More than just a DJ

VINTAGE DJ

Music and a feel from a bygone era but the vibe lives on.  I have a great collection of tunes from the 1920s forward through the bootleg years of the 30s, marching on to the wartime years and springing with optimism to the rock n roll years of the 1950s.  And then we are into Flower Power and the free love of the 60s.

 

Maybe you are running a themed evening and require a vintage party dj or simply want a vintage dj set of specific tunes from a certain era played at your wedding, party etc in amongst a more general set.   Certainly I have been vintage dj at many events, or have played a classic vintage set and then moved to a more general music selection.

 

Maybe you are running a Great Gatsby night, a party with a 50s or 50s theme, a wartime/1940s gathering, even a 70s or 80s night - my vintage dj service is just right for you.

 

Weddings are increasingly taking on a vintage look - why not incorporate some vintage tunes early on?  Read on please about my suggestions for a vintage dj service at weddings.

"Thank you so much for last night's DJ-ing. The 20s-40s background music upstairs was spot on and the music for the cellar disco was also perfect. You got so many people dancing and followed my 'wish list' whilst taking on my guests' requests. Thank you! ‎ I received a lot of compliments on the music."

"It felt like the perfect jazz club. Julian provided excellent background music during the early part of the evening and later on, he got the dance floor rocking. My guests were asking: ‘who is this DJ? He is brilliant’"

In the case of weddings often the bride and groom, and maybe a few of their guests also will have very specific tastes, but maybe not all the family and guests share that, and so a compromise is necessary.   There is always the opportunity to play vintage during drinks and canapes, the wedding breakfast and the early evening transition period, after the wedding breakfast and when heading towards the evening reception party.

 

​Let me know your preferences and we can plan a vintage set for you and your guests.  See the Music section for how playlist planning works.

 

Please also see Alternative DJ as there is some crossover between what is thought to be Vintage and Alternative music.
