Tom and Martin have been Wedding DJ’s at The Plough, Rhosmaen, Llandeilo, Swansea Yacht and Sub Aqua Club, The Beggar’s Reach, Milford Haven and the Castlemead Hotel, Tenby. We were able to play a wide range of music to create a good atmosphere and at some of the events we had to stick to strict playlist which work well, as it contained a good mixture of pop, rock and other genres of music.

Martin, Kelly and Ethan had their annual outdoor event near Carmarthen, i.e., Abergwilli Carnival. It was a chance to play all the summer tunes. We were very lucky with the weather this year. Dry and sunny. It was torrential rain last year!

Ethan and Martin were DJs in Teenage disco in Swansea, at Ostreme Hall, Mumbles. We made sure all the requests were played together with the latest hits.

They were Prom DJs in Neath at The Disco Glyn Clydach Coach House. The year of 2017. Everyone had an amazing night!

The best thing I did was to invest in a new camera! The clarity of the images and the richness of colour of the photographs really show the disco lighting we use at its best. We believe that having a good light show in a disco enhances the atmosphere of the event.

The 80th birthday disco included a very wide range of music requests included Ballroom Music or Strict Tempo as it is sometimes known as. We also played songs from the Fifties, Sixties, Seventies and Eighties, as well as a few request from the Charts.  The 50th birthday party was quite a contrast. Most of the night we played muisc from the 1980’s with some current hits.

The other birthday party disco in Swansea, Upper Killay RFC, was a range of 70’s, 80’s and some hits from the Noughties and Nineties at it was a 50th and 30th birthday party disco in Swansea.

Our Wedding discos, this month included a Star Wars theme at the Aberavon Beach Hotel. The wedding cake was included in the theme. Our Wedding DJ services were required at Ammanford. It was at Bettws RFC. There was even a white LED dance for then guest.

Our children’s discos included children’s entertainment and DJ in Neath, namely Longford Memorial Hall, Skewen.

Tom Hyatt has been the DJ at the adult discos, Ethan Gray has been the DJ at children’s disco and shows, while Martin Thompson has been a DJ and in the role as a children’s entertainer in Swansea. Kelly Jack Roberts has been very supportive in helping repairing sound and lighting gear.

After the busy Christmas Season and the half term school holidays, we have a break. This gives us time to plan and prepare for the year ahead. This includes maintenance of equipment, preparing for PAT testing and upgrading some of kit.

Another month or so and British Summer Time will be with us. I am hoping for some warmer, drier weather, definitely more sunlight! It is time to start checking out KA-Tash-Trophe, our 8 Foot Robot Cat. There as been quite some interest from schools and universities with our three metre robot KATT. I’ve got a link to a recent newsletter. So time to get her ready!

See you next month.
