Spotlight on DJ Spike

Spike Grimsey Dreamwave DJ

 

Spike is our beard rocking dynamic DJ, lighting designer and sound engineer. His energizing and enigmatic DJ performance will elevate your night guaranteeing an entertaining experience for your evening.  He has also migrated into the office as my neighbour to help in the technical and warehouse department.  I suppose you could label Spike as a chameleon who blends into each role with professional perfection!

As my partner in crime in our exclusive corner of the office, myself and Spike enjoy cheeky banter and occasional throwing of some delicious snacks across to our office adversaries.

Because of Spike’s close vicinity; he made the prime candidate to probe and today we chatted about his views on “cheese” (music not the food) as he is always a key player within Dreamwave’s DJ circle:

 

Spike says:

Different people have different perceptions of the definition of cheese.

 For example, classic tracks can be equally ultimate floor fillers. You can play tracks that everybody will want to dance to that can accommodate a wide audience without being cheesy.

Classics Whitney Houston and soul can really bring a crowd of guests together. It’s about playing the right tracks that everyone can relate too.

Being a Dreamwave DJ, we pride ourselves on having the skills to read the dancefloor and play a great song selection; it’s about mixing the right tracks together to create class and not cheese!

Music balance is so important.

Some of the best parties I have had the pleasure of smashing have had a great balance of new and old tracks. Certain songs will only work at certain points in the evening. You need to take your guests on a journey and give them a great mix of relatable tracks that spur exciting and energy.

 

More to come from Spike and our office interactions soon……

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.

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.
