We just wanted to thank you once again for having made our party such a success!We have since had many comments that the choice of music and it's presentation really put everybody in the mood - I am still feeling the consequences of boogie-woogie dancing with my granddaughter in my legs - they ache like he**!!We would have no hesitation in referring you to others.

Having started playing vinyl in 1968 around Norfolk you could call me a classic DJ. Yes, I am one of the old boys and I have gone back to those great days of original records and disco sound and light shows for clients who want to experience the sounds as they used to be. Oh, the scratches are free should you hear any.
With original 7” singles and 12” LP’s played on the turntables the music comes out of speakers that were used decades ago. Light screens and spotlights flash to the beat which we loved to dance to or just tap our fingers or toes as the projectors light the walls and/or ceiling.
Rock and Roll like Elvis, Eddie Cochran, early Cliff Richard and more, especially for those who want to jive and keep it alive, are where we take you back to the 50’s. Of course, we can go back to swing if requested and do it with Glenn Miller for example.
Swinging 60’s include those Motown dance floor fillers including The Temtations, Martha Reeves and The Vandellas* not forgetting The Contours (1962) Do You Love Me (later in Dirty Dancing). The Rolling Stones, Drifters, Beach Boys, Searchers*, Spencer Davis, Gerry and The Pacemakers*, Freddie and The Dreamers*, Del Shannon* and of course The Beatles. Many of the bands were from Birmingham, Manchester and London not forgetting Liverpool where The Beatles first made the big time. The first record with The Beatles name on it was ‘My Bonnie’ – Tony Sherdan and The Beatles on polydor (German) 1962 and Tony Sheridan was from Norwich. Yes Abracadabra Retro Disco carries a copy of this record - the first for The Beatles. * marks artists I have worked with during my career.
With the record that started the boogie sounds in the 70’s, Boogie Wonderland by Earth Wind and Fire was great disco dance alongside music from Chic, Rose Royce and Gloria Gaynor. The Bee Gees, Sister Sledge*, Queen, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Donna Summer, Edwin Starr, Bay City Rollers* and so many others. John Travolta flares and those great sounds from Grease were so popular. Fleetwood Mac, Santana, not forgetting bands like Led Zeppelin, were bringing us fantastic tracks through the decade.
The 80’s was when the clubs started to rise and videos came about, Michael Jackson leading the way together with Tina Turner, George Michael/Wham, Whitney Houston, Lionel Ritchie, Stevie Wonder, Duran Duran and Bon Jovi. Do you want those sounds as well as New Romantic tracks like those from The Human League, Soft Cell and Spandau Ballet or would you prefer Whitesnake, Europe or Alice Cooper. Billy Ocean, Bobby Brown and of course Madonna would always fill the dancefloors in the 80’s.

"We had a wonderful Golden Wedding celebration and your music and the mood lighting made it memorable. Our village hall was completely transformed by the wonderful lighting, it set the scene for a great party. Many of our friends have since commented on how great the music was and also many thanks for playing all our ‘special music’ as requested."
