This afternoon we are talking about my favourite subject, makeup. For some women its handbags,...
This afternoon I would like to introduce you to one of the loveliest wedding DJs I have had the pleasure to work with, William from Dukebox Discos. Will comes with years of DJ experience and prides himself on his music selection, vast knowledge and his ability to ‘read the room’. He is highly professional and knows exactly what you need to keep the party going all night long. Choosing your wedding entertainment might seem daunting at first, but Will will talk you through the whole process and make it stress free, while giving you the freedom to add-on any little extras you feel will make your wedding that extra bit special. You can find out more about Dukebox Discos HERE.
What made you start your business?
It started by chance when I was asked to DJ at a friends wedding. I really enjoyed it and wanted to continue offering couples an alternative to the stereotypical cheesy wedding DJ.
When did you start?
I started DJ’ing when I was around 18 years old. I was DJ’ing in clubs and bars, but decided to specialise in weddings seven years ago.
Where are you based?
I am based in the Cotswolds. Most of my gigs are local in Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire but I do often travel all over the UK. The furthest distance I’ve travelled is the north east of Scotland.
How would you describe your style?
I like to go from genre to genre and try to avoid anything that is overplayed so that the sound is both familiar and refreshing at the same time.
What makes you different to your competitors?
Having a good understanding of what couples want. Most wedding DJ’s are still very much stereotypical wedding DJ’s and most couples want to avoid that stereotype.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
Seeing couples have the best time at their wedding.
What sort of couple do you think you attract?
Music loving couples wanting a packed dancefloor, who also realise that everything for their evening should look as nice as everything else for the rest of their day. Some of my clients are even asking their florist to decorate the DJ booth.
What would be your ideal wedding to work on?
I’d love to DJ on the roof of number 3 Savile Row, London where the Beatles performed their rooftop concert. That’s such a geeky answer and I don’t think it would be an ideal setting for a wedding!
Can you give me some information on your pricing structure?
There isn’t a standard price. Enquiries are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and a quote is given based on the times, venue location and any additional requirements. I hate services that have hidden charges added along the way so with Dukebox Discos I make a point of making the total cost of everything clear from the start.
What is your ideal way to spend a day off?
Spending the day with my wife and having my phone switched off.
Who would be your 5 dream dinner guests dead or alive?
Elvis Presley, Freddie Mercury, Prince, Aretha Franklin and my wife! We could get them to sing for us in between each course.
What would you do if you won the lottery?
It sad to admit but I’d probably still want to DJ. I’d use our millions to pay couples to let me DJ at their weddings, rather than them pay me!
