What is your most memorable wedding?
There are so many to choose from... one of my most memorable was on the cruise ship "The World" which is like a floating tax haven. At the end of the night I played the James Bond theme and a speed boat sped to a berth on the lowered down stern of the ship, the bride and groom jumped aboard and raced away into the night to huge cheers from all of the guests.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Friendly, Professional, Fun, Stylish, Versatile
What about your business are you most proud of?
The many excellent reviews from delighted customers as that is the real measure if you have succeeded or not and the quality of my sound and lightshows.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Spend money on the things that are going to be really noticed, appreciated and remembered by you and your guest.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Wedding monograms of the bride and grooms names and married initial projected onto the dancefloor or walls with the whole room up-lit in their wedding colours. Also Impressive lightshows that wow the guests for the evening party.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I would meet up with the bride and groom to get to know them and find out exactly what they wanted for their wedding. I would find out their music tastes and talk about special moments happening throughout the day. I would offer suggestions and give ideas from my past experience backed up with examples on video to show how the ideas can work on the day. I would find out all of the key names on the top table and work through all of the timings in detail so everything can be taken care of so they can relax and just enjoy their brilliant day. I also encourage the bride and groom to submit a "request list" and a "do not play list". It might just be a few tracks or genres as guidance or it could be a comprehensive list of 60 tracks. I would spend several hours organising the list between background music and sets for the main dancing in the evening. This is important as I believe that really personalises the day to the bride and groom giving them a memorable soundtrack for their big day.
What makes a romantic first dance?
I believe a romantic first dance is a track that is very special to the bride and groom, it should be their track which will be an emotional, unforgettable moment when it is played. I do advise couples to double check the lyrics on google first as it might be a lovely tune but it could be about breaking up. It would be too late if you suddenly realise half way through your first dance.
What is your number one floor-filler?
This one changes all the time as the charts change but currently tracks that fill the floor with mixed ages are Uptown Funk, I Gotta Feeling and the latest Latin tracks in the charts. There are of course so many classic tracks that always fill the floor like Mr Brightside... where do you start... there are too many awesome tracks to choose from!
Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?
I could probably narrow it down to 50 including The Who, The Stones, The Killers, James Brown, The Jacksons, The Black Eyed Peas
What is the soundtrack to your life?
Another difficult one as I like so many albums and styles of music. I will try and narrow it down to 3 which is still almost impossible. "Thriller - Michael Jackson", Legend - Bob Marley, You've Come A Long Way Baby - Fatboy Slim, One Love - David Guetta, Quadrophenia - The Who, Bat Out Of Hell - Meatloaf, True - Avicii. That's 3 isn't it? I still haven't touched much on house, swing, R&B, Motown, Northern Soul, Latin, Disco, Garage, Rock, Pop ... it's impossible, I give up!
