Dreamwave DJ’s – Behind the Scenes

Dreamwave DJ Darren Saxby Essex party DJCarina on Dreamwave decks

 Read more about our recent film shoot promoting our Dreamwave DJ Services provided in Essex, Suffolk and surrounding areas for weddings as well as both personal and corporate parties.

 

Our team of Dreamwave DJ’s and crew all had a bit of fun in the warehouse a short while ago. We prepared for our new, behind the scenes promotional film.  Laughter and friendly banter was prolific whilst on the road to creating our visionary masterpiece.  Even I had the opportunity to show my budding DJ skills and gave a cracking performance on the decks; but I think I will be sticking to my desk job for at least the near future!

 

 

Spike Grimsey was on form with his exceptional camera techniques to generate artistic snapshots of the guys performing and prepping equipment.  These reflect the great place that Dreamwave Events is to work which truly echoes in the guy’s performances during our Evening DJ Service.

 

If you are looking for experienced DJ’s that emanate confidence and fun whilst maintaining competent professionalism for your Evening Party; these are your guys!

Our team of Dreamwave DJ’s: Paul, Dave, Spike, Martin, George and Darren are all accomplished performers that bring the party! Our Evening Service offers their experience as well as a choice of set up options with different style booths and lighting colour to match the theme of your party.

Dreamwave DJ’s do not only offer DJ Services for the evening. My personal favourite is our Cocktail DJ Service, offering a tasteful alternative for an afternoon drinks reception.  Our DJ’s adjust their performance to mirror the relaxed atmosphere.  This is accompanied by a small discreet set up with appropriate music played.

Get in Touch….

For further details of our DJ services, please contact us and we’ll be happy to answer any questions.

Spotlight on a DJ – Being Martin Cooper

Looking for an experienced family DJ for your wedding, birthday or personal party in Essex or Suffolk – Martin is the guy you want!

Wedding DJ  Spotlight

Whilst prepping his DJ Equipment for a wedding at Hengrave Hall, I briefly distracted him with a coffee to chat about the party he was about to bring:

  • What services are you prepping for?

I’m loading up my DJ gear ready to provide evening DJ entertainment. I’m leaving soon to arrive in time to set up whilst they are eating their wedding breakfast.  A quick change and then I’ll start.

  • What’s the playlist like you have for tonight?

After their first dance they have asked to go straight into the party, but initially want some familiar family tunes for their children to enjoy before their eye lids become too heavy. Later I plan to play music through the decades as requested by the couple. They have said they are happy for me to use my experience to read the crowd.  They just want the dancefloor full! The bride and groom has sent us some awesome tracks to work from. I’ve got a bit of everything from Stevie Wonder and Motown to some 90’s pop like Backstreet Boys.

  • So, what is the first dance?

I have been asked to play “All of Me” by John Legend, a popular choice right now.  Then I think I will move onto the new Bruno Mars track as it’s just so catchy and fun.

  • And the song to finish the evening? 

They’ve chosen their last dance to be “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen, a real party classic.

 

Martin has been with us since Dreamwave started sprouting roots in 2009 and his good judgement of music choice from reading the crowd only comes from experience making him the accomplished DJ he is today. His musical prowess and knowledge gained from DJing since he was teenager will make sure you never stop dancing! We are thrilled to call him a member of our team.

 

If you want to find out more about our DJ Services or speak to us about your upcoming party, please contact us and we will be more than happy to help.

18th Birthday Celebration in Brentwood…

Saturday 5th September was a very busy weekend for us all at Dreamwave Events. Paul & Martin were both providing our Evening DJ & Disco Services at a wedding celebration and at 40th wedding anniversary. I also providing the same service but with a twist for an 18th birthday event in Brentwood, Essex. Our Clients had a private marquee in their grounds provided by our good friends Chelmer Marquees. The marquee had a ‘glitz and glamour’ feel to it, with a blackout lining and deep rich coloured draping. You will see from the pictures below our sound & lighting equipment was set up in a club style for maximum impact and wow factor. The use of a green laser and smoke machine also added to this effect.
The Birthday girl Viki had a unique fancy dress theme for her party… ‘the first letter of your name!?!’ All the guest dressed up and everybody enjoyed the party and mix of music played by myself. In Viki’s words posted to us on Facebook after the event…… ‘Thank you for Saturday it was awesome 😀 xx’

Congratulations to our own Dave & Hayley…

I am sure this Blog has been eagerly awaited. I would like to personally send our congratulations to our very own Dave & Hayley (the new Mr & Mrs Drane!) They were married on 23rd May 2009 at Our Lady of Light Catholic Church in Clacton on Sea, followed by the wedding breakfast and evening reception at Le Talbooth in Dedham.

The whole day was magnificent and could not have run smoother. Dave & Hayley had spent many, many months planning every last detail (and it showed!).

They both would like to extend their thanks out to the selected suppliers within the wedding industry who made their day even more special.

They have these messages for them….

Abigail’s collection:

“The high standard of service and professional planning from Abi, Rob & Lauren made our brides maids look stunning and the guys very dapper indeed. Thank you”

A-Team Heroes:

“Thank you for fulfilling a childhood dream of riding in the A-Team Van! The trip from my parents house, through the town centre, then to the church will stay with me forever. A great touch!”

American Dreams:

“Thank you to Roy with his 1959 Fleetwood Cadillac. It really was a head turner”

Bunce Video:

“Warren & Debbie are honestly amazing at what they do. They videoed our day in such a way that we did not even know they were there. However when we watch our DVD back. They did not miss a thing! Thank you”

Calanthus Floral Design:

“Chris your extensive knowledge of flowers and enthusiasm was great. Your ‘quirky’ designs and ‘funky ‘ feel with the arrangements were just what we imagined. Everyone commented on how outstanding the flowers were!”

Craig Williams Photography:

“What can we say!?! We are both truly speechless with our wedding pictures! The hard work and attention to detail Craig and Kate put in when they are taking photos really does shine through. We are both proud to be close friends with you and thank you so so much”

Eternal Flame:

“My dress was just as I had pictured it in my head, right from a little girl. Thank you for all your hard work. Linda and the girls here are fantastic at what they do!”

Freddie & Friends New Orleans Jazz Band:

“You gentlemen are highly talented and true professional musicians. Everybody has commented on how amazing our jazz band on the lawn was. You all kept the atmosphere up and fun for all. Many thanks!”

Le Talbooth:

“We must start by thanking Alex for her initial help in the planning stages of our wedding. She was always very helpful with any questions we had, big or small. Our thanks also go to Umesh, and Richard for the great hard work on the day. To Umesh for his planning and helping with our menu and wine selection, plus for making sure our every need was taken care of and that all our guest were well on the day. To Richard for his amazing co-ordination of staff during the wedding breakfast. Of course to the team of highly skilled chefs for mouth watering food. And to all the Milsoms group staff who played a big part in making the day run so smoothly.”

“A last big special thanks goes to the crew who without them the evening party would not have been so amazing and the marquee would have not looked as it did.

Mark, Paul & Martin, your efforts very early on the day left both myself and Hayley speechless when we walked into the marquee for the entrance! We both were so over whelmed. The Guys had flown not 1, not 2, but 4! 50cm mirror balls in the roof along with 2 moving heads. more effect lighting, LED up-lighters and a black & white dancefloor, really did exceed expectations.

Thank you also to Martin for a grand job of DJing the first part of the evening, and thanks to Paul for DJing the seconds set.”

You will see from the pictures taken by Craig & Kate below that Dave & Hayley had the best day of there lives!

Colchester Garrison Officers Club ‘Pink’ Wedding Disco

On Saturday 14th March we provided our complete wedding DJ & disco service at the Colchester Garrison Officers Club.
Our clients, the new Mr & Mrs Evans also booked our optional up-lighters to enhance their wedding colours and ‘pink’ theme, they were both amazed at the effect the up-lighting gave.
The bride and grooms first dance was also enhanced by the use of our low fog & bubble machines and the brides request for the ‘disco lighting’ to only be set to 3 colours (pink, purple & blue) was also fulfilled.

All attending this special day said they enjoyed the DJ & disco entertainment. I would like to wish the new Mr & Mrs Evans all the best for the future as husband and wife.
