About 20th Century Sounds
"Thank you for a great night!"
"Please let me introduce you to 20thcenturysounds.
I set this up in the summer of 1977 to turn a hobby into a business. My first booking was for factory workers of Performance Plastic Bacup and the surrounding neighbourhood, set in their canteen to celebrate the Queen's Silver Jubilee. My next-door neighbour was a manager there which is how I got the gig!
I started out with a set of Squire twin decks bought from my mum's catalogue, one light, a sign and a box of records and 20th Century Sounds was born!
30 years later we're still going strong minus the long hair and plus a few extra pounds. The equipment's changed a bit too - gone are the twin decks and singles and in are CDs, mp3s, mixers, loads of lights and lasers and miles of cables etc.! - still, you get the picture.
So if you're looking for a professional DJ with bags of experience and equipment at a reasonable cost, drop us a line."

"A DJ can make or break your party and I have to say that Russell definitely helped to make mine. The feedback I have had from guests has been extremely positive with a couple even saying it was the best party they've been to in years! Thanks Russell"
Denise Hutchinson hired 20th Century Sounds to perform at a Birthday - Adult 50th event at Bankfield Hotel Bingley in Bingley (BD16) on 25/05/2013.
"Russell and Dawn were friendly, helpful and accommodating. I had been let down by another DJ and really appreciated the fact that Russell didn't take advantage of this, making a reasonable charge for the event. I also think the idea of Dawn taking photographs is a fabulous idea. They have provided me with a wonderful record of my party. I will definitely recommend not only 20th Century Sounds but also the needadisco website. In hindsight I wish I'd known about the site before I booked the apparently rogue DJ."
