Reasons to book MrDeejay

Personal Service

Every booking with me is unique. No two parties are ever the same & your event is special. I will discuss every aspect of your party with you so everything will go smoothly.

Professional Quality Equipment

The last thing you need is for something to go wrong. I insist on using quality equipment known for its reliability and always carry backup equipment to make sure the show can still go on.

Performance Attitude

I am what is called an 'open format' DJ. That is to say I don't have any particular style or styles I stick to. I'm just as at home playing motown or soul as I am indie, house or dance music. Whatever moves the dancefoor, moves me & I strive to make every night a musical journey. I use the best equipment available to make sure there are no awkward gaps or jumps in the music & I strive to play music in an order so that it flows.


My grounding as a DJ came from bars & nightclubs packed to the rafters every weekend, selecting tunes myself as well as taking requests from customers & weaving them into the mix. I've performed at hundreds of weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries, corporate events & all kinds of parties. I absolutely thrive on satisfying you, my customer.

Online booking & music planning service

With my online system you can check the status of your booking, verify all your event's details and make music selections for dancing to way ahead of your special date. You can even make payments online too. Your guests can also request tracks to be played just by sharing a web link with them (though I much prefer requests made in the spur of the moment).

Fully insured & tested for safety

All of my equipment is regularly inspected & tested for electrical safety - not only that I have Public Liability Insurance to the tune of £10m and carries out safe methods of working

Other entertainment

I'm more than happy to collaborate with any other entertainers you might have booked for your function. I've worked with all kinds of bands, singers & other acts and will always be professional, with the ultimate goal of making your event run smoothly.

When you book me, you get me!

Some companies randomly select DJs from a pool, or they might use agencies - or worse yet post details of the job on a Facebook group for all & sundry to partake. When you book me, you really do get me!

About Mr Deejay

I've had a DJ career spanning over 20 years, performing at a huge variety of events & venues. From student nights in bars to full-on club nights, taking in mobile disco, pubs, bars & clubs alike I'm happiest when a place is rocking to the music I'm playing.

From my earliest days as a DJ my ethos has always been to take a professional approach to performing to keep myself several steps ahead of the rest. I take pride in every event, making sure I use the right equipment & the right media to deliver a stunning production.

I started DJing to public audiences back in 1988 when I played a disco for a Comic Relief event at a nearby school for free. Much to my amazement people were impressed & this ‘free gig’ led to other bookings & things snowballed from there. After a while doing that I was coaxed into a DJing residency in a pub every Friday & Saturday night in the nearest town. One thing led to another & I worked my way through the ‘food chain’ of venues until in 1998 I landed a DJing residency in Whitley Bay where I spent many happy nights entertaining crowds of 400+ people every weekend.

In 2015 I decided to return to my roots & become a mobile DJ again. Since then I've played hundreds of 'gigs' - mostly weddings - but I'm happy to apply my dedication & attention to detail to your event.

I'm very proud to say I'm the only recommended DJ at the awe inspiring Walworth Castle Hotel Darlington's only castle. I DJ most of their own events and at many of the wedding receptions held there.

It's all about the show!

Many mobile DJs are content to rig up some speakers & lights, switch them on & let them do their own thing all night. Not I - I've got everything covered to make sure my setup looks clean & tidy, All the lighting works in concert with the music I play whether it's a slow romantic first dance or a frantic rise & drop in a hands-in-the-air dance music track.
