The Dj

I will always be the Dj if you book 1st Wedding Dj or Black Knight Disco

The Sound Equipment

Mixers, Cd Player, or computers all have very good sound quality nowadays. The weakest link in any sound system are the loudspeakers. It is the loudspeakers which turn a poor or average mobile disco into a quality event. Depending on the venue and type/budget of an event we choose from the following:-

Loudspeakers

On the left are a pair of 10 inch speakers On the right a pair of 12 inch loudspeakers The 10inch are smaller and lighter and perfect for children’s parties where they do not need to be loud or have a “Disco” bass performance. The 12 inch were originally designed for a singer. They have a better bass performance but not to a standard expected for a quality disco. Both need to be used with a bass unit below for parties of more than 50 people.
Disco music requires loudspeakers that are designed to thump out the music as current music is recorded. This system on the left has a SUB Bass unit and two satellite speakers that do the middle and higher frequencies. It works in the same way your home DVD or sound bar works. For small parties up to 75 people it is capable of very high sound quality but for audiences of a greater number there is no solution to Big Is Beautiful as per this system on the right.
When the guest list is more than 100, or the room is larger then the budget sound system used by many cheap Djs will not be adequate. To make sound louder and in particular for bass sounds a larger loudspeaker is needed. Think of it this way, a Bass drum is big a piccolo is small. Bass notes large, high notes small.

Lighting

Lighting can be split into 2 sections. 1 Ambient or flood Lighting 2 Effect lighting

Ambient or flood lighting

Many venues have rooms that are lit by overhead white lighting which does not create an atmosphere. Coloured lighting has for years been the realm of Djs, creating an atmosphere in a venue. In the past this has been simple coloured bulbs, but now we are able to access LED technology that is safe to touch and uses significantly less power. Often called mood lighting or Up lighting, this can change the whole feel of a venue as below.

Effect Lighting

There are hundreds of different effect lights from the original mirror ball to high powered lasers. These are some of the effects we use. Imposiled also known by other names. Uses LEDs to create concentric circles. Very Pretty. Qty 2
Lasers 2 effects available
The Barrage   A new effect which we normally point at the ceiling.
Star Cloths and Curtains
We have many other effects old and new.  Please ask if you want a flashy disco or a low lighting calm disco we are happy to oblige.
