We carefully hand-pick our DJs to make sure that they’re the very best; it goes without saying that it’s vital to have the right music to guarantee a good time is had by all! At our party nights you can expect a good mix of chart and dance music from ’80s to date, including club classics, R&B, your favourite floor-fillers and some smoochy numbers too. Our DJs play requests too but this is at their discretion, so if you’ve asked for something that they think will clear the dance floor, they don’t have to play it!
If you know of a good DJ, we’d like to hear about him. Click HERE to email us, or give our office a call on 01344 870277.
We are currently trying out some new DJs and once they’ve received the seal of approval(!) information about them will appear on this page.
We value YOUR feedback, so please do let us know what you think of them and their music!

MIKE RUSSO aka DJ Soulman – Personality, Mix VDJ, DJ / Sound Technician
Started DJing when I left school at the age of 16 with house parties, school disco’s & moved on to bigger gigs as I grew older, I love entertaining as much today as I did when I first started,
It gives me a buzz to see people having a good time dancing to the tunes I play to keep the dance floor alive whatever the occasion.
I have worked & still work in many venues in & around London, past venue’s like Planet Hollywood, Dover Street restaurant & bar, Tiger Tiger, Zoo Bar just a few to mention, also worked for MSC Cruise Ships sailing up & down the Adriatic ocean,
These days I’m DJing with a twist, adding music videos to my shows for that extra bit of entertainment, it’s great to see people dance the night away & also to see the videos on the screens,
I like to mix it up & play all styles of music & music videos from all decades.
My motto – Keeping the dance floor alive.
I call myself DJ Soulman for the love of 70 & 80s Soul & disco.
