As part of our new blog Mrs Angelic has started quizzing some of our supplier friends to find out a little bit more about them and what they do to create our “Supplier Spotlight”.

Her first victim – she means volunteer!!! – is Jason from Jason Barker Roadshow who we had the pleasure of working with recently at the wedding of Charlotte and Alex. It was a choice made easily as he is celebrating his 4o-something birthday today as she is posing her questions……

  • How and when did you get started?

I was 13. My dad run Raunds Town Football Club and the Dj did not turn up so I did the disco as I was always helping the djs

  • What has been your strangest event?

I did a wedding and the bride and groom got into a big fight with each other. She threw her wedding ring, the police were called and took them away so I left my kit and went back the next day to collect to see them all searching for the ring. (They had made up btw – Mrs A.)

  • How do you stand out from the crowd? In other words – why book you?

We are very passionate about making people happy, going that extra mile, listening to every need and keeping up to date with music and new equipment.

  • What equipment do you use?

Only the best : RCF Evox 8&12 speakers, DB Sigmas 15&18 speakers, Martin Rush wizards lights, ADJ focus spot 3s, 4 moving heads, S&H booth, black or white Pioneer DDJ SX2

  • What do you see yourself doing in ten years time?

I’d still be doing the job I love but with a bit of help from my son.

  • How do you make each event unique for each client?

They have choices of setups and extras effect to make their wedding unique and online planning music requests

  • What would be your top tips to couples?

Book a venue with the bar in the same room as the disco. Watch the drink prices – too expensive and people won’t buy any and enjoy themselves. Don’t book a cheap DJ as it is one of the most important parts of a wedding and try to avoid booking via another DJ – try and book directly as you may not be getting the quality you are paying for.

  • If you couldn’t DJ what would be your dream job?

Stay At Home Dad.

  • How do ensure the evening goes without a hitch?

I have all my kit PAT tested, I always have a back up laptop and speakers and I have playlists ready in a file so I know I have all the bride’s music.
