Mobile discos in Canberra. Anyone used one lately?

By farnarkler - 9 June 2009 28

I’m planning an event and need a mobile disco to provide entertainment.

Have any of you got any recommendations or warnings about local mobile discos and their DJs?

What’s Your opinion?

Who would you recommend Jim? I’ve got some friends that are getting married next year, and they’re on the lookout for a good band!

No fuss, f.

Hope the event goes smoothly!

IF I did want a band I’d be approaching big Mitch who I’ve known over the years or Chicago Charles who I met a few weeks ago.

Jim I understand your feelings about APRA. As I said, I got into some trouble in London with playing self recorded music so I don’t want a repeat.

I’ve had more than enough of bands. I worked at a London club which had live bands and there are only so many times I can take renditions of ‘Sweet home Alabama’ and ‘Summer of 69’.

The crowd are all in the mid to late 30’s so 70’s to 90’s will be on the menu.

And if you do want recommendations of decent bands, I’ve got a few (none of which have ever played either Summer of 69 or Sweet Home Alabama’).

Yeah but I don’t want to have to pay APRA for being allowed to play music in public. A mobile DJ will have that all sorted. I don’t know how much investigation is done by APRA here but I got caught up with all the bullsh*t about illegal music in the UK and don’t need it here.

With the utmost respect, farnarkler: F*ck APRA. F*ck them right in their shiny arses. I’ve had to deal with them on a couple of occasions, and I can confidently state that you’re best off ignoring their existence entirely.

If you need someone simple, then you can’t really go past mobydisk. They choose pretty good songs, have their own speakers/lights etc, and for a little bit extra they have a karoke function. They’re not very good at “mixing” so to speak, but they have a large song list, and they are good at making playlists to suit the audience.
