“I was so impressed with them and we never even noticed them set up during dinner - very discreet. Andy and I spoke to Carl the sax player when we were waiting to come in to dinner - he couldn’t have been more relaxed or delightful.
I would highly recommend; they have been nothing but professional and efficient the whole way through the experience.”Anna & Andy - Wedding, Marquee, Alresford
“They were both brilliant and the music was hugely appreciated and enjoyed by all the guests, both young and old, at the dinner. We couldn't have asked for two better people and we are so grateful to you for making the arrangements which added so much to the evening. Would you please thank them both on our behalf.”Martin - Wedding, Marquee, Alresford
I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right DJ for that? Absolutely! James has DJ’ed at clubs and high end bars across London and the south coast. He backs up his formidable credentials with a deep love of old school vinyl, spinning multiple tunes simultaneously into something that is both unmistakably classic and entirely original. His unique vibe makes him the ideal addition to parties in hip city centre locations, or as an incredible way to end to your wedding reception.
Do you take requests on the night? Of course! DJ James has access to a wide range of music, so there can be something for everyone!
How long do you take to set-up? 90 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, he will often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around.
What time do you play and for how long? At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 5 hours of live DJ music, any time between 7pm and midnight.
What is the website guide price based on? The published guide price is based on me DJing at a venue within 30 miles of my base in Portsmouth. I charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hour drive, I charge a bit extra so I can book accommodation. For an accurate quote please contact Tailored Entertainment with your event date and venue details.
Can you provide music for our drinks reception or wedding breakfast? Yes - DJ James offers a Daytime and Evening package where he can provide background music during your drinks reception and/or dinner.
Do you have your own PA and lighting? Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.
Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that? Yes, DJ James regularly works at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment? Yes.
Will you play our first dance? Yes, as long as we have three weeks' notice of the song, James will make sure he has this downloaded for you.
How much space do you require? DJ James has played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2m x 4m.
How much power do you require? 2 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.
Do I need to provide food/drinks? Ideally soft drinks and a hot meal or buffet. However, this is certainly not a deal breaker so if you can’t provide this, just let us know in advance and James can bring food & drink with him.
