Dj to hire for wedding in Canberra?

By laura_2716 - 3 July 2011 29

We are looking for a dj to hire for our wedding in December.

Requirements… we would like them to turn up on time, be dressed appropriately for a wedding and play music that we request in advance.

Anyone have any dj’s that they recommend for us to hire? Also, does anyone know roughly how much it will cost?

What’s Your opinion?

Does Hughie finish with “Love will Tear us Apart” to send them off on their honeymoon with heads spinning?

From memory, he didn’t want to stop playing, and the function went waaaay over time until the caretaker booted us out of the venue as he wanted to close up and go home! I’m sure he wouldn’t play that joy divison song, unless of course someone asked him to.

Hugh Ford http://www.joydivisionn.com/ did a function I was at recently, and he did it with evident enjoyment and ease. He specialises in 70s and 80s, he reckons he can play ANY 80s song you request, including all the obscure indie new wave stuff.

He also spends a lot of time up dancing with the ladies, and as an ex-olympic middle-distance runner, he can keep it going all night from what I observed. Top bloke, I’d book him no problem.

Whatever you do, avoid the short, fat ginger bloke. I encountered one of his staff one night who was on his first gig on his own. He seemed to be playing 70’s disco and nothing else. When questioned, he said the laptop he’d been supplied with was broken and that he hadn’t been given any backup CDs to use with the house CD player. The short, fat ginger was at a wedding and wasn’t going to turn up for a number of hours. If the short, fat ginger treats his staff like that, I can only imagine how bad his performance would be. Interesting too that the establishment he and his staff work at had the grand total of 18 people there at midnight on Saturday night.

Andrew Leigh will act as a DJ if you hire his marquee. They call him Dr Funkenstein. I’m sure he’s really almost quite entertaining:

yep Ardanien Entertainment was amazing. Ask for Emile – he was our DJ and he was outstanding

I’m in the industry and i can tell you most of the DJ companies in Canberra are rubbish! DO YOUR HOMEWORK WHEN BOOKING A DJ.

best in Canberra is ARDANIEN ENTERTAINMENT (www.ardanien.com.au).

always wear a suit, produce the best nights and they can actually mix

Geez, $600 for a “DJ” for a night?

My missus and her band used to do live gigs for not much more than that, and it was mostly the same sort of songs you hear at weddings anyway.
