My name is Chris and thought I would share a little bit about me. I live with my wife, son, dog, cat and a couple of fish. My business has taken over our lives somewhat and my family are all very supportive of what I do and assist wherever possible, my business truly is family run.
I have had a passion for music most of my life and in previous employment was heavily involved with weddings which I loved. It seemed a logical step to combine the 2, hence how I became a Wedding DJ.
My passion for music came from a very early age and I have always enjoyed a variety of types of music. My main passion is Rock music, with my favourite band being ACDC, but don’t worry your wedding does not have to be rock music related.
I was involved with weddings greatly when working in the hospitality trade over in the Lake District which is a gorgeous part of the country. Whilst working in hotels I became involved with the (almost weekly) weddings that were held and this also saw my first introduction into 18+ hour working days. Quite long days but very satisfying.
When my son was born I changed careers into retail, admittedly mainly for some more sensible working hours, but this was short lived as only 2 months into my new career I found employment in a local hotel, part time, again helping out with weddings.
Roll on a few years and the twitch to become more involved with weddings never went away, hence over time I developed my DJ business and after much training, learning and development branched out as a Full Time Wedding DJ. In the course of my career I have been an active member of the National Association of DJs (NADJ) even setting up a local branch for DJs to meet, learn and network.
I class myself as a wedding DJ as apart from Xmas Party Nights I only DJ at weddings. I do also have another tier to my business running Race Nights for fundraising and corporate events, which gives me the reassurance of being able to carry on working as a Full Time Entertainer.
Going forward I am continually learning how to improve and better what I do as well as learn about new ideas and upcoming trends. I like to think I am well known throughout not only the DJ industry, but also the wedding industry as a whole and have made many friends through my chosen career.
