"Hear, See & Feel The Difference"

With passion for music and being an expert in Indie and Alternative (including rock, dance & hip hop variants) music is our main focus, giving us an individualistic edge. You and the music you want is our main focus, We can do pop too if you wish.

We feel sound quality is part of the experience of listening to music. So to compliment the music by making sure every week point over our systems are shored up opting for lossless audio WAVs over compressed MP3s (where available), whilst using professional grade audio equipment & sound expertise to push towards the best sound quality we can get out of the setups and PA we use.

We push for all elements of Djing, particularly when it comes to the music and style. For us we believe making the effort in lighting and sound makes all the difference, making sure our setups are some of the most stylish is really important, and one part of the over all experience to your event.

    "Ian was great, he played the songs I had provided as a playlist and I instructed him not to play novelty music such as The Macarena. I'm not sure if he got requests for this type of thing but a couple of staff members said he was rude when they requested certain songs, saying he was playing to a strict playlist. This was my instruction, however I think perhaps how it was put across could have been better. Other than that, he was great and I would definitely book him again."

    "Didn't play requests, or the right music for the event. Was up to date music, and not old skool. Which was the theme of the night. Basically paid for nothing."

    Alt. Entertainments responded to this comment as follows:

    This must have been a heartbreaking night for my client as she had arranged a Charity night, roughly 15 people turned up for a function that was supposed to be 180 I can't imagine the stress. I'm also sorry that I was oblivious to the theme, and I played to suit the crowd at the time. Perhaps My social anxiety was particularly at play that night which exasperated how I delt with requests, I will see if I can overcome this further. On the whole I would agree waste of time, so sad to see.
