A few pictures from last nights event at a venue that is commonly known as the Riverside. However, it now has a new name, The Ashcroft.
I have worked at The White Hart Inn at Lydgate a fair few times over the years as a Wedding DJ. Here are a few pics from this weekend.
Two weddings in the same venue this weekend, what a blast, but I’m completely exhausted now. A little rest for a and back on the horse on Thursday, or should I say back on the decks! A real pleasure to work along side Wayne Farrow, Spectre and Andy Lee
I have worked at the Sandhole Oak Barn a few times, lovely staff and a very nice venue with tranquil surroundings The function room is fairly long and I have often pondered over the idea of adding wireless speakers towards the back of the room in order to distribute the sound more evenly, especially important when making announcements. Having said that, guests do have refuge from load music towards the back of the room and being able to find the extra time to set more speakers up may be a challenge if the event is a wedding due to room turnaround times. The venue does have a pesky sound limiter, but it is set at a fairly reasonable level which is unusual for a venue that has a limiter fitted. Certainly a great place to host your event and I look forward to working here again.
It was a real pleasure to work along side London based band ‘Herringbone cocktail club’ at Heaton House Farm
A big thank you to the brand new Mr and Mrs Setna for entrusting my services for their special day.
Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Beeley! Tuesday evening at Didsbury House Hotel. This place is one of my favourite hotels in the Manchester area and although a small wedding venue in terms of space to dance, there are plenty of other rooms for guests to enjoy and relax during their visit, including the garden, side rooms and bar. It’s well kept, the staff are friendly and very professional, and apart from working at here as DJ, I have also had the pleasure of staying here once, loved it! My room had twin bath tubs!

As there are now signs of lock down being eased, I dusted off the cobwebs to practice my mixing skills on the decks, like riding a bike, you never forget. For those who appreciate dance music and the skill of mixing, here's a few tunes to get your groove on and remind you there was once a life where people packed dance floors creating new memories and living for the moment! Fingers crossed, the good times will roll again very soon

It's currently a very difficult time for anyone working in the events industry. The last time I worked was back in March 2020 and there seems to be no end in sight at the moment. I look forward to seeing all my clients when the world returns to some kind of normality. Most of this years events have been postponed and this must have been especially difficult for those who have been planning their wedding for such a long time. All the good times and celebrations from the past now seem like a dream, perhaps the world has changed forever only time will tell. Until we return, keep the dream of making new memories and magic moments with friends and family firm in your minds. As the great Freddy once said "the show must go on" and I'm sure it will, one day :(
