the broadcaster's global brands featuring stars and presenters such as Graham Norton and headlining musical acts, Backstreet Boys and Tinie Tempah.
Other regular gigs include my Thursday night residency at One Under Lime which, nestled beneath London’s iconic Lloyd’s building, has become one of the Square Mile’s hippest & most popular drinking & dining venues. As Well Fridays, Saturday Night 70's Disco In Soho at Poppies Fish & Chips Restaurant.
As well as a providing a stand-alone DJ role at private and industry functions, I have collaborated with other DJ's such as the legendary Tony Blackburn as well as with many of the UK's most popular live acts including Björn Again, Agent Orange, iPop, The Jive Aces, The Overtures, The Hollies, The Anthemics, Sing Out Sisters and SWAY,Ruby &the Rhythms,the Gatsby Band.
I frequently work on specialist themed parties, alongside tribute acts, karaoke shows or on my own, at events ranging from high school proms and Christmas parties to dedicated '80's or '90's evenings and northern soul weekenders... I even present my own custom made music quiz nights.
Whatever your requirements, whatever the size of venue, your musical preferences or the age range of your guests I aim to provide the perfect soundtrack for every event.
