DJs and Bands' hints and tips for throwing a party

Years of experience has taught us how to make your party go with a swing – hopefully these tips can help you too…

Here are some useful guidelines for your event!!

Only cater for 75% of your expected guests

It’s not often we see all the food gone at the end of the night, in fact we see around 25% thrown away or re-boxed as everyone heads home.

Try to book a venue where the DJ or band will be playing in the same room as the bar

It’s a sad fact but if the bar is in a different room then so will most of your guests.

Get on the dance floor yourself

you can’t expect your guests to flock to the dance floor if you’re not on there yourself, no matter how much the DJ tries.

Try not to be too niche with your music/playlist for the DJ or band

You may love heavy metal but not everyone at the party will. We always try and play a good mix so all generations have a great night. Trust the DJ and the band to play the right music at the right time.

Make sure you book the right start and finish times

the prices we quote are based on the times you give us. If you’ve got it wrong on the night you could be charged for additional time.

Client Testimonials

"We booked DJ Lee for our Nephew's 18th Birthday party and the whole process was quick, simple and clear. More importantly, the actual event was complemented by DJ Lee's ability to read the crowd and put the right music on at the right time to keep the party in full swing. The equipment was of good quality and a nice surprise as we were not expecting some of the lights"
"Great music, great DJ, super professional, would recommend over and over! Love DJ Lee"
"Was recommended DJs and Bands by a friend and have now used them twice. First time we had a DJ only and he was fantastic, knew how to keep the party going and played some great tunes. Second time we had a band and a DJ - quite simply it was the best party ever!! The live band played 3 times and the DJ kept the mood flowing in between. I would recommend!"
"Professional, well priced, superb mix and friendly service!! Booked through DJs and Bands for my wedding and it was superb. Many thanks!!!"
"Great music all night long, everyone had a great time. Thank you so much"
