ABOUT SILVER DJS
Hopefully you found this page by recommendation. We prefer to have a personal connection
with our clients. If we haven't met just yet, hopefully we can very soon to discuss and plan
your perfect occasion.
Why book someone you don't know or hasn't been recommended, not know how reliable they
are, what equipment or music they have which could inevitably ruin your special occasion?
My name is David Harrison and I founded Silver DJs. I started Djing whilst I was at school,
which led me to my first job in a busy DJ retail store. Here I built up valuable knowledge and
experience first hand within the industry. While working here I tried & tested some of the best & worst equipment out there! Also helping other DJs in the industry along the way. This continued and has taken me to many large events such as Silverstone F1, Ministry of Sound London, and numerous Football Clubs / Hotels.
Sure owning quality equipment like we use assists in the perfect event, however for us its the variety of music, and when its played is vital. We play YOUR requests and what YOU want, not our favourites! We don't just own the latest tracks, we spend time going back to get rare tracks too! Our collections contain every number 1 since 1952, Rock n Roll, Motown, Ska, Reggae, Rock, Dance, RnB, Garage, House, Party, and the usual 50s, 60s, 70s, 80's & 90's. Even the volume it is played at is something alot of our clients comment on!
We don't use any high intensity strobe lighting, We use DMX lighting allowing us full control over colours/patterns/speed etc. We can also provide LED uplighting allowing your room that extra special ambience through the colour of your choice! The sound has to be right, nothing worse than a poor set of speakers & amplifiers! Crackling and lacking in high/low frequencies. We use Electrovoice (EV) speakers, for maximum clarity and projection.
Some venues prefer DJs not to use smoke machines due to highly sensitive smoke alarms, this is not a problem and we will always abide by this. We prefer to arrive to the venue early to set up so guests do not see cables, boxes, sound checks etc. This is at no extra cost to you! Our equipment is all modern as we regularly update it to keep up with the best technology, and maintain the best appearance. No rusty, dirty gear here!
We also carry a £10million DJ public liability insurance, a full PAT testing certificate for all equipment used, and are fully CRB checked. These documents travel with us to events in order to satisfy the venue management if the need arises. Weddings & birthdays are considered private functions by the PRS and PPL societies that collect royalties on behalf of artists, songwriters and record companies. As long as you are not sharing any function rooms or bars with the public then there is no need for any licenses. If there are shared spaces then the onus is on the venue to ensure that their licenses are in place for live and recorded music. There is no such thing as a musician's or DJ license.
Feel free to email for any other questions or queries. Silver DJs look forward to performing at your special event very soon!
