20th Century Sounds

"Music For All Occasions"

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 plus 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.

    "Russell was a brilliant DJ and really made our party go with a swing. Everyone was up for a good bop and Russell's music ensured we all stayed on the dance floor! He was very organised and efficient and willing to listen to what we wanted. He also provides a disc of photographs which were fantastic. Thanks Russell would certainly recommend you!"

    "Russell was very professional. Punctual and smartly dressed for the occasion.The music he played was perfect for the age group and the occasion. The reason I booked him in the first place was that he took photographs which meant I did not have to worry about this. He posted them very quickly on Facebook for me to see and I have now received a disc with them on. I thought this service was excellent and I am very pleased with them. I would certainly recommend him."

    "Russell was fantastic and was one of the highlights of our big day. The music was perfect and the DVD of photos we got of our night was a bonus as we decided not to have a photographer and just have natural photos. I would highly recommend 20th century sounds!! "

    "Russell was a pleasure to deal with from the start. Always got back to me very prompt with his replies. The night of the event, he even organized some party games for us. It was a good laugh, he did great to say that there where only three ladies attending the rest where men. They are hard work to please but he did a very good job. He also sent in the post to us a souvenir of the night on a disc for us to keep which I thought was a nice touch. Once again Big Thank You to Russell."

A great add on was the photo's he took on the night and sending them in a disc to remember the night. Cheers Russell once again!"

    "From start to finish, our experience was excellent. Communications regarding quotation and then confirmation of booking, all excellent. Discussion re music choices, and guest profile, meant that the evening went down very well. DJ arrived in plenty of time to set things up before any guests arrived. Requests on the night were handled without problem, and photos taken will be awaited with much interest. Thanks I've received for a good night out, have all said how good the music was. Would not hesitate to book them again, and would recommend unreservedly."

    "Russell was great, he was flexible, reliable & very professional. He judged the tone of the evening perfectly & did everything possible to ensure the night was a success. The photos he took were the icing on the cake. We were so busy with the organising it was great to have someone take photos & provide valuable memories. Thank you!"

    "the DJ was fantastic. Friendly punctual did everything we asked of him and more. He played the songs we had requested on the booking for which was from a very niche genre and other djs I had quotes from had no idea what that music was!!!! He also played all the other songs that guests were requesting on the night and took lots of photos to help us remember the night. I will definitely use him for future events and recommend to friends"

    "Russell was the perfect professional, and considering some quotes received for my mum's 50th party, was exceptional value for money. He was the perfect gentlemen with all of our guests and played all requests if he had them. He also was great with my 2 year old when he wanted to take over the mic and stage! And played Old McDonald and Bob the Builder so Arthur could sing along :) The photos he took of the night is also a very nice touch and really looking forward to seeing them. I have no reservations in recommending Russell for your party - and hope we have an event in the near future where we can use his services again! Thanks Russell!!"

    "The DJ was polite and courteous and always responded to email/call before the event. He was all set up and arranged everything direct with the venue. He was very accommodating and got some sound clips I'd requested from TV shows to help with some games and I received a free disc with photographs his partner had taken on the night which was great. The only grumble is that I was charged 50GBP for an extra hour as the party went on past midnight and I didn't feel the guests could sit there in silence. I don't think it was the full hour as we finished quite soon after (though I may be wrong). I've gone back through the contract and no mention of this policy was made. But all in all a good DJ and would recommend."

    Apologies for the miss understanding on extra hours which we have now corrected however what a great party this was
