About Dave

Dave runs his own business during the week and at weekends he works for Essex DJs. Dave started DJing in the 1970s with a friend when mobile DJing was still in its infancy. Their show was called Moonraker disco and they used turntables with vinyl records and a basic lightshow. They played at weddings and birthday parties for friends at local venues. Dave then had a long break away from DJing to start a family and concentrate on his full-time job. He returned to DJing when Essex DJs began in 2003.

Dave is reliable, punctual, professional, and forms a great rapport with his clients. He is very accommodating, has a can-do attitude, and always gives 100%. Dave is a great researcher of music, he sources music on the internet and watches music channels to keep up to date with recent chart music; something which every DJ should do more often.

Dave is a formidable party DJ; a real powerhouse; a heavy weight. It’s all out attack with Dave! Subtle and cool this is not! We are talking Cheese, Party, 60s, 70s, and Rock n Roll. Dave goes for it early, he is great at filling a dance floor early on and even better at keeping them there. It’s all about the anthems with Dave, he loves party music and singalong anthems. He’s pretty good at picking out the odd Rock track too! Dave’s style is all about momentum. Once the first revellers are on the dance floor Dave keeps them there then, gradually building momentum, Dave picks up the pace and volume culminating in a crescendo to finish the night on a high!

Dave’s strongest musical genres are: party, cheese, 60s, 70s, 80s, rock n roll, soul, motown, rock, pop, and chart music.

The events which Dave would be most suited to are: weddings, anniversaries, engagement parties, and birthday parties (age 30 upwards).

“Please can you pass on a big thank you to Dave the DJ for making my party on the 16th December a blast everybody kept dancing the whole night”

Dave's Feedback

“A big thanks for last night at Prested Hall.
We had a small number of guests compared to normal, but I can honestly say the venue, lighting and everything about the Oak Room setup and music was perfect and exactly what we wanted. “
