My name is Steve Hill and I have had a passion for music since a very early age, I remember learning to play A-Ha Take On Me! using my mums Yamaha electronic keyboard, I tried to learn all kinds of instruments in a bid to recreate the music I was hearing in my 80s childhood.
Thankfully at 13 I found my calling and did my first ever DJ set at the local cricket club, its was a strange affair using my bedroom stereo with just a single CD deck and a tape deck made mixing impossible but then I had no idea what mixing even was! I just faded one track into the next in an attempt to sound professional.
25 years later I could be found playing out club sets in Nightclubs across the UK to crowds sometimes 1000 or more people! I held residencies in a number of clubs around the South West and played some guest sets across Europe.
Everyone needs to settle down a bit at some point and in 2011 our son was born, this signaled a massive change in my DJ'ing and I made the decision to focus my attention on corporate events and of course my favourite thing, weddings.
I do love a good wedding, so many people really happy all in the same place having a proper party with fun, laughter, love and of course plenty of dancing.
A Wedding doesn't have to be a cheesy event with the YMCA and Birdie song playing out whilst Nan tries to learn the steps to the Macarena! Although these can be amazing weddings too! Many "Cheesy" DJ's ruin the moment with lots of talking, fading between songs or playing pre-recorded mixes.
Coming from the club background I love to play a mixture of music from all genres, decades and cultures, its fantastic to take everyone on a journey through music, playing something for everyone without it becoming cheesy or boring, bouncing across the various genres often mixing them together or introducing a new track over the top of a club classic. It's all about that moment when you see Uncle Dave jump up from his chair grab his pals and hit the floor when I play that floorfiller from 1992!
Music is something that triggers such a response in people that often those 5 hours at a wedding absolutely wizz by and before you know it we are screaming One More! One More! as the hotel manager is trying to switch on the big lights and get everyone out the room.
Having spent the last 10 years focused on Weddings, Private Parties and Corporate Events I can honestly say you are in safe hands, I make sure I take the time to have a good chat with my client prior to confirming the booking to make sure I am the right DJ for the job and to ensure everything you need I can provide, from DJ to Event Host I can confidently deliver.
Having spent many years hosting a variety of events and charity events I can also provide a full hosting service for awards evenings, sponsors events, product launches, charity dinners and much more.
