Tom and Martin have been Wedding DJs at The Plough, Rhosmaen, Llandeilo, Swansea Yacht and Sub Aqua Club, The Beggar’s Reach, Milford Haven and the Castlemead Hotel, Tenby. We created a good atmosphere by playing a wide range of music. At some of the events we had to stick to a strict playlist. This can work well, as it can contain 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!

There was also a Children’s Disco in Swansea. It was a football presentation disco for the football under 6’s. Ethan was the DJ at Morriston RFC. He played popular songs for the children and request, and Martin was the Children’s Entertainer in the Swansea venue.

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.Don’t forget to visit our You Tube Channel: DJ Diamond Dust.

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 requests from the Charts.  The 50th birthday party was quite a contrast. Most of the night we played music from the 80s with some current hits. The other birthday party disco in Swansea, Upper Killay RFC, was a range of 70s, 80s and some hits from the 00s and 90s 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.

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 a children’s entertainer in Swansea. Kelly Jack Roberts has been very supportive in helping to repair the 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 the 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  our 8-Foot-Robot-Cat. There has been quite some interest from schools and universities with our robots. I’ve got a link to a recent newsletter. So time to get her ready! See you next month.

Review of 2016

Swansea DJ Diamond Crew of 2016

Swansea DJ Diamond Crew of 2016

We are Diamond Dust, DJ’s in Cardiff and Swansea with Children’s Parties and entertainment in Cardiff, Swansea, Tenby and Neath. Here’s the Crew’s Reviews of 2016.
DJ Tom Hyatt - Crew - Diamond Dust

DJ Tom Hyatt – Crew – Diamond Dust

DJ Tom Hyatt: “2016 was definitely a year of intriguing gigs. As DJs in Cardiff, we had a variety of occasions/celebrations. The first gig that comes to mind was the Water Aid charity event in the Cardiff Mercure Hotel which was organised by the Welsh Water Company. Martin and I provided the music at the event for roughly 200 people. We also backed a very entertaining blues themed band called, The Big Mac’s Wholly Soul Big Band. This was a very enjoyable experience. This gig was one of my favourites from last year, as we got to be part of a great cause, got to meet the band and also entertained caring and considerate people from the Welsh Water team. Another DJ event that stands out from last year was the wedding Martin and I, attended at the Manor Park Country House, Clydach, Swansea. I enjoyed this gig, as the audience requested a wide range of music from the 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s and current era. The best moment from this gig is when the groom borrowed our microphone and told all the guests to get on the dance floor and dance to the Macarena and they sure did! To end the year, we DJ are in Port Talbot, providing our service at a New Year’s party in the Aberavon Beach Hotel, Port Talbot. We backed a very talented and diverse band called “The Fonz and The Poet”. The audience responded well to our music, and the band’s song choices too. It was a great way to end 2016 and enter 2017. Hope to see you all sometime this year!”
DJ Ethan Gray - Crew - DJ Diamond Dust

DJ Ethan Gray – Crew – DJ Diamond Dust

DJ Ethan Gray: “2016 has been an excellent year for me. It’s my second season as a DJ with Diamond Dust, and hasn’t it been a blast! I’ve met some wonderful people form Radio Freeway, and have performed at a number of gigs. This year has given me the opportunity to boost my confidence and achieve great things.  I can’t wait to see what 2017 has to offer! If I had to pick 3 venues which I enjoyed the most, they would have to be St Agnus Church in Port Talbot, the Pentrepoeth Primary School prom, Newport, and Morriston Community Centre, Swansea. I can’t wait for 2017 to see what characters I will meet! I would like to thank Martin Thompson for letting me be a part of the Diamond Dust team – without him all this wouldn’t possible!”

DJ Kelly Jack Roberts: “2016 has been a blast with DJ Diamond Dust. I started off at Maplin Electronic Store in Swansea, then a school prom in Newport Gwent and also a carnival in Abergwili, near Carmarthen. Not only have I been to new places: but I’ve met new people such as other members of the Diamond Dust crew and the Radio Freeway crew. 2016 has been such an amazing year for me and for DJ Diamond Dust and we all cannot wait to see what 2017 holds for us”.

DJ Martin Thompson: “It has been a rich and varied this year. We have travelled throughout South and Mid Wales – even as far as, Milton Keynes during the summer to meet Mat Irvine, the creator and developer of Doctor Who’s K9. We have made visits to quite a few holiday parks; our most frequent visit has been to New Minerton Holiday Park, Tenby. We always have a warm welcome.

Our 8-Foot-Robot-Cat  has visited a few interesting venues  including a day at Waterfront Museum, Swansea – Festival of Science week. Rhoose Social Club, near Cardiff was one of my favourite children’s birthday parties.  I have not been there before but we had a great mixture of ages of children with different   tastes in music and really enjoyed the magic show and joined in to keep Mascot the Robot dog company”. January Discos in Swansea and Neath This month gigs included a children’s birthday party at Carnegie Hall, Skewen. I was a Swansea Children’s Entertainer again – a repeat from last year a very welcoming happy interactive party. Ethan was the DJ at this venue in Neath. The Naval and Military Club, Port Talbot was the venue of a 40th birthday party, being a DJ in Port Talbot, keeping up with the party songs and hits. We were DJs at Swansea Uplands RFC, Upper Killay, was a mixture of young audience at a 21-year-old birthday party with plenty of lively dancing from the parents and their friends as well. It was really great to meet up with friends we had not seen in a while, a good time to catch up. I was a Children’s Entertainer at Neath Scout Hall. It was the venue for a 5-year-old birthday party with some fancy dress and a very active party – great fun! Tom and I were DJs in Cardiff at the Discovery Pub – a 21st birthday and amazing fancy dress costumes. We had 62 requests – we did our best to play the majority of them. We played 80s hits and present day chart music. It’s a brilliant pub with a great atmosphere. Thanks guys!

We had a 70s themed night at the Cricket Club in Neath which was very entertaining for all. DJ Diamond Dust had a great lively evening in the Village Hotel, Swansea where a Bikers group had their annual celebration. They could not be more hospitable and welcoming.  It was a really memorable night.  We had a return to the Wig and Pen in Swansea for the locals. It was really great to see old friends for a 21st Birthday Party in the newly refurbished function room at The West Cross Inn, Mumbles, near Swansea. There was a return to Stebonheath Football Club, Llanelli, for a Special Needs Children’s Christmas Party. It was good to see how they were since last year.  Another children’s party was a 9th birthday party at Seven Sisters Welfare Hall – what a beautiful hall! It was originally a swimming pool has been converted into a function room and a library. We had a school disco for a transition year at Dwr-y-Felin Comprehensive School, Neath.  It was great to let out all the special lighting effects for this teenage disco. This month has been learning about making videos on YouTube for readers to have a fuller picture of who we are and what we do, including Mascot the Robot Dog. Go a visit our YouTube Channel DJ Diamond Dust. Hope you like it. We also include some other videos which might entertain you and put a smile on your face.
