Best party disco ever!
It was my 50th birthday party and a secret wedding surprise too, and Southwestdiscos provided the best entertainment. The music was fantastic all night, and I was the first on the dancefloor and last to leave! Great service from John throughout and I’d definitely use Southwestdiscos again.

Everyone says our wedding was the best they've been to!
We booked for John to be there the whole day and I am so thankful we did. John took away all our worries by playing the music during the ceremony, playing music during the meal, running our speeches and giving us the most amazing Evening Reception. From our first dance to the last dance, there were people on the dancefloor, it was never empty. When there were moments the dancefloor went quieter, John played a classic to get everyone back on the dancefloor. He read the room perfectly. Thank you John for making our Evening Reception so amazing!!

1000% recommended!!!!!
I cannot thank John enough for how amazing and special he made our day and he is such a lovely person through and through. He even got involved helping the photographer with some tricky smoke bombs!!! He really was fabulous. He obviously listened during the speeches as the music played really reflected what had been mentioned on the day. My walk up the aisle was perfect and he takes so much time beforehand for a quick call from a stressed out bride to make sure everything is in place. I also want to congratulate John as he was married two days prior!!!! I knew the lights and music would be good, but I honestly didn't expect it to be as amazing as it was. He also supplied the photo booth and the girls working on it were kind, fun and really got our guests into the spirit. We got to speak to John at various points thoughout the night and he was calm, friendly and just an absolute pleasure to have there on the day. 5/5 isn't enough, thank you John for everything!!!!

John was a really pleasant fella, he put me and my wife as ease and was a massive help. He was prompt with all emails and answered all questions leading up to our big day, we would recommend John to other couples and families on there special occasions. Had all the music we requested and even went through the trouble of downloading a very hard to find song me and my wife requested, Thanks
