‘Just a short note of thanks. We had a fantastic day and the music was excellent. Both Casey and I were amazed seeing the entire wedding party packed on the dance floor, thanks to the great DJ!’ (Jim Scott, wedding in the Cavalry and Guards Club)
If you hire a DJ for your event, what do you most want? The majority of our clients say they’re looking for someone who will get their guests up and dancing and having a great time. They want entertainment – whether it’s a DJ for a wedding, corporate event or birthday party. Seeing guests dance and really enjoy themselves means that the DJ has done their job properly. They need to spin the classics and crowd-pleasers, but not just be predictable and play a compilation playlist that you could have made yourself. Great mixing, choice of tracks and order of songs is what will really make a big impression. It’s not easy to DJ like this – it takes lots of experience as well as pleasure in the job.
From the Olympics to London Fashion Week, the premier of the ‘Sex and the City’ film to private celeb parties, our DJs are highly experienced and love to put on a great show.
At Liquid Strings, we’ve handpicked our DJs and only work with a select few. We chose them for their experience, ability to read the room and their high level of service. We fully guarantee availability upon booking and will manage all the communication between you and the DJ. You may want a long chat with them about exactly which music you like and the type of atmosphere you’re looking to create for your event. Or you may just want to submit a few song requests. Either way, we’re here to make sure everything runs smoothly. The price of your DJ is also a factor so we have a mostly two-tier system of DJ cost – our standard rate and then a couple of higher costing DJs for really exceptional entertainment.
Our DJs have played in hundreds of venues through the UK and also internationally. We are always happy to liaise with the venue on your behalf after booking to check the logistics and finer details. We understand that venues can sometimes be apprehensive when they have outside suppliers in, so we can talk them through how we work, reassuring them that we’re an established agency with more than 10 years experience providing DJs for parties, weddings and corporate events. We can also provide testimonials from previous clients to back this up. Our DJs all have modern, high-end equipment, ensuring that they are always up to date with new technology as it rapidly evolves. They are smart, polite, punctual and happy to take requests – both in advance and on the night. Aware that they’re providing a professional service at all times, they are interested in getting to know what music you love – which songs to play and which to avoid. Like us, they love to see happy clients at the end of every unique event.
Unsure of whether to go for a band or a DJ? We also have a great act that spans both options. A superb DJ on the decks who spins the best tunes whilst being accompanied by live musicians – a selection of electric violin, percussion, singers and sax players. It’s a great option if you’re looking for something slightly different from the usual. It’s also fun and interactive with the live players on the dance floor helping to encourage your guests to let their hair down and just have a good time!
For a corporate event where branding is important we also have a fantastic visual DJ who plays LED drums that can trigger images on big screens and show off your brand or new product. And of course DJ lots of fabulous records to bring the event to life whilst communicating your brand at the same time.
Over the years, we’ve hired DJs for events in London, Surrey, Hertfordshire, Kent and Sussex (one of our DJs is based in Brighton). And internationally also – most recently a fabulous wedding in Jamaica and corporate event in Switzerland. Some of the venues that our DJs have played in for Liquid Strings include Claridges, The Savoy, The Dorchester, Home House, Mandarin Oriental, Heythrop Park, Pembroke Lodge and the Savile Club.
A superb DJ can make all the difference between an average and stunning event. So, make an enquiry today to hire one of our fantastic DJs!
