Orsett Hall Hotel – Resident DJs

It’s a nice quiet Sunday evening, so time for a quick update on the blog…. Had a wonderful time last night in the Orsett Hall’s Gold Room suite, made all the more special by sharing the gig with another of Orsett Hall’s resident DJs, Big Russ. A really successful night, dancefloor was pretty much full for the entire duration, and despite having two DJs at the controls, there were no ego problems! It’s so nice to be able to set up and pack down in record time too, as Russ uses very similar equipment to me. Access is so easy

Maidens Barn, High Easter – Our venue reviews continue….

For the first time in over two years, we were back at Maidens Barn last week…..twice! Just wedding booking coincidence meant the long trek from Thurrock to High Easter on both Thursday & Saturday, so I thought I’d share my thoughts on the venue itself…. For a DJ, there are two dream scenarios and they were both here! One is easy access….there’s nothing worse than facing stairs/doors/winding corridors/goods lifts, and thankfully at Maidens Barn, you unload your van right next to the stage door and within two yards you’re right where you need to set up. It’s also curtained off,

Wedding booking season starts here!

Wow! What a busy week so far, and it’s only Wednesday…….and I haven’t even left the office! Lots of enquiries and requests for quotes flooding in, mainly for weddings in 2013. I must admit, I feared a lull in wedding bookings for next year, feeling that the recession would finally bite into the wedding market……but it seems all is well after all! With hotels doing some cracking midweek and Sunday deals, no longer are Friday and Saturday the exclusive wedding days to have. We also offer a £50 reduction on our standard fee if your wedding is Mon-Thurs (conditions apply).

Whatever happened to the DJ microphone?

Last night was a very rare yet extremely welcome experience for me……a Saturday night off to attend my second cousin’s glamorous wedding at the fabulous Hengrave Hall in Suffolk. I met up with family and friends I haven’t seen since….er…..the last family wedding, and it was truly refreshing to be in front of the decks instead of behind them. Hengrave Hall is a magnificent Elizabethan (I think!) mansion and an awesome venue for a wedding, with breathtaking gardens and surrounding grounds. Which leads me to my only negative point of the whole day…..why oh why does a venue as prestigious

More investment, more buttons, more lights!

2012 has been our big reinvestment year, replacing some older lighting effects and putting in place new mixing desks and media players. One of the more recent purchases is our new DJ booth (pictured below)…..we always value a smart looking set-up and our custom-built stand has served us well for four years, but there’s always room for change and the new DJ booth is the latest industry-standard product for the finer venues. Twinned with our 3m x 2m starcloth backdrop behind the booth, it creates a wonderfully classy and eye-catching display. (Pictures to follow soon……on the Gallery page). Please ask for more details

The teachers deserve a Prom too!

A big thank you to all the teachers, teaching assistants and school staff who attended Orsett Hall’s ‘School’s Out’ party last Friday (20/7/12). After three weeks of non-stop School Proms for the various leavers around the county, it was the grown-ups turn! And with beer & wine permitted this time! A truly great night, we got to play some real classics along the way….such a shame it’s all over until next year!
